Welcome to our weekly look at some of the newest companions for your iOS devices. This week, we’re featuring a perfect Apple TV accessory, a high-quality iPhone wallet case, and more.
Logitech Harmony Smart KeyboardA well-designed compliment for any Apple TV, the new Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard combines the fantastic universal remote control system with a full-sized keyboard. Thanks to the touchpad, users can even browse the Web on a TV-connected PC or Mac. The one-touch activity buttons also make it simple to do things like watch a movie. Using the companion app, available to download on the App Store, TV fans can turn their iPhone into a remote with personal activities, gestures, and quick access to 50 favorite channels. The complete set, which also comes with an IR blaster, retails for $149.99 and can be ordered from Logitech’s site now.
Antorini Wallet Case for the iPhone 5s/5 from SenaA minimalistic wallet case for the iPhone 5s/5, the new Antorini from Sena is made with full-grain European leather. Along with a card slot and sleeve for bills, the built-in handset case features a microsuede lining. A snap closure strap holds the wallet together. Available in black or tan, the Antorini Wallet Case can be purchased now from Sena for $54.95.
Kenny Scharf UE Boom Bluetooth SpeakerTeaming up with legendary New York City street artist Kenny Scharf, UE is releasing a special edition of its Boom Bluetooth speaker. The speaker celebrates Scharf’s celebrated Blablobs design. The Boom itself was released last year and features a 360-degree sound profile, a water and stain resistant skin, and up to 15 hours of battery life. You can read our complete review here. A very limited-edition run of the speaker can be purchased for $199.99 directly from UE’s site now.
Misfit Classic T-Shirts and Sport SocksThe newest products from Misfit Wearables are accessories for the company’s Shine activity tracker. Both the Classic T-Shirt and Sport Socks have a custom-designed pocket to fit the small device while working out or on a run. The T-shirt, made with 100 percent fade resistant cotton, offers a gender-specific fit and comes in black, white, gray, navy, or teal. The socks are made with a lightweight and breathable cotton blend. You can snag a two-pack of the socks for $29.99 and a T-shirt for $24.99, directly from Misfit’s site. The company is also offering larger packs of both products. I reviewed the tracker itself last year, and really enjoyed the beautiful hardware design and easy-to-use app.
