Here’s to your health

JBL’s Reflect Fit Heart Rate wireless sports headphones boast JBL Signature Sound and are great for training “in the zone”. The heart-monitoring technology is compatible with most heartrate-enabled fitness apps, so you can stream the pulse readings directly to your phone for data analysis and receive real-time updates through the headphones, all with just a single touch.

Ronaldo at your service

The symbol of one of the world’s most popular footballers appears on the CR7 Cristiano Ronaldo screen-protection glass from Panzer Glass. The concept is “The world’s greatest offence deserves the world’s best defence”. The CR7 symbol appears on the cover during sleep mode and there’s no disturbance while the phone is in use. With top certification in terms of protection, the screen is smooth to the touch and resistant to finger smudges and scratches. Sold for iPhone6 and 6 Plus, iPhone7 and 7 Plus, and iPhone8 and 8 Plus, the price starts at Bt1,490.

Expect to pay Bt18,990.
