Fitbit, famed for its fitness trackers, has launched a new smartwatch called Versa. It comes with the new Fitbit OS 2.0 operating system, which includes a new personalised dashboard that provides a simplified and holistic view of the user's health and fitness data.

Powered by the new Digic 8 image processor and a 24.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor, the M50 is capable of taking still images at a rate of 10 frames per second. It is the first Canon mirrorless camera to have 4K video-recording capability and also the first to have a multi-angle screen that can be flipped out to one side and rotated so users can compose photos from creative angles.

Nespresso Lattissima One



The Lattissima One is Nespresso's latest coffee machine that seeks to deliver quality coffee easily with its new milk-frothing system.

All you need to do is to fill the milk container to the desired level depending on the coffee recipe, press a button and the machine will froth the fresh milk and dispense it into your cup. Designed for a single serving, all the milk in the container will be used for that cup of coffee, thereby eliminating any waste.

Asus ROG Strix Flare



Asus' new ROG Strix Flare mechanical gaming keyboard features anti-ghosting technology with N-key rollover to ensure all keystrokes are registered, no matter how many keys are pressed simultaneously.

Its backlight can be customised using the entire colour spectrum and a range of lighting effects. Dedicated media keys and a volume wheel are positioned on the upper left so gamers have faster access using their keyboard hand.

It features 50mm dual-chamber drivers that reduce distortion for distinct and clear audio. Its large ear-cups are padded with soft leatherette for comfort, while its expandable headband can accommodate larger head sizes.

Its detachable noise-cancellation microphone ensures crystal-clear communication with your teammates during virtual battles.
