Whilst lazy parents like these things as they keep their babies quiet, they are highly detrimental to neuronal development ! Read the science …

4.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of budget furniture, 5 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as my bedside table was overflowing. Very pleased. Quality fine, on a par with a certain large Swedish chain ;) Just what I needed: lamp on the top; drawer for all those odd things; a shelf for my books, and another for gadgets like Kindle, etc. Recommended. Only lost a star as I reckon it could be £5-£10 cheaper.

Very impressive for the price. Light, but strong enough. Decent case (you have to buy your own CR2 battery, no big deal) non- slip and easy to use. Checked against known distances, spot on ! Nice.

After signing up online for extreme tracking and mounting it on the dashboard of my new car it works perfectly as an asset tracker. Battery life is formidable and the iPhone app is nice. Thoroughly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware !, 14 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You get what to pay for. Arrived unpackaged in ziplock bags.
Of the cards I ordered they were slow to format and of the batch these two claimed they were full at 2GB (Win8.1, Centos 6.6, Raspian from Noobs_12), NOT 8GB despite their reported formatted size being correct :(
No blame to the seller, had loads off them in the past.

4.0 out of 5 stars For a just released product, really rather good., 17 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with all Health Wearables you MUST decide what it is that you really want.

I actually use multiple devices for different jobs. Serious sport a Garmin 910XT (soon to be 920) Triathlon, a Fitbit One for ultra discreet everyday tracking and a great app/website and data export and analysis. And so on.

So where does the Basis Peak Fit in here - well I've only had it a day, so will add to this review ...

But am very pleased so far, it is a compact, well made, non-ostentascious device (I even like the white as a bloke) that does what it needs to do. (I'm sure future firmware updates will add more features, some of which I will want, and some I won't). However, whilst the display is pleasantly simple, the web app and the (in my case) iPhone app are coming along very nicely. Useful data, as per the product description, is clear and quite comprehensive at this stage; the presentation is nice and the habits and analysis is really the unique selling point.
Having had 2 hear attacks I love the total automation (sleep, activity, etc.) and most of all the continuous heart rate tracking and display - a feature close to my heart (hey, pun intended !). I'm sure that other features like data export that are in development will be coming soon, but as a Chartered Software Engineer myself I'd rather it was delivered well done and working than early and rubbish. (Yes, there are the usual trolls in the Support Forums who think new feature can go from concept to coded, delivered and tested in 3-5 days; not a clue people !!).
I look forward to see how this device and the back end develops, but it's only cos it's early days that I'm docking a star. If they had to be taken over, I'm happy that it was intel that bought them. (Fan of X1000 SoC and Edison and it show they are 'in this sort of business now').
Very few things are perfect enough to get the full 5. Since I am also using this on one arm with an LG G Watch R on the other at the mo, they are very complementary - even if it does mark me out as a geek - which is fine cos geeks get big salaries these days;
' blessed be the geeks' :D

Excellent - does exactly what it's supposed to, specification accurate.

No problems with the performance of the cable, either electrically or mechanically.
Good value for money and quick delivery.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware this product is a Fake., 3 Aug. 2014
Be aware that this project is a fake.
This is a shame when dealing with open hardware, and daft.
Read the pages about fakes on the arduino(dot)cc website.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works fine and uber cheap - nice ! Perfect for tinkering with ..., 2 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK, so this is a module that costs just over £1, but cheap is OK. Almost disposable.
Build quality is basic, but perfectly functional. Optics are average and collimation is, well mediocre.
However, if you want something to do experiments with, works fine.
Applied 5V from my bench power supply with current limiting on, as it was, it only seems to draw 40mA anyway.
Light is actually fairly bright, no idea of actual rating (beyond what can be estimated from the maths).
Not perfect, but worth 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good indeed for a new IoT Device, 7 Jun. 2014
After a slight delay in shipping the iKettle arrived, well packaged and looking very nice. OK, so it's a new gadget and, therefore, I approached it with the caution of any early adopter. However, the WiFi connected first time and has worked absolutely flawlessly, at the end of the first week the manufacturers released an update to the App too (the App itself is functional, no bells and whistles, but it works and never seems to fail).
We go caught with the 'lid issue' where it doesn't stay closed. However, a quick, free phone call to manufacturers support line and a very pleasant conversation led to a revised lid mechanism being shipped to us again free within 24 hours. Fitting it was trivial and took less than 10 seconds, and now all is back to as it should be. Cannot fault iKettle for customer service.
Will be getting one of the coloured covers partly for aesthetic purposes and also, as with all steel kettles, it will help to contain the heat and make it more pleasant to handle (not that it gets too hot in normal use anyway).
We live in a hard water area and would recommend any purchaser take steps to keep it from furring up, again no real issue.
Very happy indeed with it, only knocking 1 star off because there's bound to be a even better version coming ...
