The Dell U2717D is a great all-around computer monitor for professionals and amateurs alike. If there’s one thing that can ruin the immersion of using your new monitor, i t ’s big, ugly bezels running around all sides of the display. Bezels are a constant reminder that you’re using a machine, which is why Dell is taking them down to the millimetre with its InfinityEdge technology on their latest U2717D 27” monitor. Alongside a solid colour gamut response, high resolution, and fully ergonomic stand setup, the U2717D is also one of the sexiest to look at thanks to InfinityEdge. It may be a bit pricier than what the average buyer can justify for a screen, but if you’ve got the extra budget it’s more than worth the ticket price.
Get rid of skin irritation every time you shave with Braun’s new CoolTec Shaver, which is the world’s first shaver with active cooling technology that will provide a great shave with no irritation since it features an integrated electro ceramic cooling element that automatically cools your skin while you shave. This results in minimal shaving irritation and works without any gels or lotions. You’ll get a close shave thanks to its adaptable 3-stage cutting system that uses two independently moving cutting elements that adapt to every facial contour.
The unique shaver also uses SensoBlade technology, which are specially designed shaving blades that target and capture hairs that are growing in different directions so that you always get the ultimate smooth shave. It’s waterproof to 5m and it’s safe to use while in the shower, providing maximum flexibility. There’s also a powerful long hair trimmer and the LED display shows you battery status, cleaning indication and a travel lock indicator. You’ll also be able to get 45 minutes of cordless shaving, while the rechargeable Li-Ion battery can recharge in one hour. Price: Rs. 12,907.
If you want the time on you, don’t want to check your phone, and don’t want to buy a watch, well, your choices are limited. Ring Clock adds a few, however, and it might be a good, stylish option for those of us who want a discrete, simple chronometer. Designed by Gusztav Szikszai, the time piece has already garnered lots of media attention. It features a simple and clean design with its unique clock aspect around the ring’s band. The time is displayed when you rotate the ring in either blue or orange LEDs. Made from surgicalgrade, allergy-free stainless steel, the Ring Clock has three rings that rotate separately from each other to display the hours, minutes and seconds. There’s an indicator on it that ensures that you put the ring on the right way and the current time is highlighted. Its thin battery charges wirelessly by placing the ring on the included dock and is said to last up to one week on average. It’s also water-resistant so you don’t have to worry if you spill or splash water on it when washing your hands. Price: Rs. 18,000.
