An iPhone 6, an iPad mini, and an iPod Classic, as well as earbuds, stereo cables, and car chargers for all those devices.

We need to mention bifocals?  To me, they're just "my eyes" - never mind that I've been wearing bifocals since 1997...I've been wearing glasses since fifth grade and it's even more a part of getting dressed than putting on shoes.

Okay - double checking "tech" and adding a collection of ballpoint pens in my purse (red, pink, purple, blue, and black); a mechanical pencil; a paper calendar for two years (appointments are easier to write down in the office and then transfer to other calendars, including the on-line one, later), a leather purse; a flat series of pockets with a small battery operated light that wraps around the inside of my purse to hold small things so that they aren't layered on the bottom of my purse and even harder to find - one of those pockets holds sun block in a stick & another holds a combination flashlight & power bank; and the Bluetooth headset (if I remember to take it with me).

During the week:
-Phone
-iPad
-iPod shuffle + earbuds
-Fitbit Charge

When travelling:
-Phone
-iPod shuffle + earbuds + charge/sync cable
-Kindle + charge cable
-Win8 Netbook + charger
-DSLR Camera + lenses + card reader
-Fitbit Charge

On a normal weekend day, I've usually only got the fitbit, phone and the iPod (and ear buds) with me, but I do sometimes have the netbook (and its bits) and sometimes the camera (and its bits), depending a bit on what I'm doing.

A no frills cell phone. Text and calling. That's it.

Me, too.
You can add me to the no-frills cell phone list, too.  Mine is a flip phone, and I can text better with that than I can when trying to use my children's fancier phones. 

If I'm headed to work, there's my Nano with the music I listen to while at work.  There's also my badge which has some sort of chip in it that opens certain doors.

And if we're talking about glasses as tech, then yes, I don't even leave my bed without them (my eyesight is *THAT* bad--the eye dr office says that it's an insurance requirement for me to look at the chart without any corrective lenses and say what I can see ... now that it's a chart projected on the wall, I will say "There's a light on the wall" --my vision is so bad that I can't even really tell what the shape is.  I've got no-line bifocals with the ultra-thin lenses, which are still thicker than the frame).

Ink pens.  Credit cards and a debit card are in the pockets of my checkbook.

Daily - contact lenses, sometimes glasses as a backup in case the contacts fall out, leather purse (with my wallet, credit cards, etc in it), either a book or a Kindle, whatever project I'm currently working (currently that's a weaving project, so small frame loom, yarn, ribbon and tapestry needle) and smartphone.  I suppose the key fob that unlocks my car remotely is also considered tech.  I have a Misfit Flash fitness tracker, but it's hit and miss as to whether I wear it. 

Nothing much really changes if I'm traveling vs just driving to work and back.

I have a key fob for my car, RFID cards for access to my work building on days when it is closed, access to the employee/volunteer only area at the science center, for the gate at my apartment complex, garage door opener (stays in the car). On weekends or for special events, two DSLRs and a GoPro with all their accessories.

I used to wear a bluetooth headset in the car, but my car has it built in and that is one piece of technology I don't miss.

We will be getting headsets at work, and our desk phones will be leaving.

In my commute backpack I carry:
  • Touch iPod
  • 2 pair of wireless headphones
  • iPhone 6s (I think)
  • Set of ChiaoGoo circular, generally interchangeable, knitting needles
  • All the cords for my electronics above
  • iPad

If I go on vacation I add to the above:
  • Work iPad
  • Portable DVD player
  • DVDs
  • CDs
  • Speaker
  • Laptop

I wear a fitness tracker and trifocals (I carry two pair in my work bag).

Bifocals, a fancy leakproof coffee mug, and a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone.

During the school year, I carry a big ol' Lenovo laptop and usually my phone charger, too.

I have a 2nd Gen Kindle but rarely carry it unless I'm on vacation.

I wear my wristwatch every day and carry my smartphone and Kindle.  My phone is too small for me to read with my old eyes so I bring my older Kindle with me everywhere, you never know when you'll have some time to read. :)
