AQFIT M2 Smart Fitness Band Full Review

AQFIT is a fitness brand that has various products which can help you keep track of your fitness. One of the products that we got our hands on was the AQFIT M2 smart fitness band. It can be used instead of using a normal wristwatch. This AQFIT M2 smart fitness band will show you time, date, day along with other things like step count, distance, calories burnt and much more. These fitness bands take various parameters while quantifying your activities and fitness throughout the day. So let us check out all the features of this band and take it for a review to check if it is worth buying or not.

AQFIT M2 Smart Fitness Band Full Review

Let us start with the design aspect and then move on to the performance and features of the AQFIT M2 smart fitness band. I have used this band for 2 weeks now and I am sharing my opinion about the same.

Design

The AQFIT M2 smart fitness band has a slim body with OLED display on the front. The touch is only supported at the bottom of the display, and you can tap it to navigate it through various options. On the back is the sensor to monitor various heart and blood-related parameters. The band has rubber straps which can be removed to expose the charging USB connection. You can directly plug this band to the USB wall charger or power bank without any need of charging cable. You also get an extra red colored strap which looks pretty cool as well. The band is IP67 waterproof so don’t hesitate to use it while doing heavy sports activity or in the rain as well. The current display is good, but they could have improved it a bit to match it with Honor band 3 but then they have a different product – B2 band that does the job well.

Performance

Here is the list of features provided by AQFIT M2 band:

  • Time – The M2 band provides time, date, day & battery level on the first screen. You can always change the look of the whole thing using the options menu in the band.
  • Steps count – The M2 band provides quite an accurate reading of steps you walked the whole day.
  • Distance covered – On the third screen you can check out how much distance did you cover throughout the day. It is a good parameter to check if you are concerned about health.
  • Calories Burned – Next is the measure of calories burned throughout the day doing various activities. Please note that you change the band mode according to the activity performed. This will help keep proper track of the calories burned.
  • Pulse rate and Blood Oxygen – As the band has a heart rate sensor, it will show you the pulse count per minute. Now the most interesting thing is, M2 band can show you the blood oxygen level in percentage. Anything above 95% is good for a normal person.
  • Blood Pressure – Again a feature which is not seen in many bands out in the market. M2 band shows you the current blood pressure – both systolic and diastolic.
  • Sleep – You can wear the band whole night to know your sleep pattern. It will show you how much time you were in deep sleep and light sleep. This helps you to check if you are enjoying a sound sleep or not. For this, you will need to connect the band with App to check sleep pattern. Also, the app needs to know your daily sleep schedule.
  • Alarm – One can set an alarm in the band with the help of the app. The band vibrates at the time set by user.
  • App notifications – One can get notifications from Whatsapp, Facebook or Call alerts too when connected with the smartphone. It shows some details about the notifications on the band screen itself.
  • Camera mode – When in camera mode in the app, you can just shake the wrist to take a picture.
  • Stopwatch – The band has a built-in feature for stopwatch if you want to measure any specific sports activity in terms of time.
  • Sport type – The band has sport type modes as running, cycling, & workout.
  • Battery life – 7 days depending on your usage. Takes about 1-1.5 hrs for a full charge.

One of the smart features about this band is, you can lift the wrist to activate the screen and check the time. Apart from this, you can also search for the phone by triggering a ring from the band or find the band by making it vibrate from the app. This is a very useful feature in case you are not able to find the smartphone or the band. But make sure the two are connected by Bluetooth. I guess this band has most features covered. I would say the band shows a quite accurate pulse rate and oxygen but about the blood pressure, it might not be 100% accurate. For pulse rate, I did check with other devices that doctors used and they were very close. Make sure you wear the band a bit tight to get the best results. The M2 band is priced at 2,499 INR but you can get it for 2,000 INR with offers going on Flipkart or Amazon. The band is well priced though I feel a bit of price drop will help it compete with other brands.

Data recovery 2019

Recover deleted data from lost partition

Data is one of the most precious things there is as we keep it stored online, offline, on the cloud or on physical hard drives. Data that is stored offline might get deleted accidentally while cleaning up the storage. Sometimes you will find it in the recycle bin, other times you won’t. So what happens to all the data that is removed from recycle bin too? Is it gone forever, or you can recover it. Let us find out.

The science behind deleted data

All the data let it be audio, video, photo or any other file type that gets stored on laptop/PC is assigned an address to where it is stored. Now when you delete the data from recycle bin, the address is removed but the file is still present. This file only gets permanently deleted when some other data replaces the old one. So that means you can always get the deleted data back.

How to recover deleted data?

Deleted data can be recovered by some good software tools which will help you find the address of the deleted data. This will help the recovery of the accidentally deleted data. One such good software which we recommend is the Stellar Data recovery for Windows – Professional. You will get tools for most of the famous operating system, but as of now, we are focusing on the common one that is the Windows. Using such type of software will help you get the deleted data back. Let us review the software and see how it works.

Is recovering lost partition possible?

One of the coolest feature which I found in the Stellar Data recovery for Windows – Professional version is the recovery of lost or deleted drive partition. Even if you one has accidentally deleted the whole drive, it is possible to recover data from the same if you have the proper tool. Apart from this, recovering data from RAW partition is also possible with this software.

Word of Caution: If you accidentally delete any data from laptop/PC, do not copy any new files or folders especially in the same location from where the data was deleted.

Stellar Data Recovery for Windows – Professional review and working:

Not long ago such software were only known and used by engineers who had enough knowledge of computers due to the complex process. But companies like Stellar have made them pretty simple to use for any layman and recover the data back.

Here is a step by step process on how to recover accidentally deleted data from lost partition:

  1. Download the Stellar Data Recovery for Windows – Professional version.
  2. Install the software on your laptop/PC where you deleted the partition and lost all the data.
  3. Launch the software. First, you will need to select the file type(audio, video, document, etc.) of the data deleted. If you had multiple then select all.
  4. Choosing the location from where the data was deleted. If in your case you know the location, then choose it or else if you lost the whole partition, then select can’t find drive option. Once you press scan, it will search for any partitions which were deleted recently or are still present on the hard disk but deleted by the user.
  5. Once you find the lost partition, for the data, the software by default chooses a quick scan, and if it fails to find any files – it switches to deep scan mode. Deep scan mode will take more time but gives better results.
  6. After the process is completed, a list of all the files found will be displayed in a tree format.
  7. Once you are done selecting the files you wish to recover, you can then press the recover button.
  8. Post that you will be asked to choose a location to recover files, make sure it is not the same location from where the files were deleted.

One of the great things about Stellar Data recovery for Windows – Professional is that they offer 30 days money back guarantee, so it’s totally safe to buy it.

Advantages of recovering data from Image:

Another advanced feature of this software is that you can make an image of the hard drive and then run the scans on that image. If the hard drive has lost data and gone old, then running an intensive scan again and again for data recovery may damage the hard drive even more. So creating an image of the hard drive is a better idea as the image won’t get corrupted even after many scans keeping the data intact.

In this way, one can recover accidentally deleted data from lost partition and get your whole partition back. In my case, mostly deep scan worked out to be a good option. The software is made very easy to use for anyone to understand. There are other recovery software available, but the advance feature of recovering data from lost partition or RAW partition works great in Stellar Data recovery for Windows – Professional version. The pricing for the software is Rs. 5,999 and you can buy it from this link. Do keep in mind that the software has some basic features like normal data recover along with lost partition data recovery and recovery from the image too. These features make the software worth the price as hiring any service may cost you ‘n’ times more depending on the amount of data. Let me know your views on the Stellar Data Recovery for Windows – Professional and the process of recovering files. If you face any doubts or have any feedback, please post them in the comment section below.

Vu 2019 Range

Vu launches 3 TV range with VOD Upscaler Technology

There is a new competition running around in the digital segment, this time its not smartphones but smart TVs. One such company which is one of the largest selling TV brands across e-commerce platforms is Vu. They have launched some good TVs in the past. This time we are speaking of the 3 new range of TVs which Vu has brought in with a new technology which they are calling Vu VOD Upscaler. Let us check out, what exactly is Vu VOD Upscaler and if the new range of TV is something which you can buy.

Vu launches 3 TV range with Vu VOD Upscaler Technology:

Let us first clear the basics about the new technology, what it is, whether it is really required, and how it affects the quality of pictures.

Vu VOD Upscaler – Explained

All the VOD(Video On Demand) content provided by Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar, etc is shot using the latest cameras using high-end VFX technology. There is a difference in the content which we watch on our television and the one which is shot using the high-end camera during production. This might be because of the internet connection speed and quality constraints. So the brand has worked on Vu VOD Upscaler technology which enhances both audio and video of the content using multiple machine learning algorithms which runs parallel to the DSP (Digital Signal Processor). This enhances the picture quality. One can imagine that the original video which consumes large storage memory is compressed and a lot of pixels are eliminated to make it small in size and easy to transmit. Vu VOD Upscaler uses algorithms to recreate those pixels from the compressed pixel which makes the video quality close to what was original. In terms of audio, it identifies the vocals and music and provides an option to user to emphasize on whatever is preferred.

My experience of watching Vu VOD Upscaler was quite good and the difference in audio/video quality was noticeable. Vu stealth launched this technology in the premium Android range of TVs, so the customers who bought this might have experience better audio/video quality, all thanks to Vu VOD Upscaler.

 Vu VOD Upscaler technology currently comes in 3 range of Vu TVs:

Available in: 43” (Rs. 30000), 50” (Rs39000), 55” (Rs. 42000), 65” (Rs. 66000)

2. Vu Ultrasmart TV

Vu Ultrasmart full HD TV comes with Netflix, Amazon Prime & Youtube Apps all accessible via hotkeys on the remote. The high bright panel, and built-in Dolby and DBX-TV audio deliver good video and audio content. This TV has a nice sleek piano design body.

Available in: 32” (Rs. 14,500), 40” (Rs. 21,000), 49” (Rs. 31,000)

3. Vu Premium Android

Vu premium Android is a 4K TV which uses the Vu VOD Upscaler along with built-in Dolby MS12 Audio & DBx-tv to deliver wider soundstage audio quality & cinema quality video. It comes with Android 8.0 Oreo and the playstore has a lot of apps for entertainment. The remote of Vu Premium Android supports Vu ActiVoice feature for voice commands.

Available in:  43” (Rs. 35,000), 50” (Rs.41,000), 55” (Rs.47,000), 65” (Rs.72,000)

Best Bluetooth Earphones under Rs. 2000 for Indian users

  1. SoundMagic E10BT

SoundMagic E10BT is a Bluetooth earphone which is built for people who enjoy loud music. The sound driver amplifies the music over the normal volume and gives you the best music experience. The battery pack in SoundMagic E10BT is bigger, so one can expect better battery life. The audio quality is really great and it’s clear too.

Overall this is one of the best Bluetooth earphones available in this range. You might need to wait till it’s in stock again. There are various online sites where you can shop from latest collection of bluetooth earphones.

  1. JBL TUNE 205BT

JBL is one of the best companies out there dealing in audio devices. One such budget Bluetooth earphone is the JBL Tune 205BT. This earphone is famous for the premium audio quality it offers. Here the take is, enjoying music with a good amount of bass. This time its a choice for people who enjoy good bass along with the rhythm. The battery life will last for around 6 hrs which is decent I would say. Bluetooth earphones do have this issue of charging, but then you enjoy no strings(wire) life. Here you get a tangle-free flat cable joining the two earbuds of JBL TUNE 205BT.

ASUS TUF FX505 design

ASUS TUF FX505 gaming laptop review

ASUS has quite a long range of gaming laptops in the ROG series. Mostly the ROG laptops cost a bit higher but with the new TUF series laptops, they might fit into your budget. One such laptop is the ASUS TUF FX505 which is the sucessor to the FX504. So let us check out the laptop review and if it offers good performance at low price.

ASUS TUF FX505 gaming laptop review:

Design

ASUS laptops have some really tough builds and some great looks. With the TUF series in the market the design has changed a bit from the outside. The ASUS TUF FX505 has some grooves cut out at all four corners. The design is quite good considering its a gaming laptop. The chassis is made out of hard plastic and is of good quality. The keyboard base can be pressed if applied some pressure, but it doesn’t bother much while gaming. The screen has got some flex if you apply some real pressure to twist it. The laptop has brushed texture on the outside lid and inside of the laptop too. There are air vents on the right, back, and at the bottom of the laptop. The typing experience on the keyboard is just great. The WASD keys are transparent. The trackpad works in a decent manner too. The laptop weighs around 2.3 kg. As for the ports goes you have power jack, gigabit ethernet port, HDMI, USB 2.0, 2 USB 3.1, audio-microphone jack all placed on the left hand side. If you are a right-handed person then you can play games without getting issues from all the cables. On the left and right side are the speakers. Overall the build and design of FX505 laptop is good.

Display

The FX505 has a very thin bezel display on the sides. It sports a 15.6-inch Led Backlit FHD anti-glare display which comes in two refresh rates options of 60Hz & 144Hz. Getting a 144Hz display in some budget gaming laptop is a good sign. The viewing angles of the display are just great, and the color reproduction is quite good. You can adjust the brightness directly from the keyboard itself. Overall the display is pretty good for gaming, watching movies etc.

Performance

Coming to the core part of any gaming laptop – the FX505 comes in two processor variants – the i7-8750H clocked at 2.2 GHz and the i5-8300H clocked at 2.3 GHz. I got the i7 model for review. As for RAM, it comes with 8GB of DDR4 2666MHz one, and you have two slots for expansion that can go up to 32GB dual channel. For storage, you have 1 TB of SATA HDD(FireCuda) and a 256GB SATA 3.0 M.2 SSD. Decent specifications which are expandable in terms of memory. Overall this config did work great in normal use cases like heavy multi-tasking work and loading heavy software. The boot time with Windows 10 OS was short which is good. I liked the typing experience on this laptop very much due to the proper spacing and the key feedback. Talking about the graphics, one has two variant- the first one with 4 GB of NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti & the other with 6GB of NVIDIA GTX 1060. The graphics performance for gaming is kind of average I would say. Now the reason being, you can play most games smoothly at medium settings, some with good experience at ultra settings too. But there are times where FPS would really matter and you need to lower the graphics settings to achieve it. The laptop makes sound like any other gaming laptop while heavy gaming and in silent mode, you can still hear the fan a bit. The temperatures do rise while gaming, but its nothing too hot that you can’t handle. The laptop gets a bit warm from the center and prolonged use may cause some heat touching your right hand as the vent is on right-hand side too. The copper heat sink pipes are shared between the CPU & GPU. I would say, overall cooling system could have been improved. The overall gaming experience is pretty decent.

Sound & Connectivity

As you can see there are three USB ports – one 2.0 port and other two 3.1 ports. You have a port for HDMI and a highspeed ethernet port too. Normal Wifi & Bluetooth connections work in a decent manner while using gaming accessories. As for sound you have 2 speakers and the placement is something which gives decent audio output. I wouldn’t say it is loud, but decent for a normal gaming laptop.

Battery:

ASUS FX505 comes with a 3 cell 48Wh battery that will last for around 1 hr for gaming and 3.5-4 hrs for video playback when there are no background apps & keyboard backlit is off too. You can use NVIDIA settings to save battery for a longer duration. The laptop could have lasted more on battery. One common issues is drop in FPS while playing games over battery.

Price

ASUS TUF FX505 is priced at Rs. 76,390 for the i5 variant & Rs.88,990 for the i7 variant on Amazon India website. As for the GTX 1060 variant the price is Rs. 1,19,990 on Flipkart.

To sum it up, the FX505 has a great design, good display, decent gaming performance with an average battery. To get the best gaming performance for no framedrops, one might need to adjust the graphics settings accordingly. Let us know if you would go for this laptop or not in the comment section below. We would love to solve any queries or doubts regarding the review.
