It’s hard to find a device that will address what both kids and parents want and need in a wearable. Though not a lot of companies recognize parent’s specific needs in tech for their children, at this year’s CES, Coolpad is stepping up with a smartwatch ingeniously designed for kids.

Coolpad, a company previously known for their entry-level budget devices, is dipping their toes in the children’s wearables pool. The Dyno Smartwatch is their latest release and the device, designed specifically for kids from four to nine years old, is a well thought-out gadget that considers what would appeal to children and what parents need in tech that their child would use.

The Dyno smartwatch is a 4G LTE capable device that has a host of different functions that kids will love; it can connect with friends, message, and even track step count! At the same time, it’s a secure wearable that allows for parental monitoring, location tracking, and emergency contact features.

Available online starting January 28, these watches will retail for US$ 149 each.

Coolpad promises that this won’t be their last niche device offering. Expect similar well thought-out devices as the company refocuses on “devices that help connect families.”

Samsung announces larger S Pen Pro

And a brand new S Pen

Published

on

Because of the controversial charger decision, the recently launched Galaxy S21 series lost a lot of momentum for its more bombastic features. For example, did you know that Samsung now supports third-party styluses outside of Samsung’s own S Pens? Additionally, Samsung is launching the S Pen Pro.

Before that, however, Samsung has also announced a brand-new S Pen. Compared to the tiny stylus from the Galaxy Note series, the new S Pen is larger, making it more comfortable to hold. However, there is a tradeoff: The new S Pen doesn’t have an internal battery. It won’t have the same Bluetooth functionalities as the ones from the Galaxy Note series. At the very least, infused with Wacom’s technology, the new S Pen still has some functions for Samsung’s smartphones.

Now, onto the S Pen Pro. Compared to the new S Pen, the S Pen Pro is even larger. Since it’s bigger, it can fit an internal battery, which adds Bluetooth functionality including external buttons like a shutter for the camera.

Because both new variants are larger, they can’t fit inside a smartphone slot. They can, however, fit on a smartphone case.

So far, Samsung has not announced any robust specifications yet. We don’t know how big the new S Pens are or how much they will cost. However, the company has promised that both will launch sometime this year. For now, Samsung users, especially for the new Galaxy S21 Ultra, can still use their old S Pens from the Galaxy Note series.

Samsung is going from Live to Pro in the True Wireless (TWS) earbuds department with the all new Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro. 

Samsung took their sweet time slapping on the “Pro” tag but it seems it’s well worth the wait. Headline features include intelligent Active Noise Cancellation or ANC and IPX7 water resistance among others.

The Galaxy Buds Pro has intelligent Active Noise Cancellation or ANC. It’s smart enough to adjust the noise cancelling levels depending on your situation and surroundings. If you’re out walking, it’ll adjust the noise levels to make sure you still hear if some vehicle is about to run you over. We don’t want anyone getting run over.

It can do this thanks to multiple audio settings that mimic multi-directional surround sound. It has a 6.5mm tweeter and 11mm woofer for better sound.
