FROM GYM TO STREET
Available in a selection of four bright and cheerful colors, the WF-SP700N is built to complement your gym wear. They come with noise-cancelling and true wireless capabilites so there’s nothing to get in the way of your choice of workout - whether that be a run on the track or a run at your nearest rock wall.
A WATCH FOR THE SAMURAI
This new addition to the flagship MR-G series is inspired by the tetsu-tsuba (iron sword guard) on Japanese swords. Tetsu-tsuba are known for the bold indentations hammered into the iron. You’ll notice the bezel and center rows on the MRG-G2000HA are treated to achieve a similar texture. The colors of the watch are inspired by the deep violet and copper used in traditional Japanese craft.
Don’t be fooled. What looks like a car engine is actually one of the coolest espresso machines you’ll ever see. And why not? Fuel for the mind should look like it came from a high-performance machine. The Espresso Veloce V12 is handcrafted from magnesium, titanium, and aluminum, modeled after a 12-cylinder engine. Your coﬀee has never tasted more high-octane.
Go old-school with some class. The Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens resurrects the 1839 Chevalier Achromat Lens and its classic aesthetic. The new gold-plated edition also comes with a set of gold-plated aperture plates, which produces dreamy bokeh eﬀects and stunning lens flares.
With its perefectly polished and anodized piano black finish, the limited edition BeoSound 1 will certainly stand out as a statement piece in any home. And that’s before you start playing music with it. Built with special Acoustic Lens Technology where the driver is placed on top of the speakers and played into a reflector for true 360-degree sound, this wireless speaker can be placed anywhere and you’ll still enjoy the same great sound.
A CLASSIC REVISITED
Based on the popular design from the early 90s, the new Earset gains Bluetooth capabilities and a new inline remote with microphone that lets you control your playback and take calls without having to pull out your phone. Get perfect fit easily and enjoy great B & O sound without wires. What’s not to like?
ONE FUNKY ROUTER
The first thing that strikes you about the ASUS Blue Cave is its unusual name. But once you see the device, you get it. It is a hollowed out cube with a blue ring in the middle. What might be surprising, however, is that this bizarre-looking device is actually a router. Designed to blend in with modern home decor, the Blue Cave is a dual-band AC2600-class router that oﬀers maximum data transfer rates of up to 800Mbps and 1,733Mbps respectively on its 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks. The Blue Cave will come with the usual ASUS features like AiProtection and Advanced Parental Controls. It will also support Amazon Alexa and IFTTT functions.
IT’S HIP TO BE SQUARE
The Instax Square SQ6 follows from Fujifilm’s hybrid digital-analog SQ10. Both of them take square-format instant photos, but the SQ6 is fully analog. It launches alongside the new Instax Square Film Black, which comes with a solid black frame for stunning contrast. The SQ6 comes in pearl white, blush gold, and graphite gray.
VR FOR THE MASSES
The first standalone VR headset from Oculus is designed to make VR more accessible to the masses. It features a 5.5- inch 2,560 x 1,440-pixel display and Fresnel lenses, the latter also used in Oculus’ high-end Rift headset. The Snapdragon 821 processor powering it is a little old, but Oculus says the hardware has been optimized for VR apps. The headset also comes with its own built-in speakers, so you don’t need your own headphones.
GET THE FEELS
Wireless full-sized headphones with active noise cancellation, the HP70 features NAD’s RoomFeel technology, which makes music sound more natural by considering the eﬀects of the room the music you’re listening to was recorded in. Enjoy 24-bit music quality the way it was meant to be heard over Bluetooth, a regular 3.5mm cable connection, or via USB from a computer.
PUSH FOR THE PEAK
The Whoop Strap 2.0 does activity tracking one step better. The tracker records heart rate, heart rate variability, ambient temperature, motion, calories burned, and sleep, with biometric data taken 100 times per second, 24 hours a day. It uses this data to tell you how much you’ve recovered, how much you should push for the day, and how much sleep you need to rejuvenate.
PICTURE NATIVE UNION
POWER UP IN STYLE
Can a wireless charger actually look nice? Yes, it can. This one does, at least. The DROP provides high-speed wireless charging at up to 10W, while a thermal protection sensor provides safety against overheating. The silicone threaded surface doesn’t just look good, it also helps keep your device in place, with grooves to facilitate airflow.
