We picked out a number of gadgets and tech-related items in this sweet shade because why not? You gotta admit: Everything looks better in the coming year’s new color highlight.

Silicone Case in Ultra Violet

If your phone can’t be Ultra Violet (because there aren’t many phones in that color which is something that someone needs to get on, TBH), then fix it with an Ultra Violet case!

Pantone accessories are here to complement your style!

We want ’em all!

Over the years, Pantone has grown as an authority and standard for colors. What was once a color guide for designers has become a part of contemporary culture. As people started identifying themselves through Pantone’s colored chips, manufacturers capitalized on this trend by incorporating Pantone into their products.

Through Pantone Universe licensing, manufacturers can apply Pantone’s branding and popular design. I’ve seen different applications, mostly on fashion and lifestyle accessories, but seeing it on computer peripherals and other electronics is a total treat.


Originally manufactured by DataPlus Supplies Inc., this Taiwanese company sells Pantone-licensed accessories that you’ll definitely buy to match your style.

For instance, they sell gaming accessories in different shades of blue. One of their best-looking is the teal-colored one, as it deviates from the usual blue and black combination used by gamers in their gaming setups.

You can also make a statement using these Pantone-colored USB fans and speakers when you’re traveling, especially in hot and humid countries. Fabulous, right?

For those who want to stay connected, stay away from the usual white and black power banks and get a Pantone-colored unit! There’s a rare chance of losing it compared to when you use a more generic power bank. And oh, they also have wireless chargers!

If you truly embrace Pantone’s branding, there’s a bag carrying the color guide’s popular design.

Lastly, there’s a whole line of computer accessories and electronics waiting for you. Pantone really found its way into our lives and yes, we want all of them!

Apple Watch comes with new updates: App Store, menstrual cycle tracking, and more

Apple is trying to make your life easier!

Published

on

Apple is now making lives easier as they unveiled the new watchOS 6 in WWDC 2019, bringing the App Store with promising apps, new watch faces, and expanded features.

App Store without your iPhone

With watchOS 6, you can use the App Store to browse, download, and install apps directly on your watch, without the need to download a paired app on your iPhone.


Additional updates are coming as well, such as the Apple Books for your audiobooks, Voice Memos, and the Calculator app, which has a unique feature allowing you to split bills and calculate how much tip you’ll give.

Better watch faces incoming

Apple introduced what they call “simply beautiful and richly detailed” watch faces. There’s a modular compact, a gradient watch face, an oversized numerical watch face available in multiple languages, a modern digital watch face in multiple colors, a California dial watch face, and Solar Dial.

Cycle Tracking and Dose

Over the years, the Apple Watch has introduced health- and fitness-related features which made the wearable a valuable piece that can even save lives. In 2019, two more health-focused apps are coming: Cycle Tracking, a menstrual tracking and women’s health monitoring app, and Dose, a pill reminder app.

Expanding more features

Activity Trends, a new feature for the Apple Watch, is here to show your fitness data to give you a picture of your daily activity and to compare how you’re doing for the past 90 days. It’s smart enough to give you advice on what to do if your performance is going down. Talk about having a coach through your wrist!

For those concerned about their hearing, the Noise app can measure the noise level in your area and notify you through your watch if the decibel level reaches 90, which begins to impact hearing according to the World Health Organization.

Fast forward to fall

Apple’s watchOS 6 will be available starting this fall in select iPhones running iOS 13 or later and up until the Apple Watch Series 1, but it won’t make its way to the original Apple Watch.
