Garmin Tacx Neo Bike Smart
SMART BIKE TRAINER
If you enjoy cycling but prefer not to battle the elements - or the pandemic - the Tacx Neo smart bike trainer by Garmin could be what you need.
It simulates real-life outdoor rides with characteristics such as dynamic inertia, road feel and gear feel.
Experience different road surfaces, such as cobblestone, with realistic-feeling gear changes from the comfort of your home. Its built-in fans even adjust the strength of the wind depending on rider speed.
The bike trainer is compatible with training apps such as Swift and TrainerRoad, via Bluetooth and ANT+.
FOLDABLE LAPTOP STAND
It can be tilted 25 or 35 degrees when you are typing on your laptop, 45 degrees for a work set-up with a mouse and external keyboard, and 60 degrees when you are browsing the Web or watching Netflix on smaller devices such as tablets.
It can also be turned into a 25.4cm-tall stand if you prefer to stand while working.
