Samsung 49 Inch QLED Gaming Monitor | Curved | Odyssey Neo G9
Take your gaming up a notch with the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9, a next-generation monitor that promises to deliver an unparalleled, immersive experience. With a curved, ultra-wide 49-inch display, and Quantum Matrix Technology that aims to make dark areas darker and bright areas brighter, you’ll be right on top of the action with cutting-edge picture quality to guide you through the game.
The physical display has a glossy white exterior, and features a rear infinity core lighting system which means you can personalise your set-up with 52 colours and five lighting effect options.
KODAK Luma 150 Pocket Projector
Portable enough to fit in a briefcase if you need to produce a presentation for work, or your backpack if you’d like to watch a film or enlarge your gaming experience on the go, the KODAK Luma 150 portable projector promises to expand the screen to up to 150 inches while delivering bright, vivid images.
It has built-in, surround-sound speakers and a headphone jack for private viewing, with a battery run time of up to 2.5 hours, which is rechargeable via mini USB.
Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 Black
Generally speaking, we tend to look forwards here at All & About Qatar, but this retro, instant camera from Fujifilm is too cute to ignore. There are two modes and two buttons: one for selfies and one for normal shooting. A button beneath the lens pops the lens out so it can get up close and personal for selfies.
There’s even a tiny mirror embedded into the body so you can get a sense of what you’re framing in your shot. Then you just click the shutter button and wait 90 seconds for the AA-battery-powered printer to process your photo.
Grado GT220 True Wireless Stereo (TWS) Bluetooth in-Ear Headphones/Ear-Buds
Building great earphones is a bit of a dark art. The goal is to create the illusion of a big, spacious sound out of something very small. Most of the time, earbuds can’t quite pull off this trick, so you end up with audio that can lack bass, sound tinny or seem distant (or in some cases all three).
The GT220 wireless earbuds from the Brooklyn-based, family-run Grado avoids all of these pitfalls to make the most out of your music. The earbuds handle the big bassy electronic beats of Run the Jewels just as well as they delicate, breathy vocals of Nick Hakim. All the highs and lows have room to be heard.
I suspect half the reason they sound so good is down to the fit. The earbuds twist into place with ease and sit there comfortably for hours, without any danger of falling out. There’s six hours of listening time between charges and another 30 hours of charge held in the case. There are plenty of extra features too, like wireless charging, touch controls and a degree of waterproofing.
Apple Watch 7
We’ve grown to love Apple’s smartwatch. It’s not just a great fitness tracker, it’s that rarest of things: a piece of tech that can actually change your life. The multitude of sensors on-board means the wristwatch can track your heart rhythm and it logs the data on your phone. If it spots any irregularities, it’ll suggest you take a trip to the doctor, who can take a look at ECGs recorded by the watch.
The Apple Watch will also keep an eye out if you fall or your pulse stops and alert emergency services if something’s awry. There are other variables it’ll track like your sleep, blood oxygen saturation and even heart rate variability, which scientists think could be a good indicator of your overall wellbeing.
The future’s bright for the Apple Watch too. A study involving 400,000 participants by researchers at Stanford University found that a smartwatch and phone could be effectively used together to spot atrial fibrillation in wearers, one of the most common heart issues in the UK, though it’s important to note that this feature hasn’t been implemented yet.
Similarly, Apple watches are being trialled as a means of remotely tracking the condition of patients with chronic conditions like asthma and heart disease and it’s even being deployed by the University of Washington’s School of Medicine to find out if it can predict the onset of flu or COVID-19 before a patient is aware of symptoms.
Oral B IO toothbrush
This toothbrush is crammed with an almost implausible amount of tech. Sensors inside will track the brush’s movement as you clean your teeth and map out areas you’ve missed.
There are separate modes depending on your mood, like “Intense Clean” after a particularly sweary day or something gentler for those with sensitive gums. A new pressure sensor inside will also warn you if you’re brushing technique starts to verge into self-flagellation.
Anker PowerCore III Elite 19200mAh Power Bank 60W
Anker’s PowerCore III Elite battery pack can charge your laptop via a fast USB-C connector. It has a battery pack with ample capacity, and rather impressively, a bundled fast wall charger and USB-C cable. The accessory also rocks a pair of full USB ports, so you can simultaneously charge up to three devices.
Charge Laptops Anywhere
With a powerful60W USB-C port you can now charge a wide range of laptops on the go including MacBook Air 2020, MacBook Pro 13.4ʺ 2020, Lenovo Yoga 720, and more.
Make the most of PowerCore’s 3 ports to charge up to 3 devices simultaneously—wherever you are.
The 19,200mAh capacity gives you the freedom to keep your mobile devices charged for days on end, no matter where you are.
Designed to provide optimized charging to low-power devices such as earphones, Bluetooth speakers, and other accessories. To activate, press the power button twice or press and hold for 2 seconds until the LED indicator turns green.
Connect an 18W or above USB-C charger to the USB-C port to recharge PowerCore’s internal battery in less than 5 hours. Recharging with a 5W charger will take approximately 14 hours. Note: Wall charger not included.
Pro UV Sanitizer & Charger
The PhoneSoap Pro UV sanitizer is a favorite of ours because it can rapidly and efficiently rid your essential items from potentially dangerous germs. According to its manufacturer, the device’s onboard UV-C light is even effective against COVID-19.
Another bit we like about the PhoneSoap Pro sanitizer is that is packs a duo of ports (USB-A and USB-C) for charging phones and other gadgets. You can order the gadget in several colors.
GoPro Hero 10 – Black
The HERO10 Black by GoPro is, unsurprisingly, an even better variant of the best action camera out there. It’s compact, easy to operate (we like its front-facing LCD display), and full of connectivity features. It can capture super sharp 5.3K video, 23MP still images, as well as livestream your adventures in high resolution.
Most importantly, the gadget has the best video stabilization tech in its class. The HERO10 Black can go up to 33 feet underwater without a housing. Like its predecessor, it’s compatible with a robust selection of original and third-party accessories.
Native Union Stow Lite Sleeve
The Native Union Stow Lite sleeve is one of the best for protecting your MacBook or another similarly sized laptop on the go. The reasonably priced accessory has an elegant design, headlined by a durable fabric exterior with water-repellent finish and cool leather accents. It also has a soft interior with sturdy zipper closure.
You can grab a Stow Lite sleeve for a 13- or a 16-inch MacBook with a sage, slate, and indigo finish.
