Belkin bolsters MagSafe and Apple Watch Series 7 with Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1 update and separate Screenforce screen protector

Belkin is one of the makers of Apple accessories that Apple deems worthy of having its products on sale in its physical and online stores, and with a heritage almost as long as Apple itself, the company is, without no doubt, one of the top of the line accessories and hardware. manufacturers around the world.

The company’s latest Apple Watch Series 7 accessories are definitely worth noting. The first is its Screenforce Tempered Glass 2-in-1 Treated Screen Protect + Bumper for Apple Watch.

The second is not only for Apple Watch Series 7 models (with the faster 15W charging supported by Series 7 watches), but also offers 15W Magsafe charging and 5W charging of the models AirPods and AirPods Pro in this nifty 3-in-1 stand that people love.

Let’s start with the Apple Watch Series 7 screen protectors. Available for $39.95 each of Belkin’s own siteand from JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys, David Jones, and Amazon, there are some great features that really set Belkin’s Screenforce protector apart from all those cheaper screen protectors on phone kiosks and online. .

An antimicrobial coating, which is not only antimicrobial but also protects the protector from fading and degradation, is especially useful in our post-COVID reality.

I mean, we could always ask who’s watching the guardians, but Belkin has figured out who’s protecting the protectors, that’s for sure.

Other features including high quality, clear glass made in Japan to absorb shock and prevent scuffs and scratches, with 9H scratch resistance to protect against the kind of damage from everyday wear and tear you would see on the cheaper no-name branded models.

Of particular importance are the curved edges, which not only preserve the look of your Apple Watch, but also preserve the feel and tactile experience of the screen, ensuring precise touch sensitivity through an intelligent glass composition that reacts like the screen. original screen.

I can certainly attest to the fact that some of the cheaper protectors I’ve used in the past inhibit the touchscreen experience, and when you can’t be tactile, well, it’s more than fair to stay that these lower models don’t feel right.

In a waking age where feelings are everything, and even part of the plot of Star Trek Discovery Season 4, Belkin’s preservation of tactility ensures he really does have the feel-good factor fully taken care of.

Heck, even Obi-Wan from Star Wars told Luke to “extend with your feelings” in the original movie, and while Luke doesn’t wear an Apple Watch, is there any doubt he would have liked one – protected by a ScreenFORCE protector? May the force be with you, after all.

Next up is a polycarbonate bumper, also designed to protect the edges of the watch from scratches and dings, and as you’d absolutely expect, this device snaps onto your Apple Watch for easy application.

This reinforces Belkin’s commitment to a more sustainable future, with packaging being one of the company’s many goals to help achieve its plan to become 100% carbon neutral in scope 2 d emissions. 2025.

Then there’s the new and improved version of Belkin’s Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1 Wireless Charger with MagSafe 15W.

Upgraded to support 15W fast charging on Apple Watch Series 7, this new model guarantees you a 0-80% charge in about 45 minutes, up to 33% faster than Series 6.
