2016 has seen a number of new devices that will give Inspector Gadget a run for his money. Speaking of, below are some gadgets to give out this holiday season that will be worth every penny.

Video Consoles

The NES Classic Edition is the most popular video game console for 2016. Unfortunately, it is hard to come by. Those lucky enough to purchase one will set one back by $60. But it will cost a lot more if bought from eBay.


The most popular laptop in 2016 is perhaps the new MacBook Pro. But the noise it caused is not all good. If the recipient of the gift is an avid Apple user, then this laptop makes a great Christmas gift. Otherwise, try something else such as the Surface Pro by Microsoft. The MacBook Pro with Touch Bar sells for around $1800 while the Surface costs around $1300.


Samsung Gear S3 has a dual-core processor, Super AMOLED 278 ppi screen, 768MB of RAM, 4GB internal memory and the Tizen operating system. It also has sensors for heart rate, an accelerometer, barometer, gyro, and ambient light. The Gear S3, which still sports the popular circular bezel, sells for at least $299.

The Apple Watch Nike+ is a great gift for runners. It counts the rectangular screen, waterproof ability until 50 feet, and built-in GPS among its many features. It also comes in three different colors. One Apple Watch Nike+ edition is worth $369 to $399 depending on the size.

Smart Home Device

When it comes to smart homes, the race has mostly been between the Amazon Echo and Google Home. The Echo smart speaker has Alexa as voice assistant while Google Home has its Google Assistant. He Echo is a more experienced digital assistant. She also has thousands of tasks including text-free messaging and knowledge of around 60,000 recipes. The Echo is worth $180 while the Google Home can be had for $130.
