Casio PRO TREK WSD-F30 Android WearOS smartwatch review

REVIEW – Casio manufactures a wide range of electronic goods, from calculators to musical instruments. But I would argue, Casio is best known for their wrist watches…particularly their G-SHOCK line. For decades the G-SHOCK has been one of the goto watches for rugged dependability. A watch engineered to survive a march thru hell and back …

Anova Precision Sous Vide Cooker Pro review

REVIEW – I have wanted to try sous vide cooking for years. We have several friends and coworkers who swear by it. I understood the science and thermodynamics of how it works but I was always a little skeptical. While I have been tempted, I have been procrastinating more than anything…never pulling the trigger on …

Jabra Elite 85h wireless noise-cancelling headphones review

REVIEW – Over-the-ear headphones have grown on me over the past few years. I have preferred sport-centric earbuds due to their portability and ability to survive sweaty, nasty workouts. But I have come to appreciate the comfort, sound quality, and added features that over-the-ear headphones bring to the table. My current go-to earbuds are the …

Polar Vantage V Pro multisports watch review

REVIEW – I love receiving new fitness gear to review…nine times out of ten, it amps up my desire to get/be/stay in-shape, workout, pound pavement, etc. As the years roll by, it gets increasingly difficult to be epic but I am a firm believer in that you get what you sow. Today’s tech-world gives us …

QwerkyToys Qwerkywriter S mechanical keyboard review

REVIEW – As I’m sure the Gadgeteer Kid, my wife, and many friends & family would attest to, I’m pretty old school. While I do love tech-toys and modern conveniences, I could easily see myself living in past decades. So when I came across the Qwerkywriter S, it definitely caught my attention. I’ve been wanting …

totallee iPhone Xs Max screen protector review

REVIEW – I am definitely a firm advocate for the use of screen protectors, going back to the cr@ppy thin plastic films I applied on my Palm Vx. I even pressure many friends and family members to use them. I even go so far as to supply and apply them…obsessive, compulsive I know. Today’s multilayer, …

Schon DSGN Classic Machined pen review

REVIEW – In today’s world of our nonstop keyboard clicking, the written note is definitely the anomaly versus the standard anymore. Even our signatures are digital these days, involving a smart-chip, fingerprint, special code, etc. But the ballpoint pen endures…I would guess most of those reading this review have a nice writing instrument in their …

Mobvoi TicWatch S2 Wear OS android smartwatch review

REVIEW – Along with being a tech junkie, I’m definitely a watch guy thru and thru…mechanical, quartz, digital, fitness, smart, luxury, beater, etc. I have tried many flavors of timepieces and enjoyed the experience of wearing them all. Currently I waffle between nice mechanical watches and their high-tech, smartwatch brethren. Late last year Julie reviewed …

Mission Workshop Renan alpaca knit pullover/hoodie review

REVIEW – Last year the folks at Mission Workshop sent me a pair of their Icon City Pants to review. While not very techie or gadgettie, they are definitely a finely made, high-quality piece of clothing. Though, I hate to say it, I have passed them onto the Gadgeteer Kid who can pull off that …

Pad & Quill Oxford Leather iPad Pro case review

REVIEW – I have used many Pad & Quill products over the years, all created to last decades by artisans with high quality materials and old world craftsmanship. An excellent example of their rugged durability is the P&Q Field bag I reviewed years ago. My wife has used it daily and believe you me, she beats …

Jabra adds to their Elite series of headphones

NEWS – Jabra’s Elite Active 65t are my go to earbuds for nearly everything. They are with me 99% of the time, perfect for a lunchtime run, bus ride home from work, and everything in-between. That said, late last year Jabra released a business class version of their truly wireless earbuds, the Evolve 65t’s. According …
