I tried to select useful items that I feel could make life a little easier for some people. I added a few just plain cool items but the majority are useful new gadgets that are great for camping or emergency situations.
1. Tile Mate Tracking Device.
This item made our Best New Cool Gadgets list has been around for a few years now but it’s a Tech gadget worth mentioning again and putting it at the top of our list. If you are like me and lose your keys around the house then this cool gadget is for you.

2. Bear Grylls Bushnell SolarWrap Mini
The SolarWrap Mini is another handy item to have around especially if you do a lot of camping and hiking in the great outdoors where electricity is not often available. You bring a number of smart devices with you and you have no way to charge them when the battery dies.
There are a number of devices like portable speakers that will charge your device but once that charging device is dead you will need electricity to recharge it. Also, some speakers can be quite heavy.
The Bear Grylls Bushnell SolarWrap Mini is an incredibly compact device that charges with sunlight and is a great solution to this problem. You can lay it out in the sun if you’re in one spot or drape it over your backpack so it will be continuously charging and ready to charge your devices when needed. Very light and can be rolled up to take up minimum space. Great safety device to have around the house in case of a power outage.
Great gift for Campers and Hikers.

5 Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch
With my personal trainer background, I found that most people hire a personal trainer for accountability and motivation after a few sessions you should have learned proper form and technic. This can get quite expensive over the long run and results may be poor if you are not following up your exercising with a clean diet.
The Fitbit Blaze can be just the motivation you need if you don’t need a human to give you instructions. The Fitbit Blaze provides you with a number of personal monitoring capabilities that can help motivate your fitness journey safely. This watch will track your activities throughout the day.
It will monitor your heart rate; this will allow you to track your resting heart rate and your active heart rate and let you know when you should be pushing it or slowing down.
The Fitbit Blaze tracks the number of steps you take in a day or monitor your heart rate a calorie burn in any number of activities, like Kickboxing, Circuit Training, Yoga, Golf, Biking and a number of others activities.
Some fitness monitors in the past struggled with monitoring weight lifting but this new generation is much improved and can truly monitor activity in a number of sports.
No water sports are mentioned because this watch is water-resistant and not waterproof so you can get it only a little bit wet. It will also monitor your sleep patterns to help make you better aware of the quality of your sleep.
This will enable you to make certain daily adjustments to improve your sleeping score. Everyone’s a winner. Don’t worry about all your new activity that you will miss any calls, text or emails.
The Fitbit Blaze will notify you if any come in. Many compare the look to the apple smartwatch but the Fitbit Blaze is a first and foremost a fitness tracker and not a smartwatch.
This watch has a number of personal monitoring features that the Apple Watch does not have and was designed for an active user. So if you’re looking for a watch to get you motivated then try out the Fitbit Blaze.
