The holiday season is behind us, but maybe you didn't get that LG Watch Urbane you were hoping for. Hey, it's understandable. Not everyone wants to shill out several hundred dollars for a gift. Fortunately you're a working adult, and you can afford to buy your own expensive wrist accessories.
Amazon offered the LG Watch Urbane for $199.69 as part of a lightning deal last month, but now that price has risen back up to $259. You may prefer the former price, and so do we. That's why it's worth checking eBay. Read More
Ingress players are a special breed. They're willing to take their phones out in public and walk around staring at their phones. Okay, maybe they're not all that different from other Android gamers after all. Nonetheless, their game of choice requires they go out and explore, and that means running the risk of a dead battery.
Cheero made a battery specifically for Ingress players, and it has been officially licensed by the game's creator, Niantic Labs. Read More

The ZTE brand may not be the first that comes to mind when you consider high-end phones, but the Axon Pro is quite the beast. You get a 1440p 5-inch screen, Snapdragon 810, 4GB of RAM, and, thanks to a recent over-the-air update, Android Marshmallow. You also get to save money. Read More
Android Wear and Apple Watch may have the headlines, but they're not the only two smartwatch players in town. Back before either showed up to the party, a small team broke Kickstarter records to create an intelligent wristwatch with an e-ink display. A few years later, they did it again, except this time, in color.
That second campaign gave rise to the Pebble Time, an updated model with an improved, colorful screen and a smarter interface. The watch has an MSRP of $199.99, but the general street price is closer to $150. Still, you might want to turn your eye toward Groupon. Read More
Stop me if you've heard this before, but there's a chance that connecting things to the Internet can make them more convenient to use. I know, it's quite the idea.
Gadget makers are already turning that idea into a product you can buy. Take the stuff SmartThings makes. "Smart" outlets let you toggle things that you plug into the wall, such as lamps and fans. And that's hardly all. A single hub controls everything, and you can interact with that device using your smartphone. Read More
