Some Top Notch Accessories for your Apple Watch

Just got yourself a new apple watch? The smart watch is an extremely useful device. Track your fitness goals, voice command your music, become seriously connected with all your personal notifications all from a few swipes on your watch. Oh and tell the time too 🙂

When you first get the apple watch it has a “sporty” look and feel to it, at least with the silicone band that comes with it. Sure, you can go all out and purchase yourself a real premium silver band, but you’ll also be paying a real premium price as always with any Apple branded products.

In this article, I’ve compiled a few different Apple Watch accessories for you, all at reasonable price points from recognizable innovators of the industry.

Nomad Horween Leather Strap (Modern) for the 42mm Apple Watch

Here we have a good old classic leather strap band from Nomad. I feel with leather straps you either love them or you hate them. This leather band for the apple watch is surprisingly popular with it’s classic recognizable look.

Some of the current apple watch bands never seem to blend in with what you are wearing. Add some style to your apple watch with this classic looking Leather strap. There are a couple of variations in the store, but this particular band is the “fan” favorite.

Nomad Apple Watch Stand

Another highly popular product is the Nomad Stand for the Apple watch. This product is a premium apple watch stand built with military grade aluminum and a sleek, minimalistic design. It also integrates well with the apple watch charging disc. Simply take your apple watch charger, place the circular end into the stand and charge your Apple watch on the stand.

Nomad Pod Pro Lightning & Apple Watch Charger

Next we have the Nomad Pod Pro. A simple, convenient charger/battery pack for your apple watch and your iPhone. Equipped with a 6000mAh lithium ion battery, it neatly stores and hides your apple watch charging cables and comes with a integrated MFI certified lightning cable.

Moshi Travel Stand for the Apple Watch

Here we have another Apple Watch Stand, this time from a different brand Moshi. This apple watch stand is a slim, compact solution for travelers. It comes with an integrated cord storage compartment managing the length you want for your apple watch cable and it is fully adjustable. It also wraps up your cable for portability. Just plug in your apple watch charging disc and you’re ready to go.

Whoosh Diamond Defense Nano Liquid Protection – For any screen size

Though this product is designed for smartphones it does highlight that it could be used on your Apple watch. Protect your investment with this nano liquid screen protection. You don’t need any tempered glass, it’s an invisible screen protection that makes your screen 15x more scratch resistant.

How does it work?
It’s an advanced technology that creates a strong, hydrophobic, nano-thin coating on the screens glass that cannot be seen or felt. Any particles that come in contact with the treated surface bounce or slide off the coating. Minimizing the damage caused to the device.

A Virtually Indestructible Lightning Cable – Fuse Chicken

Tell me this have you ever had your lightning cable chewed up by your dog and were able to charge your phone after that ??? I can’t say I have, but the new Fuse Chicken every day lightning cable can survive exactly that.

Fuse chicken did make a video and claimed that the cable was “virtually” indestructible (see video below). Now if you were to take an electric hack saw and try to cut this cable in half, of course it’s going to cut. I’d say so anyway, I’ve yet to test it, but my money is on the hacksaw. That test is like taking a rocket launcher to test a bullet proof vest. What are your chances that an electric hacksaw is ever going to meet your lightning cable?? Very slim.

Having said that, this cable can sure withstand a lot more damage than your typical lightning cable and comes with a customer focused warranty that’s hard to come by nowadays.

As you can see from the video above if you ever go to visit the park with your family & friends make sure to bring your lightning cable along so you can swing from the trees. Such a fun outdoor activity 🙂 .

The Fuse Chicken brand is one of our top sellers and really does offer a lightning cable that can withstand a huge amount of damage. Which does make it “virtually” indestructible as claimed on the packaging, just don’t expect it to withstand a samurai sword chop if it ever comes to that. I hope it doesn’t.

I have 2 lightning cables I’m using right now, to the right is a picture of my standard lighting cable I got with my phone. impressive huh?

Yep, that’s my cable and I like to think that I look after things, but I think my cable disagrees. This cable has literally been in the same place since I got it, so I have no idea why it’s like that, it’s naturally ran it’s course and over time they do split open with very little force to cause it. The cable is still functioning 50% of the time, but it looks horrible and I’d rather it function all the time.

I now have a fuse chicken lightning cable that I use a majority of the time. My regular lightning cable basically sucks and that’s why I’m trying to get the world to convert to fuse chicken, not just because they are virtually indestructible, but it can be very handy also.

For example: not only does the fuse chicken cable withstand excessive amounts of force, but it also allows for you to mount your phone at different angles like the image below.

Why would you care if your phone is mounted upright while charging? You know what, I thought the exact same thing, until I needed to use it. It can be quite a useful feature especially when watching videos that you don’t want to have to keep re-positioning to watch. It could also be used when your driving, but I have a phone mount for that. What I use this mounting cable for is cooking. Anytime I’m watching a DIY video I always have my cable handy in an upright position so I can watch all of my videos and avoid getting “chicken” and all sorts of junk on my phone.

Other Fuse Chicken Products

There are not only lightning cables with fuse chicken you can find both lightning cables and charging cables for your android devices. To see all fuse chicken products we offer click here.

Conclusion

There isn’t really much more to talk about as it is just a cable after all. The conclusion to this article is to get yourself a fuse chicken before your lightning cable looks anything like mine. If you did enjoy this article, please consider subscribing to our email newsletter below.

Top 5 Affordable iPhone Cases For Your Devices

You’ve gone out and got your new phone. You’re super excited, it still has that new scent and glistens in the sunlight. You walk out the door, your phone rings, you reach to grab it… It slips out your hand hits the ground face up “bang” you look at your brand new phone, “phew” it looks still in tact you pick it up, turn it around and the back of your brand new phone is shattered into little tiny pieces. The screen still works, but your glistening brand new phone is ruined, and you probably signed a 2 year renewal.

How many of you have done this? it happens all too often!

As soon as you get your phone, you need to get a case. Get it before, if you know what phone your getting. When it comes to choosing a case it’s not a difficult choice, it’s just there are literally thousands of them out there and it almost makes it impossible to choose.

I’ve made that choice a little easier and narrowed it right down to 5 cases I’d recommend.  Smart phone cases that I would use for my own device, all within budget and built with quality in mind.

#1 UAG iPhone 6 Plus / iPhone 6S Plus Feather-Light Composite Military Drop Tested iPhone Case – Ash

Here we have the UAG iPhone 6/6s plus case. The UAG brand is one of my personal favourites. This case has an armor shell and an impact resistant core. Also all UAG cases meet military drop test standards. Not only is this case one of its kind it’s only 49.99CAD which is extremely affordable.

#2 Blu Element 2 in 1 Folio iPhone 6/6S Case.

Here’s another iPhone 6 case, don’t worry we will get to other models too. This iPhone case by blu element is one of my favorite folio cases. It’s an affordable price and offers great protection plus some additional perks. The folio section opens up and inside has simple slip in protection that is magnetic and can be removed from the folio it also features 3 cards slots for cards and cash and has a magnetic closure for added protection.

#3 – Nomad Leather Folio iPhone 7 Case

Next up we have the Nomad leather folio iPhone 7 case. This case is extremely popular and is another folio case. This case is a little more expensive and that’s because it’s made with real leather. Like the Blu Element 2 in 1 Folio iPhone case this also has 3 card slots for your cards and cash and allows for your phone to fit snugly adding protection with the additional folio bulk.

#4 VRS Design Simpli Lite iPhone 7 Steel Silver Case

The VRS Design is an extremely affordable case with premium protection for the iPhone 7. It’s only 29.99 CAD and has some distinctive features. The VRS design cases in general are some of the best looking cases I’ve seen. This one is among my favourite as I really like the brushed metal design. Not only does this iPhone case look good and costs only 30$, but it also has a scratch prevention design and a kickstand feature as you can see in the image below.

#5 Ballistic Tough Jacket Case for iPhone 7

Last but not least, we have the ballistic tough jacket case for the iPhone 7. The ballistic jacket offers multiple layers of protection with Reinforced Ballistic Corners that provide protection against cracked screens from corner drops. Raised lips and corners provide protection from surface shock and scratches. It’s also only 29.99 cad for this case.

The SNES Classic Edition Has Been Announced & Dated.

Last year it was almost impossible to get your hands on the NES classic, especially around Christmas time. They were literally sold out world wide and there was a huge shortage in supply. This year you may be in luck with the release of the SNES classic edition and Nintendo have mentioned “significantly more” units to be manufactured.

As the NES classic was a huge success, but has now been discontinued. Nintendo have announced the SNES classic which it plans to launch on September 29th in the US and Europe. We can assume Canada has the same release date, but it has yet to be confirmed. You can get the console for 79.99USD and this is another assumption but I’m guessing around $100 CAD for the item.

The super Nintendo classic edition features some huge game titles which are included within a total of 21 games for the classic gaming system. It also includes the unreleased Star Fox 2 that everyone has been waiting for.

Here is a complete list of the games you’ll get.

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-Zero
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Mega Man X
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox
  • Star Fox 2
  • Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Punch-Out
  • Yoshi’s Island

It’s also worth mentioning that with this unit you’ll receive 2 controllers as oppose to 1 with the previous system. It also features a HDMI output and is in a smaller form factor than it’s predecessor. Image below.

10 Simple & Brilliant Gaming Room Ideas.

There is no denying that every gamer wants to turn their basement or spare room into a gaming man cave or lady cave whatever you want to call it. Hats off to the people that have actually done it!

Through out my regular day on social media I see a huge amount of people showing off their gaming room ideas and setups. I decided I would like to take the opportunity to share them here with you guys.

So here are 10 of the best gaming room ideas I’ve seen over the course of these past few months. Hopefully these will inspire you to get that basement finished and converted into your own gaming man cave (or lady cave).

1. Slick & Stylish Game Room Setup

This is a slick and stylish game room / in home theatre setup. It’s a simple gaming room with its own in house theater and a simple design.

2. Purple Backlight Gaming Setup

This gaming setup is phenomenal. Simple purple backlights behing your gaming PC to create the ultimate gaming ambience. I’m personally going to be adding a backlight to my gaming room. Whenever I get it finished. Not decided on the colour yet.

3. Star Wars Theme Gaming Setup

As I write this I’m literally humming the Star Wars theme song. For all those avid star wars fans out there do you dream of a better Star Wars theme setup than this? You have to have the light sabers on the wall.

4. Magnificent Computer Workstation Setup

Ok so maybe 8 monitors is overkill, but still it looks totally amazing. You have a choice here, blue backlighting behind your monitor or (forgive me because I don’t know the correct technical term) up the wall lighting for that extra fancy ambienze.

5. Gamer Portal Idea

Now forgive me, because I couldn’t tell you if this is photoshopped or not but regardless it still looks phenomenal and is definitely do able. It’s probably not recommended, putting a hole through your wall. You could just hang up a circular mirror and put some accent lighting around it to get the same if not better result.

6. Gamer Collection Shelf

This is a simple gamer collection shelf, all you have to do is run to your hardware store, buy a shelf and get some white under lighting for each shelf and your all set. Backlighting always gives off that premium feel.

7. Red Simple PC Gamer Setup

Here we have a simple red themed pc gamer setup. It’s pretty basic, but looks professional. It wouldn’t take much to do this, you’ll just have to get yourself a good gaming chair.

8. Funky Retro Gaming Setup

Everyone loves retro gaming themes. This is the ultimate retro setup with arcades consoles, arcade controllers into the table and an all room retro theme.

9. Console & Gaming Wall

This is a popular concept that a few people have used. It’s the ultimate console wall system. A collection of gaming consoles all in one place.

10. Badass Simple Gaming Basement

This is the basement every gamer wants.. Simple gaming area with everything you need.

Lucid Sound LS 40 Video Review, Unboxing The Gaming Headset.

Yesterday I received the Lucid Sound LS 40 gaming headset. So I decided to make a short video about my favorite universal gaming headset and unbox the item right in my dining room. I briefly go over some of its features and you get to see what’s in the box.

This was my first ever unboxing/review video, and I figured when you get to see the gaming headset hands on you can understand more about why this is my favorite gaming headset. Not just from a design perspective, but the abundance of gaming features it comes equipped with and all the other reasons you could use this headset for. The Lucid Sound LS 40 is a truly universal gaming headset for gamers.

Anyway, enough with my rambling, here is the video I made. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel. It’s a fairly new channel, but we will be adding more and more products as we go along.

4 Gaming Headsets for Gamers, That Won’t Break The Bank.

With all the gaming headsets available online today it’s always a tough decision choosing the right one. You don’t want to break the bank and at the same time you want a headset that’s of decent quality and good enough for your gaming lifestyle.

Today I’ve made your life a whole lot easier by narrowing it down to 4 choices. I was going to go with 5 options, but I was forcing it with the 5th one and narrowed it down to four.

I’ve actually ordered my headset and should have it in the next week or so, it only took me 2 weeks to decide!! The headset I’ve chosen is among the 4 in this article and you can find out which one I ordered at the end.

By no means do you have to choose one of these gaming headsets, better yet just understand why I’ve chosen them and how making your decisions based on these simple reviews would help you when choosing your own gaming headset.

Rule of thumb: What you pay for is what you get.

In this industry, the what you pay for is what you get saying is so true. Sometimes it’s better to buy a cheap headset, because if you’re anything like me your going to break it anyway. I used to buy the skullcandy earbuds for 20$ a piece and in all fairness they aren’t bad little earbuds. However, they just don’t compare in audio quality when it comes to a premium gaming headset. It only takes a couple of tugs on the cable to break them and then your out of another 20 dollars.

If what you are looking for is a quality designed gaming headset, then raising your budget is key to finding that ultimate headset. I’ve gone through my fair share of gaming headsets and they’ve all been on the cheaper side. That is why I’ve decided to go for a higher quality gaming headset and explain how I’ve made my decision. Based on reviews, price point and design perspective.

At the same time, don’t pay too much

I think that $150 to $250 is a reasonable price for a “decent” gaming headset. I feel that a $400+ gaming headset is far too much and I can’t justify buying one for that price, but that’s my personal preference. I realize that you can get an amazing gaming headset for at least $400 and if you can afford to buy one of that caliber then by all means go for it. But remember that you can get just as good of a headset for much less and with a closely comparable audio quality. So if you’re looking to save money then keep reading.

Now we have that out of the way here are the headsets I’ve selected.

Headset #1 – Lucid Sound LS40 Universal Gaming Headset

I really like the lucid sound brand they are one of my favourite brands over most gaming headsets and yet they look nothing like your typical gaming style headsets. The Lucid Sound LS 40 headset speaks for itself. The reviews were very impressive and I couldn’t find any serious negative remarks other than someone had an issue with the bass being lower than a comparable headset, but overall he still gave the headset 5 stars so I’m thinking it wasn’t an issue more of a preference.

The LS40 is a reasonably priced headset and it has a slick, stylish and premium design. This is the best model for Lucid Sound and it comes equipped with a bunch of features such as 7.1 digital surround sound that provides a clear audio quality sound experience and the design itself sets it apart from the competition. It also has 2 microphones, a 15 hour battery life and touch controls on the sides of the ear cups to give it that extra smart-techy feel.

The selling point for me and this may surprise you is the fact that the ls 40 design can be used for more than just gaming and that alone prompts me to want to buy this headset. I’d be lying if I said it was only the design that prompts me to buy… Of course the 7.1 surround sound, 15 hour battery life and the touch controls have their input, but my deciding factor was the fact that the design was not completely gamer centric, but it still came with all the necessities a gamer would need.

Features

  • 7.1 surround sound for ps4, xbox one, pc and ps3
  • Design – crafted for comfort
  • 15 hour battery life
  • 2 mics – one integrated mic and a removable boom mic for gaming
  • Mic monitoring capability (hear your own voice)
  • Mobile phone controls – Answer calls, play/pause your music, change tracks and more with the on-earcup controls

Headset #2 – Razer Man O’War Wireless 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset

My second choice was the Razer Man O’War, like the lucid sound ls 40 this headset features a 7.1 surround sound system for the ultimate gaming experience and other comparable features. One thing that threw me off with this headset were the mentions about the plastic headband on the headset. Quite a few reviews mentioned that the plastic was not very durable and people were breaking it easily, but I do take every review with a grain of salt and if you do decide to bend the plastic band on the headset or throw it across a room, then sure it’s going to snap. We’ve all been there.. That being said, there are nothing but raving reviews about the audio quality and comfort of this headset and that earned it some brownie points in my eyes.

The selling point for this headset has to be the fact that I couldn’t find a reasonable complaint about the audio quality and that’s ultimately what we are looking for when choosing a gaming headset. The other thing I absolutely loved was the chroma lighting which is customizable with over 16.8 million options to choose from. I like the little things like that.

Features

  • 7.1 surround sound for PC, PS4, Steam Link
  • Retractable digital microphone
  • Quick action controls on the earcups
  • Latency-free wireless performance audio on PC and works with PS4
  • Customizable chroma lighting – 16.8 million colours to choose from
  • 14 hours battery life

Headset #3 – Turtle Beach Stealth 520 Wireless Gaming Headset

The Stealth 520 Turtle Beach has all the gaming qualities you would need for a gaming headset. Again with the 7.1 digital surround sound capability and the “superhuman hearing” competitive advantage for major gamers. It comes equipped with large 50mm speakers and 3D 360-degree soundscapes with unmatched spatial accuracy. This is an easy setup headset and a truly wireless headset.

I’ve had a few turtle beaches in the past and the audio quality is always good, the only thing I find with these gaming headsets are that they always feel a little flimsy, but at the same time they are lightweight and also somewhat durable.

For the build quality I’m searching for it’s not the headset I want, and unlike the lucid sound ls 40 the design of this headset is strictly gamer centric. There’s no chance you’d be using these anywhere else but your gaming basement. That being said, from a gaming standpoint you can’t go wrong with the audio quality for this gaming headset and it’s a significantly cheaper price. Turtle beaches are truly gamer focused headsets and offer a sound quality that’s perfect for gamers. It’s just not the premium headset I’m searching for, but for some of us this is an ideal headset especially for the price point.

The selling point for this headset is the price and the quality you receive for that price. If what you are looking for is an above entry level headset for a reasonable price with standard gaming features then you can’t go wrong with the Turtle Beach Stealth 520.

Features

  • Wireless gaming headset
  • DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound
  • Mic monitoring capability
  • Compatible with ps4 pro
  • 360 degree soundscapes with unmatched spatial accuracy
  • Adaptive microphone
  • 15 hour battery life

Headset #4 – HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset for PC & PS4 – Red

I’ve heard nothing but good things about the HyperX II cloud gaming headset. It has everything you would want with a gaming headset. 7.1 surround sound, audio box controls, memory foam earpads and the design of it is a slick gamer style design. This headset will only cost you 129.99 CAD which is nothing in comparison to some of the top name brand gaming headsets, and it comes equipped with comparable features such as that of the audio quality.

The only thing I question is the price. It’s an amazing price for a headset of this caliber, but when the price is so low I’m always a little nervous. Maybe its just me who is like that, but I have to question the quality of the build because of the price they are selling it for.

The downfall for this headset and it’s not really a downfall just a personal issue for me. Is that it looks kind of flimsy and like it could be broken fairly quickly.

You do have to keep in mind that when you buy a headset for that kind of price. How much do you think it is costing the manufacturer to build and is it built with quality materials or cheaper materials to cut down costs? Having said that the reviews for this headset are outstanding and among the best reviews I’ve seen for a headset. There was mention of it breaking easily and also a few reviews mentioning the microphone quality was not as good as competing headsets. I do not doubt that the audio quality of this headset is as good as they say, but I have to question the quality of it because of the cost. I could be wrong, but it’s my just 2 cents.

Overall this could be a great entry-level headset for any gamer.

Features

  • 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound
  • Advanced Audio Control Box
  • Universal design
  • Digital Microphone

Conclusion – Which Gaming Headset Did I Choose?

I’m sure you’ve already figured out the headset I’ve chosen as I mentioned it a few times through out this article. The headset I ended up buying was the Lucid Sound LS 40. I’ll be writing a more thorough review on this headset and may even do a video when it arrives.

Why did I choose this headset? Even though the LS 40 was the highest priced headset of all 4 I immediately fell in love with it from a design standpoint. I like the idea that you can kill 2 birds with one stone with this headset and that is why I was not bothered about the extra cost. When you buy the ls 40 you get a gamer headset with digital surround sound and you also get a music headset that you can take wherever you like. It truly is a universal gaming headset and has a premium look and feel to it.

Like I said before I’d be lying if I said the design was the only reason I chose the ls 40, but it is by far the deciding factor for me. The fact that you get all the gaming necessities you would need with this headset and a design like no other headset had me sold right from the beginning. I just had to do some homework and look into other headsets before I made that decision.
