There aren’t many, but lucky for you, we tracked down a few of the best ones and rounded them up for your perusal. Here is the best CES 2019 tech you can buy right now.

Kate Spade Scallop 2 Smartwatch

Kate Spade Scallop 2 Smartwatch review
Andy Boxall/Digital Trends

The new Scallop 2 from Kate Spade takes the latest smartwatch technology and merges it with Kate Spade’s most recent designs. We spent time with the Scallop 2 smartwatch at CES and walked away impressed by both the design and the performance. As a fitness watch, the Spade is no slouch. The smartwatch runs the latest version of Google’s Wear OS, has GPS, supports contactless payments through Google Pay, and is water resistant enough for swimming. Best of all, it’s available now on Kate Spade’s website for $295.

Timed perfectly with CES 2019, Google rolled out several upgrades to the smartphone-based Google Assistant, the company’s artificial intelligence-powered virtual assistant. While most of the features will be added in the coming weeks, one major feature available now is support for Google Maps. That’s right; you now can use “Hey, Google” or “OK, Google to open the virtual assistant in Google maps. You’ll be able to share your arrival time with friends or family, as well as send messages either through SMS or various third-party apps.

Alienware Area-51m (January 21)

Alienware Area-51m review
Joel Chokkattu/Digital Trends

After some hands-on time,  it was clear that Alienware’s Area-51M laptop lead the way in the laptop category at CES. The laptop ships with an overclockable desktop-grade processor and graphics combo that makes the Area-51M as close to a gaming desktop replacement as we have seen. It even allows you to easily swap the hard drive and the proprietary graphics cards whenever you want. With its sloped design and customizable LED lighting, the Area-51M stands out from the crowd, and will be available in late January with prices starting at $2,550. Lower-priced configurations will be coming soon.

Huawei Matebook 13 (January 29)

Huawei MateBook 13 review
Julian Chokkattu/Digital Trends

The Matebook 13 is a solid contender in the thin-and-light laptop category that was pioneered by Apple’s MacBook Air. Introduced at CES 2019, the Matebook 13 falls in the middle of Huawei’s lineup. It’s a step up from the budget Matebook D and is comparable to super slim Matebook X. Matebook’s newest model has a MacBook Air appearance with a striking aluminum alloy casing and metal unibody finish. The narrow-bezel 13-inch display has a 3:2 aspect ration and 2,160 x 1,440 2K resolution for optimal screen real estate. With Intel Whiskey Lake processors on board, the Matebook 13 delivered solid performance during our hands-on testing.

The Huawei Matebook 13 is available in two variants. A model with an Intel Core i5-8265U processor, 256GB SSD, and 8GB RAM will be available on January 29 at Amazon and Newegg with prices starting at an affordable $1,000. Another variant offers the Intel Core i7-8565U processor, Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics, and a 512GB SSD for $1,300.

Razer Turret for Xbox One (Now in stores, online March 31)


Razer took everyone by surprise at CES 2019 by announcing that its recently unveiled Razer Turret wireless keyboard and mouse combo for the Xbox One is available now. Initially revealed in December 2018, the Razer Turret was not expected to go on sale until March. Designed for gaming on the couch, the Razer Turret uses a 2.4GHz wireless connection to connect to your Xbox One and lasts up to 40-plus hours on a full charge. Though it is designed for the Xbox One, the Razer Turret can also be used with a PC. Only a few games (Fortnite, Minecraft, and Warframe) offer support for an external keyboard and mouse — but this list is expected to increase in the future. You can snag a Razer Turret right now for $250 at a Microsoft retail store, or pre-order one online at Razer’s website or Microsoft’s online store.
