Tested for you : The Samsung Gear Fit.

We, as the Borderlinx team, know you are interested in high tech products and we spend a lot of time researching and keeping ourselves informed with all the innovations of new technology.

After the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and the 2 new SmartWatches last Friday, I got the opportunity to test the Samsung Gear Fit during a race last weekend. So here is my unbiased opinion about it.

COMFORT and AESTHETICS: 

As a woman with small wrists, I was pretty concerned that the watch would look and feel out of proportion (too bulky) like some previous models did. So I was pretty surprised that it felt very comfortable, and, even though it would not suit an office or evening outfit, it did not look to masculine either.  I hardly felt it on my wrist as it is light and comfortable.

I love the fact that I can very easily change the bracelet’s color and theme and the fact that it only actually turns on when you need it. Though I must admit that this functionality doesn’t always work and I did find myself swinging my arm around to get the screen to turn on.

PERFORMANCE

The heart-rate monitor is, as far as I’m concerned, the biggest improvement on previous models and other Smart Watches. You can easily control your effort and make sure you keep your energy to end the race well. There is no need for any additional bands or gadgets to know your heart-rate, which is a vast improvement.  It will even tell you when to slow down and speed up during your race or training based on your heart rate. You can set it so it will tell you what to do for your next training.

I enjoyed the fact that the watch is water and dust resistant. This means you don’t have to worry about it while you’re running… come rain or shine… you can concentrate on your race, your training or your walking.

I also tested the sleep monitor, which I was initially skeptical about. I don’t like the idea of having a connected machine so close to me while I sleep. I decided to test it out when I realized I could monitor my sleep with the Bluetooth turned off and I didn’t need to be close to my phone. It works like most sleep monitors do and tells you how long you’ve actually slept, whether you’ve woken up during the night etc. Now I can know for fact whether I’ve had my full 8hrs of sleep!

The watch, like it’s competitor’s, also keeps time, and track of your distance, your speed, the number of steps done in the day. It all seemed very accurate.

And of course, it remains a Smart Watch, connected to a Smart Phone so you can see your texts and see who is calling you on the watch. The benefit here is that you’ll never miss an important call again. You can choose to answer or ignore but the Watch doesn’t replace the phone for these functionalities. You’ll still need to pick up your phone for the rest.

CONCLUSION 

I’d definitely use the Galaxy Gear fit as a fitness device but the masculine design would prevent me from using it as a watch.  Though I already own and use a fitness tracker, the Galaxy Gear Fit is a much more complete fitness coach and I’d happily switch.   How about you? Are you tempted? Remember that Borderlinx will ship it for you.

How to choose the right smart watch for you

2014 is the year of the SmartWatch. There is no doubt about that. Every brand has one on offer and is flaunting it’s benefits at you. It’s hard to know the good from the bad and, more importantly, which one amongst the good ones is best suited to you… especially when you’re thinking of buying one online and shipping it across seas.

We’ve searched high and low and have come up with a short and comprehensive guide to help you chose the perfect SmartWatch for you. Here is what you need to consider, in order of importance :

  • Compatibility with your smartphone

This may come to many as given but it’s important to state it. These new devices are here to complement your smartphone, not replace it. Most models offer functionalities such call and message notifications that are directly linked to your phone. This will need to complement your current smartphone.  Unless, of course, you choose an special offer with the combo, you’ll need to make sure that your SmartWatch is indeed compatible to your phone. Though this is important, it’s made easy by the fact more and more smart watches now support Android and Apple.

  • Design

Though these devices are practical, one can not forget their show-off value.  A watch remains a piece of jewelry and you’ll want to be sure that it will be admired. Design is therefore one of the most important aspects of choosing a smart-watch. Are you more the classic type and would prefer the authentic look of the Moto 360 or the more affordable Cookoo? Or do you prefer the high tech feel of the Samsung Gear 2 or the Sony Live View?  Or even something in the middle such as the Martian G2G?

  • Usage

Not all smart watches offer the same functionalities so you need to figure out what you’ll want to do with yours. . Some will track your exercise performance (including heart rate monitor and podometer) like the soon-to-be-released Samsung Gear Fit, some will take photos, some will allow you to read text messages and see who your caller is, and other will only give you notifications.

  • Ease of use

The use of the device needs to remain simple and fit in with what you are willing to do. Some will allow you to personalize your settings and program movements to accept or decline calls like the Razer Nabu, others come with intuitive display screens like the just announced Pebble.

Battery life is included in the ease of use bucket. It is recommended to chose a model that will last more than two or three days of normal usage. Of course, none of the current models will answer this criteria if you are a heavy GPS user.

 

So as you see, choosing your SmartWatch is as much an individual choice as choosing a regular watch. There are many models and price ranges to chose from so take your time, research your choices well and whichever you choose, Borderlinx will ship it you your home.

MWC 2014’s best announcements

Mobile World Congress 2014 was held in Barcelona the week. The biggest party for smartphone and wearable tech products. The MWC, in the same way as CES in Las Vegas, is where all the innovations of the mobile world are announced. We sived through the clutter for you and chosen a selection we believe you’ll ba particularly keen to shop and ship to your home.

-First, let’s talk about the biggest star of the MWC 2014 – Samsung Galaxy S5 that you can start to buy from 11 April 2014. It is slightly larger than the S4 with a 5.1 inch screen, and resistant to an active (dust and water). Offers a new glamorous look with ‘leather’ like polycarbonate back but the biggest new features are the  ‘fingerprint scanner’ and heart rate monitor.  That can be used, thanks to a partnership with Paypal, as an identification process for online payments.  If this doesn’t satisfy your curiosity, you’ll find more details here: http://www.engadget.com/2014/02/24/samsung-galaxy-s5-preview/

But Samsung’s Galaxy S5 did not get all the attention, despite all the hype. Samsung also introduced a range of smartwatches:  the Gear 2, the Neo and the Fit. The most important thing worth knowing is that for the first time they are using their own operating system TIZEN instead of Android. The main difference between the Gear 2 and the Neo,  is that the latter has replaced the camera with a heart rate monitor to go with the new and improved activity tracker and the hypoallergenic wristband comes in a range of colours. . Gear Fit, on the other hand is specialized for fitness only and offers very convenient apps for the more health conscious among us.http://www.engadget.com/2014/02/24/meet-samsungs-new-smartwatch-family-gear-2-neo-fit/

-Secondly, we focused on the Sony Xperia Z2. As the Xperia Z was only released 5 months ago, Sony were not expected to announce this at the MWC but another star was born with the Xperia Z2:  5.2 inches IPS LCD display, Live Colour LED technology. For an even better screen resolution for images that are ever closer to reality. Sony has also started to learn from their competitors, making their products easier to use. The Sony Xperia Z2 efinitely worth considering for your next smartphone: http://www.techradar.com/reviews/phones/mobile-phones/sony-xperia-z2-1226987/review

Sony also announced their new activity band. A very sleek and simple design, maybe even too simple, it’ll track your activity, your whereabouts and your time on various sites. It’s more than a fitness tracker.See details here: http://reviews.cnet.com/watches-and-wrist-devices/sony-smartband-swr10/4505-3512_7-35835141.html

-The third start product comes from Nokia. This time they presented their Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL: Nokia X uses Android but with a Windows flavored version of the OS, with a 4 inches IPS capacity display, 3MP camera, dual SIM cards, expandable storage via a MicroSD card slot and a ‘fast lane user experience’ according to Nokia. All the Android-based Nokia X range comes without Google’s Cloud services – instead, it focuses on Nokia and Microsoft’s services like Skype. For now, the X range will be sold in Asia, South America and Eastern Europe only. There are no current plans to bring it to Western Europe, North America, Australia, Korea or Japan.  About the cost: Nokia X €89, X+ €99 and XL €109.http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/nokia-x-android-handset-revealed-1227629

Along with these 3 smartphones, Nokia also announced their new activity band, though it looks like most other brands,  it can track all your activitiesthe people you with, almost everything. Many people thought it is a little bit creepy, but why not saying it’s still a daring trial. More details here: http://reviews.cnet.com/watches-and-wrist-devices/sony-smartband-swr10/4505-3512_7-35835141.html

-But wearable devices doesn’t just mean bands and bracelets, there also was a range of tech glasses on show. We chose the Weon Glassesfor you as they offer some really handy features whilst staying affordable. These glasses will inform you of any notifications you receive on your phone and are equipped with a GPS tracker so you can use your phone to find them again.  Find out more here: http://reviews.cnet.com/cell-phones/weon-glasses/4505-6454_7-35835322.html

-Last but not least, HUAWEI’s hybrid of  a fitness tracker and a smart watch, called Talkband B1. With a 1.4-inch OLED screen, it can track your daily personal activities with a simple band. The biggest surprise  is the smart design of the core of the tracker which you can pop-out of the bracelet and turn into a Bluetooth headset that allows you to make calls, offering seven hours of talk time. It will be first released in China for 99 euros. http://consumer.huawei.com/en/tablets/features/smartbandb1-en.htm http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2014-02/23/huawei-trackband-b1-preview

We will keep updating you on these and other smartphones or wearable devices. So lay back, stay home and we’ll let you know all newest gadget so you can shop them easily with your Borderlinx addresses.

Which Hot Brands do Others Buy?

A lot of brands are less expensive in the US and UK than in other countries. Why?

A trick of the trade to save your shipping costs…

We’d like to introduce you a to little ‘trick’ which could help you save money when shipping –The Borderlinx Consolidation Service. This is an almost fool proof way to reduce your shipping fees when shopping abroad.

- Understanding shipping fees and the dreaded ‘first half kilo’!

Whatever the logistics provider you chose, the ‘first half kilo’ is the most expensive part of your shipping cost. The reason for this is that the first kilo needs to cover all the fixed costs associated with shipping a parcel internationally (courier pick-up, customs clearance, courier delivery and more…). If you consolidate your shipments, you will only have to pay for this 1st kilo once. If you ship, say 5 parcels, separately, each one will be treated as one shipment which mean that you pay the 1sthalf kilo five times.

Just look at the numbers:

In this first example, the customer shipped 5 packages separately to his home. Here is a break down of the cost :

  • Package 1 = $18.25 1kg
  • Package 2 = $18.25 1kg
  • Package 3 = $18.25 1kg
  • Package 4 = $18.25 1kg
  • Package 5 = $18.25 1kg

Total Cost $91.25  5kgs

As you see, he’d payed for the first half kilo and all of the handling fees 5 times.

If he had consolidated his shipments, or in other words put multiple packages on the same airway bill and to the same address. The 1st half kilo costs would have been satisfied with the first package, hence eliminating the minimum charge for the 4 others.

The shipment would have cost him:

  • Package 1 = $18.25 1kg
  • Package 2 = $4.35 1kg
  • Package 3 = $4.35 1kg
  • Package 4 = $4.35 1kg
  • Package 5 = $4.35 1kg

Total Cost $35.65  5kgs

Or a saving of $55.60

So what are you waiting for? Consolidate because remember, the less you spend on shipping, the more you can shop!

Consolidating is very, very easy.

This is very easy.

Just release all the shipments you want to consolidate at the same time.

This doesn’t mean we repack all of your parcels into one box!

At Borderlinx.com, we prefer, whenever possible (with the exception of parcels that require repacking) for you to get the most local shopping experience. To truly shop as if you lived in the USA or UK. This means we don’t repack everything into one large box, but we consider all the parcels you released at one as one shipment. This is only visible on the savings you make at checkout though, so don’t be surprised when you receive most of the original packaging.

But, please note that we won’t put your products into one box in case something you don’t want to mix with your other goods, so we choose to keep your each box as original, and send them all together to you.

Is consolidating all my shopping into one shipment always the right solution to save money?

In most cases, consolidating will save you money but there is another factor of international shipping you want to take into account before releasing your shipment. This is the dominium, or the maximum value under which you can ship to your home without paying customs (taxes will still apply though). This amount is very variable from one country to another. You’ll be able to see before you release your shipment exactly how much duties you need to pay. You can select all or a sub-group of the shipments in your suite and look under Payment. You can therefore choose the cheapest selection to ship:

Shipment with no Duty to pay:

Shipment with Duty to pay:

Now you know it all. There are true savings to be made by consolidating but you still need to make sure they are real for you. Thankfully our new shipment release interface allows you to easily navigate through the different steps, allowing you to adjust your shipment and get the best possible price for you.

What’s hot at CES 2014

Every year begins with the world’s largest convention on consumer technologies. 2014 is no exceptions and the International CES ,held in Las Vegas, is the place where many high technology manufacturers are choosing to tell us what they have in store for us for 2014. Naturally, and as we know many of you are new technology enthiusiasts,  we are keeping a close eye on the announcements. Here are those we felt were worth your attention.

1. Steam machine and his strong cooperators

Steam Machine is Valve’s new gaming console. It can run the hundreds of games that are currently in the Steam catalog but can also be freely modified and upgraded by users. During their CES press conference,, Valve declared that 14 partners will soon sell Steam Machines in 2014, including: Alienware, Alternate, CyberPower PC, Digital Storm, Falcon Northwest, Gigabyte, etc. They did not give a specific date but one thing is  sure, this release will turn a new page in the gaming world.

(http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/gabe-newell-outlines-future-steam-machines/ )

2. 105-inch 4K Ultra-HD LED TV or 77-INCH FLEXIBLE Ultra-HD OLED

LG has impressed all with FLEXIBLE ULTRA HD which they are calling the next-generation television flexible. It is the first OLED TV we see that can morph between curved and flat screen modes, and that makes it something special.

(http://www.digitaltrends.com/ces-videos/lg-77-inch-flexible-ultra-hd-oled-tv/)

LG also boasts the first 105 inch 4K Ultra-HD LED TV in the world here, though Samsung also presents their 105-inch 4K TV, and says theirs much curvier than LG’s.

(http://www.digitaltrends.com/ces-videos/lgs-awesome-105-inch-curved-4k-hdtv-shape-things-come/)

No release date or price has been announced yet, so we will need to keep an eye on this year.

3. Sony and LG’s fitness tracker

Sony introduced their fitness tracker called Core that will sync with an Android app called Lifelog.. Sony says the Core doesn’t just keep track of your physical motions but your emotions as well. It will be available sometime during the spring of 2014.

(http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/sony-gets-fitness-tracking-trend-lifelog-app-core-fitness-tracker/)

LG also revealed its fitness tracker, it’s not only a life tracker with touchable OLED screen and LED light, it is also equipped with a pair of ear buds to measure your heart rate, plus, you can monitor your oxygen consumption!

(http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/lg-launches-fitness-wearables-lifeband-touch-heart-rate-earphones/)

4. Samsung focus on a professional range of tablets
