Technology is becoming smaller, thinner and more stylish with each passing successor. As a result, many manufacturers are forsaking comfortable ergonomics for a more visually appealing form factor.
But what if it didn’t have to be this way? After all, you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on something just for it to be uncomfortable to use after a couple minutes. That being said, here is a list of the four most ergonomic and stylish technology for 2015:
Samsung Galaxy S6
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is a prime example of a smartphone with both style and comfort. Its ergonomic strengths can be summed up with these three features:
- Size: The body on this phone measures 5.65 inches high and 2.78 inches across, which tends to fit in just about any hand. It’s large enough that you can type comfortably on the on-screen keyboard with one thumb, but small and thin enough to be able to fit in your pocket.
- Screen: It comes with a 5.1-inch AMOLED screen with a 577 pixel density, which gives you a clear, bright display from edge to edge. This allows you to see the screen in any lighting and helps prevent blurry images.
- Material: It utilizes Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on the front and back, which gives it a smooth and comfortable finish. And, for your peace of mind, it is less likely to shatter when you inevitably drop it.
Samsung Gear S
The best accessory to get with your new Galaxy smartphone is the Samsung Gear S smartwatch. Since the release of the Apple Watch, companies are taking smartwatches more seriously (even though they have been around for years).
The Samsung Gear’s ergonomics lie in its form factor. It sports a curved 2-inch super AMOLED display that contours to your wrist seamlessly. It also features a soft plastic band that comfortably wraps around your wrist.
Although most people don’t think of desks when they think of technology, the Humanscale Float desk revolutionizes the concept of the sit-stand desk. Its major aim is to reduce back strain and promote a healthier and more comfortable work environment.
Standard sit-stand desks use old technology, such as cranks or noisy motors, to adjust the height of the desk. Alternatively, the Float desk uses a type of counterbalance technology that allows it to simply float to its desired position, making the transition between sitting and standing simple and painless.
Logitech MX Master
A lot of people don’t take computer mice seriously, but Logitech has unleashed a new ergonomic mouse, called the MX Master. Its original design was hand crafted to fit the contour of your hand, and it has an adaptive scroll-wheel that makes scrolling through webpages or zooming in and out fluid. Additionally, you can pair up to three devices via Bluetooth, so you don’t have to worry about plugging in a connector to every device you want to use it with.
These are just a few pieces of technology coming out this year. Although some ergonomic technology may cost a little more, you shouldn’t put a price on your comfort and health.
