Deal Of The Day: Wireless Bluetooth Cloud Buds For $25

redesign_BluetoothCloudEarbuds-MF2

No one likes wires. They’re slowly being phased out as the technology becomes smaller and more efficient, but one of the better ways to ensure they go faster is to show manufacturers that there’s a healthy demand for products like that. Fortunately, you won’t have to spend a lot to do so, as these Wireless Bluetooth Cloud Buds show. For $25 you can listen to your music… almost without wires. The buds themselves connect to your phone through Bluetooth, but they’re still tethered to one another with a cable. Still, you’ll get 6 hours of playback time from a pair of lightweight earbuds that also allow you to take calls. They come with multiple sizes of gel buds to accommodate different ears, and there are optional ear hooks to secure them to your ears. That’s a lot of functionality for the price of four Starbucks drinks, so don’t miss out!

Umbrella Packs Bluetooth, So You Don’t Leave It Behind

davek-alert-umbrella

Like most people, we like to get cheap umbrellas so that we don’t feel too bad the next time we forget them somewhere. And that happens often enough, so it’s not necessarily being overly cautious. But if we wanted to get an umbrella that isn’t made from cheap materials, and doesn’t turn inside out the second the wind picks up, we’d have to consider the Davek Alert Umbrella. There’s a Bluetooth chip in its base, powered by a watch battery with a life of 1-2 years, which will connect to your phone automatically. Then, once it senses you’re more than 30 feet away, you’ll get a notification alerting you that you might be leaving it behind. Sure, there’s the possibility you’ll get notified if you simply walk to the kitchen after leaving the thing in the entrance lobby, but you can just dismiss it and carry on, we suppose. At $80, the Davek Alert Umbrella isn’t cheap, but you should know it’s made by a company that sells even more expensive umbrellas, and has been doing so for years; presumably their stuff isn’t low quality, and your pledge is safe with them.

Ditto Is A Simple Button, Adds Lots Of Functionality To Your Phone

If you’ve no intention of buying a smart watch (and really, you shouldn’t), you can still enjoy some of the benefits at a fraction of the price. Ditto is a simple-as-pie button that contains nothing more than a battery, a vibration module and a Bluetooth module. But what it does is allow you to customize which notifications make it through to your attention, and which stay on the phone. With the app, you can customize the vibration pattern to alert you of pretty much anything you like and care about, from getting a new Tinder match to getting a phone call from the wife. Whatever it is, Ditto will alert you if it’s important to you, so that you can put your phone away and stop obsessing. If you’re like pretty much everyone else, this will instantly seem like a great idea, considering the sheer number of notifications we get for just about everything. Additionally, you can use Ditto as a proximity tracker, which will vibrate when your phone gets out of range.

For $29, there are far more expensive ways to get one of the more important functionalities found in a smart watch.
