Canon EOS R50
Sony A7C II
Garmin Epix Pro (Gen 2)
We’ve been wearing this Garmin for four months. It’s a huge, but hugely impressive, all-action premium smartwatch.
THE BEST IS SWEAT TO COME
Getting out and exercising in the opening months of the year can feel bleak, but you're not on your own: we've groaned and grunted on the latest training gear to help you achieve the fitness results you're looking for
SMART SPEAKER OF THE YEAR - SONOS MOVE 2
Sonos might not be the first name that springs to mind when you think of smart speakers, but with not one but two voice assistants on board - Amazon's Alexa and Sonos's own anonymous helper - there's no doubting the Move 2's built-in brain power.
ELECTRIC CAR OF THE YEAR - VOLVO C40 RECHARGE
The first Volvo in SA that was only available in an EV format, this crossover balances in-car features with its all-electric nature and delivers a pleasing meld of the power you'd expect from a car that costs over a million and range that makes filling a gas tank seem like the relic of a past left forgotten.
DRONE / ACTION CAM OF THE YEAR INSTA360 GO 3
If the goal of an action camera is to be as lightweight and portable as possible (all the better to be mounted on your bike, head, body, surfboard or big toe), then the tiny Insta360 Go 3 is the best one around.
CAMERA OF THE YEAR FUJIFILM X-T5
Smartphone cameras may be improving all the time, but they still have nothing on a tool built specifically for the job. And in a year of excellent camera releases, this all-rounder stood out for us.
IN-EAR HEADPHONES OF THE YEAR SONY WF-1000XM5
For several product generations now, Sony has hogged the top of the tree when it comes to active noise-cancelling true wireless headphones.
AFFORDABLE HEADPHONES OF THE YEAR - ANKER SOUNDCORE VR P10
Anyone still harbouring metaverse ambitions would do well to pay attention to Anker's virtual reality-ready VR P10 buds. Gamers in general and Nintendo Switch owners in particular should also be looking over here.
OVER EAR HEADPHONES OF THE YEAR - FOCAL BATHYS
STUFF AWARDS 2023
The bad news is that everything is terrible and humanity seems to be spiralling towards several different varieties of destruction at once. The good news is that some great tech came out last year - and it's time for Stuff to reveal the very best. See, you've forgotten about the bad news already...
2023 GADGET OF THE YEAR - SONOS ERA 300
THE SONOS ERA 300 GLEEFULLY SERVES UP TRANSFORMATIVE SPATIAL AUDIO THAT COULD JUST SIGNAL THE START OF A NEW...ERA.
AFFORDABLE TABLET OF THE YEAR AMAZON FIRE HD 8 KIDS PRO
PREMIUM TABLET OF THE YEAR - APPLE IPAD PRO
No, bigger doesn't always mean better, especially when it comes to what is ostensibly a portable device - but Apple's 12.9in tab is large and in charge.
All I have to do is stream
Sony's new handheld looks like a portable PS5 but is useless on its own. Can its remote play capabilities be worth the cash?
BRAIN ON THEIR PARADE
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
How do you follow a classic that not only tore up the Legend of Zelda rulebook but set a new gold standard for open-world game design? If you're Nintendo, you go large - very large indeed...
Whether you’re after an all-in-one device or want to connect to beefier hardware, here are the finest VR headsets of 2023
With PS5s finally in good supply, it's about time to up your game with some elite-tier additions - whatever your playstyle

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
Home entertainment can be a touch overwhelming, with so much choice and with terms like 'variable refresh rate' and 'dimming zones' being thrown at you, it can leave the most patient of punters flummoxed. It's not only about screens.
If you want to remember your summer holiday forever, leave room in that suitcase for a specialist camera. Who needs underpants anyway?
Forget trashy airport novels – slip one of these transportable time-sinks into your carry-on and banish holiday boredom forever
Seven knows I'm admissible now
Despite its epic photo skills, last year’s ‘budget flagship’ Google Pixel 6a was outclassed in other areas – but the 7a is ready to hang in the smartphone VIP zone
TAG HEUER CONNECTED GOLDEN BRIGHT
THIS IS TAG HEUER'S FIRST CONNECTED SMARTWATCH TO COME INGOLD
ON THE ROAD AGAIN
Sunglasses, guide book, ironic hipster Count Duckula T-shirt? Yep, you’re just about all packed – but don’t forget to bring a gadget companion or two along on your big trip…
HERE'S TWISTIER MOW-IT-ALL
