Every week, there are plenty of new products emerging in the consumer tech realm. At times, it becomes impossible to cover all of them. Here, we pick the new products of the week and deliver them to you in bite-size format.
Creative Outlier Air V3
S$99, available in Creative Store
Local audio brand Creative Technology just launched its latest pair of true wireless in-ear headphones with the Outlier Air V3. It has been re-designed with a sleeker and better-fitting form factor.
In addition, these sweat-proof earbuds are lighter but come with better audio quality, battery life and ambient noise control than its predecessors. A new Creative app offers you a higher level of personalisation such as equaliser adjustments or awareness
myFirst Fone R1
S$229, available in myFirst Store
Singapore’s children gadget brand myFirst has launched the Fone R1, a smartwatch phone designed for kids between the age of 4 and 13. It is packed with features such as 2-megapixel camera, alarm, GPS, fitness tracker and integrated SOS button.
Perhaps, the most important feature that parents want is Geo-Fencing, where they can set up safety zones the child is allowed to travel in. Not to mention, you can get the Fone R1 for free if you subscribe to the unlimited data/voice plan for S$28 per month (minimum contract of 12 months).
Viewsonic ColorPro V2768a
S$849, available in Lazada
For creative professionals who need a monitor with out-of-the box colour accuracy, they should consider Viewsonic’s ColorPro V2768a. This 27-inch monitor comes with validation from Pantone, the colour standard for all designers.
It has been evaluated and met the requirements to be Pantone validated by passing the full range simulation test of 2,161 colours of the Pantone Formula Guide. It comes with one-cable USB-C solution, so it can deliver video and audio efficiently as well as providing up to 90W of charging.
Apple Magic Keyboard with Touch ID
S$199, available in Apple Store
Previously available only with the new M1 iMac, you can now buy Apple’s Magic Keyboard with Touch ID separately. The Touch ID on the right-hand corner of the keyboard allows for fast, easy and secure authentication for logins and purchases.
It also comes with a woven USB-C-to-Lightning cable that lets you pair and charge the keyboard. Otherwise, it is still the same Apple Magic Keyboard we know with a one-month-long battery life.
Native Union Rise Laptop Stand
S$59, available in Ante Store
If you are not inclined to get a laptop stand as you find it a hassle to bring it to and fro office, get the Native Union Rise Laptop Stand instead. This foldable laptop stand sticks (via adhesive gel) to the bottom of your laptop so you can use it wherever you go.
Its origami-inspired fold can elevate your laptop to an optimum viewing angle of 20 degrees for improved posture when working. In addition, it is super lightweight and measures only 2.5mm thin. You will not feel that it is even there.
