This week in accessories: Basis Peak smart watch, Seek Thermal Camera and more

October 3, 2014

Welcome back to our weekly look at some of the newest iOS device accessories. Along with a slate of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus cases, we’re taking a look at a fitness-oriented smart watch and more.

Seek Thermal Camera


Much like the FLIR One case, the new Seek Thermal Camera brings thermal imaging to an iPhone. Plugging directly into the Lightning port, the camera is compatible with a number of iOS devices, including the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It can even be used with most cases. Thermal imaging can be used in a number of situations, including for safety/security, home improvement, boating, and more.

The camera retails for $199.99 and can be purchased from the company’s site now.

Ballistic Tough Jacket Maxx for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus


Available for both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the Tough Jacket Maxx can protect your handset from drops of up to 7 feet. Along with reinforced corners, a raised lip helps protect the screen from shock and scratches. Users can also take advantage of a removable screen protector and a rugged belt holster.

The case for both iPhone models is available in two different color choices – black or black and gray. Retailing for $49.99 for both models, it can be ordered directly from Ballistic now.

Basis Peak smart watch


Intel-owned Basis has recently unveiled its second-generation smart watch, the Peak. Much like the Apple Watch, the Peak brings together the best parts of a smart watch and fitness tracker. Along with activity and sleep tracking, the Peak’s sensors can provide information regarding heart rate, perspiration, and skin temperature. It will eventually be able to display notifications from an iPhone. Protected with a Gorilla Glass 3 cover, the Peak is water resistant up to 5 ATM. Users can also swap out straps.

The watch will cost $199.99 and be available in November at a number of retailers, including Best Buy and Buyers will be able to select from a matte black or brushed silver version. For more information, visit the company’s site.

Candy Clip for the iPhone 6 from Hard Candy


A minimalist case choice for the iPhone 6, the new Candy Clip from Hard Candy protects the handset’s corners and screen. It can also be used as a stand with the built-in card slot. Buyers can select from a red, blue, or clear version of the case. It costs $29.99 and can be ordered from Hard Candy now.

Phiaton BT 220NC Earbuds


The BT 220NC earbuds offer active noise cancellation along with a wireless Bluetooth 4.0 connection. The Apt-X technology is designed to increase digital streaming efficiency and improve overall dynamic range. The noise cancellation can block up to 95 percent of ambient background noise. A built-in battery can provide up to 300 hours of standby and 17 hours of music listening. With the monitor button, users can mute music and noise cancelling so they can hear the sounds around them without having to remove the earbuds.

Available to order later this month, the earbuds will retail for $179.99. For more information, visit Phiaton’s site now.

ScreenGuardz Pure for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from BodyGuardz


Providing the same natural feel and clarity of an iPhone’s glass screen, the ScreenGuardz Pure is available for both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The protector is easy to install has an anti-smudge coating to help resist fingerprints. The chemically strengthened glass of the protector is designed to break into small, harmless pieces if ever damaged.

The iPhone 6 Plus protector is $44.95 while the iPhone 6 version is $5 less. Both can be ordered from BodyGuardz now.
