The compact indoor surveillance camera Blink Mini records video with a razor-sharp resolution of 1080p and also offers support for motion detection with automatic smartphone warning and bidirectional audio. You can also pair it with a compatible Alexa-enabled device to view a live feed.
The Apple Watch SE is missing the blood oxygen measurement and the ECG. If these features aren’t important to you, you can save a few hundred dollars by not buying the Apple Watch Series 6 because the rest of the package is more or less the same and is great value for money.
Memories are precious and nothing beats the vintage appeal of having some of those memorable moments printed on paper. The Kodak Step Mobile Mini Printer lets you do this in a snap by simply connecting to your phone via Bluetooth and printing 2 x 3 inch, colorful photos.

The blue light filter smart glasses from Yogo Vision offer a number of advantages, e.g. B. Reducing eye fatigue and blocking the harmful ultraviolet light emitted by your pixel-heavy devices. Both the lens and frame are made of plastic, which means they are lightweight and look cool too.
The Zentrade range has an ultraviolet light (UVC) sterilization box that supposedly kills 99 percent of bacteria in just about 3 minutes. It can also be used as a 15W wireless charger with two charging pads, one for a smartphone and one for a smartwatch.
If I chose one, I’d go for the Google Pixel 4a. This is a smartphone that won’t break the bank. But more importantly, it’s extremely convenient, has clean software with loads of useful features, and very powerful cameras. Battery life is good too, and you can be sure that updates will be available for up to three more years.
Another tech gift idea I would consider this Mother’s Day would be a smartwatch. If there’s one smartwatch that has defined the entire segment, it has to be Apple’s. With its SE branding, Apple Watch SE continues the legacy of “more for less”. It has a very attractive design, feature-rich software, a ton of fitness-oriented features, and access to Apple’s vast ecosystem of health services.
However, if you want to get EKG and blood oxygen readings, you’ll have to spend a little more on the Apple Watch Series 6, which is again one of the best in the business.
