If you read articles on GadgetMatch.com, watch our videos on YouTube, or are always on our Facebook page – you’re probably no stranger to our Holiday Scavenger Hunt where we’ve been giving away one smartphone every week and will continue to do so until the first week of 2017.
What if we told you we aren’t done yet!
Yep! On December 23rd when we announce the winner of the Week 5’s prize the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, we will also be giving away $1500 worth of gadgets and gizmos – including some favorites from our Holiday Gift Guide.
When we began this project, we sought out to feature products that we would not only pick out for those dearest to us, but also gadgets we would love to receive ourselves. And we spent hours shopping, both online and offline.
Everything featured below was hand picked by someone from the GadgetMatch team. And we’re thrilled to be giving away at least one of everything during our Christmas Facebook special on December 23rd.
To be eligible to win you need to:
- Read about each of the products/brands below
- Like each of their Facebook pages (click the like buttons)
- Share this page on Facebook tagging 3 of your friends (share button is at the bottom of this page)
- And filling up the form with your name, email and country. (look for the blue entry form button below)
We love it when people come up with innovative ways to solve today’s problems. Phone cases are meant to save phones from accidental drops. But what if there was something that could save your phone from being dropped in the first place? Enter Ungrip – a strap for your phone that gives you a more secure way of holding onto it. We’ve been using it for a few months now and we haven’t dropped our phone yet!
Nomad Battery Wallet
The holy grail of smartphone design is a battery that can last a full day of heavy use. Until that’s achieved though we pretty much stuck with lugging around power banks. That’s why we think the Nomad Leather battery wallet is an amazing idea – made of genuine leather, these wallets come with a built in power bank and lightning cable. The slim model (featured above) has enough power to fully charge a dead iPhone, has 4 credit card slots, a storage pouch, and RFID blocking technology to protect you from high tech identity theft.
When we found them online, we immediately fell in love with Native Union’s entire product line. This is a brand that values design and function and its pretty evident in their lineup of iPhone accessories. Take for example their Night Cable; 3 meters long so you can use in bed, made of braided nylon that’s much more durable than the one Apple makes, and with a weighted knot designed to prevent it from dropping to the floor. They have iPhone cases made of a beautiful selection of materials – marble, wood, and leather. And a lightning cable built into a leather tag that’s so luxurious it would look good even on a Birkin.
We first found out about Nillkin while shopping for smartphone cases, we especially love the texture finish of their frosted shield cases, which they make for a wide range of smartphone models (not just iPhones and Galaxy S7s). They make other accessories too including their upcoming PlayVox bluetooth speakers. While bluetooth speakers are pretty common we liked these because they’re rugged, ultra portable, waterproof, and have NFC built-in for one tap pairing.
One of our favorite gadget stores in the Philippines, we love that Digital Walker is a one stop shop for thoughtfully curated tech from around the world. Apart from Native Union and Nomad accessories, they also sell Sphero’s Sprk+ – the perfect starter kit for kids wanting to get into programming and robotics; Jaybird Freedom Wireless – one of our favorite sports headphones in terms of build and audio quality; GameVice – console style controllers for your iPhone or iPad; and Ye!! Stellar+ which are bluetooth speakers that double as night lights.

9 Reasons to gift the 1MORE Colorbuds 2 this holiday season
Bang for the buck ANC earphones
Two months ago we unboxed and checked out the 1MORE Colorbuds 2. They’re a pair of true wireless earphones that offer so much bang for your buck.
So much so that when 1MORE asked if we could do a follow up for the holidays, we said sure!
We could easily name 9 reasons to gift it to someone special or to yourself.
1. Value for Money
For under $100, the 1MORE ColorBuds 2 offer so many features exclusive to more expensive wireless earbuds.
You get active noise cancelling, transparency mode, fast charging, wireless charging, and so much more at just $79.99.
And if you’re feeling lucky, you can win a pair just by joining our giveaway:
2. Active Noise Cancelling
The 1MORE ColorBuds 2 offers two listening modes: Active Noise Cancellation and Pass Through.
It’s easy to get lost in your own world when you have ANC on, which is helpful when you’re on the subway and want to get things done despite everything that’s going on.
Pass through is great for when you’re biking or running or just doing errands and just want your very own soundtrack to your life.
Also, for the best noise cancellation you need a good seal. The ColorBuds 2 ship with three different sized foam tips so you can get a good fit.
3. IPX5 Rating
Speaking of fit, the ColorBuds 2 stay in my ears through my runs, where I end up sweating a lot.
But no worries, these buds have an IPX5 water resistance rating.
So unless you intend on spraying them with a nozzle, the Colorbuds 2 will still work despite the sweat from your most rigorous workouts.
The 1More Colorbuds 2 come in a small charging case. That’s because the Colorbuds 2 themselves are pretty small compared to your average in-ear noise-cancelling earphones.
So for users with small ear canals who struggle finding earphones that fit, this pair is something you’d want to check out.
Because of its size and pebble-like shape the case is so easy to bring just about anywhere: pop it into the pocket of your shorts or your purse with your other essentials.
5. Long Battery Life
What’s small that lasts long? Yep, the ColorBuds 2.
Unless you don’t sleep every night, you probably won’t find yourself in a scenario where you’ll be using your earbuds the whole day. In case you do, with its case, the 1More ColorBuds 2 offer a total of 24 hours of battery life when not using active noise cancellation and up to 18 hours with ANC enabled.
That’s more than long enough to last through your commute, the entire work day, and even a workout.
6. Fast Charging
Probably even more impressive than its long battery life is the ColorBuds 2’s fast charging feature.
With only a 15 minute charge, the ColorBuds2 can deliver two hours of playback.
7. Wireless Charging
I’m all for fast wired charging through and through but wireless charging support is great, too.
I love that I can just plop down the ColorBuds 2’s case on any of my wireless chargers.
If you own a phone that supports reverse wireless charging like the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, you can charge the case on the back of your phone, too!
8. Sound ID
Despite its size and price, the ColorBuds 2 is packed with technology that makes listening to music an even more enjoyable experience than usual.
Together with award-winning audio technology company Sonarworks, 1MORE integrated Sound ID into the 1MORE music app.
With it, you can tune the sound coming from the earbuds depending on your preference.
So whether you want more bass or higher treble, you can customize your settings on the 1MORE music app through a quick in-app test.
A little fun fact: SoundID is based on the same tech used to record music in over 70,000 recording studios around the world.
It’s also the same tech used to record the music of some of popular artists like Lady Gaga and Adele.
9. Color Options
Apart from personalized sound, you also get three color options to suit your style.
There’s Midnight Black, which is a nice classic color. There’s Frost White for those who like it clean and pristine. Lastly, there’s Twilight Gold, which is another neutral color that’s just a little bit more chic.
Those were 9 reasons you should get the 1MORE ColorBuds 2 this holiday season.
If you want to try your luck, don’t forget to join our giveaway! We are giving away three pairs so you can win a one for yourself or for your loved one.
