Looking for the perfect wedding gift for the couple who loves the latest tech? We’ve rounded up a few options that are sure to be more memorable than anything on the registry.
Somneo Sleep and Wake Up Light by Philips
Inspired by nature, the Somneo Sleep and Wake Up Light (MSRP $199) allows you to wake up and fall asleep to simulated simulated sunrises and sunsets, improving your mood and making it easier to get out of bed in the morning. You can wake up to music or a selection of nature sounds, and wind down at night with guided breathing exercises.
Joule Sous Vide
Cook perfect food every time with the Joule Sous Vide (MSRP $199), the smallest and smartest of its kind. Use it to cook juicy meat, crunch veggies, yogurt, and even crème brûlée. The Joule app (iOS and Android) includes a Visual Doneness feature that shows you how your food will turn out at various settings before you get started, as well as simple guides and videos to help you as you prepare your food.
The latest small smart speaker from Amazon, the Echo Dot (MSRP $49) is the perfect addition to any room of the home. With the Echo Dot you can ask Alexa to check the weather forecast, set a timer, add items to your shopping list, play music, control compatible devices in your home, and much more.
Vector Robot by Anki
Touted as “a home robot that hangs out and helps out,” Vector by Anki (MSRP $249) is a delightful desktop companion that’s perfect for anyone who can’t have a real pet, or just enjoys having a bit of whimsical fun around the house. Vector can recognize faces and respond to your voice commands, and navigate his domain without bumping into things. His sensors mean he won’t drive off of your desk, and when his battery is low he’ll drive himself to his charger. Vector can help with simple tasks like setting a timer or showing you the weather in any city (and does so in the most adorable way possible), but the joy of ownership comes from watching him explore and go about his day—playing with his cube, asking you for a fist bump, and responding to your touch. Starting December 17th Vector will be compatible with Alexa, opening up a whole new world of tasks he can help with.
Tile Pro with Replaceable Battery
Never misplace your keys or phone again with the Tile Pro (2 pack MSRP $59), now available with a replaceable battery. Use the app to find the Tile Pro when it’s close by but can’t be found (keys in the couch cushions, anyone?), and use the Tile Pro to make your phone ring—even when it’s on silent.
iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum
Featuring intelligent sensors, virtual wall barriers, and Alexa and Google Home compatibility, the iRobot Roomba 690 (MSRP $374) is one powerful robot vacuum. The app allows you to start cleaning or adjust the vacuum’s schedule, view Clean Map reports, and more.
Vitamix 3500 Ascent Series Smart Blender
The Vitamix 3500 Smart Blender is compatible with Vitamix self-select containers, meaning the base always knows what size of container you’re using and adjusts its five programmable settings (Smoothies, Hot Soups, Dips & Spreads, Frozen Desserts, and Self Cleaning) according to your container size, processing your food and automatically stopping when complete. The iOS and Android app unlocks additional blending options and recipes.
The Frame TV by Samsung
When The Frame from Samsung (55″ MSRP $1,999) is in Art Mode, this 4K UHD smart TV becomes a beautiful display for digital art, blending in with your decor. Choose from Samsung’s art collections, or add your own. The Frame can hang flush against your wall like a real picture frame, and you can customize the frame color (dark wood, light wood, white or black) to match the room.
