Have you tried taking off the foil?


Foil? Butter has always come wrapped in paper on this planet...


Not the kind you get in restaurants. It comes in individual single
packets wrapped in foil. I put those in my pocket to warm up, but
sometime I forget and end up taking them home.


I bet you have a stash of ketchup packets too.


Sugar packets, too.

I don't like the fact that whoever wrote the blurb didn't bother to have
a native English speaker edit it. Seems impressive for the price,
though. Let us know how it works.

I just ordered this intellectual bracelet -- an excellent example of
Chinese advertising spiel.

Seems like a good deal. But what is 22 over 30? If that's a BP
reading, then you're dead.


I'd guess that's the time: 22:30 on March 26.


Could be, but I've never seen that format in digital time. But I
think the Chinese read from top to bottom, not left to right like us.
But the analog times shows 2:05, if it was 22:30, that means they were
photographing it in the middle of the night, or they didn't set the
time properly.

And 15C ? Did they take that picture
outdoor? If that's the studio temp, it's way too cold.


I'd guess it was outside on a cloudy day.

In the fourth pic, I like the roman numerals, but what's 2056?


The number of steps. See the little green footprints?


But the next pic shows 37888 steps. However that could be the total
steps and 2056 is todays steps. But why would a display model have so
many steps?

When you get it, tell us how it works. I might buy one too.

You're overthinking this. They probably took a lot of different
pictures and picked the best ones.

And 15C ? Did they take that picture

To show that it can count 5 digits? I imagine that a number of people
played with it to make sure it actually worked.

I like shopping the cheap Chinese sites. We've had only one serious
problem ($100 phablet which didn't recognize any phone SIM) and the
correspondence with the not-even-close English speakers was maddening.
They insisted, among other things, that installing a Chinese word
processor on our computer would solve the problem. Ultimately the CC
company refunded our money. We also got some bad micro sdcards and
keyboard adapters, but the Chinese companies reversed the charges on
those without asking for the defective stuff to be shipped back.

CZ is just as sparkly as diamond and you don't have to worry about
losing it.

Don't bother. The only reliable function is the step counter. 'Sleep'
does work if you pair it with your phone -- there's no display on the
unit itself. The HR and BP functions are really iffy, such that they're
worthless. The battery seems to discharge really fast. It needs to be
worn uncomfortably tight so that no external light can slip under the
sensors. It works better if you wear the display on the inside of your
wrist. It's a real bitch to put on -- designed for people with 3 hands.

It has a weather app (based on the gps reading) which claims 23F and
snowing in SoCal. I'm pretty sure that's wrong.

I emailed dx.com. We'll see what they do about it.

Thanks. You just saved me the cost of beer. I owe you.

It may not be as bad as I thought. There was a protective film on it,
preventing perfect contact. BUT it charged completely the first time,
but seems to NOT being willing to recharge.

There's another one there for ~$6 more that also does O2sat, which would
be valuable.

What, you only have ONE? I got tired of losing the 10mm so I bought a
dozen of them. I know where 3 of them are now. I think.
