The LG Watch Urbane is in the house! The premium Android Wear device from LG, which was first unveiled at MWC in February, is now available on the Google Store for a whopping $349, in case you were interested.
We picked one up to take it for a first spin and share some thoughts on the latest in smartwatches running Google’s wearables platform. With its premium stainless steel body and polished finish (in either silver or gold), along with a P-OLED display, water resistance, heart rate monitor, and genuine leather strap, this is arguably the best yet. Well, that all depends on your taste in watches, of course. The Moto 360, even after all these months, is still the best looking of the bunch, in my opinion. (more…)
The ExoMount Touch car mount has been slashed to just $19.99 in the DL Deals store. That’s roughly $10 off the full price or about $5 cheaper than you will find it at Amazon. That’s a solid deal for those of you looking at car mounts for your oversized smartphones.
Why the ExoMount Touch? It can mount to just about any surface (flat, smooth, textured, curved, or rounded) thanks to its super strong suction. Once attached to your dash or other surface, the ExoMount quickly grabs a hold of your phone without the need to press a button. All you have to do is press it against the mount and the non-slip arms/pads will grab it. To release, you need a finger to loosen its grab, giving you true 1-handed access to your phone.
The ExoMount is also washable, has a swivel head, and should work with just about any phone, including oversized big boys like the Note 3.

I know that you probably never envisioned your life being better with a box full of colored LED lights that light up into shapes or animations while also showing you notifications from your phone, but it could potentially happen with the Dotti Pixel-Art Smart Light, which is on sale in the DL Deals shop for $69.99. Or maybe you just want a cool accessory for your desk to play with during times of boredom. Whatever the case may be, the $10 discount only lasts for a couple more days.
The Dotti Pixel-Art Smart Light, as I just mentioned, is a box full of colored LED lights. That box connects to your phone via Bluetooth to show you notifications from your favorite apps as they come in. But you can also sync the lights to a clock, customize how notifications arrive, push through various icons and animations, and even watch the lights animate to music that is playing on your phone.
Again, it’s kind of cool even if it is a niche product or office accessory that not everyone needs.

The watch will reach AT&T stores on May 15. As of right now, we don’t know if or when it will arrive in Verizon stores. (more…)
Looking for a whole bunch of electronics to blow last Friday’s paycheck on? We’ve got you covered, thanks to a 2-day sale over at Groupon. By using coupon code “SALE3” at checkout, you can save 10% on your orders, up to $50 off. After cruising through their pages and pages of deals, we actually found a handful that are worth considering.
Items like the official Samsung Galaxy S6 wireless charger can be had for $35 (normally $50). The 1st gen Moto X on Verizon is also as cheap as $180 after the discount. But maybe the best deal of all, if you are in the market for home Hi-Fi speakers, is the discount on Sonos’ entire line-up. You can grab a Sonos Play:5 for just $342 (usually $399) or the Play:1 for $171 (usually $199). Sonos products are almost never discounted, and if they are, never to these levels.
There are other deals as well, all quick-linked below.
Again use code “SALE3” at checkout.
I can’t say that it has ever happened to me personally, but I can imagine that losing your luggage while traveling could quite possibly be the most frustrating thing on the planet, especially when you and the airport have no idea where your bag is at the moment you realize it has been lost. Trakdot is a product that attempts to alleviate this situation by tracking your bag at all times.
To work, the Trakdot is simply placed in your luggage and then paired with an app or browser. As you land, the device sends a notification to your phone to let you know its exact location, which hopefully is right underneath your seat in the luggage compartment of the plane. If it isn’t there, then you should at least be able to see its last whereabouts to help you and the airline track and recover it.
The Trakdot typically runs $50, but you need to pay $20 per year for its tracking service. With this deal, you get the Trakdot plus two years of service for $79.99. So basically, you are saving $10. Amazon reviewers seem to love it and have given it a 4.5+ score. (more…)
Now that our reviews of the Galaxy S6 (review) and Galaxy S6 Edge (review) are out of the way, it’s time to start thinking about life with each phone in the near future and beyond, and that means getting are hands on things like accessories to either add features and functionality to the phone or protect it. Since the S6 Edge is the most interesting of the two because of its dual-edge display, we wanted to start there. And since the folks at Spigen sent us over a boatload of cases for the device, we may as well show off theirs. (more…)
