IONIQ is a smart way to spray your sunblock

Say goodbye to sunburns!



Imagine a device that will spray your sunblock evenly, even in hard-to-reach areas. Imagine having great UV protection without making a mess with your lotion-y hands upon application. This is what IONIQ promises to do.

I’m sure it’s happened to you: A day out in the beautiful sun only to be greeted by nasty sunburn the next day. More often than not, these burns are brought about by uneven sunscreen application. This nifty device helps with that.

The IONIQ is actually a sunblock application bottle. But, it’s not that simple. IONIQ’s magnetic skin technology means that with a press of a button, the sunblock will spray onto your skin and spread evenly across the surface without the need to spread it. Basically, it’s a surefire way to ensure you get sunblock everywhere without even needing an extra hand (pun intended).

The sunburn deterrent features do not stop there. In the future, additional features will include a phone app that will connect to the IONIQ device which can come up with digital skin diagnosis and provide constant reminders for sunblock reapplication.

Of course, we’ll see all this for the first time at CES 2019 where a number of products will be launched for the first time: The IONIQ One sprayer, different sunscreen cartridges with different SPFs, moisturizer cartridges, self-tanner cartridges, and even mosquito repellent cartridges.

If you’re curious about how you can get your hands on this, the official launch is slated for May and the devices will be available on their website and other digital platforms.


Fit and Fun with the Huawei Watch GT 3

Powered by HarmonyOS



Watch GT 3

The idea of getting fit isn’t always fun for everyone. And there’s no single approach that will work for everybody. So, just as you have your own fitness plan. It’s cool to have your own personal fitness companion. In this case, the Huawei Watch GT3 series. 

It comes in two sizes — 46mm and 42mm. And each size has 3 different looks. But no matter which one you choose, they’re all equipped with the same health and fitness features you’ll want and need for your workouts.

Learning your stats

So, how do we make getting fit, personalized and fun? It starts with knowing the “STATS” you need to change. For the purposes of this video we’re looking the following key stats: Height, Weight, Strength, Charm, Vitality, Endurance, and Dexterity.

It’s all arbitrary, but should be useful in each of our subjects (players?) fitness journey. Let’s take a look at them and their stats.

Subject number one has plenty to work on. He needs to balance his weight with his height, improve his endurance, and add to his charm and dexterity in the process.

Subject number two is looking to boost strength, and build on the rest of the stats.

While subject number three is all about maintaining the stats she’s already built.

Different people with different fitness needs. But all can be addressed with the aid of the Huawei Watch GT3 series.

Workout and monitoring

Now that each subject knows their stats and how they want to adjust them. It’s time to plan the work.

The key metrics to look at are activity data, heart rate, stress levels, SpO2 and sleep. Luckily, these can all be tracked with the Huawei Watch GT3. Over time, the records will be logged and can be monitored on the Huawei Health app.

Subject number one

Subject number one has the most to work on. Bringing down his weight will go a long way to adding to his charm and vitality. But to do this he has to build endurance. This takes a lot… and we mean a lot… of cardio.

Subject number one needs to workout hard to gradually adjust his stats. But he also needs to watch his heart rate.

The Huawei Watch GT3 is better than ever at this with the TruSeen 5.0+ tech. Its PPG module has lower power consumption and higher performance for a more accurate data return.

The same tech also brings oxygen levels from single test to all day monitoring. This provides a better, real-time picture of your body’s status. These are key to knowing whether you’re a little too lax or overexerting.

Fitness goals need time, effort, and discipline. You can’t be hitting nitro one day only to not even be able to turn your engine on the following day. Moderation and perseverance are key.

Subject number two

Next is subject number two. To build strength, he is looking at a different type of workout. Luckily the Huawei Watch GT3 can track over a hundred different types.

He’s going to do a lot of body weight training. Any of these trackable workouts will fit his goal. For the rest of his stats, it’s all about gradually building them. This means having a good quality of sleep which can be easily tracked. As well as monitoring his heart rate and breathing to make sure they’re all at normal levels.

Subject number three

Meanwhile, subject number three is pretty satisfied with where she’s at. It’s all about maintenance. This means a lighter workload, breathing exercises, and steady monitoring.

All these monitoring can put a strain on any smartwatch. Thankfully, under certain conditions, the Huawei Watch GT3 can last up to 14 days on a single charge. If you’re a really heavy user, that might be cut down to around 7 to 10 which is still nothing to scoff at.

Go out and style

The Huawei Watch GT 3 can make you look good in more ways than one.

Other than helping you achieve your body goals, the Huawei Watch GT 3 can easily transform from a workout gear to something sleek that you can wear literally anywhere.

The 46mm version comes in this leather strap that can be worn in casual excursions or even fancy dates. The same can be said for either the leather or milanese edition of the 42mm version.

It also doesn’t hurt that the Watch GT3 series feels so much lighter than its predecessor. No strain on your wrist whatsoever.

The Huawei Watch GT3 was carefully crafted to function smartly but with the look of a traditional time piece. It’s a delicate balance that Huawei treads with fine precision. Giving us a pair of smartwatches that’s great for any and every occasion.

Watch your health, watch your life

The Huawei Watch GT 3 is the perfect step up from your run-of-the-mill fitness bands. It has plenty of workout features to choose from some pretty snazzy watchfaces, a boatload of health monitoring to keep track of your progress, and a look that works for any occasion. It’s a smartwatch that’s made both for fit and fun!

Check it out on the Huawei Online Store.

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:

GadgetMatch x 1MORE Comfobuds Pro 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.

4. Pocketable

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.

The Razer Phone Cooler Chroma can cool your phones while gaming

Already out now



For the past few years, Razer has expanded its product lineup towards more lifestyle products, briefly exploring new frontiers away from its original peripheral niche. Amid all the news for wacky new devices from the gaming brand, Razer has released something both new and a return to its old gaming roots. The brand has launched the Razer Phone Cooler Chroma, a cooling fan for mobile gamers.

It will come in a MagSafe and a clamp variant. As the name of the earlier variant indicates, the MagSafe cooling fan will work with the iPhone 12 and 13 series. It will snap firmly with the iPhone’s MagSafe magnetic system. Meanwhile, the clamp variant will attach to phones using a manual clamp.

When attached, the seven-blade fan will cool the phone for extensive gaming sessions. Despite the power hidden beneath the blades, the device operates at a capable 30dB. As you might expect from Razer, the cooling fan does have RGB lighting.

Unfortunately, if you’re more of an on-the-go gamer, the MagSafe cooling fan isn’t making it easy for users. The device will still need a USB-C power charger plugged in. Ultimately, the cooling fan might be more trouble than it’s worth. If anything, it might make your Genshin Impact sessions more snazzy.

The Razer Phone Cooler Chroma is available now for only US$ 60.
