8 Cool Gadgets for Guys
If it’s something that we hate, it’s messy cables. Thinking of cutting the cord? The Amazon Fire TV Stick lets you stream and watch live TV and streaming content on your HDTV without any bulky equipment.
The voice remote is Alexa-ready and lets you find all your favorite content just by speaking into your remote. Now that’s some cool man stuff going on right there.
The Roku 3600R Streaming Stick features a quad-core processor and dual-band wireless technology. It’s a nifty pocket-sized device that fits almost anywhere. With the Roku, you can access Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu, Google Play and more.
The Roku works by plugging it into any HDTV. It’s literally plug and play and will work even when you’re away from home. All you need is a wireless browser-based login. Be creative. Take it with you on your next trip!
The Ring Wi-Fi Video Doorbell is not just any ordinary doorbell. It’s a battery operated HD video doorbell that lets you answer your door from anywhere using your smartphone. That’s right; you could be answering your home doorbell while at work or on vacation!
The Ring Video Doorbell streams live audio and video of your home’s doorstep to your Android or iOS device. Its built-in motion sensor can detect movement up to 30 feet. The Ring Video Doorbell is easy to install and can be set up in minutes.
Worried that a package is going to arrive while you’re out? The Ring’s got you covered. Wonder who’s visiting your home while you’re away? The Ring stores all recorded footage to the cloud which can be accessed easily via a free app. Of all the electronic gadgets for men, I have to say this gadget is something practical not just for men, but for the whole family as well.
You can’t call yourself a true geek if you don’t have a smart home. Now that you’ve gotten yourself the Ring Video Doorbell, what next? How about the Nest Learning Thermostat that programs itself and helps you save energy while you’re away?
Like the Ring Doorbell, the Nest Thermostat can be controlled via your phone or laptop. It helps you save energy and money in the long run by learning about your preferred temperature and building a schedule around it. Its ‘Farsight’ technology sees you approaching and allows the Nest to show you the current time or temperature.

Ever find yourself out of battery juice while you’re outside? Don’t you just hate it when you have to try and find an outlet to plug up and charge your devices?
A true gadget geek is always mobile. How does he do it? With a mobile power bank of course. But don’t make the mistake of buying any ordinary power bank! What you need is the Anker PowerCore. It’s so powerful that it’s able to charge an iPhone 6 seven times. That’s right - seven charges in total.
The Anker PowerCore is an ultra-high capacity power bank that also lets you charge more than one device at a time. Its 4.8 amps output allows you to charge two devices simultaneously at full speed.
What’s a perfect gadget for someone who enjoys games and movies? The Samsung Gear Virtual Reality Headset.
So what can you do with the Samsung Gear VR? You can watch movies, play games, socialize with friends and more. Gadgets for guys don’t come geekier than this.
The Samsung Gear VR is lightweight, easy to use and pairs easily with the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Note 5, S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+. It has a wide field of view, precise head-tracking, and low latency and is guaranteed to transport you to a whole new world of virtual reality.
The DJI Phantom 3 is our favorite in this list of gadgets for men. Why is that? The DJI Phantom 3 is not just any typical drone; it’s a professional grade quadcopter designed for serious hobbyists.
With the DJI Phantom 3, you can view live streaming footage from up to half a mile away. And we’re talking about high-quality video here – video is streamed via its 2.7K HD camera.
The DJI Phantom 3 has GPS assisted flight features so you can concentrate on recording great video while flying safely. It’s easy to fly and will even return to you via its automatic flight assistant, should you lose control or sight of it.
The Pebble Time Steel is an elegantly designed smartwatch that lasts up to 10 days between charges. That’s quite impressive, I must say. Its always-on display will never leave you second guessing about the time or notifications received.
The Pebble Time Steel is only 10.5 mm thin and has a marine grade stainless steel chassis and bezel. Its tactile, textured buttons make it easy for eyes-free control of the watch at all times.
When we think of men's gadgets, we usually imagine something dorky like night-vision goggles. The cool thing about this list is that both guys and girls can use almost every single item. They’re not cool gadgets for men only. Take the Nest Thermostat for example. How cool is it to have a device that automatically controls and regulates your home temperature? And the DJI Phantom 3 is sure to be an instant hit with children. Just don’t scare your pets with it!
