The days are getting warmer for those in the northern hemisphere. Here in tropical Singapore, you can expect even more sunny days, and lower rainfall in the coming months. Great for those who enjoy outdoor activities. Whether you're planning to explore a nature park, go for an evening jog around your neighbourhood, or lounge by the pool, here are five gadgets for outdoor activities that you should check out.
Canon EOS R50
The Canon EOS R50 is a compact and lightweight camera that's perfect for your next outdoor adventure. It takes really good photos, and has electronic image stabilisation for videos (supports 4K 30fps). Autofocus is great, and the battery will last you a full day. It's also affordably priced at S$1,139.
Creative Muvo Go
Planning a BBQ or a picnic at a park? Bring the Creative Muvo Go (S$89) to play your tunes while you enjoy the outdoors. This bottle-sized portable Bluetooth speaker is waterproof enough to survive a sudden shower. Sound is great for its size — there's no distortion even at maximum volume. Get two for even better stereo sound. And it will last up to 18 hours on a single charge.
Kobo Clara 2E
Reading by the pool or at the beach is a relaxing way to spend the day. While paperbacks are fine, it might be better to get a waterproof ebook reader like the Kobo Clara 2E (S$199.90). You can hold it comfortably with one hand, while its 6-inch screen looks sharp, and has a built-in backlight. Battery life is rated in weeks — there's even audiobook support, too.
Mobot OVO Electric Bicycle
Explore Singapore's Park Connector Network without breaking a sweat using the Mobo OVO Electric Bicycle (S$1,499). It has a range of around 50km to 70km, which should get you most places on the island. And if the dual batteries do run dry, you can still pedal manually. A smooth ride that looks good, too. What's not to like?
Oladance Wearable Stereo
If you need music to set the tempo during your jogs, the Oladance Wearable Stereo is a good choice. Its open-ear design means you can hear your surroundings. It also stays securely in place on the ears, and is splash and sweatproof. Sound quality is pretty good with a wide soundstage, though the lack of noise isolation means it won't fare as well in a noisy environment.
