Dyson’s next-gen purifier fan is now available in Southeast Asia

Dyson’s answer to indoor air pollution

Published

on

Dyson’s newest product may not be as sexy and exciting as a hairdryer that will blow you away, or a vacuum that sucks up your dirt, but it’s one you probably need.

Today in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the next-generation Dyson Pure Cool finally launched in Southeast Asia.

Indoor air pollution can sometimes be five times worse than that from outdoors, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency, and the air purifying fans are Dyson’s answer to reducing pollution inside one’s home.

The original Dyson Pure Cool Link from 2016 can already do so much — it’s an air purifier and bladeless fan in one, and in a sleek futuristic package at that. The premise is simple: absorb and trap air pollutants, and release nothing but cool and fresh air. It’s a fan that cleans the air in your home instead of spreading it.

The first-generation purifier was also Dyson’s first smart device. When connected to the internet, it can be paired with the Dyson Link app that lets you schedule and monitor air quality, among other things.

With the new Dyson Pure Cool fans, you can still use the same app but you get an improved LCD that senses and displays air quality in real-time. It shows the kind of pollutants present in the room, even those invisible to the naked eye, so you don’t have to check your phone all the time.

The Dyson Pure Cool can detect and absorb air pollutants and allergens, even those you can’t see

There’s also Air Multiplier technology and oscillation of up to 350 degrees that make sure you get purified air no matter where you are in the room.

If you’re like me and don’t like fans blowing air to your face, the new generation also comes with backward airflow mode, so it still projects purified air but through the back of the fan.

The new Dyson Pure Cool comes in two models: a less expensive circular desktop fan and a taller purifying tower fan, both of which also come in two colors: white/silver and iron/blue. They are available in Singapore for SG$ 799 and SG$ 949, in Malaysia for MYR 2,399 and MYR 2,999, and in the Philippines for PhP 34,500 and PhP 44,500, respectively.

Tech for the strong, independent, and happily single woman

Because it’s Singles’ Day!

Published

on

November 11, or 11.11, has been dubbed as Singles’ Day. While some may believe this to be a reminder of persistent loneliness and that dreaded single status, I believe otherwise. Singlehood is and should be a celebration of your independence. Being single is not necessarily a bad thing.

That being said, I’ve rounded up a number devices for the strong, independent, and happily single woman.

Google Pixel 3 

In a sea of dual camera phones, the Pixel stands its ground with one shooter, proving that in a lot of instances, one is enough.

Sony H.ear On

To shut out the naysayers, and look good while doing so. Sony’s H.ear On headphones, aside from sounding amazing, are Bluetooth-enabled which means that you’re not tied to anything. If that isn’t symbolic, I don’t know what is.

GoPro Hero 7

To document your own adventures and tell your own story! With electronic image stabilization, your footage always comes out smooth AF. At least this camera is stable — more than I can say about those boys you dated.

Samsung Galaxy Watch

To remind you that it’s time to be your own woman and that you don’t and shouldn’t have time for other people’s crap. Consequently, it also looks cute and tells you the actual time.

Honda CR-V

So you can drive your own future! The CR-V is equipped with tech to make your drive a cinch. This thing will get you places.

Peak Design Everyday Tote

Because the only weight on your shoulders should be the weight of your stuff! Let go of excess/exes baggage. 😎

 

Joby Gorillapod 1K

Since you can stand on your own, like this tripod. Big plus for shooting your own IG photos with this — no need for IG boyfriends!

Happy 11.11, ladies! Always remember that the only person who can complete yourself is you. 💁🏽‍♀️✨

Fossil Sport is the cheapest smartwatch with Snapdragon Wear 3100

And it comes in yummy colors!

Published

on

Just when we thought we’ve seen it all from Fossil this year, the fashion giant unveils a new smartwatch. While style has always been its priority, the Fossil Sport is its first smartwatch designed for people with a more active lifestyle.

What makes the Sport important in Fossil’s lineup is what’s inside — it’s one of the first smartwatches to run Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon Wear 3100 and is the most affordable one at US$ 255.

The new chipset brings new features to the watch including a better ambient mode and longer battery life. With a 350mAh capacity, Fossil promises at least 24 hours of touchscreen use, and an additional two days in automatic low-power mode.

Like its Gen 4 models, the Fossil Sport has built-in GPS, NFC, and heart-rate tracking, plus it’s still swim-proof. The watch comes with the new Spotify app for Wear OS as well as personal safety app Noonlight.

Available in 41mm and 43mm sizes, its casing is now made of aluminum and nylon instead of stainless steel, making it Fossil’s lightest smartwatch to date. It comes in several colorways including blush, light blue, neon, and red.

The Fossil Sport is available today and will hit US retail stores starting November 12.
