44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (9)

Apple has now been making its Watch series for a good few years, most of which have followed roughly the same formula. The Apple Watch Ultra takes all of the good bits of previous designs, and piles as much as possible on top.

While the result is a smartwatch that is by no means cheap, it has also resulted in the perfect device for athletes of all practices. Apple has kept divers, climbers, tennis players, martial artists and everyone in-between in mind.

iRobot Roomba J7

Buy now from iRobot (£699), Amazon (£799)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (13)

iRobot, not to be confused with the 2004 Will Smith classic, is the leading creator of robot vacuums with the Roomba range. Getting smarter each year, the new Roomba J7 combines both vacuum and mop in one machine. This itself isn’t new, but the company has introduced a new self-retracting mop feature.

The mop lifts out of the way when it approaches the carpet, only using the mop in the places you want it. In theory, this means a robot vacuum that can be fully independent and doesn’t need to be assisted… so this is how the robot uprising starts?

Meta Quest 3

Buy now from Amazon (£479), Argos (£479), John Lewis & Partners (£479)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (14)

Ah yes, the metaverse - the supposed future of our digital world. While this new virtual land hasn't exactly begun successfully, many tech leaders are still very much of the view that we'll soon be plugged in, enjoying our own digital house, job and life.

If you want to get in now and enjoy the metaverse and virtual reality, the Meta Quest 3 will likely be the best way to do this. Meta, previously known as Facebook, has poured money into this to offer the latest and most impressive specs available in the world of VR.

Despite an array of impressive features, the Meta Quest 3 only costs £479 - a drop in the bucket compared to Apple's new Vision Pro headset.

Apple Airpods Gen 2

Buy now from Amazon (£229), Argos (£229), Currys (£229), AO (£229), Very (£229)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (15)

For Apple fans, Airpods are likely the obvious choice for a new pair of in-ear headphones. If you are looking for the latest and best option, it will be the new Apple Airpods Pro 2nd generation.

While they don't come cheap, they offer Apple's best active noise cancellation outside of the incredibly pricey AirPods Max, as well as upping the battery life to get you 6 hours on a single charge.

The most important upgrade here is the new H2 chip. This aids the noise cancellation and allows the headphones to adapt songs to offer rich bass and clean high notes in real-time.

DJI Osmo Mobile 6 Handheld Gimbal

Buy now from Currys (£134), eBay (134.50), Argos (£135)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (16)

This will balance out your movement when you are filming, allowing you to take smooth videos even when you are running, driving or otherwise throwing yourself about.

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (17)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (18)

The brand Nothing (best known for headphones so far) has had the world of tech enthusiasts patiently waiting for the reveal of their new smartphone. They promised something a little bit different, and they delivered on that.

The back of the device is transparent, allowing you to see the inner workings of the device. On top of that, it features a number of LED lights that the company has called 'Glyphs'.

HyperX Cloud Alpha

Buy now from Amazon (£69), Argos (£169.99)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (19)

The HyperX Cloud Alpha are a pair of gaming headphones that offer one thing above all: a fantastic battery life. HyperX claims that these headphones offer 300 hours of battery life. That means you can use these headphones for just over 12 days straight without a charge, although we would really recommend a break in there somewhere!

Other than how long they'll last, these headphones also feature a powerful crisp sound and a truly excellent microphone quality.

Sony WH-1000XM5

Buy now from Amazon (£264), Currys (£279) and John Lewis & Partners (£319)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (20)

Back in 2018, Sony released what would become one of the best pairs of headphones available - the WH-1000XM3. Since then we've seen the XM4, and now, Sony has followed up with the WH-1000XM5. If you ignore the somewhat painfully dull naming conventions, these, like their predecessors, are some of the best headphones around.

Scoring 5 star reviews all around, the Sony WH-1000XM5 are very much designed for those who would rather not splurge on a pair ofApple AirPod Maxheadphones.

In terms of specs and audio, these are extremely similar to Sony's renditions from before. They offer market-leading audio across the lows, mids and highs, excellent noise cancellation, and you get an array of smart ambient features.

The biggest difference with these headphones is the design, offering a completely new look to their predecessor. More minimalist and lighter too.

MacBook Pro with M3 Chip

Buy now from Apple (£1,699), AO (£1,949)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (21)

Does Apple's new MacBook Pro reinvent the wheel? No. Does it feature ground-breaking new features and a revolutionary design…? Also no. What Apple's new MacBook Pro does is ramp up specs and improve on an already popular design.

It features a backlit magic keyboard with touch ID, plus three Thunderbolt 4 ports, an HDMI port, SDXC card slot, a headphone jack and a MagSafe 3 port. Additionally, it has 36GB unified memory and 1TB SSD storage, but the biggest change here is the processor, now featuring Apple's M3 processor chip. This makes the 2023 MacBook Pro an incredibly powerful computer. Finally, we have an Apple laptop that can keep up with gaming alongside the demands of professional editing and creative software.

DJI Mini 3 Pro

Buy now from Amazon (£573), DJI (£709) and Currys (£588/£728)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (22)

Every year, DJI’s Mini series gets smaller and yet more powerful, cramming high-end specs into a lightweight drone that you can chuck in your bag.

But with all those improvements, comes an eye-watering price, and an increasing fear for your financial status if you crash it. It offers advanced obstacle avoidance features, a rotating lens so you can film portrait or landscape, 4K video, smart flying features like automatic tracking and the ability to follow a subject.

Despite its higher price, this feels like the perfect drone for beginners, those who like to travel, or really anyone in the market for a light-weight, high tech drone.

The mirror itself is a 32-inch Full HD touchscreen, complete with 30W speakers and a brushed metal finish.

Biolite FirePit

Buy now from Amazon (£189.99), Go Outdoors (£199)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (31)

We love bonfires (and barbecues!) but it does get tiresome having to dance around the fire all evening to dodge the eye-watering smoke. The FirePit eliminates smoke by making your fire hotter. Battery-powered fans at the bottom of the fire basket stoke the flames from beneath, while the mesh sides let plenty of air in.

The improved airflow means the flame burns hotter and more efficiently, therefore producing less smoke. Plus, you can put some charcoal in and rest a grill on the top. The fans last between 7 and 30 hours depending on how high they’re turned up, and the battery can be recharged via USB.

Simba Hybrid® Luxe Mattress - SupportCore™

Buy now from Amazon (£947.40), Mattress Online (£1,579)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (32)

A good night’s sleep is one of the most important things you can do for your health and wellbeing.

Memory foam mattresses are fashionable, but their spongy embrace isn’t for everyone. Simba’s patented hybrid solution pairs springs with open-cell foam, a memory foam-like material with internal pockets that allow the mattress to disperse heat. This creates a mattress that’s firm, ensures two people sleeping in a bed won’t feel each other move around, and is cooler than memory foam.

The company’s latest upgrade, the Hybrid Luxe, adds a second set of springs to provide extra support and remove any chance of sore joints for side sleepers. Plus, Simba has added a breathable bamboo wool layer just beneath the top layer, to help regulate your temperature and fend off a sweaty night’s sleep.

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (33)

Its creator, the Swedish design studio Transparent, says that its speakers use durable, recyclable materials. Each of the devices can be used alone as a Bluetooth speaker, paired together as a stereo sound system, or plugged into existing audio equipment.

It’s upgradeable too, with a compartment at the rear that can hold and power various modules – a voice assistant, for example, or new wireless tech.

Sonos Arc soundbar

Buy now from Amazon (£798), Currys (£899) and Sonos (£899)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (35)

Offering a hard-to-beat balance of features, design, ease of use and performance, the Sonos Arc, the company’s first Atmos soundbar, is an easy product to love. There are very few soundbars out there that do so much so well. In fact, it's our pick for thebest soundbar.

No matter what you’re watching, it sounds superb. There’s a stunning clarity to dialogue, a fullness to bass and stacks of detail across the frequency range. But when you listen to an Atmos soundtrack, you really hear the added breadth and depth you’d expect from a more immersive 3D soundstage, with sound effects that are placed precisely around and above you, delivered by the Arc’s carefully angled drivers.

Of course, it’ll fit into a wider Sonos multi-room system if you have other Sonos speakers, or act as a superb sound system on its own for crisp, expressive music playback. Its size means you’ll probably want a 55-inch TV or larger though, as it’ll dwarf anything smaller.

Flare Calmer

Buy now from Amazon (£19.95), Gear 4 Music (£20.99)

44 cool gadgets: Our pick of the best new tech for 2024 (36)

What are the most annoying sounds you can think of? Nails scratching down a chalkboard? Car alarms? It could be that our ears, through thousands of years of evolution, are sort of designed to find these sounds particularly unpleasant to act as a warning that danger is imminent.

That’s great for our ancient ancestors, listening out for prowling sabre-tooth tigers, but for us modern humans it’s just plain annoying. In fact, according to audio specialists Flare, the shape of the eardrum itself acts as a bell, adding 20db of distortion-causing resonance.

This irritating distortion could impact on our mental and physical wellbeing, so the idea behind the Flare Calmer earplugs is that they change the shape of the eardrum to cut out the particularly annoying distorted frequencies between 2,000-8,000 Hz. By doing this, they claim to reduce ear fatigue, noise-induced headaches and overall stress levels.

So does it work? Well, it’s hard to tell how much earplugs can reduce your overall stress in the midst of a global pandemic, protests in the streets and the ever-present threat of a toddler walking into your Zoom meetings, but what is certain is that after using them almost constantly for a few weeks now, there are definitely benefits to having them in.

For a start, it is noticeable that the very worst day-to-day frequencies are reduced, and this has the knock-on effect that they are ultimately less annoying. The same can be said when you have them underneath headphones, and although they change the sounds slightly, it makes music a little warmer and notches down the intensity.

Another side effect that has been noted by other users, not that I can verify and wasentirely unexpected by Flare, is that it reduces the constant ringing experienced by those suffering from tinnitus.- AM

Nothing stirs the soul of a Brit more than the thought of a piping hot cup of tea. However, a cold and forgotten cuppa is practically an insult to British traditions. The Ember Mug2is a very elegant (if expensive), solution to this distinctly British problem.

By connecting the Ember mug to your smartphone via the accompanying app, you get a notification when your brew has reached your perfect temperature, and a heating element in the bottom of the mug keeps it toasty warm until you have finished every last drop.

Weirdly, when we tested it out we found you had to use two teabags to get a good strong brew and were a little disappointed that it can’t be charged via USB (something to do with it drawing a lot of power means it needs its own plug socket), but that is a small price to pay for a sizable 414ml mug of perfectly temperate tea. Milk, no sugar (and two bags) please.

You can also now pick up the Ember Travel Mug², which is great for warm drinks on the go.-AM

It looks like a cross between a weapon and a power tool (and actually when you switch it on you could be forgiven for thinking it's both) but in reality, the Theragun Prime is a percussive therapy device, designed to massage your muscles by rapidly applying pressure to your body up to 40 times per second.

It claims to get 60 per cent deeper into your muscles than other massagers, increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation, muscle tension, and working out any knots that have developed.
