If there’s one thing that keeps getting better with each year—it’s technology. Remember how easily we transitioned from the Macbook Pro (that we thought was the gift of God) to the MacBook Air and eventually onto the Macbook—thus proving that gluttony was good? Technology’s the shiz. So here’s a roundup of the tech releases that made our lives easier in 2016.

This 12-inch wonder in rose gold that had people swooning definitely takes the cake not just for the sleekest design but also for being the most conveniently sized notebook to carry around.

We were sold to—the colourways

 

Fitbit

The easiest way to watch your calories and to motivate yourself to take the longer route home because you've got to meet your goal of 10,000 steps (or more).

What won us over—the silent vibration alarm

 

Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality

While this may be limited to Samsung users, the Gear VR is worth making the switch for. Imagine watching your favourite sci-fi movies in virtual reality!

Why we'd give it a try—for the price

 

Amazon Echo

Good music and even better speakers put the ‘party’ in house party—but Amazon Echo is the party. Its ability to control lights, recognize voice and hell, even order pizza are only some of the features in this powerhouse of a device.

What won us over—one word. Alexa

 

Philips Hue

Philips Hue

This is the future. Smartphones, smart assistants and now smart bulbs that can change colours, stream audio (via Bluetooth), sense motion and won’t fuse out on you (for at least five years). How are you not sold already?

What we liked best—the colour temperature settings
