I have been sharing a number of wearables, fitness bands and smartwatches over the past 2 weeks, available from GearBest. It is an ongoing collaboration where they provide review units for my assessment. There is a wearable for everyone. Want a slim fitness band with…

I noticed that many of my readers love smartwatches, so here’s another one from GearBest. This one even has a coupon code to give additional discounts. This smartwatch is Q2 “Siri” Smartwatch. A brief search on the Internet reveals that it is also known as…

Here’s another product that GearBest asked me to share to my readers. The Ulefone GW01 is a round face smartwatch with heartrate sensor – but that’s not all. It also has a body temperature sensor! I studied the specs on the GearBest website as well…

As part of the ongoing collaboration with GearBest to provide new gadget products for my impartial review, I will be sharing some noteworthy products that GearBest is offering on their website. I usually do not ask for financial benefits to my contribution. What I like to get is either complimentary products…

GearBest has sent me another smartwatch to review. This is the Haier G6. Not to be confused with the Haier Watch announced during MWC 2016, the Haier G6 runs on the same Mediatek MTK2502C chipset as Zeblaze Crystal which I have previously reviewed. Design wise,…

For any smartwatch running on Android Wear, the screen interface and feature set is identical. So Android Wear makers use exterior design and add-on software to differentiate one from one other. Here is what I feel about the 2nd-generation Moto 360 smartwatch by Motorola. Less…

ASUS ZenWatch 2 Review

February 27, 2016 0

The ASUS ZenWatch 2 was launched in October 2015 and retails for S$229, making it the cheapest Android Wear smartwatch. I was not that keen to get one because it runs on Android Wear which I already experienced on the Sony Smartwatch 3 and I…

To be honest, it is not easy to decide which activity band to buy in GearBest. There are just too many brands and models and varying features and prices. But when GearBest Marketing Manager recommended this Vidonn (唯动) X6S smart sports bracelet for a review,…

MTK2502 Smart Watch

January 16, 2016 3

Last week, I caught up with the GearBest Marketing Manager and asked if there are any items that GearBest would like me to review. She offered this smartwatch by Haier. After reviewing the spec, I find that the user interface is similar to the Zeblaze Crystal that…

Year End Gift Guide 2015

December 14, 2015 0

My last year’s gift guide was quite popular, and so I’ve decided to do up another gift guide for this year. And like last year, all these products I recommend are personally reviewed (unless indicated otherwise). Prices indicated are recommended retail price, so the street price could…

Smartwatch lovers would not have missed this: the Samsung Gear S2 is designed to look just like a normal roundface timepiece. And this time, Samsung has got it right in so many ways, while having a handful of misses too. Works with All Android devices…

Pebble is the brand that defines today’s smartwatch, breaking Kickstarter record in 2012 and sold 1 million units within a year. When Pebble Time was announced early this year, it once again broke Kickstarter crowd-funding record. Being a first-time Pebble watch user, I do not carry any preconceived…

When I first heard about the ASUS VivoWatch and saw press images, I thought it was another full-fledged smartwatch. It didn’t take me long to find that it is actually a good looking activity band, something that seems to be lacking in the wearable market.…

The smartwatches running on MTK6260 chipsets (like the AiWatch GT08+) do not work well with Android Lollipop 5.0 for Bluetooth notification. Gearbest assured me that the next smartwatch they were sending to me will work more reliably, so I agreed to take it in for…

After making a few personal orders and blogging about them, GearBest.com found my site, and apparently determined that it is influential enough to contact me for collaboration. What they do is to ship me products so that I can try out and publish my reviews. I…

In this week’s digest, I share what’s happened over the past 2 weeks in my life, and what’s going to happen over the next 2 weeks. [Music] Condolence Singapore came to a standstill last week with the passing of our Founding Prime Minister Mr. Lee…

This week has been a short work week in Singapore due to the Lunar New Year holidays on Thursday and Friday. In accordance to the Chinese tradition, I shut myself off completely from work and blogging. Until today. And like all other MPTD posts, I’m…

Sony SmartWatch 3 SWR50

February 16, 2015 2

The LG G Watch R seems so desirable as a gadgetry smartwatch, it seems like a no-brainer to get that or the Moto 360. So where does the rest of the smartwatches stand? After reviewing the SmartWatch 3, I feel that Sony stands a great…
