One of the complaints I’ve heard many times about smartwatches is that they’re too thick, too large, or they look too masculine. That’s understandable, especially when the one complaining isn’t a larger person. Options have been somewhat limited for those who’d prefer a less massive watch with smart features, but now there’s Ticwatch, and it’s surprisingly impressive.

We’ve just reviewed the Honor 6x, and we have one unlocked gray Huawei Honor 6x Smartphone to give away; here’s how you can win one:
If the idea of putting a classic wooden knife block on your kitchen counter just doesn’t appeal to you, then you might have considered putting them in a drawer. That’s torture on your knives; they’ll rattle against each other, eventually becoming dull. Look for a knife block with a modern, architectural style, one like the Edge of Belgravia Black Diamond.
Spring DIY season is coming up fast, and Bernzomatic — the leader in handheld torches — wants to outfit deserving professional tradesmen with new gear to start it off right. Are you (or someone you know) a DIY’er? Then this is a giveaway you won’t want to miss.
Are you one of those people who can’t ever seem to keep up with all of your “stuff”? Whether it’s your keys, your backpack, your wallet, or your remote control — the Pixie can help you keep locate almost anything when it has gone missing.
It would be impossible for me to guess how many iPhone cases I’ve reviewed over the years, but I can count the number that have genuinely impressed me on one hand; the PITAKA Aramid Fiber iPhone 7 Case makes that list. It’s incredibly light and thin, and it provides minimalistic protection with no compromises.
With wireless being the way that so many headphones have been going, and with built-in 3.5mm jacks becoming rarer, it might seem, I don’t know, maybe a bit retro to review a pair of wired-only headphones. Even so, the Focal Listen Closed Back Over-Ear Headphones are worth a look.
Last week, along with a group of other auto writers, I attended the National Press Introduction for the 2017 Kia Niro in San Antonio, Texas. The Niro is Kia’s new crossover hybrid, poised to take on Toyota Prius customers who are ready for more passenger room and utility space.
I recently reviewed the Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 headphones; now I’ve got their slightly more upscale brother, the Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 SE, in hand. Everything I enjoyed about the BackBeat PRO 2 is present (do check out their review if you haven’t already), but with the PRO 2 SE headphones, there is even more to love.
I’ve tried plenty of phone holders in my vehicles, but the one thing that always stops me from wanting to keep using them is that they can be bulky, ugly, or they require special attachments to use. The Just Mobile Xtand Vent is a sleek, minimalistic vent holder for your phone. It works well, and it looks good.
One of the things that I used do when packing to go overseas was to make sure that I had my collection of plug adapters and a bulky international power strip ready to go; these days I just make sure that I have the Oneadaptr Twist+ World Adapter DUO.
Now, more than ever, we need serious investigative reporters to uncover the truth. We are proud to support the work the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post are doing in this increasingly toxic climate.
Finding a spot to plug my USB cables into is a never-ending game that gets played out every day; there are simply more cables than I have ports for, and every new generation laptop seems to come with fewer (if any at all). If you’re in the same boat, the Just Mobile AluCharge can help.
Whether you’re filming home movies, video blogs, concerts, or sports events, the one thing those videos will have in common (if you’re doing it with your iPhone) is that your arm will get tired and they’ll be shaky. For the steadiest videos, you’ll need a gimbal; look to the FeiyuTech SPG PLUS 3-Axis Gimbal if you need stability with options.
It’s hard to imagine that a product commonly called “the best vaporizer in the world” would need much of an upgrade, but just as most products can use a bit of incremental improvement, the PAX 3 Vaporizer is the upgraded and latest model in an already strong line.
One of the hardest people to buy for is the person you’re in a new relationship with. If you get something too personal, you might send the wrong message; get something too expensive, you’re setting a dangerous precedent. The Brooklinen Classic Core Sheet Set is a thoughtful, slightly decadent, reasonably priced, and practical gift. And who doesn’t love new sheets?
I travel out of the country a minimum of three times per year, and in the past, I have had to find other options than AT&T (my carrier) because using their international plan just didn’t make financial sense. The new AT&T International Day Pass changes all of that.
It’s not enough that SanDisk has managed to stuff 256GB into a microSD card, they’ve also managed to make apps run from it faster. Check out the new256GB SanDisk Ultra MicroSD with A1 App Performance.
I am an amateur genealogist, and as such, I’m used to using sites to try to find missing relatives and other connections. With that said, there is one site out there that calls itself a genealogy site, but it is basically a stalker enabler of the highest order: FamilyTreeNow.com. Try searching your name on there, go on … I’ll wait.
Graceful, sensual, sleek, plush, refined, swanky, superlative yet practical and … these aren’t the words I’d usually use to describe a pair of headphones, but the Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless Headphones deserve those adjectives and more.
