SW-200 Yamax Digiwalker Pedometer

Prix : CDN$ 30.83

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very good unit, July 5 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Look at how complex most pedometers are. If you just need to count steps this one is the best. It's tough. Well made. Accurate. One button!

I called the 1-800 number because I had a question. A person picked up and was very helpful.

And No, it isn't too expensive for what you get. Don't be a cheap skate.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Cheap Hinge Door: AVOID THIS PRODUCT, April 23 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very cheaply made. The hinge door that allows the item to stand is held together by tiny little plastic eyes. Snaps with the slightest force. I would avoid this product for this reason. Unfortunately I missed the Amazon return/replace window. So, now, God help me, I have to go to Philips to try to see what can be done. Hassles I'm not looking forward to. Save yourself the grieve and pass on this model.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential reading for ios/mac devs, Jan. 5 2015
This is the only serious book on auto layout. I think there's a lot of great information in a compact book. Auto layout is a rather dry and unsexy topic in some ways, but you can't really build ios apps without knowing it well. I think this book has moments of dry humour that are welcome. I like the small sections approach. My main gripe is that I started the book a number of times and put it down simply because Erica starts with a pretty intimidating example using all kinds of macros that are not included. So, I went off to read some tutorials first and came back at it. Eventually, I realized that part of the problem was just that the book could have been structured in a more graduated way so as to better invite the reader into this mysterious world. The bonus is that Erica offers the reader a lot of handy categories to use to get you up and running.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent diffuser, Jan. 5 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a decent diffuser, but I really have nothing to compare it to. The seller got the item here in a hurry and the price was very fair considering what others are asking. My only real complaint with this unit is 1) the 7 hour setting doesn't really seem to put out much mist after a while even though there's lots of water and oil, 2) the green/orange light is totally unnecessary and it is another light you have to block if you want some darkness in a bedroom at night. I haven't done a huge comparison of these diffusers, but my partner seemed to think this one was one of the better ones around. It does make a difference for sleeping if you invest in some good oils that can help with breathing at night.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A device straight out of the 1990's, Jan. 4 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've been using iOS devices since the iPad 1. I thought I'd give the Kindle a shot, since I like the idea of a dedicated device for reading and eink seems appealing. Anyhow, my view is that this device is unbelievably inferior to iOS. It lags like crazy. Highlighting is so slow and cumbersome. The screen is so tiny, and the device is too bulky for what it does. This is to say nothing of the dollar store build quality on this machine. I currently have an iPad 2 air and I simply can't stand this Kindle another moment. It's not ready for prime time in my view. Amazon should buck up or get out of the device business, because this just isn't anywhere near good enough in 2015. Anyhow, I gave it a shot. Now I know. The Kindle is not for me.

Total junk. I didn't get past an initial examination of this light. The battery hatch is trash. It doesn't stay put. Such cheap plastic. Dollar store quality. Judging by the other reviews here people are getting used to this kind of trash. Return.

Brilliant for wearing over glasses. I use mine to block blue light. Yeah, I'm one of those people.

Don't waste your money or time. These are total junk. Not really suitable for any serious timing task. I'm initiating a return. I doubt you can buy such a timer that isn't junk. Better off looking at digital or software timers.

Extremely poorly written. In dire need of editing. Repetitive. Too many remedial errors. Don't buy it.
