November 2022.- Garmin has just announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2022, in which it has registered a global turnover of 1,140 million dollars, compared to 1,191 million dollars obtained during the same period of the previous year, mainly due to to the strengthening of the US dollar. Gross margin increased by 58.8% and operating margin was 21.0%, while operating income reached 239 million dollars, which represents a decrease of 15% compared to the analogous quarter of 2021.

During these months and since the presentation of its Inreach services, the firm has registered more than 10,000 SOS responses through its Response Center, which translates into the importance that bidirectional satellite messaging is assuming for its users. Added to all this is the recognition for the nineteenth consecutive year of being ranked first in aviation product support, awarded by Aviation International News, as well as five awards for the excellence of its devices and being named Manufacturer of the Year by the National Association of Marine Electronics for the eighth consecutive time.

In the words of Salvador Alcover, general director of Garmin Iberia: “ This third quarter, revenues suffered the consequences of the strengthening of the US dollar, and the performance of some fitness devices, such as indoor cycling. However, gross margin increased, and operating margin remained strong from the previous quarter. Thus, based on the trends that we have been able to observe this year, we must adjust our revenue forecasts for future financial results. We believe that the future increase in EPS, our innovative product line and our vertical integration strategy will allow us to move forward strongly in this changing economic environment .”

Data by sectors

Regarding the data by sectors, the Outdoor segment stands out , in which turnover grew by 5% in the third quarter, mainly as a result of the sale of adventure watches and inReach devices and services. Gross and operating margin were 65% and 36%, respectively, which reflected in operating income of $121 million. During the quarter, inReach Messenger was introduced, a versatile new communication-focused device with global two-way text messaging, location sharing and SOS capabilities.

For its part, the turnover of the Aviation sector rose by 4% during this period, driven by growth in various product lines, mainly in the aftermarket. Gross and operating margins were 73% and 26%, respectively, for $48 million of operating income. During the quarter, the firm announced that Tactical Air has selected the G3000® Integrated Flight Platform to modernize the US Department of Defense’s fleet of F-5 aircraft in the Navy and Marine Corps.

Meanwhile, in the Nautical segment, revenues decreased by 5%, mainly due to the return of typical seasonal trends. Gross margin and operating margins for this segment were 56% and 23%, respectively, translating to $45 million of operating income. During this period, the multinational company launched the LiveScope® XR system, which brings innovative live scanning sonar technology to deep sea fishing, allowing anglers to view real-time images of fish and structure up to 500 feet. in front of or under the boat.

As for the Automotive area , revenue was down 2%, although the decline in consumer products was offset by growth in OEM programs with car brands. Gross margin was 40%, and an operating loss of $16 million was posted due to investments in OEM programs. During the quarter, it was announced that our Tread® Navigators have been selected by Arctic Cat, Inc. to become standard equipment on select side-by-side vehicles beginning in 2023.

Finally, the data for the Fitness segment decreased by 18% due to lower revenues from wellness products (represented by families such as: Venu®, Vívomove®, Vívofit® Jr, etc.) and indoor cycling (such as the brand of Tacx® products). Gross margin and operating margins were 53% and 15%, respectively, resulting in operating income of $41 million. During this period, the firm has presented its smartwatch Venu® Sq 2that stands out for offering up to 11 days of battery life in smart watch mode and being able to offer a true picture of the level of well-being 24 hours a day throughout the week. To do this, it carries out a complete and detailed physiological monitoring with advanced control of sleep, stress, energy, hydration, breathing and even the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. In addition, it has more than 25 integrated sports applications and provides real-time connectivity, alerts in case of incidents and the possibility of making payments directly from it. And all this under an attractive design with a 1.4-inch rectangular AMOLED touch screen with an aluminum bezel.

Added to all this is the company holding its sixth annual developer conference, in which hundreds of developers gathered virtually to explore new and innovative ideas.

YAMAHA SPORT TW-ES5A: the sound that accompanies you to achieve the best times

Specially developed for sports lovers, the new headphones have been designed to provide maximum stability and comfort along with superior sound. Thus, they have splash- and sweat-resistant silicone tips that have been mounted separately from the body of the headphones, which has an impact on maximum support and fit, while helping to dampen vibrations that occur when you are wearing. moving.

In addition to listening to music and at the same time being aware of the external sound when desired, they stand out for having Listening Care technology, which optimally corrects the sound balance according to volume and voices, achieving full-range audio at lower volumes.

October 2022. Yamaha, a leading European company in the manufacture of sound systems, has just launched its new wireless sports headphones on the market: Yamaha True Wireless Sport TW-ES5A.

YAMAHA SPORT TW-ES5A: the sound that accompanies you to achieve the best times

YAMAHA SPORT TW-ES5A: the sound that accompanies you to achieve the best times

In five different shades, including Racing Blue, they have an attractive and motivating design. And being specially designed for the most active users, they have specific characteristics that make them ideal for enjoying music in any circumstance.

This is the case, for example, of the True Sound technology, which provides the best sound in all situations, both vocally and in relation to musical instruments, and brings listeners closer to the artist through a clear and very realistic.

Motion, vibration and sweat proof

As for their external design, they have been made with highly resistant and durable materials that at no time diminish the sound quality and that incorporate a highly permeable mesh to guarantee that the sound reaches the ear clearly.

Even so that they are always in place and do not fall or move with the movement generated during physical activity, the Yamaha True Wireless Sport TW-ES5A have ergonomically designed silicone tips that, having been assembled Independently from the body of the headphones, they are capable of holding them and keeping them fixed in place (distributing the support at different points of the ear), and contributing to damping unwanted vibrations that occur when moving and that can especially affect bass frequencies.

In addition, they are included in four different sizes to choose the one that best fits each ear. Thanks to them, a more optimal seal is produced so that listening is of even higher quality, especially in terms of bass, and also translates into higher isolation from ambient noise.

On the other hand, they are protected against splashes of water and sweat, with the IPX7 classification.

ambient sound mode

Another of the elements that characterize these headphones is that they allow the athlete to be immersed in their music but also to be aware of what is happening around them. And all this thanks to the ambient sound mode, which allows you to listen to both the audio and the rest of the sounds that are generated around you.

Greater clarity at lower volume

In the same way, to promote safe listening, they have Yamaha’s exclusive Listening Care technology, which is based on the characteristics of the human ear, which is more sensitive to some frequencies (notes) and less to others, being able to perceive Better media and voices. Thus, there are some frequencies that we hear worse at low volume, so we tend to turn it up to appreciate them, putting our hearing at risk.

For this reason, what this system does is take into account the music that reaches us and, at the same time, the noise of the environment, carrying out an adjustment of the levels and the equalization to achieve an optimal balance at any volume. As a result we obtain a natural sound, easy to listen to at low volumes and a reduction, therefore, of listening fatigue that occurs due to excessive levels.

Clear conversations and great versatility of use

Although designed for exercise, the Yamaha True Wireless Sport TW-ES5A are packed with features that make them highly versatile and therefore equally perfect for everyday use. Thus, it is possible to maintain clear and crystal clear voice calls thanks to the incorporation of Qualcomm® cVcTM wireless connectivity technology.

Meanwhile, high-performance MEMS microphones in both earbuds are dedicated to calls, separating incoming voice from other noise during sound capture.

Similarly, its TrueWirelessTM Mirroring technology makes it possible to carry out independent sound transmission (left and right) for greater playback stability. Added to this is the Role-Swap function, which prevents battery levels from decreasing unevenly.

Beyond intuitive handling

The new earphones are so intuitive that the simple gesture of removing an earphone will automatically pause the music, while putting the earphone back in its place will resume playback. It is also possible to activate the Siri or Google Assistant voice assistants with just one button.

While the in-ear detection and buttons offer easy control, the headset control app allows you to extend these functions, such as adjusting the equalization to tailor the music to the listener’s preferences. It is also possible to quickly activate

Also, thanks to the game mode they offer, the user will enjoy a reduction in the delay between sound and video, optimizing performance for the handling of the game and video content.

A high autonomy

Yamaha True Wireless Sport TW-ES5A also stand out for offering autonomy of up to 34 hours, 9h per charge and 25 more thanks to the accompanying case, which is used at the same time to store and transport them.

Finally, in Spain they are available in two shades: black and white.

MSRP Yamaha True Wireless Sport TW-ES5A: 199 euros (VAT included)

The entire iPhone 14 lineup features innovative security capabilities that can provide emergency assistance when it matters most. With a new dual-core accelerometer capable of detecting G-force measurements up to 256G and a new high dynamic range gyroscope, Crash Detection on iPhone can now detect a serious car accident and automatically call emergency services when a user is unconscious or unable to reach your iPhone. These capabilities build on existing components, such as the barometer, which can now detect cabin pressure changes, GPS for additional input for speed changes, and the microphone,4 which can recognize loud noises typical of severe car accidents. Advanced Apple-designed motion algorithms trained with over a million hours of real-world driving and crash log data deliver even greater accuracy. When paired with Apple Watch, Crash Detection seamlessly harnesses the unique strength of both devices to help users efficiently. When a severe crash is detected, the emergency services call interface will appear on the Apple Watch, as it is more likely to be closer to the user, while the call is made through the iPhone if it is within range to obtain the best connection possible. Crash Detection perfectly leverages the unique strength of both devices to help users efficiently. When a serious crash is detected, the emergency services call interface will appear on the Apple Watch, as it is more likely to be closer to the user, while the call is made through the iPhone if it is within range to obtain the best connection possible. Crash Detection perfectly leverages the unique strength of both devices to help users efficiently. When a serious crash is detected, the emergency services call interface will appear on the Apple Watch, as it is more likely to be closer to the user, while the call is made through the iPhone if it is within range to obtain the best connection possible.

The iPhone 14 lineup also introduces Emergency SOS via Satellite, which combines custom components deeply integrated with software to allow antennas to connect directly to a satellite, enabling messaging with emergency services when there is no Wi-Fi or cellular coverage. . Satellites are low-bandwidth moving targets and messages can take minutes to arrive. Because every second counts, with Satellite Emergency SOS, iPhone asks some vital questions to assess the user’s situation and shows them where to point their phone to connect to a satellite. The initial questionnaire and follow-up messages are then relayed to centers staffed by Apple-trained specialists who can request help on the user’s behalf. This innovative technology also allows users to manually share their satellite location with Find My when there is no cellular or Wi-Fi connection, providing a sense of security when hiking or camping off the grid. Emergency SOS via satellite will be available to users in the US and Canada in November, and the service will be free for two years.

BANG & OLUFSEN launches its new Beosound Theater soundbar

Created with the ambition to be the world’s most powerful and immersive soundbar , Danish audio brand Bang & Olufsen today announced Beosound Theatre: an innovative and thoughtful high-end soundbar that delivers the power of a home theater. , in a single product.

“With Beosound Theatre, we unleash the full potential of high-quality streaming services now available to customers and bring the magic of the cinematic experience into the home. At the same time, this beautiful soundbar is built to last for decades thanks to its modular design, which allows it to be upgraded rather than replaced,” said Kristian Teär, CEO of Bang & Olufsen.

A BANG & OLUFSEN TV EXPERIENCE DESIGNED FOR ALMOST ANY SCREEN

Bang & Olufsen is famous for its unique approach to craftsmanship and design. Based on the principles of modularity, customers can easily transform the soundbar into a full wall-mounted or floor-mounted Bang & Olufsen TV experience, so it blends in seamlessly and takes up no more space than their current TV.

The modular design concept also applies to the replaceable TV screens and sound bar cover. The aluminum ‘wings’ are also extendable for customers whose TV screens grow larger as they are upgraded, showing that Beosound Theater continues to provide seamlessly integrated solutions for longevity.

 

“We know our customers want to invest in products that last, so the Beosound Theater has been designed in a modular way to outlast many televisions in their lifetime. We have created a solution that allows the product to be upgraded rather than replaced, and a product that can evolve over time,” said Director of Product Circularity Mads Kogsgaard Hansen.

FROM SOUND BAR TO SOUND CENTER

Although Beosound Theater is a powerful single product solution, it can evolve to be used as a specialized sound center, providing new possibilities to build your home cinema. With seven built-in outputs and support for up to 16 external speakers, it can be the heart of a complete Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 surround setup. In this configuration, Beosound Theater functions as a center speaker that fuses Dolby Atmos decoding and custom post-processing with Bang & Olufsen’s proprietary True Image algorithm to maximize the capabilities of all Bang & Olufsen speakers .

In addition, Beosound Theater includes a new bass management system that is second to none. Whereas other systems just send the bass to the loudest speaker, usually the subwoofer, Beosound Theater uses all the Bang & Olufsen speakers in the system to work together as a single unit. Not only does this give you the full potential of the entire system, but it also helps you control resonance in your listening room, ensuring that the different speakers are working together rather than separately.

“You can buy the Beosound Theater as a soundbar and later add a pair of rear speakers like the Beolab 28 in a triangular configuration that delivers incredible spatial sound performance while continuing the overall goal of minimizing product, clutter and waste. engagement with space. All you have to do is connect them. This flexibility also means that our customers are not limited by their initial purchase decision, which in turn helps us extend the life of the Beosound Theater and increase the likelihood of multiple owners,” said technology specialist Jakob Dyreby .

The Police warn of the summer scam in Spain and Marbella: scams in vacation rentals

The summer scam has exploded this year and already exceeds the figures for 2019. Given this trend, the National Police, together with companies selling and renting villas,  luxury homes  in Fotocasa, Airbnb, Confianza Online, have launched the alert to that users be more careful with possible scams in vacation rentals.

Remember that only during this 2022, more than 6,000 Spaniards will fall into the trap of scammers like those who have starred in the program. So before you put down a down payment for what seems like a bargain, make sure the apartment exists.

Faced with this situation, the General Directorate of the Police has launched this Thursday a series of recommendations to avoid being a victim of fraud. In this way, they warn that citizens who are not used to reserving an apartment or house online or who do not know how platforms like Airbnb work can be an easy target for organizations dedicated to this type of fraud.

So that users can book with peace of mind and find a trusted host this summer, the National Police, Airbnb and Confianza Online have worked together so that guests can be alert to detect and avoid fraud.

Some of the signs and tips to avoid scams when booking summer vacations are:

  1. Beware of messages with suspicious links. Don’t click on links in emails you don’t trust. They may contain links to fake web pages that mimic Airbnb’s design in an attempt to steal personal information or infect devices. In this situation, please return to the home page
  2. typing in your browser and continue browsing from there. Find out here how to detect if an email or website really belongs to Airbnb.
    Beware of offers that are too good to be true. Beware of offers that combine excessively low prices with very attractive images or accommodations. If an owner wants to make too many changes during the booking process (offers you to pay differently, sends you contact addresses that don’t match the listing, offers you a different listing that wasn’t on the page, etc.) it could be something behind a criminal who wants to avoid your location. To avoid this, look for ads that have a lot of positive reviews and read them carefully. This will allow you to detect if there are any negative aspects that several guests point out and that could tarnish your vacation. You can also verify that the host’s identity and other account details have been verified or confirmed.
  3. Communication and payment, always on the platform. If they ask you to make a deposit or a bank transfer, if they give you a PDF or paper invoice or offer you a discount for paying outside the platform, be wary. Pay special attention if that person proposes to use for payment companies that are normally dedicated to sending money, bank checks, money orders. If they suggest payment methods outside the platform, it is most likely that they intend to carry out some kind of fraud. Therefore, you should always make payments and communicate through the Airbnb website or app. Whenever you communicate, book and pay through Airbnb you will have the security guaranteed by the multiple protection system. If the host never asks you to speak by other means or sends you emails, that’s a good sign.
  4. You suspect a tone of urgency or inconsistencies on the part of the host. Scammers often try to rush or pressure guests into booking, show inconsistencies in the language in which they express themselves and in their nationalities, areas of residence or telephone prefixes, as well as in the text of the accommodation advertisement. Do not feel pressured, before deciding on an accommodation, carefully read the profile of the host, the comments of previous guests and, for example, use the image comparator available in the main Internet search engines, and check if the images correspond to different rentals located in different geographical areas.
