Twist crams most of the world into a single charging adapter

10

An all-in-one travel charger for your mobile tech.

Travelling to another country and realizing that single travel charger you brought isn't nearly enough for your phone and watch and tablet may be the ultimate First World Problem to some, but the truth is travelling with multiple international chargers quickly fills your travel bag. UK chargers are much larger than US chargers, for example, and the adapters don't help a ton.

Twist is an interesting new solution that is especially useful for anyone who travels between multiple power systems, but it's also not bad if all you want is a good 4-port USB charger.

The concept is fairly simple. You have a big white barrel capable of outputting 20W/4A across 4 USB ports, with a twisting mechanism in the center that allows you to switch between US, Europe, and UK charging pins. You can also tweak the US charging pins so they match the Australian format.

The only thing stopping me from using this every day is how big it is compared to a traditional US charging adapter, but it's absolutely earned a spot in my travel bag due to how light and simple it is.

For $40 on Amazon, you're getting what you pay for. This is a little more expensive than some of the manual 2-port adapters, which is to be expected. It's unlikely to be something you use every day, but as someone who travels with a lot of USB tech this is a welcomed way to save space in my bag.

Hands on with the new Mophie and Incipio Moto Mods for Moto Z

40

There are new Moto Mods on deck for the Moto Z family, and they're coming in the next couple of weeks.

While we've already seen the first — a 3,000mAh battery add-on from popular accessory maker Mophie — we can confirm that it is available now in the U.S., at Verizon, for $79.99. That's the same price as those from Incipio and Tumi, except with a 36% premium in battery capacity. It's also slightly thicker as a result: 0.35 inches compared to 0.27 inches.

Best Touchscreen Gloves for Winter

11
Best Touchscreen Gloves for Winter

What are the best touchscreen gloves? The ones that keep your hands warm and actually work!

Not to bring up a meme that's done to death (literally, if you watch the show), but:

Winter is coming

That means that using your phone outside is uncomfortable and makes for frigid digits. That is unless you have some awesome touchscreen gloves that let you use your phone with toasty phalanges.

Not all gloves of this nature work very well, so here are the best of the best to keep you texting even when Jack Frost is nipping at your butt.

Mujjo double-layered touchscreen gloves

Mujjo

These dual-layer gloves are Mujjo's response to customers asking for something a bit thicker for colder climes. They added a layer of wool (just like grandma used to do!) so you can now have your phone and keep your hands warm too.

Silicone grips all over the palms of these gloves make sure your phone doesn't slip out of your hands in slippery weather, and Mujjo has made it so that you can use any fingertip, knuckle, and even the palm or heel of your hand. It's almost like you're wearing nothing at all… Nothing at all… Nothing at all!

See at Amazon


Agloves

Agloves

These acrylic gloves have ten-finger functionality, meaning you can use any finger to use your phone, while keeping warm.

They come in black, red, brown, navy, or white. These aren't the thickest gloves around and probably won't do the trick when temps drop below zero, but what are you doing standing around long enough to use your phone when it's that cold anyway?

See at Amazon


The North Face ThermoBall Etip

North Face ThermoBall Etip

As a Canadian, I can attest to The North Face's quality. The ThermoBall Etips are a little on the bulky side for touchscreen gloves, so movement is somewhat difficult, but they work exceptionally well, even in colder weather.

They come in men's and women's sizes and styles, so there's a ThermoBall Etip for everybody.

See at Amazon


Glove.ly Classic Touch Screen Glove

Glove.ly

The Glove.ly Classic lets you use any part of your hand to control your phone. They're not for arctic temperatures, but they're warmer than most of the thinner touchscreen gloves you might find.

If your screen gets smudged and dirty, you can use the built-in microfiber label to keep it clean, and magnets hidden under the logo help to make sure you don't lose a glove.

They come in small or medium/large, so make sure you choose the right size.

See at Amazon


Moshi Digits

Moshi Digits

The Moshi Digits are excellent touchscreen gloves that do a great job of keeping your hands warm and work very well when it comes to using your phone while wearing them.

They feature a double-layer of material that helps keep your fingers warm, even when it's quite chilly outside (better than most touchscreen gloves). Each glove also features Moshi's "GripTrak" pattern on the palm to ensure that you never drop your phone, even in icy weather.

Though they're dual-layered gloves, they shouldn't slow down your texting ability, even if you have fingers of lightning.

See at Moshi


Nanotips

Nanotip

Don't feel like buying a brand new pair of gloves? Nanotips makes it so you don't have to. Just paint a coating onto the thumb and fingertips of your favorite gloves and they become touchscreen gloves.

The efficacy of Nanotips really depends on the what material your gloves are made of, and you may see varying results with different pairs of gloves. Nanotips does make a leather formula and one for fabric/acrylic, so make sure you choose the correct formula.

Best car mounts for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge

41
Best car mounts for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge

Holding your phone while driving is a horrible idea. Get a car mount for your S7!

In many cases, it's illegal for you to hold your cell phone to your ear while you're driving, so a car mount is a great alternative. This way, you can throw up a Google Map before you embark and you'll be able to following your path like you would on any GPS device.

Get yourself a Bluetooth headset (or, better yet, a car with built-in Bluetooth) and you'll be able to answer calls, since pushing a button on your phone will be no different than pushing the buttons on your console.

If you've got the Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, then we've got the car mount roundup you've been looking for.

Spigen Air Vent Magnetic Car Mount

Spigen Air Vent Magnetic Car Mount

Gone are the days of gooey adhesives that muck up the inside of your pristine automobile. Magnets are where it's at. No, the magnets won't mess up your phone; you'll just have easy on and off mounting, which is what we all want, isn't it?

This Spigen mount has two sizes of slits to fit almost any car air vent and you can pop your S7 or S7 edge on in any orientation. All you do is stick the metal plate to the back of your phone's case and boom, your phone's magnetic and good to go any time. You can even take the mount with you and use it as a kickstand for when you're watching videos on your phone.

Note: you should stick the metal plates to a case and not the back of the phone itself. If you need some help finding cheap cases, we've got another round-up with your name on it.

It should also be noted that having the metal plate on the back of your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge's case will hinder wireless charging, so you'll have to take it out of the case for that.

See at Amazon

EnergyPal HC84K Car Mount

EnergyPal HC84K Car Mount

This particular mount serves a dual purpose: it holds your phone and doubles as a car charger. The end of the mount plugs into your cigarette lighter and looks like most USB car chargers, but an articulating arm extends upward from the unit into a three-sided phone holder. It softly cradles your phone, leaving the bottom open so you can run your charging cable down to the USB ports.

This unit comes equipped with over-charge protection, so you won't fry your phone if your car decides to short circuit on you. The gooseneck-style end can be rotated to any orientation, so you can view maps in landscape format if you fancy.

The only downside of this particular mount will be where your lighter plug is placed. If it's kind of hard to get to, then this particular mount may not work out for you, since the neck is only about 5 inches long.

See at Amazon


Logitech Drive One-Touch mount

Logitech Drive

If you're into a minimalist mount, then the Logitech Drive will suit your needs nicely. It mounts with just a twist and only takes up about 2 inches of either your dashboard or windshield.

The adhesive metal disc attaches to either your phone or its case (definitely preferable) and it securly mounts to the Drive in any orientation you like.

See at Amazon


iOttie Easy One Touch Car Mount

iOttie Easy One Touch Car Mount

This is one of those mounts with a sticky gel pad that you stick to your dashboard, so if you're worried about damage, you may want to sit this one out. However, the nice part about it being a gel pad is its ability to stick to uneven and textured surfaces, making this mount ideal for even the most oddly designed vehicle interior.

You've got a telescopic arm that extends two inches and bends 180 degrees, to give you versatility in terms of where you stick your mount. It comes with a one-year replacement warranty, so if anything goes wrong, you just contact iOttie and they send you a new one.

If the gel pad on the back gets all dusty and gross and won't stick anymore, you can just rinse it under warm water, let it dry, and it'll be good as new.

See at Amazon

Nite Ize Steelie

Nite Ize Steelie

This mount is just plain cool as hell. You stick the magnet to the back of your phone or case, and it easily mounts to the magnetic ball that mounts to your dash. It takes up next to no space, and you can mount your phone in any orientation you want.

The magnet is strong, so there's no worry of your Galaxy S7 or s7 edge falling off (unless you plan on off-roading), and the adhesive won't leave a grody residue on your phone or dashboard.

See at Amazon

Spigen Style Ring

Spigen Style Ring

If you want to go as minimal as possible, then the Spigen Style Ring is the only way to go. It's an adhesive piece, no bigger than an inch, that sticks to the back of your phone, with an articulating ring that doubles as a kickstand (bonus!).

Then, there's another piece, about the same size, that adheres to your dashboard or your console and you just hang the ring on it. That's it. It takes up about as much space as the volume knob on your radio. If you're taking some wild turns, it may jostle your phone out of place, but it's otherwise quite secure, despite how it looks.

Make sure you stick it to your dash during warmer months, since the adhesive won't really take in the dead of winter.

See at Amazon

ProClip mobile mounting solutions

ProClip

For a completely customized car mount, direct your attention to ProClip. They offer a two-part car mount solution that you customize for your specific needs. Firstly, you select your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus from the menu, and indicate whether or not you want to factor in the case you use. You'll be given a variety of six to eight images to choose from with specs and details for each phone holder offered.

Once you've decided on your iPhone holder, you move on to the custom mounting base. Select the kind of base you want (dashboard, pedestal, and so on) and select the vehicle you drive. The bases you will be selecting from are designed to snap into the seams of your dashboard or grip the necessary panels, so no sticky pads or bolts are necessary. Eliminate the guessing by customizing every aspect of your car mount and know that it's going to fit just the way you want it to.

See at ProClip

RAM mount

RAM Mount

The RAM mount is a heavy duty twist-locking suction cup mount that mounts on your dashboard or windshield. Made of marine grade aluminum, the RAM is just about as tough as they come and sturdily holds onto your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge and won't let go.

The rubber-coated tips ensure that your phone doesn't slip, and the holder is spring-loaded, so you don't need to fiddle with the mount with both hands just to get your phone in there.

If you need a mount that holds onto your phone with kung fu grip, check out the RAM.

See at Amazon

Important to consider

Double-check the ol' law where you are and make sure that it's not illegal to mount anything on your windshield.

You'll also want to consider the absorbency of your dashboard, since some adhesives may leave stains.

Best Fitness Gifts

20

It used to be that a pair of running shoes and some clean workout clothes were all the fitness gear you needed.

These days, a beats-blasting playlist and a fitness tracker are as essential to a good workout as anything else. Whether you or someone you know is just starting out on their fitness journey, or they're seasoned athletes looking to take their training to the next level, here's our recommendations for the best fitness tech to enhance your workouts and help you hit your fitness goals.

Fitbit Charge 2

When it comes to fitness trackers, Fitbit still reigns supreme. They've become so ubiquitous, chances are everyone has a co-worker, family or friend obsessed with tracking their steps and other fitness stats on their wrist. If you're unfamiliar, Fitbits track steps taken, flights of stairs climbed, and calories burned throughout your day.

Fitbit's latest wrist accessory, the Charge 2, is their absolute best yet. First, there's the vertically-orientated OLED display, which you tap to cycle through the different statistics and modes. The Charge 2 features Fitbit's PurePulse continuous heart rate monitor, which lets you quickly check your current heart rate at any moment, and also features the convenience call, text and calendar notifications that you'd expect from wearable tech.

Built-in GPS is missing, but Connected GPS allows you to use your phone's GPS to map your outdoor runs when tethered to your phone via Bluetooth. The silicone strap is sweat resistant, but you'll want to make sure to clean and dry it after each workout. It's also not waterproof, so don't even think about swimming with it on.

See at Amazon

Moto 360 Sport

The Moto 360 Sport is a smartwatch that combines many of the functions people want in a fitness tracker with the style and added functionality that's included with Android Wear.

As the name implies, this is the sportier version of the second generation Moto 360. Differentiating it from the non-sport is the inclusion of built-in GPS (a nice feature that's even missing on the FitBit Charge 2) and a body wrapped silicone strap. These two features, along with the heart rate monitor, make the Moto 360 Sport ideal to wear during workouts. The Moto 360 Sport's built-in GPS means you can leave your phone at home and go for a run, while still being able to wirelessly listen to your music via Bluetooth headphones. And the silicone strap, while a magnet for lint and dust, is also sweatproof and easy enough to clean.

Above all else, you'll get a piece of wearable tech you'll feel comfortable wearing from the office to the gym, with all the usefulness that Android Wear offers.

Withings Body Wi-Fi scale

Take complete control of your weight using the Withings WS-50, the smart scale that's designed to accurately measure your weight, BMI, heart rate, and even monitor the indoor air quality of your living space.

Allowing up to eight users on its personalized display, each person in your household can track their weight securely and monitor their goals using the Health Mate app (available for Android and iOS). As you weigh yourself each day, the WS-50 will display the weather and average temperature, giving you a heads up on how to dress before stepping outside and getting active. This smart scale is also compatible with a variety of other health apps including Google Fit, Apple Health, Runkeeper, LoseIt!, MyFitnessPal, and more.

TuneBand Go armband

There are hundreds of armband smartphone cases out there for bringing your phone with you on a run or a workout. This is because manufacturers typically designed a bunch of different models to fit specific phone makes and sizes. This means you'll end up having to get a new armband when it's time to upgrade to a new device.

That is, unless you get a TuneBand Go. This armband offers universal compatibility, as its rubber hooks are adjustable to fit phones from 5 inches to 6.5 inches in size. It also accommodates cases, and it's actually recommended you use one if you're concerned about the clips making direct contact with your phone's display.

NorthFace Thermoball Etip gloves

Winter is coming, which means it's time to haul out your cozy winter gear — lest you choose to stay indoors until spring. But you really ought to be heading outside and making the most of things, whether that means sledding, snowboarding or skiing, or simply walking through a winter wonderland.

If you want to enjoy the great outdoors — even when the temps are downright frigid — and still stay connected to your phone, you'll want to get a pair of touchscreen conductive gloves that are first and foremost warm and reliable. The North Face makes quality outerwear, and these gloves will keep your hands nice and toasty while still allowing you to use your phone's touchscreen via the conductive fibres in the fingers. The palms are also grippy, so that you don't accidentally drop your phone into a snowbank. Whoops!

These would make a great gift for pretty much anyone with a phone, and are available in styles for both men and women.

GoPro HERO5 Session

Getting active with technology doesn't always have to be about tracking steps or keeping your phone accessible. Sometimes you just want to head out there, strap an action cam on you and show the world how you have fun.

The GoPro HERO5 Session is a portable, rugged little 10MP camera that can shoot still, burst and time-lapse photos, as well as 4K video (also capable of shooting high-speed footage at 90fps in 1080p, and 120fps in 720p). It features voice activation as well as one-touch controls, and can be mounted pretty much anywhere, so you can just tap and go out and record all of your outdoor adventures. Whether you know a cyclist who's talked about wanting to document their daily commutes, or a budding action sports superstar looking record epic footage, the GoPro HERO5 Session is a gift choice that they'll cherish. Do note that they will also need a microSD card.

Jaybird has been in the Bluetooth headphone space since 2007, and their latest pair, the Jaybird X3 Sport earbuds, are an ideal option for the runner or athlete in your life that always seems to be complaining about their headphone situation. The two earpieces are tethered together, with a three-button remote for controlling playback and volume, and each pair come with several silicone and foam tip options, along with fins that help keep them secure in ear no matter how intense your workout gets. The size is small and compact, and yet the batteries are capable of delivering you great sound quality for up to eight hours.
