Not too long ago we did a review of a bunch of Bluetooth speakers on the market. (You can check it out here if you need a refresher.) We walked away most impressed with the little Logitech number. Based on that, we’re pretty excited for the UE BOOM. The wireless speaker from Ultimate Ears (a brand of Logitech) is meant to be a social music player. What does that mean? Well, first of all it offers 360 sound so it’s not just directed at one person. It also can wirelessly connect to another UE BOOM in stereo with the UE BOOM app. The acoustic skin on the speaker makes it completely water and stain resistant so you don’t have to worry about spilling a beer on it at a party. All those are good in our book.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
