Fitbit Charge HR Heart Rate and Activity Wristband - Blue, Large

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it - encourages me to get up and move!, 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very happy with this, although yes, it is really quite expensive for what it does. But I still love it! Have discovered that you can sync a Strava account with it so that it imports the details of your cycle rides, although it does seem to recognise cycling as an activity in any case. How does it do that? I have no idea! It also seems to be fairly accurate with flights of stairs, which is useful as I work on a second floor and live in a third floor flat, so have had plenty of time to try this out. The only thing is the distance which is not accurate. It assumes your stride length based on your height but mine is wildly wrong so I need to adjust that on the main account (you can't do that in the app). I like the heart rate function which seems to be not far off - I used a pulse monitor at work at the same time to compare. You can set up alarms (vibrates on your wrist) through the day, which I find useful as I have a sedentary job and this makes me get up and walk about and get a drink. As I work on the second floor with no lift, this is especially helpful to get more steps in! It vibrates to tell you when you reach 10,000 steps in a day, it's surprising how many you can do really. If you wear it at night it monitors your sleep. I had long thought that my sleep was being disturbed and I wasn't getting enough zzzzz, and this confirmed it. So I have been trying to have a better bedtime routine to sort this out. I wore it on a flight (which I hate!) to see what my heart rate was doing - interesting! I thought this might be a bit of a gimick but I really do like this. Haven't yet explored syncing up with friends, but that might come in the future.

These are the right size, exactly the same design as I had before, but they feel too narrow. I wore them for a few days thinking they would gradually stretch but they don't seem to have done. Damn, now it's too late to return them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, seems to be accurate!, 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very happy with this after trying one from a local store which was useless! Added a second temperature gauge so we have one at ground level and one on the balcony of our third floor flat. It's surprising the difference! Would be ideal if you could see both temperatures at the same time, but that's just picky. Bold clear display is easy to read. Note that the time is based on Frankfurt so you should go into settings and change the time by -1 to make it correct.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's not as if you put one on yourwatch is it, 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Work OK but only for a short time. Because they're so small they don't stay put for long, starting to peel at the corners after just a few days. I got through a couple in a fortnight and decided not to bother with a third one. It's not as if you put one on your watch is it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect solution for large house!, 14 Jan. 2016

Dead easy to install, bought as a 'dinner's ready' bell for a two storey house, to avoid all that yelling up the stairs. Works a treat, though most of the 30+ chimes are pretty awful!

4.0 out of 5 stars Switch off a bit quick!, 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these for our hall and bathroom to avoid putting lights on at night. Very effective and work really well. They seem to have a fairly wide sensor for detecting movement and are not too bright. I've placed them down next to the skirting board but haven't stuck them on, as it would then be too fiddly to replace the batteries. The only thing I would say is that they switch off a little too quickly, so for example in the bathroom when you nip out to the loo in the night, you end up having to wave your arm or leg to switch it on again before you've finished! But overall very pleased with these, a cheap but effective answer to a common problem!

Bought these for my daughter who suffers from cold feet, she loves them and says they are toasty warm. That's OK then!

5.0 out of 5 stars Get a good case as well for an indestructible phone, 7 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very impressed with this. It's very good quality, gives a hard tough surface that can be knocked/tapped/bashed/dropped and along with a rubber survivor case has made my iPhone pretty much indestructible. Which is amazingly fortunate because just 3 days after adding them both I managed to drop my phone through a bannister rail and it fell 3 flights onto a concrete floor. It bounced as I ran down the stairs, but I picked it up and the phone caried on where it had left off as if nothing had happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great spotting scope for our harbour view, 7 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for our new apartment which overlooks the beautiful Poole Harbour and Purbeck hills. We're about 7 miles from Corfe Castle and can just about make it out with the naked eye on a good day; this scope allows us to pick out the shape of the castle towers clearly. On boats in the harbour which are approx 2 miles away we can clearly see the name of the vessel and count the people on deck. We're hoping we'll be able to spot dolphins and seals when they make their way into the harbour. We already had a good tripod but invested in a decent fluid head to give good control. Yes, of course for this price you don't get perfect optics, so there is some aberration around the outer edge, but I think it's acceptable at this end of the market. If we had a lot more cash to splash we'd have probably spent a few more £100s and bought a better one, but for just browsing the view and keeping an eye on shipping it's perfect for us!
