2015 Top Five Holiday Gift Gadgets

Here are my top five electronic gadgets for 2015 holiday gifts! Everyone from mom, dad and the kids will enjoy these fun electronic gifts this holiday season.

Self-balancing Two-wheel Electronic Scooter 

Self-balancing electronic scooter
This is one of the hottest electronic toys of the 2015 holiday season! And after witnessing my 12 year old son testing a neighbors Segway-like handle-bar free scooter over Halloween, it is now on my top family gifts this holiday season. I'm hoping it will be included in Amazon's Lightning Deal or Black Friday, because it's a little pricy right now. 

Highlights about the electronic two-wheel scooter:

  • Goes about 10 miles per hour
  • Holds about 220 lbs
  • Battery life is about 20 miles
  • Easy to learn how to ride

Fitbit Charge HR Wireless Activity Wristband

Fitbit Charge
This is on the top of my list this Christmas! You can track your heart rate, workouts, floors climbed, steps walked and monitor your sleep. I'm actually considering getting my 11 year old daughter who has type one diabetes one. She plays soccer. I'd love to see if her blood sugar rises as her heart rate increases and if we can use the Fitbit heart rate monitor to predict her blood glucose variations.


  • Monitor your heart-rate
  • Track workouts, heart rate, distance, calories burned, floors climbed, active minutes and steps
  • Monitor your sleep
  • Silent alarm allows you to wake
  • Sync Fitbit stats wirelessly and automatically to your computer and over 150 leading smartphones

Amazon Echo

This is one amazing electronic gadget! It answers your questions such as what is the weather today or is there traffic on route I-77 or who won the Monday Night Football Game. It's connected to the cloud so it is continuously learning. I like that it can share your daily calendar and the weather without having to log on to your computer.

  • Controlled by your voice
  • Connected to the cloud
  • Plays music and shares information such as traffic, weather, audio books, sports and more instantly. 

Apple Watch

Apple Watch
The Apple Watch is one amazing gadget. You can receive and send notifications such as text messages. Pay for your groceries. Track your workout. Get directions. Play music. What is even more impressive is how many different styles and looks are available. There is even a Mickey Mouse watch. Brilliant addition for all those Disney fans.

  • Get notifications
  • Siri question and answer response
  • Play music
  • Secure payment option

Roku 3 Streaming Media Player with Voice Search (2015 Version)

streaming media player
By by cable television! Roku 3 is the ultimate streaming media player with access to over 250,000 movies, TV episodes, games, music, sports, kid programming and more! I've never tried it, but would love for people to share their experiences. From what I read it has voice search, headphones for private listening, point-anywhere ease of use and motion control for gaming. 

  • 2,000 streaming channels
  • 1080p stunning HD video as well as Ethernet, USB and microSD card ports
  • Headphones for private listening
  • Motion control for gaming
