The Nexus 6 Naked Tough Case, which we are essentially accepting as an official accessory since it is being sold through Google Play, is now available for purchase. The transparent case can be had for $35 and is at least one way to keep your whale protected, assuming you have had the opportunity to buy one.
The case is “dual-layered” to offer a smooth, transparent finish, but also has chrome buttons to “complete the polished look.” It should provide some form of protection with its “impact resistant hard shell,” yet will keep your Nexus design shining through. The Naked Tough Case also has a kickstand, so that you can consume movies or other media without tiring your hand (trust me, it will tire). (more…)
Motorola finally made the metal band versions of the Moto 360 available yesterday through their online shop for $299. We were under the impression that when that move happened, early adopters of the Moto 360 would also be able to buy individual watch bands in either metal or different leathers. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, even though Motorola once again mentioned the fact that they planned to sell individual bands at some point in the near future.
Well, guess what? AT&T has them available right now, at suggested retail prices of $80 (metal) and $30 (leather). That’s right, if you want a replacement watch band for your Moto 360, AT&T will sell you one or two or three today in a variety of colors today. (more…)
Huawei announced yesterday evening that its TalkBand fitness tracker would go on sale here in the US on November 14, priced at $129.99. The device comes in a variety of colors, but does not offer a ton of killer features, limited to being solely a basic tracker of sorts. (more…)
Two upcoming accessories for the Nexus 6 are now marked as “coming soon” on Google Play, a stand folio case and naked see-thru case. Both cases can act as a stand for the device, and the folio case is also capable of holding a couple of credit cards if you choose that is a good move. (more…)
As we mentioned earlier, thanks to prematurely posted announcement from Motorola, the Moto 360 in metal was due to be released at some point today. Well, that time is now. You can head over to Motorola’s store and purchase the Moto 360 in dark or light metal for $299.
The smaller 18mm models are listed, but they won’t be available until closer to the holiday season.
We are still on the lookout for individual bands in metal and leather. (more…)
Battery packs are awesome and an accessory that I always tell people to consider buying when they are on sale. You can keep them in the bottom of a bag, in the glove box of your car, or on your coffee table for those times on the couch where you need extra battery juice but don’t have an outlet near by. You just never know when you might be away from an outlet for an extended period of time with a quickly dying battery that needs to last another couple of hours.
The BookMark Battery is the latest to go on sale in our Deals store. It’s an incredibly thin (4.7mm) 2,500mAh battery pack that will give most phones an entire charge before it needs replenishing. It has a touch indicator to show how much power it has left, comes in either black or white, and was designed to fit perfectly into a pocket, even a pant pocket. It inputs at 5v-1000mA, outputs at 5v-500mA, and has a cycle life of 500 charges.
At $34.99 (regularly $60), this is a solid deal for those who need some backup power.
TYLT makes just about every charging accessory imaginable, but there are two categories the manufacturer had not tried its hand at – car chargers and power mats. That is changing today with the debut of the VÜ CAR and VÜ SOLO. (more…)
This morning, Amazon announced a new Fire TV product that aims to compete with Google’s Chromecast, called the Fire TV Stick. The device sports a dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, MIMO WiFi, and double the storage of the Chromecast, while still maintaining that same smallish dongle design that plugs directly into an HDMI port on the back of your TV. It also comes with a remote and companion app for navigation.
The Fire TV Stick is available for pre-order today and will ship November 19. It retails for $39, but if you are an Amazon Prime member, you can pick one up over the next 2 days for $19. (more…)
