Article Excerpt: The Five Best Tech Gifts of 2015, Rethink Modern
The Wocket Smart Wallet is one of the best new tech gadgets coming out this year and is a great tech gift for men.
It's designed to replace your entire wallet with one single card. Then it uses some pretty cool high tech security features to keep your information protected at all times.
Here's how it works: You can load the information from up to 10,000 cards (you don't have that many do you?) into one WocketCard that you carry with you inside the wallet. When it's time to pay for something, you use a display screen on the Wallet to choose which of your credit cards or bank cards you want to use and swipe the WocketCard as if it's your normal card.
It works anywhere you'd use a debit or credit card. Talk about slimming down your wallet!
This is the perfect tech gift idea for somebody that carries a lot of cards around and tends to have a bulging wallet.
Don't worry about security either, Wocket protects all of your information with biometric voicematch security, and a PIN. It also encrypts all of your card data when storing it.
Not impressed yet? Here are some additional features:
- Works for online purchases. Press a button on the wallet to quickly display the card info you need.
- Includes a mobile & desktop app for managing your finances.
- Wallet battery lasts a full year, and can be recharged beyond that.
- Made with high quality stitched leather, making this a very impressive tech gadget to give as a gift.
