10 Winter Gadgets Every Tech Lover Will Want This Year

Who wants to go outside when it’s cold and blustery every day, all day long? It’s bad enough you have to go out there to shovel the driveway every time the snow falls, and the last thing you want to do is spend any more time out there than what’s necessary. But then again, being stuck inside all winter can also become less exciting as the long winter sluggishly marches on.

This conundrum makes the winter season the best time for discovering new gadgets and tech trends. Here are ten gadgets and trends that will help make your time inside more bearable.
Tech Gadgets this winter

Warming Mouse

If you do any work at all on the computer in the winter, your fingers no doubt cramp up from the chill. But, with the Warming Mouse from Warm Me, cold fingers will be a thing of the past. This revolutionary mouse has a built-in heater that keeps your mouse-hand nice and warm, for those long days spent at your desk in the home office. It’s also great for people with rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions that affect the hands. At $59, it’s not much more than a good quality mouse without the heat.

Self-Warming Boots

On the occasion when you do venture outside this winter, you’ll want a good pair of boots to keep your feet warm. Even better, these boots from Columbia feature a brand new technology called Omni-Heat™. The Omni-Tech waterproof-breathable membrane uses your own body heat to keep your toes nice and toasty.

Text-Capable Gloves

In the winter, every time you take your gloves off to answer a text, make a call, or flip to the next song, it inevitably exposes them to bone-chilling cold. But, with the smart touch gloves from NuTouch, you can use your phone without having to remove your gloves. The reason is because the fingertips of these gloves are made using a conductive material so when you touch your phone’s screen, it’s just like doing it with your bare hand.

Portable Battery

Portable batteries for charging smart phones on the go are nothing new, but in the winter, it’s essential to have one if you leave home because the cold saps your battery much, much faster than warm weather. The Pebble Pro is unique in that it comes with a wide range of connectors, making it able to charge anything that’s powered by a USB cord, and fast.

Towel Warmer

Getting out of the shower on a frigid winter’s morning is practically a method of torture. Imaging how much better it would be if you had a nice toasty towel to wrap yourself in. That’s exactly what you get from the Therma Luxe towel warmer from Conair Home. Just put your towel in the Therma Luxe and in 20 minutes, your warm towel is ready for you.

Traction Support

If you live in an area that gets a lot of snow and you don’t want the hassle of putting chains or snow tires on your car, you could be placing yourself at risk of getting stuck. But for under $60, you can have the Trac-Grabber in your car for just this type of situation. It’s simple to install and even easier to use. And, once you’re clear, you can take it off and store it in your trunk until the next time you need it.

Bluetooth Earmuff Headphones

Listening to your favorite tunes while you’re shoveling the driveway is hard when your head is covered by a hat, scarf, and earmuffs. But, with the Bluetooth earmuff headphones from NoiseHush, you’ll be able to listen to your music, take your calls, and keep your ears warm all at the same time!

Edgy Baking Pan

Does everyone in your family battle for the crunchy edge pieces of brownie? How about lasagna? With the specially designed Edge Brownie Pan, every single slice of brownie or lasagna has its own edges. Just think, no more arguing over the crunchy end pieces! With this product, every time you bake you’ll enjoy a Christmas miracle.

The Ultimate Comfort Companion

Remember the Snuggie? This year, meet the next phase of its evolution – the Tuck. The Tuck is a three-in-one comfort companion that will be keeping you cozy all winter long. Use it one way as a blanket with warm foot pockets; use it another way as hooded cloak. Or bundle it together to turn it into a comfy pillow with its own built-in sleep mask.

Amplified Wi-Fi Router

If you have areas in your home where your Wi-Fi signal is spotty, treat yourself to the AmpliFi HD Wi-Fi Router and enjoy stronger connections and faster speeds everywhere in your home this winter. This small cube will revolutionize your online experience whether you’re on your laptop, tablet, gaming console, smartphone, or binge-watching your favorite streamed shows.
