Well I was given this from to test for approx. 5/6 weeks, What was included the Yoga Book Android version also a Windows Version is available Halo keyboard, Stylus Pen and Note Pad. Have to say having used apple most of my time with tablets I was very apprehensive about using a android version. Why I was worried is beyond, from opening the box to using it took approximately 5, created a google account again a first, I’m moving into the modern era from Hotmail. Well first impressions are always a big thing, and the Yoga Book didn’t disappoint, well made, shiny and modern and funky maybe Apple could incorporate a Halo style keyboard like this. at first it took a while to get used to the keyboard as its not as big as a laptop but my word responsive it is very and for me this is one of the best features how it lights up was  marvel to behold, It also came with a stylus Pen and notebook, well this is ones of the most amazing features I have ever seem on any tablet, I admit this took a lot longer to get used to making notes when it is attached to the Yoga Book personally I felt it was a bit difficult to get the writing to go across to the tablet, I took this into a meeting at work and everyone was like what are you doing writing on the that,so I believe this could be improved ongoing to make it better, as the Stylus pen is also a pen by swapping the nibs on it. Once we get into the tablet and using it my whole family fell in love with it as its easy to use to a point that my wife prefers it to the  iPad we have.

Sigma ID Watch Review

So, I have received this from ReviewClub for a honest and truthful review, this was purchased from Amazon and reimbursed by ReviewClub,

First off packaging wise this is very smart much like a lot of the standard fitness watches on the market today, Price wise this is middle of the road for Fitness tracker, at approx. £135 range.

What’s in the box 

  • a sleek black design Watch almost similar in size to a well-known phone brand.
  • Usb Charger
  • Connectors to attach the watch to a Bike
  • 2 offers 1 for geocaching Premium trial and 1 for Komoot Route Planner

Initial Instructions for set are very confusing overall, it asks you to download the Sigma Link App from your phones AppStore. So this device is supposed to connect quite easily, but I must admit this isn’t the case, the watch is running firmware 1.47 the latest software out is 1.67(April2020)

After deleting the app and reinstalling it. I have got this connected unfortunately this is when the troubles really begin, it constantly gets stuck in the Read from Device page (I wonder if this is Updating the device software ) 3 pages into the confusing instruction manual it also states to down load the Sigma Data center, Little does it tell you the best thing to do is download the data center to to update the software on the device and you need both the App and connected to a laptop, Updating it was easy process via the laptop.

Time taken to connect, and upload is approx. 45 mins, this also links to your Strava account if you use one.

I have used this on some Run’s worked quite well although it has an auto pause system which seemed to kick in when the pace slows.

Overall felt fit was good around my wrist although the other smart watches have better straps. Battery life overall isnt the best used fully charged but within 2.5 days the battery was dead, just as I was away to go for a run. I believe this is one of the major drawbacks for this product and stopping it from being a good rival to the likes of Garmin, Apple watch and Fitbit. The notifications side of this was excellent everything that provided a notification on my phone also came through on the watch therefore this may have also contributed with the battery degrading quicker.

Yet to use this on a Bike Ride due in part to the weather.

Pro’s – Nice fitting watch

         – Trial Offers

         – Notifications

Cons – Confusing Manual

         – Hard to connect to phone (iPhone & Huawei tried)

         – Auto Pause when pace slows

Personally I wouldn’t recommend the product due to the whole connecting to the phone and the poor battery life.
