Health, fitness, and tech are an interesting mix. On the one hand, basic biology hasn’t changed since well before the first phone was invented. On the other, as technology improves rapidly, there’s always a new way to spin getting into shape.
Breathing is something we take for granted most of the time, up until something alters the environment like pollution or a fire. Then breathing becomes painfully important, and everyone walks around in masks that make them look like they’re playing Bane at a ComicCon. Ao Air has a solution that’s healthier and far more attractive with Atmos.
It takes a lot for companies to distinguish themselves in the ever-more-crowded true wireless earphone market. Motorola is one company that’s found a way. Their new Motorola TECH3 3-in-1 True Wireless Headphones are rather unique; here’s why.
Another CES has come and gone, and as we have in the past, we’ve sorted through hundreds upon hundreds of products to bring you the ones we thought were the most exciting, useful, disruptive, or clever. Take a look at our Best of CES 2020 award picks, and see what you think!
We’re here at CES 2020 doing everything we can to bring Gear Diary readers updates on all the exciting new and improved products we’re seeing. But it takes more than just being armed with a phone and a computer to survive the week. Here’s how we’re staying awake, staying healthy, and staying connected!
Most of us don’t think about what our digital footprint means. Think about the dossier Facebook, Instagram or Twitter have on you. Not to mention Amazon’s knowledge of your shopping and Google’s of, well, everything. HBO gave us a glimpse into what that could mean with a Westworld tie-in dinner this week that left us all a little bit unsettled.
I’ve avoided adding a grip to my phone because, quite simply, I hadn’t found one that I thought added enough features to make adding its bulk to my phone worthwhile. The Ohsnap phone grip changes all of that. I was a backer when they were on Kickstarter, and the Ohsnap has quickly become indispensable.
Everything we own these days needs to be charged. Phones, computers, earbuds, toothbrushes, watches, hats…if it’s an item you carry, it probably has a charging cable. Which means you need lots of power bricks. Aukey wants to help, and their new Omnia Series will make your life at least a little easier, even if you need to charge your shoes.
Buying skin concealer is big business, but it also can be extremely complicated. There are different shades, different consistencies, and sometimes you just want to cover a particular area but then have to deal with blending the coverage. Opte thinks they have a solution with a special wand and serum that helps to blend and target problem areas.
Roborock is one of the best robot vacuums that you’ll find on the market, with many of their vacuums currently in thousands of homes sucking up dirt and debris in corners, carpets and crevices alike. But the H6 takes what you know and love about the brand and does even better. Just launched at CES is the H6 — a new, more powerful handheld vacuum that what you’re used to. A first for the company, the H6 also boasts the first LiPo battery to ever be used in a cordless stick vacuum. There’s also a 90-minute runtime in Eco mode,…
For most people, sleep seems to be a precious and limited commodity. We never get enough of it, and despite many, many lectures about the importance of cutting back on screen time and other stimulants before bed, who can actually put the phone down? Philips SmartSleep platform is an ecosystem designed to make sleep better for everyone!
One of the best things about CES is learning about the future. Companies announce what’s definitely coming, but they also talk about their ambitious projects, the ones they’re still refining but show the direction they see for the future. Dell showed us two concept PCs this week that aren’t yet available but indicate where Dell sees the future of computing, and it looks amazing!
If you’ve never had to use a hairdryer, you haven’t given much thought to how time-consuming the process can be. You hold a device blowing air on your head until your hair behaves or you give up and find a hair tie. While Tineco can’t make your hair behave, their Moda One S hairdryer makes the process more intelligent!
The phrase “Doing ____ is like reinventing the wheel” isn’t something I say often, but when it comes to something as simple as a mirror, you’d never think they could truly evolve. But here we are in 2020, and Capstone Connected, a designer of consumer products that attempt to bring tech to everyday necessities managed to do that with their Smart Mirror.
If you hear “start-up” and think “Silicon Valley,” then you need to expand your horizons. There are a tremendous number of places where new ideas are bringing massive improvements to how we live around the world. The Seoul Smart City and Smart Life pavilion showcased for us some very exciting ideas coming out of Korea that are worth following closely! Here are five that piqued our interest.
The light in my laundry room doesn’t work properly. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it flashes so rapidly I’ve had friends joke it’s like a strobe light. One thing I learned from this is that there’s no really great solution for lighting in odd spaces, which is why Luminook has me so excited! See, Luminook is exactly what I’m looking for to deal with my laundry room that thinks it doubles as a bad club. It’s a powerful strip of LEDs that can be placed around a doorway in a closet or other poorly lit space that aim outwards to…
Starting off 2020 in epic fashion, Ring branches out from doorbells and cameras with six new products with the sole intent to be your whole-hole security brand of choice.
After Reviewing the Chili Ooler Sleep System back in 2019, one thing I didn’t think I needed until the company made their announcement at CES would be a weighted blanket. The makers of world-class sleep improvement products has announced their chiliBLANKET, and here’s why it should be on your 2020 list of things to anticipate. The chiliBLANKET isn’t that cheap weighted plastic bead blanket you purchased on Black Friday as a White Elephant gift that you didn’t know exactly who might be receiving. Most blankets like these tend to increase your body temperature because of their obvious weight but specifically…

A few larger names have dominated the electric car market, but Fisker should really be top of mind if you’re in the market for an electric SUV. Fisker Ocean is an electric SUV that’s offering flexible lease choices, sustainable materials, and a projected range of 300 miles! The good news is that Fisker Ocean looks amazing. It doesn’t have that extreme roundness that some SUVs seem to have developed, but it maintains a nice balance of curves and angles to give it a somewhat futuristic look while still hitting the aesthetics of a modern SUV. The interior is vegan with…
