These July 2016 gadgets range from health-tracking headphones to P2P payment apps that are conveniently accessed via one's mobile device. When examining the month's educational picks, standouts include 'Shirt Circuit,' a wearable circuit board t-shirt that can be customized while teaching kids electrical engineering fundamentals.

Other favorites range from revamped gaming consoles with a retro arcade feel along with Bluetooth-connected robot toys that are a contemporary nod to 90s nostalgia. For example, a newly released 'Furby Connect' doll reintroduces modern generations to the retro toy while keeping connectivity in mind as a way to fulfill the needs of digital natives.

Protective pregnancy wearables, connected hearing aids and prenatal monitoring devices round off this list and are representative of Millennials' desire for accessible and convenient medicinal tools.
