A Watch for Your Smart Phone


We all know it’s not always appropriate to have our smartphone out. You may be in an important meeting, at a play, on a date, or with family. However, you may also be waiting for an important call or need to be reminded of an upcoming meeting. There’s a watch for that.

Cookoo is a cute watch that connects to your smartphone and shows icons based on your activity. Just by casually glancing at the watch, you can be informed of calls, meetings, tweets, email and more.

I haven’t worn a watch since I’ve had a smartphone, but this may change my ways.

Cookoo Connected Watch, $129.95 at DailyGrommet.com.

Happy Geek Pride and Towel Day!

Today’s a doozy–not only is it Geek Pride Day and the 35th anniversary of Star Wars coming out, but it’s also Towel Day on behalf of Douglas Adams, who wrote “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”

Carrying a towel with you will help you be prepared for anything, and this towel in particular will help you out more than most. The Fast-Dry Towel from Discovery Trekking dries fast (hence the name), is antimicrobial and has 93% UV protection. It will keep you warm, dry, protected, and it won’t smell bad or grow bacteria. Can’t beat that!

Fast-Dry Towel, $14.95-29.95 at DailyGrommet.com.

State Cutting Boards

Following the servingware theme, The Daily Grommet featured a new item today: The AHeirloom State Cutting boards. These boards are made of bamboo, and make a great centerpiece for serving cheese or other party treats. All 50 states are available, but poor Hawaii may not be too useful. And if you love Colorado, you may just want to save yourself some money and buy a square cutting board.

The cutting boards are $46 each at DailyGrommet.com.
