The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond

As the clever name suggests, AVI-8 is a watch specialist that make timepieces that commemorate the aircraft, people and history of military aviation. Its latest launch centres on The Falklands War and is a beautiful watch made in collaboration with The Royal British Legion, with money from each sale going to the charity.

A number of colours are available - though some are already sold out - and each watch is made from stainless steel, with a leather strap. Two poppies can be found on the device, one on the crown and one on the third hand, adding to the tribute of those who lost their lives during the conflict some 40 years ago.

Sky has been very busy when it comes to innovations this year. First there was Sky Glass, for those who want that all-in-one Sky experience mounted on their wall. Now comes Sky Stream, a titchy little streaming box that does pretty much everything you need for the full-fat Sky experience, without the need of a bigger box or a dish - that’s because it all works through Wi-Fi.

Sky Stream offers Sky and Netflix in one place, smart search functionality, voice control and a handy restart feature - so you won’t miss the beginning of a show again.

Given that we are coming up to the festive season, many of you will be stocking up on those spirits that will make the celebrations all that more special. We will be making sure that there’s a bottle of Courvoisier Rouge in our drinks cabinet. There’s a beautiful red colour to both the bottle and the spirit and the cognac has great notes of vanilla and dried fruits, mixed with a slight woody-nes.

Haig Club x David Beckham Christmas Bottle

£28

Ah, now the festivities can start with the Haig Club x David Beckham special edition bottle which has a fantastic Christmas design. Inside is the same Haig whiskey but it’s the bottle we are lusting after here, with a Christmas tree design that’s accompanied by football-like baubles that's been designed by none other than Golden Balls himself.

Perfect Draft Pro

£385

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond
Image Credit: Perfect Draft

The Perfect Draft Pro arrived at ShortList Towers just in time for a little celebration we were having, so it was a great opportunity to test this brand-new home keg machine. We were already big fans of the original Perfect Draft but the Pro version really does make you feel like you are pulling pints in your local.

It’s all about precision here, with all-new features which include variable temperature control, app connectivity, faster cooling and the boast of a perfect pour. In our tests, we had no complaints with the beer we were serving and there was far less ‘foam’ waste than the original Perfect Draft created.

Right now, there is a fantastic offer on Perfect Draft Pro, in that you can buy it with the knowledge that if England or Wales with the upcoming World Cup, then Beer Hawk will pay you the price back, with a credit into your Beer Hawk account.

There's also a limited-time chance to get a machine by trading in an old coffee machine. Simply visit the Beer Hawk website and fill in your details. In total, Beer Hawk has 50 PerfectDraft Pro Beer Machines with a free Hawkstone Lager Keg to swap for any 50 working coffee machines.

According to Beer Hawk, entries need to be in by 16/11/2022 and the lucky deal recipients will be selected at random and contacted within 10 working days.

When it comes to the kegs you can use with it, there are over 70 to choose from - including Vocation, Mikkeller, Goose Island and more.

We have been trying out the OPPO Reno8 Pro for a while now and are impressed with the handset. It’s got a 6.7-inch Ultra-Clear AMOLED Screen, super-fast charging - going to 50% in just 11 minutes - and a ton of imaging features. Top of these are the 4K Ultra HDR Video mode, as well as AutoFocus Smart Selfie functionality.

We used the phone to capture images of a recent Champions League game and were impressed with the clarity of the 50MP images - it definitely feels like a phone punching above its mid-range price of £599.

NuraTrue Pro

$299

Once you try a pair of Nura headphones, then it is hard to go back to ‘normal’ earphones. That’s because the ear-mapping technology used by the Australian audio company is so good. Its latest earphones, the NuraTrue Pro have been in our ears for a good while now and we are really impressed with the sound, the noise cancelling and the ease of use of the things.

There’s multipoint pairing on board and they have a really smart design - while they look chunky at first, once in the ear they sit nice and flush with the rest of your face. Battery is decent - we clocked 8 hours from the buds, and another 24 hours charge in the case. While they took a little getting used to, the touch controls are responsive, with the ability to shift between noise cancelling and social mode in seconds.

God Of War Ragnarok

£69.99

2022 may be nearing its end but God Of War Ragnarok has made a late - and ultimately successful bid - for game of the year. Ragnarok is a masterclass of storytelling, by way of brutal fight scenes and some of the best graphics we have ever seen on the PS5.

While it would be good to know the previous story beforehand, there is a small intro for the uninitiated and from there the game will take over your life, with its world exploration, variety of enemies and myth building. Stunning stuff.

Nothing Ear (Stick)

£99

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond
Image Credit: Nothing

Nothing is fast becoming one of our favourite tech brands, with its thoughtful approach to making products that stand out in a very crowded gadget market. The Nothing Ear (Stick) is the second audio goodie it has released, one that forgoes noise cancelling for comfort.

Coming in an innovative and stylish case, these ear buds have been made to rest on the ears for all-day use, with audio clarity that is decent for both music listening and those important calls you need to make.

Kind on the eye and the pocket, the Nothing Ear (Stick) are decent buds that are well worth considering.

Audio-Technica Sound Burger

$199

Audio-Technica may have won 2022 with its new audio release: it’s bringing back its fantastic Sound Burger portable turntable. 40 years ago, the Sound Burger was the must-have gadget for vinyl enthusiasts and now the series is back with an updated model which is blessed with retro looks and some modern-day smarts - including Bluetooth connectivity and a built-in lithium-ion battery with USB-C charging. This will offer about 12 hours of continuous playback - more importantly, 48 flips of a record.

Apple Watch Ultra

From £849 /$799

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond

Apple's push into extreme sports territory will have given Garmin sleepless nights, and for good reason: the Apple Watch Ultra goes big in pretty much all areas. Its screen is bigger, its chassis bulkier thanks to a rugged design and battery life is, yep you've guessed it, the biggest yet from an Apple Watch.

Couple this with a fantastic customisable action button, a new compass and back-tracking feature options and what you have is one of the most exciting Apple products in years.

LAVAIR EXO Reflective trainers

£175

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond

We are big fans of luxury trainer brand LAVAIR. Its AW22 collection recently dropped and we can't help but be enamoured by the EXO Reflective range. This is a special edition of the London-based brand's best-selling EXO range and from our tests we can confirm it's a fantastic-looking and feeling trainer. There is a fair amount of chunk to the sole of the thing, which make something of a statement, but it's the reflective side paneling that makes these trainers truly stand out.

Smeg x Veuve Clicquot fridge

From £2,499

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond

Now, this is the kind of opulence we can get behind. Smeg has teamed up with Veuve Clicquot for its latest collaboration - creating a fridge range that is perfect to store your bottles of bubbly in. The special editions of Smeg's FAB fridge come in two sizes: a mini style and a full-size FAB28 statement fridge. Oh, and we know you want to know so we'll put you out of your misery.

Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Pro

£429 / $449

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond

We've been testing this one for a few weeks now, so look out for a full review soon. But for now, just take our word for it: the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Pro is one of the best smartwatches we have ever tested. If you are an Android user, then there isn't a better wearable out there for you.

It has a fantastic Super AMOLED display, well over two day's battery use, a really nice D-Buckle band and oodles of fitness options for you to choose to help monitor your fitness.

Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless headphones

£299 / $349.99

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond

Sennheiser has completely revamped its over-ear Momentum range. While we kind of miss the industrial-looking cans of the past, the new look is utter class and the Momentum 4 Wireless headphones have a fantastic dollop of audio prowess.

The Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless are some of the most comfortable headphones we have used and one of the longest-lasting, too, at 60 hours between battery charge. The noise cancelling is fantastic, as is the actual sound you can hear. Oh, and it took seconds to set these headphones up - which definitely isn't the case with other wireless headphones on the market!

Sagamore Spirit Signature Rye Whiskey

From £49

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond

We have been taste testing the Sagamore Spirit Signature Rye Whiskey of late and are really impressed. It's a rye whiskey from Baltimore, which is sweeter than from other areas of the US and a perfect base for a Manhattan and Old Fashioned. We found it superb on its own or as part of a whiskey cocktail.

Cocktail-wise, we tried a Sagamore Rye-Garita (45ml Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey, 15ml Orange liqueur, 30ml Lime Juice, 15ml Agave Nectar) and haven't stopped thinking about it since.

Huawei Watch D

£399

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond

The Huawei Watch D was revealed a while back but now we have had confirmation that it is coming to the UK. The Watch D is pretty special as it has the power to measure blood pressure - it's so precise that it's been given regulatory approval for the UK and Europe. It's a USP (no other mainstream smartwatch has this feature) that will catch the eye of many who need to keep their blood pressure in check. The watch does this thanks to its strap which inflates. Impressive stuff. The Huawei Watch D will be available to buy come October.

Focal Utopia headphones (2022)

£4.699 / $5,000

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond

Okay, get ready for your jaw to drop. The Focal Utopia headphones are arguably the best headphones you can get, anywhere. The are open back, so pity whoever is in the room with you when you wear them. But this technology offers the ultimate in sound clarity.

Focal has given its Utopia range a major upgrade for 2022, with M-shaped drivers and M-shaped grilles enabling even clearer and more accurate musical reproduction. They have also been given a lighter, honeycomb design which aids in sound clarity (and looks fantastic, too).

Yes, the Focal Utopia headphones come at a hefty price, but sonically they absolutely won't let you down.

NBA 2K23

From £54

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond

If you are harking for a game that brings back the old-school love of basketball then NBA 2K23. While the graphics have been improved and the gameplay retooled, the standout for us playing the new NBO video game was the Jordan Challenge - something that we haven't seen in an NBA game for over a decade.

This stunning feature is a playable historical timeline of the greatest basketball player who ever lived - 15 legendary games are available - and we loved it. Couple this with other retro delights available throughout and this one is a nostalgia fest that we have had on repeat since launch.

Ruark R2 MK4

The WantList: amazing things to buy this week and beyond

Ruark always make fantastic-looking devices and the Ruark R2 MK4 is of no exception.

Stray is a third-person cat adventure game - yep, that’s a thing - that’s set amidst the detailed neon-lit alleys of a cyberpunk world

You play the stray cat and get to interact with the environment in some really inventive ways. But while it is all cute and lovely at the beginning there are some nasty creatures out to get you. Called Zurks they are vicious and change the whole dynamic of the game when they arrive.

We played on PlayStation - as it is one of the free games from the PlayStation Plus Extra range - and fell in love with this feline adventure. From the sci-fi concept to the purring that comes out of the DualSense Controller, you’ll be hooked.

Atari as a company is 50 years old this year, and this LEGO version of one of its most famous consoles is a joy. You even get to make cartridges of the games to go alongside the console, and there’s some really nice Easter eggs peppered throughout the set.
