LG Stylus 3



The LG Stylus 3 is a mid-range smartphone with premium features.

It comes with a stylus that has a 1.8mm tip to provide tactile feedback like an actual pen when you write on its 5.7-inch high-definition screen. Detach the stylus and a menu of useful tasks - Pop memo, Capture Plus, Pop Scanner and Quick Memo - will automatically appear. A Screen-off Memo enables note-taking directly on the screen even when the display is off.

Philips SmartPro Compact (FC8776/01)



Let the Philips SmartPro Compact robot vacuum cleaner keep your house dust-free, so you have more time to relax or play video games.

The SmartPro Compact has a slim 6cm-tall design with infra-red sensors to make sure no space is missed, even under some sofas. It comes with Philips' patented TriActive XL nozzle that is said to clean floors twice as fast as its predecessor. It is also equipped with a Smart Detection System that enables the robot to clean autonomously without supervision and prevents it from bumping into obstacles.

Onkyo LS7200 3D Soundbar System



Looking for a sleek sound system? Consider the Onkyo LS7200 3D Soundbar System.

It is a three-piece system with a single-cable sound bar that connects to an audio-video (AV) centre and a wireless sub-woofer. The AV centre has four HDMI input ports that let you connect your media players or game consoles.

The sound bar provides Dolby Atmos and DTS-X playback with a new Surround Enhancer technology. It also supports DTS Play-Fi, Apple AirPlay, Spotify Connect and Bluetooth streaming.

Logitech Spotlight



From its looks alone, you know the Logitech Spotlight is no ordinary presentation remote. Made of aluminium, this remote is sleekness exemplified.

It has only three buttons, but they should cater to any presentation. Spotlight also does away with laser pointers, and provides a more advanced pointer system that allows you to highlight and magnify areas you want to focus.

You can customise its timer to send haptic notifications directly to your hand, so you know you are on cue to move to the next slide.

Polar H10



If you prefer better accuracy with a chest-strap heart-rate monitor (HRM), there's the new Polar H10.

The H10 is a Bluetooth-enabled chest-strap HRM that works with all Bluetooth Polar running watches, fitness trackers as well as most Bluetooth-compatible mobile devices.

It has built-in memory to store heart-rate data from one training session, and you can transfer the heart-rate data to the free Polar Beat app (Android and iOS). The app also provides future software updates for H10.
