This month, we're going to help you express amour the techie way.

popSLATE Phone Case
This is magic in an iPhone case. The popSLATE ($129) for iPhone 5, 5S, and 6 protects your phone just like other cases, but it also gives that phone a second screen without killing battery life. The popSLATE app lets you put vital information on the popSLATE eink case screen that resides on the back of your phone. Send maps, boarding passes, to-do lists, or even the photos that get you through the day to the popSLATE screen, and don't give a second thought to how much "regular phone" battery you're using.

Fitbit Stud Bracelet
I don't mind rocking the Fitbit when I'm going for a run, but when it comes to wearing the activity tracker during the day, I'd like to keep it a little more discreet. Enter: Bezels & Bytes, a new line of Fitbit Flex fashion featuring beautiful stud bracelets (seen here, $78) and stunning pendant necklaces ($88). This particular bracelet features 12K gold studs and a black leather band. Unfortunately, the Flex isn't included. The chic jewelry is now up for grabs on Indiegogo, where the company has raised $16K of $20K, with over 20 days left to go. Go support if you dig 'em!
