Here’s our roundup of the latest gadgets that will make the perfect addition to your shopping list
Boult Audio Drift
Drift is a new and affordable smartwatch from Boult Audio and it’s packed with features. The watch fits ergonomically on the wrist and is easy to set up. The 1.69-inch display is bright and spacious, while the IP68 certification allowed me to use it in the gym and go for a quick swim. The battery lasted me over eight days, while BT calls were an added bonus. The Boultfit app works smoothly and readings from the watch including heart rate, sleep, and activity were consistent. The Drift is a great value.

Techno Pova 3
The Pova 3 from Tecno comes with a 7000mAh battery but is still slim and light in the hand. Equipped with a Mediatek Helio G88 SOC, performance is good with a bright 6.9-inch 90Hz FHD+ display. Pova 3 is also great for gaming with features like 4D Vibration, Game Space 2.0, and Panther Engine. The 50MP rear camera captures vivid footage, including HDR as well as 4K time-lapse. The 33W flash charge gives you about a 50 percent charge in 35 minutes.

Blaupunkt BTW 100
The BTW 100 is equipped with ENC (Environmental Noise Cancellation) for clear calls and good sound. I found calls clear enough and good for music and movies. Battery life was great at around eight hours of regular use. There was no lag when gaming and charging were fast thanks to USB-C. The TWS buds also look very elegant and fit well.
