Protected by an ultra-durable Corning Gorilla Glass lens with an oleophobic, anti-fingerprint coating, you don’t have to worry about scratching the e-paper display surface and its improved housing also comes with subtle RGB LED lights to indicate charging status. With its up to 5 ATM water resistance feature, just switch to the sport strap and you are ready to go!

And with big brands such as Mercedes-Benz, iControl, GoPro, Misfit… etc coming on board, you can do more with the Pebble Steel.

Aside from having Leader Radio Technology team sharing and having the demo on Pebble Steel, Pebble Evangelist, Divian Nair was at the launch as well. Sharing how stoked he is, for his collection of gadgets such as GoPro, Sonos and Philips Hue can now be controlled from the wrist. Aside from the gadgets link-up, emails are hardly ever missed, with the notifications appearing on Pebble Steel.

I’m sure that will be useful for those on-the-go or driving, to have a quick glance without needing to stop :)

For some photos I snapped at the launch, here’s the album - Pebble Steel Launch.

To be able to customize the display clock, get notifications and things done with a wearable, that’s something I want and still missing from my gadget collection :D
Though the price tag is a little steep but for the features, available apps, some 3rd party accessories and possibility to do more, I would consider getting one.

Thanks LRT and SG Story for the launch invite and press release!

News: Logitech G Unveils World’s Fastest Gaming Mouse, G402 Hyperion Fury

Earlier today, Logitech introduced the fastest gaming mouse ever made, the Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury Ultra-Fast FPS Gaming Mouse.

The G402 Hyperion Fury features Logitech’s exclusive Fusion Engine™ sensor technology that can reliably track over 500 inches per second (IPS) and Logitech’sexclusive Delta Zero™ sensor technology for unrivaled accuracy.

*****

A 32-bit on-board ARM processor powers the Fusion Engine in Hyperion Fury, allowing reliable and accurate tracking speeds exceeding 500 inches per second. In addition, lightweight materials and low-friction feet allow for high-speed moves, while offering the most comfortable feeling.

The Logitech exclusive Delta Zero technology ensures pinpoint accuracy for Hyperion Fury. Four DPI settings can be accessed in an instant, so you can shift down for pixel-perfect sniping or shift up for high-speed maneuvers, all with maximum precision. Using Logitech Gaming Software, you can add a fifth DPI setting and customize the experience to your liking. With DPI shifting, Hyperion Fury can go from 4000 DPI to 240 DPI in the blink of an eye, giving you the flexibility to thrive in the chaos of battle.

And the G402 Hyperion Fury features eight programmable buttons that can be configured for anything – whether complex macros or single keystrokes – using Logitech Gaming Software. Personal configurations can be saved for maximum speed and accessibility and with a consistent 1-millisecond report rate, Hyperion Fury ensures all your commands are executed as efficiently and quickly.

As for availability and pricing, the Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury FPS Gaming Mouse is expected to be available from mid-August 2014, with a suggested retail price of SGD$65.00.

Sounds like something useful for the competitive FPS-ers and MMORPG-ers :)
