Each week, there are a ton of great products that get released that we don't have time to cover. Here are our top picks for new gear from the last seven days you should check out including DJI drone lenses from Moment, new headphones, and more.
Moment anamorphic lens
Just as Moment revamped the smartphone lens, the company is doing the same for drones. Moment has just launched their latest Kickstarter campaign to bring its amazing anamorphic lens to the Mavic Pro 2 and Zoom DJI drones.
With the lens users will be able to capture some absolutely amazing footage and the signature 1.33x squeeze and ultra wide imagery that the anamorphic lenses are known for.
The Kickstarter also includes several new filters and an updated iPhone case that is even slimmer. It now supports Moment's M-mount lenses and fits into DJI controllers.
Anker GaN chargers
Anker has just unveiled its latest two chargers, both relying on GaN technology.
The PowerPort Atom III is a 60W charger in an ultra compact body, perfect for charging up your USB-C gear such as the iPad Pro, MacBook Pro, or even a Nintendo Switch.
Additionally the company released the new PowerPort Atom III Slim which is a low profile wall charger that is roughly the size of a credit card and about a half an inch thick. It is easy to travel with and to plug in behind furniture or other tight spaces. It supports 30W of USB-C power and folds up when not in use.
The PowerPort Atom III 60W is available on Amazon for $39.99 and the PowerPort Atom III Slim is available for $34.99.
Helm audio has released a second generation version of its popular TWS 5 true wireless earbuds. They feature Bluetooth 5, Qualcomm aptX (for devices that support it, unlike iPhones), auto-pairing and six to eight hours of play time. With the charging case the TWS 5 can reach 30 hours total, or six hours more than AirPods.
They are available now on Amazon.
V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Master Headphones
The successor to the popular V-Mode M-100 headphones, the M-100 Master model is more comfortable durable, and better sounding thanks to co-engineering with Roland.
They have 50mm dual-diaphragm drivers that have been updated with Japanese CCAW coils. The cushions are larger which has made them more comfortable as well as isolates the sound further.
Lastly, they have a handy CliqFold mechanism that allows them to be great for travelers which can be rare in over the ear cans.
The V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Master headphones are available for preorder on Amazon for $249.
TicWatch Pro 4G
While the Apple Watch still reins supreme, it doesn't mean there aren't other great smart watches out there. The latest model to catch our eye is the TicWatch Pro 4G.
This is a new, slim watch with knurled stainless steel and Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It also features a water resistant speaker, great durability, and long battery life.
It has cellular connectivity over Verizon's 4G LTE network to get texts, calls, and stream music from wherever. With IP68 water resistance it is a great swimming device as well as other non-water based workouts.
It is available to order now and for the first month it is discounted to $279 rather than the full retail price of $299 on Amazon.
