Withings Activite Analog Smartwatch - Activite White And Whitching Activite Black Versions
The word Smartwatch is widely associated to big colorful screens attached to large wrist bands, full inter-connectivity with smartphones, tablets and everything else around, notifications, calls, SMS, social media, Bluetooth and so on…

Well, Withings, the health smart devices company behind the Pulse Fitness Gadget and the Blood Pressure Monitor we featured earlier, has a different take on how a Smartwatch should look an work. Their latest health gadget, the Withing Activite, is designed to look like a classic analog watch. But don’t be fooled by its classy looks! The Activite packs a lot of technology and sensors in its fancy body! The Activite can measure distance you run, walk or swim, can analyses sleep quality and count calories burned during the day. While the sensors which track and analyze the information are located in the wristwatch, the information reading, report analysis and sensors setup is done via the Withings Health Mate app available for PC, iPad and iPhone.

The Withings Activite smartwatch is designed in Paris and manufactured in Switzerland (that’s what explains its cool looks!!!), is equipped with morning alarm, automatic time zone switcher (so you no longer have to set time when traveling around the world) and is powered by a battery which lasts for 1 full year of usage! Available as of August 2014.

Earin - The Invisible Wireless Earbuds
There’s one thing I always hated about modern technology: it comes with a lot of wires! Don’t get me wrong, I am happy I live in the 21st century and I have access to things no one even imagined 40-50 years ago! Wires are a decent price to pay to get access to all this technological marvels! But I still hate them!!!

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and wireless charging made my life a bit easier, and I am looking forward for new technological advancements that will allow replacing all the remaining cords and cables around the house.

ALSO CHECK the Sony All-In-One – Headphones, MP3 Player & Loudspeakers Via Walkman WH Series, AfterShokz Bluez 2 Bluetooth Bone Conduction Headphones and the Phiaton Chord MS 530 Wireless Headphones

The Earin earphones are another step in this direction. The wireless earbuds are small enough to be titled as “Almost Invisible” (check the pics), connect to each other and to the player via Bluetooth and have a battery life of abound 3 hours on a full charge. The Earin earbuds have an incredible low weight of 0.17oz (5 grams) each and come with a charging capsule (weights around 0.88 oz – 25 grams) which doubles their play time. The charging capsule also serves as storage, so your earbuds are safe when not in use, and it was designed as a compact keychain for maximum portability.
The Earin buds are compatible with iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Mobile devices, Windows and Apple laptops and tablets, basically any gadgets that works on Bluetooth 3.0 and Bluetooth 4.0 protocols.

The Earin wireless earbuds are in project stage at Kickstarter and you can secure a pair for an early bird price of $202 US (retail price will be around $253 US). The project already reached its funding cap (it raised 506,916 GBP – that’s x3 more than what was expected) and the delivery is scheduled for January 2015.

Breffo Spiderpodium Universal Smartphone Holder - Car Mount On Ventilation System
A while back we featured the Spiderpodium smartphone holder here on CoolPile.com.
Now we’re back with a full hands-on review, a lot of pictures, a complete review Youtube video as well as with some new thoughts about what is deemed to be one of the most versatile smartphone stands and car holders out there.

First, the Spiderpodium is a bit bigger than I expected based on the pictures I checked on the Breffo.com website. And this is good news, because it offers an even better grip and I was hoping! The smartphone holder sports 8 legs covered in a rubbish material which serve both securing the phone as well as positioning the Spiderpodium on almost any type of surface. The smartphone holder works with all phones up to 5″ including iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S series, LG G series and any other maker/model on the market (if you own a phablet or a tablet, Breffo also has a bigger version of the Spiderpodium available to accommodate your needs), works with GPS units, digital and action cameras, flashlights … you name it!

Salutoo iPhone Sticky Skins And Cases
Salutoo, the German company behind the cool adhesive smartphone skins and cases, just released their latest case collection (SM)ARTPHONE by Salutoo!
Build in collaboration famous artists such as French Graffitti drawer Shuck One, NY based Chris Uphues, California’s David Choate and at last but not the least Mark Kessell, the Salutoo-Art collection brings the world of art into the geeky world of smartphones.

Just as the regular Salutoo skins, the new collection features the same ingenious quality epoxy build which confers your smartphone sticky capabilities. You can easily stick your phone to the bathroom ceramics or mirror, to your car dashboard, to your PC screen’s frame, your fridge or any other flat surface around.

The Salutoo skins are available for various models such as iPhone 4 and 5 series, Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4 and even for iPad Mini, come in a range of vibrant models and colors (some of the pictured above) and are available for purchase on Amazon.

Check out the attached video for a hands-on review where I also mount one of the skins on an iPhone 5. Although this was the first time I ever mounted a such skin on a phone and the iPhone also had a screen protector (which did not help my effort!), the entire action took less than two minutes. Another cool thing about the Salutoo skins (which also helped my effort!) is the fact that the skins can be removed as easily as they can be applied.
In the end, if you’re not into mingling with the skins to perfectly apply them on your iPhone, Salutoo also offers classic iPhone cases with the same impressive designs and functionality.

Check the post for more pics and a Youtube video review of the Salutoo cases and skins.
