When it comes to smartwatches, there is a growing number of models that not only work great, but they look elegant and understated as well. Fossil has just added another member to their smartwatch family with the introduction of the Fossil Sport Smartwatch. It will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform and run on the newly redesigned Wear OS by Google, enabling it to offer a slew of new technology features such as extended battery life, a new battery saving mode, enhanced ambient mode, integrated heart rate, NFC, and GPS capabilities.
I believe that many of us who grew up around computers were exposed to a flat screen monitor, although for the older generation, fat and chunky CRTs were the flavor of the day. Modern day technology has seen how curved displays have taken over the visual department in living rooms all over the world, and the same has started to infiltrate the computer monitor industry. AOC, a worldwide leader in monitor display technology, has recently announced the C32V1Q. The C32V1Q is an immersive curved 32-inch monitor that has been specially built for work and home entertainment, with an asking price of a relatively affordable $229 — pretty much within the price range of a decent 32-inch TV actually.
When the name MSI is mentioned, most of the time people would think of gaming notebooks as well as high-powered desktops that are able to churn out consistently high frame rates at excellent graphical quality. However, who would have thought that the Taiwan-based company would actually branch out to offer a little bit of something on the side? I am referring to the Mystic Knight gaming backpack, being an extremely versatile tech pack complete with more than enough storage space to stash a laptop of your choice, its accompanying gaming gear as well as other essential items that you bring about on your daily commute and workflow.
The smartwatch market continues to evolve, with high street brand names jumping aboard the bandwagon as well. Casio’s pedigree in the field of horology has been proven time and again, and their latest attempt in an Android-powered smartwatch that will not shirk at the sight of adventure would be the Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20A. Following Japanese wisdom, this is the second iteration of an outdoor Android-powered timepiece by the Japanese company, targeting those who live an active lifestyle and want a rugged timepiece that does more than just keep track of time.
Xiaomi has worked their way to be the 4th largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, and their mid-range smartphones continue to straddle the comfortable level between price and performance. While the Redmi Note 5 is not the newest device on the block in this category, it has aged well over the past half year. Here is a review of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 for those who would like a highly functional smartphone without having to take out a second mortgage on their home.
Interaxon Inc. is the company behind the Muse, which is a brain sensing headband that certainly raises an eyebrow or two. Over time, this has led to the launch of the Muse 2, which is a revolutionary device that functions as a personal meditation assistant. The Muse 2 has been specially designed in order to provide real-time feedback on brain activity, but it does not stop there. It will also help deliver similar feedback in terms of body movement, breathing patterns and heart rate when one meditates.
SteelSeries is no stranger when it comes to gaming peripherals, and their latest foray does not lie so much in high tech hardware but something that often goes unappreciated or unnoticed: the humble mousepad. No matter how sensitive a particular gaming mouse’s sensor is, it’s performance can be helped through the proper mousepad. SteelSeries has just the thing in mind by expanding its iconic QcK mousepad range that comprises of the new QcK Edge, QcK Prism Cloth, and QcK Hard.
Whenever you purchase a brand new smartphone, there are normally two accessories that should never be negotiated or given a pass: the screen protector as well as a protective case. Many modern day smartphones, even from the mid-range segment, happen to feature a full aluminum body that is nice to look at, but all too slippery when handled. A protective case not only provides an adequate amount of grip, but it will also help prevent unwanted scratches or worse damage when knocked or dropped. The Soundflow is a special proposition where it not only functions as a smartphone case, it also doubles up as a wireless earbuds carrier and charger.
Not all wireless headphones are created equal — some are more unique than the others, bringing with it a slew of features that you will not be able to find anywhere else. SHIVR, a leading brand of high fidelity personal audio devices, has recently announced the launch of its very own SHIVR noise cancelling 3D wireless headphones for those who would want to enjoy a whole new immersive experience when it comes to audio, home theatre, and gaming.
When it comes to portable speakers, there are many different models to choose from. After all, there are different speakers for different kinds of situations, but most outdoor speakers tend to take on a tougher persona than usual for an obvious reason: there is a higher chance of being exposed to the elements, hence a certain degree of water resistance and shock resistance. Treblab has come up with the Treblab HD77 portable speaker that is specially meant to be carried around with you when you indulge in outdoor sports activities, in line with the company’s sports oriented vision.
