Soundpeats Qy7: Work out to wireless music without spending a bundle

I started shopping for Bluetooth earbuds. I'm on a tight budget, so the inexpensive Soundpeats Qy7 caught my eye. I picked them up on Amazon for $29.99 and have been running with them for a couple of weeks now. They sound great and can't be beaten for the price.

Jawbone UP3 review: Tracking your way to better health

The latest Jawbone tracker ups the ante on their previous generation with new heart rate monitoring sensors. The app is as great as ever, and plugs into plenty of other services, but is it enough to get one in addition to (or instead of) an Apple Watch?

Apple Watch: A brilliant addition to my life

I knew I wanted an Apple Watch since I first saw it announced it last September. My son has told the story already, but when he called me to tell me he was flying home from the event, I told him I was replaying the video again, and already figuring out which one I wanted and how I was going to use it. Little did I know just how much!

iPod touch 2015 review

This isn't the next generation of iPod touch: It's still the same general design Apple introduced back in 2012. Gone is the old 32-bit Apple A5 chipset; in its place is the scorching fast Apple A8. Gone also is the old 5-megapixel iSight camera, replaced with a much better 8-megapixel iSight. There's also a better front-facing FaceTime camera, faster 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a fresh exterior finish. But is it enough?

Sena Heritage Commuter bag review

Carry up to a 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro in high style with this designer leather bag.

Sena makes gorgeous leather cases for the iPhone, and their expertise extends to full-on bags, too. The Heritage Commuter is a leather-clad carrier designed to accommodate up to a 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro, but literally every other laptop Mac currently in production will fit inside too, with plenty of room to spare.

Review: HiRise for Apple Watch

An austere, handsome stand for the Apple Watch.

Twelve South stands apart from many peripheral vendors for their singular focus on making products designed to complement Apple's aesthetic. They make cases, stands and other accessories that look beautiful with Apple computers and mobile devices. I've used their gear for a long time and I love almost everything I've tried.

Sport Band for Apple Watch review

Colorful. Smooth. Sporty. The Apple Watch's base-level band is anything but cheap.

I had no choice in the matter of getting a Sport band. But it's been about a month and a half, and not only do I love my white band — I may have also picked up every other color of Sport band available.

Apple iPhone Lightning Dock review

The new Apple iPhone Lightning Dock promises to be compatible with everything from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 6 Plus.

It accomplishes that minor miracle by eschewing the old, grooved design of the past for new, flat one that presents only a surface and a Lightning connector. That way the width of the phone doesn't matter now, nor will it matter into the future. So we know the new dock is flexible — but is it any good?
