Unusual, trendy and just plain weird wearables

Most wearables perform only a few functions. They count your steps, show you the time, or track your heart rate. These unusual devices do much more. For instance, one attaches to your body or your bike and shows you a real-time weather forecast. Another tells you when you are stressed out and should breathe a bit slower. While the Apple Watch gets all of the attention, these gadgets fit into a niche that might just solve a real problem or provide a distinct benefit.

Dell unveils 5K desktop monitor with almost 2x the pixels of your puny 4K display

Dell UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K monitor
What’s 27 inches across and has almost twice the pixel count of your puny 4K monitor? Dell’s new UltraSharp 5K monitor, that’s what. With a resolution of 5120×2880, the 27-inch monster has seven times as many pixels as your 1080p monitor, or four times as many as your 2560×1440 (1440p) monitor. It has a PPI of 218, which puts it on about par with the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display (2880×1800). When it goes on sale around Christmas time — for $2500 — it will finally replace IBM’s mythical 13-year-old T220/T221 as the highest-res desktop monitor.
