Press Release – @LogitechG Announces New G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse #GameWithPassion #WinWithScience

The Best-Selling Gaming Mouse Just Got Better With Customizable RGB Lighting

SINGAPORE — 5 JANUARY 2016 — Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced the introduction of the Logitech® G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse. By adding RGB customizable lighting to the Logitech® G502 Proteus Core, the world’s best selling gaming mouse just got even better. The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum still retains the world’s best DPI sensor, advanced surface and weight tuning, but now gives you even more features to elevate your game and style.

“The G502 Proteus Spectrum has an amazing sensor, and now it’s got customizable lighting as well, said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech. “You can also sync it with your other RGB-enabled Logitech G gaming gear to create some really cool effects.”

RGB Customizable Lighting

Match your style and environment by adjusting up to 16.8 million colors and brightness, using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). Bring your mouse to life with breathing light patterns, or set your lighting to continuously cycle through the color spectrum. The lighting can also be synchronized with Logitech G’s other RGB products.

Accurate and Responsive Optical Sensor

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum features Logitech’s most powerful and accurate optical sensor, the PMW3366, for maximum performance and tracking accuracy and the exclusive Logitech G Delta

Zero™ optical sensor technology that increases reliable targeting. The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum also features a huge DPI range of 200 to 12,000 with zero sensor acceleration, zero smoothing or filtering and zero pixel rounding.

Tunable Balance, Buttons, Surface and Weight

Personal tweaks make all the difference. For a mouse that feels just right for you, adjust the weight and center of balance through the placement of up to five 3.6g weights in the mouse. You can also easily reassign any command or macro to one of the 11 programmable buttons, using LGS.

And for optimal performance, calibrate the sensor against a gaming surface’s physical and reflective characteristics. Surface tuning optimizes the sensor dynamic range to match the properties of the mouse surface, which results in maximum high-speed performance and lower lift-off distance.

Comfortable Shape

The textured rubber grips and a convenient button layout ensure great feel and performance from your first encounter with the mouse. Additionally, the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum includes individual left and right buttons that provide a rigid and stable platform, resulting in precise, durable and satisfying clicks. Mechanical micro-switches under each button further enhance feel, speed and accuracy. And, a dual-mode hyper-fast scroll wheel offers enhanced click-to-click precision and lightning-fast scrolling for the Web.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum builds on the success of the G502 Proteus Core – the bestselling gaming mouse based on worldwide revenue. The G502 Proteus Spectrum is now available in Singapore, for a retail price of $129.00.

    RGB customizable lighting: Match your style and environment by adjusting the mouse’s lighting with up to 16.8 million colors. Bring your mouse to life with breathing light patterns, or set your lighting to sleep when you aren’t using your system.

Run to the Rhythm with Sony’s Latest #SmartBTrainer

(SINGAPORE, 26 May 2015) – Sony today announced the new Smart B-Trainer, an all-in-one training device and application that literally motivates your exercise regime with its range of features, such as intelligent music playback based on heart rate monitoring, various training plans, and real time voice coaching.

https://youtu.be/Yk8Fyg0z5k8

 

The Smart B-Trainer comes in a neckband-style design which consists of six types of sensors – heart rate, acceleration, GPS, compass, gyro and barometer – and measures as well as records 11 types of running logs – heart rate, burned calories, distance, time, speed, pace, cadence, steps, stride, running route and elevation.

Pink Smart B-Trainer

Based on a preset user profile and heart rate goal, the Smart B-Trainer measures your heart rate and automatically selects music for efficient training. Music tempo analysis is carried out by Sony’s 12 Tone Analysis technology, which extracts a variety of metadata through signal and statistical processing to analyse music waveforms. When your heart rate is higher than your targeted speed, a song with slower tempo will be automatically selected to guide you to slow down, and vice versa when your heart rate is lower than the targeted speed. Additionally, you can also adjust the tempo of the song to match your mood at the time of running.

Smart B-Trainer for Running is an app that enables you to manage running logs on your smartphone. It also provides a versatile selection of training plans, so you can choose one that fits your goals – be it to get in shape, build strength, or even to prepare for a marathon. After making your selection, send the plan to the Smart B-Trainer™ via Bluetooth® to begin training immediately.

White Smart B-Trainer

In an app which will launch later this year, Kin Tetsuhiko, a Japanese professional running coach, will be voice coaching you during training, warming up, and cooling down sessions. He will even share post-workout pointers, which can be checked on the app to track progress and design your next exercise regime.

Blue Smart B-Trainer

 Premium Training Plan in collaboration with MY ASICS

Smart B-Trainer can work in coordination with the MY ASICS Training Plan developed by ASICS, the “True Sport Performance Brand”. Training plans created in MY ASICS can be experienced in real-time on the Smart B-Trainer, and you can store and manage your running logs. Simply enter the necessary details in MY ASICS, such as your current level, sex, age, and training frequency to set six different phases, including Getting Faster phase and Going Further phase. You will then be able to see the training regime required to achieve your target.

After completing your workout, transfer your running log to the Smart B-Trainer for Running app to view the results. Easily compare your current session with past records through graphs and comparisons, assess your progress, and aim higher.

The built-in memory of 16GB stores up to approximately 3,900 songs, so you won’t have to worry about running out of songs to listen to while exercising. The Smart B-Trainer has waterproof performance equivalent to IPX5/IPX8, so you can run without the worry of sudden rain showers. Additionally, it can be used as a Bluetooth® headset to answer calls hands-free.

Starting from 22 May to 7 June 2015, the Smart B-Trainer will be available for pre-ordering at all Sony Stores and selected authorised dealers, at a recommended retail price of S$399. This promotion comes with a free 2XU Compression Shorts, worth S$139 that is redeemable from 11 June to 31 July 2015, at Key Power Sports, located at Velocity.
