ACTION CAMERA

Measuring 59mm by 40.5mm by 35mm and weighing 132g, the Sony RX0 II is the world's smallest and lightest premium compact camera, according to its maker.

It is dust-resistant, water-resistant to a depth of 10m and able to withstand drops from a height of 2m and a crushing force of 200kg.

Despite its compactness, it packs premium features, including a 15.3-megapixel image sensor, Sony's advanced Bionz X image processor, a 180-degree tiltable 1.5-inch display and support for 4K 30p internal movie recording.

Razer Basilisk Essential

GAMING MOUSE

$79.90

The budget version of Razer's Basilisk gaming mouse, the Basilisk Essential has a 6,400 dots per inch (dpi) optical sensor instead of the original's 16,000-dpi one. It retains the original's customisable side paddle, but does not come with interchangeable paddles of different lengths.

Otherwise, the Essential has the original's asymmetrical design, with the side paddle sited on the right of the mouse for easy access with the thumb.

Jabra Evolve 65e

WIRELESS IN-EAR HEADPHONES

$311

The Jabra Evolve 65e neckband-style wireless in-ear headphones pack four microphones that work in tandem for their noise-cancellation feature - two to capture voice and one in each earbud to listen to ambient noise.

Soft memory wire that conforms to the shape of your neck, as well as additional ear-gels and ear-wings in different sizes ensure a snug and comfortable fit.

A USB Bluetooth adaptor enables it to connect to a PC and a smartphone simultaneously.
