We all yearn to be more organized and productive, but it’s easier said than done. With the help of a few gadgets though, it may be simpler than you think. There are new uses for common electronics, along with completely new products. Here are some of the ways you can get your productivity goals on track with the help of technology.
While it may be barely thought of as a gadget now, your cellphone is an important part of your productivity plan. Don’t underestimate what it can do — from apps to built-in features, your cell phone is probably the most important device you own. Consider a phone like the Samsung Galaxy Note5, so you can take advantage of the alarms and calendars. Set limits for getting tasks done, and set reminders for yourself. Then you can get into the apps. Phone applications vary from calendar apps to financial organization to to-do lists and more. Whatever you need help with to save time, there’s an app for you. Rather than being a distraction, having a powerful smartphone can be your best friend in completing your goals.
There are quite a few ways to digitize your payment system, including Apple Pay or Samsung Pay. But why not replace your entire wallet with the slim and easy-to-use Wocket Smart Wallet? Using an included card scanner, you can consolidate all your credit and debit cards into just one. It can even store your passport and driver’s license information. While this all can be included in one card, they still recommend carrying around a form of identification, as it does not include a picture. The case has a touchscreen, so you can choose the card you want to use when making purchases. Everything is fully encripted and safe, and it may be the way of payment in the future.
Do you have a team you are working on an important project with? Whether it’s for school or for work, it’s important to have an organized team in order to achieve your goals efficiently.

Are you always losing track of your belongings? You won’t have to worry about that any longer with Trackr. These small gadgets are about the size of a coin and can attach to anything you believe is valuable. Using an app for Android or iPhone, Trackr provides a GPS locator for anything you attach it to. Add it as a keychain, on a pet’s collar, to your phone or to anything else you misplace. There are tools enabling you to call the device and settings that let you know when any of the items are further than a set radius from you. It is an extremely helpful tool that can cut down on forgetting things and spending time trying to find lost items.
If you still like to take notes down by hand, then Livescribe is the product for you. This smart pen takes what you write and wirelessly uploads it to anywhere you have downloaded the application. From here, you can organize your notes, color code them and add additional notes. It is a simple way to save your paper notes without having to transfer everything manually. The Echo model of the Livescribe pen even includes a voice recorder, allowing you to take auditory notes or record presentations.
