Netatmo JUNE

“Smart” jewelry is one of the Next Big Things in consumer technology, while sun protection is everyone’s concern. Why not bring the two together? Netatmo does just that with JUNE, the first bracelet that measures your sun exposure and provides sun protection advice. JUNE tracks UV intensity in real time and the total sun absorbed by your skin throughout the day, while its iPhone app calculates the suggested maximum daily exposure and notifies you when to slather on the sun block, which SPF to use and when to take cover. Created by French jewelry designer Camille Toupet to resemble a diamond with glimmering facets, JUNE comes in gold, platinum or gunmetal. $99.

Bang & Olufsen Form 2i Headphones

Audiophile extraordinaire Bang & Olufsen updated and relaunched its iconic Form 2 headphones — part of the permanent collection of New York’s Museum of Modern Art — with new features including a microphone, a three-button remote and improved comfort, as well as a new name: Form 2i. Weighing barely more than 3 ounces, they’re ultra-light and stylish on-ear headphones with an impressive and honest stereo sound. And they still boast the spot-on sound profile upon which B&O has built its venerable brand: a combination of a good bass, a focused middle range and precise high-frequency tones. Available in six splashy colors. $129.

Host a Fabled Business Event in Wonderful Copenhagen

I imagine that when writer Hans Christian Andersen mused, “Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale,” he was standing at the edge of Copenhagen’s historic Tivoli Gardens, one of his favorite haunts, enlivened by the swirl of human happiness that surrounded him: children laughing; carousels spinning; games of chance played for prizes; lovers holding hands; hungry people whispering over sweets, hot drinks, beer and towering, open-faced smørrebrød, Denmark’s quintessential sandwich. That fairy tale lives on today at the second-oldest amusement park in the world, a spectacle of folly architecture, bakeries, gardens, rides, restaurants, puppet shows and joy ... and which also happens to be one of the city’s most storied places to convene for business.

La Concha Resort Puerto Rico Review

Arriving early afternoon in Puerto Rico, we jumped in an Uber and took a short, 15-minute drive from the airport to La Concha.  As it was Tuesday, the streets were not too busy and the hotel lobby was calm. During the weekend, the scene likely would have been more bustling. We were greeted by a staff member who requested proof of vaccination and government-issued ID, and were given a wristband to indicate we were fully vaccinated. All guests are required to be vaccinated and wear masks at all times while moving around the hotel. Hand sanitizer stations were placed around the lobby, in elevators and in each common area.
