True Wireless for Complete Freedom

The Jabra Elite Sport delivers a cord-free audio experience, with outstanding stereo sound for calls and music, as well as full sports functionality. With three ear gels, three sizes of ear foams and three wingtips, users are spoilt for choice when it comes to finding the best fit for their ears. Active users no longer have to worry about an earbud slipping out at the wrong time during an intensive workout session.

 

Superior Audio Quality With Noise Cancellation

Featuring two microphones in each ear bud, the ear buds are designed to pick up your voice through the first microphone, while the other aims to pick up external noises. The Jabra Elite Sport can switch between the earbuds receiving the least noise, as well as remove the background noise by differentiating the separate feeds it receives on each ear bud, leaving only the crystal-clear clarity of your voice in any environment.

 

Medical grade credentials

Pioneers in sound from sports earbuds to hearing aids, Jabra (as part of the GN Group) has used its unique understanding of high-quality sound in the development of Jabra Elite Sport. Created in collaboration with engineers from ReSound, a specialist in medical grade sound solutions and a world leader in Smart Hearing Aids, Jabra Elite Sport draws on more than 145 years of experience in hearing innovation and fit.

 

Hear Your Surroundings While Running
When activated, the Elite Sport’s HearThrough technology allows the in-ear speakers to recreate ambient sounds, ensuring that runners are aware of their surroundings including unexpected incoming traffic and other dangers, while plugged in.

 

Both Mono and Stereo

The Elite Sport comes with two individual earbuds, offering users the option to use a singular earbud for mono playback and calls through its primary (right) earbud which communicates directly to the user’s smartphone via Bluetooth. The secondary (left) earbud, which connects to the primary earbud via near field magnetic induction, automatically reconnects when both earbuds are placed within 25cm, allowing for a seamless transition between conversation and stereo music.

 

The Perfect Fitness Gadget

 

The Jabra Elite Sport features a heart-rate sensor in its right ear bud that ensures an above 90% accuracy reading. Through its integrated app, users can gauge their fitness level via the VO2 Max measurement, as well as improve their run timings through the race-time predictor, and plan their workouts for maximum effectiveness with the recovery advisor. The updates are delivered in real-time via the intelligent in-ear coaching, ensuring an uninterrupted workout. The Jabra Sport Life app also captures and tracks your fitness development over time, providing a range of information to help you improve your fitness level in the future, including distance covered, pace, route, calories burnt and training effect.

 

The Elite Sport is sweat proof and comes with an IP67 waterproof rating. The earbuds have been tested to work for at least 30 minutes whilst submerged in up to one metre of water, making it the perfect fitness earbud under any weather and training conditions.

 

3+6 hours of Battery Life

 

With a talk and music battery life of three hours per charge, the Jabra Elite Sport is among the longest lasting true-wireless earbuds in the market today. The earbuds also come with an on-the-go charging case, which provides an additional two full charges, or six extra hours, of juice.

 

 

Works on both iOS and Android

The Elite Sport’s call and music functions supports all major smartphone operating systems with Bluetooth, while its performance tracking and fitness apps are available on both Android and iOS devices.

 

Three Year Warranty

As a training partner, Jabra Elite Sport has the added assurance of a three-year extended warranty in Singapore, the longest of any true wireless headsets.

Syfy welcomes its original Hybrid Virtual Reality (VR) series, HALCYON, premiering on 22 September, Thursday at 10pm (Syfy, StarHub Ch 517).

To give viewers the ultimate Halcyon experience, Syfy Asia has teamed up with Samsung for the series to be available on the Samsung Gear VR. The partnership enabled Syfy superfans to get a sneak preview of the series with the Gear VR at the Singapore Toys, Games and Comic Convention (STGCC) over the weekend, while members of the press in Singapore were treated to experience select episodes from the series at the Samsung Experience Store at Vivocity.

Experience VR episode with Samsung Gear VR

HALCYON is set in 2040 and follows Julie Dover, a detective in the Virtual Reality Crimes Unit, as she investigates the first real-life murder to take place within virtual reality – a crime that shouldn’t even be possible – and the conspiracy she discovers behind it. Directed by BAFTA-nominated Benjamin Arfmann (Random Stop), Halcyon provides compelling cliff-hangers moving fans across TV, online and VR platforms to find out what will happen next.

 

The 15-episode series consists of 10 x 5-minute linear episodes available to binge-watch on TV (Syfy – StarHub Ch 517), online (http://halcyon.syfy.asia) and on VR (Samsung Gear VR). In addition to the 10 episodes, viewers will also be able to enjoy five special episodes that will be available exclusively via the Halcyon VR app, which can be downloaded from the Oculus store for US$4.99 (from 22-25 Sep) and US$9.99 (from 25 Sep) on the Samsung Gear VR.

 

The Samsung Gear VR allows users to enjoy Halcyon episodes in a truly immersive and cinematic manner. Episodes will alternate between short-form and VR to showcase a next-level entertainment experience that combines the immersive nature of VR with the narrative arc of a linear TV series:

vr-interface

Halcyon’s story can be understood from just its linear episodes, but watching both linear and VR episodes will allow viewers a more enriched experience. For viewers who only watch the linear episodes, a short recap of the previous VR episode will be played before each linear episode begins, to ensure that they will be able to follow the complete storyline.

Viewers in Singapore hoping to catch the series in both linear and VR will be able to do so with the Samsung Gear VR.

Casio Releases Distinguished Metal Twisted G-SHOCK MTG-G1000D Series for the Discerning Globetrotter

Latest addition to G-SHOCK’s sophisticated MT-G line comes armed with Casio’s revolutionary GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor and Dual Coil Motor for precise timekeeping worldwide

110515_0415_CasioReleas1.jpgSingapore, November 2015: Casio Singapore has announced the arrival of the G-SHOCK MTGG1000D, the latest addition to its premium line-up of Metal Twisted G-SHOCK timepieces, which has been enhanced to suit today’s savvy jetsetter. It guarantees superb timekeeping as it is armed with Casio’s revolutionary GPS Wave Ceptor Technology and a Dual Coil Motor to quickly adjust and display accurate time, no matter where in the world.

The MTG-G1000D is the final piece to be added to Casio’s Global Time Sync collection, alongside selected G-SHOCK, EDIFICE and OCEANUS models featuring Casio’s pioneering and world’s first GPS Wave Ceptor Technology which utilises radio wave time-calibration and Global Positioning System (GPS) signals for instant and accurate timekeeping even across changing time zones.

Dual Coil Motor110515_0415_CasioReleas2.jpg

When adjusting to different time zones, a Dual Coil Motor powers the inset dial’s watch hands at the six o’clock position to swiftly rotate both clockwise or counter-clockwise to almost instantly reflect the accurate time when the world time function is activated. Using the Dual Coil Motor, wearers can also instantly switch between world and home time displays on the main and inset dials, making the MTGG1000D especially suitable for frequent travellers.

 

Advanced Core Guard Structure and Polished Finishing

Within the robust 198g stainless steel frame is Casio’s new and improved Core Guard Structure that boosts the watch’s shock-resistance using a newly developed spring-like fine resin. Wearers need not worry about hard knocks or impact even while on the go as the resin acts as a cushion to protect the module and watch face.

The MTG-G1000D is also fortified with Casio’s proprietary Triple G Resist – designed to withstand shocks from drops, gravitational forces and vibration – for unparalleled toughness and durability. Encased in stainless steel, it is a sophisticated fusion of strength and beauty complete with stunning Sallaz-polished finishing and sapphire crystal on the watch face.

Pricing and Availability

In 2013, Casio premiered the MT-G Metal Twisted G-SHOCK in Singapore, a collection designed for active and discerning gentlemen who enjoy the prestige of a luxury accessory but also seek outstanding performance and absolute toughness promised by a G-SHOCK. It is engineered and carefully crafted in Japan with the finest materials and opulent styling to deliver a luxurious timepiece while staying true to the durability of an original G-SHOCK.

The MTG-G1000D comes in two colour variations, stainless steel with either Blue (MTG-G1000D1A2) or Black (MTG-G1000D-1A) coded City Code Rings. Both models retail at a Suggested Retail Price of SGD$1,799.00 in limited quantities from 3 November 2015 onwards, at all G-Factory stores as well as Cortina Chinatown Point outlet.
