Protecting the slabs of glass we carry around has become a focus of concern for the modern Gadgeteer. We have these devices - tablets, phones, phablets, whatever - and they only want to succumb to gravity and destroy themselves in a crash of broken glass and shattered dreams. So we find cases to protect these [...]

withings-home-2

Julie and I have reviewed many Withings living-well products over the years, primarily smart-scales and activity trackers up to this point. Though in the past year, they have expanded their line-up to include baby, sleep, heart, and home products as well. In this case, Withings sent us several of their new high definition surveillance cameras to [...]

Henty Tube Backpack Review

Hentytube

Those that have read my previous bag posts will realize that my main love of bags centres around messenger style bags.  That was until I started bike riding.  While a messenger is fine for short-haul commutes, for me they're not stable or ergonomic enough for much longer rides.  As my fitness increases I find myself [...]

apple-watch-sport-first-experiences-12

I loved the idea of the Apple Watch, and I really wanted one.  But this summer we're doing some upgrades to our kitchen, and I felt I should just skip the Watch this year.  Pre-order day came and went without me placing an order, but I broke down and placed an order for the 38mm [...]

google-nexus-5

I've been looking forward to trying the Google Nexus 6 since it was first announced late last year. Sadly for me, I had to wait several months before this device became available through Verizon. I'm not sure why there was such a long delay, but now that I've had one for two weeks, it's time to let you [...]

TrackR Bravo review

Trackr2

The Internet of Things (IoT) is all the rage right now. Adding smart tech to an old piece of tech or something non-tech like a set of keys or a piece of luggage, however, can be a problem. Several companies have recently entered small tags that can be stuck on or clipped to one of [...]

fitbit-aria-1

Whether you call it the IOT (Internet of Things), being plugged in, or something else, I really enjoy using connected devices. Some people will say, who needs a thermometer that saves your readings or a fitness tracker that tells you how many steps you've walked each day. I say why not! I don't have the world's [...]

RCfibers-01

I've been downsizing the weight and quantity of "stuff" I carry around.  This includes my pockets.  RC Fibers makes a series of lightweight wallet products made in the USA, so I thought I'd take a look. First up is the Classic RC Carbon fiber money clip.  Measures 2.5 L x 1.75 W x .5 H (inches). This [...]

Wahoo-TickrX-1

Fitness gadgets are my exercise motivator. I love them. My only caveat is that they must be able to accurately track at the very least my heart rate and calories burned during a workout and not just my daily routine activities. The more data they collect the better. When the Gadgeteer was offered the Wahoo [...]

canvas-pop-matted-1

Almost five years ago I reviewed a wrapped canvas print from CanvasPop. That review inspired several others resulting in a lot of original framed images on my walls. Recently the people at CanvasPop contacted me to ask if I might like to do a new review. At first I didn't see the point but then [...]

calypsocase-macbook-7

Over Christmas, I finally jumped into the MacBook scene and picked up a 13" MacBook Pro with Retina display. The first thing I thought when I bought it was, "I need to find some sort of case for this expensive laptop!" For the first few months, I carried the laptop in two hands always, and [...]

keep

Two years ago Elizabeth posted a short news article about a new Google application called Keep. I read the post and then promptly forgot about it until a few weeks ago I saw my friend Bill Ray adding things to a list on his Samsung Galaxy S5 one day and I asked him about it. He said [...]

Thinksound_Rain2_2

“If the rain comes comes, they run and hide their heads.” When I think of thinksound’s new Rain2 earphones, I always think of the iconic Beatles’ song, “Rain”. I don’t know why, except that the Rain2 earphones serve as a counterpoint to the song—in my head, at least. It means that while the song, “Rain,” [...]

DSC_0005

Securing your bike when you’re out and about is perhaps the first thing a bike owner has to confront, once they’ve bought the bike and a helmet. As soon as you arrive at the post office, drugstore, or coffee shop on your first ride, you get off, and realize you’ll have to prevent someone else [...]

Soocoo S60-1

Action cam is a term that has permeated the fabric of today's youth. With the popularity of GoPro cameras, the market has been flooded with a whole slew of new offerings to knock the leader of its perch. The Soocoo S 60 is a new contender and they have asked us at The Gadgeteer to [...]

sena vettra st-01

I can never decide if I want a case on my iPad Air or not.  It's thin and wonderful to hold without a case, but you're at risk of damaging your tablet without one.  The Sena Vettra ST Leather Case provides a functional case that manages to remain slim. The Vettra ST comes nicely packaged [...]

emofix-1

I don't know about you, but I'm really sick of the whole selfie craze. No one wants to see image after image of your goofy looking duck face. But if you absolutely must use your phone to take pictures or videos of yourself, having a remote shutter button is a handy gadget for the selfie [...]

ameribag-hbbevo-bag-1

I work from home, so I don't use a laptop bag or large gear bag every day.  However, I do like to take my iPad with me when I go to an appointment, and sometimes I may even want to take my 11" MacBook Air.  I don't want to have to change bags every time [...]
