Note: While you can find the Fitbit on Amazon it’s always a good idea to check eBay to see if you can find a better deal. If the Fitbit Charge HR is more than you want to pay then I recommend you check out some of the cheaper copies available at my new Gift Store.
it was my birthday on the weekend and I got the best gift ever. I dropped a couple of hints leading up to my birthday and so I was really hoping the hints would take fruit. When I opened my birthday and saw my Fitbit Tracker I was absolutely thrilled. There are quite a few Fitbit Trackers available and I was lucky enough to get the Fitbit Charge HR which I’m reviewing for this post. You can see a collection of all the Fitbits available on this page.
Fitbit Charge HR Review
You can see me wearing my Fitbit Charge HR in the image on the left. Normally you don’t see the digital display unless you give the Fitbit a tap or when you bring your wrist up and twist it. I found that to be pretty cool.
Fitbit Charge HR Features
The Fitbit can track so many activities. I reckon the Fitbit Charge HR’s best feature is that it can track so many aspects of my daily activities. This includes steps, distance, floors climbed, calories burned, total amount of minutes I’ve been active as well as telling the time! If I was to go for a run it would also display run time, pace and distance travelled.
I actually went for a walk/jog/run and my Fitbit app not only recorded distance, time and pace it also used the GPS feature of my iPhone to map out my complete exercise route.
My Fitbit Charge HR also monitors my sleep including stats such as hours slept, times awakened and my sleep quality. It’s even got a silent vibrating alarm so that I don’t have to worry about waking up the missus.
As far as I’m concerned though I reckon the Fitbit Charge HR’s most important feature is that it continually monitors my heart rate. It doesn’t matter if I’m asleep, just sitting in front of the TV or working out, the Fitbit tracker gives me continuous updates of my heart rate.
The Fitbit is the perfect gift for almost anybody who wants to get fit. It helps you to get motivated and to stay motivated. With the Fitbit app you can also compete with friends who also have the Fitbit tracker. I know I love mine and as you can see from other Fitbit Charge HR owners, they love theirs as well
Sometimes it’s not the expense of the gift is not as important as the thought behind the gift. Sure we would all love to gift someone a brand new Apple Watch but for a lot of us the expense is way too great. But lets say that the person we’re wanting to buy a gift for already has an Apple Watch! If that’s the case, with a little thought the best gift could be one of the many Apple Watch Accessories that are available.
Cool Apple Watch Accessories
A great Apple Watch accessory is the Spigen® Apple Watch Charging Dock! I reckon this means that the Apple Watch chews up a lot more juice than your normal watch. But then again, the Apple Watch is not a normal watch is it?
The Spigen® Apple Watch stand has several interesting features including;
A convenient stand which holds the Apple Watch for a comfortable viewing angle
Charger and cable openings compatible with both versions of Apple Watch charger
Stable aluminum stand with TPU dock avoids scratching the watch
Compatible with Apple Watch (2015)
Because the Apple watch is so new there’s only 3 reviews for the Spigen® Apple Watch stand, and all three of the reviews are positive 5 star reviews.
Here is one of the Apple Watch reviews.
Fortunate to get a chance to check one of these out early, this is definitely the stand to beat. Unlike some of the other ugly Apple watch stands out there, the Spigen charge dock is everything you would expect to complement an already expensive investment: it has a clean industrial design which complements the watch, it is very stable, its materials look and feels sophisticated, and it serves to charge your nice watch and in a way that it is nicely presented and usable while it is being charged. My only minor thought; it would have been great if the stand was even a tiny bit heavier at the base to cut down on chances of accidentally knocking it over.
Another great accessory is the Spigen® Apple Watch Case! Heck, they have a great looking expensive watch, I’m sure they’re going to want to protect it right. They say this watch case fits like a glove.
These gifts would be great for birthdays as well as Fathers Day and Mothers Day.
I reckon we all know that most women love fashion. Those who love fashion also love designer labels. If you disagree with this surmise feel free to let me know in the comments. So, we’ve established that most women love designer labels. This post is all about one such designer brand, Prada. Actually, Prada Bags to be exact.Being a bloke and all I don’t know much about Prada. Heck the first time I heard about Prada was when my wife forced me to watch The Devil Wears Prada some years ago.That very wife and daughter swear by Prada saying how exquisite Prada bags are. Not that they have any personal experience mind you. Until recently that is.You see, my daughter has just recently returned from Europe and while in Europe she visited Florence. Yep, you guessed it, while in Florence she went to the Prada store and got herself her very own Prada bag. The very one that I am featuring in this post.
Prada Saffiano Leather Bag Review
When we picked Nadia up from the airport she was proudly carrying her Prada bag, with this huge smile on her face. I didn’t get to examine it until we got home. I have to admit the workmanship was stunningly perfect. I compared against some of the knockoff bags that they own and the quality between the Prada and the knockoff was like chalk and cheese.
The bag is made from Saffiano leather. What is Saffiano leather I asked her. Apparently the saleswoman explained that the leather is stamped in such a way that it renders the bag virtually scratch resistant. This also means the bag is very easy to clean.
It’s the distinctive markings of diagonal lines and cross-hatch designs stamped into the leather that makes the Saffiano leather stand out from the rest. Considering that Saffiano leather was invented by Mario Prada himself one would expect Prada to be experts in the process.
Once the saleswoman explained to Nadia how good the leather was, how the process renders the leather very resistant to stains, scratches and being very easy to clean she just had to have it. Yeah, right? As if she wouldn’t have bought it anyway.
So, is Prada a great gift for a woman? Are you kidding? Prada is the perfect gift for the woman in your life. You give her a Prada and she’ll be yours forever.
