Tech gadgets you didn’t know you needed to boost your productivity 

It seems like there’s a tech gadget or app for everything these days. Whether you are deskbound day in and day out, or your job requires you to be on the road, you’ll likely already have your fair share of tech gadgets that make your work-life far easier. After all, productivity is the most sought-after goal for all of us in our careers. Payflex handpicks some of the best  and most innovative tech gadgets that will take your productivity to a whole new level, and solve some of your daily problems. 

1. An alarm clock that rewards you to get out of bed

Tired of sleeping through your alarms? Do you hit the snooze button over and over? We don’t blame you, modern clocks just make it way too easy for us to snooze! Meet the Ruggie Alarm Clock.  This revolutionary tech gadget will not only get you out of bed on time (you’ll literally have to get up!), it will reward you with daily motivation to keep you out of bed, and start your days off right!

2. A mug that keeps your coffee warm

Let’s face it, our days can get extremely busy very quickly. This means by the time you sit down to enjoy that much-needed coffee you made earlier, it is most likely cold. Ember’s patented technology allows you to set the precise temperature of your hot beverage, so you can enjoy your drink from the first sip to the last drop.

3. Glasses that protect your eyes

We often spend long hours in front of bright screens. High-intensity blue light and glare from screens is not good for your eyes. It can also affect the quality of your sleep. JINS SCREEN lenses block 25% of blue light. They have a clear tint, so you can wear them regularly. When you turn on “Night Mode” from your phone or computer, it dims your display to an unsightly warm tint.

4. A tech gadget that manages your stress

The Pip is a wireless biofeedback device which detects electrodermal activity (EDA). It works together with apps on your smartphone or tablet to help you measure, understand and with regular use learn to manage stress. The skin pores on your fingertips are extremely sensitive to changing levels of stress. Pip accurately captures these changes and through biofeedback, allows you to visualize them. By visualising your changing stress levels, you can try different techniques to control it.

5. A smart, reusable notebook

The Rocketbook Smart Notebook instantly connects and stores your notes, doodles and lists in the cloud with the free smart notebook app. No more notepaper guilt! Rocketbook products can be reused, so you can stop using your other paper notebooks and save trees. When paired with Pilot FriXion ink, the pages of your Core can be wiped clean with water and a cloth! You’re also able to immediately scan your notes, to-do lists, and out-of-this-world ideas.

6. A tech gadget that trains your posture

Hours spent hunched over a screen can create bad posture and contribute to back problems. The Upright GO is here to help. The comfortable strapless posture corrector is placed  on your upper back and reminds you to sit or stand up straight with a real-time gentle vibration reminder.  It’s small, light, and discreet. In combination with the app, it ‘trains’  your back so you can improve your posture over time.

7. Scan documents on the go

Doxie Go SE is everything you want modern scanning to be — clever, simple, and mobile. Gone are the days of crummy, complex, computer-driven scanners. Thanks to a small footprint, rechargeable battery, and expansive memory, Doxie fits your life — take Doxie with you and scan anywhere, no computer required.

8. Get fit while you sit

Add more strides to your day, burn calories and boost energy with the Cubii JR, which enables you to get fit while you sit.  The whisper-quiet design fits perfectly into your current daily routines. Pedal disruption free while you work, read, or watch TV.   The Cubii JR features an easy-to-read LCD monitor that displays your progress for easy tracking. Track your calories burned, distance traveled, rotations per minute, and active time. Each purchase includes a set of wheel stoppers to prevent your office chair from rolling while you pedal.

9. Make your screen come alive

Start tapping, swiping, and pinching on your laptop’s non-touch display with help from the AirBar Touchscreen Sensor from NeoNode. the AirBar snaps onto the bottom of your laptop’s screen with the included magnets, and it connects to your system via an attached USB Type-A cable.
