LUMINTOP TD16 LED Tactical Flashlight With Strobe and the latest CREE XP-L Hi LED Review

 

LUMINTOP TD16 LED Tactical Flashlight With Strobe and super bright 920 lumens CREE XP-L Hi LED

You guys know I love my flashlights, we live rural and we are forever having power-cuts, so torches are essential for us. But Im on a mission to find the brightest, toughest and most long lasting one. 

Anchor I think Im addicted.

Especially a smaller flashlight as those are the hardest to find that are still rugged but really powerful. 

So when Lumintop kindly approached and asked if I would like to see their tactical flashlight with their LATEST CREE XP-L Hi LED, I just couldn’t wait to see it.

SoIve added a full video review… for those of you that prefer to watch rather than read my rambles. See after the jump…

Here

is my full unboxing and 1st impressions, plus using it outside so you can makeup your own mind whether this is for you.

Packaging

This deserves a mention so Im sorry to those of you that get fedup with me banging on about packaging…however…Lumintop are not only fast with their delivery, but it arrives so well packaged as you will see on the video unboxing. You get to see it as I do.

It arrived in a sturdy box with tape and Lumintop printed on it, then inside…your confronted with a really gorgeous eco-friendly, elegant cardboard box…as you can see above. 

Its minimalist with its bunny logo and name and extremely robust so you can store it in here if you wish and its certainly ideal as a gift.

 Opening the box you see the Lumintop in all its glory with its own case cushioned in a black foamy bed.

 No seriously one more look its really worth it; sleek elegant and super sexy.

In the

box you get your Lumintop tactical Flashlight.
Nylon braided case.
Wrist strap.
2 spare water seals and spare on/off button.

Description

This tactical flashlight is made of high strength aerospace aluminum which has an anti scratching HAIII military grade hard anodized finish…phew that’s a mouthful but sums up this little guy, perfectly.

It measures a neat 6.1 x 1.9 inches and only weighs 1.4 pounds without the battery

It can use 2 types of battery either 1 x 18650 or 2 x CR123A , NEITHER which are included; but if your a flashlight connoisseur you will have quite a few rechargeable 18650’s lying around.

Here are just a few of our 18650 batteries, that in itself is worth an article as you have to choose a certain type.  Ill explain briefly for now.

We have a quite alot of these on charge all the time just incase for all our other tactical flashlights, so we know a little about the good and the bad.

Here is a fab explanation from Lumintop about their amazing design, I do love in particular that both ends have stainless steel bezels for impact, this petal-type design is well known for breaking windscreens or windows in an emergency (from a corner). Or use as protection if needed.

You can see it more closely above, the internal reflector gives 99% light transference because of its

double sided AR coating.
Perfect to reflect the already powerful CREE XP-L HI LED bulb.

Because of the powerful bulb its possible after being on high for a longer time the top end could get warm, but Lumintop have added heat dissipation fins, like a heat sink on a PC to draw away any heat quickly, I haven’t found it gets that hot to be honest but then I haven’t had it on high for longer than a few minutes at a time. I just cant help seeing how far this incredible beam goes against our other torches and size for size it’s definitely the best so far…AMAZING!

At the opposite end the stainless steel bezel has a small hole to tie on the wrist strap; I love the bright orange, it makes a change from black.

 Around the middle is a secured but removable metal clip to attach it to a shirt pocket or to a rucksack etc.

I have to say I’m really impressed with the nylon braided case that comes with it,  its pretty tight to slip it inside but wow its secure. The Velcro flap is super strong its not going anywhere. The back of the case has a belt loop and a plastic loop to attach a carabina clip for tents rucksacks etc.
You’ve no excuses to lose this flashlight unless you lose it turned off in the dark, lol!

I have to quickly mention the Velcro flap as its sewn perfectly…not a stitch out of place and of  

course the bunny logo in leather will always make me smile.

The whole balance of this flashlight is brilliant, it will stand up solidly on either end.

The Modes 

You can see these better in my video review above.

This tactical TD16 has 6 modes, all totally needed for separate jobs.

The actual flashlight has low, medium and high, but then if you hold down the mode button it then offers another 3 modes, these are flashy modes.

It starts with a strobe (not ideal for everyone), then a normal flash approx every second, then a slow flash…almost a blip or blink, this would save battery if you were waiting to be rescued.

Its also impact resistant to 1.5 meters…made me smile as I want to try it at 1.6 meters…no seriously its been tested to get its military grade. Plus this little guy is water resistant to 2 meters IPX-8.

Fantastic ergonomic design as its so comfy to use on a regular basis, it warms to your hand quite quickly and so it doesn’t make your hands cold like some other metal/alloy torches.

Opinion

 

 

Im so pleased with this gorgeous flashlight, its super lightweight even with the battery inside due to the anodized aluminum. It has a 3/4 way rubber ring section which actually can be removed and fitted at the base allowing the torch to be stood pointing upwards genius Lumintop, with the ring fitted back in place it prevents it from rolling on a shiny surface giving it a slight grip.

The modes are absolutely amazing, the beam itself has a gorgeous crisp circle, some flashlights are more muted and blurred, this has a well defined circle.

The beam hits the tree tops over 400 feet away from our garden, I would expect that from one of my much larger torches not from something so small.

Even the medium and low level have a place. 

We often walk our dog at night and the lowest brightness is perfect to show the ground as we walk. I haven’t needed the flashes yet…phew; but I have no doubt about how good they are.

Plus Ive used it everyday for nearly 7 days and I haven’t had to change the battery yet…wow so impressed.

 

 

Its at a mid range price for a tactical flashlight but if you use one on a daily basis or for more important uses like your in the forces I highly recommend getting this little powerhouse. 

Its ergonomic, powerful and lightweight and an ideal ladies torch or someone short of space in their backpack while hiking. 

We have super duper large powerful torches but this can sit proudly next to those and its now my 1st choice of flashlight on a daily use. 

 

 

Im never without this its always in my handbag.

Beaux Bijou Jewellery 1st Impressions and Video Review

 

Beaux Bijou Jewellery
By Gadget Revolution

Something a bit different to my normal gadgety products. For those of you that love unique and unusual jewellery like me may be interested in this post.

I was kindly sent 3 items of Beaux Bijou jewellery to share with you all from Gadget Revolution and I couldn’t be happier.

 

 

Im not a gold and diamond girl…I know strange huh…I prefer more edgy, unusual, unique items that stand out that make it personal to me.

I collect South western silver and I adore natural orientated jewellery. I dont seem to have a favorite style. I just like what I like and boy do I like these.

So hit the jump button and let me show you these 3 pieces in close-up. Ive added a video 1st impressions as its so much easier to see the jewellery that me ramble on about it.

Anchor
But today I was lucky enough to receive 3 beautiful pieces that are fun but also inexpensive, so

A little about Gadget Revolution first, they are selling a unique brand of jewellery called Beaux Bijou, they offer some really fun pieces as well as stunningly pretty items. However if your a fan of certain TV program’s you may want to go check them out with unique pieces from Walking Dead or Game of Thrones or Pretty Little Liars and many more.Ill go through each piece briefly below but for close-ups please checkout my full video so you get to see them in real life so to speak.
So Im not going to waffle on too much this time as they really need to be seen.

I have added a full video so you can actually see these pieces to make up your own minds.

It could go badly wrong for you
I received all 3 really well packaged in Amazons standard packaging; then each item was separately packaged in its own plastic zip-lock bag, then….inside 2 of them a separate suede pouch for the bracelet and moon/galaxy necklace. But the nicest was the Dr Who Tardis which arrived in its own suede jewellery box, looking very luxurious and expensive.
Packaging

though your other someone may be thinking gold and silver, or wait for it …an engagement ring…eeep! So please make sure you know that person really well first lol!

So let me show you each piece in turn as they are all totally different from each other.

First is this gorgeous bracelet
Tree of Life multilayer leather and wax braided bracelet with infinity symbol and swallow charms

The bracelet arrives in a plastic ziplock baggie, then in  plastic poly bag and with this you get also a beautiful black suede pouch to keep it in or give as a gift.

 On getting it out the bag you do just need to pull it into shape then your ready to wear it.

Its a 5 strand alloy, faux leather and wax rope multi-strand adjustable bracelet…phewey that’s a mouthful, but it is what it is lol!

Its 14cm in length but also adjustable too and Im sure it will fit most wrists.

I love multi-strand bracelets as they look great straight away, I love the look, its rustic and very natural and easy to wear. With this bracelet you get 2 beautiful swallow charms, a tree of life and and an infinity symbol so you can give this to a friend if you want it to mean so mean something too.
I love the 2 braided ones as they look already worn.

I have to say I have really skinny wrists and its fits me perfectly, the extender chain makes it wearable for most people and the lobster claw clasp means its secure whatever your doing in your day. Even with skinny wrists I wear this on its smallest link and it wont fall off, the 2 connector bars hold the leather strands securely there’s no way they are coming loose. Im really impressed with the quality and have been wearing this every time Ive gone out since it arrived; I love it.

You can buy it directly from
 Amazon Uk HERE

Again do checkout my video as you can see it on my wrist and how gorgeous it looks.

Next is the Crescent Moon Pendant with Galactic Glass Stone Necklace

 

 

Now this blew me away with just how beautiful it is; PLUS the Galactic glass or cabochon is identical to my website background I love it already.
I adore astronomical jewellery they always have special meanings too. 

You can choose out of 3 different solar system cabochons, ar’nt they just gorgeous!

I love my pink and blue its Gadget Girl afterall.

Again you get a lovely black suede pouch to keep it in, especially if  your giving it away as a gift.

The  filligree Moon itself is made out of high resistant alloy and has a rounded curve to it so its sits against your chest perfectly. Its 5cm high and the cabochon sits inside it which is 2cm in diameter, you receive a 17.7cm silver colored curb chain, this is because you get a good size safety chain added to the length. This also allows you to clip the lobster claw clasp to make it any length you wish.

You can choose yours from
 Amazon UK HERE
Again do checkout my video as you can see how gorgeous it looks.

Lastly is the Blue toned Dr Who Tardis Necklace with gift Box
Im a huge Dr Who fan and fell in love with my little Tardis, on first holding this you will feel how good quality this is. At 4.4cm high including the little green gemstone it has a good substantial weight; as I think its is solid silver alloy which has been painted with blue enamel to give it the characteristic Tardis police box colour.

It comes with a 25cm chain again because it has a safety chain with lobster-claw clasp to clip it to any length.

A really clever addition is this beautiful green gemstone right where the Tardis should have its blinking light, it really adds a cute femininity to it.

With  this you get a gorgeous velvet touch jewellery box to keep it in; making an all in one pressie for someone.

 This is a great quality gift for any Dr Who fan, you can wear it or have it sitting on your desk like me. It looks super cool and very cute. A subtle piece of geekiness!
You can buy yours on Amazon UK HERE
Again do checkout my video as you can see it on my wrist and how gorgeous it looks.

Im so happy with all 3 Beaux Bijou pieces, each one has a totally different look and feel for different times, they are great quality and all 3 are conversation starters.

Plus go checkout Beaux Bijou’s other products on Gadget Revolution to see many other unique fun pieces of jewellery from Walking Dead, game of Thrones to Sherlock Holmes and Pretty Little Liars plus many more.
 They add a little bit of fun and personality to your look.
But dont take my word for it, take a look and see for yourself
Let your Jewellery make a statement about you.

All my thanks goes to Gadget Revolution for kindly sending me these beautiful Beaux Bijou pieces for this review.
All my views and opinions are my own and my images are mine unless otherwise stated.

essence of arcadia luxury gem set heart

Essence of Arcadia Luxury Gem-set Heart Aromapendant Video Review

 

  Essence of Arcadia luxury Gem-set Heart Aromapendant 

Im so pleased to be able to share with you all this stunning luxury aromatherapy pendant from Essence of ArcadiaIf you have never heard of these they are beautifully shaped lockets that you can fill with your
.favorite essential oil; either for health or relaxation.

You may have seen some previous reviews of when I last collaborated with EoA with their stunning

 

 

Essence of Arcadia Aromatherapy Oils selection and the gorgeous Dragon egg..er..sorry..the Essence Of Arcadia Luxury Diamond Diffuser

EoA are now stocking a beautiful range of aroma-pendants and I was very lucky to be given a choice of designs that they offer. I chose the heart as it looked so unique and I felt many of you would want to see this for real.

I have added a video unboxing so you get to see this locket in full and how to add the oils etc.

Anchor I have always loved aromatherapy and I originally qualified as an aromaptherapist back in the 1990’s, so the idea of being able to wear my favorite aromatherapy mix of oils to help with a health issue or just for pure relaxation is something I find just genius and simply couldn’t wait to try it for myself.

Arrives in transparent plastic sleeve.

Packaging

It arrives in Essence of Arcadia’s beautiful trade mark black cardboard packaging with gold writing, its elegant and makes a gorgeous gift to receive.

Inside the bag you have a prestigious black and gold jewellery box and black firm envelope

 

 

Im a true believer that if a company supplies well executed packaging
that the object that is carried within, will be of excellent quality.
Checkout the wording, it is quite thought provoking!

“Aromatherapy Made beautiful!”

 In the box you get this stunning locket Ill go through it in a minute and in the black envelope you have 10 felt hearts to match the inside of the locket; these are to add your aromatherapy oils too. They will hold the scent for hours.

Description

 Okay you so need to see this AMAZING design, this locket is made of hypo-allergenic surgical grade stainless steel, for durability with…and wait for it… an 18 or 24 inch chain!

You have 37 cubic bright zirconias which surround the whole outside of the heart, in the middle is a Celtic style type of flower which is just beautiful.

 

You really need to just checkout my video to see it for real…its stunning!

The locket measures – approximately 3cm width x 3cm high not including the clasp.

The back of the locket is a beautiful brushed steel effect and could be so easily engraved for someone special.

I love the thickness of this locket which is approximately 7mm in depth and you can also see the  indent to open up the locket itself.

It opens easily using your nail, but its held closed securely by 4 magnets and believe me these are really strong  its not going to open by accident…you will see this in my video.

You can see how flush the magnets are in the locket its so well made. The little felt insert is also fitted flush this is what you are going to add your drops of aromatherapy oil onto. I also have to point out the few drops of oil that you will need wont ever leak out onto your clothes, if its going to leak you’ve added way too much and will probably be overpowering everyone around you and choking yourself at the sametime.
Only a few drops guys……!!!

The black and gold envelope that comes with this locket has another 9 of these heart shape felts in 3 different colours.

This allows you to swap your aromatherapy scents around if you wish. The colours also change the look of your locket too; please see my video. My

favorite is the black insert this is also good with the aromatherapy oils that stain, that’s when the white felt heart may not be ideal not that I think it will show through the heart.

You also get a

24 inch curb chain with a 2 inch safety chain so no worries if your a bit clumsy with chains you have a double protection.
I received an 18 inch chain with mine but the details do say 24 inch chain. 
The lobster claw clasp is solid and extremely tight, I have totally trust in this connector. It also helps that I can choose the length I want to wear it.

Use

So does it work yes of course it does, you have complete choice in what scents you want to drop onto your felt pads, you could even use your favorite perfume if you wished.

This is perfect for those of you that are allergic to wearing perfumes, you can spray or add a few drops to the felt pad and its not against your skin, but you can still smell it and other people will just assume your wearing it on your neck or wrist, no one will know its from your pendant.

I have done this too as I have eczema and very allergic to some of my perfumes and I can now wear them without anyone suspecting its actually from my pendant…not that it matters if they do I think its a fantastic idea.

My other half came up with another fab idea; if you get bitten by mozzies like we do during the Summer months you can add citronella to your pads and actually have a pretty, elegant and fashionable mosquito repellent.

For me I absolutely adore lavender so I have been wearing a few drops of lavender to help me relax when Im feeling a bit stressed. Again if your doing something stressful you can add a relaxing aromatherapy recipe and wear it for a driving lesson, or an exam etc. A presentation at work or simply if your feeling overwhelmed.

You will know its there so it will help you relax and stay calm.

This makes the most perfect gift for someone who is unwell, sick or under the weather; or simply someone who needs cheering up, the heart in itself makes a wonderful gift as you can also use it as a keepsake locket, so if you dont want to wear aromatherapy oils inside you can add precious small objects that mean alot to you. A picture, Dried flowers, baby’s hair, crystals or you can buy memory charms for small lockets and those will fit inside too. Its a perfect memory keeper.

I cannot express just how luxurious this locket is; its elegant and looks very expensive and when it catches the light its just stunning….it has to be seen…so definitely take a moment and checkout my video.

I now wont be without my little heart it looks incredible and has such such a variety of uses to enjoy the scent emanating from it throughout the day.

So with Christmas creeping up on us, think about shortening your pressie list and get a few of these, I do not know one woman who wouldn’t want to receive one of these.
Big brownie points to you.
Or better still just go treat yourself.

Edifier MP211 Bluetooth & NFC Portable Speaker Review

Ive reviewed a wide variety of products in the last few months and Im excited to be sharing a gorgeous, elegant speaker with you today. 

Its a hot English Summer day and we are making the most of this glorious weather, but those Summer days can be made better with some sounds, whether its for your barbecues, days out in the park at the beach or in the comfort of your own home. 

Anchor So grab a coffee and snack and
So when I was kindly offered this portable Bluetooth speaker from Edifier, I just couldn’t resist those sleek elegant curves.checkout my video unboxing, 1st impressions and full review below.

I cannot resist small portable speakers Im on a mission to find the smallest with the best Bass, as Im a bit of a rock chick and I do love my Bass.

So here is my full unboxing, 1st Impressions and you get hear the actual sound quality to help make up your own mind.
NOTE: I recorded this video on my new Canon Powershot SX720 HD at the highest quality so I feel you are hearing what I was hearing.

It arrived well packed directly from Edifier and inside was a
Packaging well designed box with inner window to see the whole of your speaker; with enough tease details to make you want to get it out the box fast.

Inside the box you get your gorgeous elegant speaker with USB charging cable and an auxiliary cable so you can use it with other devices that are not so modern.
Plus I love that you get a wrist strap too.

My only slight niggle is the fact that both cables and wrist strap are grey/white; I feel for such an elegant speaker it should be black…but  Im being picky here and its not a really worry to me.

Description

This excellent quality Edifier speaker has 2 x 2 watts of power with the speakers either side of the Edifier logo. It has Bluetooth 4.0 but is also backwards compatible with 3.0 and 2.0.

The frequency for those that want to know is 200Hz-20KHz .

Its powered by a 950mAh battery so will hopefully last up to 10 hours they claim.

It also has Near Field technology for those of you that have your music files on your devices.  It gives you a variety of options to play your music however you may have it stored.

Measurements 

This beautifully compact little speaker is only 5.2cm long and 3.3cm wide making it perfect to pop in your bag or glovebox. Just checkout how small it is in your hand, you can see this more clearly in my video review…if you haven’t seen it yet.

 The top of the slim speaker has 6 light grey rubberized buttons and these are a large size too for easy access. Plus if you wish to use your speaker in the dark you can easily feel what the buttons are.

  • Answer  call button.
  • Rewind/previous track.
  • Play or pause.
  • Fast forward or next track.
  • Minus volume.
  • Plus volume.

On the other side you have 4 ports.

  • DC in for charging cable.
  • On/Off switch and/or mode/source switch.
  • Auxiliary cable port 3.5 jack.
  • Micro SD slot. (they even show you a little image).

I have to mention the on/off source switch as it does a few different things, obviously the on and off, but once switched on you get a bing bong…love this.

Then you simply switch it right to scroll through 3 different options and on the other side you will see a mall LED showing you 3 different colours depending in which option your wanting to use.

  • Blue for Bluetooth…obviously..hi 5 Edifier for this.
  • Red LED for which your using your Micro SD Card.
  • Green when you wish to use your Auxiliary cable.

This I think is a really neat way of using this speaker..very simplified.

Underneath you have 2 half moon rubber feet which span the width of the speaker giving fabulous grip,  its not sliding anywhere. I have to say this speaker is really stable despite being so slim.
You also have some of the basic user instructions here too so you don’t have to worry about losing your user guide or leaving it in the box at home. Its always with you.

Connecting your speaker to your devices

You may have your music stored on 1 device like me or across variety of devices, this speaker caters for them all. You have the option of using Bluetooth or NFC we’ve already mentioned. But you also have an auxiliary cable for older devices with no Bluetooth.

Charging your speaker

I charged the speaker over night but they suggest only needing 4-6 hours. You get a red LED just under the USB cable to let you know its charging, this turns to green once charged. The cable itself is plenty long enough as you can see here at 83cm long.

 

Pairing

In my video I show you pairing this little Edifier via Bluetooth to my phone for the very 1st time and it finds it in seconds…amazing! I can wander round our cottage and outside with no breaking up but this of course will depend on your own homes as wifi and thick concrete walls can sometimes interfere with Bluetooth connections. Ive had no problems whatsoever.

Receiving calls

One of the fun things apart from playing music is the fact that when your playing music via your phone you never have to miss a call again, no need to turn it off. The speaker has its own cool ringtone and will turn your music off then play its own ringtone.

 Image by Edifier

You then simply press the little telephone button on the top to answer your call hands-free; where you then talk normally into the speakers own microphone…like it was a phone handset.

Then once your caller or you has hung-up, the music continues exactly where it stopped. This is fantastic for those of you that work from home, or in the middle of cooking, feeding baby etc.

NOTE: I show you this in the video!

Opinion

I absolutely love this gorgeous looking speaker, it not only looks good in any setting being made of this lovely piano glossy black (or whatever color you’ve chosen). But you would think a smaller speaker wouldn’t have the quality sound…but guys it really does…please just checkout my video so you can hear the music for yourself.

The recorded sound is coming back through my little Canon Powershot SX720 but this does have  NOTE:great sound so I think its as perfect as you hear it. 

Its just adorable and looks

It not only looks good it has incredible sound for such a small footprint. Plus you have the versatility of connecting devices via Bluetooth, NFC, Micro SD card or Aux input…oh and dont forget you can answer calls on this too via its inbuilt microphone.alot more expensive than it its, the build is such excellent quality it feels extra special and would make a great gift.

This is so versatile and an all-round winner with such fantastic quality sound…but dont just take my word for it go listen to my video and make up your own mind.

I found it paired in lightening speed and now connects instantly that I click Bluetooth. The sound is crisp, clear and well balanced. I had it at FULL volume with no distortion or crackles whatsoever despite only being 2 watts each.

Im super happy with the Bass as I just cannot listen to music that sounds tinny, and this is gorgeous with no crackles or clicks.

Yes, but I bet the battery is only lasting a few hours…I hear you yell..nopethe battery reached just over 10 hours before needing to be charged which says a lot about the quality of the components that make up this mini powerhouse.

It really is a cute, compact, portable speaker with fabulous sound; ideal for handbag, rucksack or even your pocket.

What else can I say; if you’ve any questions please send me a mail?

 

Go checkout these beautiful colours; which one would you choose?

veryfit 20 smart watch heart rate

Veryfit 2.0 Smart Watch heart rate monitor Review

 

 

Veryfit 2.0 Smart Watch heart rate monitor (ID107)

Hi everyone  Ive something for the fitness enthusiasts out there today or for those like me that are just curious of what your doing on a daily basis.

I was kindly offered the Veryfit 2.0 from Gearbest to share with you all and as I haven’t ever tried a smart watch before I couldn’t wait to see what it could do.

So click the jump to see how smart this  smart watch is…..Ive added a full video review too, so you can choose whether to read or listen to my ramblings.

Anchor Ive always been curious to see just how many steps I do in a day, or how may kilometers and calories I burn off.

As a lady with a bone density problem I have trouble doing regular exercise so its hard to see just what I can do in a day.

So let me start by showing you just what this piece of Technology can do.

The box is pretty good even being really informative.

It has a cool magnetic book opening panel revealing the  smart watch in a clear window and the full tech spec on the opening panel.

So in the box you have the watch, a charging cable and user guide.

Have to say first impressions it feels light and I love the colour, I usually go for black so it looks expensive…yes

The user guide is really indepth and easy to follow.Im a tech snob lol! But this FUNky green hits the sweet bit in me

The strap is fairly thick about 3 mm thick but on me the strap doubled round so its easily 6mm.

Tech Spec

  • Bluetooth.
  • Screen Type – OLED.
  • Compatible – Android 4.4 and iOS 7.1 and above.
  • Waterproof.
  • Li-Polymer Battery.
  • Battery Capacity – 70mAh.
  • Stand-by 5-10 days.

 

 

  • Charging 1 hour.
  • Band material TPE.
  • Size – L26cm x W2.10cm x H1.25cm.

 I love the watch connectors, they are metal not plastic like other watches.

 I was worried these nobbles would stick into my wrist BUT they sit flush to my wrist inside the watches own holes…if that makes sense.

I like the metal mirrored panel behind these as it looks so nice from the outside.

The mode button is in the same matching plastic.

You can tap this quickly, I thought as it looks like a touchscreen it should be a touchscreen.
You also have another mode button for quick access. You can faintly see it in some lights…see above.However you have to tap it firmly to scroll through the modes.
I have found the button on the side does same thing; so Im not entirely sure what you gain by having 2 ways of accessing the watch…I maybe missing something simple so if you have this let me know.

 So this is how good it looks on and I really love the colour and the embossed design on the strap.

Charging

This watch is charged via USB with a neat little cable, the connection feels a bit cheap but it does the job well. It charges for approx an hour and its ready to go for approx 5-6 days for me. It states 7 days but its been 5-6 for me but hey I still think thats brilliant.

 

Time which is cleverly shown by tilting your wrist to read the time, so saving on power.

Then tap just beneath to scroll through to the other modes or use the side button to view them for longer.

Heart rate

Heart Rate (its really a pulse being on your wrist),  Ive taken a few in my time as a nurse I know… takes a few seconds to start counting and from experience this is quite accurate for me.

This
The underside of the watch reads your heartbeat or pulse, you can see here the green light flashes to show its reading your heart rate. doesnt dig into your wrist like other watches but it still accurate enough.
 Ive found the heart rate monitor (pulse) useful if and when Ive not felt too well and found my pulse quite high. The fact it checks it 24 hours a day is brilliant.
To be accurate make sure the strap is tightened enough but still comfy. 

Steps

 

 

Ive had pedometers before but I absolutely love this as the results are saved onto a gorgeous graph on the app.

Calories

 

 

Checkout the burning flame icon super cool…burning calories…get it..?

Distance walked/run

Love this mode that you get to choose miles or kilometers walked in a day or in 1 workout.

Simply hold down the side button and it will take you into a distance reading starting from nought of your going for a run, it will then buzz once you’ve hit the distance.

I know dont laugh at my 0.02km The picture was taken the next day and I had only just started….ok….sheesh!

Alarm clock

It also has an alarm clock set up from your app; the alarm clock will then vibrate on your wrist without waking anyone else but you, perfect for anyone that is hard of hearing too. Plus you dont wake your other half if your up early.

Camera

 

 

Checkout the cute camera mode icon, it even animates…yes I did say camera mode…but no it doesn’t have a camera on the watch but it does turn your watch into a remote control for your phone camera…cool..oeew SPIES like us.

You only need to swish your hand over the mode button ontop like a magician for it to snap the pik from your phone.

But you do need to wake it up now and again while your setting up your shot, Ive seen some people complain it doesn’t work, it does, it simply hibernates after about 3 seconds of not being used. 

Which I must admit is slightly annoying I want it to stay on, if I want a remote button I want it ready when I need it. I dont see any need to have it turn off. So you just need to tilt your wrist towards you to wake it up.

Sedentary

 

 

Okay this is not a warning that you need a ^poop^ break and its not James Bonds remote ejector seat activator, it is though the sedentary symbol to say hey lazy bones get up off your a** and do something, this can be found on alot of the expensive smart watches. You set on the app how often you want the watch to let you know if you’ve been sitting for too long. I have mine set for every hour, then its up to me if I ignore it…like most times…erhm… or actually get up and smell the flowers, I mean exercise. 

Then you have the all important steps, now here comes the thing…there’s always a thing. I do feel this is fairly accurate; however it does seem to reach my target while Im driving in my car…hey I dont know it is super weird and its not all the time. But a few times its shown the finish line flag…super cool…while Im in the car.???

 

 

Im not sure if this is something to do with wifi or Bluetooth maybe but everything else shows its accurate. Let me know if you guys have any ideas?

 

Pairing

You do have to pair the watch and the phone together and normally Ive never had any problems; but I did find this awkward to scan and find each other. I then had to reinstall the app and go through the pairing process via the app ONLY then it worked immediately, so dont try and jump the gun guys.

 

The Veryfit 2.0 App 

The Veryfit 2.0 app is for Android 4.4 and above and IOS 7.1 and above.

I have to say Im so damn impressed with the app its beautifully presented and designed.

Very easy to follow and so beautiful to use.

Here are just some of the screens to work through, but I need to show you on a video clip just how gorgeous as it changes screen by falling away like water or turning into a 3D block so you can swish it round with your finger…its really quite mesmerizing.

You have a complete setup guide where it sets everything for you for the first time, you simply add your weight, height etc. 

 

The app has 4 main tabs as you can see above.

Detailed easy sliders allow you to choose all your step and sleep targets.

 

Super easy basic set up options with some cool options too.

 The graphs are so easy to read and fun to view with their amazing animations.

It tells you how much you have to go and it will also let you know how much of that was fat burning…super clever.

Sleep Monitoring system

Sleep Monitoring

What I also love is the fact it tracks my sleep, whether Ive had light or deep sleep and exactly how many hours, this has been invaluable to knowing why I have had an extra bad day, Ill look at the app and see Ive had barely any deep sleep its all been light; so for me its helpful to see why Im having a crappy day.

However its obvious really if your feeling tired you know you’ve had a bad nights sleep this just confirms it.

You can show off your results across all these sites straight from the app.

I had to add a full video review too as I wanted to show this beautiful app in action as well as the watch.

Summary

I absolutely love this smart watch; Ive had a few teething problems with pairing at the beginning but I now know you have to pair through the app not just through your own Bluetooth settings. It would have been nice for the instructions to say this.

Plus being in the car seems to upset my Bluetooth sometimes, maybe due to Bluetooth in the car too..Im not sure. However it rights itself once home.

The VeryFit 2.0 app is just gorgeous so easy to use and I’m a sucker for cool animations. Love the graphs and I can see at a glance how well Ive done with my steps and my sleep.

Talking of sleep the sleep monitoring has been a huge help and Ill be continuing to track this.

The large screen is really gorgeous too along with the cool flick of the wrist to view the time and options, enabling power saving; this thing lasts for ages I’m so impressed.

The first week it went to 6 days before buzzing at me to say “charge me, charge me”. It then only takes approx an hour to charge. The screen is large and bright, but is a bit hard to see in sunlight but thats a minor thing.

I love the app and I look forward to seeing what Ive managed to do in a day; its made me care about what Im doing and I look forward to the time I can increase my step counts lol. 

I also want to say its completely waterproof Ive not taken mine off in nearly a fortnight and water hasn’t effected it at all. My strap is starting to get a bit discolored however but then I did choose a bright colour as I wanted something brighter being Summer, but I’m still happy with this clever smart watch

 

 

Its so affordable compared to the big boys in the smart watch world and it offers so much. If your curious of how many steps you do in a day, how many calories you’ve burned, and how far youve walked or run; or wondered how much “proper deep sleep” you have, then this is for you. Plus you get a silent vibrating alarm clock too, I love it for this its been so useful. Even if you purchase this for the remote camera function you will get the use out of this.

If your a serious fitness buff you may want something more indepth, but this clever watch will really encourage you to get those step, calories and fat burning goals. Perfect for the fitness beginner or if your not sure whether you will get on with a fitness tracker you can buy this without breaking the bank.

So you can purchase yours from Gearbest with a choice of 5 fun colours.

For only
