MW Weekly A-List: Featuring The Apple Watch, OnePlus Nord And More
Apple Watch SE: if you’re an iPhone user and don’t want to break the bank for the new Apple Watch 6, Apple’s first ever Watch SE is worth checking out. It comes with a vibrant Retina display and features the same accelerometer, gyroscope, and always-on altimeter as the Apple Watch Series 6. With the latest motion sensors and microphone, it offers robust health and safety capabilities including fall detection and the Noise app. The SE is available in a choice of three case finishes crafted with recycled aluminium; it is powered by the S5 SiP (System in Package) and dual-core processor. (Rs 29,900 onwards on the Apple India online store)
OnePlus Nord Gray Ash Special Edition: launched alongside the OnePlus 8T, this limited edition Nord comes in an elegant shade of gray and feels great in your hand with its classy matte finish. It doesn’t attract fingerprints and won’t slip easily out of those sweaty palms (read our review). The Nord is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor; the Gray Ash Special edition comes with 12GB of RAM and 256 GB of Internal storage. The 90Hz refresh rate of the 6.44-inch Fluid AMOLED display (1080 x 2400 pixels / 408 PPI) is one of the talking points of this device. Buy it on Amazon at Rs 29,999.
My Passport SSD: Western Digital’s all new storage device makes a strong case for the switch to SSD from HDD. Of course, SSD drives are more pricey but deliver insanely fast transfer speeds. The My Passport SSD weighs just 54gm and is almost the size of your palm. The metal finish is both elegant – we dig the ripple design effect, and durable. It offers shock and vibration resistance up to 6.5 ft (1.98 metres). The device comes with a 5-year limited warranty. This SSD comes with 256-bit AES hardware encryption. Available at a special price of Rs 6,999 (onwards) during the Amazon Great India festival (up to November 13, 2020)
Milagrow iMap 10.0: you’ve probably heard of a LiDAR sensor thanks to Apple that has used it in the 2020 iPad Pro and then the 12 Pro iPhones. LiDAR stands for Light Detection and Ranging, a detection system that works on the principle of radar but uses light from a laser. It’s one of the headline features in this robotic floor cleaner that works even in dark places at fast speeds and accurate mapping. The iMap 10.0 is built with technology that supports smart wireless connectivity, allowing the unit to be linked with your smartphones. You can manage the robot from anywhere and also it via Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. This versatile smart robotic floor cleaner can handle dry vacuuming or wet mopping with equal ease. Available on Tata CLiQ at a special price of Rs 79,990
