This safe from TROVA is small enough to fit in your hand luggage, or even a pocket, with a stealthy design that means it looks just like a battery pack or hard drive. Made from aluminum alloy, the 6.1-inch by 3-inch by 1.2-inch safe features wireless connec- tivity via Bluetooth, and the TROVA app uses your phone’s biometric security check to grant access. Available in charcoal, sandstone, fog and kelp, there is also a leather sleeve available (for an extra $39.99) designed to protect the finish. $199.
Wireless charging is all the rage in the smartphone market, and Anker came up with a nifty portable solution you can use on the go. A strong magnet fixes the 0.5-inch-thin battery to your phone, so you can still use it while charging, and a built-in foldable kickstand allows you to watch videos comfortably, too. It can charge the latest smartphones at least once, de- cent enough for a battery so small and unobtrusive. $59.99.
Smart mattresses are increasingly common, but you can also convert your existing mattress by using a cover like this one, which slips on like a fitted sheet. Not only will it track sleep and health metrics such as sleep stages and heart rate, it can set each side of the bed to a temperature you can choose using an accompanying app on your phone. The Pod 3 cover can also heat up or cool the bed quickly whenever you want and makes getting up in the morning easier thanks to gentle vibrations and a gradual temperature change. $1,645.
Belgian brand Cowboy received rave reviews for the fourth iteration of its e-bike, thanks to its impressive range and removable battery, making for easier charging than rival manufacturer VanMoof. It also boasts an integrated cockpit
for your smartphone, which will charge it on the move, and a great app that will help you navigate while displaying stats from your ride. A high price puts the Cowboy 4 firmly at the luxury end of the market, but this slick package will encourage new riders onto two wheels. $2,990.
There is something magical about sipping a glass of local wine while watching the sun slip into the Aegean Sea as the afterglow tinges traditional, white-washed Cycladic houses with glorious shades of rose, purple and gold. Ancient Greeks believed Helios, the Sun God, caused sunsets by driving his fiery chariot into the sea. Standing at water’s edge in Mykonos, watching the sky slowly turn from purple to inky black, you almost believe it.

I hadn’t even made it to my first cup of coffee when I got an early phone call from my sister, who lives two time zones away. “OMG, Kristy, Patsy Cline came on twice while I was driving the kids to school today,” she laughed. “You know what that means, right?” We both gasped and then instantly began singing the lyrics to “La Bamba,” an inside joke we’d shared since our family’s Alaskan cruise decades ago when we, unintentionally, won the ship’s karaoke contest among a sea of Patsy Cline tributes.
