7 must-have back-to-school tech products for college students

Ah, college. A time for co-ed dorms, tailgate parties and — oh right, studying. But who says campus life can’t include work and play.


This fall, the two will join forces, thanks to a slew of fun and innovative products on the market.

Forget the highlighters and spiral notebooks. The best back-to-school gear available this September will be high tech: from alarms that shake you awake, to earplugs that silence chatty roommates, to a gorgeous dual-lens smartphone that unlocks in just .4 seconds.

Get dialed in on the best supplies to make school a cinch. Here are the 7 must-have tech products to help students study hard (and have a little fun) all semester long.

A beautiful smartphone to capture every moment

Stay in touch while living away from home with the new Honor 8, a stunning smartphone with a well-crafted exterior that is matched only by its stellar interior technology. Diamond-cut smooth edges and a 2.5D glass-made body gives the phone a sleek, modern vibe, while superb battery life means there will always be enough juice in the phone — even if you have to pull an all-nighter. Dual-lenses help capture crisp photos in low light and a “perfect selfie” mode means you’ll always put your best face forward.

Earplugs that block out the world

When you have roommates who keep weird hours, a device that dulls the noise is absolutely necessary. Using Hush noise canceling earplugs is like putting a sound machine directly into your brain. The discrete plugs sync to your smartphone via Bluetooth, allowing you to program which soothing tones will lull you to sleep, like the rushing of water or the chatter of the forest. When it’s time for class, you can schedule a wakeup that only you will hear. Sounds good, right?


An alarm that shakes you awake

For those who need a literal jolt to get out of bed in the morning (and we’re not talking about caffeine) there’s the SmartShaker by iLuv. The palm-sized disc syncs to your phone, then gets tucked under your pillow while you sleep. When your alarm goes off, it shakes and vibrates beneath you, giving you that much-needed boost to get going.
