FOOTBALL BOOTS

Adidas X15
$299, available from July 1

These latest football boots from Adidas do not have the German sports giant's iconic three stripes. From the side, the X15 looks like the footwear of an alien.

This is Adidas' first football boot with an ankle collar, which provides compression support for your ankle with proprietary TechFit technology. The upper uses Adidas' triple-layered X-Skin for comfort, protection and performance. Its X-Claw base sports a stud pattern that offers better traction and a lightweight feel.

WEARABLE

Sony Smart B-Trainer
$399, available tomorrow

 Designed for the modern runner, Sony's Smart B-Trainer is an all-in-one training device that combines music playback and heart-rate monitoring. It consists of Sony's SSE-BTR1 headphone-integrated device packed with six types of sensors - heart rate, acceleration, GPS, compass, gyro and barometer - to measure heart rate, calories burnt, speed and other fitness statistics.

You set a user profile and heart-rate goal, and the device will automatically select music to get you to the right heart-rate zone. Uptempo music will play when you need to work your heart harder.

The B-Trainer comes in the form of a non-slip neckband. Its built-in 16GB memory can store up to 3,900 songs.

It is available in yellow, white, blue, pink and black.

HOME APPLIANCE

Tefal Silence Force Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Vacuum Cleaner TW8356
$699, available from June 20

The "multi-cyclonic" label leads you to think that this machine is going to be very noisy, but it can work rather quietly.

It works by churning up air inside a chamber to create a strong suction to suck up particles and dirt, and expels them into a dust container.

Tefal says its latest Silence Force Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Vacuum Cleaner TW8356 is the quietest of its kind in the market. It operates at 68 decibels, which is close to average street noise.

It comes with a Maxi Turbo Brush for more efficient removal of pet hair and dust from carpets, as well as a Delta Parquet Nozzle for cleaning hard floors.

If you need a funky no-frills mouse, take a look at the affordable Logitech Wireless Mouse M238.
