Great List
Great list, and good for most vacations. I especially liked the battery charger and Tile tracker. I know I will date myself, but when we used to hit the beach in the summer, the only electronics we had was a portable am/fm radio. Simplier times, not necessariily better, but easier.

Sync and protect
This is a pretty good list. However, I think the Climate sounds a little silly. It's nice to see data used in this way, but I don't think the device is worth 45 of my dollars.
