Top 8 Necessary Gadgets For Man in 2024

If your man loves to have fun, there are plenty of cool gadgets that can enrich his life. From ordering food intuitively to tracking his fitness, there are a few key gadgets that can help him get more out of life.

1. DJI Mini 2 Drone

Two and a half years after DJI released the original Mini 2, it still remains a compelling drone. Sure, it lacks some of the pro video and imaging features offered by its newer Mavic 3 Pro model, but it’s a lot less expensive.

The drone offers 2.7K 30p video recording, global satellite positioning (GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo) and the ability to shoot in RAW still images. It also has more forceful motors and an improved wireless system, meaning it can respond to commands even in breezy conditions.

And its controller has a sleek, gaming laptop look and feel that adds confidence to the flying experience. The only thing missing is a robust return-to-home feature, but that’s something DJI could add via software update in the future.

2. Garmin Forerunner 935

The Garmin Forerunner 935 is an all-singing, all-dancing GPS multisport watch that’s perfect for runners and triathletes who take their performance seriously. It offers advanced data analytics and near-instant GPS acquisition, but it’s also simple to use for newcomers to running.

The 935 takes its lead from the Fenix family and treats its copious internal technology with aesthetic humility – it looks like a normal watch, albeit a fairly expensive one. It can track road and mountain biking, swimming (pool and open water), hiking, indoor and outdoor running, golf, snowboarding, skiing, rowing, stand-up paddling, and other activities using Garmin’s free Connect IQ app store. It’s also compatible with optional add-ons that allow the watch to track chest heart rate monitors, a bike speed and cadence sensor, and a running dynamics pod.

3. BARTESIAN Premium Cocktail Machine

When a drink is called for, whether you’re trying to stop some bad guys, pen New York’s sex and relationships column or bowl a perfect 300, the BARTESIAN will whip you up in seconds. Like a Keurig for cocktails, this machine uses cocktail capsules that contain all of the mixers and concentrates you need.

The machine scans the barcode on each capsule when you load it, then pours your drink. It also offers a range of drink strengths and allows you to make mocktails too. The only drawback is that it requires more counter space and the bottles are large, so it’s best for open spaces. This is a splurge, but definitely worth it for those who love to entertain.

4. Apple AirPods

Apple’s AirPods wireless earbuds are simple to pair, but they have plenty of advanced features and settings. There are three different models that are sold at the moment, and while they look similar, each offers a slightly different set of features.

The entry-level AirPods (2nd Generation) have a lower price point, but they don’t offer active noise cancellation or spatial audio. On the other hand, the AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) come with a case that provides wireless charging, a MagSafe connector, and IPX4 water resistance. They also have a longer battery life and support Siri. The AirPods Pro is our pick for the best true wireless earbuds. They cost $159 on Apple’s website, but e-commerce sites like Amazon and Best Buy regularly sell them for less than that.

5. Bluetooth Speaker

A Bluetooth speaker isn’t just for music – it can also control your smart home, play audiobooks and more. Look for a model with voice assistant integration like Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.

For example, the JBL Authentics 300 is portable enough to stash in a cupholder or backpack holster and boasts both BT 5.0 and wi-fi streaming. It also has a built-in DAC, dual voice assistants and multiroom functionality via Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect and Audio Pro Multi-room.

While you’re shopping, look for a wireless speaker with an IP rating that can withstand some knocks and splashes (and maybe even a few drinks). You might also want one that supports aptX Adaptive Bluetooth 5.1 codec, which boosts sound quality.

6. Multi-Tool

There’s very few tools that can do as many jobs as a good multi-tool. While you won’t be able to replace a dedicated power tool, you can use a multi-tool for quick fixes like replacing blown light bulbs or improvised home repairs.

Most multi-tools feature most of the tools that tradespeople and problem-solving MacGyvers need regularly in a streamlined package. For example, the bestselling Leatherman Wave+ features pliers, knives, saws, openers, and drivers.

Other models offer niche tools like a fish scaler, oxygen tank wrench, and awls. There are even some that let you customize the tool’s nooks and crannies with add-on kits to suit your specific needs.

7. Prostate Massager

Prostate massagers are used to stimulate the prostate gland for sexual pleasure. Depending on the model, these toys can be vibrating or rotating. They are usually inserted into the anal canal and can be controlled remotely or by buttons on the device itself.

Although it may take some time to find the right prostate stimulator, once you do, it can lead to intense orgasms. To maximize results, apply plenty of lubrication to the prostate and anal area. Also, consider a company with discreet packaging to protect your privacy. Lastly, choose a toy that can be easily operated by beginners. It will make your experience less stressful and more enjoyable.

8. Toiletry Bag

Whether you’re on the road, at the gym or at home, this toiletry bag is perfect for stashing your lotions, potions and daily essentials. Also known as a dopp kit, travel bag, bathroom bag, ditty bag, personal hygiene bag or washbag, this capelli sport Negative Nylon toiletry kit is the easiest way to store your shampoo, toothbrush, deodorant, razor and more. Keep it clean and organized in this durable, water-resistant toiletry bag.
