Tech­nol­ogy has given us an ar­ray of very cool gad­gets and de­vices – but in­ge­nu­ity is only half the ap­peal. These of­fer­ings need to fit our life­styles and look good too. Here are some new de­vices which tick all those boxes

TAG HEUER CON­NECTED MOD­U­LAR 45

The Mod­u­lar 45 per­fectly bal­ances the techno-savvy of a smart­watch with the func­tion­al­ity and aes­thet­ics of a great time­piece.

Those who love in-ear head­phones don’t have to set­tle for what­ever comes with their smart­phone. If there’s one thing Klipsch does ex­cep­tion­ally well, it’s au­dio and the X20i is truly wor­thy of bear­ing the brand’s name. Made of stain­less steel with three-but­ton re­mote and mic, the sound’s per­fectly bal­anced as a re­sult of the two-way dual ar­ma­ture de­sign, KG-926T woofer and KG-125B su­per-tweeter.

This col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Porsche De­sign and Huawei has pro­duced a smart­phone that’s as at­trac­tive as it’s func­tional. Avail­able only in black, it has a 6” 2K curved OLED screen, a 3D curved glass body and dual SLS speak­ers with Dolby At­mos. I’ve al­ways loved the con­ve­nience of the fin­ger­print scan­ner on the back of Huawei smart­phones, but this one has an ad­di­tional scan­ner in the screen it­self.

Then there’s a 40MP Le­ica triple cam­era. Huawei’s part­ner­ship with Le­ica has en­abled it to cre­ate some won­der­ful in­no­va­tions, driven by Mas­ter AI, which helps you take great pic­tures, such as im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion. It also has an AI pro­ces­sor, which is said to en­sure that the de­vice learns from the way you use it. Quick wire­less charge, 256GB in­ter­nal stor­age, splash-, wa­ter- and dust-re­sis­tance with ac­ces­sories in­spired by Porsche make the Porsche De­sign Huawei Mate RS not just a toy, but a pow­er­ful smart­phone.
