Having the right tools is crucial to do your best work in any job, especially if you are a digital nomad. Whether you are switching into the remote work lifestyle or simply looking to refresh your current tech repertoire, here are seven gadgets for digital nomads that will make working more efficient and enjoyable.

1. GoPro

A GoPro is an essential addition to any digital nomad’s gear kit. This compact video recorder will help you get the best shots and videos on your adventures, whether on land, underwater or in the air on a drone. With the right mounts, you will be able to take snap high-quality pictures from any vantage point.

2. Blue-Light Protection Glasses

As a digital nomad, you may spend most of your days on the computer for work. Invest in your eye health by buying some blue-light protective glasses. The light that shines from digital screens can strain your eyes and result in some serious damage. To be able to work for months and years to come, check out some glasses that are both fashionable and good for your health.

3. Power Bank

Have you ever been cranking out work while on a long bus ride when the dreaded “low battery” warning appears on your laptop? Keep your workflow uninterrupted by purchasing a quality and reliable power bank. Check out this article for the best options available this year.

4. A Great Laptop

This is the most important item you will have you on your travels, so make sure you get one that is durable and can accomplish all the tasks you need for your job. MacBooks are a favourite among digital nomads for their light, compact form and top-quality operating systems and processors. This allows you to use any creative programs like adobe without glitching or slowing your computer down.

5. Power Adaptor

Be able to plug your gadgets in anywhere by investing in a universal power adaptor/ You can get a power adaptor specific to one country of destination, but if you plan on travelling the world it is best to go with the universal option. Those with USB ports are also a plus. For the best adaptor choices, check out this article.

6. E-Reader

For long train rides or rainy days in, books are a great way to stay entertained. Have a wide selection available to you at all times without sacrificing suitcase space by bringing them along in the form of an e-reader. The Kindle is our recommendation for a reader with many reading options but without that straining glare from the screen. Getting the app on your phone and computer also lets you pick up where you left off across devices.

7. Noise-Cancelling Headphones

We are big fans of the Bose QuietComfort headphones. If you are on a packed flight or train, in a loud café, or simply living in a noisy neighbourhood, these headphones provide superior sound-cancelling technology without sacrificing comfort; a lifesaver when working in non-office settings.
