Good news—summer is just around the corner!

Best Products of 2015

What are the hottest summer products out on the market this year? Let’s take a look.

The Apple Watch

Make sure you’re on time for your kid’s swimming lessons and soccer games with what may be the most highly anticipated product launch of the summer. Pre-orders for the Apple Watch kicked off at the beginning of April, and according to reports, several models have already sold out. The high-tech watch boasts a sleek aesthetic with stainless steel, aluminum and gold finishes, and six watchbands.

The Solar-Powered Edyn Garden Sensor

One of the best parts about summer is being able to enjoy all the freshly grown produce plucked right from your backyard garden. From juicy strawberries to fresh tomatoes, there is no greater summer joy than harvesting your own fruits and veggies. Now, you can take your backyard garden up a notch with the Yves Behar-designed Edyn Garden Sensor, which provides professional and amateur gardeners with soil readings, plant recommendations, and customized tips.

“I knew I wanted to use technology to help farmers, but I did not know this would be a sensor technology,” explains Jason Aramburu, the mastermind behind the product. “In 2012, I was managing thousands of acres of field trials across Kenya. I needed to keep track of how different soil amendments were affecting soil moisture. I could not find any sensor technology that was affordable, so I set about creating Edyn.” The sensor works with a specially designed iOS app to provide readouts of soil conditions and fertilizing and watering tips. The good news is that you’ll be able to find the sensor in stores this May!

Essax Shark Saddle

For all cycling enthusiasts looking to get on their bikes this summer, the Essax Shark Saddle is making waves throughout cycling circles. Definitively one of the summer’s most innovative products and probably one of the most unique bike saddles on the market, the Essax Shark Saddle claims to optimally distribute a rider’s weight for a super comfortable ride. “The technology that has gone into the Essax Shark saddle is the ‘AF-Net Matrix’. This technology is applied to the shell of the saddle, with Essax claiming this makes the saddle 4.7 percent more efficient, 37 percent more rigid and 70 percent more resistant to dynamic fatigue compared to identical,” Cycling Weekly reports.
