Slightly out of range, but if you can afford few more buck, Xiaomi Mijia is another fantastic option for a compact action camera
2 Fitness Trackers
Keep a tab on activities like steps, distance, calories burned and sleep with fitness trackers. They all have some nifty features like call or text alerts on display, customisable clock face, waterproof and more but all under the head of $100 if you looking to buy a tech gift.
Fitbit Charge 2 is a great option for many reasons such as splash resistance, connected GPS, all tracking gizmo and syncing tech with cross platform devices.
Moov Now is another spectacular choice. 4-7 colour options, real-time couching, swim tracker, 6 month battery life and Omni Motion sensor tech tracks accuracy for all sorts of stuff.

RavPower device comes with 32000mAh capacity. You get 3 iSmart 2.0 USB ports capable of 70% faster charge.
4 Bluetooth Speakers
For the music lovers in your family, set them up with one of these fantastic portable Bluetooth speakers. This gift allows people to stream their music via Bluetooth to loud but compact mini speaker. For less than $100 mark, you can get your groove on in seconds.

5 Crash Sensing Mount
Do you know someone who is into cycling? Hook them up with this ICEdot Crash Sensor mount attaches to any helmet and detects critical impacts. When the sensor is triggered, the paired phone sounds an alarm and also alerts your emergency contact via text message with your current GPS location coordinates. It pairs easily with a companion app running on your smartphone via Bluetooth and for under $100 you get peace of mind and your very own hiking/cycling fetish satisfied as well.
6 Solar Chargers
The title says it all. Simply take it outside, let it charge and then go travel. When your phone dies, simply plug your phone in, and let the solar energy do the trick. It’s great for techies who love the outdoors. Priced under $100 mark, these chargers might be the magic you or your friends need this year.
Solio is a solar-powered charger that you should look at and if that’s not cool enough, look at RavPower’s 24W solar charging technology. ToughTested is one sweet piece built for all sorts of rugged weathers. You not only get IP67 Dustproof/Shockproof/Waterproof (submersible) Power Bank, but a pretty nifty super bright LED flashlight as well.
Aukey’s 28W solar panel is another great option if you are looking to for tech gift.
7 UV Sanitizer & Phone Charger
For the hygiene freak, set them up with this UV sanitizer 2.0. Simply connect the Sanitising device to a power outlet, place your phone inside and shut the lid. When the cleaning process is finished, the indicating light on top will go out. It takes about 5 – 10 minutes to get the germs off of your phone. This equipment is big enough to accommodate phones and phablets under 6.8″ L | 3.74″ W | 0.78″ H. This unique sanitizer by PhoneSoap (yes, that’s the manufacturer’s name) also acts like a charger. Simply connect the USB charging port into the back of this device and pass the wire through the secret tunnel to connect the phone while it sits for its UV bath 🙂 This particular gift idea was also taken from the MyUS newsletter which I’m subscribed to!
8 SCOTTeVEST Chloe Glow
For the fashionable tech lover, hook them up with the Women’s or Men’s ScotteVest jackets. Elegant and fashionable, this zipper jacket offers pockets designed for carrying the latest and greatest devices that they have already received during the year, and at the range between $65 and $95, it’s a steal for something this great.
