Top 100 Gadget Innovations in July

From Wearable Wellness Patches to Portable Mask Sanitizers

— August 18, 2020 — Tech
The top July 2020 gadget trends are a sign of the times, reflecting increased consumer interest in everything from air purification and on-the-go sterilization to touchless designs that support contactless experiences. As parts of the world ease out of lockdown, the tech industry is offering innovations for increased safety and peace of mind.

While some brands are releasing smartwatch apps to help people wash their hands for the recommended amount of time, others are creating self-sterilizing face masks or gadgets that can be used to clean reusable masks on the go. As the use of cash and coins continue to decline, there are also plenty of gadgets emerging to support totally contactless payment experiences at retail.
