Discovering cool new technology is an exciting prospect! Each month we take a look at some of the latest tech products available from JB Hi-Fi.
What Garmin Lily Sport Smart Watch
Why: Boasting a compact 34mm watch case, the Garmin Lily may be small and lightweight but it’s packed with features under the hood, offering all-day health monitoring and fitness tracking along with Body Battery energy monitoring, a wrist-based heart rate sensor, hydration and respiration tracking, and a Pulse OX sensor that monitors blood oxygen saturation. You can also keep an eye on your stress levels (with relax reminders sent if you’re overdoing it) and improve sleep time through advanced monitoring. And the watch can be customised for women’s health tracking via the Garmin Connect app. Smart notifications can be received when paired with a compatible smartphone, and GPS and security features means you’ll be safe wherever you are. Available in Rose Gold/Light Sand,Cream Gold/White, and Midnight Orchid/Deep Orchid.
Who: Looking for a super-smart and stylish sports watch? Pick this Lily.
What: JBL Xtreme 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Why: Robust and simple to use, this barrel-shaped 1.9kg speaker will get the party started whatever your choice of music genres. And if you want to crank things up to 11, the PartyBoost function facilitates connection with additional compatible speakers. Position it vertically or horizontally, or use the supplied carrying strap to throw it over your shoulder or hang it on the verandah. With 15 hours of continuous playback on a full charge, you can pull an all-nighter.
Who: Perfect for outdoor use or on the move, the Xtreme 3 is a portable party machine!
What: DJI FPV Drone
Why: Faster and more powerful than a standard camera drone, the DJI FPV offers a hyper-immersive flight experience with precision control. The included remote features three flight modes, and for even greater control there’s the intuitive DJI Motion Controller (sold separately) – a trigger throttle wand that controls flight through hand motions. Should you feel the need for speed, you can achieve a maximum acceleration of 140kph – while observing flight restriction zones, of course. Pair it with the DJI Virtual Flight app, and before long you’ll be piloting like a pro. The 4K/60fps onboard camera captures incredible footage and boasts super-wide angle FOV (Field of View), and the included goggles deliver a bird’s eye view through the drone’s lens. And if you lose sight of it or the battery is low, the Failsafe RTH (Return to Home) feature sends the drone back to home base.
Who: The aerial photographer looking for precision control and the highest quality footage.
What: Bose Smart Soundbar 300
Why: Music, movies, games, sport… whatever your bag, you can count on spacious sound and rich bass with the Bose Smart Soundbar 300. An everyday soundbar for everybody, it’s a cinch to hook up, with just a single connection to the TV using the provided optical cable – or if your set has an input, an HDMI ARC cable (not included). Built-in voice assistants Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are at your command, while the exclusive Bose Voice4Audio can control both soundbar and TV/cable box. SimpleSync technology allows you to pair it with compatible Bose products like headphones, satellite speakers and a subwoofer.
Who: Those looking for a smart soundbar with ample grunt and the quality audio synonymous with Bose products.
