With travel a growing part of business and daily life in 2014, it’s only natural that technology would be going more seamless and mobile to match. Brands are recognizing the need and Hyatt Place is leading the way for hotels. Hyatt Place has transformed the on-the-road experience in much the same way that leading innovators have transformed technology through added convenience, by providing free Wi-Fi and swiveling 42” flat screen TVs with USB charging ports custom-tailored to offer an experience that’s just right for modern travelers.

Designed to help you easily keep in touch with colleagues or loved ones, and boost productivity and entertainment while on the road, a variety of new portable gadgets reflect this growingly uncomplicated mentality. Following, you’ll find five of the best gadgets for business travelers in 2014, featuring top devices from CES and beyond, perfect for packing into any carry-on.

This revisiting of the classic camera updates its iconic design and fast-turn photos for the 21st century, transforming it into a 14MP Android app-enabled digital shooter with 4.5-inch LCD touchscreen display. Owners can easily share photos on social networks or print small snapshots in seconds, making it an excellent excuse to get out and explore scenic locales.

Everyone’s on the run these days. Save yourself from having to sprint for a power outlet with this combination battery life extender case and portable storage solution for the iPhone. Not only does it roughly double your smartphone’s battery life, but also offers up to 32GB of additional storage so you  can cram in hours of additional video, or thousands of photos and songs.

Time to wake up and grab an a.m. Kitchen Skillet? Wondering what’s in the news? Want to pay for a cup of coffee right from your wrist? This app-powered “smart watch” – a mini-computer for your wrist styled after classic men’s watches – offers a high-tech way to keep the time, and keep up with the latest innovations.

Here’s the scenario: You’re resting in the cozy corner of a spacious Hyatt Place room, when the office calls, requesting that you create a presentation for a key client ASAP. Rather than squint a tiny laptop screen, just plug this accessory into an HDMI port on your monitor or TV, and you can wirelessly stream your screen right to its display. Problem solved!

It’s not easy to stay fit on the road. But with this fitness tracker – an electronic wristband that tracks physical activity, monitors health, and suggests when to step it up or dial back on activity – you’ll always stay in stride. Seamless and uncomplicated, it’s exactly how every experience (the travel experience, working experiences, your entertainment experience, etc.) should be.
