What’s to love: A su­per easy way to back up the con­tents of a smart­phone.

What does it do: This is a charg­ing ca­ble — avail­able for An­droid or iPhone and tablets — which backs up the phone ev­ery time it is charged. No need to back up to the cloud or a com­puter. If a phone or tablet is lost, plug the MEEM ca­ble into the new de­vice and photos, con­tacts and cal­en­dar can eas­ily be trans­ferred to the new de­vice. Us­ing the ca­ble re­quires the use of the MEEM app. In­for­ma­tion is pass­word pro­tected. Prices, de­pend­ing on whether you need an iPhone or An­droid com­pat­i­ble cord, and amount of mem­ory re­quired, range from $59.99 to $119.99.

What’s to love: Small light­weight wire­less ear­phones for use while work­ing out.

They come with three sizes of ear cush­ions, charg­ing ca­ble and car­ry­ing bag. The ear­phones sell for $129.99.
