Garmin Forerunner 610 sports watch

15 Apr

Do you participate in triathlons as though it was a walk in the park? Those who nod their head in agreement would want to get a timepiece that is capable of living up to their highly active lifestyle – we’re talking about the Garmin Forerunner 610 sports watch. As you know, Garmin deals mostly with GPS navigation systems, and when they aren’t dreaming up of better ways to let you know where you’re going, along comes an idea like a GPS watch.

This slim, robust and weatherproof touchscreen electronic gadgets will cater for serious runners who want an advantage during their routines, as the Garmin Forerunner 610 is capable of shrugging off water like a duck, and is responsive enough to work even when you’re wearing running gloves. Basically, the Forerunner 610 intends to stick to you like a barnacle, coaching you at every single step to help you cross the finish line in the fastest time possible.

The Forerunner 610 lives up to its billing though, since it is capable of “going ahead” of you in some way so that you can figure out the next move as you digest an inflow of basic information including your pace, distance and time, keeping track of your effort via your heart rate. This will help you create interval workouts or perhaps even race a friend who is residing on a different continent from yours.

A vibration motor inside the Forerunner 610 electronic gadgets will be able to let you know your training intensity courtesy of the new Training Effect feature. Basically, any well read athlete need not have a coach or sports scientist right beside if you know what to do with the kind of information garnered by the sports watch itself. Also, you can learn to do your best always thanks to Virtual Racer, letting you race yourself or the previous bests of other users – sort of like the ghost function in Mario Kart as you zip around the track to beat your previous best time.

There is no word on pricing just yet for the Garmin Forerunner 610 electronic gadgets, but with it being a flagship, we don’t think it will be cheap. On the bright side, at least your pockets will be lighter after getting this so that you are more fleet-footed.

MSI’s Fusion-powered X370 laptop gets $579 price tag, hits Amazon and Newegg

15 Apr

Our story about MSI’s X370 electronic gadgets ultraportable getting a dose of AMD Fusion ended on a cliffhanger — the company stopped short of revealing just how much the thing would cost. Well, now we have our answer: this 13.4-incher comes with a $599 price tag and is up for grabs on Newegg. (Amazon already cut the price to $579, but isn’t shipping it yet yet.)

For the money, that sub-$600 sticker includes AMD’s new Zacate E-350 APU, 4GB of RAM, integrated Radeon HD 6310 graphics, a 500GB hard drive, a 4-in-1 memory card reader, HDMI and VGA output, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, and an 8-cell battery that MSI claims can last up to ten hours.
While it earlier seemed that consumers would get their pick of hard drives and batteries, it’s available in just one configuration for now — not that you would have been tempted to downgrade to a 4-cell, anyway.

White iPhone 4 Could Arrive within Weeks

15 Apr

The White iPhone 4 has been very elusive over the last 9 to 10 months. It was first announced along with the regular iPhone 4 tech gadgets and since then, it has been delayed over and over to a point where most people believe Apple wont bother with the device and instead launch a white iPhone 5 in the next few months.

Bloomberg is now reporting that “three people with knowledge of the plans” have said the white iPhone will be launching within the next few weeks, before the end of April.

The new version of the smartphone is expected to arrive on both the AT&T network as well as Verizon network. The report doesn’t tell us if international locations will get the device, but we suspect they will in time.

We also hear that Apple could be pushing the launch of the device so that it takes the pressure off the launch of the iPhone 5 tech gadgets later this year. By selling a lot of white iPhone 4′s, it would lower the demand for the iPhone 5 a little and help keep the shortages down to a minimum.

Reasons for the delay have never been officially announced, but have been hinted as being problems with the white coloring, problems with peeling, problems with the flash leaking as well as sensor problems. Perhaps these are all good guesses, but I doubt Apple will make any official announcement regarding this.

Price wise, expect them to cost the same as the regular black versions of the same tech gadgets.

Samsung BD-D6700 Reviews

15 Apr

The good: The Samsung BD-D6700 sports dual HDMI outputs, built-in Wi-Fi, and one of the most extensive suites of streaming video services in comparable Blu-ray players this year, including Netflix, Hulu Plus, MLB.TV, Vudu and CinemaNow. Its 1GB of onboard memory is also more than you get in most of the competition.

The bad: It’s tough to justify the BD-D6700’s high price, especially with the Sony PS3 electronic gadgets being available for only slightly more. And while the dual HDMI outputs are nice, most buyers that need them will be just as satisfied with a player with a single HDMI output and using the optical output for audio.

The bottom line: The Samsung BD-D6700 is an excellent all-around Blu-ray player with dual HDMI outputs, but for most buyers its upgrades won’t justify its high price.

Blu-ray players have come way down in price in the last couple of years, so the main question most buyers will have about the Samsung BD-D6700 electronic gadgets are is: why should I spend $270 (current street price) on a Blu-ray player? Samsung’s answer is dual HDMI outputs, which are necessary only if you have a non-3D-compatible receiver and demand to hear the real Dolby Digital True HD or DTS Master soundtrack. Less demanding listeners can hook up the optical digital audio jack instead of the second HDMI output and get basically the same sound quality.

There’s plenty to like about the BD-D6700 overall, including built-in Wi-Fi, tons of streaming video services and smartphone control, but all of those features are available on the step-down BD-D6500 too, which is almost $100 cheaper. Buyers who don’t need dual HDMI will get more bang for their buck by spending a little more for the Sony PlayStation 3 Slim or by going with a cheaper alternative, whether that’s Samsung’s BD-D6500 or a competing Wi-Fi Blu-ray player.

The premium-priced BD-D6700 has several added features including built-in Wi-Fi, 3D Blu-ray support, and 2D-to-3D conversion. While Wi-Fi and 3D Blu-ray support are worthwhile in our book, we wouldn’t put much stock in the 2D-to-3D conversion feature, which is more of a gimmick.

Also note that the 1GB of onboard memory is a step up from Samsung’s cheaper BD-D6500 electronic gadgets, which doesn’t have any onboard memory. On the other hand, the onboard memory is only used for BD-Live features, which we never find ourselves using.
