This lens allows you to capture picturesque landscapes, wherever you travel


Here is a question that every traveller has asked: is the perfect picture worth lugging around the many bulky lenses and cameras? While we don’t have a definite answer, we do have a simpler, more compact approach—a way to turn your phone camera pictures into SLR-quality ones. Xenvo Pro Lens Kit is nifty and intelligent, compatible with both Android and iOS. The kit offers a 0.45x wide-angle lens to shoot stunning landscapes without the fear of fish-eye like blurry, dark edges and distorted lines. The pictures are sharp and clear, and the 15x Macro captures all details of close-ups from even half an inch of distance from the subject. The rechargeable LED light is perfect to illuminate frames (when selfies are in question), because it’s stronger than any built-in flash. The best part? All these items come with a sturdy clip-on with reinforced springs and a soft rubber padding. The lens kit also includes a lanyard and an easy-to-carry bag. (From INR9,900;

Keep yourself comfortable in bidet-less toilets with your bum-buddy


Ever been caught in a messy situation with no bidet in sight? No more with TUSHY Travel. This discreet portable bidet comes in two colours and is smaller than a water bottle. Out in the woods, at work, or at school, gone are the days of chaffing toilet paper, with your very own bum-buddy. Its collapsible grip and squeeze design with three nozzles lets you control the water and pressure for a perfect clean. (From $29;

These shoes are fitted with sensors that connect to an app on your phone


Take a step or run a mile, Under Armour has got your feet. Their UA HOVRTM is a stylish and intuitive product, assessing the runner’s body weight to absorb extra energy and propelling them forward with ease. The zero-gravity cushioning is comfortable, plush and gives the perfect bounce. Moreover, the outsole provides an enhanced grip and flex for the feet. The shoes come fitted with a sturdy, high-fidelity sensor that pairs with a phone app, MapMyRunTM, via Bluetooth. The sensor collects all sorts of data: distance, pace, splits and stride length, making the app capable of coaching the runner and narrowing down their running style as well. A truly goal-oriented product. (From INR9,999;

Beat the tropical heat with this portable fan


Portable and light, the Whirlwind Cool Blade-Less Mini Fan fits comfortably in your backpack for a cool breeze on the go. With no pesky spinning blades to get caught in your hair, the fan is adjustable with three speeds. The blade-less fan also comes with a rechargeable built-in battery equipped with a USB port that doubles up as a portable phone charger. This product ships internationally. (From $21.99;

Keep your valuables safe by tracking them with the Tile Mate


With a long Bluetooth range, loud volume, and replaceable batteries, Tile Mate is the perfect tracker for all your valuables. Simply pair the device to the app available for both Android and iOS and know where your valuables are at all times. Customers can see the last place the device was on a map, whether it has been removed, and also use the Tile community to help find it. (From INR2,499;
