Gearing Up For Your Travels. Travel Smart-High-tech gear for a memorable trip.


The next time you’re looking to get away from it all, be sure to bring the right gear with you. Here’s a look at some high-tech travel must-haves:

Capture The Memories

The right digital camera can help you relive your trip over and over again. For instance, Casio’s Exilim EX-Z600 camera offers 6.0-megapixel, high-resolution photos in a pocket-sized package for easy packing and portability. It fits right into a shirt pocket if you don’t want to risk looking like a tourist by hanging it around your neck. The camera’s 2.7-inch LCD screen is about three times brighter than previous Exilim models, perfect for viewing in the sunny outdoors, and its rapid-flash function allows users to take three consecutive high-speed shots in less than a second, so users don’t miss those memorable action shots. It’s also equipped with eBay mode so you can automatically take e-mailable-sized photos to share right from your vacation. A really cool accessory allowed by the camera’s compatibility is a separately sold underwater camera case (ECW70), ideal when snapping shots in the water while scuba diving or snorkeling, or even in the rain.

Watch Your Schedule


Travelers can keep to a busy vacation schedule in style with a newly released Sweet Poison by Baby-G watch (MSG161C), which keeps World Time. With 100M water resistance to accommodate underwater photo taking, don’t forget to strike a pose in this versatile watch that adds a splash of spunk to almost any multipurpose vacation outfit.

You can also look stylish while visiting new places (and still have the most perfect time in the U.S.) with this energy-efficient Casio Waveceptor Atomic-Solar WV300DA, with a luxurious black dial. Or you can opt for a more casual G-Shock G540, which features World Time, an auto calendar and four daily alarms, so you’ll know when it’s time to move on to your next sight-seeing excursion.

These watches make attractive, multifunctional yet durable travel companions.
