5.0 out of 5 stars Grippy feet gloves, 23 May 2015
Length:: 1:05 Mins

Kindly sent to me for review these yoga socks (which are more like gloves with the individual toe sections) are brilliant.

The work exactly as you'd expect, pop them on, get into your flows and your feet stay firmly planted. I have wooden floors and when practicing yoga my feet can get chilly when bare, or they slip when in normal socks. These solve both problems and it's now easier than ever to do a bit of down dog without having to adjust my positioning due to slipping feet.

They can also be used on a yoga mat, just keep in mind the mat may still move under your feet.

Due to the materials used you need to hand was these, instructions are provided on the packaging.

Two pairs are included and I recommend to anyone who practices yoga.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight tracker, 22 May 2015
Length:: 4:18 Mins

Kindly sent to me for review, the iFit activity tracker is a lightweight activity tracker that comes with accessories to allow you to wear it both on your wrist (like a watch) or clipped to your trousers. You could pop it loosely into a pocket, but this isn't advised as it can reduce accuracy.

The wrist strap is a bit fiddly, once you've loaded the iFit Activity Tracker into the strap you pop it round your wrist and then use two prongs to clip the strap closed and a small plastic square covers the prongs to stop them coming loose (tricky to explain, easier to see the video demonstrating this). Once on it's comfortable, if a little bulky, but at least it's very light. It's the strap itself that's a bit fiddly and a simple classic watch strap would've been a better choice.

Given the plastic strap and high price (at the time of review it's about £20 more expensive than the Misfit Shine or Withings Ox) it's surprising to find this isn't waterproof and the plastic strap makes this look rather cheap in comparison to it's competitors.

The charging method is also a little fiddly, making use of a charger that is reminiscent of a little electric chair, you have to hold the tracker in place while pulling a strap over it's 'head' to keep it there during charging. Fortunately this isn't something you'll need to do everyday as the tracker has an excellent battery life that easily lasts 7 days.

Setting up the unit was very easy and involves downloading an app for your phone, pairing the unit and setting up your account. Note I've used this with an Android phone.

The app is crisp and clean and allows you to add personal information such as weight, height, birthday, gender. It also allows you to set move time alerts, a really useful feature if you sit at a desk a lot as the unit vibrates to let you know you've been inactive for too long.

This vibration can also be used as an alarm to wake you up, set a time and the tracker with buzz you awake when it thinks you're in a light sleep.

The app not only logs your step data, but can also log your calorie intake. This can be done either via the fitness tracker by adding a number of calories in increments of 50, or via the app by selecting the type of food you've had.

The app method allows you to search a food database or alternatively use the inbuilt barcode scanner to pull up nutritional information about your food. You can then select portion size and time of day you've had a meal and overall tracking your intake is a nice addition and helps show if you are balancing your calories in and calories out, providing you don't mind spending the time entering all your meals into your mobile.

Day to day you won't really need to do that much with the tracker, it happily counts steps as you go about your business and has the advantage over a phone based tracker that you're unlikely to leave it on a desk.

The app has a number of menus to see how you're doing without referring to the app, unfortunately in bright light the screen is difficult to read.

As well as reviewing information on the tracker and on your mobile you can also take a look via an online dashboard. It's a decent little website that gives you access to all your data, unfortunately at the time of review there isn't a way of sharing data with other apps or services, for example you can't import weight data or export steps data to you Withings account.

Overall the iFit Activity Tracker is a decent bit of kit that, while a bit fiddly at times, offers a good range of features. When you consider the Misfit Shine is waterproof and the Withings Ox has a built in pulse monitor, it seems iFit are being rather optimistic with the price for something that doesn't offer anything majorly different from the similar competition.

Also consider:
Misfit Shine Personal Physical Activity Monitor
Withings Pulse Ox Activity, Sleep, Heart Rate and SPO2 Tracker for iOS and Android

5.0 out of 5 stars SimpliBrilliant, 20 May 2015
Length:: 1:51 Mins

Kindly sent to me for review there are 3 sheets included for the price. There was also a digital cooking book included to help inspire use of your new bakeware.

Each of the sheets is a different size, you get a small, medium and large sheet.

They have a rubbery feel too them and at first it feels a little counterintuitive putting them in the oven, but fear not! These laugh in the face of high oven temperatures.

I've used for both baking and cooking and they've been great in all tasks. Pop your food on, place in the oven, then when you take them out food comes off far easier than had I used just a baking tray.

You'll see in the video that I clean these under the tap, this was only to show how easily they clean up and if you like you can pop them in a dishwasher instead of manually cleaning them.

Having some older, low cost, trays I've often found some food sticking to the trays, chips in particular. This hasn't been a problem since using these sheets and you can see in my video how easy it was to remove gingerbread.

It's great you get three sizes allowing them to be used in a range of situations, fantastic little kitchen gadget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and speedy 2 in 1 card, 16 May 2015
Length:: 1:57 Mins

This is a review for the 3xUSB port and wifi card which was kindly provided to me for review.

The card really quick and easy to fit, just pop it in a spare PCI-E slot (comes with screws in case you need any) and install the driver (which can be found on the included CD).

Once installed you'll need to connect to your Wifi network. This is dual band, supporting both 2.4 and 5GHz bands. As you'll see in my video I get a decent download and upload speed, no complaints there.

The nice thing about this card is that as well as WiFi it also adds 3 USB 3 ports. They'll work with older USB devices but really come into their own when using with, for example, a USB 3 external hard drive. As you can see in the video I had to do a copying demo several times as the first couple of times the files copied over too quickly for me to show the details. The third time you'll see it runs at about 100MB/second in terms of transfer rate, nice and speedy!

Great little 2 in 1 card.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great case fans., 13 May 2015

Purchased for a case upgrade I've been very pleased with the fans. Easy to fit, come with all the fittings you might need and are very quiet, much better than the cases inbuilt fans which may well be getting replaced with another set of these bad boys!

Addictive little game, control zombies and take over the world! Great graphics and a 'just one more go' feel too it, sort of like a reverse tower defence game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice quality little keyboard, 13 May 2015
Length:: 2:22 Mins

This keyboard was kindly sent to me for review and I do like the overall design, very switch with the backlit keyboard and metal finish for a premium feel.

Note that this is a US layout keyboard rather than UK layout.

Pairing is really easy, just press Fn + C and then search for the keyboard on your device.

It's a nice addition if you've a tablet such as the iPad as it means you have the entire screen to look at like a monitor, rather than half the screen being taken up by an on screen keyboard. To keep this compact there isn't a number pad, but the numbers do run along the top along with various function keys such as play/pause.

This is charged via USB and a cable is included, it's the standard type you've probably already got with your mobile.

There are a number of colours to choose from and the lighting is subtle but does the job in low light situations. You can have the backlit off, on a low level, or on a higher brightness level.

Others have mentioned issues with waking the keyboard up after it's not been used for a bit. I've not had that problem, I've just found it takes a few seconds to wake up as you can see in the video.

When you consider an Apple bluetooth keyboard can cost upwards of £50 this is a fantastic alternative, it's just a pity its not the UK layout of keys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money, 10 May 2015
Length:: 3:01 Mins

The Sony E4 represents a huge advancement over the Xperia E1, the screen is nice and big, it's faster and it looks more like a premium handset.

The 5" screen looks really good and is a great size for photos, videos and gaming.

Games run brilliantly, you'll see in the review video both a racing game and a 3rd person shooter whizzing along without any problems. The screen size means you won't be covering the action with your thumbs if using on screen controls.

The camera is also very good, and I especially like the 'AR Effect' mode that allows you to overlay things like dragons and dinosaurs onto whatever you're looking at, and whats really cool is you can take a photo or video of the action!

What makes this stand out compared to other value handsets is the power management features. Sony have made it possible to extend the battery life by shutting down unused features on your phone when the screen is off. Really simple way of extending the battery life, and is useful since the battery isn't user removable.

If you want a nice simple to use mobile Sony have you covered, there is a 'Simple mode' which changes the interface to be a simple grid layout, reminds me of the early days of Sony/Nokia handsets. Its quick and easy to switch between this and normal mode.

For the low price you get a fantastic phone.


Yeelight App Controlled Bluetooth Multi-Coloured Smart LED Strip (2m)

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple to use LED lights, 9 May 2015
Length:: 2:53 Mins

The Yeelight LED light strip was kindly sent to me for review and it comes on a spool which, when unwound, gives you an LED strip with good length power cable. The back of the LED strip and the power block both have sticky pads giving you a low of options as to where you use this, allowing you to mount this under or on surfaces.

Rather than being controlled via WiFi your phone connects via Bluetooth. Setup was very simple, plug the LED strip in, download the app and use the apps inbuilt search feature.

Once the strip has been detected and added to the app you have full control over the LED lights, selecting the colour and brightness quickly and easily.

Alternatively the app offers a number of automatic modes, for example the LEDs can cycle through different colours (you can select the colours and the cycle speed), or they can change colour based on your phone listening to music.

The app is easy to use, although at one point a non-English message was displayed. A couple of connection issues between the phone and strip have been experienced but these were quickly resolved by closing and reopening the app.

Controlling over Bluetooth means there is no need for a WiFi hub, making this a very simple product to setup.

The Yeelight LED light strip offers a good range of features for the low price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little case, 7 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 1:20 Mins

Great little camera case. As you can see in the video review it fits my camcorder perfectly and can also be used to carry around DSLR lenses instead.

The belt loop works well and it feels like a well made product that will last.
