This hardly comes as a surprise anymore as every brand is coming out with their slew of smart devices. realme is, likewise, venturing outside the smartphone arena as they launch the realme Watch 2 Pro and realme TechLife Robot Vacuum.

realme AIoT

The company is transitioning from their 1+4+N strategy to the 1+5+T strategy. Still tells the normal everyday person nothing at first glance but realme explains it as:

1 — smartphone, as realme’s smartphones are at the center of its AIoT ecosystem
5 — key categories for realme’s AIoT products. These include the True Wireless Stereo (TWS), Wearables, TV, laptops, and tablets.
T — stands for TechLife. This is realme’s open partner platform. It aims to support innovative and dynamic AIoT startups through the sharing of realme’s own sales channels.

TechLife focuses on three product categories: Smart Entertainment (TV boxes, projectors, speakers and game accessories), Smart Care (vacuum robots, air purifiers and body fat scales), Smart Connect (smart sockets, smart light bulbs and cameras)

After announcing the realme GT to take care of “1”, realme is covering “5” with the realme Watch 2 Pro, and the “T” with the Techlife Robot Vacuum.

realme Watch 2 Pro

If you follow tech news a lot, you know how this goes. The realme Watch 2 Pro is supposed to be your partner for an active and healthy lifestyle.

It comes with a variety of monitoring features. These are an accurate GPS system, an Sp02 monitor for blood oxygen tracking, and a heart rate monitor. For an active lifestyle, it comes with 90 sports modes.

It’s also larger than its predecessor. It has a 1.75-inch (4.4cm) display with 600 nits of peak brightness. It’s also again promising up to 14 days of power with its 390mAh battery. You’re also offered over 100 different watch faces so it’ll never feel old.

realme TechLife Robot Vacuum

This device is kicking off realme’s whole TechLife line. It has the LiDAR Smart Mapping and Navigation System, the same state-of-the-art technology used in the navigation systems of modern electric vehicles and aircraft. Sounds overkill for a vacuum but if you want your space spic and span you wanna make sure the vacuum can get to all areas that it should.

The realme TechLife Robot Vacuum has a super-high suction and mopping power of 3000Pa. This means it’s capable of cleaning large amounts of high-density garbage while keeping noise levels as low as 55dB on quiet mode.

It also features a 5200mAh battery, a 600ml dust bin and a 300ml smart electronic water tank, ensuring that users do not have to constantly charge and empty the vacuum during cleaning.

It’s designed to fit into any home with a maximum height of just above 10cm. It has a sleek and classy design with the top cover of the device made from an impact resistant tempered glass.

More TechLife products coming

realme also teased a media-focused realme Pad tablet and their first laptop — the realme Book.

Price and availability

The realme watch 2 Pro will be available starting June 16 for EUR 74.99. The basic realme watch 2 retails for EUR 54.99.

3 accessories that should be inside your gym bag

Forget trackers and sports watches

Published

on

Working out has been a holy grail in my daily life. Even though gyms are closed, I made it a habit to use my gym bag. It made it easier to keep my stuff organized, and it helps with compartmentalizing. I can focus on my workout when I dedicate a space for everything related to fitness.

By now, you probably know the usual essentials that should be inside your bag. Smartphones, smartwatch, resistance band, hand wraps, water bottles, extra clothes, and more.

But I’ll let you in on my little world: I have three mainstay accessories inside my gym bag which I deem essential for my workouts — whether it’s at the gym or at home.

Soundcore 3

A portable Bluetooth speaker isn’t something I would use at the gym. But on my outdoor workouts and the social distancing imposed in almost every location, I need entertainment that allows me to still be in tune with my surroundings.

This is why the Soundcore 3 has been a great companion that I bring in my routines, especially when I decided not to use my pair of wireless earbuds.

It pumps up the bass even at low volumes, making my cardio exercises a bit more fun. And its dual drivers with pure titanium diaphragms minimize distortion for clearer audio.

The Soundcore 3 also has easy controls and carries a massive battery that gives you 24-hour playtime. Yes, my dear friend. You can listen to more than 400 songs on a single charge.

But what I like about it the most is its IPX7 rating. It gives me peace of mind when I hold the speakers with my sweaty hands or when I work out in the rain. And because I can bring it to the shower whenever I practice my dance moves.

The Soundcore 3 retails for PhP 3,195.

Powercore 5000

Another mainstay in my gym bag is an ultra-compact power bank from Anker. Called Powercore 5000, this power bank slides easily in your pocket (or your bag’s pockets). With 5000mAh capacity, it can recharge either my phone or my Soundcore 3 whenever I take a rest.

It does not support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, but it still sports an exclusive PowerIQ technology so you can still experience high-speed charging for your gadgets.

Nonetheless, it comes with a travel pouch so you can keep your power bank safe, a MicroUSB cable for connectivity, a welcome guide, and a worry-free 18-month warranty.

The Powercore 5000 retails for PhP 1,295.

Anker Powerline 3-in-1

I like being prepared and ready at all times. This is why even a cable was able to count as a mainstay in my bag. Anker’s Powerline 3-in-1 is a handy accessory since it has interchangeable connectors — Lightning, Micro USB, and USB-C.

It makes it easier to charge several devices that have different ports, without carrying multiple cables that would probably populate my organizers. Luckily, the Powerline 3-in-1 keeps the internal wiring protected so I don’t have to worry about replacing cables anytime soon.

Plus, it has an MFi certification from Apple so it charges fast and safe — which I lend to my friends that use an iPhone, who for some reason, always forget to carry their own cables.

The Anker Powerline 3-in-1 retails for PhP 995.

Nothing launches first product, the ear (1), for only £99

Featuring 34 hours of battery life

Published

on

Over the past few months, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei kept teasing his brand-new venture after leaving his previous company behind. The new venture, Nothing, promised interesting and innovative products for the audio segment. Because of the teases, we already know a lot about the company’s first product: the ear (1). Now, it’s time for the main course.

Nothing has officially launched the ear (1) for markets worldwide. As depicted in official product photos, the wearable will feature a semi-transparent chassis and charging case. It will have pressure-relieving vents and customizable silicone ear tips.

Inside, the ear (1) sports a capable 11.6mm driver and will feature Active Noise Cancellation. The Active Noise Cancellation has three different modes depending on the environment you’re in.

Besides the default Transparency mode, Light mode, as the name suggests, is a more moderate form of noise cancellation which lets some noise in. It’s perfect for when you still need to be aware of your surroundings like during commutes. On the other hand, Maximum mode blocks in all noise for when you’re in very busy environments.

For connectivity, it will support Bluetooth 5.2 for seamless connections with your device. It comes with an ear (1) app which includes features like Find My Earbud, an equalizer, and a gesture control menu.

As teased before, the charging case will indeed have 24 hours of battery life (and more). It will supposedly have 34 hours of charge. Each bud will have 5.7 hours of listening time and can charge to full in only ten minutes with the case. The case charges wirelessly and can be charged with any Qi charger.

The ear (1) will retail for GBP 99. A limited drop will open on July 31 through nothing.tech. Official sales will begin on August 17.

Called the MagDart

Published

Wireless charging is making a huge push. Last year, Apple resurrected the MagSafe system, opening up the magnetic charging solution for iPhone users. However, If you’re from the other side, you’re likely wondering when Android is getting its first magnetic charger. Well, wait no more. realme has officially teased an upcoming magnetic wireless charger.

Leaked by GSMArena, the company will launch the realme MagDart will work like Apple’s MagSafe charger. However, according to the leaked render, the charger is larger than Apple’s charger.

The report does not spoil the exact hardware inside the charger, though. However, it does indicate that the charging power will be more powerful than 15W of wireless charging. realme also promises that the magnetic charger will be the fastest once it launches soon.

To coincide with the charger’s upcoming release, realme is also launching the first compatible smartphone: the realme Flash. Not much is known about the upcoming phone, but it is touted as “the first Android smartphone” that can support the charging solution.

Besides the charging solution, the company is likely launching a flurry of accessories to go along with the magnetic system. Apple has, of course, used the MagSafe system to add in other accessories for iPhone users.
