A fresh school year is about to begin.
For students who require additional motivation to go to school and are very much into tech, here are some comfort buys for the new school year.
Garmin vivofit jr.2 – S$149
The Garmin vivofit jr. 2 is an activity tracker for kids. To help them clock in the steps, the tracker also comes with a game to motivate the children to achieve their step goals.
The games are tagged to the theme of the watches i.e. Disney or Marvel.
Parents can also use the parent-controlled app to set tasks and monitor their kids’ progress.
Nokia 8110 – S$109
If it’s time for your kid’s first phone and you want them to go to class in style, then consider the Nokia 8110.
While it’s not the smartphone of choice by the masses but it’s pretty ideal for the young generation.
Contrary to what people think, the 4G Nokia 8110 comes with essential apps like Google Maps, YouTube, Google Assistant and Twitter.
It may be a little lacklustre on the camera department but for S$109, it’s perfect for the first smartphone for your kid or kids.
X-mini NOVA+ – S$29.90
Who says cheap can’t be good? X-mini is a local audio peripheral manufacturer who believes that products with good audio quality don’t have to be expensive.
The X-mini NOVA+ is one of X-mini’s new series of audio products launched this year.
Although the price might put people in doubt of its audio capability, the pair of headphones does produce crystal clear audio, with enhanced bass and tangle-resistant cables.
X-mini products normally come in the grey colour but this year, the company decided to go a little bolder by introducing its red colour variant.
