Shopping Guide: High-Tech Gadgets to Help Mom

Whatever you need, your mom’s there for you, day or night, no matter what.  Whether it’s cheering you on at your sporting events, babysitting your children to give you a break or just being there to listen or to give you advice, she’s got your back.

What better way to say "thanks" than a gift that helps her maximize her time and brings convenience and ease to her life? Check out this list of mobile tech accessories from Verizon that will do just that.

An audio background for her day - Bose® SoundLink® Color Bluetooth® Speaker

Is Mom a music lover? Then the Bose® SoundLink® Color Bluetooth® Speaker will have her singing. A portable model that’s easy to toss in a purse or tote bag, the speaker produces full and lifelike sound.

Pair it wirelessly to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously – when the first device stops playing the second can start. Result: Mom can switch between the paired devices quickly to, for example, listen to her favorite news program streaming from her phone. Then, when the mood strikes, she can switch to her favorite playlists stored on her tablet.

The SoundLink Color speaker has a range of about 30 feet and includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery for up to eight hours of playing time.

Added piece of mind - Canary Home Security System

Give Mom the tools to protect what she loves most with the Canary Home Security System. It’s a complete home security system in one smart device, and installation is a breeze.  Just place it on a shelf or table in a central location within your home, plug it in and connect to your WiFi. Then, download the free Canary app.

When something out of the ordinary happens, Canary sends a notification with recorded HD video to let Mom know.  She can then decide to sound the alarm, call the police, or ignore it.

Canary learns from her responses to the alerts it sends. As Canary gets smarter, its notifications will become more relevant, and the number of false alarms will decrease.

Convenient access to her calls and music - LG TONE PRO

Whether on the way to the office or just doing errands around town, the LG TONE PRO™ wireless stereo headset will keep pace with Mom and stay comfortably in place as she goes about her daily routine.

Sleek and lightweight, the TONE PRO features a 3D NeckBehind™ wearing style so it’s comfortable through all-day use. An Advanced Multipoint feature enables simultaneous connection to two devices, such as a smart phone and Bluetooth-enabled audio player, making it easy for Mom to quickly switch back and forth between her calls and her music.

Calls are delivered clearly thanks to a digital MEMS microphone, echo cancellation and noise reduction, while aptX and Quad-Layer Speaker Technology ensure an exceptional audio experience.

Controls are within easy reach on top of the headset for intuitive call and music management.

Extra power when it’s most needed - mophie  juice pack air

Mom’s always on the clock and so is her smart phone.  She uses it to take calls from her colleagues and her kids, stream audio while she’s training for a 5K and keep in touch with friends on social media. Help her phone keep up with her day’s demands with the mophie juice pack air.

This durable yet lightweight case for iPhone® 6 provides gives Mom’s phone the power it needs. The case can deliver more than 100% extra battery with the simple flip of a switch. So, if Mom knows she’ll be snapping lots of pictures later in the day at the school play or baseball game, she can choose to conserve power for when it’s needed most.

The juice pack air also has a durable outer-band, raised bezel edge and rubberized support pads, providing extra phone protection should it accidentally be dropped.

Getting healthy and staying fit – Fitbit® and Garmin vivofit™

Mom tends to keep busy, so she should at least get credit for all of her extra steps. Learn more about our fitness-related Mother’s Day gifts below.

The Fitbit® Flex tracks her steps taken, distance covered and calories burned and uses LED lights to show how she’s stacking up against her daily goals.  By logging on to Fitbit.com or using the Fitbit App, she can log food consumption, weight and weight changes and additional workouts.

Fitbit Flex can also keep tabs on her sleep patterns or wake her gently in the morning.

The Flex wristband is comfortable enough to be worn on her wrist 24/7, from dusk till dawn. And, if Mom wants a different look, she can take the tiny tracker out and put it into any of Flex's colorful bands (sold separately) to fit her mood.

Similar to the Fitbit Flex, the Fitbit® Charge wristband also tracks Mom’s activity, sleep and calories burned and has a gentle wake alarm. It too can be used with Fitbit.com or using the Fitbit App to log her stats and help her stay the course.

An OLED display (screen that works without backlighting) displays Mom’s stats, as well as Caller ID information generated by a paired smart phone. Next time she’s gets a call while she’s out for a jog, she can glance at her wrist instead of fumbling for the phone in her pocket, then decide whether or not to take the call at that time.

Another option in fitness trackers, the Garmin vivofit™ fitness band is a watch and a personal fitness coach rolled into one.

It too can help Mom keep track of her physical exertion and sleep habits and also challenge herself to reach new goals. The vivofit has an adjustable band and is water-resistant up to 50 meters.

It can record her data and display real-time stats, along with the current time, on an easy-to-read display.
