Nothing has announced a trio of new tech items, including its first smartwatch.

However, it's important to note that Nothing will be putting these gadgets out under the banner of its new budget-friendly (but not terribly succinct) CMF by Nothing sub-brand rather than its main-line roster.

The first cab off the rank here is the new Buds Pro. These true wireless earbuds are less translucent than the Nothing Ear 2 but still manage to squeeze in a fair few of the same bells and whistles. They come with hybrid active noise-cancellation, fast pairing, IP54 water and dust resistance, AI-enhanced call quality and 11 hours of battery life on a single charge. Combined with the carry case, you're looking at 39 hours of playback.

The Buds Pro are also a lot looking to be cheaper than the Nothing Ear 2. There's no international or Australian pricing yet, but Nothing will be selling these for $49 in the United States and £49 in the United Kingdom.

Next in the lineup, the Watch Pro is noteworthy in that it is Nothing's first-ever smartwatch. It's got a 1.96-inch AMOLED screen, IP68 water and dust resistance, up to 13 days of battery life, customisable watch faces, built-in GPS and ten different activity tracking modes.  In terms of the tech, Nothing's first wearable can track your steps, heart rate, blood oxygen, sleep and stress.

Like the Buds Pro, Nothing's first smartwatch is also on the thrifty side with a very nice price of $69 in the United States and £69 in the United Kingdom.

Lastly, there's the Power 65W GaN charger.

There's not a huge amount to say about this one. Aside from minimalist aesthetics and the trio of USB ports on it, the most interesting thing about Nothing's fast charger is that it has a chip inside it that can intelligently adjust voltage and current to juice up your devices with better efficiency.

Nothing is also talking up compatibility as a selling point. The Power 65W GaN charger will play nice with a long list of different charging protocols, including PD3.0, QC4.0+/3.0/2.0, SCP, FCP, PPS, AFC, Samsung 9V2A, DCP, and Apple 2.4A.

Nothing will be selling this for $39 in the United States and £39 in the United Kingdom. As with the rest of the range, the Power 65W GaN charger will initially be available as part of a limited drop at the brand's London store later this month but will be available internationally not long after.
