Greyhours Electron Watch
As the smartwatch shadow grows, most brands are committing to one of two camps: technological or classical. Greyhours, however, is making a name for itself in the no man’s land with the best of both. Sleek minimalism on the outside, finely-tuned Swiss calibre on the inside.
Available at Greyhours, priced £240.
Retro games are enjoying a renaissance, but who wants to dig out an old (and probably broken) GameBoy from the loft? Nobody, says Gamevice, a tech firm responsible for the brand new iPad-optimised click-on controller. This way, you can enjoy Super Mario Run just as Nintendo intended.
Available at Amazon, priced £73.70.
Final Audio Design Sonorous Vi Headphones
Still wrestling with a crappy pair of earbuds on the commute? It’s time to upgrade your gear. Japanese tech firm Final Audio Design’s metallic cans are serious business. The brand’s Vi model packs a 50mm dynamic driver and a balanced armature transducer, both of which will prolong Saturday night DJ quality well into Monday morning.
Available at Selfridges, priced £549.
Goat Story Gina Smart Coffee Instrument
Despite sharing a name with your mum’s hairdresser, the Gina Smart Coffee Instrument is an ideal choice for anyone looking to streamline their morning brew. The clever coffee pot allows you to choose one of four methods – scale, French press, pour over or cold drip – at the click of a smartphone app. Because let’s be honest, who’s got time to fanny around with filter paper at 7am?
Available to pre-order at Kickstarter, priced £127.
Vauxhall Mokka X
Adding some X-factor to its portfolio of crossovers, Vauxhall has released the Mokka X. Along with a new name for the 2012 model, the facelifted compact SUV now boasts a infotainment system, which comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, OnStar concierge service and Wi-Fi for up to seven devices. It’s a yes from us.
Available at Vauxhall, priced £17,640.
David Bowie Stamp Set
In a world first, The Royal Mail has dedicated an entire commemorative collection to a cultural icon, with six stamps paying tribute to David Bowie’s landmark albums and performances. Forget special delivery, this is Starman delivery.
Available at Royal Mail, priced £6.48.
Pro-Ject Essential III Turntable
If you’re hanging onto Dry January by your fingernails, take the rave home with the Pro-Jecht Essential III turntable. The sound quality is a marked improvement from its predecessor, but still makes an affordable alternative to expert gear. Just make sure the fridge remains beer-less.
Available at Pro-Ject Audio Systems, priced around £277.
Hopper Framed Andy Warhol Print
If your wall space is lacking in art (dog-eared movie posters don’t count), you could do worse than adding a portrait of creative icon Andy Warhol. Shot by none other than Dennis Hopper (yeah, the man from Speed) what it lacks in multi-coloured bean tins it makes up for in pure style.
Available at Mr Porter, priced £605.
