Apple iPhone 11
Show your smarts with this smartphone
When Apple releases a brand new iPhone, it’s sure to make major waves in the tech industry. However, the iPhone 11 commanded user attention for being one of the most affordable models released in recent years. The newest design features a second wide-angle back-facing camera, wireless charging, ultra HD video format and water resistance. The 11 operates with a 6.1-inch touch screen display, smaller than the 11 Pro Max and larger than the 11 Pro models.
Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II
Let the right sounds in and keep the noise out
A good pair of over-ear headphones makes for the perfect way to treat yourself this holiday season. These Bluetooth enabled noise-canceling headphones come with a detachable standard audio cable and a carrying case for easy transport. The second generation of QuietComfort 35 also features support for Google and Siri voice assistants, an integrated microphone, music player functions and call connection controls to sync with any Bluetooth connected device.
Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro
Easily sync up a world of fitness upon your wrist
In the competitive world of fitness watches, the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro boasts an impressive list of capabilities, including real-time heart rate monitoring, step, sleep and calories-burned tracking. Available in small and large sizes, the Fit2 Pro allows you to view weather alerts, text messages and music storage on a 1.6-inch color curved AMOLED display. With a battery life of up to five days and social features that allow you to share fitness accomplishments with friends, this tracker can help make your fitness journey fun and easy.
RAVPower Wireless Charging Stand
Enter a world of worry-free power supply
Looking to cut down on the cords this holiday season? The RAVPower Wireless Charging Stand lets you charge cord-free and allows for phone usage while charging (unlike horizontal designs). HyperAir technology and triple temperature controls let you safely charge Android and iPhone models like the XR from zero to 50% in an hour.
Somneo Sleep and Wake-Up Light
Give yourself the gift of a good night’s rest
Make yourself a morning person with the alarm clock that knows how to wake you up the right way. The Philips Somneo introduces a gradual sunrise to your room — to ease users out of deep sleep — and includes sound and alarm settings you can customize to better suit you. The light features a touch-screen interface to edit settings, USB and auxiliary cords to charge additional devices and stream your own music and a sunset simulation and guided meditation for bedtime.
