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.
From S$1,479; pre-order at OmniDesk, available in Sep 2021
Local gaming table maker OmniDesk has released a new series with the Wildwood+. All tabletops in this series has an 1-inch thickness – a 20 per cent increase over its current offerings – for better strength and durability.
They come with OmniStabilizers, which are reinforced steel bars for improved stability and reduced wobbliness. They also feature OmniAirStrips, which are precision-cut spacers underneath selected Wildwood+ tabletops for more flexibility and space to naturally expand and contract without stressing other parts of the tabletop. The Wildwood+ series will come in two models of Acacia+ and Pheasantwood.
Under Armour SportsMask Featherweight
S$29, available at Under Armour Store
As its name implies, Under Armour’s SportsMask Featherweight is 40 per cent lighter than its predecessor. But it is also cheaper at only S$29.
Yet, the SportsMask Featherweight is still made with a breathable knit fabric water-resistant outer layer, an open-cell foam middle layer that lets air through but not moisture in, and a ISO-Chill inner layer that feels cool to the touch. This is so you can exercise with the mask on but feels like not wearing one.
Uniq Aereo Mag
S$89, available in Uniq Store
Looking for an elegant charging solution for your Apple devices while working from home? Take a look at Uniq Aereo Mag. It is a 3-in-1 magnetic wireless charging pad for your iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods Pro.
Designed to be compatible with MagSafe, it lets you snap your iPhone 12 into place for stable and uninterrupted charging. Its built-in Apple Watch charging stand supports Nightstand mode (Apple Watch charger not included), while another wireless charging pad charges your AirPods or AirPods Pro.
If you have an Arlo doorbell or camera, you might want to add the Arlo Chime 2 to your home setup. It connects to Wi-Fi directly without the need of a base station for an easy wire-free installation. It can transmit instant alerts to any room when plugged in, even if you are not near your phones.
The Chime 2 works in tandem with Arlo doorbells and cameras which are already connected to a base station or directly to Wi-Fi. It also comes with a built-in siren to deter unwanted guests.
