A Man’s Guide to On-the-Go Essentials
Our ever-connected, everything-on-demand world moves at a frenetic pace, and while there’s wisdom in slowing it down, much of it is inevitable, and it’s up to us to keep up. Sometimes, the key to keeping up with the pace—and even staying ahead of it—is choosing the right set of tools. Here are what we recommend:
An understated money clip
Wallets are great, sure. But take a money clip out for a spin and you might just become a convert. There’s less bulk involved, so it’s easier to slip into your pocket (no unsightly bulges). If you don’t keep a lot of bills on you, give the money clip a shot.
A pen that means business
Always be ready to write something down: minutes of the meeting, reminders, fleeting ideas, your signature, and even phone numbers. Yes, there are apps for these things, but nothing beats old-school practicality.
Your car keys
This should go without saying. Because how else are you supposed to get around when public transportation is in such a state of disarray?
The earphone jack is dead, and all your cabled headphones and earphones have been supplanted. Embrace the wireless future of enjoying music and you’ll find that it isn’t so bad.
A phone that does everything
Make sure it's functional, has the processing power and storage space to keep up with all your needs, and will last you at least a whole day on one charge. A great camera that takes great photos is also a big plus.
Despite long battery lives and full charges, your electronics are going to need backup if you’re going to rely on them for work. Leave no room for Murphy’s Law to rear its ugly head.
Modern watch aficionados say that the least important thing a watch does these days is tell the time. The Huawei GT Active Edition smartwatch is the loyal companion of those who wants to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. It monitors your heart rate in real time, so you can track progress and keep tabs on your ticker. It lets you monitor your sleep, too, using Huawei TruSleep™ 2.0. It also has Triathlon Mode and Multi-Sport Mode, plus a 3 Satellite Positioning System for when you’re really on the move. And like any great watch, the GT Active Edition has personality (it comes in three new colors, plus its face is customizable) and is functional (it lasts two weeks on one charge, and is water-resistant). Best of all, it keeps you connected to your other Huawei devices, so you’re always in-sync.
A lightweight laptop
Yeah, your phone can do it all—but you still need a laptop on which to really crunch your output: reports, presentations, even meetings. Nothing beats having a portable computer to work with, especially if it’s lightweight, powerful, and sleek. The Huawei Matebook 13—a super slim laptop with everything you need under the hood: graphics powered by an NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 with 2 GB GDDR5; processing power for days; and a FullView 2K Display. It also has a full suite of accessibility features, including a One Touch power button and Huawei OneHop, which lets you transfer files between Huawei devices seamlessly. Consider the Matebook 13 an excellent central hub that ties all your devices together.
Pack these before you head out the door every day and you should be ready to face life at a faster pace while still staying stylish. In case you need further proof of that, check out this video:
