The 5 Best Apple Watch Apps So Far

Well that didn’t take long: there are already over 3,500 Apple Watch apps available. Considering the device has only been on the wrists of consumers for around two months at the most at this point, that’s pretty impressive. Of course Apple’s built-in apps are all stellar.

Solpro Helios Review: The Best Portable Solar Charger

Portable solar chargers are a good idea in principle. Too bad they are all ugly, clunky and inconvenient — right? Wrong. Well, right in many ways, but wrong at least in this one instance.
