Best portable Apple Watch chargers for travel

Despite all of the advances that Apple Watch has made in recent years, its battery life is still less-than-stellar when compared to some other fitness trackers on the market today. Add in a heavy LTE workload, and that becomes even more apparent.

Adding a wall charger or USB battery pack to your arsenal can help, but you’ll still need to carry an Apple Watch charging puck. The simplest way to remedy your low-battery notification blues is to add a portable charger with everything integrated into one product. Head below for the best portable Apple Watch chargers.

Hands-on: Alpine’s HALO9 CarPlay/Android Auto receiver offers a unique & premium experience

When it comes to car infotainment systems, stock units are rarely good. For years, you had regular knobs, buttons, and small screens to show you what radio station or CD track you were listening to. Fast forward to today and companies are building GPS into car radios, though the interface is never pretty, and they often feel difficult to navigate.

Alpine, an industry leader, has always produced solid car receivers, and recently has been stepping its game up with better interfaces, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and more with its offerings. The latest head unit from Alpine, dubbed the iLX-F309 HALO9, is one of the nicest I’ve ever had the pleasure of using, with a capacitive 9-inch touchscreen, built-in light sensor for dimming, dedicated GPS antenna, and more. This car radio has it all.

Amazon Fire TV Cube Review: The promise of a voice-controlled future not yet delivered

At the beginning of the month, Amazon announced the new $119 Fire TV Cube, a hybrid Echo device and streaming media player that promises a glimpse into the future of content consumption. As set-top boxes from Apple, Roku and now Amazon have grown in popularity over the last few years, two key issues have repeatedly popped up for viewers. How to best manage an overflowing chest of content and the headache that comes with multiple remotes.

Fire TV Cube looks to cure that with an all-in-one solution centered around its Alexa voice platform. In our hands-on testing, it delivered as a means for sorting through content but fell short as an intuitive hub for home theaters. The potential is there, but don’t count on it changing the game just yet.
