These pieces of wearable technology are bound to be a hot gadget this holiday season. Demand for the Apple Watch hasn’t been as high as the company hoped, but among Apple aficionados, it’s still a sought-after piece of technology.
Android users don’t have to go without smartwatches, either. There are a few options already available and also as many as six new models are also slated to hit retail shelves before the holidays begin. The new Moto 360 has a particularly appealing design.
iPad Pro and Other Tablets
The iPad Pro is likely the most-awaited new tablet on the market, and will undoubtedly do well in holiday sales. Customers who want an iPad, but don’t want to pay the premium price for Apple’s newest tablet, will keep demand for past models up as well.
On the Android side of things, Google’s Pixel C tablet is expected to give the iPad Pro some solid competition. You’ll get a glimpse of this tablet in November, just in time for the busiest part of the holiday retail season.
Many wireless retailers are stocking high-end headphones to keep up with customer demand for products like the popular Beats line. Beyond Beats, other popular brands include Bose, Sony, Panasonic, and others.
Bluetooth and over-ear models have grown in popularity but earbud-style headphones are still in demand. Don’t forget to have other audio products on offer, either. Wireless speakers are another great holiday gift that customers can purchase from your wireless store.
People love data, especially when that data is all about their habits and routines. Wearable fitness trackers have earned a place in many consumers’ lives, so you’ll want to have a carefully curated selection of trackers for holiday shoppers to choose from.
Fitbit’s Charge HR features a heart rate monitor and more accurate data than many other models. Jawbone’s UP2 is great in it’s simplicity. For multisport adventurers, it’s hard to beat Garmin’s Vivoactive model, which looks like more of a smartwatch than a fitness tracker. If you want to learn more about fitness trackers this guide from Wareable.com is extremely helpful.
Other small technology accessories
Technology is expensive, and not every customer will be able to afford the price tag on certain premium tech products like tablets and smartwatches. That’s why it’s important to offer less expensive accessories alongside your more expensive items.
Cell phone cases and covers, tablet covers, chargers, and other smaller accessories are great gift options for customers who aren’t making big ticket purchases, and they’re also perfect for the customer who’s already buying a cell phone, smartwatch, tablet, or other pricey item.
