  • Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch leaked picture Leaked screen shot of what is allegedly Samsung's answer to Apple's iWatch

     


    With smear campaigns and even legal drama, Apple and Samsung have been at war for some time now. And with a new Samsung phone accessory in development, we know exactly where the next battle will be fought.


    According to Bloomberg, the company is working on a smart watch that could rival the iWatch, a new Apple accessory that's also reportedly in development. And the potential for cut-throat competition between the two companies is already a hot topic, with the Wall Street Journal calling this their "next battleground" and 9to5Mac quipping "the smart watch race is on."


    Samsung Smart Watch leaked screen shot One of the alleged screen shots of Samsung's upcoming smart watch hints at features and a Galaxy name

     


    Samsung has actually confirmed they're working on this fun gadget, but they haven't really revealed anything about it. Still, there's speculation that it may be marketed as part of Samsung's Galaxy line. "One would think that a product like this would fall under the Galaxy naming scheme and be called something like the “Galaxy Watch,” writes MobileSyrup.


    Meanwhile, leaked screen shots obtained by Slashgear that puportedly show the device back that assumption up, with a view of the watch face displaying the name Samsung Galaxy Altius.


    Even though we don't know much yet about the upcoming device, if we judge by existing smart watches, like the Pebble or Sony's SmartWatch, we can make a few assumptions.


    Samsung's smart watch will most likely be a bluetooth-enabled accessory that allows you to view updates and notifications from your phone, and will probably also include features like an actual clock, a calendar and music player.


    Beyond that, it's hard to say. But since the smart watch market is looking a lot like an arms race these days, it's likely that this next Samsung phone accessory surpasses the Samsung-compatible Sony SmartWatch in terms of features. In any case, it'll have to, if Samsung wants to stand a chance in its next bout with Apple.

    Even for Apple devotees who have nothing but praise for their iPhones, battery life is a common concern. But if the above image is something you never want to see on your iPhone again, there are ways to go about it. Plenty of iPhone accessories are designed specifically to help you extend battery life, so you can banich the red low battery symbol from your life forever.


    For everyday use, an iPhone external battery case is probably your best bet. With an extra battery built right in, accessories like Incipio's offGRID line of cases combine the protection of a carrying case with a life-saving back-up battery.

    With models for both iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, the OffGRID Battery Case will double your talk, text, viewing and game time, all in a sleek and compact package that adds surprisingly little extra bulk to your phone. The offGRID for iPhone 5 even features LED lights to let you keep track of battery life.

    But for longer jaunts, say, a week-long camping trip or a vacation abroad, you're probably going to need more than just double the usual battery life. And Dexim's BluePack S8 external battery will give you an additional 11 hours of talk, 21 hours of gaming or video viewing or 92 hours of music.

    Actually compatible with most other phones and devices too, Dexim's is one of the best iPhone battery extenders out there in that it can also be used to power up your iPad and iPod and features LED indicators to let you know how much juice you've got left. Oh, and it's also got a nifty little flashlight built in, so it really is a great iPhone accessory for travelers.


    So, between backup battery packs and external battery cases, there's no reason you should have to worry about that horrible red battery image ever again. Because, whether it's just a typical workday, or a long trip abroad, there's an iPhone accessory that's got your battery life covered.

  • Iron Man Mark VII Case for iPhone 5 from Brando Iron Man Mark VII Case for iPhone 5 from Brando

     


    Apple's design signature has long been about minimalism, elegance, subtlety, and bulging superhero six-packs – wait, what? Oh, we're sorry. We got distracted for a moment there by one of the craziest (silliest?) iPhone 5 accessories we've seen yet. Behold the Iron Man Mark VII iPhone 5 case from Brando.


    With an April release promised, this in-your-face accessory is modeled after the Marvel comics superhero Iron Man, A.K.A. Tony Stark. To be sure, this definitely won't impress iPhone aficionados who love their devices' sleek, understated design.


    Brando_marvel_Iron_Man_Mark_VII_iPhone_5_Case Brando's Iron Man Mark VII iPhone 5 Case: the antithesis of subtlety

     


    But it may just impress die-hard Iron Man fans. After all, its look is a pretty close imitation of  the character's red and gold body armor, and it even comes with a built-in battery-powered LED arc reactor. Now that's something you definitely won't get from average iPhone cases and skins.


    Though as far as iPhone cases go, it's on the low end when it comes to practicality. You've got to flip open a panel just to use the camera, and the overall design is pretty bulky and doesn't seem to have much in the way of grip.


    We won't go so far as calling this fairly ridiculous case "obscene," as did Gizmodo, but we will label it as gaudy. Bulky, over-engineered, impractical and lacking in all subtlety, it goes against pretty much everything Apple strives for in designs like the iPhone 5.


    However, it's more or less exactly what Tony Stark's all about. Flashy, loud and attention grabbing, it's the cell phone accessories equivalent of a spoiled, rich boy genius/self-made superhero.


    Again, the Iron Man Mark VII case will only be released next month, so we can't speak to how tough this iPhone 5 accessory really is. But clad in Iron Man's armored physique, you phone will at least look strong.

  • Otterbox armor series cases for iPhone galaxy S3


    OtterBox carrying cases are already widely credited as some of the world's best . Their protective Defender and Commuter cases are highly reviewed and extremely popular. But even so, the company's been promising something new since 2012 and with their latest OtterBox Armor case for iPhone 5, they've delivered.


    "The OtterBox iPhone 5 Armor Series case is a reinvention of an OtterBox classic that brings protection against water, drops, dust and crushing force," says the company.


    But we feel that's a mild understatement. This super-tough case can actually survive a plunge of up to 6 metres, thanks to metal latches, an o-ring seal, port covers and mesh coverings.

    Since it was only unveiled a little over a month ago at CES, the iPhone 5 Armor case, which is also available for iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S III, is basically the newest thing on the market.


    But already, it's been surrounded by great reviews calling it one of the best. PC Mag listed the Armor case for iPhone 5 in its roundup of the 20 coolest cases at CES.

    And for its part, OtterBox is calling it the toughest case ever built, adding, "This case was made with confidence. We encourage you to use it with some."


    Otterbox has long been a leader in iPhone accessories, and with this latest offering, it looks as though the company intends to keep its crown. As for us, we're thrilled to have the Armor case for iPhone 5 available so early in its release, and we're pretty sure you will be too.

  • Griffin Cinema Seat iPad case


    There's at least one upside to being the passenger in someone else's car – you don't have to keep your eyes on the road. But if watching video with your iPad in you lap already sounds like a sweet deal, just how much better it could be with Griffin's Cinema Seat case for iPad mini.


    As its name suggests, this iPad case is specifically designed for a more cinematic viewing experience. With a wide adjustable strap that can be routed around a car seat headrest, the Cinema Seat in car mount lets you perfectly position your iPad mini for the best backseat viewing.

    And if your chauffeur doesn't appreciate the film score or your video game sound effects, that's alright. Because, even when it's mounted, this smartly designed iPad accessory still allows full access to the headphone jack, as well as to other ports and controls.


    Of course, it's the perfect iPad accessory for long car rides, but the rear strap is great for hand-held video watching too, whether you're commuting by public transportation, or just lying around the house.


    But aside from being a great gadget for video junkies, the Cinema Seat is of course a Griffin product. And that means you can bet it'll be up to the standards of some of their other, top-rated carrying cases, like the Survivor and Protector.


    There are lots of Apple car accessories out there, but none quite so suited to cinematic tastes as the Cinema Seat headrest mount. And any iPad mini user who who loves watching video on their tablet would gladly trade shotgun for one of these any day.

  • LifeProof Waterproof case iPhone 5 Black Mud Puddle


    So, at the risk of a pun, LifeProof has made quite a splash in the past year or so, thanks to its highly effective waterproof Apple accessories. Not too long ago, we reviewed their waterproof carrying cases for iPad and iPhone 4/4S. But today's mobile accessory of the week is LifeProof's long-awaited accessory for iPhone 5.


    The leading maker of waterproof carrying cases has finally put out its iPhone 5 model, and it's just arrived at Pure Mobile. As with LifeProof's versions for older Apple devices, the LifeProof Case for iPhone 5 is not only waterproof, but dirt-, snow-, and shock-proof too.


    LifeProof 130101 Waterproof case iPhone 5 Black LifeProof Waterproof Case for iPhone 5 in Black

     


    If you have any doubts in this area, they may be put to rest by the fact that the LifeProof waterproof case either meets or exceeds tests from both the U.S. and U.K. armies, so it's fully military-grade.


    For such a rugged and resilient case, you might expect something much heavier and bulkier. But the LifeProof case for iPhone 5 is actually quite slim and light, totally in keeping with the design of the device it's intended to protect.


    LifeProof 130102 Waterproof case iPhone 5 White LifeProof Waterproof Case for iPhone 5 in White

     


    Another thing worth noting about aesthetics is that, for an iPhone 5 accessory that could have prospered based on its functionality and practicality alone, some extra effort has been put into looks here.


    Though it's hardly a rainbow of color, it's nice to know that there's at least two color options (black and white) and that the overall look has been kept as simple and streamlined as possible, considering all that this accessory can do.


    We will say this: in the realm of iPhone accessories, the LifeProof carrying case for iPhone 5 isn't cheap. But If you're looking for fully-protective waterproof, shock-proof and drop-proof functionality, it's among the best.

  • ChargeCard iPhone data USB charger The ChargeCard, a credit card-shaped USB charger for iPhone

     


    Oh, no! You're out for the day but forgot your iPhone charging cable at home. The only way anything in your wallet is going to help you now is if you head to the nearest electronics store and pick up an extra Apple phone charger, right?


    Not necessarily, if you've got a ChargeCard. Gizmodo and Mashable reported this week on a new product which originally popped up on Kickstarter but has since found enough funding to start shipping some models.


    The credit card-shaped Apple accessory works like a USB data cable for iPhone 4 or iPhone 5. But, at the thickness of about three regular credit cards, it conveniently fits in your wallet, so you're likely to have it on you at all times.


    For the time being, the makers of the ChargeCard are only starting to ship microUSB and iPhone 4 dock connector models. but they've also got a lightning version for iPhone 5 in the works, as well as models for BlackBerry and Android phones.


    We're not saying that the ChargeCard will totally replace your other iPhone chargers. Obviously, it serves quite a different purpose than, say, an iPhone desktop charger. And, unlike your traditional Apple cable charger, which you can use at any outlet, the ChargeCard needs a USB port to work.


    But it's still a clever accessory and, at its cheap $25 price tag, it's an iPhone accessory that's totally worth it, even as just a backup way of extending battery life.

  • Scosche Chameleon Earbuds with tapLINEII HP65MD2 Blue Green Grey


    Don't get us wrong, we think Apple's headphones are great. The only problem is, you're basically not going to find them in your favorite color, unless of course it's white. But wouldn't it be nice to find some earbuds that not only work with all your Apple gear and sport the same kind of mic and remote your official Apple headphones do, but with a little color choice?


    That's where Scosche comes in. The mobile and cell phone accessories maker is well known for its top of the line audio accessories, from big stuff like car stereos, amps and subs, to little gems, like their Chameleon Earbuds with tapLINE II remote and mic.


    Compatible with pretty much any Apple device made after 2008 – they work with iPhone, iPod and MacBook – the Chameleon Earbuds are aptly named. That's because each pair comes with three different colors of interchangeable caps that you can easily switch out to suit your mood or style du jour. (We especially like them in the blue, green and grey availability, which are truly reminiscent of an actual chameleon.)


    Of course, there's more to these Scosche headphones than just the pretty surface. As you'd expect from any iPhone headphones, they're equipped a remote and microphone in the integrated the tapLINE II control surface. So you can easily switch tracks, play, pause, and control volume, as well as answer and end calls.


    Nevermind that you'll get great sound on the cheap with the Chameleon Earbuds – pretty much the best you'll get from any Apple-compatible earbuds with mic. And, just to make your sound that much better, Scosche even offers a free app called tuneQ, which further enhances your listening experience when you use these colorful headphones.


    For the money, you probably won't find a more colorful, more reliable or higher quality set of headphones for your Apple devices. And fashion chameleons will rejoice in the freedom of color that comes along with these great little earbuds.

  • Griffin GB35452 Survivor iPad 2/3/4 PL/Lavender


    Even when you know what you want, It's nice to have choices. And if you're among the growing number of people who feel Griffin's Survivor case is the obvious choice when it comes to protective carrying cases for iPad, it's good to know your accessory doesn't have to look like everyone else's.


    This week's mobile accessory of the week, the Survivor Case for iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad 4, is among the best, as one would expect from Griffin. Touted as a "military-duty" accessory, it's designed to help your iPad survive even the harshest conditions, from drops, shocks and vibrations to sand, dirt and rain.


    Griffin GB35111 Survivor iPad 2:3 Acid GReen Black Griffin Survivor Case for iPad 2/3/4 in Acid Green and Black

     


    With a rigid internal frame that has survived test drops of 6 feet on concrete, and a shock absorbing silicone outer than can withstand vibrations of up to 2,000 MHz for hours on end, you know the Survivor iPad case can handle whatever your tablet is going to face in an an ordinary day.


    And design details, like an integrated screen protector, multi-position kickstand, and easy-to-open port sealer show just how much thought Griffin has put into this iPad case.


    But what's extra nice is the fact that, unlike some other great iPad carrying cases, the Survivor doesn't just come in standard black or white. Instead, men and women alike will find tons of choice when it comes to color.


    From a punky acid green and black combo, to a sweet and regal lavender and purple mix, to the very sporty black and royal blue model, this is one iPad Case with many different personalities.


    Griffin GB35380 Survivor iPad 2/3/4 BK/Royal BL Griffin Survivor Case for iPad 2/3/4 in Black and Royal Blue

     


    It's one thing to find all the specs you need for the best possible iPad protection, and quite another to find all that along with great styling and design. But with their Survivor Case for iPad, Griffin's thought of it all. And that's what makes it our top pick for mobile accessory of the week.
