Discreetly take phone calls without having to battle background babble and wind interference. A durable battery provides 4.5 hours of talk time and up to 10 days of standby service. $149.99,

Shoot it The Olympus TOUGH TG-810 takes you from deep-sea dive to night on the town without getting battered and bruised. Dunk it 10 metres underwater, drop it from a height of two metres and the shock-proof camera still manages to shoot 14 megapixel stills, 720p HD video and sharp 3-D images. If you forget where a snapshot was taken, built-in GPS technology tags images with location data and map co-ordinates. $399.99,
