Tory Burch is more than happy to reveal its very first range of smartwatches that will hit the market this coming holiday season, where this particular line is said to extend the brand’s collection of timepieces even more. It is certainly encouraging to know that they are still going strong in this aspect, having first launched in the fall of 2014. The latest hybrid smartwatch range will be based on THE COLLINS, which comes across as a clean-lined, menswear-inspired design that happens to be one of the best selling timepieces from them.

The Tory Burch Collins hybrid smartwatch has been deemed to be the ultimate convergence of Tory Burch design alongside wearable technology, merging the elegance and simplicity of an analog watch with the capabilities of a world-class activity tracker. It might not look like much on the surface, but you can synchronize it to a smartphone over Bluetooth, making use of its dedicated app that plays nice with both iOS and Android platforms, to take advantage of several features.
Some features include precision timekeeping that changes time zones automatically when you travel, having a second time zone so that you know what time it is back home, notification technology that discreetly indicates when you have a phone call, text or email, activity tracking capability that automatically tracks and monitors daily activities, while keeping track of the length and quality of sleep with the Tory Burch Collins hybrid smartwatch app. Interestingly enough, this is one of the few smartwatches that do not require a charger, since it runs on coin cell batteries that enable extended use.

Casio’s obsession with rolling out quality timepieces has not stopped over the years, but rather, it has strengthened. The company has revealed its Gravitymaster G-Shock series in the past, but none of them have been up to the quality of this year’s model at Baselworld 2017 — where it is touted to be the first ever connected Gravitymaster G-Shock that has been released. This all new Master of G model will boast of Bluetooth connectivity that will hook up to your smartphone via an app, making it all the more versatile than ever before.

The GPW2000-1A also carries the distinction of being the very first Gravitymaster model that comes with a longitude indicator, apart from a latitude indicator. This will add a key function to record travel location and history for pilots when they carry out their missions. Additional premium features that Casio has thrown into the mix include a sapphire crystal for minimal scratching, carbon fiber second hand, carbon fiber insert band and a unique carbon band lock insert, where all of these prevents loosening due to heavy vibrations.
Not only that, the GPW2000-1A will arrive with triple time adjust that is made possible thanks to Bluetooth connectivity and G-SHOCK’s GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor technology. This results in even more accurate timekeeping regardless of where you are, thanks to the receiving GPS satellite signals or terrestrial radio signals from up to half a dozen transmitters worldwide, based on the current location and environment. Don’t expect the new GPW2000-1A to be cheap though, as it has an asking price of $800 when it becomes available from May 2017 onward.

Not all headphones are created equal, that is for sure. You can have earbuds that remain in place no matter how active a lifestyle you lead, while others might settle for a pair of noise-cancellation headphones — the large, bulky ones that make sure your long haul flight has one of the best possible experiences. Well, LG has released something that it teased at CES 2017 right at the start of the year — the LG Tone Ultra.
The LG Tone Ultra might be mistaken for a pair of headphones, but in reality, this is actually a new kind of wearable speaker that will make sure your body feels as though you were right smack in the middle of the action, be it a high octane game, or in an action movie.
The $299 LG Tone Studio is the latest around-the-neck Bluetooth wearable speaker that will play nice with Bluetooth audio enabled LG Smart TVs running WebOS, providing you with the experience of surround sound regardless of where you are. What makes the LG Tone Studio so special?There are not just one or up to three, but rather, a quartet of speakers that will truly let you immerse yourself in real 3D Surround Sound whenever you indulge in watching a movie, playing a video game, streaming music or simply talking on the phone.
During moments when personal surround sound is not required, the LG TONE Studio will boast of the legacy TONE tangle free, retractable earbuds that are seen in LG’s range up of Bluetooth headsets such as the LG Tone Ultra, LG Tone Active, LG Tone Infinim, and LG Tone Platinum. Sharing the action is as simple as turning on the Dual Play feature, as you hook up a pair of LG Tone Studio wearable speakers so that you can let everyone else around you enjoy sounds from a movie, playlist or others.
Dealing with people is usually the last thing anyone wants to do. While some humans are awesome, going out in public with a whole mess of them on a train, plane, or bus is sometimes overwhelming in a bad way. We use music and social media to tune them out, but that doesn’t completely remove the potential for eye contact, or worse…conversation.
If you want to completely tune out of reality and have a long commute home, where you don’t have drive or pay attention to your surroundings in any manner, then these Avegant Glyph Headphones will be a dream come true. These are a video headset that will let you watch movies, play games, and more through this audio and video portable theater. They can connect to just about any smartphone, tablet, drone, or gaming console up to 40,000 feet away, or about 7.5 miles away.
You’ll be able to wear these like normal headphones and use them as such, but obviously the big draw is the display aspect. The cool thing about this device is that it reflects light with over two million micro-mirrors, which replicates natural human eyesight, so you won’t burn out your eyes at such a close range to the screen! Keeping that in mind, these are not cheap at $499, but it will give you some measure of privacy when it feels like you have none.
Available for purchase on Amazon
