Default usb hub advice for spectre x360

so with my new laptop I have 1 usb3 port
1 thunderbolt and 1 usb C

I use either one of usbC ports for charging
the laptop comes with usbC charger so technically I have 2 usb ports and 1 sd card
and 1 hdmi

the problem:
I have the tuning kit which comes with tactrix + 2 usb dongles (guardant and senselock)
so I need 3 usb ports to run this setup

i was suggested to either find a usb hub or find emulators for those dongles

i looked for emulators and found one that i have to send the img file to the donglemaker which seemed a bit weird...

i also looked at usb hubs but got stuck at which one would work better for this.

should i get a usb C to USB hub or usb3 hub and is there a specific type i should get with this?

i would prefer donge emulators though . it woul make my life a lot easier not to carry those around since i have to pay for them if they get lost or broken and we all know usb dongles break rather often
