Coin

In this day and age, nobody carries cash anymore.  The preferred currency is plastic, and we tend to have a lot of it. Between bank cards, credit cards, gift cards and store specific cards it’s hard to keep track of them all. Coin is a connected device that can store and work like all the cards you currently carry.  Now you can leave your cards safely at home. With Coin you can select between cards with the button on the device.  Only the last four digits of the card will show on the digital display.  Coin can be swiped just like any other credit card, and can hold up to eight different cards. If Coin is separated from your phone, at a certain distance you will receive a notification.  The future is now, and it’s time to get rid of all that extra wallet bulk.

SwitchEasy Tanks Battery Pack

Product shot #1 of Colors

When we’re on the go, outdoors, or otherwise away from a power source for an extended period of time we tend to get a bit of range anxiety, never straying too far from power grid connectivity.  With Tanks from SwitchEasy, those days are over.  Tanks packs a whopping 6,000mAh capacity, four times the power retention of a typical smartphone. With a powerful 2.1Amp USB fast charge, Tanks will get your device back up and running quickly. A crisp four step white LED lets you know exactly what’s left in the tank. Despite its capacity, Tanks is remarkably compact, measuring in at 55 x 84 x 33mm. The design is reminiscent of a scuba air tank, which is fitting considering its function. Buy ($70)

Sennheiser PMX 685i SPORTS

The new PMX 685i SPORTS headphones from Sennheiser are exactly what we’ve been looking for to step up our running game.  Running is not the easiest of physical activities, and those that are not in love with the sport can always use a bit of motivation.  Music is a great way to kick oneself into gear and get moving. The problem is most headphones are not designed for running and are either uncomfortable or fall out.  The ones that are made for sports usually sacrifice sound quality for a more athletic design.  The high-output drivers in the PMX SPORTS serve up a healthy dose of natural stereo sound while the in-ear design functions to keep your situational awareness of your surroundings in check. The 685i are comfortable, sweat and water resistant neckband style headphones that are rugged and durable. They can be rinsed off under the faucet to remove grime and perspiration. The monocoque design ensures that the phones will not fall off during activity, something earbuds are notorious for.  Buy($62)
