New Logitech Slim Combo for iPad Pro

The Apple iPad Pro is one of the technological devices available in the market today that represents the future generation of personal computing in both professional and leisure segments. They are popular and other brands in the market have design peripheral devices to complement the Apple iPad Pro.

Logitech announced the new Logitech Slim Combo for iPad Pro that users can consider to add on to their iPad Pro, turning into a personal computer on the move.

Let me share with you more information and pictures on the new Logitech Slim Combo for iPad Pro from the press release information:

“In the past, you were bound to a workspace with a PC, and used your tablet for quick messages or entertainment when you weren’t in the office; that’s not the case anymore,” said Moninder Jain, head of Video Collaboration for Logitech Asia Pacific and managing director for ASEAN. “To be a pro today, you need the power of the PC, but more easily available whether you’re on a train, at the park, in a meeting or wherever you need to be. The Slim Combo unleashes the power of iPad Pro to bring you the future of personal computing; a future that’s easier, faster and more fun.”

Key Features
Four versatile modes: The Slim Combo provides versatility through its four use modes — Typing, Viewing, FaceTime and Reading. You can comfortably shoot off an email using the full-size keyboard, pop off the detachable keyboard to sketch out an idea with your Apple Pencil, switch to portrait and take an incoming video call or just sit back and get lost in an e-book without distractions.

Laptop-like typing: Full-size backlit keys, smart iOS shortcuts provide the most laptop-like typing experience on the iPad Pro. Punch out emails – or an entire novel – on a backlit keyboard with carefully-crafted well-spaced and full-size concave keys. Three levels of adjustable backlighting keep you productive even in low light. And when you don’t need to type, simply detach the keyboard and enjoy the beautiful iPad Pro screen with nothing standing in the way. This is the future of personal computing.

Connect like a Pro: Batteries aren’t included, because you’ll never need them. Slim Combo connects to iPad Pro through the Smart Connector, meaning you will never have to pair or charge your keyboard again. Just click in and type away.

Pro-styled perfection: The Slim Combo provides 360 degrees of protection in an incredibly slim keyboard and case combo. The case is built to provide the right angle for every situation – and it’s not always 90 degrees. Two micro hinges ensure that Slim Combo smoothly reclines within a 50-degree range and stays in place once you’ve found the perfect viewing angle.

A home for Apple Pencil: The Apple Pencil brings a whole new creative experience to your iPad Pro, and the Slim Combo has an Apple Pencil holder to makes sure it’s always by your side. Slide your Apple Pencil into the holder– where it won’t get lost, or in the way.

Logitech launched G903, G703 and POWERPLAY

Logitech recently launched three new products on 31st August 2017 that would gain the attention of gaming enthusiast and esports professionals. They are the

  1. Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED™ Wireless Gaming Mouse
  2. Logitech G903 LIGHTSPEED™ Wireless Gaming Mouse
  3. Logitech POWERPLAY™ Wireless Charging System

They are the high performance wireless gaming devices highly desired by esports professionals and gaming enthusiasts that is now a reality for them with the new wireless gaming mouse and and launch of two new technologies.

Let me share with my readers more information on the new Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse and Logitech POWERPLAY™ Wireless Charging System from the press release:

Press Release 31st August 2017

After more than four years of R&D, Logitech G, a brand of Logitech, (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced the launch of two technologies that make the dream of high performance wireless gaming a reality. Logitech G POWERPLAYTM is the world’s first wireless charging system for gaming mice providing continuous charging while both playing games and at rest – completely eliminating the need to dock or park your mouse to recharge. The second innovation is Logitech G LIGHTSPEEDTM technology, an end-to-end system optimization built on decades of wireless development experience that provides unrivaled connectivity and power performance. Compatible with the POWERPLAY wireless charging system, Logitech G also introduced two new flagship gaming mice, the new Logitech® G903 LIGHTSPEED™ Wireless Gaming Mouse and Logitech® G703 LIGHTSPEED™ Wireless Gaming Mouse.

“For decades, we’ve pioneered development in wireless gaming, and our new POWERPLAY and LIGHTSPEED wireless technologies continue this commitment to wireless superiority,” said Moninder Jain, Managing Director, ASEAN and Vice-President for Logitech G. “With POWERPLAY, LIGHTSPEED and our new G903 and G703 mice, you’ll get unbeatable precision, lag-free performance and infinite power, which gives gamers the highest-quality experience.”

Logitech G LIGHTSPEED Wireless Technology

Trusted by gaming enthusiasts and esports professionals worldwide, LIGHTSPEED wireless technology can be the difference between winning it all or walking away with nothing. Featuring a one-millisecond report rate and end-to-end signal optimization, LIGHTSPEED delivers competition-level responsiveness at speeds faster than many competitive wired gaming mice. Decades of wireless engineering experience mean LIGHTSPEED has wireless signal strength up to 16x (12dB) higher than the competition and a unique Frequency Agility Mechanism that automatically avoids problematic interference, ensuring smooth and consistent performance.

LIGHTSPEED underpins both the POWERPLAY wireless charging system and G903 and G703 gaming mice, meaning these devices can pair directly with the POWERPLAY’s integrated LIGHTSPEED wireless receiver for optimal signal strength and the convenience of charging and data over a single USB cable.

POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System

POWERPLAY reinvents the possibilities of wireless charging. A departure from existing wireless charging standards, which require the charging device to sit idle in one specific area to charge, POWERPLAY was designed from the ground up to deliver uninterrupted charging over its mousing surface – even while the mouse is in play. The wireless charging system uses a groundbreaking application of electromagnetic resonance that creates an energy field above POWERPLAY’s 275 x 320mm surface to deliver wireless power without interfering with the precise tracking and data transmission of high-performance gaming mice.

The POWERPLAY energy field is captured and transformed into charging current by the POWERCORE™ module, which attaches magnetically to compatible wireless gaming mice, including the Logitech G903 and G703.

Logitech® G903 and G703 LIGHTSPEED™ Wireless Gaming Mice

The latest in Logitech G’s long history of high performance gaming mice, both the G903 and G703 deliver on the brand’s expectation of superior performance and unparalleled quality while also adding new LIGHTSPEED technology. Additional compatibility with the POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System provides untethered play, unlimited charging, and unmatched performance. Features of the G903 and G703 include:

  • Pixel-Precise Sensor: The Logitech G903 and G703 mice come equipped with the PMW3366 optical sensor, widely regarded by esports professionals and gaming enthusiasts as the best gaming mouse sensor on the market. Thanks to years of innovations, the PMW3366 has zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI). The resulting experience is incredible tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness, even at speeds over 400 IPS.

  • Advanced Mechanical Button Tensioning: Precisely-tensioned metal springs and exclusive mechanical pivot hinges on G903 keep the primary left and right mouse buttons poised to trigger. This technology delivers an exceptionally clean and crisp button feel, response, and consistency. Logitech G improved on the design and boosted button durability up to 2.5x with 50 million click switches.

  • Supreme Comfort and Quality: Both mice deliver long-lasting comfort. The Logitech G903 features a configurable button layout and ambidextrous design that allows for left- or right-handed use and works with nearly any mouse grip style, including palm, claw and fingertip grips. The Logitech G703 features a lightweight, ergonomically designed body that was made to mold to your hand. Rubber grips on the left and right sides offer added control. You can use the mice directly out-of-the-box, or you can program the buttons with custom game commands using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS).

Pricing and Availability

The POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System are available for purchase in September for a suggested retail price of $199.00. The Logitech G903 and G703 LIGHTSPEED wireless gaming mice are expected at global retailers in September for suggested retail prices of $249.00 and $159.00, respectively.

*** Logitech POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System will only be available in Challenger stores ***

The Logitech G613 also includes six programmable G-keys, putting custom macro sequences and in-app commands at your fingertips.  It also features Logitech G’s exclusive Romer-G™ mechanical key switches, providing competition grade performance with incredible feel and durability. Romer-G switches actuate at a distance of 1.5mm, which is up to 25 percent shorter and faster than the leading competitor. Combined with a low-force 45g actuation, Romer-G switches provide near-instant responsiveness and help minimize fatigue over long gaming sessions.

Logitech Craft – Reinventing the Keyboard Experience

A new keyboard design was announced recently, I reckon that is going to reinvent the keyboard user experience especially for professionals in the photography, creative and design industries.

On the Logitech Craft keyboard, you can’t miss out on the dial, this design is going to be very helpful to photographers, creatives and designers! A photographer myself, when I am editing my photographs on photography editing software, this would be very helpful in my workflow. I hope to share my experiences with a review unit, if the opportunity arises. Personally, I am keen to add the Logitech Craft keyboard into my desktop and laptop setup.

Let me introduce to you the new keyboard, the Logitech Craft! Here are more information and details on the new Logitech Craft:

Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced CRAFT, the first keyboard ever with a creative input dial, setting a new standard for computer keyboards. CRAFT looks and feels better than anything you have typed on and offers a whole new way to immediately access context-specific computing tools with a smart aluminium dial. For example, with a touch, tap or turn you can adjust image brightness, contrast and saturation in Adobe Photoshop, or create and adjust charts in Microsoft Excel.  Or simply turn the dial to move up and down font sizes in document programs like Microsoft Word. The creative input dial gives you the ultimate control and input at your desk for precision, efficiency and uninterrupted creative flow.

“Our new flagship Logitech CRAFT keyboard is for all of us who spend time creating using photoshop or building powerpoint slides and want to work with greater precision and feel connected to their work,” said Moninder Jain, Managing Director, ASEAN and Vice-President for Logitech. “The creative input dial gives you instant access to the functions you need, the moment you need them, allowing you to increase your productivity. CRAFT puts you in your creative element – every time you sit at the desk.”

The touch-sensitive aluminium creative input dial, called the Crown, recognises the apps you are using and gives instant access to the tools you need. With a slight touch of the Crown you can instantly access context-specific functions — like brush size, brightness, chart type, font size — tap to change the function and turn to change the selected function’s value. Installing custom profiles in Logitech OptionsTM Software maximises the creative process when working with Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Illustrator CC, Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Adobe InDesign CC and Microsoft PowerPoint®, Excel® and Word® (Microsoft functionalities work on PC only at this time). The Crown brings comfort, immediacy and convenience to your creative process and allows for increased two-handed interactions. You can also use the Crown to change desktops, navigate between apps, or adjust volume – and assign one additional Crown function in each of your favourite apps.

CRAFT also features smart illumination with backlighting that detects your hands and adjusts lighting automatically depending on the room conditions. The keys are crafted for comfort, in a full-size familiar layout, with each individual key engineered for stability and precision. CRAFT looks great alongside other premium desktop accessories by Logitech, such as the Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote and Logitech MX Master 2S.

Additionally with the touch of an Easy-SwitchTM button, you can switch between – and type on – any three connected devices, whether you are using a Windows® PC or Mac®. Select from either a Logitech Unifying™ USB receiver or Bluetooth® Low Energy technology to connect to your computer.

Pricing and Availability
The Logitech CRAFT Advanced Keyboard is expected to be available in September 2017 at Logitech.com and select retail stores for a suggested retail price of $329.00.

Jaybird X3 Review

The Jaybird family of wireless sports buds, I first knew about them when I first tested and reviewed the Jaybird Freedom wireless buds a few months back. Once I put it on, did a review on it, my view was that Jaybird family had excellent wireless sports buds, in both aesthetic design and excellent sound quality system.

When the Jaybird X3 wireless sports headphones arrived in Singapore, I had an opportunity to review them and I was excited since I reviewed the Jaybird Freedom wireless buds!

Upon opening up the Jaybird X3 wireless headphones, I spotted something different in their packaging. The silicone ear fins were already attached nicely inside the box, helping users who might be confused initially on how to attach the silicone ear fins properly onto the Jaybird wireless buds!

First and foremost, let me share my thoughts and views on the aesthetics of the Jaybird X3 wireless sports headphones before sharing on the sound quality and standards of the Jaybird X3 wireless headphones.

Tough and durable material

When I opened up the Jaybird X3 box and took out the earphones, I had a feel of the material and its built quality. It’s made of tough and durable (high quality plastic) material that can withstand the rugged outdoor conditions and handling lots of sweat during intensive exercise, thanks to the hydrophobic nano coating.

Silicone ear fins

In my personal humble opinion, the silicone ear fins are another feature that makes the Jaybird X3 wireless earphones unique. For a start, users might take some time before they get used to the design and fit inside the ear. You can choose to wear your Jaybird Freedom over-ear sport-fit with fins or over-ear sport-fit without fins or under-ear with fins or under-ear without fins. It’s your personal choice whether you want to have the ear-fins or without ear-fins. There are 4 different ear fins sizes (XS, S, M, L) inside the package and they fit in nicely for sporty/outdoors lifestyle e.g. running, biking, trekking.

Silicone ear tips and Comply ear tips

There are 2 types of ear tips, they come in 3 different sizes for each type of ear tips, to suit your needs and requirements.

Cable

The length of the Jaybird X3 wireless earphones cable is pretty good in my opinion, not too long in length if not it would dangle down and get caught on to other objects. There are cord clips available to shorten the cable behind the neck, you can adjust the length to your liking and preference. Jaybird also gives customers another additional accessory option, a shirt clip is inside the package, that allows the user to attach the cable to their shirt, ideal when going for sports/outdoor activities.

Comfort, Fitting and Balance

The micro-size and secure fit design of the Jaybird X3 make this wireless buds a well balanced, lightweight and tight (yet comfortable) fitting earphones for the avid sports or outdoor adventure user. Users do not need to worry too much on the Jaybird X3 dropping out from the ears or feeling imbalanced because these 2 factors had been taken care of in this Jaybird X3 design.

Bluetooth connection

The bluetooth connection between the earphones and devices are smooth, easy to setup and connect.

Battery life

The battery life of the Jaybird Freedom wireless buds is 8 hours and this would be ideal for extended training sessions, outdoor activities and even doing long distance runs.

MySound App

This app is a perfect complement for your Jaybird wireless headphones, the features, functionalities and capabilities of the Jaybird X3 can be utilised and customised to your music/listening needs/preferences. If you are an owner of a Jaybird wireless buds, you have to download and use it!

  • Nice and easy to user user interface
  • Presets available for you to choose and add to the app dashboard
  • Customise your own preset
  • Battery life indicator on app

Sound

Finally, the segment on the sound quality of the Jaybird X3 wireless sports earphones. The design and aesthetics of the Jaybird X3 are really good, well thought out, planned and designed. The next key factor for any earphones review will be on the sound quality.

The pair of Jaybird X3 have enhanced 6mm speaker drivers, giving users a larger sound that can be felt through stronger and sharper bass levels. Some might like it strong and enhanced, some users might not, it’s a personal preference. The treble produced by the Jaybird X3 is clear and strong. Do take note that the Jaybird X3 wireless buds snug into your ears more closely and firmer, thus the user might feel a bit more “overwhelmed” due to the enhanced and more powerful 6mm speaker drivers. Based on your own listening preferences, you can make adjustments on the MySound App, tune it to your own liking and preference.

Disclaimer: I do not claim to be audiophile expert or musician, I like listening to music, bringing along for my runs and exercises or traveling between locations.

Final Thoughts and Views

The Jaybird X3 wireless headphones is not just ideal for active sports users, it’s highly suitable and highly recommended for users into extreme sports and outdoor action (Jaybird X3 is tough and rugged!). If you fit into either or both categories, I highly recommend the Jaybird X3, the durability and pretty good sound quality packed inside this pair of wireless headphones.

* I would like to thank Logitech Singapore for the opportunity to review the Jaybird X3 wireless sports headphones *
