Best Devices for Increasing Productivity

Devices-Executive Chronicles

Hard-working and highly productive professionals understand the importance of having the right tools to make their work simpler, faster and more efficient. With this in mind, here are some of the best productivity boosters we’ve evaluated in 2019.

For back support

If your work is based on sitting all day long and being creative in front of a screen, you’ll need a chair that provides unmatched back support. The Celle chair fits a broad range of people. Its designer Jerome Caruso envisioned a highly engineered, intelligent surface that could provide support and comfort for everyone. The end result? Celle’s patented Cellular Suspension, a robust system of polymer loops and cells, designed to support and respond to various areas of the body. 

No two of the 750 polymer cells in the chair’s exclusive Cellular Suspension back are alike. The interconnected loops and cells are designed to form a “flexible map” that conforms to your unique back shape and stature, supporting your back while enabling airflow to keep you cool.

For noise cancelation

Remote workers often suffer from noise distractions. Whether it is people talking in coffee shops, a romantic partner asking for a small favor (ten times in a row) or just kids being what they are (noisy), distraction permeates our society so much that being indistractable will be a key skill in the future.

Thankfully, the Shure SE846 earphones can help limit noise distractions. The Shure SE846 is a noise dampening in-ear monitor equipped with 4 high-definition balanced armature drivers. Its compact earpieces are designed to fit discreetly and snugly into most ears. Finally, its detachable Bluetooth 4.1 cable enables wireless, untethered usage.

For communication

Vmaker screen recorder RECORDCAST allows users to communicate and collaborate with teammates and others over screen recording videos. Users can record videos
and then share them with teammates over a shared collaborative workspace for quick communication. The app helps reduce the dependency on online meetings by helping users communicate over videos which in turn boosts productivity.

One screen equals two screens

A curved TV doesn’t make much sense since you have to always sit right in front of one to benefit from the view. However, a curved computer monitor makes perfect sense since you’re always sitting in the center of your screen. And when it comes to curved computer screens, nothing beats the Dell U3415W. 

It cancels the need for dual monitors, as it comes with a 21:9 aspect ratio and 3440 x 1440 resolution, and you can find one for as low as $750 at online retailers like Amazon. If you were to test it (like we did), you would discover that it allows placement of three windows next to each other on the same screen, which essentially enables a much faster copying-and-pasting than flipping between different virtual desktop spaces and monitors.

For hot beverages

iKettle is a Wi-Fi connected smart kettle that allows you to make coffee, tea or any other hot beverage right from your smartphone. You can start warming the water right from your desk and it will be ready to use by the time you go to the kitchen. However, you may also want to bring your hot drink outside. This is where the Brookstone Beverage warmer comes in handy, as it will keep your cup warm throughout the day.

For fast Internet

If you’re fortunate enough to live in an area that has access to a gigabit fiber connection – like Google Fiber – then one of your largest issues may be that your router isn’t quick enough to take advantage of all that fast access. For entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses that wish to use that bandwidth as a fuel for their growth, a $250-$350 upgrade to a next-gen router like the Linksys WRT1900ACS will make an enormous difference in Wi-Fi and Internet performance. Another choice is the ASUS RT-AC3200 devices.
