When you work from home, the right devices can make a big difference in your productivity. Not only do these help make work more enjoyable (no waiting 10 minutes for a computer to load), but they also allow you to work in ways you might otherwise and shave minutes off of your routine tasks. Here are some powerful devices for working from home that you may not have considered.
This Amazon device is essentially a housing unit for the company’s digital assistant, Alexa. The good thing about this one is that it also has a camera.
The Echo Show can be an amazing tool for collaboration, thanks to the ability to “visit” family members to get a live feed from their camera.
At the same time, an Echo Show will allow you to ask questions like math problems and get a quick answer without having to look up from the keyboard. Keep one in the office and you can also use it to set reminders.
Surprisingly, one of the best productivity devices is the Apple Watch. While this device may not appear to do much that your phone can’t, the convenience of having it on your wrist and the highly personal nature of the technology make it quite a game-changer in this regard.
For one thing, an Apple Watch allows you to put “complications” (widgets) right on your wrist. One of the best ways to use this is to display your Todoist to-dos here. By keeping these on your wrist, there is no way you can lose them!
Getting notifications on your wrist also means you know when something is important without having to stop what you’re doing. And being able to talk to Siri on your wrist offers many of the same benefits as an Echo.
That’s before we talk about the indirect ways health tracking can improve your productivity and performance.
GPD P2 Max.
The GPD P2 Max is a surprisingly powerful laptop that’s almost small enough to fit in a pocket. The reason this is notable is that it gives you an option for writing work that you can take with you on a train, or that you can write in bed without feeling like you’re glued to a huge laptop. This is perfect for when you just need to get some work done quickly, which in turn can make you productive in times you didn’t know you could be!
