My first connect-wall was too easy; here is a hard one, as promised.

There are four categories of five words each:

wetsuit crystal blue lie
sink wire bear aura
barcode marker swiss LED
gate syrian airbag hail
saga relay duck IC

Enjoy!

Hints:

  1. Time to get innovative! (Maybe the clock will be your Bain?)

  2. You can replace "syrian" with "tulum"

  3. Wired in by now?

Possibly?:

A

Electronic components: ic (Integrated Circuit), led (Light Emitting Diode), gate, relay, wire, possibly crystal instead

B

Actions: duck, lie, sink, possibly hail, bear, and relay

C

Airlines: Blue, Swiss, Syrian, possibly Aura and Saga

Which leaves

wetsuit, barcode, marker, airbag, and possibly hail, bear, relay, crystal, aura, and saga

  • $\begingroup$ I'm afraid they are all wide of the mark, sorry! By the way, "gaye" is "gate" in the puzzle. $\endgroup$
