Review: Philips Health Watch

There are so many smart watches and activity trackers around that it can be hard to find the perfect one to suit your needs. Philips recently sent us their Health Watch, which, as the name suggests, has health at the heart of everything it does.

The Philips Health Watch does everything you would expect from an activity tracker – monitoring your steps as well as your heart rate and quality of your sleep. But rather than just monitoring your heart rate whilst you’re active it also shows your natural resting heart rate and heart rate zones. The watch also estimates your heart rate recovery and really helps you to understand and monitor how your body works, making it easy to flag if there’s a problem or if you should have a rest or slow down.

Adding Music to our Bathtimes with the Panasonic ALL05

LP and Little Man love having a bath. It’s always been one of their favourite times of the day. A time when we get them washed as quickly as we can so they can play for as long as possible – splashing, singing and laughing with each other.

But we’ve recently added something else to our bath time routine – music! Using the Panasonic ALL05 we’re able to play the children their favourite nursery rhymes, chart music or songs that Hubby and I love from years gone by. We combine our shared tastes in music and it adds an extra routine to bath time.
