New Products, April 27, 2016: Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless, Dyson Pure Cool Link and more

Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless



Aimed at those who love listening to music while working out, this pair of wireless earphones is designed to be sweat- and water-resistant, from the earbuds to the tangle-free wrap-around cable.

Its flexible ear hooks ensure the earbuds stay in place during intensive circuit training. Inline controls allow music playback adjustment and also let users answer calls.

Dyson Pure Cool Link



The Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier fan uses a unique 360-degree HEPA filter that is supposed to capture 99.95 per cent of ultra-fine allergens, odours and pollutants as small as 0.1 micron.

Sensors inside the machine detect changes in air quality and automatically adjust airflow for cleaner air in your room. It also functions as a bladeless fan.

LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition



Smartwatches usually need to be paired with a smartphone. Not the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition.

It is the first cellular-equipped Android Wear smartwatch, so you can get your e-mail and social media notifications even when you don't have your phone close by. You can also reply to text messages and make phone calls directly from this watch.

It is also a good-looker, with a classic design, stainless steel body, and a round 480x480-pixel touchscreen display.

ViDi action camera kit


$179, available next month

It comes with an ultra-wide 140-degree fish eye lens and is able to shoot 1,080p full high-definition videos and 12-megapixel still images. Unlike many action cameras, the ViDi has a rear LCD screen so you can actually see what you are shooting.

The set comes with a waterproof case, selfie stick and a 4GB microSD card.
