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.

HP SPROCKET SELECT PHOTO PRINTER

It’s perfect for holiday time, letting you share 2.3-inch by 3.4- inch photos with your loved ones instantly. Take photos, edit them on your phone, then print to give your family and friends a physical souvenir from this festive season and other events. $149.99.

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. French manufacturer Parrot waded in with this package, which combines the Anafi drone with FPV goggles powered by a smartphone. 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.
