AirPods Pro 2
The latest Apple AirPods Pro 2 earbuds have an upgraded wireless chip for improved audio functionality, a new low distortion driver for clearer audio and improved active noise cancelation. The Apple AirPods Pro 2 provide truly custom sound: You can use your iPhone’s camera to analyze your unique ear anatomy and find the perfect audio settings for you.
The design of the AirPods Pro 2 is fairly similar to the previous generation, but Apple has introduced touch control to the AirPods Pro 2 to help users more seamlessly control their AirPods.

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II
Bose products are known for their excellent sound quality, and the new Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II are no exception. They claim to offer the world’s best active noise cancelation and have a new CustomTune technology that auto-adjusts music to your ears’ liking. They also have an “aware mode” that pauses noise cancelation for when you need to hear your surroundings.
If you disliked how bulky the original Bose QuietComfort Earbuds felt, there’s good news: The QuietComfort Earbuds II are one-third smaller than their predecessor. They’re water- and sweat-resistant, too, so you can wear them to the gym. The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II offer six hours of battery life in a single charge and come with a charging case that holds three additional charges (24 hours of battery life in total).

You can tap into yoga, meditation and other workout programs via Apple Fitness+. (Apple Fitness+ is a subscription service. It costs $9.99 a month; Apple Watch buyers get the first month free.)

Logitech software makes the setup very seamless and I love the clicky GX blue keys they have implemented into this board. TKL keyboards (no number pad) are the way to go if space is a concern and Logitech chose a good button layout.”

Best comfort-related and cozy gifts for him
See comfy slippers, coffee gift cards and more top-rated cozy gifts now.
Amazon Halo Rise
Daylight savings Time starts on Sunday, March 12. While this “spring forward” does mean that the sun will be out later, it can wreak havoc on your sleep. Now is a great time to invest in a sleep tracker so that you can monitor your sleep as you adjust to daylight savings Time.
Many popular sleep trackers operate as wearables, but Amazon’s Halo Rise device is meant to sit by your bedside. The device uses sensors to track your breathing patterns in order to collect sleep data. If you sleep with a partner, don’t worry. It can differentiate between you and your partner’s breathing and movements.
The device also works as a sunrise alarm clock. The alarm clock slowly brightens to wake you up instead of using harsh sounds. However, it also works with Amazon Alexa, so you can ask Alexa to play your favorite song in the morning to wake you up too.
Amazon Halo Rise, $100 (reduced from $140)
