After all, we are always looking to improve our lifestyle. Here are top picks on the gadgets that are suitable for every generation. P/s: They also make great gifts.

Children and students
Creativity is said to foster mental growth. Allow children to express their imagination with the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9. Capture instant pictures wherever they are - shoot the twin towers from a low angle for a powerful composition and even take the perfect selfie with the built-in selfie mirror.

On the other hand, the Acer Nitro 5 is a gaming laptop that delivers blazing speed coupled with a crystal clear full high definition display for the serious gamers, who, well, need a break from studying.

Working adults
Speakers, action cameras, mobile phones and wireless headphones are suitable for working adults. The Yamaha YAS108 120W Soundbar is an audio system of choice with its built-in dual subwoofers delivering impressive bass and the Bluetooth Multipoint enabling you to connect two Bluetooth devices at the same time. Audio junkies can also consider the Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC Wireless Headphones that has noise cancellation and simply enjoy music in rich detail and powerful bass thanks to quality Sennheiser drivers.

The popular GoPro Hero 8 is now available at its lowest price ever since its launch, with the camera’s ability to capture 4K video and the HyperSmooth 2.0 Video Stabilization feature ensuring extreme sports enthusiasts get their best moments captured in pure clarity.

Those who are keen on looking for a new mobile phone will not be disappointed with the OnePlus 7T. Delivering an overall solid performance in all vital categories for a mobile phone, the OnePlus 7T combines speedy performance with a sleek design and a powerful camera, together with a fingerprint reader and other useful features such as fast charging and dual sim compatibility. The Xiaomi Black Shark meanwhile is the world’s first liquid-cooled gaming phone providing ultra cooling with an independent imaging chip for best graphics and even comes with a detachable precision gamepad included in the box.

Parents
