Top 100 Gadgets Trends in April

From Foldable Rolling Tablet Designs to Sleep Breathing Monitors

— May 1, 2021 — Keynote Trends
Many consumers have been leaning hard on their favorite technology products to get them through the past year, which continues to be one of the main themes within this collection of April 2021 gadgets trends. The workstation is continuing to experience a tech-focused overhaul as users seek out ways to streamline their workflow, while mobile audio pushes more consumers to ditch cords in favor of wireless alternatives.

We're also seeing several sleep-focused gadgets that work to optimize nighttime rest like the Joovv light, the Snore Circle 'Sleepbreathe' and the SOLTEC-SMS System. These target the health and wellness of the many consumers finding it difficult to get a good night's sleep in the face of the ongoing pandemic.

A final theme within the April 2021 gadgets trends is the optimization of life at home, which is seen in the form of the KitchenAid Cordless 7 Speed Hand Mixer for easier recipe preparation, the SensorsCall CareAlert to keep seniors safe and beyond.
