PHOTO FINISH

Blending style with functionality, Leica’s Sofort LimoLand instant-film camera has had a makeover courtesy of Franco-Italian photographer and entrepreneur Jean Pigozzi. Aesthetics aside, the camera boasts eight shooting modes, including automatic, party, sports and selfie, and a timer for added creativity.

Unbeaten track

Fitbit’s new tracker squeezes the latest health technology into a sleek design that can be worn day and night. More than just an ordinary step counter, Charge 3 monitors your heart rate 24 hours a day, is water-resistant to 50m, can track more than 15 exercises and offers advanced sleep measurement.

SPEAKING VOLUMES

A welcome addition to the smart-speaker market, the Bose Home Speaker 500 brings Amazon Alexa voice control to your home. And once you’ve requested your favourite song, podcast or radio station, two custom drivers bounce audio off the walls to create an unrivalled sound stage. Speakers this small shouldn’t sound this big.

VISION OF THE FUTURE

An exceptional 4K OLED TV from Sony (55in and 65in available), the Master Series AF9 has been engineered to faithfully convey the film-maker’s vision. With eight million self-illuminating pixels and the Pixel Contrast Booster, this delivers the most vivid picture you’ll find outside a multiplex.

DIGITAL NATIVE

With a sleek, minimal design aesthetic and a love of luxury materials, Native Union has turned phone charging into an art form. Its steel and woven-fabric wireless pad – available in grey or rose – has a dual-coil wireless Qi-enabled element that charges in both landscape and portrait orientation.
