Tech for Millennial Moms

Stephanie Carls on KAMR NBC 4 Amarillo Studio 4: Tech for the Millennial Mom

Even though these tech items are done in a segment about moms, they can work for any woman! From a smartring to a purse that charges your phone, we made sure to cover some top products you might not be able to live without. Let's go down the line of what was featured:

Ringly: Go ahead and leave your phone in your purse without any worries of missing those important notifications. If they are important, just let Ringly notify you! This beautiful smartring syncs with your phone and let's you enjoy the moment instead of constantly checking your phone. See my full review here.

Wifi Baby 4: Wifi Baby 4 is a wireless-network based camera that allows parents to stay connected anywhere with password-protected video, audio and notifications via apps on iOS or Android devices. Parents will have a peace of mind with the new 2015 version with HD video, a 35% wider field of view, improved night vision and the option to stream to Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, and Fire TV. Designed with the modern parent in mind, the app still allows multitasking like email, text, and use of others apps while being alerted with background audio or notifications when baby is crying. 

Chic Buds Crossbody Power: Staying powered throughout the day doesn't have to be big, bulky, and without some great style! The Chic Buds Crossbody Power is the secret weapon every modern Wonder Woman needs to charge through the day on full power. Featuring built-in USB cords for easy charging of your phone, you will look chic with this purse across your shoulder.

Motorola Moto 360 2nd Generation Smartwatch: This smartwatch has to be the most beautiful smartwatch on the market! I love the round face and all of the ways this watch keeps me going throughout the day! You can get all of your messages, notifications, and weather at a glance and with all of the customization features, you'll find something that is perfect for your style. Plus, this works with both Android and iOS phones! Find my full review here.  

Top 5 Tech Tools for Millennial Moms


Everywhere we look there are more tools than ever for Millennial moms to collect, express and organize their lives in a high-designed, yet functional way. For me, my mobile phone seems to be an extension of myself, a constant utility in my hand or by my side for just about every waking moment — the first thing I look at when I wake up, and the last thing I see before bedtime. Our phones are our No. 1 tool for capturing life moments, both big and small, and it’s an ever-present resource for our lives. 

A new tool or app seems to come out daily, but these five products and apps have been my go-to items for quite some time: 

Wunderlist app 

Being on the same page has never been easier. Wunderlist is an app that keeps me organized through projects all the way to the grocery list. The best part of the app is the ability to collaborate. Share the grocery list with your significant other and then no matter who ends up going to the store, you don’t have to worry about forgetting anything as you are sharing the same list.

Mophie Juice Pack

Taking photos, posting on social media, emails, and calls can run down your phone battery quickly. Having a Mophie Juice Pack will deliver 120 percent more charge to your phone so no photo-op is missed due to a dead phone. 

Postagram App 

We are always taking photos and sharing them on social media, but what about your friends and family that aren’t on social. Plus, who doesn’t love to receive mail, especially when it involves adorable photos of grandchildren? Postagram allows you to take photos from your phone’s gallery, Facebook, or even Instagram to send as a postcard to your friends and family. Each postcard is 99 cents to send. Easy and very simple. Mailboxes will be smiling everywhere. Check out my review! (iPhone and Android)

GoPro HERO4 Session Camera

The newest camera from GoPro makes it easy to capture those unforgettable moments. The camera is waterproof right outside of the box, which means taking it to the pool or on the lake for the weekend is easy. It’s the smallest and lightest camera available from GoPro, so it’s not going to take up much room in your bag. With the camera’s built in wifi, you can see your photos and videos in the GoPro app and share right to your social channels. (I even tossed it in the bathtub with our 18-month-old!)

Sit or Squat Restroom Finder App 

Kids are always wanting to touch EVERYTHING and the worst time for this is in a dirty restroom. Sometimes, beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to “I’ve gotta GO!” time, but with the Sit or Squat Restroom Finder App from Charmin, you can feel a little bit more comfortable about where you land. Named a “Best App for Parents” by Parenting Magazine, this is one app you can’t pass up. (iPhone and Android)
