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

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.  :wishful:

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

I’ve done a fair few posts on different watches and what a great gift idea they are. There was the post on a  ladies watch which I’m sure most women would love to get as a gift. Then there The Boomox Gold Retro watch, which is a real trend setting watch as well as a head turner.

There’s also the Fish Finder digital watch, great for the fisherman and for those who are said to “have everything”. Truth be told, watches are so much more than a fashion statement these days. As you can see, what with the ever growing technology, its no surprise watches are starting to become a lot more than a simple time piece. So much more that I predict watches are going to become a lot more in demand in the very near future.

Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch

Which brings me to this weeks best gift idea, the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch. This is no ordinary watch. Nope, this is smarter than your average watch. Which is why they call it the SmartWatch.  :crazy: Some of its unique features include a full-colour Super AMOLED display, a built-in camera as well as S Voice functionality.

One very important point is that you would only buy this watch for the Galaxy Smartphone owner as it pairs up with it seamlessly. It vibrates when getting notifications, looks great on the wrist, takes photos and allows you to take calls while driving.

Actually, the best way to learn a lot more about this smartwatch is to read the reviews from some of the very satisfied Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch. Read the rest of this entry


My last post about the best gift for the trendsetter was aimed at the male of the species. It featured the Flud Men’s BBX005 Boombox Gold Retro LED Digital Watch, something that I believe would be a real head turner. Having said that it is a watch that is specially suited to a particular type of male. The sort that likes to be out there and doesn’t mind being the focus of attention. Most people will admit that watch is a great focal point as well as being a great conversation piece.

After that post I thought of doing a similar one for the fair sex of the species. While I’m sure that there are heaps of trend setting women out there, I decided to feature a different style of watch. Even though it’s not as out there as the Flud Boombox watch it’s still distinctive enough to turn heads. Check out the image below, I’m sure you’ll agree it’s both simple and elegant.
