Tarbull MusicMate 550

The MusicMate 550 is an uber-cool neckband TWS that comes with pre-loaded songs (powered by Sony Music). The setup is straightforward, with the neckband using Type-C for charging.

The yellow version I’m using is bright and light in weight, sound is reasonably good with a bass boost option available. Battery is brilliant with a single charge lasting more than a day of playtime.

The pre-loaded content is excellent, even though I could only manage about 50 of the 1,000+ songs available, this is a great idea for travelling and if you’re running/working out and don’t wish to carry your phones.

The 550 also connects via BT for calls, music, movies and gaming. IPX 5 resistance helps with sweat and splashes of water. Those looking for a more secure fit will appreciate Tarbull’s 550 compared to standalone earbuds. Available in several colours.


Godrej Spotlight P.T.

This Wifi-enabled Spotlight camera from Godrej does all the work in your absence at home. The P.T. (Pan & Tilt) is ultra easy to set up (app + QR code) and even easier to fix if necessary on a wall or on a desk, shelf, or wherever.

Once set up, you can view the required space with 110 degree panoramic viewing in HD colour and clarity, having connected to Wi-Fi. I tried setting it up in various rooms and found great results all around, including dimly-lit rooms.

Night vision is excellent, providing clear images even in full darkness. Smart motion detection and an SOS buzzer ensure secure environments. AES 256 encryption allows your data to be secure.

The 1080p video from Spotlight P.T. is razor sharp and helped me identify faces and objects even at a distance.

Video can be stored on an SD card or the cloud and can be viewed securely via the web from remote locations. I would highly recommend Spotlight for monitoring indoor activity of homes and office spaces. For those interested, Spotlight also has a ‘Fixed’ option camera. shop.

Foxin’s Foxfit Amaze Pro sports a high-def display with curved glass for an elegant look. The smartwatch also has great features including heart rate monitor, BP, SPO2 and breath training.

IPad mini 6

The new all-screen iPad mini 6 comes with Apple’s A15 Bionic chip and support for Apple Pencil. It is a great option for everyone considering the small form factor.

The 8.3 inch Liquid Retina display is superb with great viewing angles, P3 wide colour and True Tone making text, colours, images and video appear sharp and stunning.

Touch ID is now integrated into the power button for ease of use. With all day battery life, whether you’re reading magazines, books, playing games, making video calls or working, this is a great new option from Apple. Plus, now there’s USB-C for charging and syncing.
