There are so many great new gadgets and devices out on the market these days. We’ve covered Apple’s AirTag tracker, the Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) and Marshall’s portable Bluetooth speakers. But what else is new? Here’s a closer look at five of the best new gadgets and devices of 2022.
Apple’s AirTag tracker
Apple’s AirTag tracker has recently been released, launching during a virtual event called “Spring Launch”. While it’s similar to existing Bluetooth trackers, it provides excellent integration with the iPhone. The tracking capabilities include location, distance, and more. If you have iOS 14.5 or are testing iOS 14.6 beta, you can download Apple’s AirTag tracker app. Read on to learn more. Listed below are some of the advantages and disadvantages of the tracker.
You can remove AirTag’s battery by turning the metal underside counter-clockwise. If you can’t do that, you can press and pull the battery and plate off the device. The battery is also removable and is compatible with all models of Apple’s iPhone. You can even disable the alerts for a day by pressing and holding the battery button until you see a blue LED. Then, you can use AirTag to locate lost iPhones and other devices.
Although the tracker isn’t a new product, the privacy issues it brings can be concerning. Apple is reportedly working to improve its anti-abuse features so it won’t be used by stalkers and other crooks. Another disadvantage is that the tag does not come with a hole for attaching to a bag, so you’ll have to buy an AirTag Loop to attach it to a bag. If you’re looking for an accurate location tracker, the AirTag is the way to go.
Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen)
The Echo Show 10 is designed to be easily portable. Instead of having to use a stand, the screen automatically turns to face you. The screen is also designed to move with you. As you walk or turn to face your computer, the screen will automatically turn around to face you. It is also equipped with a camera that can capture your location and send you the latest updates from Amazon. Its size and design make it ideal for any home office or conference room.
The Amazon Echo Show 10 features a built-in camera that tracks your face even when you move around the room. You can even use the camera to call other Echo devices with screens, like the Alexa App, Skype, Amazon Chime, and Zoom. The camera also features auto-framing and pan and zoom to stay in focus while recording. The camera can also be set to play back video from your camera or microphone.
The Amazon Echo Show 10 is the third-generation version of the device. While the design and size are similar, there are some notable differences. The new version of the device has improved audio quality over its predecessor. The device features larger speakers and a proprietary chip called AZ1 Neural Edge. The screen is more responsive and you can see more content on it. You can also control the volume of the speakers through the voice assistant.
Apple HomePod mini speaker
The Apple HomePod mini speaker is a new product that offers many of the features that are found in the larger HomePod. Its smaller size and cost makes it more affordable to buy, and its integration with the smart home ecosystem from Apple is impressive. Its speakers can recognize different voices in the home, and can even work with podcasts and Pandora. The sound quality is impressive, too. It costs about Rs. 9,990.
The Apple HomePod mini features a built-in stand and a circular touch surface. Its LED lights are responsive to touch, and the speaker is compatible with Apple’s HomeKit protocol. The Apple HomePod mini is compatible with 100+ other brands, and a list of compatible accessories can be found on its website. For convenience, the HomePod mini has a dedicated button to adjust the volume and toggle between audio and voice.
The HomePod Mini is compatible with Apple’s HomeKit architecture, making it easy to pair with other devices. With its Siri-powered capabilities, it also works with Google Home and Amazon’s Echo speakers. The HomePod Mini can play all kinds of audio. Apple Music, Spotify, and other streaming services work seamlessly with this device. It can even pair with two other devices for stereo output. Another feature of the HomePod Mini is that it can pair with other speakers in a room automatically.
Marshall’s portable Bluetooth speakers
If you want to bring the party to the road, you can take one of Marshall’s portable Bluetooth speakers with you. These speakers are battery-powered, durable, and feature multi-directional sound with crisp clarity. They can operate for up to 20 hours on a single charge, and are water-resistant. The speaker’s multi-directional control knob is another plus. You can even adjust the volume and playback time to suit your mood.
Emberton II is the latest addition to the Marshall range. Its compact design allows it to fit in a back pocket and is IP67 water-resistant. Its True Stereophonic technology delivers rich, full-range sound, with a 360-degree sound stage. Its Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity improves the range and battery life. It offers up to 20 hours of playtime and has an IP67-rated casing.
Unlike other Bluetooth speakers, Marshall’s Willen is the smallest of its kind. At four inches high and three inches wide, the Willen weighs just 11 ounces. The speaker is stackable, just like Marshall’s guitar amps. Its compact size also allows it to be paired with two or more Willens, which the manufacturer refers to as Stack Mode. This mode allows you to connect up to eight Willens to a single Bluetooth speaker for even more powerful sound.
Sony’s SRS-RA5000 360 Reality Audio
In an effort to stay competitive in the audiophile world, Sony has developed the 360 Reality Audio Technology. While not a home run, it’s far from a strikeout, and Sony hopes to build on its success with future products. The Sony SRS-RA5000 360 Reality Audio gadget is an excellent way to upgrade regular audio content to sound more immersive. At around $700, the Sony SRS-RA5000 360 Reality Audio gadget is a great investment.
The Sony SRS-RA5000’s immersive sound technology recreates surround sound without a surround sound setup. It can be used with any Bluetooth headphones, and you don’t need to purchase Sony-branded hardware to get started.

However, it is still unclear when the technology will become widely available in the market.
The SRS-RA5000 includes Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. It’s compatible with Apple and Android devices, and includes SBC and AAC codecs. Its size and weight are just right for a desk. The Sony RA5000 is humidity-resistant, but not water-proof. Three 46mm Upfiring speakers and a 70mm subwoofer provide an immersive audio experience for users. The device also supports DSEE, Auto Sound Calibration, and Immersive audio enhancement.
Wyze’s room sensor
The Wyze Room Sensor is a new technology gadget that helps monitor the temperature of a room. You can adjust the temperature for kids and pets without having to open the door. Its features include hot and cold spot management, adjustable temperature thresholds, a magnetic table stand, and a wall mount. The Wyze Room Sensor can support up to six Wyze Thermometers, extending its capabilities. And it’s affordable at less than $25, so you’ll probably want to consider it if you need a new room sensor.

It can detect cold or hot spots in your home and automatically adjust the temperature accordingly. It also has the ability to use IFTTT integrations to trigger connected devices when motion is detected. In addition, Wyze is compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant.
