Fitbit Charge Review

Fitbit Charge started selling in Singapore on 19th December 2014 and it is currently retailing for S$169. The Fitbit Charge is available in four colors: Black, Slate, Blue and Burgundy.

The Fitbit Charge is not meant to be the successor of the Fitbit Flex. When it comes to physical appearance, Fitbit Flex is smaller and doesn’t have a display whereas Fitbit Charge is two times bigger and offer a OLED display. Both serve different target audiences and that is the reason why Fitbit Flex is still on sale.

Xiaomi LED Light

· · · Gadget

Bought the Xiaomi LED Light for S$6.99 during the Mi Fan Festival 2015. There are two colors available, blue and white. I got both since the price is pretty reasonable.

The Xiaomi LED Light is a good alternative to your phone’s flashlight. Just plug it into a power bank and it can double up as a torchlight. The Xiaomi LED Light is diffused so they are easy on your eyes as well.

YotaPhone 2 Review

Many people come to know YotaPhone 2 as the phone with two screens. It is the world’s third phone with two screens as far as I know. The first is YotaPhone 1 which didn’t make it to Singapore and the second is NEC Medias W N-05e which is also not available in Singapore.

The YotaPhone 2 is retailing in Singapore for S$1,048 and you can buy it online via YotaPhone.com or Expansys. Note that the price S$979 on these two websites are before the 7% GST.
