This week I had the pleasure of checking out the awesome new Downtown Dadeland VERIZON store. It is called a smart store that makes shopping for tech Christmas gifts a blast. You can get your hands on all kinds of devices and play with everything in Interactive lifestyle zones.
Get fit is a lifestyle zone filled with tons of trackers like fit bit and other cool accessories that allow you to track your fitness in style. I have the Fitbit and love it so much. My father in law was just asking which fit bit to get my mother in law. Now that I have touched each one at the VERIZON Smart Store in Downtown Dadeland, I feel confident that she’ll love the Fitbit Charge. They even have the Fitbit scale that helps you track your weight with the phone app. So cool!!
The Amplify It lifestyle zone is all about listening to your devices. You can sync your phone or tablet to tons of cute speakers. There are even some that are waterproof. As a mom, I love anything waterproof. My toddler likes to get into everything, and I like knowing that my devices can take a beating or submergence.
Home and On the Go
The Home and On the Go lifestyle zone has tons of cool stuff to play with for the house. You can test out the Canary Home Security System that is a camera that doesn’t look like a camera. I think it looks like something related to the coffee pot…something to hold coffee pods maybe. I like that it doesn’t look like a camera because intruders or babysitters won’t pay attention to it. It works as a motion detector and will give you alerts on your phone if it detects motion. I am considering this gift for my mom. The cool part is that the VERIZON will teach my mom how to use it. In fact, while I’m at it, I am going to send her to Verizon Wireless Workshop. They hold these classes several per week at the Demonstration Bar. They also have Android classes – I might need to take that one!
Here is the Demonstration Bar – They have tons of places to plug in so that you can learn how to use your devices for free! Gotta love that!
The Customize It lifestyle zone allows you to customize your phones like the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 with different leatherbacks and the accent on the back. You can customize it at the Verizon Downtown Dadeland store and other Verizon Smart Stores and have the exact phone mailed your house. They also have Star Wars customizations related to the new movie. The characters are Poe Dameron, Rey, BB-8, a First Order Stormtrooper and Kylo Ren. You can also get Star Wars: The Force Awakens wallpaper through the Google Play store. Did I mention that this phone also has an unbreakable screen? Talk about a dream come true!
The Have Fun lifestyle zone has tons of smart toys, games, and wireless gaming accessories. They have kids tablets that your kids can play with while they are in store. Love it!! Also, the GizmoPal2 is a watch for kids that allows your kids to call you and for you to track them with your phone. It’s only $5 per month, and you can cancel at any time if you don’t like it. My daughter is not ready for this yet, but her cousins are. Three kids checked off my list!
Anywhere Business lifestyle zone is all about being able to do business anywhere. Do you sell products? I have a ton of friends that do. Verizon has an awesome Point of Sale device that allows you to print receipts, take credit cards, and keep track of it all. LOVE IT! Do you have a family member that owns their own business that wants to take it to the next level? This is a great gift!
Have you guys seen the Verizon commercials about Better Matters? They show how the Verizon focuses on what matters – the network. If your phone does not work when you need it to, it does not matter what deal you got on it. All that really matters is that your devices work well with the network. I totally get it! I don’t have time for dropped calls or slow internet!
