Getting an earful
This week’s roundup includes the Jabra Sport Coach, earbuds that can also measure your athletic performance. Like some other new device we’ve been hearing about.
The $12 Clip-on Super Wide Angle Lens works with both late-generation iPhone and iPad models. It easily clips on to offer a wide-angle view for your device’s camera, and you can order additional lenses that fit the clip.
The DxO One helps give your phone the power of a DSLR-quality camera. The sensor slips into your phone’s Lightning port and captures 1080-pixel video (or still images at 20.2 megapixel resolution.) Battery life lasts for 200 photos. It ships in September.
The $90 Elevation Dock 3 “uses its weight plus thousands of microscopic suction cups to hold itself hard to smooth, non-porous surfaces. This ensures you dock doesn’t budge when you grab your phone. Works great on finished smooth wood, laminate, glass, granite, etc.”
The $149 Jabra Sport Coach is a bit different from your usual set of earbuds. Yes, it delivers music—it features Dolby Sound Enhancement to give your tunes the crystal clear hearing they deserve—but it also features a motion sensor that measures distance, pace, steps, cadence and calories burned. It’s like an Apple Watch for your ears!
The $99 Refined PJ Gift Bundle includes a leather cord holder and a wood-paneled backup battery that holds up to two charges for your iPhone. All that’s missing is Ricardo Montalban purring about “rich Corinthian leather” to make this item even classier.
The $40 Secur Six-in-One Car Charger includes a 2,000-mAh battery, a high-power flashlight, a flashing red emergency light, an emergency window breaker, and an emergency seat belt cutter. If that doesn’t cross off most of the items in your survival checklist, what will?
The $100 UE Roll is a “pint-sized” Bluetooth speaker that blasts sound in a 360-degree radius. It’s waterproof, stain resistant, has a 65-foot wireless range, and can play audio for up to nine hours on a single charge.
