2012 Fall Gadget Guide
iPhone 5 may be dominating the headlines, but there are other great tech gadgets that have also turned our heads this fall. Whether you want to stream music, get connected or dress up a favorite toy with a new look, we have the lowdown on what’s in this season.
Who needs to get tangled up in cords when you could get “Tangled Up in Blue” – Bob Dylan style? Stream music wirelessly with the Nocs NS2 Air Monitors ($400) from Bloomingdale’s. You can’t miss the bright orange casing to brighten up a dreary day.
Color your music experience with Urban Ears Men’s Headphones ($60) – also from Bloomingdale’s. The clean, modern design is ideal for listening to favorite playlists on the go. It even comes with a ZoundPlug for listening with a friend.
Channel your own inner Monster with Lady Gaga headphones ($150) at Macy’s. The earbuds feature gold studs on a white base, perfect for listening to a little “Poker Face” on repeat.
Keep good time with a new line of watches from Phosphor ($225) featuring a space-age-style digital face and fashionable band that’s versatile enough to dress up or keep casual. It’s definitely a conversational time piece.
High-tech fitness never looked so good with Nike’s FuelBand ($150), a bracelet that measures your daily moves, whether you’re out for a walk at lunch, running to happy hour or meeting a new connection on Grindr. Hook this baby up to a smartphone app and track your progress through the week, month or year.
Channel your inner rainbow with the La Sardina Analogue Camera ($75) at Urban Outfitters. This handy cam specializes in lomography (real film and all) and features a stylish case and long exposure option for arty pics.
Wanna make a movie? Try the Hands-Free Video Camera ($180) from Neiman Marcus. This wearable cam may look like a Bluetooth device, but it captures clear video that can even be streamed live online.
Sure, it may only capture black-and-white images, but this top-of-the-line Leica M-Monochrom captures stunning photographs in 18 glorious megapixels for dark, dense images that will make any street photographer drool.
