New years resolutions are generally defined with the best intentions – I may have already failed at one of mine – but the right tools (and the right resolution, if I'm honest) can make achieving these goals easier.
Naturally, with all the wearables and smartwatches, half of our guide has a fitness theme, but smartwatches can help you form better habits and even remind you to meditate, which I have set up on my Apple Watch this week. .
We also have to-do list app recommendations, cable organization tips (which is a weak New Year's resolution), and help on how to cultivate a new reading habit in 2024.
What are your resolutions for the coming year? And what are you going to do (or buy) to achieve this?

Wireless TV, plug-and-play and new generation solar headsets.
The Engadget team is gearing up for another tour (in military terms) of Las Vegas. CES is back. Along with the glory of huge TVs of all sizes, new self-driving car technologies, and weird robots that will never make it out of tech shows, we've compiled some predictions for all the tech companies and startups planning to attend. We offer next-generation headphones, new display technology and much more.
The show officially runs January 9-12, although we'll be on the grounds well before that. The first CES-related events will begin on January 7, so get ready!

I mean, it has a handle that looks like a crank! The styling betrays the high-tech interior. The CineBeam Qube can project 4K images measuring up to 120 inches, with an RGB laser light source, 450,000:1 contrast ratio and 154% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut.
The price dropped permanently to $249 following the launch of the Quest 3.
Meta is permanently reducing the price of its Quest 2 VR headset to $250 after the launch of the Quest 3, according to Meta's official Quest blog. The Quest 2 has been on sale at this price since Black Friday anyway, but a new official sale price could offer even better deals for the previous generation model in the coming months.
From NASA's Curiosity rover.
NASA's robotic Mars explorers have been given some time off because a natural phenomenon would likely interfere with communications. Before the break, the Curiosity rover was parked – but its hazard avoidance cameras (Hazcams) continued to drift away. At the end of the period, Curiosity recorded the passage of a Martian day over 12 hours from its stationary position, as the sun moved from dawn to dusk.
