Posted by admin under Cool Gifts, Gadgets

Tracking your fitness activity is extremely important if you want to see results but it can be a tedious task if you are not willing to do it every day. Fortunately there are hundreds of gadgets and apps out there that are helping you keep track of your progress but not all of them are extraordinary.

The FuelBand has been created to make your job as a fitness lover so much easier. What does it do? It tracks your fitness activity and differentiates the things you do. For example, the FuelBand makes it easier for you because it can tell the difference between you taking a walk or doing a push up. Other tracking devices are just pedometers but this one really “knows” what you are doing. You can take it to the gym and it will keep track of each exercise you are doing.

The FuelBand is so awesome it will recognize up to 100 different activities because it uses the same technology as Xbox uses, a technology that recognizes your gestures. Also, behind your band, the package also includes a shoe clip so it will track both upper body and lower body movements.  FuelBand also has a skin temperature sensor along with a heart rate monitor and a tool for measuring the oxygen content of your blood.

Buying Replica Watch – Bad Idea

Posted by admin under Luxury, On A Budget

There is a big fad concerning replica watches nowadays with people not just wanting to buy one or two but actually collecting them. Some argue that this might hurt the original watch business while others consider that the people who are buying replicas would have never bought an original to begin with. Whatever the truth is, replica watches can be a bad decision for some and here is why:

Most websites that offer replica watches are scams, sometimes they don’t send any package to the buyer while other times they just send really bad replicas. They make you want to buy a certain watch by telling you it’s a premium replica, but the truth is, there are very few replica manufacturers that actually make good watches. So replica watches might not harm anybody who is creating original watches but those who want to make a profit might take advantage of customers who don’t have the money to buy an original but are prepared to pay a hefty sum for a replica.

fakes

Custom officials have declared that replica watches are one of the number one items that are bought as fake watches manage to satisfy customers who cannot buy the real thing. They offer a certain status symbol and even when they are bad fakes, the people still have a hard time distinguishing some from the originals. What’s interesting however is the fact that the original watch makers don’t own copyright on their design, only on their brand name, which makes some of the copies out there completely legal as long as no element that has been subjected to copyright is actually used in the making of the watch.

Deciding whether to buy a replica or not is totally up to the buyer but unfortunately the percentage of buyers who get scammed when buying these watches is on the rise, making replica watches overall a bad idea. Those who spend an ungodly amount of time researching and making sure that they know their source might end up with watches that are more of a “homage watch”. These watches are very hard to find and on the internet they are only part of small communities that are not available to the general public. This is one of the ways they can get their hands on a quality replica watch, but for most out there, bad watches are the norm and that usually puts off most people in search of a good watch.

How were these beautiful earrings possible? The earrings have been sculpted to look like a crystal and they simply light up when the back of the earring is put on. That is because on the back of the earring you can find mini-batteries that will also help you hold the earring in place.

These will certainly impress your girlfriend and even if she is mad at you for not buying her something that has high value, they will definitely put a smile on her face. However, they should probably be part of a bigger gift if you are going to offer her something that will announce a special occasion. For example, if it’s her birthday or your relationship anniversary these may not be sufficient but if you just thought of her and wanted to get her something nice that makes her smile, these can be pretty cool.

They are the perfect gift to get for a girl who is more on the geeky side or a girl with a good sense of humor. You should probably avoid them if your girlfriend specifically asked for diamond earrings.
