Feeling like a professional nomad as of late? Before you dash off to yet another far-off location, be sure to pack your carry-on with plenty of essentials that provide double duty in the work/life balance department. And since Verizon’s TravelPass feature extends to popular business travel destinations like Hong Kong and Europe, you can use your existing U.S. data plan abroad to work and play. Just check out our list below for our must-have business and leisure essentials.
- Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise cancelling headphones ($299.99): With up to 35 hours of playtime, your flight is guaranteed to be free of noisy (and nosy) neighbors, restless babies and more.
- ZAGG™ Pocket Keyboard ($69.99): While you’re tuning out the world around you, this Bluetooth® enabled pocket keyboard is perfect for responding to emails quickly and efficiently while still leaving room for a cocktail on your tray table.
- Samsung Gear S2 ($49.99/2-year contract, $349.99): Living in an always-on world doesn’t mean being tethered to an office. With the Samsung Gear S2, you can live life a little less connected and enjoy your travels (without suffering from separation anxiety from your phone).
