Apple Watch Sitting at your desk for hours on end, simply put, is not good for your health. With original features like the “Stand Reminder,” a prompt that gets you to stand up and move every 50 minutes, and new ones like the Sleep app, upgraded fitness app and cycle tracking, the Apple Watch is smarter than ever. You can now pair the series 5 classic Hermès case with any Hermès band. Watches start at $199.


Delter Coffee Press Pictured above, this award-winning portable coffee press is perfect for coffee breaks. Designed with a jet-seal that keeps the water and coffee grounds separated until the brewing starts, it produces a clean-tasting cup of coffee. You can also add more water without starting a new brew, which along with varying the amount and grind of coffee, results in a cup of Joe just the way you like. $40.


Lumecube Video Conference Lighting for Remote Working Traveling for business isn’t coming back anytime soon. Ergo, video conferencing isn’t going away anytime soon either. With the ability to adjust brightness and color, the Lume Cube Panel GO Bi-Color LED Light gives off soft and professional illumination that will help you look your best. The kit also includes a desktop telescoping stand, suction cup mount for desktop or laptop, and charging cable. $69.95.


Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 Being able to hear clearly during a conference call can be difficult if your dog is barking or people are chatting outside your office. These wireless earbuds offer active noise canceling that rivals that of the AirPods Pro as well as the best sound you can find. Improved ergonomics and the slightly smaller size make this latest iteration comfortable for long calls. $299.95


Ten Percent Happier meditation app Scientific research suggests meditation lowers blood pressure, reduces stress and increases focus, all extremely useful in these challenging times. If you want to see how meditation can deepen your capacity for resilience, download Ten Percent Happier, an app that makes learning how to meditate approachable. There’s also the new Ten Percent Happier At Work app that has an easy-to-use system for sharing access with your team.
