Sailable, phonable, floatable, wearable, photographical and musical, here are six new diversions to enjoy this month.
BENETEAU OCEANIS YACHT 60
This new Oceanis flagship is a subtle interplay of proportions with a gentle reverse sheer, creating lots of space while retaining an elegant design and excellent sea- keeping abilities. Available from Simpson Marine, this 62ft bluewater yacht features a huge cockpit, a mid-ship galley, an adjustable bimini, and generous spaces for socialising and storage throughout. The three-cabin version with three heads comes in either walnut or light oak, while the roomy master cabin boasts a starboard bed, complete privacy and a stunning sea view.
LEICA D-LUX 7 “A BATHING APE X STASH”
Don’t be fooled by the cartoon camouflage clothing worn by this special- edition, street art-inspired compact Leica. Its wide and fast 35mm-equivalent 24-75mm zoom opens up to a bright f1.7 aperture, imparting full creative freedom to aspiring urban artists even in low-light situations.
GARMIN ENDURO 2
Garmin’s solar-powered and touchscreen- controlled Enduro 2 sets new standards for wearables, with around 48 days of battery life in watch mode and 150 hours of GPS. Functions include every form of health and activity tracking known to mankind, and you even get a flashlight and music.
APPLE IPHONE 14 PRO
Yes, it’s that time of year again when we start considering whether it’s high time to upgrade the old iPhone. As the just-announced 14 Pro features a supersonically fast A16 chip and a 48MP main camera, we wouldn’t be surprised if the answer were in the affirmative.
FLITEBOARD SERIES 2.2
First launched in 2018, this latest version of an environmentally friendly, electric-powered hydrofoil is quieter than the original, with twice the potential power and more control. Invented in Australia, it takes you flying over the water, even without wind or waves. This cult product is also emission-free, wake-free and now virtually silent.
BANG & OLUFSEN BEOPLAY EX
Enhance your listening pleasure with Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay EX wireless earphones with Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation. Wearable without adjustment for hours on end and offering superb sound, they’re available in Gold Tone or Black Anthracite, as well as the original Anthracite Oxygen.
