Many people dedicate themselves to home training and exercise routines, and popularize treadmills, kettlebells and dumbbells – exercise bikes are also in high demand, and they are one of many items for sale in January. If you plan to spend more time playing video games at home in the cold months ahead, it may be time to upgrade your setup to include an expert-recommended gaming keyboard complete with special features.

Designed specifically for training, Bose debuted its Sport Open earplugs this week, which are currently available for pre-order. The wireless earplugs have a contoured ear hook that grips the outer ridge of the ear and floats over the ear canal instead of inside or on top of it. This new design allows users to listen to music, podcasts or phone calls while keeping an eye on traffic or the surrounding environment. The earplugs stay attached to your ears during high-intensity training, and they are water and sweat resistant. Built with Bose OpenAudio technology, the earbuds have an advanced microphone system that isolates your voice by reducing other noise, and they also isolate callers’ voices from being audible to others.
Each earplug has a special button: The left button lets you access the phone’s virtual assistant, and the right button lets you stop music, answer calls, and more. The earbuds have an eight-hour battery life and are compatible with iOS and Android devices. They come with a protective carrying case and a charging base, and can be paired with the Bose Music app to access more features.
Like Apple’s MagSafe Charger, Anker’s model takes advantage of the magnetic properties of the iPhone 12 series and attaches to the back of the device to provide fast wireless charging. The charger is designed for a low profile, less than a third of an inch, so it should not get in the way of using the phone, and it comes with a 5-foot USB-C cable.
The wireless charger is also easy to travel with, as it is compact and light. Anchor Magnetic Wireless Charger is designed with temperature control, foreign body detection, radiation shielding and other advanced features to provide a safe charging experience to boot.
In competition with the above, the Belkin Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1 MagSafe charger lets you wirelessly and simultaneously charge your iPhone 12, Apple Watch and AirPods. Like the Anker PowerWave Magnetic Pad, the Belkins charger uses MagSafe technology, allowing you to place the iPhone 12 on the charging stand for a secure connection and is compatible with MagSafe cases.
The charger is available in white and black, and it has an architecturally inspired design that fits into offices or living rooms. The charger has LED lights which also indicate the correct charging position.
