CES often grabs headlines for its wacky concept designs and prototype products. But while those types of devices are fun to read about and play with, the sad reality is that very few of them ever make it all the way to market.
Add in all the companies that unveil their “coming this year” gadgets, and it can be really hard to tell which CES products you can actually go to a shop and buy right now.
Don’t worry; we’ve done the hard work for you. Here are the top 10 new CES 2021 devices you can purchase today.
1. Anker Liberty Air 2 Pro Earbuds
Anker has been working hard to develop a presence in the headphones and earbuds sector over the last few years.
Some of the best features include three active noise cancellation (ANC) modes (Transport, Outdoor, and Indoor), 11mm drivers, and an accompanying smartphone app that lets you customize the sound.
2. Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro
On the final day of CES, Samsung held its annual Unpacked event. The biggest news was the release of the Galaxy S21 smartphone, however, the South Korean giant also made waves in the earbuds space with the official release of the new Galaxy Buds Pro.
They have a release price of $ 200 and offer ANC, a voice pickup unit to improve the quality of your calls, automatic device switching, and an IPX7 waterproof rating.
You can buy the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro on Amazon today.
3. MaskFone Face Mask
Face masks were in vogue during CES 2021. Of course, Razer’s futuristic concept design stole the show, but if you’re looking for a model you can pick up today, check out the new $ 50 mask from MaskFone.
As the name suggests, the face mask doubles as a phone. That means you won’t need to take off your protection to have a conversation—a big plus for people who have to regularly field calls in airports, trains, subways, and other enclosed spaces.
The mask itself has built-in earbuds (though they are removable for when you need to wash the mask), as well as playback controls. The controls themselves don’t do anything, you’ll need to align the markings with the in-line remote on your headphones.
You can buy the MaskFone face mask right now.
4. Miiskin Digital Health Platform
Miiskin is a smartphone app and health platform that is designed to help you spot skin cancer early. It will capture the necessary images of your body, and then compare and contrast them with previous images so you can identify changes.
5. Razer Blade Pro 17
However, while all these new laptops will be available within weeks, the best new CES laptop that you can buy at the time of writing is undoubtedly the new Razer Blade 17 Pro. The first units are due to start landing on doorsteps on January 26.
Right now, you can only buy the Razer Blade 17 Pro on Razer’s website. We assume it will soon be available on Amazon as well.
6. Amazfit’s GTE 2e and GTS 2e Smartwatches
Amazfit used CES 2021 to release two new smartwatches—the GTR 2e and the GTS 2e. They are follow-ups to last year’s GTR 2 and GTS 2.
Both new watches have fewer features than their predecessors, but they also have a lower price point. Missing features include Wi-Fi connectivity and internal storage.
The two watches have each gone on sale on Amazon and on Amazfit’s own website.
7. Mio Cyclo Discover
Mio was at CES 2021 to introduce its all-new GPS devices for cyclists—the Cyclo Discover series.
Two devices are available, the regular Discover edition, as well as a more expensive Discover Plus model. Both will clip onto your bike to provide directions.
However, the Cyclo Discover’s best feature isn’t the GPS, but rather the NeverMiss and Surprise Me functionality.
NeverMiss will alert you to places of interest on your ride, and will then provide a QR code for you to scan and find out more information.
SurpriseMe lets you enter a time or distance into the device and it will then provide you with a new route based on your parameters.
The Cyclo Discover series is only supported in Europe. You can buy the device on Mio’s website.
8. An Alexa-Enabled Microwave From Sharp
Sharp was one of the first companies out of the block at CES 2021. It used the CES warm-up event, Techfluence, to unveil multiple new smart kitchen devices.
For many people, the most eye-catching release was a new Alexa-enabled microwave. The Alexa integration means you can use your voice to defrost meat, start/stop the microwave, set the type of food you’re cooking, and more. Some third-party Alexa apps are also supported.
You can pick up the new Sharp microwave on Amazon.
9. Jabra Elite 85t Earbuds
The Jabra Elite 85t earbuds have been available since October 2020, but the company was at CES to release four new colors (gold, copper, black, and grey). At launch, they were only available in titanium.
Considered to be some of the best noise-canceling earbuds on the market thanks to their dedicated ANC chip, they are IPX4-rated for water resistance, are compatible with Qi wireless chargers, and provide 25 hours of battery life via the carry case.
The earbuds are available for purchase on Amazon.
10. Flex IO Sensor
The last product on our list is the new Flex IO Sensor from Alarm.com.
This sensor differs from most smart home security sensors thanks to its support for LTE-M. That means it hooks up to a cell signal rather than your Wi-Fi, and thus greatly increases the range of your system. The device is perfect for securing valuable possessions in sheds, garages, outhouses, and gardens.
The sensor is available to buy right now from selected security suppliers.
