Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition for Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge
While it might soon be eclipsed by more robust competitors, the Samsung Gear VR still amazes as the most impressive virtual reality you can buy right now.
Flir One ( for iOS)
Get the Flir One for its superior thermal imaging tech and overall ease of use, but be sure to consider specific, ongoing applications for this $250 accessory before you buy.
The Pronto turns your iPhone into a universal remote using the Peel app, but setup and control limitations make it a tough sell for more tech-intensive living rooms.
LG Watch Urbane
The LG Watch Urbane is the best-looking Android Wear smartwatch and adds Wi-Fi-to-phone connectivity, but it doesn't offer all that much more than previous Android Wear watch models.
Exact Frame Series iPhone 6 Case ( red)
The bottom line.
Garmin Vivoactive ( black)
The ultraslim design and laundry list of features can't overcome the buggy software. Once Garmin fixes these problems, the Vivoactive could be a good product, but until then, there are better options available.
Apple Watch Sport 38mm Silver Aluminum Case ( Green Sport Band)
The Apple Watch is the most ambitious, well-constructed smartwatch ever seen, but first-gen shortfalls make it feel more like a fashionable toy than a necessary tool. That may change with a big software update later this year, though.
Adonit Jot Script 2
A fine option for note-taking, especially if you're big into the Evernote ecosystem, but it requires some adapting.
Adonit Jot Touch with Pixelpoint ( white)
Nicely balanced, comfortable and well-designed, the Adonit Jot Touch is an excellent pressure-sensitive stylus for the iPad.
Seek Thermal Camera ( Android)
Best for DIYers and outdoor enthusiasts, Seek Thermal is a steep investment that pays off with its versatility.
Sony Smartwatch 3 ( lime)
Although its ability to use GPS to track your run is handy, its poor screen, uninspiring design and lack of a heart-rate monitor means the SmartWatch 3 doesn't impress over its more luxurious Android Wear competitors.
Samsung Gear VR
The Gear VR Innovator Edition is a cool -- and very promising -- entry ticket for early adopters looking for an affordable taste of virtual reality.
Typo2 for iPhone 6
The $99 Typo Keyboard case adds a credible physical keyboard to the iPhone 6, but losing access Touch ID sensor makes it a tough trade-off.
Microsoft Band ( large)
Microsoft Band is an ambitious first crack at a smart health wearable that throws in a ton of features and cross-platform support, but it's just not as easy to use or as functional as it should be.
LG G Watch R
Although its stark design and beautiful face makes this the first smartwatch you might actually be happy to be seen wearing, its Android Wear software has a long way to go before it's anything more than a passing novelty.
Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus 2
The Wacom Creative Stylus 2 is a great, well-priced pressure-sensitive stylus for iPad artistes.
Wacom Bamboo Stylus Fineline
It's a great stylus for annotating and sketching, but you might find the Wacom Bamboo Stylus Fineline a little harder to use for long stretches of writing or printing.
Intelligent Energy Upp Starter Kit
We'd love to recommend this innovative technology, but at this early stage the Upp fuel cell charger is just too cumbersome and too expensive.
Pricing not available
LG G Watch ( black titan)
The LG G Watch attempts to bring you the future on your wrist, but with its generic design, unimpressive battery life, and unpolished early software, you're better off waiting to see what else is around the bend.
Samsung Gear Live ( black)
Samsung's new smartwatch feels like its other Gears, but injected with Google's new Android Wear software. The makeover means better Google phone connectedness, but it's not a killer smartwatch.
Adobe Ink and Slide
Adobe Ink is a very nice stylus, though $200 is a heavy burden to lay on the entire package's slight shoulders, and the apps are solid if not spectacular.
Samsung Gear 2 Neo ( Black)
The Gear 2 Neo offers the best balance of features and price among Samsung's three 2014 smartwatches, but it falls short of must-have status.
Tylt Energi 10K ( blue)
The Tylt Energi 10K's beefy capacity, simple design, and a great price make it an excellent choice for anyone needing power on the go.
Metronome by MetroMile
Metronome offers a limited set of features for tracking fuel economy in your car that are wrapped in a nice design, but most of all, it's hard to argue with free.
Pad & Quill Sleeve for MacBook Pro/Air 13-inch ( olive/chocolate)
Thickly padded, and handmade from premium materials, the Pad & Quill Sleeve for MacBook will fit your 13-inch Air or Pro and fills an important need if you don't want to use a dedicated, padded laptop bag.
Garmin Head-Up Display ( HUD)
The Garmin HUD boosts safety and helps keep eyes on the road, but the cost of entry will likely dissuade most drivers.
GoGroove BlueGate Bluetooth Audio Receiver
The GoGroove BlueGate is a good option if you want to add Bluetooth audio streaming to a car or home audio system, but portable-headphone users will want to look for a more flexible unit.
RoboReel Portable Power Cord System
The RoboReel is one of the most advanced and manageable extension cords around, but this heavy-duty system comes with a heavy-duty price.
Ergotech VersaStand for iPad
Portable, flexible, and very useful all describe the VersaStand for the iPad, one of the best iPad desk accessories we've ever seen.
GoGroove SmartMini Aux
For cars with an auxiliary input but no native Bluetooth, the GoGroove SmartMini Aux is an effective means of adding both hands-free call capability and audio streaming from a smartphone.
