With Mother's Day just around the corner, there may be a few cutting-edge gadgets worth considering when shopping for that perfect gift for mom.
To make looking for that present easier, here are a few standout recommendations from Melissa Thompson, CEO of health-care technology company TalkSession.
Bellabeat: For the expectant mom, shoppers may want to consider the baby's first tracking device. It can monitor movement and count the baby's kicks. The gadget, for about $129, works with a mobile app on either an iPhone or Android platform, so that mom and dad can better calculate relevant pregnancy dates.
Mimo: For the new mom, shoppers may want to consider this cotton kimono. For a hefty $200, the kimono pairs with the Mimo Turtle so that the user can monitor their infant's respiration, skin temperature, body position and activity level. The gathered data can then be seen on the Mimo mobile app in real time. The app works for both iPhones and Android devices.
Mini: For the mom who is always on the go, the Mini by Everpurse may be a good gift to consider. For about $129, this fashionable accessory is a wallet clutch that can fully charge an iPhone. Mini's aluminum charging dock, which only fits the iPhone 5 or 5S, is nestled into the backside of its hard shell, which allows users to operate their phone while it charges. The USB plug hidden behind the clasp plugs into any USB drive to recharge the wallet in six to eight hours.
Besides these high-tech gadget gifts, folks can also consider the Owlet, which is a smart sensor baby bootie, or the emPOWERED bag, which can also charge a user's iPhone on the go.
