Nothing’s CMF launches new supercheap earbuds and a smartwatch

Nothing’s affordability-focused subbrand, CMF, launched more than just a $199 smartphone today. It also debuted a new pair of $59 wireless earbuds and a $69 smartwatch that incorporate the unique flair that Nothing has become known for.

The Buds Pro 2 are CMF’s follow-up to the earbuds it released last year. Unlike CMF’s first iteration of the Buds Pro (which are $10 cheaper), the Buds Pro 2 have a charging case with a “smart” dial that you can twist to adjust the volume or manage playback. The dial is also fully customizable, allowing you to press it to control noise cancellation, activate a voice assistant, or mute your microphone during a video call.

Aside from that nifty switch, the Buds Pro 2 feature hybrid active noise cancellation at up to 50dB, an 11mm bass driver, hi-res audio at up to 990kbps, and spatial audio support. The buds also offer seven hours of audio playback on a single charge and with ANC off (or up to 43 hours with the case).

Meanwhile, the budget-friendly Watch Pro 2 comes with a new interchangeable bezel you can easily swap out for different styles. In addition to a 1.32-inch AMOLED display, the Watch Pro 2 also features a claimed 11 days of battery life, built-in GPS, 120 sports modes, and more than 100 watchfaces (with 80 available at launch).

Both the CMF Watch Pro 2 and Buds Pro 2 come in orange, dark gray, light gray, and blue. The Watch Pro 2 and Buds Pro 2 are available for preorder on CMF’s website, with both devices shipping on July 12th.
