Micromax IN note 1: Micromax has staged a comeback of sorts with two aggressively priced smartphones that are riding heavily on the ‘Make in India’ wave. The IN Note 1 is the highlight device and is powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 processor. The spec sheet  includes a 48MP AI Quad camera, a large 6.67-inch Punch hole display in Ultra bright FHD+ resolution. There’s a choice of two hardware variants (4GB/64GB and 4GB/128GB). Our favourite feature is the pure-play Android OS experience minus bloatware (Buy it on Flipkart – from Rs 10,999 onwards) 

 

Zoook Studio Solo: Clean lines mark the design language of this affordable soundbar. It’s light and portable – just 1.1 kg and is about 60 cm long. It won’t occupy too much space in your living room and looks refined enough to rub shoulders with your large, flat screen TV. You can pair the Solo via Bluetooth or rely on the 3.5mm jack to use a wired connection. The Solo peaks at 50W and features built-in subwoofers.  The Solo soundbar offers a battery back-up of about three hours, in case you’d like to move the device around. (Buy it on Amazon at Rs 3,499)

Bose QuiteComfort Earbuds: it’s been a while since Bose unleashed a pair of Bluetooth Ear buds. Noise cancellation is the headline feature on these new buds. The new QuiteComfort feature multiple levels of active and passive noise cancelling including a clever real-time environment sound monitoring that produces an opposite signal to cancel out unwanted noise. There’s also an innovative  Volume-optimised Active EQ technology that automatically boosts the lows and highs so that the music remains consistently balanced—even as you change the volume.

Timex Fitness Band (TWTXB101T): style meets function in Timex’s first fitness band to debut in India. You can make a fashion statement with the elegant alloy case (in both black and rose gold) and a choice of stainless steel mesh band or a silicon strap. The band features a 2.4 cm full touch display with a five-day battery back-up. Features include Activity Tracking, Music Control, Heart Rate Monitor and notification alerts (Buy it on Timex’s online store for Rs 4,495)
