I use a Windows 10 Lenovo laptop as my main machine, and it’s light enough (3 pounds) to travel with too. My primary phone is a Google Pixel XL that running Android 10. I also have a Samsung S9 running Android Pie by way of and Samsung UI and an iPhone 6 running iOS 11. (Gotta know all the mobile platforms.) To track my steps, I wear a Garmin VivoSport + GPS fitness band. I also used my Google Daydream VR headset to watch some 2018 Winter Olympics events.
