LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier

Last year, LG built the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier. The futuristic face mask quickly became a pandemic essential for techies going through the pandemic. However, while COVID-19 is still leaving its marks all over the globe, LG isn’t done improving its ingenious wearable. LG is releasing a new and lighter version with built-in audio features.

For commuters, wearing a facemask presents a few problems. Of course, everyone should still wear a face mask. However, if you’re speaking to someone else, hearing their voice can prove difficult if you’re both behind masks.

LG is making that problem obsolete. In the latest iteration of the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, users have access to a speaker and a built-in mic. With a voice amplifier, the mask can detect whenever the wearer is speaking and amplify it for them.

The new model also has a smaller motor, potentially making it easier to wear. It also has a larger 1000mAh battery — up from the previous one’s 820mAh. It still charges with a USB cable. LG says that the device will take two hours to fully charge up.

Currently, LG has confirmed that the new version will sell in Thailand starting in August. However, they have not revealed when the new version will launch in other territories and for how much.

Pixel Watch blends the best of Google and Fitbit

Customizable and durable

Back in May, Google announced the Pixel Watch. However, though the announcement was more than official, a lot more was reserved for today’s Made by Google event. Now that the event has come and gone, it’s time to shine the spotlight on the new wearable.

Durable and customizable

Much like the Pixel 7 series, the Pixel Watch focuses on personalization. With a unique band attachment mechanism that mimics a camera lens, you can easily switch between different bands while staying comfortable and secure. It also comes with 20 band choices already in the slate coming today and through sprint next year.

As for the watch face, users will have access to 19 watch faces. Each of which comes with its own personalization options, making for a plethora of variability.

Meanwhile, the watch itself stays durable and seamless with a circular 3D domed glass, sporting water and dust resistance. A tactile crown also adds more functionality for users.

Made by Google (and Fitbit)

Inside the smartwatch, the Pixel Watch melds the best of software from Google and Fitbit. Users can easily access most of a smartphone’s functions without the phone itself. Powered by Wear OS 3.5, the watch comes with Google Assistant, Home, Calendar, YouTube Music, among others. Regardless, it will still come with Fast Pair, which seamlessly transfers what you’re doing to your smartphone.

Meanwhile, the Pixel Watch is also the first one to integrate Fitbit as well. It works just as well as a Fitbit watch while still offering the same versatility as a lifestyle one. The watch adds in advance heart rate tracking and sleep tracking.

For emergencies, the watch will come with an emergency SOS feature to automatically alert authorities during critical situations. It will also ship with fall detection, a feature which will come sometime next year.

It will last for up to 24 hours. Plus, it will charge up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.

Price and availability

The Pixel Watch is available for pre-orders now. It will start shipping and appearing in stores on October 13. It will sell for US$ 349. Customers will get three free months of YouTube Premium and Fitbit Premium.
