KEYSMART URBAN21 COMMUTER BACKPACK
A stellar performer during testing by Global Traveler, the Urban21 is a tough, well- designed bag perfect for commuting and business trips. A padded laptop pocket handles 13- to 15-inch devices, but its thoughtful features, like the waterproof, easy-access pocket and the protective hard-shell compartment, make the bag stand out. Made to fit under airline seats as a personal item, the bag is perfect for carrying your tech gear and other small items you might want to access in transit. Thanks to a HexBreathe back pad, it’s comfortable even in warmer conditions, and high-quality construction makes the Urban21 feel like it should last for years. $239.99.

BOSE SOUNDBAR 700
The march of the smart speaker continues un- abated, but most popular models offer middling sound quality at best. Renowned audio company Bose set out to fix that, adding smart capabilities to its well-reviewed soundbar. Compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice commands, it also offers Apple AirPlay 2 playback, and a sleek design means the Soundbar 700 looks great in any room. If you’re looking for a complete audio system, make the device the centerpiece of a surround sound setup by adding a bass module and separate speakers. $799.95.

PARROT ANAFI FPV DRONE
First-person view is the latest frontier in drone technology, using goggles to put you in your drone’s perspective as it flies.

It makes for a hugely immersive experience at a lower price point than rival companies, which charge around $700 for the goggles alone. The Anafi proves a great drone for portability and boasts a 180-degree tilting camera. The FPV pack ships with the drone, glasses, a backpack and other accessories. $799.
