SKMEI Sports 5ATM Waterproof Digital Men Military Multifunctional Diver Wrist Watch Red
SKMEI Sports 5ATM Waterproof Digital Men Military Multifunctional Diver Wrist Watch Red
Offered by Carrie Hughes UK
Price: £8.45

4.0 out of 5 stars Great watch with large display and simple features - time, 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great watch with large display and simple features - time, day, date, stopwatch and alarm. Only grumble is the strap isn't always comfortable causing a bit or irritation to my wrist. But overall I would recommend and would happily buy again another time.

Surprisingly sturdy but the posts are a little brittle and one was slightly broken. Was still able to assemble though.

kingma® Waterproof Protective Housing Case Cover Diving depth 40m For Xiaomi Yi Action Camera(camera not included)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent case which does the job, 17 Aug. 2015
Good and solid case allowing pin sharp pictures through the robust lens screen. Although I've only tested it down to a couple of meters the seals are good and it kept everything bone-dry. I'd recommend getting some anti-fog inserts as it did get a bit steamed up during physical exercise - before it even got wet. Muffles the microphone quite a bit so be aware if sound is important, but all cases do that. This Kingma case is totally identical to the Makibe case (I have both) so presumably same production line but different branding. So choose the best price! Overall I'm very pleased and would highly recommend. (The case was provided to me free for review purposes but this has not influenced my opinion)

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing when compared to Gopro and Yi, 9 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the DBPOWER SJ4000 as a cheap replacement for a lost Gopro hero 4 and have to say I was extremely disappointed by the image quality. I had assumed that functions might be more basic but that the images would be nearly as good as the Gopro, but not so. Images very pixelly (even at supposed 12mb) and video fairly poor quality.

The casing is identical to that of the SJcam SJ4000 so I assume they are the same camera internally too?

The DBPOWER came with an impressive collection of accessories, but if the pictures aren't up to it, what's the point? I have returned it and replaced it with the really excellent Xiaomi Yi camera, which although has zero accessories, comes at a similar price to the SJ4000 and produces some impressive results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Picture quality as good as Gopro and easier to use, 9 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Yi is my 3rd "action camera" in as many weeks! Having lost a brand new (£264!) Go-pro hero 4 in the sea on holiday a couple of weeks ago, I decided to replace it with a cheaper camera. My first attempt was with a DBpower SJ4000 (which appears to be identical to the SJcam SJ4000.) That camera was quite a disappointment after the Go-pro and although it has a rear screen the quality of the final images was comparatively poor.

So onto the Yi. I can honestly say that the build quality feels to be as good, or possibly better than a go-pro. There is no screen, but honestly I found that to be fairly unhelpful on the go-pro anyway. And all the settings can be altered via the truly excellent smartphone App. The look and feel is very simple and straight forward and clearly inspired by Apple.

The picture quality of the images - video in particular - is excellent. Same too for the audio. Certainly both as good as the Gopro and significantly better than the SJ4000.

Slight downsides - there is an annoying audio crackle during playback when you've recorded in wifi mode, but I assume this may be cured with a software update soon? And is avoided by using the camera without the app. Also a shame that no waterproof case or accessories (apart from usb lead) are included, but a good 3rd party case is only another £12 or so at time of writing and various other accessories another few pounds.

Overall I love the simplicity of the camera and the app and the excellent picture quality. Would highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value and it works!, 31 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great case for the money and it *does* float with an iPhone in it! I bought 4 of these for the family on a week holiday to Greece, and they all lasted well being used every day in and out of the sea. The clips which seal it have lasted surprisingly well as they feel like they could easily break, but haven't done yet. The poppers which clip down the cover, although nothing to do with keeping it waterproof, are very poor quality and started having problems after about the second use. Overall though I would recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars overpriced, 5 May 2015
Please note Dunlop do cheap 1 star branded table tennis balls (£1.50 for 6 in sports direct) and better quality 3 star branded (£3.25). These ones on Amazon carefully hide the stars in the picture so I'd suspect they may be the 1 star version. Either way over priced.

Very good charger and stunning customer service from Anker. Sleek design. Only holds a couple of charges for an iphone 6, but this is a handy sized and easy to carry charger.
