Formovie’s Gift Guide for the New Year
2022 has seen a variety of gadgets and appliances being introduced into the global market, with some performing better than others. As the year draws to a close, we’ve taken a delve into finding the best of these wonderful contraptions and compiled a list of the coolest gadgets and appliances of 2022 that you can gift to your loved ones for the New Year.
A timepiece is certainly one of the most timeless gifts, and while an analog wristwatch is a classic item to own, the digital age has brought us some of the most interactive wristwatches of all time. The smartwatch goes beyond just telling you the time and what day of the month it is, it lets you read messages, screen phone calls without lifting your mobile device, and even helps you keep fit by keeping track of how many steps you take during each day.
- An Apple Watch is your best bet if you own an iPhone, with the Apple Watch Ultra coming out at the top. But if you’re not prepared to start the New Year off short of an arm and a leg (approximately $800), then the Apple Series 8 is another great option for half the price.
- For Android users, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro offer great features like YouTube Music, Google Assistant, and Google Maps, however, they’re only able to track your heart rate when paired with a Galaxy device, according to a review of Cnet.com. The Google Pixel Watch has a beautiful design and is compatible with all devices running on Android 8.0 or higher.
Gifting someone a card on a special occasion will never go out of style, especially if that card can be used to buy something else. Gift cards are a unique way of telling your loved one that you really want them to have the gift that THEY truly want, without the hassle of actually buying the gift.
- For instance, an Amazon Gift Card opens the door to an array of possibilities in terms of things that you can shop for online, and it can also be used to settle the bill of your Amazon Prime Video Channel subscription.
- Amazon Prime and Hulu are two of the 5000+ streaming apps that can be enjoyed on the Formovie THEATER, so the gift card could potentially be used to enjoy an immersive viewing experience in your home theater. Alternatively, you can opt for a Netflix Gift Card, and follow our guide to streaming Netflix on the Formovie THEATER, since it’s not yet compatible with the laser TV.

- The Formovie THEATER entered the market in 2022 and stole the hearts of a panel of UST projector experts, who all agreed that it was the best triple laser projector at the 2022 Laser TV Showdown hosted by Projector Central and ProjectorScreen.com. It’s built with 2800 ANSI lumens and 4K UHD resolution, bright and brilliant enough to be enjoyed outdoors.
