Omron RS8 Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor with NFC Pa&hellip by Omron
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been using a more basic model for about a year Omron RS6 Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor with consistent results. I have not however done a test against a surgery model so I have taken the readings as-is.

This new RS8 model adds three salient features over the old model

1. It can store two people's readings independently.
2. It has wireless near-field upload of the data to the Bi-Link website.
3. It has morning / evening settings so you can see if a reading is an evening one or not.

The first of these features is very useful. Two people on the same device is sensible as long as you… Read more
LEGO Legends of Chima 70006: Cragger's Command Shi&hellip by LEGO
My son got this for his 8th birthday and over the course of two days we had to persuade him to do other things than build and play with Lego Chima he was so taken with it!

This is a big box with 600+ pieces each bagged with a number. Bag 1 is used first and then when it is empty Bag 2 starts.

This kit has loads of mini figures and at least 3 detachable parts so it is not just a boat. It… Read more
LEGO Chima 70132: Scorm's Scorpion Stinger by LEGO
Scorm is one of the "Bad guys" in Chima and this Scorpion Stinger appears in episode 1 of series 2 of the "Legends of Chima" TV series. It is a mid priced model but comes in a decent sized box and the model is quite large.

The build process is superb with lots of "technical" Lego pieces used to make a truly rigid structure. This car can be picked up and moved around without breaking in half. Yes, bits will fall off during play but the core remains strong so rebuilding is made so much easier. It has a ball shooter on the scorpion's tail and the claws snap shut via a trigger and rubber band assembly controlled by Scorm so it has lots of action play potential.

It also… Read more
