There’s nothing quite like going outside when the weather gets chilly, so long as you have the appropriate gear. You’ll feel warm and comfortable wherever you may be if you were wise enough to buy Obermeyer women’s ski jackets on sale and get a good deal from this favorite winter gear.
Of course, not everyone will be out skiing and snowboarding or camping in the mountains. Staying in can be just as pleasurable if your home is heated and inviting. So, whether you’re a snowboarder or someone who prefers being outside in the snow, tech may provide all of the warm sensations.
Wi-fi Ultrasonic Humidifier
If you’re looking for a humidifier to take the dry air from your heater at bay, this Wi-Fi-connected model does more than moisten the air. You can use an app on your phone to control the mist output and monitor how much water is left in its reservoir, and that’s something you don’t get with basic models that may require you to check water levels now and then.
Dyson Pure Hot + Cool
If you want to be as warm as possible without the fumes of a standard space heater, this Dyson product is worth both its weight and your attention. It’s effectively an air purifier that heats up so you can stay warm. You can also use it as a fan or humidifier if those are more appealing than heat on any given day.
Knox Heated Mattress Pad
If you’re looking for a heated surface that doesn’t involve socks, this mattress pad provides eight hours of comfort. The machine-washable fabric is available in queen size only.
Volt Heated Scarf
A scarf with a battery pack and four heat settings doesn’t sound very comfortable. But this model can be wrapped around your neck or attached to your coat as you go from place to place. It’s the best option for those who want an alternative to winter boots.
Zippo Rechargeable Hand Warmer
While not exactly a gadget, this hand warmer may be charged using a USB. The Zippo model has no flame, which makes it safe to use. It takes about three hours for the rechargeable model to get up to five hours of heat.
Not all solar-powered devices work during the winter. However, this lamp comes with a USB to hold its charge and an electric generator when you’re away from a power source. The solar panel is on the back, making it easy to prop up the illumination tool and point it in any direction.
North Face Etip gloves
While these gloves don’t have a smart-tech feature, they’re a must-have for anyone who will be outside in the cold. The Etip gloves are touchscreen compatible and made of a water-resistant material that wicks away moisture from your hands.
Under the Weather ShieldPod
This product isn’t available for sale yet, but it’s worth keeping an eye on. The shield pod is made of conductive carbon that provides heat without any wires.
Tivoli iPal Outdoor Speaker
This may not look like much, but this small speaker is equipped with a battery that provides up to eight hours of charge. That’s plenty of time for playlists on your phone or laptop when you’re spending time outside in the cold.
Philips Hue Go
This device is a portable lamp placed near you or in another room and controlled from your smartphone. The built-in battery lasts up to three hours when used on high, but it can also be charged using USB.
Utorch Portable LED Camping Lantern
Another type of portable light, this lantern is rechargeable through USB with a lifespan of up to 30 hours. The collapsible design makes it easy to transport and stow away once you’re done using the camping light.
GOAT Story GINA Outdoor Watch
This watch is for outdoor enthusiasts who want to stay connected without bringing along a bulky device or spending too much time interacting with technology. The GINA watch can stream music and track your location, but it only needs one button press to access those features.
What it does: This watch can be used as an activity tracker, a way to stream music from your phone to a Bluetooth speaker and a locator. It has touchscreen capabilities that allow you to access the other features without pulling out your phone.
While these gadgets are fun to read about, you shouldn’t get distracted by them. Make sure your family is prepared for the winter months ahead before investing in any new technology or products.
