G-SHOCK multicolor Accents GAB2100FC-7A
This octagonal watch from the legendary G-SHOCK features a sleek white monochrome base that’s tastefully (yet playfully) accented with pops of primary colors (and a bit of green) on the dial and the bezel. It’s equipped with water resistance up to 200 meters, Tough Solar Power for convenient charging, and Bluetooth-powered Smartphone Link via the CASIO Watches app to access more settings on your smartphone.
This made it on our best home office EDC guide, and it’s a great option for keeping all your EDC devices and gear in one place. Not only does it offer a variety of internal storage options, but there’s a wireless charger in the lid for added convenience.
Anker 3-in-1 Cube with MagSafe
A nifty 3-in-1 charger with a unique yet convenient cube shape from the trusted Anker. It offers 15W of fast charging and can fit (and charge) you iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch all at the same time.
SAMSUNG T9 Portable SSD 2TB
This is one of the fastest portable SSDs from Samsung, and we’ve included the 2TB option here. It’s offered in 1TB and 4TB options as well if you have different needs.
Sony’s latest noise-cancelling earbuds are some of the best noise-cancelling earbuds you can get right now. You get AI noise reduction, 24 hours of battery life with the charging case, and IPX4-rated resistance.
Ray-Ban Meta Smartglasses
These shades from Ray-Ban are probably the most promising smart sunglasses out right now. They’re equipped with an AI-powered voice assistant, a 12MP camera for you to take pics and videos, and a mic for recording and taking calls.
Nintendo Switch OLED
This one is for the gamers, and it’s still the best Switch you can get. While the inside is mostly the same and outputs the same resolution, this updated version now sports a sleek 7″ OLED screen.
Leica SOFORT 2
This is a revamped version of a budget-friendly yet versatile camera from the legendary Leica. It’s perfect for both professionals and hobbyists and lets you print photos right from the camera itself.
GoPro’s newest HERO action cam comes with a large image sensor and smooth video stabilization. It’s capable of 5.3K video and 24.7 MP photos.
Now that you can finally get your hands on one of these, this holiday season is the perfect time to get the most powerful PlayStation to date (for yourself or as a gift).
Apple AirPods Max
You may have expected to see these here, and it’s because they remain the grail pick for so many, and make for a great gift for any Apple fan. You get active noise cancelling, around 20 hours of battery life, and Spatial Audio for immersive listening.
Nothing Phone 2
We covered this when it dropped in the US in July, and it’s proving to be a nifty and affordable alternative to your average smartphone. It’s equipped with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip and a 6.7” LTPO AMOLED display.
Samsung The Frame
Like the AirPods Max, this TV is still a popular grail pick for many tech heads, and the concept is still really cool. It offers 4K resolution and a variety of art to display when you’re not watching.
Apple iMac M3
The latest and greatest iMac sporting Apple’s fastest chip, the M3, which starts with 8GB of unified memory and the powerful processing power of the newest chip.
Bang & Olufsen Beosound A5 in Spaced Aluminum
Bang & Olufsen took the Besound A5 and gave it an all-aluminum redesign, with a pattern designed to make the individual metal discs look like they’re floating.
DJI Mavic 3 Pro
Closing it out, we have DJI’s latest Mavic Pro drone, with an added third 70mm camera supporting 3x optical zoom, 48MP resolution, and video at 4k/60fps.
