- Recent research found that we retain information better when writing by hand, rather than typing.
- A combination of written notes and digital files is ideal for the modern world.
- The motion-tracking sensor in this pen transforms your handwriting into digital text so you get the best of both worlds.
We all love our devices. The ease of sending texts and searching for information has changed our world. Voice texts are common, as are grammatical mistakes from typing on tiny keyboards. But it turns out that handwriting bestows many benefits.
A recent study in Norway found that writing by hand helps us remember better. This not only helps us in the course of our day, but also means we’re less likely to fall victim to memory loss as we age. Memory is like muscle—the more we use it, the stronger it becomes.
The SyncPen 2nd Generation Smart Pen with Notebook offers the best of both worlds. After writing down your thoughts, the motion-tracking sensor then transforms your scribbling into digital text. And for a limited time, it is on sale for $149.99.
Even better, SyncPen comes with a 10-inch LCD writing pad that allows you to jot down notes in different colors. From there, you can directly send your notes as an email to others, collaborate with teams to share notes, or even record audio logs alongside your text.
Sync this powerful pen with the free app to keep track of everything you write. Then convert your notes into PDFs, JPGs, or Word documents.
