Fitbit Flex is a wireless activity tracker that tracks steps, distance, and calories burned. It is also able to track your sleep quality (how long/well you sleep, how many times you wake up). It also has a silent wake alarm that gently vibrates to wake you at your desired time.

OtterBox Commuter Wallet For iPhone 5/5s

The OtterBox Commuter Wallet For iPhone 5/5s is retailing for S$55 in Singapore. The case adds quite a bit of bulk to your iPhone because it gives your iPhone added protection against drops, bumps and shock. It also includes a slider compartment at the back that house up to 3 credit cards.

On the official website, it states that it can hold up to three cards and one bill, however when I tested it, it is not able to hold even a single note after placing 3 cards in (1x EZ-Link Card, 2x Credit Cards). I guess Singapore currency notes are bigger and thicker because of the materials it is printed on.

Sanyo Eneloop Rechargeable AAA Battery Pack HR-4UTGB4TM

2 weeks ago, I was helping Li Xiang to look for eneloop rechargeable batteries for her office but to my surprise, I could not find any at all at all major electronics stores in Funan and VivoCity. I was wondering did they leave the Singapore market or their batteries sell so well that all the stores are out of stock (I was hoping the later). Many of my friends and I love eneloop batteries!

But luckily, it was just temporarily out of stock (I hope) and when I went back to Funan’s Challenger last week, there was plenty of stocks!

Bose QuietComfort 15 (QC15) Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

· ·

I always wanted to get the Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones also known as Bose QC15 in short because it is one of the best noise cancelling headphones in the market. It is good specially when you travel a lot! Be it via plane or by bus, the QC15 will be able to cancel out some noises produce from the vehicle’s engines. I also heard from my colleagues that it is a life saver in the plane when you have a crying child on board.

I did not get the Bose QC15 in Singapore because it is way overpriced. The official retail price is S$479.

Bought the Griffin Retractable USB Charge Cable with Lightning Connector from BestBuy‘s 5th Ave store for US$24.99 and after a 8.875% tax, it cost US$27.21 (S$34.62).

I always wanted a good quality retractable lightning cable just for the fun and “less messiness” of it. This Griffin retractable lightning cable measures 10cm in length, 4cm in width, 1cm in thickness and weights 35g! The total length of the lightning cable when it is fully unwind is about 0.7m.

Bought the Bose MIE2i Mobile Headset from Apple’s West 14th Street Store in Manhattan for US$116.96 and after 8.875% tax, it comes out to US$127.34 (S$161.50). The usual price is US$129.95 but Bose in USA is giving a 10% discount during the holiday period. With the 10% discount, it is about S$37 cheaper when you compared it to the official retail price of S$199 in Singapore.

I am pretty impressed with the Bose MIE2i, it sounded better than Klipsch Image S4i II with regards to clarity and bass and from a non-audiophile point of view, the sound quality is on-par with the Klipsch Image X10.

I bought the Victorinox Swiss Army Slim 2.0 USB Flash Drive (32GB) when I visited the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets because I got nothing else to buy from there because I am not that into branded stuff.

It costs US$19.99 and after a 8.25% tax, it cost US$22 (S$28) which is pretty cheap, considering Amazon is selling for US$38.99.
