Senior Jet Setters: 5 Gadgets to Make Travel Easier

Posted by on
Use these gadgets for a stress free vacation.

Smile Senior Care thinks travel should be as simple as possible.  We are always looking for new gadgets to make those trips easier.  Here are a few of our latest finds.

Trakdot Luggage Tracker

Nothing is worse than getting to your fabulous vacation destination, only to realize that your luggage did not join you.  Well, you don’t have to wonder what adventure your luggage has embarked on anymore.  Trakdot Luggage Tracker will alert you to the location of your belongings so that they can be returned to you as soon as possible.  This peace of mind does come at the price of a yearly subscription but if you travel a lot and bring valuables, it more than pays for itself.

Joby’s GorillaPod Tripod

The Gorillapod makes it easy to get that perfect camera shot, no matter where you are.  With flexible legs, you can wrap and secure it on almost anything to capture that once in a lifetime vacation shot.  You can use it for still pictures or even a video on your camera.  Gorillapod will hold your device safely and securely.

Polar Heart Monitor

If you are on a fairly active vacation and need to keep track of your heart rate, this Polar Heart Rate Tracker is for you.  It’s worn like a wristwatch and keeps track of your pulse.  You can use this when you aren’t on vacation and just working out.

Dry Pak Waterproof Holder

Going to the beach or some other destination that requires protecting your valuables from water?  The Dry Pak holder will shield your items from the weather and keep them safe.  You can choose different sizes, depending on how much stuff you need to keep protected.  This is a must have for tropical trips!

Kindle Paperwhite

Want to do some reading while you are traveling to you destination?  The Kindle Paperwhite is an excellent choice.  Here are some of it’s features:

  • Glare-free screen – unlike the glossy surface of a tablet, the Paperwhite display has a non-reflective surface that makes it easy to read, even in bright sunlight
  • Read without eyestrain – our patented front-lit design guides light towards the display instead of projecting it out at your eyes like back-lit tablets. Read comfortably for hours.
  • Thin and light. Hold comfortably in one hand for extended periods
  • Read for weeks without charging – Kindle Paperwhite can be read for up to 8 weeks on a single charge, with Wi-Fi off.


Hopefully, some of these innovative gadgets can make your next trip easier.  Bon voyage!
