Hot new Verizon gadgets for spring breakers


Travel Smart With These Must-Have Tech Essentials.

Following a blast from the Polar Vortex in much of the country this year, we’re all looking forward to getting away for spring break. Travel smart with these must-have tech essentials to make your time off extra enjoyable and stress-free:

●       Have a problem keeping track of things, especially when on the go? Try using a smart tracker from Tile or the Samsung SmartThings Tracker. Place one of these devices in your suitcase, wallet or backpack to keep an eye on your belongings even when they’re not in sight. Both offer long-lasting battery life. The Samsung SmartThings Tracker works standalone on the Verizon 4G LTE network, meaning you could track your luggage on its journey even when your phone isn’t anywhere near your suitcase.

●       Spend more time taking in those special vacation moments with the Google Pixel 3 from Verizon. With a best in class camera and a wide angle selfie, you’ll take the perfect photo every time. And if you’re traveling overseas, just say, “Hey Google, be my French interpreter,” and it will translate for you in real time - Oui!

●       Thinking of heading for the beach? How about some tunes to keep the entire family entertained? The JBL Flip 4 offers superior sound quality and up to 12 hours of battery to keep the party going. With a durable, splash-proof exterior, the device can even withstand being submerged in water.

●       Keep family harmony in the car with the JBL Kids Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones. These brightly colored wireless headphones allow your young ones to listen to their own music, thus preventing backseat arguments. And don’t worry about eardrum damage. Your kids will only be able to crank them up to 85 decibels.

●       Worried about your home while away? Get the inexpensive Canary View to keep an eye on your home even when you’re in another time zone. This home monitoring solution will alert you to motion, provide a live HD look into your home and allow you to speak two-way should you have a neighbor checking in on our pets. It’s also compatible with Amazon’s Alexa.

Enjoy your spring break, and travel safe with your tech!
