Top 100 Gadgets Trends in October

From Solar-Powered Water Filters to Digital Meditation Masks

— October 28, 2018 — Tech
Fancy gadgets are generally what people first consider when thinking of tech innovations and this month's list features unique offerings ranging from upgraded iconic smartwatches to overtime-preventing peripherals. Known as the BKID Balance, this wireless mouse is expertly engineered to prevent office workers from putting in strenuous overtime. Designed to sync with an employee's specific work schedule, this mouse automatically starts moving away from the user when the work shift is done.

Also featured on this October 2018 gadgets list is the newly announced Apple Watch Series 4. Announced at a recent Apple event, this newly upgraded smartwatch showcases a distinct focus on user health and is an official FDA-approved wearable device. The Series 4 also includes a new 64-bit S4 processor, which grants the smartwatch faster operation and the ability to handle more tasks at once.
