Gen Zers were practically born with smartphones in hand. Their uber-connected lifestyles mean that this generation has their fingers on the pulse of what’s in and what’s out. Luckily for them, some of the most innovative products on the market today offer built in tracking and connectivity functions.
Gen Z-ers are on the go; they have to navigate school, side hustle projects, and IRL social gatherings – and they need a proper carry-all to help them make those seamless transitions throughout the day. The new Udee backpack recently launched on Kickstarter and is the world’s most versatile backpack.
With 19 built-in features, including an earphone port, safety LED light, and carabiner, this bag is equipped to handle every environment, from airports, to hiking trails, and of course, the classroom. For a $109 pledge, you’ll save $120 on a Udee Pro version pack.
Although wireless earbuds may be the buzziest headphones on the market, many Gen Z-ers still want people to know when they’re tuning in – or out. With a similar aesthetic to Beats, but at a fraction of the price, Bluedio’s T3 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones are the perfect option for any young person.
Available in black, white, or red, these headphones offer comfort via memory foam ear padding as well as sound quality through 3D sound effects and a 57 mm titanizing diaphragm. Bluedio T3s retail at just $40, well below most high market headphones.
Away suitcases were designed for energetic, modern travelers. With an unbreakable shell, compartments that can turn even the most disorganized travelers into efficient packers, and built-in USB chargers, Away luggage is a sleek and functional option to carry travelers throughout their journeys. An Away carry-on currently retails at $225; a cost well worth the ease and efficiency it offers in return.
The only thing more annoying than low smartphone battery is a smartphone case that can’t protect your phone from a fall. The Nero battery covers both of these annoyances in one, sleek offering.
Available in five colors (black, gold, jet black, silver and rose gold) the Nero case provides an extra 120% of battery life to iPhone 7s. It also offers a dual-injected bumper to protect phones at every angle. The Nero is currently available on Amazon for $30.
For years, 10,000 steps a day was the baseline goal to maintain optimal health. Recently, doctors just increased that number to 15,000.
Gen Z-ers can make sure they get all of their steps in with the help of the Polar Loop. The Polar Loop is a stylish, waterproof tracker that monitors daily steps and sleep, and even keeps track of calories burned throughout the day.
Netflix is a staple in every Gen Z-er’s life. But binge watching Stranger Things is way more fun on a bigger screen. The ELEGIANT mini project enables you to stream your favorite shows across any surface. You can turn your dorm room or backyard into your own personal theater.
If you have an epic snowboarding run down the mountain but don’t document it, did it really happen? With the Drift Stealth 2 Mountable Camera, Gen Z-ers can effortlessly capture their extreme adventures. The small mountable camera is waterproof, making it the best accessory for any spontaneous excursion.
Getting stuck in a place without service is an all-too familiar frustration for everyone. The Gotenna makes it possible to text and access GPS without any bars. It’s a crucial accessory for any off-the-grid expedition.
Everyone knows they’re supposed to drink eight 8 oz glasses of water a day. But no one really wants to track this. Logging into tracking apps to document water bottle refills is a drag.
Luckily, the H20PAL Smart Bottle Hydration Tracker does all of the work for you. In addition to tracking, it can also send you reminders when your water consumption for the day is low.
Blemishes are an annoying and universal evil. But, thanks to Peter Thomas Roth, there’s a quick and easy way to fight them. These clear patches are formulated with salicylic acid and tea tree oil that targets acne and fights off redness and irritation.
These products are sure to be a hit with any Gen Z-er in your life. This age group lives fast-paced lifestyles, and these products are designed to help them navigate daily challenges and goals without slowing down.
