Pulse-reading earphones, glasses that recognize faces for the blind and the toughest smartwatch around – these are just some of the best gadgets of 2020! Spotted at CES, they impressed us so much that we decided to give them our vote of confidence: TTL awards.
Now, we don’t give these babies up so easily. We look at products that are truly innovative, come up with compelling use cases and offer an outstanding user experience. Affordability is a major factor too, because if it doesn’t end up in your hands, how can it make a difference?
Oh, and maybe the most important thing for us? Impact. How does it affect both you and all of us in the long term.
So, what made the cut?

LG Real 8K OLED series’ record breaking contrast modulation 8K resolution was a decisive factor but the overall package won us over.

Plus, they come with a new AI chip for upscaling image and audio, enabling them to recognize faces and texts, adjusting view quality for both.
