These Bluetooth-enabled ‘tags’ will let you listen to your tunes wirelessly and if used with a phone you can take or make calls. The minimal design works well – just a small volume control – that doubles as a transport control – and separate multifunction button for call-answering (or ignoring), mute and also voice dialling. The OT Tags seemed just as happy with a crusty old mobile as with a modern smartphone. The ear-buds come with alternative bud sizes and sit tight in the ear. So if you’re inclined to hang off a climbing-wall whilst with Cliff or The Edge playing, you can still listen out for that important call.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT3

RH Numbers

Built-in phone cameras won’t do justice to any location, especially that beautiful vista you’ve spent half a day climbing to see. The Lumix DMC-FT3 shoots detailed, clear pictures with some very good colour reproduction; plus it includes lots of extras for adventurous types. The indestructible-looking construction is tough enough to withstand a 2-metre drop (at least) and, for watery types, it can be submerged to a depth of 12 metres. The built-in compass, altimeter and barometer attach all manner of data to your pictures, but perhaps most impressive is the GPS function that will display your precise location live across the viewfinder – Panasonic claims there are over a million landmarks registered. Quite remarkable and rather spooky.
