Today in New York City, DJI unveiled the new Spark drone with a focus on portability and gesture-controls. This comes after a busy year for the industry leader in the drone category following the release of its Phantom 4 Advanced.

DJI claims that users will be able to go from in-hand to in-the-air taking photos in just seconds. Geared towards entry-level pilots looking to capture drone-quality images and video, Spark has a number of consumer-friendly features.

Today’s news also includes new smartphone apps with quick and simple editing features in line with what we saw from GoPro in the fall. Full details below.

As well, today’s news includes a slight price drop on the HD 8 while the Fire 7 stays at the same price.

And thanks to the recently announced FreeTime unlimited, parents are in more control over how their kids spend time than ever before. More details and a special launch-day deal are below.

Alto’s Odyssey is coming this summer, catch the first glimpse of gameplay here [Video]

From 9to5Toys

Two years after releasing Alto’s Adventure, Built by Snowman has revealed the first trailer for the sequel of the award winning title, Alto’s Odyssey. Slated for launch this summer on iOS and, presumably Android, the next rendition continues with visually appealing gameplay. The teaser trailer is quick, but we do get a glimpse of the scenery, which appears to be a desert. There aren’t many more details at this time, but we expect for Snowman to roll out more info over the coming months.

In conjunction with today’s announcement, the original Alto’s Adventure has gone on sale for $1.99 (Reg. $5). You’ll find that and all the rest of today’s best iOS deals in our daily app roundup.

The new Huawei Fit wearable drops the bells and whistles in favor of all week battery life

It’s been a big day for Huawei. After unveiling its new Mate 9 Android smartphone, we’re now getting our first look at the brand’s latest Fitness Tracker. Huawei Fit has a familiar watch-like design but it doesn’t run Android Wear. Users will be able to enjoy all the classic features akin to other fitness trackers on the market, including heart-rate monitoring, exercise-specific activities, smartphone alerts and even sleep tracking.

Huawei states that its newest wearable is rated for six days of use on a single charge. It also has a full-size display but it’s limited to black and white (a driving force behind its extended battery life). Additional specs include a Corning Gorilla 3 Glass face and a 5ATM water-resistant rating. Fit is 39.5mm wide, so it splits the gap between the two Apple Watch sizes that are currently available. Its $130 price tag sits just below Fitbit’s Charge 2 ($150), which is bound to be one of its main competitors. Both offer similar features although Huawei leans heavily on its watch-like design. The Fit wearable is available for purchase today at Amazon.

With the advent of digital photography and the impressive optics of iPhone 7, Kodak has struggled to keep up. While it has managed to reinvent itself with digital cameras, there is still room to grow. Insert the Kodak Ektra. An Android-based smartphone with throwback styling from the brand’s classic instant cameras. Named after the 1940’s rangefinder, Ektra is covered in a leather composite material with a large camera on one side and a full display on the other. There is a slight bump from the optics to support the 21-megapixel sensor from Sony below.

Inside, you’ll find 32GB of storage and a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor. The five-inch 1080p display runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. A 3000mAh battery and 3GB of RAM round out the list of specs. Of course, this is being played up as a photography-enthusiast’s device. Kodak will be recommending a variety of third-party camera apps to supplement the optics, including Lightroom, VSCO and others. Kodak is planning a European release for Ektra in December with plans for a US announcement still in the works.
