To paraphrase Ferris Bueller, tech moves pretty fast – and if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss the chance to own a drone with a 12 megapixel camera which starts hovering when it recognises your face. So keep up with our weekly pick of the best gadgets and tech out right now, whether you’re after something simple to make your every day more frictionless or something a bit special. To be specific, the ‘something a bit special’ is a £2,100 luxury watch winder.

RHA MA650 wireless earphones

SHOP

These wireless earphones give well-balanced, thick and clean sound with none of the weird tinniness which a lot of Bluetooth sets suffer from. Plus, they’re water, sweat-proof and hardy enough to survive being chucked in your bag every day and are good for 12 hours on one charge. A quality bit of kit.

RHA, £99

Revo SuperSystem music player

SHOP

Fiddling about with aux cables is extremely 2009. Revo’s SuperSystem can stream radio from the internet and connect to both your phone and Spotify. Handily, though, you can go analogue and connect your turntable and other bits and pieces to get the benefit of its crisp, bassy sound. It’s small wonder, too, that Lanark-based Revo are drowning in design awards. Look at it. Just look at it.

Revo, £550

PlayStation 4 Pro 500 Million Edition

SHOP

To celebrate shifting half a billion units since the original PlayStation was launched in 1994, Sony have given this two-terabyte PS4 Pro a fancy translucent blue case. It’s limited to 50,000 units, and while it’s pretty scarce at the moment, you should still keep an eye out for odd units popping up here and there.

Sony PlayStation, £449.99

Anker PowerCore 20100

SHOP

You’ll get two, maybe three full phone charges out of most powerbanks. This monster will do you seven iPhone charges. It’s slim, not too weighty at 365g, and about as aesthetically appealing as a 2001: A Space Odyssey-style black box can be.

Anker, £32.99

Spigen wireless charging pad

SHOP

The rubberised pads on both top and bottom of this wireless charger stop any nicks and scratches developing on your tabletop or on your phone or tablet. It’ll charge through most phone cases up to five millimetres thick and it’s got built-in cooling and noise reduction tech too, so it’s ideal for your bedroom.

Spigen, £29.99

Leica Pinmaster viewfinder

SHOP

Hacking away blindly with no idea whether you’re using the right golf club is amateurish. This laser-assisted viewfinder will tell you exactly how far you are from the green with its LED screen, and it’s waterproof up to three metres should you topple backwards into a water hazard while using it.

Leica, £500

Lumos smart bike helmet

SHOP

Wearable bike tech tends to look a bit Tron with its winking LEDs and drag-contoured lines, but if the lads on their lightcycles had had helmets this technologically endowed they’d have spent less time being smashed to badly rendered polygons. Use the wireless handlebar remote to indicate, and know that if you have to slam the brakes on the 38 red LEDs on the back will automatically flash and stop you being mown down.

Lumos, £149.90

Samsung Gear 360

SHOP

YouTube and Facebook are all over 360-degree videos and photos, so a decent specialist camera is a good bet for futureproofing your Instagram. The Samsung Gear 360 comes with front and rear 180-degree lenses to stitch together a perfect image. Pair up a Samsung device and you can use your phone as a viewfinder.

Samsung, £77

Rapport London watch winder

SHOP

You’re extremely busy, certainly far too busy to be faffing about winding up watches. You should probably make time to watch this stripped-back aluminium cylinder turning your timepiece for you though. The design lets you see every brass cog whirring round. It’s mesmeric. It’ll fit pretty much any size of watch too, and you can set the winding mechanism to suit your watch’s needs.

Rapport London, £2,100

Cross Peerless TrackR pen

SHOP

If you’re forever losing your pen, then this Bluetooth-enabled scribbler. It’s a high-end writing implement, yes, but it’s also got a chip inside which tracks the pen’s location with a time and date stamp, and can ring your phone to tell you where your pen is if you lose it. At £219 it might be a bit steep, but as they say: buy cheap, buy and lose 608.333333 biros instead of one miraculous wizard’s pen.

Cross, £219

Tile Mate Bluetooth tracker

SHOP

If you’re forever losing everything you own, then stick a Tile tracker on it and see where exactly you managed to put your keys/wallet/whatever down via the app on your phone which will make the Tile ring. If you’re forever losing your phone, you should probably stick a Tile on your main phone, and invest in a second phone to track it on. Then stick a Tile on the second phone, invest in a third phone, and so on. The Tile can make your phone ring even when it’s on silent so you can track it down.

Tile, £16.99

DJI Spark Drone

SHOP

No, drones aren’t quite the bleeding edge tech they used to be, but they’re still terrifying enough to be incredibly alluring. This one’s a particularly refined example. With a 12 megapixel camera and a usable range of nearly two kilometres, it’s incredibly easy to make high grade videos while controlling your craft with hand gestures. It’ll start up and hover when it recognises your face too. Terrifying. Alluring.

DJI, £449.99
