Pebble Time Steel Watch

The Pebble Time Steel Watch is the second Kickstarter project that I backed from Pebble, the first time was two years back for the Pebble Watch.

The Pebble Time Kickstarter project broke Kickstarter record for the most funded project. It raised US$20,338,986 from 78,471 backers and the project was officially funded on 28th March 2015.

Amazon Fire TV Stick

Bought the Amazon Fire TV Stick for US$39 (S$54) just to try it out since I already decided on buying the Amazon Echo (next post) and my kitchen’s television needs a media casting device.

Why not another Chromecast? This is because I wanted to try a new gadget and I think Chromecast is due for a refresh soon as it has been almost 2 years since it was launched.

WeMo Switch + Motion

The WeMo Switch + Motion is retailing at Funan’s Challenger for S$109 (member’s price is S$89) while the WeMo Switch is retailing for S$79 (member’s price is S$71.10).

For a member’s price difference of S$18, I can get the additional motion sensor, and hence I chose the WeMo Switch + Motion instead of just the WeMo Switch.

iMacwear M7 – Android Watch

GearBest sent me an iMacwear M7 for me to try. The iMacwear M7 is retailing for US$112.63 (S$155) on GearBest’s website excluding shipping.

The iMacwear M7 is not an Android Wear device but rather an Android Watch itself because it runs on a full Android 4.4 (KitKat).

OnePlus 2 Available In Singapore In Q4 2015 For S$538

The much anticipated OnePlus 2 which was announced last Tuesday, 28th July 2015, will be coming to Singapore in Q4 2015 and the local retail price is S$538 for the 64GB variant.

I played with the OnePlus 2 last Friday, 31st July 2015, at the OnePlus 2 media event in Singapore. I love the build of the OnePlus 2, it feels solid and have a premium touch to it. The phone comes with the Sandstone Black back cover which I totally love. If you don’t like it, you can swap it with four other back covers: Bamboo, Rosewood, Black Apricot, Kevlar, which are sold separately.
