Roman Holiday
Ferrari has unveiled a prototype of its new Roma model—a mid-front-engine, 2+ coupé inspired by the carefree days of 1950s and ’60s Rome. Despite its timeless look, the Roma delivers cutting-edge performance and technology, with an eight-speed DCT gearbox and a turbo-charged V8 engine that reaches 620 cv at 7500 rpm. It’s expected to roll into showrooms this year with a price tag of $225,000. ferrari.com

On Track
Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active2 not only keeps users connected, but also helps them reach health and fitness goals. The smartwatch tracks more than 39 workouts, makes calls and links to social media apps and Spotify. It’s available in 40mm and 44mm sizes and two styles: aluminum with a Fluoroelastomer band or stainless steel with a leather band. From $250; samsung.com

Ahead of the Curve
Designed as an alternative to clunky towers or boxy sound bars, Cleer Audio’s Crescent Smart Speaker sports a sculptural silhouette. It’s equipped with eight custom, 40mm full-range drivers and two 3.3-inch subwoofers and envelops listeners in three-dimensional, high-definition sound. The speaker supports hi-res digital audio formats as well as streaming. Available in August; $600. cleeraudio.com
