The ladies' choice: gadgets for gals

It’s no secret that there are gamer girls among us. These are the girls who instantly know the difference between a Razer Deathadder Chroma and the Logitech G502 Proteus Core, and which suits their playstyle more. And what about the DSLR dames, who flock to IT fairs and PC shows and use terms like ISO and bokeh and aperture that would have the average guy on the street scratching his head?

But there are also other girls who are simply coerced into coming by friends and boyfriends and husbands, who simply can’t give a care about the latest gadgets on the market. Are you one of them? Then allow us to change your mind with these recommendations of tech for ladies.

Bang and Olufsen B&O Play H8

When it comes to audio, there are few names more renowned than Danish company Bang and Olufsen. This company may be better-known for their home entertainment systems, but has nonetheless always been synonymous with premium build quality and uncompromising sound.

Depending on your preferences, you can take your pick of the litter from their headphone line. The H6 is an over-ear wired headphone, while the H7 is a wireless version. The H8 cuts the cord like the H7, but is an on-ear headphone rather than an over-ear, making it smaller and more portable. Nonetheless, whichever of the family you choose, they all have warm, balanced sound, and wonderfully plush lambskin leather, letting you wear them comfortably for hours on end. The only catch is, of course, you’ll pay a premium for such amazing build quality. But is it worth it? Certainly.

Polaroid Cube+

Instant cameras are so last century. The Polaroid Cube+ takes everything good about the Polaroid Cube, its predecessor, and as the name implies, packs even more greatness into a tiny, cubic shell. At just 35 square millimetres across, the Cube is small enough to slip into a pocket and bring anywhere with you -- to a beachfront party, on a bike ride, or on a romantic stroll in the park. 

The Polaroid Cube+ also comes with a magnetic base, allowing you to stick it quickly and easily to any magnetic surface -- perfect for sticking to the hood on long joyrides. While it doesn’t have an LCD screen, its new wireless capabilities let you sync it up to a smartphone or tablet, giving you wireless, real-time control over video settings. If you’re more of the outdoorsy type, the Polaroid Cube+ also comes with a wide range of accessories, including bicycle helmet mounts and lanyard attachment points, letting you capture the action anytime, anywhere.

Fitbit Surge

The conventional watch is all but dead. With smartwatches from Samsung, Apple, Asus and many more flooding the market, it seems like a watch that only tells the time is grossly under-equipped to handle the demands of everyday life. But if you want something that’s a little more rugged, or you’re an obsessive fitness junkie who keeps track of every single calorie burnt, then you’ll want a fitness tracker.

And there’s only one name that’s synonymous with fitness trackers: Fitbit. It’s got to the point where people are unaware of any other alternatives. And for good reason, too -- every member of their lineup simply oozes quality. If you want everything but the kitchen sink in your fitness tracker, go for the Fitbit Surge, their flagship model that includes GPS tracking, heart rate monitoring, email sync, Bluetooth volume controls, and more. If you’re looking for the barest essentials, the humble Charge will be more than sufficient for you. There’s a Fitbit to fit everyone out there -- now go out and get ‘em.

Nescafe Dolce Gusto Genio 2

There’s no better way to start the day than with a hot cup of coffee. Regardless of whether you call it joe, java, mud, or even kopi, a hot drink on a cold morning warms the body up like nothing else. Oh, and the caffeine definitely helps -- whether you’ve got to sit through a morning board meeting, or a presentation, or have to drop the kids off at school.

But percolating coffee is time-consuming, and getting coffee from outside can get very pricey very fast. So why not make your own? Nescafe’s Dolce Gusto machines get rid of the hassle of brewing coffee by using capsules instead. Just insert a capsule of espresso, cappuccino or macchiato, choose your desired amount of water, and marvel as the gorgeous aroma of freshly-brewed coffee fills your kitchen. Who says you have to go all the way to Tiong Bahru or some other hipster enclave to get top-of-the-line coffee? Dolce Gusto looks to satisfy all but the most diehard of coffee connoisseurs.
