The Verizon Holiday Gift Guide
The Holiday season is here and tech gifts are at the top of everyone’s wish list. But that doesn’t mean a trip to a crowded mall or the nearest electronics superstore. Verizon Wireless has developed a Holiday Gift Guide that allows you to shop for great tech gifts from the comfort of your own home. Featuring tablets, toys, headphones and more, the Gift Guide has something for everyone – at prices that won’t break the bank. Here are some of our favorites:
Helo TC™ Touch-Controlled Helicopter
This amazing remote-controlled helicopter is operated from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android device using the multi-touch display. Just download the free app, plug in the Flight Deck transmitter, and you’re ready to fly. The joystick-style controls allow you to move the helicopter forward, backward, side to side, and even bring it in for smooth landings. Safe for use indoors.
Crayola® ColorStudio™ HD
The Crayola iMarker combines with the ColorStudio HD app to turn your iPad into the best coloring book ever. The intelligent digital stylus works like a pen, crayon and paintbrush all rolled into one. The animated coloring book provides an unlimited number of backdrops, as well as a variety of musical accompaniments and other sound effects. Parents can print out their kids’ artwork or share it via e-mail and Facebook.

FitBit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker
The FitBit Zip Activity Tracker monitors your steps, distance covered and calories burned as you go about your daily tasks, automatically syncing the information to your FitBit account. Data can be accessed online or viewed via a free iPhone or Android app, so you can set goals and stay motivated. You can even share and compare data with family and friends. Sweatproof and rainproof, the FitBit Zip is small enough and light enough to be worn anywhere.
Looxcie LX2 Wearable Video Cam
The Looxcie Wearable Video Cam fits on your helmet, hat or behind your ear, allowing you to record exactly what you see. Great for bike rides or birthdays, the Looxcie’s powerful camera streams live over 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi networks using the LooxcieLive app for iPhone or Android. Or you can “go back in time” and save key moments to share later.
Sony Smart Watch
The Sony Smart Watch is like wearing a smartphone on your wrist. Syncing to your Android device via Bluetooth, the Smart Watch allows you to control key smartphone functions with just a tap, touch or swipe. Vibrations and screen alerts notify you of incoming calls and appointments, and the Smart Watch lets you read texts, play music, check Facebook updates and more. Wristbands are available in pink, green, white or blue.
