Battery life is also significantly better, lasting between five to seven days while conventional smartwatches will be knocked out in half the time.</p> <p dir="ltr">It&rsquo;s available in five different colours: Jet Black, Cherry Red, Arctic White, Orange and Grey, and costs S$249 if you want to grab it from the shelves immediately. It&#39;s slightly more expensive than getting it from the <a href="https://getpebble.com/checkout" target="_blank">Pebble online store</a>, which costs US$150 and an additional US$25 shipping cost, which adds up to approximately S$220 based on the current exchange rate.</p> <p dir="ltr">But hey, you can&rsquo;t put a price on instant gratification because nothing is more satisfying than unboxing your purchase immediately.</p> <p dir="ltr">There&rsquo;s also the L Collection to choose from, which features a polished white exterior and interchangeable genuine cowhide leather straps in Aspen White and Midnight Black. The limited edition costs slightly more at S$279 and is available only at selected EpiCentre and&nbsp;EpiLife stores from 26 May to 26 June.</p> <p dir="ltr">But if you&rsquo;re gunning for the recently launched Pebble Steel, there&rsquo;s no word on its availability yet.

As in, Big. But what else has the Rufus Cuff brought to the already crowded smartwatch table, besides its own gravitational field?</p> <p>Well, it&#39;s got access to the full Google Play Store for starters. Apps, games, music, movies - the whole lot. That&#39;s an impressive feat for a smartwatch, and it&#39;s all thanks to the phone-like size of the screen, which will actually allow you to play games and use apps without obscuring everything with your fingers.</p> <p>The larger screen also means you&#39;ve got access to a full Android keyboard, making this the first smartwatch you can actually use to respond to emails and messages with. A full web browser also means you can browse the wonders of the interwebs straight from your wrist.</p> <p>Naturally it can also keep track of your steps and other exercise stats like speed and distance, and it&#39;s even got a front-facing camera and microphone for video calls.</p> <p>Chuck in 16GB of storage, an LED flashlight, forgotten phone reminders and iOS and android compatibility, and we&#39;ve got ourselves one of the most fully featured wearable devices around.</p> <p>Sure you can&#39;t actually make calls on it independently of your phone as it lacks a SIM slot, but built-in Wi-Fi takes care of emails and browsing even when you&#39;re not paired up with your smartphone.</p> <p>Plus you&#39;ll probably feel ridiculous enough playing Candy Crush on it as it is, let alone holding it up to your face Dick Tracy style. Do you actually enjoy making babies cry? Of course not.</p> <p>The Rufus Cuff can currently be snapped up on indiegogo for the earlybird price of US$230. Its creators are looking for a substantial US$250,000 total to make it a mass-produced reality, so if you want your wearables to go all out then you&#39;d better show your support.</p> <p><strong>READ

The TomTom&rsquo;s web app isn&rsquo;t as slick as those of its rivals but a bespoke smartphone app has just gone live and you can sync to some 3rd party services. Tracking of runs, swims and cycles makes it great for triathletes in training, but the lack of a dedicated triathlon mode means it&rsquo;s more awkward than it should be for actual races. The accelerometer-based swimming mode can also be a bit patchy. But it lasts for days, the clear display gives stats at a glance and the &lsquo;training partner&rsquo; pacing function is brilliant. There&rsquo;s no Wi-Fi transfer but the potential is great given the price.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="TomTom Multi-Sport" alt="TomTom Multi-Sport" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/TomTomMultiSport-3.jpg?1395103074" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-review-rating"><legend>Review Rating</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 0 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>A comparative bargain and a must for multi-disciplinarians</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-preview"> <div class="field-label">Preview:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Disabled </div> </div> </div> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/smartwatch/tomtom-multi-sport/review#comments Health and fitness Smartwatch Wearable tech Mon, 17 Mar 2014 12:07:02 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1433846 at http://www.stuff.tv
