SONYWF-1000XM3
These completely wireless, noise-cancel- ling headphones have taken the world by storm since their release, thanks to top build quality and great features. Adjust the noise-cancelling level by tapping the left earbud, and use the right to control phone calls and audio playback. Fine- tune the experience using the accompanying Sony app, and enjoy up to six hours of playback with noise-cancelling switched on. A sound enhancement engine improves the quality of compressed content, and the only real drawback is a lack of water-resistance, which means you can’t wear them in the rain or during workouts. $230.

BEURER WL90
If you struggle to get going during the dark winter months, a wake-up light like the WL90 might be the solution. It mimics sunlight to help you wake up naturally and feel more refreshed, producing increasingly bright light in the run-up to your alarm going off. It also simulates daylight, which can help improve the effects of seasonal affective disorder. The WL90 doubles as a reading lamp and music player and provides a USB port to charge your smartphone. Set up your favored configuration using the Beurer LightUp app to make sure you wake up feeling rested. $150.

SAMSUNG GALAXY FOLD
It may have been delayed due to screen issues, but Samsung’s foldable smartphone now means you can enjoy a 7.3- inch Dynamic AMOLED screen that doubles over on itself to fit right into your pocket. In the folded position you can use the 4.6-inch cover display, which it- self is larger than the screen on the iPhone SE. It also boasts six cameras, 12GB of RAM and 512GB storage in what looks like an impressive pack- age. As powerful as the Galaxy Fold may be, the price tag will make some potential buyers think twice. $1,980.

DELL LATITUDE 7400 2-IN-1
Business travelers place unique demands on their laptops, and Dell came up with a machine that meets all of them with ease. An Intel Whiskey Lake processor and 16GB of RAM provide the power, while a 14-inch 1080p touchscreen adds finesse. As a 2-in-1 system, the 7400 is slightly thicker than a pure laptop, but it’s still sleek. That’s something of a feat given the massive 78Wh battery that powers the whole thing for up to 18 hours, plus the look is a bit classier than your standard business laptop. $2,800.

Indulge in the Seductive Splendor Bora Bora

I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
