5 Buzzy Gadgets from CES

Didn’t make the trip to Las Vegas this year for the International CES? Don’t worry, we found five hot products coming out of this year’s exhibition.

Garmin Vivofit

Price: $129.99 without heart monitor and $169.99 with heart monitor

Yes, another fitness band, but Lendino says this one is worth a second look. “This has an ‘always on’ screen and can apparently last for one year on a charge. They are selling this with a companion heart rate monitor and it operates based on goals.”

The fitness band sets up goals based on your activity levels and adjusts as you become more active. The device also reminds users to get up for a walk if they have been sitting for too long.

Orbotix Sphero 2B

Price: $99 for pre-order

This is a programmable robot, compatible to be controlled with iOs and Android-based smartphones.

“They are little balls that you can program to do certain things,” he says. “This has two tires on it, and goes over 10 miles per hour.”

LG Gflex

Price: Not announced yet, coming in 2014

This Android smart phone boasts a six-inch curved screen, that is supposed to improve its capabilities, Lendino says. LG says the curved nation of the phone follows the contour of the face and provides a better user experience.

“It has a 13 megapixel camera, and is available on AT&T (NYSE:ATT), Sprint and T-Mobile in 2014,” Lendino says.

Fuji Film Weather Resisting FinePix S1 Digital Camera

This compact camera has a “massive” 50x zoom lens, says Lendino, as well as a 16 megapixel image sensor. “It also has five-axis image stabilization, which helps reduce shakes,” he says, when taking photos. “It also has Wi-Fi and can shoot 10 frames a second in a burst mode.”

Toshiba Chromebook

This is Toshiba’s first foray into the Chromebook space, according to Lendino. The model weighs about three pounds with a 13.3-inch display and will be on store shelves later this year.
