Suunto Traverse Collection

Suunto’s newest collection of sports watches is geared toward day hikers and weekend adventurers. Available in five different colors (Amber, Black, White, Graphite and Slate), each Traverse syncs with Movescount and allows wearers to plan and upload their hikes before heading out the door. Each device has a built-in GPS satellite navigation system, which accurately keeps track of the person’s location and distance covered, and allows them to save key points along the hike. Other specs like altitude, vertical speed and total ascent are also monitored. And since each Traverse has a battery life of 100 hours, a 24-to-48 adventure is no sweat.

The Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2

In addition to their two new iMac displays, Apple has unveiled three redesigned ways to “click, scroll, swipe and type.” The Magic Keyboard ($99) has a low profile and improved key stability. The Magic Mouse 2 ($79) has a new multi-touch surface so users can easily swipe from page to page; and they can scroll in any direction with just one finger. For those who favor a trackpad, there’s the Magic Trackpad 2 ($129). Its touch-sensitive surface area is 30 percent larger than Apple’s previous version, and with its new force touch sensors, different actions can be performed depending on the amount of pressure applied by each finger. All these devices are obviously different. But what they all have in common, which is also Apple’s big selling point, is: they all have built-in rechargeable lithium ion batteries.
