Smart watch HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro
While everyone has a smartphone, only a few have smartwatches. We have already tested these. HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro is assembled in a titanium alloy case, the screen is protected by sapphire crystal. The smart watch looks like a classic chronometer – if you also pick up the appropriate dial, it will be possible to distinguish it only upon closer inspection. The model can do almost everything that such devices should be able to: measures the number of steps, the effectiveness of training, monitors heart rate, stress and sleep quality… At the same time, even with active use, the battery lasts at least 8-9 days (our own experience). If constant monitoring is not necessary, the accessory can be charged once every two weeks.
The gadget will be especially useful for lovers of walking and jogging: it has a GPS module that will allow you to monitor your own route on the map in the application.
JBL CLUB PRO+ TWS Noise Canceling Headphones
Headphones with active noise reduction come in handy: in transport, where it is always noisy, and in open spaces, where colleagues constantly discuss the news, and at home, when you have to work, and the child watches cartoons. Previously, only on-ear headphones had such a system, but now it can also be found in ordinary “gags”. For example, in the new model JBL CLUB PRO+. On a single charge, these “ears” can work up to 6 hours with the noise reduction option turned on, without it – up to 8 hours.
The level of noise compensation can be adjusted – say, if you are riding a bicycle, it is not safe to completely turn off extraneous sounds. Another interesting JBL CLUB PRO+ technology known from other JBL models is TalkThru. Usually, in order to talk at a meeting, you have to take out at least one earpiece – otherwise it’s difficult to hear anything in the “plugs”. The TalkThru function mutes music and connects the broadcast from external microphones, so you can comfortably communicate without removing your headphones.
4 reliable gadgets for the pool: players, headphones and smart watches
HP Smart Tank Home MFP
The concept of “home office” last year received a new sound. Many still work from home, and, most interestingly, they are completely satisfied with this. If your friend or acquaintance also belongs to the “home” managers, a multifunctional device that combines the functions of a copier, scanner and printer can be a good gift. There are, for example, in the HP range: the fresh Smart Tank series allows you to fill ink directly into the device, rather than using expensive cartridges. There are 5 models in the Smart Tank line, the cost of the simplest one is about 11,000 rubles.
At the same time, even a simple HP Smart Tank 500 has good enough characteristics for a home office: color printing with a resolution of up to 4800×1200 dpi, scanning – 1200*1200 dpi. The kit already includes three ink bottles with primary colors (cyan, magenta, yellow) and 3 more XL sizes (135 ml) with black.
PTZ surveillance camera EZVIZ C6T
An unexpected but useful gift can be a home surveillance camera. And it does not necessarily have to perform security functions. Modern models are focused more on observing the situation – say, for a child or a pet. It is better to take a rotary dome model like EZVIZ C6T. It can rotate up to 340° horizontally and 90° vertically, which means that it can practically show what is happening in a room of any size. The resolution is 1920×1080, which is quite enough to get a clear picture.
An important point: the camera has a microphone and a speaker. That is, you can not only hear what is happening in the room, but also communicate with those who are in it. For example, if you leave a sleeping child alone and he wakes up, there is a chance to calm him down even before you return from the store or from a neighbor.
There is also a more recent model, the C6W. It shoots already in 2K resolution and automatically tracks motion in 4x zoom mode. The H.265 codec allows you to get high quality video with a small file size.
