In 2015, we inched even closer to fully connected,
integrated digital lifestyles. No matter your level of tech
expertise, it’s safe to assume that you—or someone in
your family—explored cloud connected devices,
wearable technology, and other gadgets to simplify
And while smartphones have undoubtedly dominated
the tech landscape in recent years, 2015 saw an
impressive array of smartwatches, fitness devices,
tablets, and other nifty gadgets.
Below is our list of the top tech devices in 2015.
1) Apple Watch
If 2015 was big for wearable technology, than
smartwatches were the torchbearers of the movement.
We think the Apple Watch stood out as this year’s best
timepiece, thanks to its comprehensive list of features.
In fact, we think it’s everything you’d ever want in a
What really sets the Apple Watch apart from its
competitors is its ability to support other Apple devices
and iOS apps, and the numerous apps that have been
designed exclusively for the watch.
We expect big things for the future of smartwatches—
and the Apple Watch has laid the framework for years
2) Ring Video Doorbell
Those who haven’t heard of a digital doorbell, take
note. Ring allows you to use your smartphone to see
who is at your door before you open it.
Offering motion detection, notifications, and video
recording, the digital doorbell adds an extra layer of
security to your home and makes it so you’ll always
know when a package arrives—no matter where you
are in the world.
How does it work? The device uses a high definition
camera and your home’s Wi-Fi network to sound a
chime and send real-time video directly to your phone
when a visitor presses the Ring button. The device is
super easy to install, delivers high-quality video, and is
a nifty, futuristic-looking alternative to the traditional
3) Samsung Galaxy Tab S2
For years, Apple has dominated the tablet game—so
much so that “iPad” has become synonymous with
“tablet.” However, with the Galaxy Tab S2, Samsung
has released a device that rivals, and in some regards,
betters its main competitor. The tablet boasts a bright,
vivid screen, and a compact, comfortable design.
In addition to its near-perfect design, the Galaxy
places a heavy emphasis on productivity and storage,
making it a great choice for your tablet needs.
4) iOS 9
This one's not technically a device—however, it does
affect a huge chunk of personal technology
users. Over the past few years, Apple has gotten some
flak for their mobile operating system upgrades. For
example, when iOS 8 was released in September
2014, many frustrated consumers complained about
bugs and other issues that left devices inoperable.
So instead of taking their normal route and making
software bigger, Apple decided to make things smarter
The result? An intuitive, user-friendly upgrade that
improves battery life and keyboard layout, and makes
your iPhone easier to use.
5) Fitbit Charge HR
Rounding out our list is yet another piece of wearable
technology (we told you they were big in 2015). This
time around, we’re diving into the huge fitness-
wearable tech trend. And despite the countless
devices we saw, nothing was able to compete with the
Fitbit Charge HR, the best heart-rate band currently on
Fitbit is affordable, compact, and is compatible with
Windows, Apple, and Android phones. Between
nutrition-tracking, sleep-tracking, heart rate-tracking,
and social competitions with friends, this device has
set the bar high for personal fitness technology.
