Did you receive a gadget last Christmas, if so, good news, according to new research using technology in the bedroom helps couples spend more time together.
OK most of us probably received some sort of gadget device last Christmas, we had more fun shouting commands at Alexa than we did playing our annual game of charades, but for couples new research has found keeping nine gadgets in the bedroom on average is improving quality time together.
New research of 1,153 UK adults carried out by gadgets and technology e-tailer, LaptopsDirect.co.uk, found that (68%) said they are more likely to go to bed earlier to spend quality time together as a couple – such as settling in to watch Netflix or enjoy a Podcast in bed.
We’re not ones to grumble about a Christmas film on Netflix!
The top ten gadgets kept in the bedroom included: Amazon Echo/Google Home speakers, baby monitors, smartphones, tablets and televisions, with this being the most popular devices used – no surprise there then.
Mark Kelly, marketing manager at LaptopsDirect.co.uk said “It’s great to see how couples are using gadgets to their advantage to enhance their relationships in 2019. In a world where personal relationships are constantly strained, if watching their favourite show together on a tablet means a couple is more likely to snuggle up and enjoy relaxation time in the bedroom together, that can only be a good thing.”
Oh well we all know what our better halves are going to get this Christmas….
