Style Meets Innovation

FAST TRACK  BMW’s 2017 740e xDrive marries power and sustainability with new technology that integrates a four-cylinder gas engine and an electric machine. This plug-in hybrid’s greenhouse potential is 30 percent less than that of a gas-powered 740i. All-wheel drive ensures maximum traction, directional stability and agility in all weather and road conditions. Optional features include a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System. Arriving in the U.S. in August 2017, the model is priced from $89,100. bmwusa.com

DEEP-SEA SHOTS  Body Glove’s Optrix kit turns an iPhone into a durable underwater camera. The case is waterproof up to 33 feet; the kit comes with two interchangeable lenses. $170. optrix.com

VINYL VIBE  Moore & Giles and Crosley Radio have partnered to create the Commonwealth Collection C10 Turntable. With a low-vibration motor and shock-absorbent feet, it delivers high-quality sound. Available in mahogany or birch, the turntable is topped with leather laser-cut with a map showing the region between Lynchburg and Louisville, where the companies are based. $840; mooreandgiles.com

PERSONAL TECH  Jade J, Inc., recently released JadeBud headphones, which feature a built-in microphone and volume control, and the PowerBoost, a 3,000mAh power bank that gives any smartphone at least one full charge. Both are available in five colors with metallic accents; $50 and $60, respectively. jadej.com
