Top 3 Gears of 2019: Xiaomi WCJ02ZM Wireless Car Charger, DJI Osmo Mobile 3, Amazfit Stratos 3

Car Hardware of the Year: Xiaomi Wireless Car Charger

Xiaomi WCJ02ZM Infrared Sensor Wireless Car Charger



With more and more mobile phones equipped with wireless charging, the shape of car charging is changing accordingly. Wireless car chargers are a popular type of car hardware this year. 

They combine the function of both a phone holder and a wireless charging pad, and the inductive clamp arm can open automatically upon sensing an approaching phone, thereby providing convenience and continuous phone charging during navigation.

Tech Insider has tried out many wireless car chargers this year, and we believe Xiaomi’s stands out from the crowd. It has good workmanship and functional experience, and features many intimate details.

For instance, the circular light ring lights up after being powered on, making it much more convenient to use at night. It also has a port at the bottom for non-wireless phone charging. It’s worth mentioning that when connected with the Mi 9, the wireless charger is able to offer 20W high-power wireless charging.

Besides the above advantages, the Xiaomi wireless charger also provides a complimentary customized adapter and a paste base, which further enhances its competitiveness. 

The Xiaomi wireless charger is a classic example of a brand that takes mobile phones as its starting point and applies its advantages in product interaction and supply chain to other peripheral products.

Phone Accessory of the Year: DJI Osmo Mobile 3

DJI Osmo Mobile 3 Mini Handheld Foldable Gimbal Stabilizer



Using mobile phones to capture and record daily life has become one of the everyday pleasures for many people in recent years, and this has led to the gradual popularity of vlogs. A mobile phone gimbal is becoming more and more indispensable as a tool for creating vlogs. 

A good mobile phone gimbal can help creators focus on the story it wants to portray. With the launch of the Osmo Mobile 3, vlog enthusiasts now have another fine creative tool to get hold of.

Compared with its predecessor, the most remarkable change with the Osmo Mobile 3 is the foldable design, which makes it easier to carry. When folded, the mobile gimbal is about the same size as the palm of your hand, and it can easily fit in a small bag. 

Furthermore, due to the spring buckle added to the shaft arm of the gimbal, the Osmo Mobile 3 will not shake when folded. It is intimate details such as this that make the difference.

In contrast to the vertical design of the previous two generations, the Osmo Mobile 3 has a 15° angled handle to improve grip during everyday recording. In addition, DJI has updated the charging port from a micro-USB to type-C for greater convenience.

Software improvement is another highlight. The DJI Mimo app comes with more than a dozen video shooting templates for video fans, so you can easily shoot short videos with a rich variety of effects. 

Moreover, Active Track 3.0 is also very practical. It can accurately identify subjects using both the front and rear cameras, which makes shooting sports scenes more convenient.

The Osmo Mobile 3 has improved a lot when compared to its predecessor. A smaller frame and a greater variety of usage methods allow users to shoot and create videos outdoors. 

In the era of vlogs, the Osmo Mobile 3 appears to have taken a small step in adopting a foldable design, but it is a significant step for bringing greater convenience to many users.

Smart Watch of the Year: Amazfit Stratos 3

Amazfit Stratos 3 Smart GPS Sports Watch 1.34 inch Screen 5ATM Waterproof Multi-sports Modes BioTracker Heart Rate Monitor MP3 Player Global Version



Digital enthusiasts fond of outdoor sport often find it’s a trade-off between having a smart watch or a sports watch. However, this year in 2019, the Amazfit Stratos 3 launched by Huami has provided us with a new outlook as it attempts to integrate these two types.

The Amazfit Stratos 3 is equipped with a 1.34-inch full round transflective display that supports Always on Display. This customized transflective screen makes it readable under bright sunlight. In fact, the brighter the light, the clearer the screen. 

The four physical buttons allow greater control of the watch without needing to touch the screen when sweating during exercise, and the watch also supports 50m waterproofing. All these features enhance the watch in specific scenarios and make it more adaptive to more complex sports environments.

In addition to everyday sports such as running and cycling, Amazfit Stratos 3 provides sports modes such as triathlon and compound sports. The 19 different sports modes also combine with Firstbeat algorithms to provide users with professional data such as maximum oxygen intake, exercise performance, sports compounds, etc. 

Plus, with the BioTracker™ heart rate sensor independently developed by Huami, the smart watch provides professional data analysis and helps users avoid excessive exercise.


To address the requirement for long outdoor battery life, the Amazfit Stratos 3 features two built-in main control chips. This setup enables the user to run two separate modes: Smart and Ultra Endurance

The former supports all functions and a battery life of up to 7 days, and the latter reduces power consumption while maintaining basic functions, providing a battery life of 14 days. In addition, the watch can provide up to 70 hours of battery in sports scenarios which require continuous GPS tracking, such as marathons and triathlons.
