A gadget or gizmo is a device that has a useful specific purpose and function.For example Apple iPod is the popular gadget. Gadgets tend to be more unusual or cleverly designed than normal technology.

For example, a nifty digital watch would be a gadget, while an analog watch would be a gizmo.
In contrast, a device of clever design that has no practical purpose is called a novelty item.
The etymology of the word gadget is disputed. Some sources say it was "invented" when Gaget, Gauthier & Cie, the company behind the casting of the Statue of Liberty, made a small-scale version of the monument and named it after their firm. Other sources cite a derivation from sailors' terminology; the French g√Ęchette which has been applied to various pieces of a firing mechanism; the French engager, to engage one thing with another, or even a diminutive of the Scottish engineering jargon gadge, a form of measuring device.
