We’re live from Las Vegas this week as we scout the latest in luxury tech from the world’s largest technology showcase, #CES2015.
If there’s one thing we’re grateful for this week, it’s our beloved Prada flats for leaving us blister-free and our iPhone 6 Plus, which has maintained enough battery life to get us through tweet, text and photo-filled days without a re-charge.
But, we digress.
Here’s what Day Two at #CES2015 brought:
Wearables, Wearables, Wearables
We looked at wearable devices until our heads spun. We love Jawbone’s new UP MOVE, a $49.99 “introductory” version of their classic product. It’s not as pretty os their UP3, the new bracelet-like version of their device, or the Misfit, which sparkles thanks to a partnership with Swarovski, but it’s still a great budget device to track your health.
Some of the coolest products for health weren’t wearable at all — we loved HugOne, a sleep tracker for the whole family that works by putting a small square device under the mattress.
So. Many. TVs.
Ultra HD is the new standard for television, and it looks fantastic, particularly on huge screens. Major brands like Panasonic and Samsung showed off their massive, curved screens, multi-dimensional abilities and cool features like screens that automatically optimize images for better contrast and color. The price points on these babies are still very high, but we look forward to their mass-market production in a year or so.
The insta-print brand is better than ever with new cubes for video production and instant printers. We can totally see having a blast at a wedding or party with these DIY print makers.
We mentioned dogs yesterday, but animal health still tops our list for one of our favorite types of products hitting it big at CES. We particularly loved the fashion-forward WonderWoof, a $99 bow-tie collar clip for dogs that tracks health and activity.
For the first time this year, CES launched a special space for brands, marketers and advertisers to connect. We predict this area, which already saw headliners like Google, Yahoo! and Twitter speak, will grow even bigger next year. We only wish it wasn’t down at Aria, which is far from the rest of the conference.
