Omron Body Composition Monitor (HBF-222T)

Omron Body Composition Monitor (HBF-222T) retails for S$169 in Singapore. During flash sales on Christmas, it dropped to S$150. After deducting the additional platform and shop voucher of S$10 each, I paid just S$130.

I bought this to replace my 10-year-old Fitbit Aria, which spoiled last month.

Flipper Zero

Flipper Zero is a portable multi-tool for “hackers” who likes to play around with radio protocols and access control systems. It started as a Kickstarter project on 30th July 2020. It was then successfully funded on 29th August 2020 after raising a total of US$4,882,784 from 37,987 backers, which blew past their initial goal of only US$60,000.

I was their early bird, so I paid US$119 (S$166) without shipping as Flipper could not determine the shipping cost then. When they managed to get their logistics sorted out in September 2021, I paid US$13.37 (S$19) for shipping to Singapore.

Omron Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor (JPN500)

Signs you are getting older is when you need to get a blood pressure monitor after your annual health checkup. I went for my annual health checkup on 8th July 2022, and the doctor mentioned that my blood pressure was slightly above the normal range.

Based on, I fall under the High-Normal BP range and doctor ask me to watch my salt intake.

Xiaomi Mi Portable Electric Air Compressor 1S

A screw punctured my tire last week, and because I did not drive the car for a few days, the tire pressure dropped to 90 kPa.

Since the car tire pressure sensor only kicks in after a while, we realized this after driving out onto the main road. Luckily, our tires are run-flat, so it is relatively safe to drive to the nearest petrol station and fill it back up to 220 kPa.
