Five Scenarios Where a Mobile Accessory Can Save the Day

Protecting your phone during life’s little adventures or keeping your home at the perfect temperature are just some of the ways accessories paired with your smartphone can make your life easier.

Consider these scenarios where mobile devices and their accessories can save the day.

Remotely control your home’s temperature

If you make an impromptu road trip, you won’t have to worry about your home energy bill with the Nest Learning Thermostat.

Nest lets you control the temperature in your home using your compatible mobile device, so you can avoid keeping your home too warm while you’re away. This thermostat also learns your schedule and programs itself to adjust temperatures when you’re not home.

Setup is a breeze, and Nest works with many heating and cooling systems.

Log your miles right from your wrist

It’s an unusually warm day in the middle of the winter, so you decide to go for a run. You want to log your miles, but really don’t want your bulky smartphone bouncing around in your pocket.

Solution: leave your smartphone at home and activate the GPS feature on your SmartWatch 3 by Sony. It will track your location, speed, distance, calories and more.

You can even take your tunes along for your jog. Just save your track to the watch’s 4GB of internal storage. Then pair the SmartWatch 3 with a Bluetooth headset to enjoy music while you run.

Rugged protection for an active lifestyle

But, you’re at a crossroads. While you need your adrenaline rush, you also need to stay connected. Able to keep pace with your daredevil ways, the LifeProof  frē Case will “life proof” your smartphone when things get a little crazy.

frē  technology safeguards your smartphone’s touchscreen with a built-in screen protector that’s virtually invisible to the eye and touch. The Lifeproof case keeps your device water proof, dirt proof, snow proof and drop proof.
