Back to College Tech

There’s a better way to make your new college student more connected through technology. From mobile payments to help with your homework, your student can rest better, study more and be better prepared for the fall weather with tech. And it won’t take up too much room in the dorm!

Looking for help with homework? Just say “OK Google” to Google Home. This voice-enabled assistant will quickly find the answer to whatever you or your child wants to know. It’ll also help them keep track of the weather, how long it will take to get to class and set timers to know when it’s time to take a break from studying.

Samsung Galaxy Book is Samsung’s first 2-in-1 tablet with more ways to be creative as it functions both as a laptop and tablet. Powered by Windows 10 and an Intel Corei5 processor, this tablet features Samsung Flow which seamlessly connects to a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. It also comes with an S pen and keyboard that connect your student instantly. Adaptive fast charging also keeps your student connected.

Samsung Pay on the Samsung Galaxy S8 offers students an easy way to take their mobile wallet on the go – in the food court, bookstore or any other shop where the needs and necessities of an independent student life require daily purchases. Plus, you can get extra rewards for that daily mocha latte ordered as the early AM class eye opener. Samsung Pay currently supports more than 1,000 banks and local credit unions with more added daily.

Sometimes it’s easier to study when there’s a little bit of noise. Help your student achieve concentration nirvana with the Bose SoundLink Revolve speaker. This Bluetooth device boasts Bose quality sound and 360 degree sound – that means no matter where they’re seated, the audio always sounds the same. It’s splash proof and drop proof – perfect for anyone leading an active life.

Looking smart is half the part, right? With the Samsung Gear S3, your student can stay on top of assignment reminders, track their heart rate and even pay for a quick bite to eat all with one tap on the wrist. And because it packs 4G LTE inside, your phone doesn’t have to be anywhere near you! Now that’s smart!

And Samsung Health on the Samsung Galaxy S8 provides core features to record and analyze daily activities and habits for a healthy lifestyle. Provide your daily snacks, food, water and caffeine intake and track your diet and weight on the go – as well as monitoring your sleep patterns and stress level. Review heart rate, blood pressure, blood glucose levels, stress and weight using built-in sensors and third party devices. Trackers enable user to easily and quickly check meaningful data based on user preferences.

And best of all for busy students (and parents), Verizon now offers Total Mobile Protection for those smartphone accidents during moves back and forth to college. The plan offers same day screen replacement service. Save time and money with a new screen instead of a replacement device. Verizon’s cracked screen repair service is now available in carry-in locations nationwide. Or, a technician can meet you for replacement service – where you and your cracked phone happen to be.
