Runtastic Moment Elite

FITNESS TRACKER

$239

If you are torn between getting a fitness tracker and a watch, take a look at the Runtastic Moment Elite.

It looks like an attractive rugged analogue watch, but is actually a fitness tracker that can provide information about your steps taken, distance covered and calories burned. It even tracks your sleep. It is water-resistant down to a depth of 100m, so you can wear it while you swim or dive.


Laut Quint-X USB Charger

USB CHARGER

US$39.99 (S$56.50), available on www.itslaut.com

We own so many gadgets these days that charging them is becoming a challenge. This is where the Laut Quint-X USB Charger comes in.

Capable of an impressive total output of 8amp, the charger has five USB ports to charge up to five devices at the same time. Its "Power Accelerator Chip" is able to automatically allocate maximum possible output for each device to ensure quick and efficient charging.


Asics MetaRun

RUNNING SHOES

$399

Three years in the making and with only 60,000 pairs available worldwide, the Asics MetaRun is the culmination of all the latest technologies by the Asics Institute of Sport Science.

It uses the FlyteFoam lightweight midsole, which is 55 per cent lighter than normal midsole. Its new carbon fibre-reinforced, two-piece, AdaptTruss stability system allows for more rear- and mid-foot stability during running.


Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock

APPLE WATCH DOCK

$118

There has been no lack of charging docks for the Apple Watch, but none from Apple itself - until now.

The Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock may have a boring name, but its design is far from staid. The dock comes in a white flying saucer-like design, with the inductive charging connector in the middle.

The connector can be laid flat or tilted up by 90 degrees, so you can charge your Apple Watch in a flat position or on its side. The dock charges both the 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch models.


LG G4 Dual-LTE

SMARTPHONE

$888

The LG G4 Dual-LTE is a new variant of the Korean handset maker's flagship Android smartphone. As its name suggests, this smartphone supports two 4G SIM cards. This is convenient for overseas travellers who prefer to use a local SIM card at their destinations, so as not to incur roaming charges.

The smartphone also comes in a new colour: white with gold trimmings. However, it retains all the features of the original G4, including a 5.5-inch Quad-HD display and a 16-megapixel rear camera with laser autofocus and optical image stabilisation.


Toshiba Canvio Aerocast Wireless Portable HDD

STORAGE

$229

This portable external hard drive comes with built-in Wi-Fi that lets it connect to mobile devices to transfer photos, music and videos.

Although this feature is common, Toshiba builds on it by adding support for Google's Chromecast streaming dongle, so you can

stream movies and photos from the hard drive to a TV set with a connected Chromecast. Photos can also be transferred easily from a camera using the built-in SD card slot.
