QuietOn 3 Sleep Earbuds Are Perfect for Home, Work, and Travel

Dan reviewed the QuietOn 3 Sleep Earbuds with active noise cancelation a few months ago; he’s happy to report that he still uses them every night. With CES 2022 on the way, I got the opportunity to check out a different use for the QuietOn 3; I wanted to see how well this latest generation worked while on a plane or in other situations where I might find myself needing peace and quiet.


Gear Diary’s Best of CES 2022 Awards

After spending countless hours scouring the latest press releases, sitting through virtual embargoed showcases on new products, planning to be in Vegas, and once again having to attend virtually, we’ve found that the best-laid plans don’t always work out. Even so, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most innovative and exciting tech that came out of CES while trying to stay away from products that won’t ship or become available in 2022. So, without further ado, we present Gear Diary’s Best of CES 2022 Awards!


Steambox Is a Self Heating Lunchbox That Will Allow You to a Enjoy Hot, Delicious Meal Anywhere in Just 15 Minutes

Do you often bring your lunch to work or school? It’s so much better to bring your own food than to dine out or pick up fast food, but it’s usually so inconvenient! I’ll bet that you hate having to microwave your leftovers or prepped foods (it makes them so dry!), or even worse, eating them cold. If that’s the case, you probably ought to check out Steambox; it’s a new way to keep your packed meals hot and delicious with steam.


Elidah ELITONE Brings Discreet and Effective Therapy to Women with Pelvic Floor Disorders

One of the most interesting parts of CES each year is seeing the innovations in health and wellness. It’s a chance to showcase both the big technological leaps in health as well as the opportunity for smaller companies to show how they’re looking to make our lives better. The Elidah  ELITONE is a device aimed at women to solve an issue that many women won’t talk about: pelvic floor disorders.

Morphee Zen: A Screen-Free Device That Offers Meditation and Wellness Breaks On-The-Go

Every now and then, you need to take a mental break, even if just for a few minutes, so you can manage your anxiety and stress and “place your thoughts elsewhere.” But picking up your phone or looking at another distracting screen isn’t necessarily the best way to get that done. The Morphee Zen is a pocketable, screen-free, and non-digital solution that can provide mental wellness sessions throughout the day to reduce anxiety and boost concentration and mental focus.


Oral-B Continues to Innovate, Strengthening Their Commitment to Access, Education, and Improvements in Oral Health

Have you been taking care of yourself as well as you did before the pandemic began? Or have you fallen into a survival mode existence? With all of the extra stressors, uncertainties, and everything that has been going on, has your diet, oral health, and general well-being become collateral damage? If it has, you’re not alone. While Oral-B can’t solve or stop the trauma that so many have been dealing with, the company is trying to help refocus our attention to the importance of oral health and self-care by making the tools to achieve it more accessible.



Movano Ring Will Track Daily Health Data, Making It Easy to Understand and Giving Actionable Results

Are you looking for a health wearable that tracks more than steps and heart rate and that doesn’t require being worn on your wrist? The Movano Ring may be just the ticket. Correlating all of the data points gathered, including heart rate, heart rate variability, respiration, temperature, blood oxygen, steps, and calories to one another, allows the Movano Ring to give a more impactful level of understanding of how women’s daily activity affects their health.



L’ange Thinning Therapy System for Hair Loss and Thinning Hair Review: Can It Really Make a Difference?

A variation in the EDAR gene1 determines the thickness of individual hairs growing on our heads; how densely hair grows is determined by our race2, age2, and hair color3. It’s normal to shed 50-100 hairs4 each day, and as we age, it’s normal for even the thickest hair to grow thinner and less dense5. Combatting genetics, natural hair shedding, and aging can seem impossible when your goal is a thicker, denser head of hair. The L’ange Thinning Therapy System says it can help correct hair loss and thinning hair, but does it work?


Citizen Rolls Out New CZ Smart Hybrid Smartwatches

Citizen watches have a specific and, in my personal opinion, fantastic aesthetic. It’s not shocking that with the advent of smartwatches, Citizen would want to be part of that market; to that end, they’re combining Citizen style with the brains of a smartwatch with their new CZ Smart Hybrid Smartwatch, which they call “Genius incognito.”



Amazfit GTR 3 Review: A Refined and Solid Fitness Tracking Watch!

Morphee Presents an Uncomplicated, Unconnected Way for People of All Ages to Relax and Get Their Best Night’s Sleep

I often fall asleep listening to meditation music on my phone, but I also loathe having my phone in my bedroom because it’s too tempting to read or catch up on news and messages when I’m supposed to be winding down.

HAVEN Central Air Controller Has Your Whole House’s Air Quality Monitored and Controlled from One Place

It’s safe to say we’re all a lot more aware of air quality than we used to be. Whether it’s due to outside environmental issues like wildfire or just the fact that we’ve all realized our houses are full of dust after we spent half of 2020 in lockdown, we’re all a lot more aware that all the air we breathe is not equal. That’s where the HAVEN Central Air Controller and their other IAQ (Improved Air Quality) devices come in!

But looks aren’t everything; the Withings ScanWatch Horizon is also a powerful, medical-grade hybrid smartwatch that can help keep you on the right track for good health and extensive body monitoring.
