VALEN­TINE’S GIFT GUIDE Think­ing of buy­ing the ‘per­fect’ gift for your sig­nif­i­cant other this Valen­tines’ Day? Don’t go spend­ing sleep­less nights crack­ing your head over it, as our Gift Guide has plenty of won­der­ful gift sug­ges­tions that would cer­tainly



4 It most cer­tainly looks like round is the new square, as the Sam­sung Gear S2 is yet an­other wear­able to bear a cir­cu­lar dis­play – a 1.2-inch (360 x 360) Su­per AMOLED one, no less. The Tizen-run­ning Gear S2 is just as much of a smart­watch as it is a fit­ness tracker, as con­noted by the mul­ti­tude of sen­sors that are packed into it, in­clud­ing an ac­celerom­e­ter, barom­e­ter, gy­ro­scope, am­bi­ent light sen­sor, and the oblig­a­tory heart rate mon­i­tor.



5 If your Valen­tine doesn’t fancy round­faced smart­watches all that much, you can al­ways con­sider get­ting him or her the Zen­Watch 2 in­stead, which looks equally just as suave as its rounder coun­ter­parts, if not more. Hard­ware-wise, the Zen­Watch 2 is out­fit­ted with a 1.2GHz Qual­comm Snap­dragon 400 pro­ces­sor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of eMMC flash. The dis­play of the IP67 wa­ter-re­sis­tant Zen­Watch 2 is avail­able in two sizes: 1.63-inch and 1.45-inch – both shar­ing the same 320 x 320 AMOLED touch dis­play.

6 Take charge of your flex­i­ble fit­ness regimes with the Fit­bit Charge and Fit­bit Flex. They look rather sim­i­lar to one an­other, and they share pretty sim­i­lar core func­tions as well, in­clud­ing the abil­ity to track your steps, the dis­tance you’ve trav­eled, the calo­ries you’ve burnt, the time you’ve spent ac­tive, and the qual­ity of your sleep. The Fit­bit Charge has one or two ad­di­tional fea­tures up its sleeves though, such as the abil­ity to track the num­ber of floors you’ve climbed, caller ID, and a clock. Yes, the Flex doesn’t come with a clock.


7 The vivos­mart HR is equipped with all the es­sen­tial fit­ness tracker fea­tures that were re­gret­tably omit­ted from the orig­i­nal vivos­mart – which in­cludes a heart rate mon­i­tor. Garmin has since fit­ted the vivos­mart HR with a heart rate mon­i­tor that works around the clock to pro­vide a more ac­cu­rate in­di­ca­tion of your over­all well-be­ing. Apart from be­ing able to keep track of your steps, calo­ries, and dis­tance, the vivos­mart HR is also able to mon­i­tor the amount of steps that you’ve climbed, thanks to its in­te­grated baro­met­ric al­time­ter.
