Web Exclusive: Buying for the high-tech Valentine in your life

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - Valentine's Day is just about a week away. This year, update some of the classic, go-to gifts with some hot pieces of technology.

A fancy watch that just sits on your wrist and tells time is too old fashioned for some people these days. It's all about the smartwatch. Some sync with your phone, some have their own apps. Some, like the Pebble Steel look sleek while giving app access. Pull up sport scores through ESPN, read restaurant reviews on Yelp and even play some tunes thanks to Pandora. For $250, you're giving much more than a fashion statement. 

You've given pajamas, even satin sheets in the past. This year, pony up for the Sleep Number X12 Smart Bed. This mattress tracks your sleep with built in pressure sensors, has adjustable positions for reading or even quieting the snorer next to you. With the promise of a better night's sleep, it'll run you about 8-thousand dollars!

Finally, it might be a bit of a cliche, but who wouldn't want a new car for Valentine's Day? Get your loved one on the waiting list for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette. Its advantage over the 2014 model? The integrated performance data recorder meaning, there's a cool camera built in that can capture your laps on the track, or even just driving down the street.
