1 Louis Vuit­ton Hori­zon Smart­watch Even high- end lux­ury brand Louis Vuit­ton is go­ing smart­watch. Its Tam­bour Hori­zon Smart­watch is pow­ered by Google’s An­droid Wear and is aimed at the ( very well heeled) fre­quent trav­eller. As well as the usual func­tions, there is an app that man­ages flight info, and a city guide. It’s cus­tomis­able with watch faces based on LV de­signs, and a va­ri­ety of straps and fin­ishes for women and men. There’s no fit­ness mon­i­tor­ing or GPS, but you’ll prob­a­bly want it just to match your Louis Vuit­ton lug­gage. About ¤ 2,600 from eu. louisvuit­ton. com 2 Zty­lus Switch iPhone Lens Case Per­haps a lit­tle con­fus­ingly, Zty­lus calls this a Switch 6 iPhone lens, though it’s only for the iPhone 7. The 6 refers to lens op­tions, de­signed in a sort of a slider sys­tem that lets you switch be­tween the al­ter­na­tives eas­ily. As well as the stan­dard, there’s a 120° wide- an­gle, a 2X tele­photo, 10X macro, 20X su­per- macro and 180° fish- eye. An in­te­grated hand grip helps to hold it and there’s a loop to at­tach a strap, while the case it­self is rea­son­ably ro­bust to pro­tect your hard­ware. $ 50 from ama­zon. com 3 Or­bitkey Or­gan­iser Or­bitkey has a sim­ple mis­sion: to strap your keys into shape. You can or­gan­ise up to seven keys in a stack and there are multi- tool and 8/ 32GB USB mem­ory stick ac­ces­sories. Or­bitkey prom­ises its lock­ing de­vice means they won’t come un­done ac­ci­den­tally and there’s a ring to at­tach a car re­mote. The bands come in soft ma­te­ri­als in­clud­ing leather, can­vas and rub­bery PVC. And, un­like the auld tri­an­gle, keys won’t go jin­gle- jan­gle. From ¤ 20 at adamson­lug­gage. com or Adam­son Lug­gage, Dublin.
