This week’s roundup includes smart scales that take comprehensive measures of your health and sync that information to your iPhone. Read on!
B&O Play by Bang & Olufsen
The Beoplay H4 headphones ($299 MSRP; same price on Amazon) are Bluetooth-equipped over-the-ear headphones that offer up to 19 hours of playback time on a single charge. At this price, of course, it’s designed to be stylish, featuring lambskin leather, aluminium, stainless steel and a braided textile cord.
It hasn’t been a super-cold winter, but Nanotips ($20 MSRP; $14.87 on Amazon) will help you convert your regular gloves into iOS-friendly touchscreen-compatible gloves. How? A liquid solution you apply to the fingertips—it’s virtually invisible, but makes it easy to use your iPhone without having to remove gear. There’s one version for leather gloves, and another for fabric gloves.
The Twin Head Belt Cable ($40 MSRP; same price on Amazon) is an Apple-certified 6.5 foot charging/sync cable with and integrated two-in-one adaptor to charge both Apple Lightning and Micro-USB devices. (One caveat: It won’t charge two devices at the same time.) It wraps up neatly with a leather belt for slipping into your bag.
The Moment 2.0 ($79 pledge) battery photo case is one of the more talked-about products of the week. Moment’s cases already give iPhone a DSLR-style heft and usability, but now the makers want to improve on that model for the iPhone 7 by adding in a battery. Pledge a few more bucks—it’s still raising funds on Kickstarter—to add compatible lenses, lens caps, and other accoutrements.
The Honeycomb Series ($24.95 MSRP) of wraps and skins has an appropriate name: The honeycomb texture and depth protects against scratches and drops. The product comes in four colors.
The Fit iPad Pro Sleeve ($120 MSRP) is a “minimalist felted wool iPad Pro 12.9-inch case with a leather Apple Pencil loop.” It comes in two sizes—one for the tablet, and one for the tablet with a Smart Keyboard. It’s made in Italy.
