Whether you want to take better portraits, monitor your sleep or just block out noise, these new gadgets can improve your life.
The latest OnePlus smartphone retains the brand’s association with camera-maker Hasselblad. Three rear lenses include a 32 megapixel sensor that is dedicated to portraits and aims to mimic a Hasselblad camera fitted with an XCD 30mm or 65mm lens. The improved photo capability is matched by a smart design, available in Eternal Green or standard black. The OnePlus 11 is one of the first smartphones to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. There is no wireless charging but, as it goes from flat to full in 25 minutes, that might not be a problem.
The titanium Oura Ring monitors sleep quality and weighs as little as 4g so you scarcely know that it’s there. Horizon is circular, lacking the distinctive bump of earlier models. By measuring heartrate, body temperature and blood oxygen levels, the Oura app can tell you how rested you are when you wake.
Noise-cancelling headphones are hard to get right; even more so with in-ear buds like the new Bose. These new Earbuds are smaller than the ones that they replace and comfortable in the ear. A smartphone app also lets you know if you’ve got the right fit for achieving the best sound quality. How does that sound?
