#1 Gillette Heated Razor
Gillette’s innovation branch debuted this heated razor for an Indiegogo campaign last year, and it was wildly popular—probably because a razor that mimics the barbershop treatment without tacking on more blades sounds pretty nice. In less than a second, the razor heats up to 122 degrees, warming soap and skin for an upgraded shave.
#2 LG Signature OLED TV R9
This television isn’t tiny; it’s just rolled up. LG showed off its new, disappearing OLED TV, with a screen that can stretch to 65 inches and then roll into a compact box, at CES, setting a launch date for the second half of 2019. There’s no price yet, but you’ll get a 4K HDR Smart TV-watching experience like none before it, with Google Assistant and Alexa. That, plus a decluttered view.
#3 Withings Move Activity Tracking Watch
Withings Move, the new smartwatch from Withings, monitors your activity and your sleep. It has a GPS tracker and syncs with the Health Mate app. It only costs $69.95. Most impressively, it works for 18 months without requiring a battery charge. That, and its understated design with the analog clock face is more timeless than a lot of trackers on the market.
#4 MoodoGo Portable Diffuser
Moodo makes aroma diffusers for the home that can be personalized thanks to four interchangeable scent capsules and smart technology. Now, Moodo has introduced the MoodoGo device, which is easy to cart around; all you need is a USB power supply for it to start dispensing good smells. The MoodoGo only holds one scent capsule, but it’s a perfect fit for car cupholders and cramped desk spaces.
#5 Nreal Light Mixed Reality Glasses
Mixed reality glasses can be used to take what you’re seeing of the real world and overlay it with virtual content. At CES 2019, Nreal, a Chinese start-up, showed off a pair that almost looks like normal glasses you could wear on the street. Hey, it’s a step in the right direction. Nreal’s ready-to-wear Light glasses are designed to give wearers an immersive experience with spatial sound, voice control, and a widescreen display at 1080p—without the bulky headset.
#6 Mophie Juice Pack Access
This is one of the most practical gadgets to come out of CES: a portable charging case for Apple iPhones that doesn’t use or cover up the Lightning port. Meaning, you can charge your phone while listening to headphones. Mophie’s Juice Pack Access gets its power from any Qi wireless charging pad or its included charging cable, giving you up to 31 hours of battery life. And despite its sleek design, it’s strong enough to protect your phone. It fits Xs Max, Xs/X, and XR iPhones.
#7 Lenovo Smart Clock with Google Assistant
We’re no strangers to interactive screens in the home, between Facebook Portals and Amazon Echos and Google Hubs. The beauty of Lenovo’s new Smart Clock, then, is its simplicity. It won’t video conference or stream TV, but it covers all the other bedside bases: it tells times, charges phones, and gently wakes you up with a clock face that gradually brightens before your alarm goes off. By connecting it to Google Assistant, you can instruct it to do a whole lot more.
