What's the best TV for gaming? The best smart speaker? The best electric toothbrush? Here at T3 we spend our time answering these exact questions in a wealth of buying guides where we help you choose the best products across categories including tech, home & garden, fitness, outdoors and much more.

And once a year, the T3 team gets together to choose the very best products in a huge number of categories and then we crown those products worthy winners of the T3 Awards.

This year, the T3 Awards 2020 are sponsored by ExpressVPN and Deezer. The T3 Awards categories are more numerous (there are now 89 categories!) and the range of products covered is even wider. New categories for 2020 include Best Air Purifier, Best Running Watch, Best Air Fryer, Best Coffee Machine, Best Gaming Monitor, Best TV for Gaming and many more.

And this week, we're announcing the winners of those awards, starting right now! You'll find all of the winners below. Note that there are so many winners this year that we'll be announcing them throughout the week, so keep checking back if your favourite category winners have not yet been revealed. Or read on to see the winners that we have announced.

Thank you to ExpressVPN and Deezer for sponsoring the awards and ensuring that they took place this year, and congratulations to all the winners.
