Whistleblower Roland Quandt has revealed the cost of Samsung’s new generation of smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro. If insider data is confirmed, then we can talk about a noticeable rise in price of new products relative to their predecessors: and this rise in price is the greater, the better the configuration.
Galaxy Watch 5 with a 40 mm screen will cost 300 and 350 euros for the version with Bluetooth and LTE, respectively. This watch will be offered in pink, gray and silver colors. For the Galaxy Watch 5 with a 44mm screen, you will have to pay 350 euros (Bluetooth) and 400 euros (LTE). This watch will be available in blue, gray and silver. The only format reserved for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is 45mm. Prices – 490 and 540 euros (respectively, the Bluetooth version and the version with LTE support).
For comparison, the cost of the Galaxy Watch 4 40 mm format is 270 (Bluetooth) and 320 (LTE) euros, the cost of the Galaxy Watch 4 44 mm format is 300 and 350 euros. For the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (they will be replaced by the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro) they ask for 400 and 460 euros. Thus, the maximum difference in the price of top models will be 90 euros, and this is a lot.
Roland Quandt is a well-known informant. In 2020, he completely declassified the GoPro 9 Black action camera before its announcement and named the exact cost, and in 2021 he completely declassified the GoPro 10 Black (and also with the price).
Active noise cancellation, water resistance, 30 hours of battery life and Huawei Band 7 as a gift. Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 flagship headphones unveiled
Huawei has unveiled its new Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 fully wireless headphones for the international market. They were developed in collaboration with the French company Devialet, which specializes in the production of audio equipment.
European users will be able to buy Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 in white, silver blue and gray versions. The price will be 199 euros. Those who pre-order receive a smart bracelet Huawei Band 7. Open sales will begin on July 11.
The headphones received an active noise reduction system with an efficiency of up to 47 dB, as well as a long battery life. Four modes are provided – comfortable, general and enhanced, as well as a sound transmission mode, when the user remains in touch with the outside world.
Each of the headphones is equipped with two emitters and three microphones. One emitter will be responsible for low frequencies, and the other for medium and high frequencies. The total frequency range is 14 Hz – 48 kHz.
Unlike its predecessors, the headphones are protected from moisture (IP54) and dust. With the charging case, the battery life is up to 30 hours. One charge will give you 4 hours of noise-cancelling and 6.5 hours without noise-cancelling.
Xiaomi Mi Band 7 and Xiaomi Mi Band 7 NFC received many new features in the first firmware update
At the end of last month, Xiaomi released the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 fitness bracelet, which has already sold over a million units. And now he received the first firmware update.
Xiaomi announced the release of an update for the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 and Xiaomi Mi Band 7 NFC models. The firmware is released under the number 126.96.36.199, it includes many fixes and several new features.
With the new update, for the first time in the series data devices, Xiaomi Mi Band 7 users can finally change the vibration intensity on the fitness tracker itself. Until now, this was only possible through an app from a smartphone. It is unknown if this feature will be available for previous generation models.
In addition, the built-in watch faces have been improved. Clicking on a component will open the corresponding screen. For example, pressing the heart rate number on the watch face will open the heart rate data page. The latest new feature is the addition of fitness reminders. It is designed to encourage owners to achieve their goals.
Speaking of bugs, the new update brings fixes for occasional restart issues, built-in text alignment of watch faces in the alarm section, and brightness issues after exiting the payment page (NFC version). In addition, the update also optimizes system performance.
Free app for watching YouTube on Apple Watch released
The free WatchTube app has been released to watch YouTube content on your Apple Watch, and you don’t need an iPhone to set it up.
Users can download WatchTube directly from the watchOS app store and start using it immediately. The application has four sections: Home, Search, Library and Settings. Like the official YouTube app, the home page displays videos that are popular on the platform. The app also allows you to select specific categories of videos to display on the home page.
Built-in WatchTube search works with the keyboard. Of course, users can also use dictation to search for videos within the app. Just like real YouTube, WatchTube searches highlight top results for videos as well as channels.
On WatchTube, users can even subscribe to channels and save videos to find them in the library tab. It is important to note that users cannot connect to a YouTube account. However, the app provides a QR code that allows users to share and access certain videos on another device, including an iPhone or iPad.
In addition to these features, WatchTube also supports video subtitles and even supports text resizing. Videos can be quickly downloaded to Apple Watch. If users don’t have AirPods or Bluetooth headphones, the app can also use the Apple Watch’s built-in speakers to output audio.
WatchTube developers say a future update will add an audio-only mode so users can listen to YouTube songs in the background without leaving the Apple Watch display on.
WatchTube is available as a free download on the App Store and supports Apple Watch running watchOS 6 or later.
