If you belong to the gig workers community and are looking for tech gadgets to work more efficiently, don’t worry!

We have come up with a list of useful gadgets that will help you do more and do better just like a pro.

Laptop + Accessories

If you are someone working as a freelancer (such as a proofreader or a professional coder), a virtual assistant that demands a lot of video conferencing, a professional survey taker, or a graphic designer, a laptop is an essential tool for you.

Considering that most of your work will be done on a laptop, and the plethora of options available in the market, it is important to choose the one that best fits your needs.

CPU performance, RAM, and battery life are the factors that’ll directly affect your productivity.

Therefore, keeping an external GPU as an accessory in combination with a power bank will come in handy during heavy working times.

Smart Phones

A smartphone is an important piece of technology for every individual regardless of their profession.

However, gig workers such as Uber or Lyft drivers, or food delivery drivers utilize their phones more than others.

For that reason alone, it is important for them to choose the right smartphone that has a longer battery life, a bigger screen, and enough RAM to keep the apps running smoothly in the background.

On the flip side, riders that use their bikes to deliver food may opt for a phone with a smaller display but the same top-notch specs.

Companies like Apple have identified their target market and will soon launch several iPhone models to fulfill the needs of customers with different requirements and budgets.

External Hard Drive + Backpack

Any freelancer whose work involves a lot of storage and keeping records such as photographer, videographer, or data collector, etc. will tell you the importance of the backup.

An external hard drive serves the purpose of storing backus as well as providing extra storage for those huge files that a client may require after some time.

When buying a hard drive it is important to consider factors such as space, longevity, and build quality.

Moreover, every freelancer must have a reliable backpack that not only stores your precious and useful gadgets but also includes basic tech elements such as an embedded power bank and travel router for uninterrupted work on the go.

Wearable Tech

Physically active gig workers who choose to be either a pet sitter, a mover, a tasker, cleaner, or even a massage therapist, can significantly benefit from the latest wearable tech such as fitness trackers, armbands, and a wide range of stylish, affordable, and practical smartwatches.

For example, pet sitters can keep track of their health (using fitness trackers) while walking with pets.

A smartwatch helps count your steps, calories burned, and other activity levels throughout the day.
