2011 LIST OF TOP HOME & OFFICE GADGETS

Garmin Home Wireless Tracker Topped the List

The Garmin GTU Lets You Track Prized Possessions
The waterproof GPS transmitter, which is roughly the size of a cigarette lighter and weighs 1.7 ounces, comes with a case, a carabiner ring, and an adhesive strip for attaching it to objects—a briefcase, say, or a dog collar. After registering the Garmin GTU 10 on My.Garmin.com, you can create up to 10 "virtual fences" of any size, within the continental U.S. If the device enters or leaves one of those areas, Garmin will alert you by e-mail or text. You can also go online to see the gadget's most recent location and the last 10 points tracked. Cost: $200 for the device and one year of standard tracking, then $50 a year

The 12-ounce device, which has a rubberized top and bottom, can connect simultaneously to two Bluetooth-enabled devices, including smartphones and laptops, from up to 40 feet away. The stereo speaker, which also has a standard headphone jack, sounded crisp and clear during phone calls and pumped out impressive bass during songs. Available in four colors, the device comes with several apps, including one that converts voice messages into e-mail text, along with two USB charging cables and a carrying case. The battery lasts about eight hours fully charged. Cost: $199
