Would you buy this?

It's the gadget nobody needs and everybody wants. Like the iPad, which was misunderstood at the time of its launch, most people don't yet know how a smartwatch will benefit them, and if the hefty investment is worth their time.

Apple has proven it can be. The company's smartwatch acts like a sidekick to the iPhone. It gleans the device's notifications and technologies, and then presents the findings on the prime real estate of wrists.

Some unique features set it apart and help make a case for the 'need' of a smartwatch. The heart sensor draws a lot of appeal because it helps measure how intense a workout is without interrupting it. Apple has also put the technology to work in one of the most intimate ways imaginable.

The pulse of your heart can be sent to another Apple Watch owner. The heart sensor is used to measure a heart beat, while the Watch's vibrating 'taptic' engine recreates the pulse on wrists. Sending this biological rhythm to a loved one says "I'm thinking of you" in terms more powerful than digital text and animations.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
