The 1MORE Triple Driver small, sleek headphones. Unlike most portable models, they deliver excellent sound, with an earplug-like design that limits extraneous noise. The 1MORE Triple Driver also comes with nine pairs of earpieces to help the user find just the right fit.
Edifier R2000DB. These elegantly-designed Bluetooth speakers deliver very good sound quality and ease of use, masterfully converting any late-night gathering into an unforgettable party. They’re a good choice for the more critical listener in need of a wireless speaker for music and other audio content. This one ships as a pair, so your grad and her hipster friends can hear their favorite songs in stereo.
Nikon Coolpix S9900. This camera packs a 30x zoom into a relatively thin body. It also has a swiveling liquid crystal display, great for composing selfies and other hard-to-reach shots. It even has a good image stabilizer.
Sony FDR-X1000V. This dependable action cam is one of the best, and it’s a bit pricey, but very lightweight, easy to use, and shoots a 4K resolution video. It also has new-and-improved image stabilization, designed to counteract low-amplitude vibration, which Sony claims is a common problem when you shoot video from a drone. So, if your certain someone decides to capture an aerial view of himself, shaking with fear while zip-lining, it won’t be a problem – the footage itself won’t be jittery.
Apple Watch Series 3 38mm Smartwatch. An Apple Watch not only shows that the student is tech savvy (which is great for today’s start-up culture), but it also keeps them organized. The Apple Watch Series 3 is the latest version in Apple’s watch collection and it boasts some amazing features. It’s faster than previous generations — by about 70% — which means that apps launch quickly and the…MORE graphics are smoother. Students can use apps like the heart rate monitor and custom high-intensity interval training to stay healthy or conduct business by tracking meetings, sending emails and managing budgets.
Mosiso Laptop Shoulder Bag. It fits a 15-inch laptop and features spill-resistant gray denim that fits in with both casual and business looks. The inside has foam padding and a fluffy fabric lining to protect the computer from bumps and scratches. And there are side pockets to store a phone, notebook, and power adapter.
Display2Go Digital Photo Frame. The electronic signage black wood frame has a built-in speaker that allows users to play audio while cycling through a photo slideshow. The frame also has the ability to play video files. The digital photo frame also includes a white mat, tabletop or wall mount, and has 2GB of internal memory, allowing users to store files directly on the frame.
Logitech X300 Mobile Wireless Stereo Speaker. The speaker comes in copper, black, blue, pink and silver, and features a built-in rechargeable battery that powers five hours of continuous music. In addition to stereo sound, this speaker is wireless, and has a built-in microphone to double as a mobile speaker for phone calls.
Skylock. Perhaps your grad loves cycling. This is a smart bike lock with a built-in solar panel that recharges its battery. Skylock uses 256-bit eliptic-curve cryptography to keep bikes safe, and a touch interface to unlock. With a steel housing, Skylock is extremely durable and tough to break.
