Tailgate Tech for Your Sports Parties

By  |  0 Comments

Whether you’re a diehard NFL fan or a Big Ten homecoming geek for fall football rivalries, here are some tech ideas to make your next tailgate party the talk of the town.

With the Moto Z2 Force smartphone and Moto 360 Camera Moto Mod, you can share and livestream all the happenings at your tailgate so your friends who can’t be there can still experience all the fun. Mods come in all styles as accessories for your Moto phone – to extend battery life, zoom in for great touchdown photos, project images on your tailgate tent walls and more.

What’s a tailgate without special tunes for a fan blast? The UE WONDERBOOM and the UE BOOM 2 are portable, loud and waterproof – just in case of a beer and brats spill. Get up to 10 hours of playback on a single charge. And you can control you music from up to 100 feet away without touching your phone or tablet.

Do you have FOMO on breaking sports alerts, but don’t want to have to constantly check your phone for the latest scores? With the Samsung Gear S3 classic, a smart watch that is 4G LTE enabled, you can easily get your notifications right on your wrist.  Get texts, receive alerts and download apps when you leave your phone behind. Answer calls hands-free with the built-in speaker and microphone.

As for power, you’re covered with the mophie powerstation plus 8X – getting eight times the extra battery charge so you don’t run out of power before any kickoff and while the marching band is still on the field. An extra USB port lets you connect a second cable for dual charging. And don’t forget a jetpack portable Wi-Fi hotspot so you can access Verizon’s super-fast 4G LTE network.

And here’s a helpful device for tracking your belongings: Tile Mate Bluetooth Tracker is your partner in the football stadium battle against lost items. Place it inside a wallet or bag you take with you to start your tailgate often so you can use your phone to find a missing item that gets lost in the shuffle. Or, use the Tile to make your phone ring, even on silent – yes, on silent!
