On the video side, it’s capable of capturing 8k footage. It’s also a beautiful device with a combination of metal and leather across its body.

Sonos Move 2, £449

Sonos Move 2

In the world of portable speakers, finding the right balance between quality and portability is the ultimate goal. We’ve all been hanging out with friends for one of them to whip out a speaker so tiny that any semblance of acoustic quality is a faint dream. The Sonos Move 2 though is a different beast. Easily transportable, while also featuring the full might of a stereo system, it’s a powerhouse of sound with 24-hour charge. It’s also equipped with Sonos’ Trueplay technology, analysing the acoustics of its surroundings to optimise sound quality

Available at Sonos.

Stanley Quencher, £44.99

Stanley Quencher

The Stanley Quencher rose to notoriety when a video circulated online of a Stanley flask surviving a car fire without the ice inside melting. This is entirely feasible thanks to the Stanley’s vacuum insulation, which makes it virtually impossible for heat to penetrate into or out of the vessel, keeping hot things hot and cold things cold. At the same time, it has an ergonomic handle and smooth, clean aesthetic that makes it perfect to carry around with you in the office, or while working out.

Available at Stanley.
