So Qualcomm just announced the Snapdragon wear 3100 processor. I hear it's time for the next gen smartwatch. Check out the #WhatGear video on how #Qualcomm are going to change the game with the #SnapdragonWear3100.Read More
Qualcomm were kind enough to fly me out to the MWC 2018! It was an interesting trip. I learnt a lot about Qualcomm and what happens behind the scenes in smartphones. Check out this booth tour hosted by me @WhatGearReviewRead More
ShiftWear Trainers are a new startup creating wearable tech with style in mind. This is such a good idea in my opinion.
You know when you buy a pair of shoes or trainers and find your self standing next to someone with the same shoes or trainers. If you have these shoes, you can just pull out you phone load up the app and change the design to something else.
So this means that if your an awesome artist you can have your art or even Marvel or DC fan art (known as fart) on your shoes in a blink of an eye! If you wanted to be really cheeky you could put a NIKE swoosh on the side and if someone complains you change it and be like "...what you talking about?" That to me is WOW! I would buy these if the price is reasonable.
Check out SONYS FES WATCH
Check it out a new Sony product to go on sale soon. It's a watch. Yes it is just a watch. who would have thought Sony would release just a watch. I mean surely it's got to have some kind if motion tracking or heart rate monitoring, a camera or something...
There is something very special about this time piece. It seems that keeping things simple and stripping an idea back to the single component that makes it good,is not a bad idea. Why do I say this? Take a look at this video.
There was so much hype around this product. It did not live up to it. Although the E paper idea was fantastic in my opinion. So how about an entire watch including the strap made up of e paper. Which means you can change the look whenever you want.
This to me is wow and I would definitely wear one. I'm the owner of a Galaxy Neo smartwatch and despite all its functionality. I always leave the Bluetooth off. It drains my phone and watch batteries too quickly. I only use it for the look and to tell the time and it doesn't do that well.
What do you think of the Sony FES Watch? I personally don't like the name.
Check out the awesome new PS4 colours! I also heard they are launching a Gold console in the states. Anyone heard about these new colours hitting the UK shore?
iFit have been hard at it since our last encounter with the fitness company and had delivered a few new impressive looking products to market. So I thought I would take this opportunity to give you a run down of the current iFit wearable line up.
So at the bottom end of the iFit collection we have the iFit Act, it is minimalist in appearance but for just $49.00 from the iFit Shop I think you get some bang for your buck. This little device tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and sleep, which allows you to gain insight to your daily activities and routine. The calories you consume can be logged using the iFit Track app and in conjunction with the calories burned data from the Act the iFit Track app determine your Net Calories score.
I used the App during the WhatGear iFit Challenge and I was pretty impressed with what it had to offer.
The iFit Act is shipped with two separate wristbands in box, so you can with choose to receive a small and medium or a large and extra large.
- 2 Separate Wristband Sizes Included (S+M or L+XL)
- Wireless Sync with Bluetooth® BLE Technology
- 4-6 Month Coin Cell Battery
- 3 LED Indicator Lights
- Android and iOS Mobile Apps Available
The iFit Link is a new addition to the iFit stable the clean and again minimalist look to this band looks great, the link has been decked out with MoveReady™ which automatically detects your movement patterns like walking, running, swimming, and sleeping.
The iFit Link is decked out with four LED lights, which help you track your progress throughout the course of your day. Each light indicates 25% of the goal you have set yourself to complete, this simple display quickly tells you how you are progressing and could motivate you just that bit more to get all four of those LEDs lit up!
As with the iFit Act it is compatible with both Android and iOS but you must have the iPhone 4S and above, iPod Touch 5th Gen and above, and Android 4.3 and above.
The Link's band is available from the iFit store in either black or grey as a stand alone product and costs $59. For an additional $19.99 you can add the Sports Pack which comprises of 3 additional bands that allow you to colour coordinate if you are so inclined..
- Soft, adjustable wristband
