elago

Apple nerds, this accessory is made for you. The W3 Stand ($20 MSRP; on sale for $14.83 through elago or $16 on Amazon) is an Apple Watch stand that, when your watch is in place, looks like an old-school Mac monitor from the 1980s. It’s made from scratch-free silicone to protect against damage to your watch.

ExoLens

ExoLens showed off a new case for the iPhone 7 at CES this year—one that allows users to attach high-quality Zeiss lenses to the case so that users can create pro-level photos. The new case reportedly ships in two months; no word on the pricing.

Indiegogo

The iStand7 ($64 pledge through Indiegogo) is a portable stand case with a wireless charger and 3000mAh backup battery power. It even comes with a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, if you miss having the old wired earbuds on your iPhone 7. It’s expected to ship in April.

JAM Audio

The Doubledown ($50 MSRP) is a splash-proof portable wireless speaker—but the makers want you to buy more than one. “If you buy one, it’s awesome, but if you buy two, you can pair them for spectacular stereo sound,” they say. They come in blue, red, and black.

Say the makers: “With headphones built into the headset that add an extra dimension, you'll be to truly immerse yourself in virtual reality.”

Afraid of losing your new AirPods? The Spigen AirPods Strap ($10 MSRP, same price on Amazon) ties them down, almost like your old wired Apple earbuds, so that you’re in less danger of having to find replacements.

Twelve South

The new Relaxed Leather ($40 MSRP) line of iPhone cases is “crafted in rich tones of taupe, herb and marsala”—each made of genuine leather that evolves over time: “Constant use and handling continues to soften the leather and darken its original tone.” In other words: It gets cooler the more you use it.
