For those who don’t know, Valve’s Steam Deck wasn’t exactly a winner when it launched early last year. However, it’s come a long way since then, leading to a flood of like-minded imitators, even if it technically wasn’t the first portable gaming PC you could get your hands on. It’s still arguably the best way to play games on the go outside of the Nintendo Switch, due in part to its powerful hardware and a set of customizable controls that let you tackle games from numerous decades. In fact, there are now over 10,000 verified and playable titles to choose from, in case your video game portfolio isn’t strong enough.
Obviously, we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that Google is hosting a fall hardware event on October 20, where it’ll unveil a second-generation Pixel Watch with a new sensor array, dust protection, and probably a few others. updates. That said, Google’s first-generation wearable still offers a stylish domed display, Fitbit integration for health tracking, and, most notably, no warnings for non-Pixel Android users, making it a one of the most promising smart watches in recent years. Google could drop the price following the launch of the second-generation model next month, but truth be told, I doubt it will drop below $300 anytime soon.
