Next level innovation
Change is constant and so is evolution in the tech industry. Every brand in the industry seems to always be looking at ways to improve our gadgets that ultimately add value to or enhance our lives. Here are five gadgets that come with new innovative features that will benefit users.
GARMIN VENU 3 AND VENU 3S
Did you know that Malaysians don’t get optimum sleep? Based on Garmin’s data, tracked from January 2020 to March 2023, Malaysians hold the second lowest sleep scores in Asia at 62.3 out of 100—and with this information, Garmin has sought to help its users get better sleep.
Introducing the new Sleep Coach feature, a personalised coach feature that tracks sleep and nap times. The Venu 3 keeps track of the different sleep stages, naps, heart rate variability (HRV), and more. With this information, users can observe what affects their sleep and the changes needed to improve it.
Some other stand-out features include Nap Detection which tracks naps to see how they may benefit the body; Meditation activity, a guided meditation to help reduce stress, anxiety, and more; and even Body Battery Improvements that monitor energy levels throughout the day to find the best times for activity and rest.

APPLE IPHONE 15 AND IPHONE 15 PRO
The all-new iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are now powered by the A16 Bionic chip that features a 5-core GPU with 50 per cent more memory bandwidth and a 6-core CPU. Apple is introducing its tougher Ceramic Shield display to the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus and the screen will feature an increased peak display brightness of up to 2,000 nits.
The cameras have been significantly upgraded with a 48MP Main Camera (quad-pixel sensor) with a 2x telephoto option for a total of three optical zoom levels. One of the most obvious updates to the display in the base models is the Dynamic Island. This feature shows interactive elements like audio playback and active calls, and even expands to show more relevant information.
On the other hand, the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max have shifted to a stainless steel design to make the model lighter, with a thinner bezel that gives it more screen area. The classic silent switch has also been changed to an action button, which can be customised to perform actions like launching the camera, starting a voice memo, and more.
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max run on the A17 Pro chip, which Apple claims to be “the fastest chip ever on any smartphone.” The cameras have been given significant upgrades which include a more advanced 48MP Main camera system that now supports the new super-high-resolution 24MP default. The Pro camera lenses also have a new coating that reduces lens flare, and the ultra-wide camera lens provides improved night mode and macro photography.
Price: From RM4,399 for the iPhone 15 | From RM5,499 for the iPhone 15 Pro
- The iPhone 15 & 15 Plus comes in blue, pink, yellow, green, and black
- The iPhone 15 Pro & 15 Pro Max is available in Natural Titanium, Blue Titanium, White Titanium, and Black Titanium
- Purchase online or from authorised Apple resellers
