Kyto Activity and Sleep Monitor review

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 11:52:26 -0500

My Kyto Activity and Sleep Monitor arrived promptly, but the box suffered some damage. Luckily the unit seemed to have no damage at all. I immediately placed it on the charger before any testing and immediately noticed the custom connector. More on that later. Once I had it charged up it was time to try it on, get it synched and give it some testing. Let's walk through the hardware, application and overall opinion. I am typing most of this as I discover it. Hardware The hardware is rated as waterproofing grade IPX6. This generally means it can be worn in the shower and sustain some heavy jets of water or rain. Swimming or diving are definitely not possible. You can only submerge it in water for three minutes continuously. The official IPX6 standard can be found here for a longer explanation. ...

YI Action Camera review

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 11:01:35 -0500

I excitedly opened the Official U.S. version of the YI Action Camera in this cool lime green face and teal body colors. (Apparently there is also an all white and all black version out there too). The packaging was a simple cardboard and contained the camera, instruction booklet (only in Chinese), the battery and a micro USB cable for charging. I put it on the charger, watched a giant red ring light up and waited patiently. While charging the camera I headed to get a micro SD card (they recommend a 16-128GB class 10 or UHS-1) and figure out what the other port was for under one of the back tabs. I discovered the other port was a micro HDMI. NO cable is included for this connection however. The other tab on the back of the YI Action Camera was placement for the battery itself that I had already figured out. Pay special attention to the needed direction of the pins on the battery to match to the camera slot. Since the battery is a rectangle it is possible to put it in backwards, upside down or both. ...
