"I'm an Apple enthusiast, I love the seamless ecosystem they have built which allows continuity of activity from one device to another. I use MacBook Pro, iPhone and iPad which enables me to drop and pick up from any other device. Another must-have is a pair of good noise-cancelling headphones, I use Bose NC700 regularly since I'm on calls all day long given the current situation of remote working. These headphones perfectly cancel all the background noise and provide a good experience, especially during meetings. Lastly, I enjoy playing games on PlayStation - it's a stress-buster that allows me to stay productive throughout the week. I have been meaning to get my hands on the new PlayStation 5," shares Kunal Kinalekar, Co-founder & CTO, BeatO.

Apple AirPods - makes talking on calls effortless and clear. A must when you spend most of your day on calls
Apple Watch - allows me to stay away from the big phone screen during personal time. Also works great for physical fitness tracking
Gadget for unwinding/relaxing - a PS5 for playing multiplayer/competitive games like FIFA, UFC etc. The best thing to take the mind off work and yet stay active
Gadget for creativity - a DJI Mavic Pro drone while you are travelling, to explore nature and the beauty of a place from a different vantage point
Gadget for long calls - A wireless Bluetooth speaker, for times when you have more people discussing things together/you don't want earphones in your ears."
