With their cordless design and perfect connection, Bluetooth-equipped devices bring a new ease to luxury travel. Whether you’re looking for a new pair of great headphones or tech to keep you fit on the road, here are four Bluetooth devices to upgrade your luxury travel.
1. Apple AirPods
A great pair of Bluetooth headphones, such as the new Apple AirPods that accompany the iPhone 7, are crucial to an enjoyable travel experience. You won’t have to worry about tangled wires and the crisp, clear sound experience will drown out any crying babies or loud talkers on the plane.
A small chip in the AirPods senses when they’re in your ear and pause as soon as you take them out. With just 15 minutes of charging, you have three hours of listening. So, even if you’re running late, fully charging your AirPods takes no more than 30 minutes. While on your flight, you can seamlessly switch between multiple Apple devices, like your iPhone, iPad and MacBook, without having to reconnect your headphones every time.
2. Fitness Trackers
Staying in shape while traveling is a challenge. Between the new restaurants you’ll be trying, luxurious desserts and exotic drinks, it’s difficult to keep fitness a priority. However, you can monitor your daily steps, miles covered and calories burned with a wearable fitness tracker.
Keep an eye on your numbers throughout the day by connecting your tracker via Bluetooth to sync and store your fitness information on your smartphone. If you track your daily activity, you’ll be more motivated to skip the cab on the way to dinner or plan a walking route for sightseeing when you haven’t reached your daily step goal.
3. Portable Speakers
Portable Bluetooth speakers are the perfect gadget to upgrade your trip. You can play your favorite tunes while hanging out in your hotel room, enjoying a picnic at the park, lounging on the beach or going on a hike. With Bluetooth technology there’s no need to worry about cords attached to your smartphone or having to find an outlet for power. If you want to take it a step further, invest in waterproof speakers like Fugoo that can be played while you’re poolside, on a boat or even in the shower.
A smartwatch is the perfect travel companion. Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, navigating through a new city or a foreign country is difficult and overwhelming. A smartwatch provides you with turn-by-turn directions from your wrist, keeping you hands-free while driving. It also helps you balance the need to disconnect from technology and stay updated with work, family and friends. You can receive notifications for phone calls, texts and emails, and then decide if you want to ignore them and live in the moment or address ones that are important. A smartwatch also enables you to play music (straight to your new Bluetooth headphones), manage your flight and check in to your hotel.
Best of all, you can up your personal style with your smartwatch’s sleek and fashionable design and interchangeable wristbands.
