LG Signature W7 Oled TV

SMART TV

$12,888

LG's Signature W7 Oled TV is finally here. The W stands for wallpaper, as this 65-inch 4K Oled TV is only 2.57mm thick and can be directly mounted on the wall using magnetic brackets.

Thus, it looks more like a wallpaper than a TV set.

Yet, it is able to deliver great colours and contrast, with high dynamic range for better clarity in shadow areas. It also features both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos for the complete visual and audio experience.

Fender CXA1

IN-EAR HEADPHONES

$219

The CXA1 is Fender's first in-ear headphones with microphone and remote control for use with smartphones. Available in blue, white and black, it has a high-quality inline microphone with a three-button remote for phone calls and music playback, and is compatible with both Android and iOS devices.

In addition, it features custom full-range 8.5mm titanium micro drivers for audio output. Secure-fitting tips helpmake for a comfortable fit and reduce ambient noise. The package also includes a carrying case, airline adapter and cleaning tool.

Garmin vivofit jr.

FITNESS TRACKER

$129, available from June 1 in retail stores

As its name implies, the Garmin vivofit jr. is a fitness tracker aimed at children (aged four to nine).

Its comfortable and colourful kid-friendly design may appeal to children. You can monitor their steps taken and sleep via a free parent-controlled mobile app.

The fitness tracker is water-resistant down to 50m, so your kids can swim with it. Furthermore, you don't have to worry about charging the battery as it has a one-year battery life.

Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro S White

GAMING KEYBOARD

$139

Getting tired of or irritated by the colourful backlight of gaming keyboards? Try the Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro S White instead. It produces a crisper and clearer white LED backlight than what any RGB keyboard can deliver, according to its maker.

In addition, this tenkeyless keyboard comes with a 32-bit Cortex processor that powers its independent functions such as on-the-fly customisation, macros recording and LED lighting modes. Its anti-ghosting technology ensures each keypress is correctly registered, regardless of how many keys are pressed.

Fujifilm SQ10

HYBRID INSTANT CAMERA

$499

Fujifilm SQ10 lets you have the cake and eat it too. While other instant cameras let you capture candid moments, those moments are not stored digitally. The SQ10 allows you to record those moments digitally and print them directly from the camera any time you want.

You can save these photos into the internal memory or a microSD card. You can also add photo effects like filter and vignettes before printing them in the new instax square-format (1:1) print.

Element Case Rev for Galaxy S8 and S8+

SMARTPHONE CASE

$55

Looking to protect your precious Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+? Consider the Element Case Rev.

Made of polycarbonate and thermoplastic polyurethane, the Rev features a proprietary X-Frame chassis that is engineered to be exceptionally lightweight but yet can resist twisting and bending. Its impact-absorbing four-corner design helps to dissipate energy in order to withstand bumps and drops. The Rev also meets the US military specification drop-test requirements.
