Since getting my Apple Watch, I have used it regularly for months for day to day activities. Now that winter is over, tennis season has started up, and with that, more physical activity that could potentially damage my expensive watch.

It's that time of year again; the days are longer, nights are warmer, and the nature is calling. Like many of you, I enjoy spending time outside as Summer approaches.

The availability of low-cost high-resolution cameras, robust internet networks, sophisticated video compression and 128-bit encryption make modern IP cameras a possibility, yet it is the ever growing desire for video monitoring and automated security that drives innovation in this market. A prime example of this growing trend is the SpotCam Sense. Announced in February 2017, the… Read More

It has been quite a while since I have reviewed anything from Orbino. I had forgotten how nicely done their leather products are. So much so, that you almost need a case or carrying bag to carry the case that is protecting your smart device...silly as that sounds. Their products are "made entirely by hand… Read More

Outdoor party season is fast approaching, folks! At my house, that means it's time to fire up the grill, dust off the patio furniture, put the drinks on ice, and fire up the tunes. To help in the music department I'm testing the Tronsmart Element T2, an outdoor water-resistant Bluetooth speaker, to see how its… Read More

We have reviewed numerous dash cams over the years, but I believe that this is the first backup cam that we've reviewed. If I'm wrong about that, then the Pearl RearVision rearview car camera is definitely the first wireless backup cam that we've ever reviewed on The Gadgeteer. Let's put the car in reverse and check it… Read More

Remote controlled planes, helicopters, and drones can be a lot of fun if they are easy to fly and don't shatter into a million pieces when you crash them, which you know will happen. The newest drone to fly the skies near my house is the Parrot Swing minidrone. Let's see how fun it is to… Read More

Pairing a Bluetooth keyboard with your phone or a tablet turns it into a pseudo laptop for those times when an on-screen touch keyboard just won't cut it. Add the ability to fold the keyboard into a smaller form factor and you have a perfect accessory to keep in your gear bag. What if I told you that… Read More

There are a few Gadgeteer reviewers who have liked Waterfield bags, myself included. For years, Waterfield has made bags of all sizes and uses—and they are made in the good ole U.S.A. My first Waterfield product was a small, zippered pouch to hold my iPod (remember those?) along with earphones and necessary wiring. Last year… Read More

The Resonate earphones are the third pair I've reviewed from the UK based Rock Jaw audio company. For the last few years, Rock Jaw has made quite good, yet inexpensive earphones almost anyone can afford.

I really love products that help me to organize my house and thus when the Gadgeteer was offered the Alxum 10-Port USB Smart Charging Station & Organizer, I jumped at the chance to review it. I have a side table in the living room that has been functioning as my kids' gadget depository (four iPad… Read More
