Top 5 Smart Accessories

Good morning! I am hopping on a 7:15 flight this morning and heading to Orlando! I will check into the Grand Floridian, and then the press event will begin after lunch. Be sure to follow me on Twitter, instagram, and Facebook via the social media icons on my right sidebar of my blog. I will be live tweeting/etc. the event Thursday and Friday and you won’t want to miss the new information I will be posting! Also don’t worry, while I am gone I have some great guest posters who will be taking over my blog (I will also be popping in on a couple of days to post about press event info I learn). Be sure to show them some love!

I recently spoke about getting the new Blackberry Z10 smart phone. There was a bit of a learning curve, but I have enjoyed getting to know my phone. Now that I have used it a good bit, it’s time to think about accessories! here are five accessories that I found that I would love to try out for various reasons:

Nokia JBL Power Up Speaker– This is a wireless charging speaker with Legendary JBL® sound in a compact design. You can wirelessly charge your device simply by placing it on top of the speaker. It is also compatible with any Bluetooth®-enabled device.

LG wireless charging Bluetooth headset- This accessory features a solid, durable look and feel built into a compact and lightweight design. The geometric mesh surface is the contact point for Wireless Charging. The Power/Call button and Volume buttons are placed well for easy access while wearing the device.

Fitbit one- I have the FitBit zipp, but would love to try this one! During the day, it tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and stairs climbed. At night, it measures your sleep cycle to help you see how to sleep better; and it can even wake you in the morning without waking other in your home. Your stats upload wirelessly to your computer and select mobile phones.  You can set goals, and track progress while competing with your friends.

Lifeproof armband- I already have a lifeproof case, so this armband would be great to have so I could wear it while I run instead of holding my phone. Made from breathable spandex, the wide strap and non-slip silicone dots keep it stable and comfortable as you move. The Velcro strap adjusts to fit most, and it’s also lightweight. Reflective markings make you more visible when training after dark.

Tagg pet tracker- This is a purpose-built tracking device that helps pet owners find and track their pet. The pet owner tells the Tagg system where they want their pet to be, and  if the pet ever leaves the Tagg zone, the owner receives text and email alerts. Tagg’s innovative technology quickly pinpoints the pet’s location using a mobile device or computer. The Tagg master kit includes three months of service. After the first three months, service costs $7.95/month and includes unlimited alert notifications

Blackberry Z10

I so so excited to be asked to be a Verizon Wireless Ambassador again, and was stoked when I found out we were getting the all new Blackberry Z10!

I am pretty stubborn and set in my ways, so I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this new phone. I have never owned a Blackberry before, but I can honestly say I really like this phone!

I have a ton I want to say about this device, but for today I just wanted to share a couple of my favorite features:

Blackberry Hub

The Blackberry Hub is where all of your notifications go for accounts you add to it such as Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter. You can see all of your recent notifications with the swipe of a finger and decide who you need to respond to. Not only do you get to see your recent notifications, but you can respond to these notifications RIGHT FROM THE HUB without having to then go and open that app or e mail account. it’s pretty epic and makes my life so much easier.

Time shift camera mode:

This is by far my favorite feature. Basically the way it works is when you take a photo in this mode, it takes the photo over a period of a few seconds and then you can go back and pick the exact second where the photo is the best (no blinking, perfect smile) and save that as you final product. LOVE it especially for my husband Mr. blinky. It’s also great for those action shots of kids or pets.

QOTD: Would you ever part with your current phone? Ever had a Blackberry?

*Disclaimer: I was provided 3 months of free service as well as the Blackberry Z10 phone from Verizon, however all opinions are 100% my own.
