5 gadgets for mom

Xiaomi Smart Band 8

It's that time of the year again when you shower your mum with lots of love by taking her out to brunch, or just telling her that she's awesome. And since we review products, we believe we got a good grasp of which gadgets are great for your mom. They run the gamut from smartwatches to audio to even a new ebook reader. Here are our picks.

Xiaomi's budget Smart Band fitness trackers have always offered plenty for their price. The latest Xiaomi Smart Band 8 is no different, with several design tweaks to change up the appearance and usability. Coupled with its still affordable price (around S$50), it remains an easy recommendation to get your mum started on her fitness goals.

If mum's a reader, then the new Kobo Libra Colour is something she will enjoy. And even if she doesn't read comics or manga, the faster processor will make everything feel so much smoother. If she also loves taking notes, the Libra Colour supports last year's Kobo Stylus 2, too. Best of all, she can borrow books from the Singapore National Library.

Shark CleanSense IQ+ Vacuum Cleaner

The Shark CleanSense IQ+ Vacuum Cleaner is great. It's a lightweight stick vacuum, smart enough to crank up the power, and has an automatic disposal bin that charges the vacuum. It's also priced very competitively at S$899 — almost half the price of say, the Samsung Bespoke Jet AI which has similar features. If you want to make doing household chores easier, this is a can buy for sure.

JBL Authentics 500

Mom's gonna love the JBL Authentics 500 with its powerful sound with virtualised Dolby Atmos. She will also love the design of this smart speaker with its classic vintage looks. It looks absolutely stylish with its 70s foam grilles located at the front in a leather-like enclosure with copper trim. And if that's not enough, you can combine the Authentics 500 with other compatible smart speakers in a multi-room system.

Replacing your stove, oven, and fryer with a handy all-in-one device may seem crazy, but the technology is here. The Ninja Foodi 11-in-1 SmartLid Multi-Cooker (OL550) is exactly what it states, with 11 different types of cooking modes, though my most-used ones were pressure cooking, saute, and steam air fry. And while convenient, it does take up a bit of space on your kitchen top. Mum's gonna love this super helpful cooking tool, for sure.
