From the August 2022 issue of E&T: tech to transform sports, commuting, veg gardening, card games, even curtains.
Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro
A top-notch watch with enhanced dive abilities and more sports and wellness apps than ever. Available in titanium (for a 14-day battery life) or ceramic (the world’s first ceramic smartwatch). The screen is stunning, like an infinitely customisable high-end watch.

Traintrackr London Underground
Traintrackr’s gloriously geeky visualisation of live data is more art than journey planner. This London Underground map features 333 RGB LEDs that update ten times a second, thanks to a Wi-Fi connection to live data from Transport for London. The company also makes digital weather maps.
Prêt à Pousser Multo
Less hydroponics planter, more stylish Scandi furniture that incorporates a mini farm. You can have up to three layers, to feed a family with greens. Successfully Kickstarted and from an established French company that also makes smaller ones.
SwitchBot Curtain Rod 2
I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords, so long as they open and close the curtains for me. This clever retrofitted bot physically sidles along your existing curtain rail, with iOS and Android app control, IFTTT, scheduling and voice control. “Alexa, pull yourself together!”
From £85 switch-bot.com
Garmin Varia RCT715
The first cycle tail light to feature a rear-view camera with radar. Radar alerts you to vehicles approaching from the rear up to 140m away, while the camera captures 1080p HD video and automatically saves footage of incidents. The bright tail light means you’re visible from up to a mile away.
Big Potato Moop
Moop stands for ‘made of ocean plastic’ because these are playing cards with a difference. Each pack is made from two-and-a-half bottles that were once floating in the sea. The resulting cards are rugged and waterproof as well as eco-friendly. Perfect for holidays and poker by the pool.
