IFA 2022 represents the first full-scale, in-person trade show in years. The manufacturers, media, and public are back in a big way and we spent the first few days of the show scouring the show floor for the best products in the categories we cover (and covet). Without further ado, here are the best products we found at IFA 2022.

Phones

Honor 70

At IFA 2022, Honor announced its striking mid-ranger, the Honor 70. The Honor 70 looks and feels great and it’s the first phone with the Sony IMX800 image sensor. But what really sets it apart from the modern smartphone crowd is that it’s actually priced reasonably, at just €549 (8GB+128GB)/€599 (8GB+256GB) and we think that makes the Honor 70 a wise investment in these inflationary times. Available now on Honor’s website.

Sony Xperia 5 IV

Announced just prior to IFA, the Sony Xperia 5 IV is essentially a smaller, cheaper version of the flagship Xperia 1 IV. We loved its compact size, a rare characteristic these days, but despite being smaller than the 1 IV, it has a larger battery. It may not have the flagship’s variable focal length camera but it has 4K 120fps video and Sony’s best-in-class eye auto-focus on all rear lenses. And these sound like pretty decent compromises to us. You’ll be able to get it from Amazon come end-September.

Wearables

Garmin Venu Sq 2

When the Venu Sq line first appeared, it took the popular Venu recipe and replaced the OLED with an LCD to cut the price almost in half. Now, the Venu Sq 2 increases the price by just $50 but brings the OLED panel back. That’s a pretty amazing trade-off and well worth it for anyone wanting to experience the outstanding tracking Garmin is renowned for. You can buy one now for $249.

Fitbit Sense 2

The Fitbit Sense 2 is one of the most eagerly awaited follow-ups to a new wearable product line. Featuring a new continuous electrodermal activity (cEDA) sensor for automatic stress testing, a refined UI, and the same great price as the original ($299), we can’t wait to get our hands on the Sense 2. The Sense 2 goes on sale on September 23, with pre-orders open now.

Huawei Watch D

We’ve seen a few blood pressure wearables with an inflatable cuff but the Huawei Watch D is the first one we’d actually consider wearing every day. It’s only a little bit chunkier than most smartwatches but houses a tiny pump to inflate the strap — this means it never needs calibration. This is a major breakthrough in personal health tech and it just received regulatory approval to go on sale in Europe. More details here.

TCL NxtWear S

If you like next-gen wearables you’re going to love the updated TCL NxtWear S. With two 1080p Micro OLED displays you can enjoy a private cinematic experience anywhere you go. We dig the physical controls for volume and brightness and the improved visual resolution and audio quality. It’s hard to make an AR monitor you wear on your face look good, but TCL has done an admirable job with the NxtWear S.
