With a 3cm by 3cm side profile and measuring 6cm long, the Innergie PowerGear 60C is the world's smallest 60W laptop adapter, according to its maker.

It is lightweight too, weighing just 85g, but is capable of charging USB-C mobile devices from the Nintendo Switch to the Apple MacBook Pro via its bundled USB-C cable. Three travel power plugs are included, so you can use it whether you are travelling to the United States, Britain or Europe.

To use it with laptops that do not support USB-C charging, you can buy the optional MagiCable 150 ($29) USB-C cable, which comes with six interchangeable tips that are compatible with various brands of laptops .

A 1.8-inch display makes it easy to read workout data. It also provides easy-to-read course prompts with audible turn cues. When paired with a smartphone, the Edge 130 displays current and forecasted weather conditions. It even issues weather alerts to help keep users from getting stuck in a downpour.

The B&O Play Earset is a refresh of a 1990s model of the same name. This pair of in-ear headphones comes with Bluetooth wireless technology while preserving design aspects of the original.

Each earbud comes with a 14.2mm speaker unit with a neodymium magnet, while the cabinet behind the speaker unit has two acoustic vents and a bass port to optimise sound performance. It has a rated battery life of five hours.
