The Hottest Gadgets for 2017 – Digital Walker

Earlier this week, I was invited to the Digital Walker Christmas Party where I also had a chance to see some of the hot products they have for 2017.


Perhaps one of the most exciting things to look forward to at the end of every year are predictions on what would be in vogue in the next 365 days.

Digits, the company behind Digital Walker, has always been at the forefront of technological innovation in the country and its CEO, Charles Paw, the country’s “tech curator”, is always five steps ahead of every fad by bringing in gadgets and accessories Pinoys would go crazy over. “We are excited to reveal our ‘Top Picks for 2017’. This list features the products that we believe will best exemplify our focus and commitment to continuously be the country’s premier provider of the best tech accessories from around the world,” said Paw.

Gadgets have really come a long way, coming in all specs and sizes to perfectly complement whatever lifestyle one is living. As the year comes to a close, here’s a quick look at gadgets we can look forward to in 2017 from Digital Walker:

For the sporty and active

Athletic folks will get a kick out of the all-new Fitbit Charge 2 (PHP 8,490.00), an upgrade from the most popular fitness wristband. Its PurePulse heart rate tracking helps with better calorie burns and maximized workouts, and you can now take a snapshot of your cardio fitness level. The Charge 2 is also equipped with SmartTrack advanced exercise recognition, guiding deep-breathing sessions with heart rate visualizations and cues for a better breathing pace.

For those who prefer their beats accompanying every movement, the Braven 405 (PHP 4,890.00) will make the music move you. Perfect for the perpetually active, the Braven 405 has an integrated kickstand for free standing on the field or the gym. Ready for whatever action, the Braven 405 plays for 24 hours, is waterproof, and has a certified IP67 dust-proof rating. Can anyone say SUMMER POOL PARTY?!

Another huge kick for the audiophiles is the BLUEANT Pump Soul (PHP 5,790.00). Stylishly engineered to provide rhythm and deep bass you can feel, the Pump soul delivers an amazing 24 hours of playback on single charge. Its lightweight plastic and aluminium construction provides a durable framework and a secure, comfortable fit for either leisure or intense gym workouts. This one was everyone’s favorite pick! It’s wireless, sweat-proof, and will stay in place even while running, jumping, and working out!


For those who want to capture their adventures without the hassle, Black Eye Pro Kit (PHP 6,790.00) makes filming and photography with smartphones easier for everyone. Founded by three friends with a passion for board sports and photography, Black Eye ensures top-notch quality for their smartphone accessories. I’m currently playing around with the Black Eye Fisheye version and it’s really fun to play with!


For the upwardly mobile

These days, you can never tell what kind of mishap anyone can have on the road. And for the perpetually restless, it’s important to stay on top of security and safety. State-of-the-art dashboard cameras such as RoadEyes recsmart (PHP 9,990.00), provides peace of mind for drivers by offering high-quality footage of one’s driving journeys. This one has an app you can install on your phone so you can instantly share your dashcam footage on social media.


When a charging station is hard to find, never run out of battery again with the Scoshe MagicMount Powerbank (PHP 2,990.00). Slim, stylish, lightweight and powerful, the MagicMount™ PowerBank provides 4000mAh of power in a remarkably portable, compact design that secures seamlessly to your device. Safely and conveniently use your device as it charges! This can be “stuck” onto your phone (like a very secure magnet) so you don’t have to hold your powerbank and your phone separately. It can be easily removed once you’re done charging.

For the stylish

The truly fashionable let style transcend clothes and lets it translate to their gadgets. Beyond sleek designs are state-of-the-art electronics with powerful specs that suit a stylish techie’s lifestyle.

With Bluetooth SMART and a strong scratch-resistant UV coating, hands-on learning is redefined. Navigate a maze. Program a painting. Mimic the solar system. Swim across the water.
