The CMF by Nothing brand announced its first three products today. The goal of the Nothing sub-brand is to produce devices with interesting designs at a cheaper price than Nothing’s own solutions for a wider range of customers. CMF’s first three products were the Buds Pro wireless headphones, the Watch Pro smartwatch and the CMF Power 65W GaN charger.
The CMF Buds Pro wireless headphones are equipped with an active noise reduction system that can handle external noise up to 45 dBA in a wide range of up to 5000 Hz. The headphones are equipped with 10mm drivers with a liquid crystal polymer membrane and support Ultra Bass technology.
The manufacturer states that the CMF Buds Pro are equipped with the largest battery capacity of any audio device from Nothing, allowing up to 6.5 hours of active use with active noise cancellation activated and up to 11 hours without it. Taking into account the charging case, the total autonomy is 22 and 39 hours respectively. The new product has a quick charge function that allows up to 5 hours of operation in 10 minutes.
The CMF Buds Pro will be available in dark gray, light gray and orange. The headphones cost $42 in India and will initially go on sale there.
The CMF Watch Pro smartwatch has a 1.96-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 410 × 502 pixels and a peak brightness of more than 600 cd/m2. The screen features a 58Hz refresh rate, providing smoother image movement compared to devices in the same price range that still support a 30Hz refresh rate. The new product has an integrated GPS module and offers support for many training modes.
The watch is equipped with heart rate sensors and blood oxygen level monitoring and can also monitor stress levels and sleep quality. The most interesting feature of the new product is support for answering calls. The watch is equipped with a microphone and a speaker and works together with a smartphone. There is a dial pad and access to the contact list, and AI algorithms help improve sound quality. The battery life is stated to be 11 days.
The CMF Watch Pro smartwatch will be available in two colors: a dark gray matte aluminum case and a dark gray or ash gray strap, and a polished metallic gray aluminum case with an orange strap. The model with a matte case costs $54, while the polished aluminum case costs $60.
