Everyone expects Apple to release an iWatch some day, and until then, several players have tried to fill that void. The most publicized player in the SmartWatch field is Pebble, and I was one of their early backers. I have been using mine for several months now and have come to rely on it. My phone can be in my pocket, backpack, or downstairs, and I can still get my Caller ID displayed on my wrist. I can even reject a call and send it to voicemail. But I can't answer the phone.
With iOS 7 Apple has introduced support for MFi (Made for iPhone), third-party game controllers. I anticipate that over the next few months we will see a plethora of options along with this one, which is purported to be Logitech’s entry into the field. This image comes to us from @evleaks

The Waterfield iPhone Wallet ($49) is a compact, leather case designed to hold almost everything you need. Your iPhone is inserted into one side of the wallet, while cash and credit cards fit on the other side of the Ultrasuede divider. The front window on the iPhone Wallet lets you both see and use your iPhone without needing to take it out every time someone texts or calls.
Griffin’s Survivor + Catalyst ($69.99) is an excellent waterproof and rugged protective case. This case will keep your iPhone stylish and well protected in the most extreme of circumstances, as well as in the course of everyday activities. And one of the best things about this case is the level of protection you get for its relatively low price compared to other high-quality, waterproof iPhone 5 and 5s cases.
I've written about my decision to "go for the gold" iPhone 5s, so now I can't really be expected to plug an ordinary white cable into it, can I? I want gold. So I've backed the JUICES+ Kickstarter project that offers "the cable Apple should have made" with its longer length and woven fabric, in gold of course.
I never would have imagined that I could improve my golf game with my iPhone, but now I can with the new GolfSense by Zepp. This golf swing analyzer works with a sensor in a glove and sends data to a free app on your phone. Amazing. Just attach the motion sensor to your favorite golf glove, download the app, and you are ready to start improving your game.
Apple is rumored to be releasing an iWatch. But if you can't wait, or find yourself using your iPhone to tell time instead of a watch, consider the iHangy ($19.99 and up).
The iHangy is a clever slip-in case and adaptor that lets you dangle your iPhone from the included keychain or necklace. Optional earbuds make it a pleasure to listen to your music. Their newer models even have a built in stylus.
A charging cable is usually just a charging cable. They accomplish the same thing by giving life to our favorite iDevices.
However, the boltBOX lightning charger by Scosche ($24.99) intrigued me. I liked the nifty, compact design of the boltBOX and the wide range of colors to choose from. I received a red boltBOX to review.
Even though there are many other retractable cables out there, my previous solution to keeping my charging cable together when away from home was to wind it up and wrap a rubber band around it before putting it in my bag. I know, I know, I'm pretty high tech that way.
Numerous external batteries are available for the iOS family of devices, though most of them only allow you to charge one device at a time. But in today's world, many digital natives carry around multiple devices. Families traveling with their phones and tablets may find themselves passing around an external battery like a canteen running out of water. Battery accessory expert Anker offers a solution with its second-generation, high-power external battery that can recharge up to three devices simultaneously. How does Anker's 2nd generation Astro3 ($99.00) compare to other external iPhone and iPad compatible batteries? Read on to find out.
IFrogz, which is owned by Zagg, recently released a new Bluetooth headphone called the Coda Forte ($99.99). I have been enjoying the review pair sent to me by Zagg. Full disclosure: I am not a true audiophile. If it sounds good to me I like it. So this is a review about Bluetooth headphones from an average guy, who likes to listen to music and podcasts at home, walking the dog, and while mowing the lawn.

"Have you ever tried to run with your iPhone in your pocket? It's more awkward than running with scissors. Your phone smacks against your thigh during every step or worse, falls out every few feet. Running with your device in hand is not much better. The headphone cord flops everywhere, and your hand is uncomfortable the entire time. The first step to taking your iPhone or iPod Touch on a run (please don't run with your iPad) is securing it to your body. Armbands can take a little getting used to (it feels slightly like running with a blood pressure cuff) but they are definitely much better than keeping your iPhone or iPod Touch in your pocket. Here are some solutions I've tried out..."
Here's a 2 Cases Comparison article: "There are two cases that protect your iPhone from just about anything: The Ballistic Hard Core and The Otterbox Defender. So which to buy? Both provide the best protection you can buy. The Ballistic provides five layers of protection. The Otterbox provides three. However, the three layers are all that's needed for most people.
