The best electronic gadgets to offer for Christmas

GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT) — Keeping up with all the latest technology releases can sometimes be difficult.

To the rescue, there’s usually someone who knows more about them than you’ll ever know. That’s why you need a list of what to buy.

So look no further. Here are some of the most worthy electronic gadgets of 2021.

Magnetic phone holder with face tracking

Belkin’s auto-rotating stand streamlines a number of everyday tasks that involve phones, like tracking workouts, Face Timing with mom while cooking dinner, or catching up on late-night clips while putting away laundry.

Bose frames

Bose frames keep the load light on a sunny day by combining two essentials: sunglasses and wireless headphones. The frames have small speakers that blast music into your ears, undetectable by anyone.

PlayStation Classic

Not all tech giveaways have to feature new technology. What could be better than giving a gaming fanatic the opportunity to relive the glory days of the original PlayStation console? This re-release is a mini version that has 20 games (think Final Fantasy VII and Resident Evil) loaded onto it. A blast from the past, if you will.

OrbitKey Nest

On its surface, Nest is a wireless charger for Qi-enabled devices. Inside, it offers plenty of storage for technical accessories. The tangle of cords, lugs and hubs will be no more.

mBot Robot Kit

Teach children the joys of artificial intelligence from the start. mBot is a programmable playmate that uses STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) coding skills to function and move.

Tello quadcopter drone

A budget option, DJI’s Tello, makes a great gift for someone new to the world of drones. It includes a 5 megapixel camera and can fly for 13 minutes on a single charge.


From small-space dwellers to tech junkies, the Mirror Workout Device is a stylish and engaging way to get that heart rate up. From streaming live and on-demand workout classes to connecting to your Apple Watch to collect your exercise stats, this discreet yet powerful technology is a gift that keeps on giving.

Video doorbell 3

Give your home a “smart” welcome with Amazon’s Ring Video Doorbell, which connects to Alexa and lets you operate the camera and chat with visitors via the Echo Show app, Fire TV or Ring.
