LEMFO LF06

LEMFO LF06 Smartwatch Review

When sent this budget smartwatch for review the expectations were set rather low, after all just how much could they pack into a £50 smartwatch? Things got off to a bumpy start as the watch didn’t allow for an initial language selection and wasn’t set to English by default. Fortunately the icons helped easily track…

Pebble Time Steel

Pebble Time Steel Review

The Pebble Time Steel is the latest top end device in Pebbles range.  Fresh from a Kickstarter campaign, the new Steel Time was recently delivered and replaces an aging first generation original Pebble. Due to arrive with two straps, a leather and steel strap, at the time of review the ‘Steel’ element was missing due…

iFit Activity Tracker

iFit Active Fitness Tracker Review

The iFit activity tracker is a lightweight activity tracker that comes with accessories to allow you to wear it both on your wrist (like a watch) or clipped to your trousers. You could pop it loosely into a pocket, but this isn’t advised as it can reduce accuracy. The wrist strap is a bit fiddly,…

Wellograph Wellness Watch

Wellograph Wellness Watch Review

The Wellograph Wellness watch is a seriously expensive bit of kit aimed at those who want fitness tracking on the go. With fitness trackers recently getting cheaper and cheaper it’s refreshing to see an unashamedly expensive tracker come to market.  Whereas low cost trackers are made from low cost materials, the Wellograph is constructed from premium…

Martian Notifier Smartwatch

Martian Notifier Smartwatch Review

Martian Watches recently unveiled their new smart watch, the Notifier, at CES 2015.  Rather than a full blown screen on your arm that stands out as a smartwatch, the Notifier has been designed as a traditional looking watch that happens to have notification features. In fact anyone glancing at your wrist wouldn’t think anything of…

Huawei B1 TalkBand Review

The Huawei B1 TalkBand is an interesting take on the wearable activity tracker.  It doesn’t just track you movement and sleep but it also features a detachable bluetooth headset! This detachable headset also acts as a screen which displays 4 screens of information: 1) Bluetooth status, time and battery level 2) Pedometer reading 3) Estimated…

Withings Pulse O2

Withings Pulse O2 Activity Tracker Review

The Withings Pulse O2 joins the growing number of activity trackers available but has an additional trick up it’s sleeve: it can measure the saturation of oxygen in your blood via a built in oximeter. Provided to me for review I was impressed with what a nice, light, little unit it is and that it…

Withings Blood Pressure Monitor

Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor Review

The Withings Blood Pressure Monitor is an easy to operate device that allows you to measure your blood pressure and heart rate and track the results via the excellent Withings app and website. As this could well be an occasional use device for a lot of people it was nice to see Withings have designed…

Misfit Shine

Misfit Shine Activity Tracker Review

The Misfit Shine is a fantastic looking little gadget, it’s a pity they couldn’t call it the ‘Pebble’ as that’s what it resembles. In the box you get everything you need and setup is very easy, you’ll have it up and tracking in less than 10 minutes.This has been really well designed and allows you…

Pebble Watch

Pebble Smart Watch

As a fan of the watch, something that seems to be in less and less use these days with people using smart phones to check the time, the idea of one that links to a phone, can change watch faces, control music playback, and last longer than a day was very existing. Much has been…
