Meta Quest 2 All-in-One VR
Guys love their gadgets.
When Virtual Reality headset for home use finally hits the shops, it was really an exciting time and we can experience 3D interaction and visual virtually ourselves in the comfort of our own home. My verdict, Meta Quest 2 VR set was indeed a good buy. I am satisfied with how precise the response is, every time a button is selected or an action is made, the the controller vibrates at the exact time letting you know that it is done. The set comes with one free download of Beat Saber VR rhythm game. You can also play games online, for example: moonrider.xyz, watch VR Youtube, Netflix, movies and so on. They are a few free games you can install but for more, you have to make purchases.
After about 20 minutes of game that involves hands and legs movement, the VR headset would begin to slip down due to the sweat on your head. The visual is very clear if you wear it at the right position, once it changes position, the screen becomes blur and the interaction and response are less accurate. You will have to either wipe away the sweat or buy a protector/ sweat band to be worn on the head wrapped around your face.
Apple is a brand love by all. I personally am an Apple fan, particularly iPhone for one simple reason; Speed. If you have been using Android phones, you would experience a slowdown after some time. I was using Samsung before this, it was perfect in the beginning, however over time, more apps and data have exhausted the system memory and resources. Eventually the device slows down, the scroll is not as smooth, button selection takes longer to respond, etc. I did not have this issue with iPhone. Secondly, Android is more prone to cyber/ malware attacks because it’s an open source code operating system and there are more devices using it. iOS on the other hand is a close system and less vulnerable, though not entirely safe.

Kingsmith Foldable WalkingPad R2
This is a walking pad, a treadmill, a gym equipment that you can own at home. Weighing 36 kg, though not exactly light, there are two wheels for you to transport it easily. We have a Kingsmith WalkingPad R2 at home, I bought it for my husband’s birthday and it is amazing (everyone in the house can use it!).
With a maximum load of 110 kg, this walking pad is incredibly solid and quiet. Sometimes we fold and keep it under our sofa, or just let it stand by the wall. Now we are too lazy to store it every time, so this baby is sitting right in front of the TV, where we can run and watch the tele at the same time. You can control the speed or change mode using the remote controller provided. The display at bottom shows the distance and time of running. I am really amazed by its quality, comfortable grip and cushion – absolutely enjoy the work-out experience.
The machine is heavy and can be a chore to fold and store it after every use.
Speed: 0.5 – 12 km/h
