(Mr. Shield)

It would be super annoying to get a scratch on your brand new phone. The Mr. Shield line of screen protectors offers great protection, as well as a lifetime replacement warranty. The warranty is pretty generous, with the company sending you new screen protectors if you improperly install the first protector, or if you buy a protector that doesn’t fit correctly. If you want to prevent grime, scratches, or dings from messing up your screen, this is a smart investment.

    3. Samsung Galaxy Gear 2

    Check out a hands-on look at the Gear 2 in the video above.

    Sure, you could get the cheaper Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 Neo…but the more premium version of the Gear 2 just feels better against your skin. The Gear 2 has one big feature the Gear 2 Neo lacks: an on-board camera. A camera on watch is one way to feel like a super spy.

    Buy it here.

  • Some reviewers found the software a bit glitchy
  • Somewhat limited app options
  • A bit heavier on the wrist than a Gear 2 Neo
