As the Christmas rush hits overdrive, the TORRO team have hand-picked their top tips for tech gifts by scouring the net for best value and great spec to treat your loved ones this Christmas.
Top of our list
At £299 the Apple Watch Series 4 really is a bargain. The latest Apple Watch is the series 5 but it is basically the exact same device as the series 4 other than the ‘always on feature’ exclusive to the series 5. Having owned both devices we can say it isn’t a killer feature so the Series 4 is the best value smartwatch money can buy. The series 3 at £199 is also a bargain but at £299 it’s worth the extra cash for a more modern device with a larger screen.
Next up, the latest in the standard ‘non Pro or Air’ iPad line up is the 7th Generation with 10.2” diagonal screen. For non-business or commercial use, this is an extremely powerful and quick tablet and proves to be outstanding value at only £349. Sharp, vivid, responsive and Apple Pencil compatible.
Pair with the TORRO leather stand folio cover to complete the look, available in 5 leathers - Tan, Dark Brown, Red, Black and Black with Red stitching.
For smartphones we are going to take a detour from Apple and go Pixel 3 / 3 XL. The Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL is now last years flagship Google handsets but that doesn’t make them any less impressive. The camera won many awards in 2018 and is packed with current components and is technologically relevant in everything but name. The Pixel 3 range can be picked up at only £399 refurbished.
For laptop ideas we looked at 1990s favourite Dell. The new Dell Inspiron 137386 Convertible Laptop is a fantastic piece of tech and can be picked up from John Lewis at a reasonable £749.95. Packing an intel core i7, 8GB ram, 256 SSD this really is MacBook pro territory with the versatility of tablet convenience and beating the Microsoft surface on tech specs per £.
This comeback kid offering from Dell would be the perfect pairing for the TORRO 13 inch laptop bag which is stylish, slim and light and comes in 3 leathers.
We also have a set of Air Pod wannabies to finish our selection. The Sound core Anker Liberty Air True-Wireless Earphones come with a Charging Case, Bluetooth 5, 20 Hour Battery Life, Touch Control Earbuds, Graphene Enhanced Sound and a Noise-Cancelling Microphone. We think these are a very stylish and budget substitute to the Air Pod Pros without having to compromise too much, these headphones come in at £79.99
The TORRO pairing for this accessory is the genuine leather the genuine leather Headphone Pouch complete with clip, a perfect accessory to safely carry your headphones on the move and clip onto a travel or gym bag.
