On today’s edition of Up To Speed, host Raquel Wilson and other members of our communications team showcased some of our latest tech and travel perks – just in time for summer!

Time to get a watch

The Fitbit Versa 2 is your all-day fitness companion for recording workouts, heart rate zones, sleep patterns and more.

This lightweight and durable watch has a battery life of up to four-plus days, storage for up to 300 songs (no phone required), 15-plus exercise modes, built-in Amazon Alexa voice control, and more.

More than just a charger

The mophie powerstation’s “go rugged” model with an air compressor isn’t just a powerful charger: It’s a device designed for emergencies.

This portable battery not only can charge up to 2 USB-A devices with built-in power ports, but also can deliver up to 1200 amps, so you can easily jump a full-sized truck or a 12-volt vehicle battery. The battery’s built-in air compressor features interchangeable nozzles and an adjustable pressure setting, so you always get the pressure level you need. And it includes a bright LED floodlight, so you can see and be seen.

Your smart glasses solution

If you’re in the market for some smart lenses, consider the Razer Anzu Smart Glasses, whose blue-light filtering and polarized smart lenses shield your eyes and reduce eyestrain to help you feel fresh and focused.

The glasses’ Bluetooth capabilities can connect you to your favorite music, with up to five hours of battery life. And the built-in mic and speakers allow for hands-free communication.

Peace and quiet

Whether you’re working from a crowded space, listening to your favorite music or need some peace while traveling, chances are you can benefit from a pair of headphones. The MDRZX110NC Noise-Canceling Wired On-Ear Headphones are a great option.

These comfortable, lightweight headphones have a swivel, folding design for easy travel. They’re also noise-canceling (reducing ambient noise by up to 95 percent) and have up to 80 hours of battery life.

Verizon Visa Card

Designed with Verizon wireless customers in mind, the Verizon Visa Card is the only credit card that lets customers earn rewards in the form of Verizon Dollars on everyday purchases, including 4 percent at grocery stores and gas stations; 3 percent on dining, including takeout and delivery; 2 percent on Verizon purchases; and 1 percent on all other purchases at places where Visa credit cards are accepted.

Verizon Dollars can be used to book flights, hotel rooms and rental cars; to buy gift cards for your favorite brands; or to get in on the latest tech. You can even use them to pay your Verizon bill. Plus, Verizon Dollars never expire, and there’s no annual fee!


Verizon's 5G Do More and 5G Get More plans give you one day of TravelPass each month, which means you can take your talk, text and data with you to more than 210 countries and destinations.

To add TravelPass, use the MyVerizon app, or text TRAVEL to 4004.
