You’ll likely get at least one gift this holiday season that needs to be charged. Unfortunately, companies like Apple no longer include wall adapters with their phones. Thankfully, Aukey offers a range of smart, technologically advanced charging solutions. You can see all their offerings here. First, though, take a look at the four offerings they sent us to check out.
Apple Watch Accessories
Nomad sent me their new Sport Strap to check out, and trust me — if you planned on getting an aftermarket band for your Apple Watch, this one needs to be it. It’s quite possibly the best third-party Apple Watch band I’ve ever used.
Amazon’s Prime Day event is running October 13th through 14th, giving you two days to save big on lots of items Amazon sells. Since Amazon basically sells everything, this has turned into a highly anticipated annual event. Here are some of the deals that have arrived in my inbox; I will add more over the next couple of days, so be sure to check back!
Almost a decade ago, Judie introduced me to a product from a new company called Nomad. It was the ChargeKey, a keychain attachment with a USB on one side, and a Lightning connector on the other. Little did I know Nomad would become one of my favorite accessory companies. On their 8th anniversary, the savings are yours for the taking.
Nomad makes some of the best wireless charging solutions available. I loved the original Nomad Base Station Apple Watch Edition (read my review) but missed the rear charging ports found on other Base Station models. Nomad just addressed that and just released a new version with ports galore; now you can charge pretty much all your devices at once.
If you happen to have an Apple Watch and a smartphone, you know one of the biggest issues is having to use multiple cables and setups to get them both to charge simultaneously. Now you can do that with the Kanex GoPower Watch Stand with Wireless Charging Base; it promises to be the solution to cables lying around your nightstand.
I love my fast, comfortable, cellular-connected Apple Watch Gen 4 and wear it daily. Over the summer, I used the Nomad Sport Strap so I could swim. (Read my review.) The rest of the time I’ve used the titanium band. (Read my review.) Since getting the new $69.95 the Nomad Active Strap, however, it’s been my “go-to” strap; here’s why.
Nomad has long been one of Gear Diary’s favorite brands, with everything from leather cases for our phones to bands for Apple Watches. For this Black Friday, they are marking down items on their entire site, with savings up to 70% off on some items.
Whether you’re a yoga instructor, a professional athlete or a casual gym-goer, you’ll want to learn more about the smartwatches on the market. If you have your eye on the Apple Series 5 Watch, here’s what you need to know.
The other day I reviewed mophie’s 3-in-1 charging pad. It’s ideal for someone who has an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPod’s with a wireless charging case. I have an iPhone. I have an Apple Watch. But I don’t have AirPods. Mophie’s dual wireless charging pad isn’t specifically designed for AirPods so, for me, it is a better option.
Mophie was one of the first companies to offer battery cases for the iPhone and other mobile devices. In the years since, mophie has emerged as one of the premier mobile device accessory companies. Now, with wireless charging becoming ubiquitous, mophie is adding new wireless charging devices to their catalog. The mophie 3-in-1 wireless charging pad is one such accessory.
Our friends at Nomad woke up this morning, realized it was Labor Day, and decided that their day off would be made even better if they held a flash sale. So that’s what they are doing! Nomad makes some of the best cables, charging hubs and phones case. We’re fans; that’s especially true when they are on sale.
Have you been looking for a way of getting fit this summer? The Activ5 is a new Pocket-sized smart device that will make sure you get a full body exercise virtually anywhere that you go.
I stopped wearing my first generation Apple Watch a few months after getting it. My 4th generation Apple Watch with cellular connectivity is a different story. I wear it every day, and it’s beginning to show. When I noticed a few small scratches on the screen, I knew it was time for Invisible Shield’s glass+ 360 for Apple Watch Series 4.
Two years ago I had the opportunity to cover Belkin’s Apple Watch Power bank which at the time was the first portable Apple Watch Charger on the market. In recent years a lot of imitators have tried to clone the popular charger, so Belkin has returned with the Boost Charge Power Bank 2K, and this is why you need it.
One of the best things about wearing an Apple Watch is the incredible range of watch bands available for it. One Apple Watch can not only have numerous watch faces but, within a few seconds, a new watch band can change its entire look. UAG has rolled out some great new options.
Bad news for the six people still holding out hope: AirPower is dead. Apple announced today that the iPhone/Watch/AirPod charging mat could not be made into a viable product. Also, they needed the manpower to get Apple Card up and running-those chamfered titanium edges don’t design themselves. If you were holding out and now need a wireless charging dock, Gear Diary has reviewed devices from Scosche, Satechi, TwelveSouth, Nomad, and many others. It may sting to know that you won’t be able to charge your headphones, watch AND phone all in a perfect, Apple-designed row, but at least there are…
If you’re planning on picking up a new pair of Airpods, be it the original Airpods, or the newly released Airpods 2, you should check out these two products from Nomad.
Grovemade is known for their innovative take on accessorizing your tech products, with everything from monitor stands for your MacBook down to speakers and even chargers for your iPhone. But one thing we’ve been waiting on the brand to make accessories for is the Apple Watch. And now Grovemade’s new Apple Watch dock adds a fresh take on making sure your smartwatch has power.
I loved my original Apple Watch but eventually stopped wearing it. Since buying the Series 4 Apple Watch, I’ve been wearing it daily. I’ve tried plenty of nice Apple Watch bands, but the Nomad Titanium Band (available in Silver or Space Gray) is in a league of its own. Sure, it’s pricey, but this is one beautiful and comfortable band.
Pitaka makes some of my favorite iPhone accessories and cases; of course, most of the accessories can be used by many other smartphones that have wireless charging. Let’s take a look at some of the new products Pitaka was showcasing at CES.
