1. Apple Watch 3
The launch of Apple Watch series 3 went a bit unnoticed alongside the excitement created by iPhone X – however, the new watch is a great device which although carries the same look as it’s ancestor; it does have some new features that makes it stand out from the rest.
One of the latest feature installed in the new Apple Watch is the LTE which allows users to make calls directly from the watch itself. Apart from this, the Series 3 Watch is equipped with GPS, Accelerometer, heart rate sensor, Altimeter, activity tracker, and gyroscope and of course, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The Caseology iPhone X Screen Protector is one of the best in the market to enhance the protection of your new phone without compromising on its original response sensitivity. The screen protector by Caseology measures just 0.33 inches in thickness and comes with an anti-shatter film that makes sure the fragments of the tempered glass sticks together in case it does break.
