Toshiba Gigabeat F20 HDD player review

Toshiba Gigabeat F20 HDD player review

Toshiba MP3 players can be classified as products that many have heard about, but few have seen. They enjoy well-deserved popularity in Japan and, like all Japanese equipment that is not supplied in large volumes to Europe, are of particular interest to "advanced users". Until now, Toshiba's product reviews in the field of personal audio were absent on our site, but now we will correct this unfortunate misunderstanding. Interest in the Gigabeat series from Toshiba is also spurred on by the fact that one of the devices of this particular series served as a prototype for the heavyweight Microsoft Zune, recently presented to the general public by the Redmond giant.

The Toshiba Gigabeat F20 is already a veteran player, and another model has taken its place in the company's lineup. Be that as it may, during the first year of its existence, it was sold only in Japan and was not available to buyers from other countries until the end of 2005 and the beginning of 2006. Despite the fact that the player was originally introduced about two years ago, it still looks very advantageous against the background of modern devices, largely due to technical solutions that are somewhat ahead of world trends.

The device lacks video functionality, but otherwise it provides quite decent features, the list of which looks quite expected. The F20 plays MP3 and WMA, connects to Napster's music buying service, and allows you to view photos. There are no functions for recording a signal from a microphone and receiving radio broadcasts, here the F20 copies the iPod, which, apparently, was conceived by a competitor.

The F-series includes three models with 1.8-inch drives with 10, 20 and 40 GB, made naturally by Toshiba.

Due to the fact that the player was released quite a long time ago, the purpose of this material is not to get acquainted with the new device, but to create some foundation against which in the future it will be possible to trace the development of the Gigabeat line up to the appearance of Microsoft Zune.

Body and design

The player is dressed in a rectangular case in a silvery color scheme. The body materials are plastic and metal alloy. Moreover, the metal used in the design practically does not give itself away: a similar effect occurs from time to time in portable electronics, for the first time I met it in the process of testing iRiver H10. To make sure that the back panel and part of the front panel are really metal, only careful “tapping” with a female fingernail and applying it to the cheek and other sensitive places helps.

Side inserts, ends and a decorative insert on the front panel are made of plastic. This fact does not prevent the case from demonstrating the high quality of workmanship, assembly and fitting of parts. Despite the fact that the quality of the bodies of today's players made in China has seriously increased and is in most cases quite worthy (of course, we are talking about well-known brands), picking up the F20, you involuntarily remember that the player was made in Japan. It seems that something subtly reminds of this, or it is my love for Japanese technology that speaks in me, explaining a slightly subjective approach.

Most of the front panel is occupied by a plastic decorative insert with a chrome-like mirror finish; a display and a control “cross” are inscribed in it, which are discussed below. The use of smooth mirror surfaces in portable technology, such as players and mobile phones, has not been really successful in my memory. Naturally, not in terms of attractive appearance, but purely in a utilitarian sense. Such a coating is instantly covered with fingerprints, easily scratched, wiped off and worn out in every possible way, while all neoplasms on the body become visible at a glance. On the other hand, of course, mirror inserts make the appearance of the device more catchy, bright, attractive, that is, in general, directly affect the level of sales in a favorable way. Fortunately, many people of both sexes are more likely to “peck” on a bright little thing that glares in a shop window under a bright lamp than on a matte “fuzzy”.

If you forget for a moment about the need to frequently wipe the front panel, then the player looks really very good. Shades of silver in technology are generally a win-win option, but if Hand Cream in Nigeria did not fail the design, then the device literally starts to catch the eye in a normal setting (not in a shop window). The rectangular shape of the body, the vertical orientation of the display and the control cross harmonize well with each other, giving the player a solid look that is appropriate in almost any environment.

On the front side there is only a display and a “cross”, the back side of the case is left empty. The same goes for the left sidebar. Additional controls and connectors are placed on the right side panel and ends. The top end contains connectors for headphones and AC adapter, on the bottom there is a universal branded connector, as well as a standard USB and a miniature battery switch. This is the first time I have encountered such a function, I have not seen anything like this on any of the players before. Finally, on the right panel there was a place for three buttons and a rocker for additional control.

Management

Due to the fact that the player was created with a clear aim to "wrestle" with the iPod for the Japanese, and then for the European market, its designers could not help but try to sculpt something that could at least not lag too far behind ClickWheel in terms of level " wow factor. Naturally, the choice fell on touch control. So, the F20 has a “cross” on the front panel called Plus Touch, which in one form or another migrated to other players of the company. It accounts for the lion's share of manipulation, but it differs from ClickWheel in the way it works. First of all, Plus Touch is not pressed in any way, that is, none of its parts has a horizontal or vertical stroke, it is firmly fixed. The best way to work with it can be explained by the example of a five-way joystick. To move through the vertical (menu) and horizontal (songs) lists, you need to touch the Plus Touch part with your finger. If you hold your finger, then, accordingly, the list will scroll, or rewind will turn on. The central part of the "cross" partly performs the functions of the central ClickWheel key, although the menu item is selected by "pressing" to the right. The main difference from the iPod approach is that there is no need to move your finger: all actions are carried out with a short or long touch.

The sensitivity of the "cross" is at a quite acceptable level, from time to time it happens that it does not react the first time, but such a frequency of failures is within comfortable limits and does not cause irritation.

The rest of the controls are located on the right sidebar and are represented by three round buttons, complemented by a rocker. The latter serves to adjust the volume, while the remaining buttons control power, menus and tagging/bookmarking. One of them can be additionally programmed to call various functions.

The size of the buttons is average, there are no problems with pressing them, since the buttons have a medium-length stroke and fix clicks with a click.

In addition to the "cross" and buttons, there are two more sliding switches on the F20 body: one of them is responsible for blocking the keyboard, the second – for battery activity. The first switch evokes almost no emotions: it clearly performs its function, and similar blocking tools can be found in any modern player.

But the battery switch is as rare as it gets. To be honest, its purpose seems very vague, perhaps it serves to disconnect the battery from the player's circuits in order to avoid accidental activation or fatal full discharge when stored for a long time.

The player control scheme as a whole is quite successful, its creators managed to embody something new, previously unseen in the hardware, but at the same time provide sufficient convenience for controlling the device.

Display and Menu

The display of the F20 at the time of the appearance of the device in Japan was noticeably ahead in terms of characteristics of the displays of all the players available on the market. Today it has not lost its relevance, but it has become less advanced, the efforts of other manufacturers, in particular Apple, have “pulled up” the average level of performance higher. Toshiba F20 is equipped with a bright display with a diagonal of 2.2 inches, based on a TFT-matrix with a resolution of 320×240 pixels. The colors on the display are very saturated and contrasting, the image quality is worthy of all praise. True, a good impression of the display is facilitated by a large number of well-drawn and pre-installed wallpapers and screensavers. Often, very decent displays in players do not open up their full potential precisely because there is nothing corny for it to open up.

On the other hand, there are often situations when, pardon the tautology, against the background of the background image you can't see the numbers of the counters of the elapsed and remaining playback time. There is a kind of conflict between color schemes, background images and splash screens that are superimposed on these images.

Otherwise, the display is quite ordinary (taking into account today's realities): in direct daylight, the image fades, but remains readable, graphic files look pretty decent (more on that in the appropriate section). System fonts are quite balanced, there are no problems with reading information from the display.

The player's menus have a rather unusual organization: there is no menu screen as such, and the items and sections themselves appear in a separate "window" on top of the background and splash screen of the display. The high resolution of the display allows you to minimize the number of contractions.

The items and sections of the main and additional menus are represented by labels. Main menu composition: Artist, Album, Genre, Playlist, Folder, Bookmark, Recycle Bin, Photo, Demo Music, Setup. The main menu is called by pressing the power button, oddly enough.

Artist, Album, Genre. Sort the contents of the hard drive according to the artist name, album name or genre of the work.

Playlist. Section for working with playlists.

Folder. Browse folders on your hard drive.

Bookmark. Bookmark tools.

Recycle Bin. Just like the battery switch, a feature I've never seen before. Its essence boils down to the role of the Recycle Bin in Windows.

Demo music. Demo mode of the player.

Setup. Settings menu, from here you can configure all aspects of the player.

In particular, all timers are configured here, the function of a programmable button is assigned, PC connection modes, Plus Touch operation, playback and slideshow are selected. Here you can also manually adjust the equalizer, select a preset, limit the sound volume, select a background image and interface theme, set the system time, select a menu language and view firmware information.

Complete Setup menu: Sleep Timer, Backlight Off Time, A-Button Function, Operation Guide, Beep, Auto Power Off, USB Priority, PC Connections, Play Mode, Intro, Equalizer/SRS WOW, User Setting EQ, Preset Volume, Plus Touch, Wallpaper, Screen Theme, Slide Interval, Slideshow Effect, Sort, Time Format, Date/Time, System, Language.

Working with the player's menu is somewhat unusual compared to more "European" models, but on the whole it is quite comfortable. You need to get used to the location of the items, the menu cannot be called transparent and intuitive. However, it takes a couple of tens of minutes maximum to master Plus Touch and the menu, so the F20 interface cannot be called complicated either.

Power and PC connection

The player is powered by a built-in lithium-ion battery, the manufacturer does not provide data on its capacity. Judging by the declared operating time of 16 hours against the backdrop of a bright and probably “gluttonous” display, it is at least 700 mAh. The battery is charged via the USB bus, when installed in a cradle, or from the AC adapter supplied in the kit. True, in Russian conditions, the latter is of little use, because it has a European plug, equipped with three thick flat pins. It is possible, however, that this is only a problem of the tested sample, and in other batches the plug of the adapter is normal.

In real conditions, the player demonstrates a decent operating time, in the process of testing it worked for about 14 hours with numerous on-off and various functions; the volume level was set at about 85-90% of the maximum.

The player connects to a personal computer using a standard USB cable. The operating system defines the F20 as a removable media, so any file manipulation is carried out by standard means. True, the files recorded in this way can only be transported, played back or viewed on the player will not work. In order to record music and graphic files on the F20, you will need the proprietary software manager Gigabeat Room or Windows Media Player 10. Both of these managers “see” music and files already recorded with the help of another, with “adding” there are no problems. It is curious that the music recorded with https://tonaton.com/c_farm-machinery-equipment their help is on the disk in unencrypted form and can be copied to another computer.

It is also worth noting one more nuance: when copying to the player, WMA and WAV files are converted. The former are "driven into the frame" of the WMA CBR 32-160 Kbps bitrate, while the latter are fully converted with the same parameters.

The speed of copying data to the player is at an average level and is 5-7 MB per second. At the same time, the speed of Gigabeat Room is significantly lower, the program is frankly unhurried. This can be written in the negative link F20 + program manager.

Graphic files, sound, headphones

Viewing photos (graphic files) using F20 is implemented without any complaints, according to the established "canons" and does not cause any difficulties. When viewing files, the screen is automatically oriented horizontally. All files found on the disk are displayed in a 3×4 matrix. This approach, in my opinion, is optimal, there are enough details left on the reduced images. Slideshows are supported with customizable display time for each slide and how to transition from one slide to another.

Files copied to disk are automatically transferred to the Picture folder, where they are stored in their original form. It is also nice that the player automatically "pulls up" the photos of disc covers or "apples" of records recorded in the same folder with audio files and displays them during playback. Right there, by selecting the desired item in the menu, you can view the file without switching to Photo mode.

Japanese HDD players, such as those made by Sony and Toshiba, are often praised for their high sound quality and are well-deservedly popular in this area. Toshiba F20 does not undermine the reputation of the motherland and sounds very worthy. The declared signal-to-noise ratio of 95 decibels only confirms the conclusions. The sound of the player seemed to me saturated, dense, bass. The low frequencies with the equalizer off do sound richer than on the Archos 404 or iPod 5G with the same settings. In general, the sound quality of the F20 is at a very decent level: four or five years ago it could have delighted any music lover, but today the overall "bar" of sound quality, constantly raised over the years, is really high, which cannot do not please.

The player does not have a multi-band equalizer with the ability to manually adjust, instead it is proposed to adjust the "high" and "low" frequencies, without any indication of the range, or choose from presets, which, however, are quite a fair amount.

Complete headphones are unremarkable "hammers" made of gray rubberized plastic with silver and "chrome" inserts. Their sound quality is average for headphones of this kind and is suitable only for listening to simple pop songs.

Conclusions and impressions

The main disadvantage of the player, in relation to today's realities, is a large case, especially in thickness. Although here the F20 almost coincides with Creative Zen Vision:M, apparently, rounded edges give the latter lightness in the hands.

Otherwise, the Toshiba F20 doesn't look like an outdated model, having been first introduced almost two years ago. The strengths of the device are an excellent loud sound, the ability to “pump” most headphones, a bright and high-quality display. The lack of the ability to work with video even today is not as critical as it seems, but the fact that, when creating a competitor to the iPod, the Japanese did not implement FM functionality and a voice recorder in the device is puzzling.

In general, the F20, which, due to its age, is rare, but at an excellent price of 5-5.5 thousand rubles, is quite capable of appealing to connoisseurs of high-quality sound who do not strive for bloated functionality, but are looking for a device with a good display.

Be that as it may, the F20 already shows why the Gigabeat platform was chosen by Microsoft as a prototype for its Zune. Although not too well known and widespread, these Toshiba players are quite capable of competing with HDD devices from Apple, Creative, Archos and Sony. They contain the company's own developments in the field of control and interface, and, in the end, the design of these Japanese toys is also quite good.

Smart watches are useless, but I bought them anyway

In this article there will be several reasons why smartwatches could not become my favorite gadget, although a few use cases were found.

Today, on the day I write this text, the Apple Watch Series 3 on my arm is exactly 7 months old. During this time, I have not found any serious use in them, and if something happens to them, then I will not worry a bit. And I'm not likely to buy a device like this again. In this material, there will be several reasons why smart watches could not become my favorite gadget, although a few use cases were still found.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

Purchase history

I'm just sure that in the comments under this text someone will write something like “these apple people are snickering, buying everything, even unnecessary, because it's Apple”, so I'll start with the history of buying this gadget.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

I got my first experience with smartwatches in 2013, and it was the first generation of Sony SmartWatch. In fact, it was a buggy thing with a not very responsive screen, which still needed to get used to: the fact is that activating the screen with a movement of the wrist worked only when the watch was at a certain and not quite familiar angle, and even with a delay of a second at one and a half. There was really no use for the watch, they worked terribly slowly, constantly buggy, and thank Sony engineers for what they did, probably the most unfortunate way in the world to connect the charger: the cable had to be placed in a special place and fixed with a clothespin on the watch case. After a couple of months, the clothespin spring weakened, and in order to charge the watch, you had to either put books on top or use an elastic band for bills.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

A month later, I spat and took them back to the store, where the defect was recognized as warranty and the money was returned to me. Thank you for this engineers. Since then, I have not even thought about buying a smartwatch, mindful of this bad experience, and have used an all-analogue watch from the Danish company Skagen, bought at some kind of sale at a good discount.

But Skagen is by no means Patek Philippe or even TAG Heuer, so something happened to them after 4 years of continuous wear. Replacing the battery did not help, and since this watch was pretty tired, I decided to look for something to replace it instead of repairing it. It was not possible to find something attractive and interesting in a budget of up to 30,000 rubles, and therefore I decided to give smart watches a chance again, thinking that they would still show the time, but maybe some of the smart chips would come in handy .

The reasons why they annoy me (and sometimes those around me)

Notifications. My colleagues often list the ability to receive notifications as one of the main advantages of the Apple Watch and smartwatches in general. But if you actively use your smartphone and you have more than 10 third-party applications installed, then at some point there are a lot of notifications, and you go to the settings to cut them off from half of the applications. After some time, the bowl overflows again, and you repeat the procedure. It gets boring eventually.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

It's easier with a smartphone in this regard – put it on the table and let it vibrate for itself. If someone calls, you will understand it immediately, and notifications in messengers, mail or somewhere else in 99% of cases do not require an instant response. You sit and go about your business without being distracted.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

It won't work like that with a watch: you have to look at the time somewhere, and taking them off and on every now and then is also not an option, so they hammer on the wrist without stopping. I had to master the Do Not Disturb mode, but it also has a problem: you periodically forget to turn off this mode when you are waiting for an important call or message, and this is already fraught with some problems. I had already missed urgent messages and calls from the couriers who stood at the door, and also disrupted several important meetings. Such things.

Notifications 2. There is another subtle issue with notifications that can make you uncomfortable. Just imagine: you are sitting at a meeting, talking. And it doesn’t matter if you have a business conversation or a nice conversation with a friend. When your smartphone vibrates in your pocket, it is often somehow inconvenient to get it out and be distracted from the conversation, and when you have another display right behind your wrist, it takes one second to look at the notification on it, and in your head it seems to be absolutely okay.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

It will only seem to your interlocutor that you are constantly looking at your watch, and therefore, you are bored or you are in a hurry somewhere. I did not notice this trap until I came to a meeting with a person who also had an Apple Watch. Even I, a user of exactly the same gadget, at first subconsciously thought that a person was in a hurry somewhere, and it was time for us to wrap up, what can we say about other people.

Charging. Apple Watch needs to be charged frequently, though a little less often than a smartphone. But it’s one thing when both devices can be connected to a power outlet at night (many people have already developed such a habit), and it’s quite another when you can’t leave the clock on charge at night, since it’s on them that you “start” the alarm clock. In addition, I use a sleep tracker that monitors the quality of rest (well, you need to somehow use the smart functions of the device). I had to develop another habit – leave the watch on charge in the evening before going to the shower, and then put it back on.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

Stained and scratched. Apple Watches with ION-X glass (I don't know about the steel versions) are constantly getting smudged and picking up scratches. You have to wipe them 2-3 times a day to make the watch look at least somehow presentable, and put up with the appearance of more and more scratches.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

Apps take a long time to load and are useless. After 7 months with the Apple Watch, I still don't understand why they make apps for them. Take, for example, branded applications of Sberbank and MTS. They load so slowly that it will probably be faster to call the hotline to find out the balance on the card or the rest of the packages on the tariff. And so with most of the programs, which, in fact, are made in order to simply be. The only exceptions are built-in applications (they are just well thought out) and several third-party ones like Stocard, Shazam and Yandex.Translate, and they do not start up instantly.

Straps and their prices. No matter what anyone says about a standard silicone strap and its hypoallergenicity, everything is individual. For example, I get irritated by it, so I had to look towards alternatives. I was surprised to find that the original Milanese loop costs 12,000 rubles. Too much, I thought about the price of half the cost of the watch, and bought a fake one. Everything in it is good, only the magnet is weak, you have to correct it every now and then. If you had a positive experience of buying a non-original Milanese hinge with a good magnet, please share it in the comments.

Calculation of training indicators. And now let's digress a little from everyday life and talk about the other side of using the Apple Watch, since it is also a sports device. The only sport I do regularly is swimming. Naturally, immediately after buying the watch, I began to go to the pool with them and try the related features of this gadget. But even here the clock upset me, since the calculation of the distance works correctly only every other time. Either one track will not be counted, then on the contrary, the extra one will attribute, so rely completely on them in this path is impossible – you have to count in your mind when the cherished kilometer will be sailed. Empirically, we managed to find out that the distance is calculated by the movements of the hands, which means that exercises when only the legs work are not taken into account. I don’t know about other types of training, but swimming is such a disaster.

Things you still like about them

I've told you about the annoying factors, it's time to talk about the positive ones, because, despite all the claims, something still smooths out my experience using the Apple Watch. So.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

Weather at a glance. Of all the watch faces, I chose Modular, and here I am not original: I see this on four out of five Apple Watch users. And this is the most convenient and fastest way to find out the weather for the day before leaving the house. Just looked at the clock and in a second we know how to dress. The dial shows both the current temperature and the range for the day, as well as information about precipitation or its absence. On the iPhone, the device must first be unlocked, then go to the Weather application, and then scroll the forecast from left to right – it takes 10 seconds, which is 10 times slower than viewing the weather on the watch.

Stealth alarm. I sleep in the same bedroom with my wife and two small children, and I get up much earlier than them. Before the advent of the Apple Watch, I had to put my smartphone with an alarm clock under my pillow, but even in the “only vibration” mode, either my children or my wife woke up with me. Now I set an alarm clock on my watch and sleep right in it. The alarm clock on the watch works autonomously from the smartphone, and this is a big plus.

Music control. The watch helps to control music in two cases: when I listen to it through Airpods, the control options of which are rather poor, and when I drive (music is played from a smartphone via Bluetooth-AUX- receiver, so you can’t switch tracks with regular buttons). I've even seen some drivers attach their Apple Watch directly to the steering wheel, although I haven't tried it myself. So in the case of music, the second display on the wrist is very useful.

Apple Pay. Paying in stores for hours is extremely convenient – you don’t have to go anywhere and don’t have to get anything. Although with the advent of cold weather it has become easier to get a smartphone out of your pocket than to find a watch under a layer of winter clothes. But no one bothers to alternate these two methods, depending on what is more convenient at a particular moment.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

Flashlight. Among the icons in the control center of the watch is a flashlight, and I use it regularly. It works according to the simplest principle: the display turns on solid white, and the backlight is turned to the maximum. This is quite enough to navigate in complete darkness, besides, both hands remain free, unlike using a flashlight on a smartphone. Convenient.

Conclusions

As you can see, annoying factors look much more serious than positive ones, but due to the presence of the latter, I have not yet got rid of smartwatches. The next time I'm going to put them on the bulletin board, I remember that an analog clock will only show the time and, possibly, the date, but after all, there are additional advantages, albeit not too significant.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

I also want to conclude by saying that my experience may not be the most revealing. Your usage pattern for your Apple Watch or other smartwatch may be much more than that. And it's good when some device will be more useful for you than for others.

Share your thoughts in the comments, it will be interesting to read about your experience with smartwatches.

You have to wipe them 2-3 times a day to make the watch look at least somehow presentable, and put up with the appearance of more and more scratches.

Apps take a long time to load and are useless. After 7 months with the Apple Watch, I still don't understand why they make apps for them. Take, for example, branded applications of Sberbank and MTS. They load so slowly that it will probably be faster to call the hotline to find out the balance on the card or the rest of the packages on the tariff. And so with most of the programs, which, in fact, are made in order to simply be. The only exceptions are built-in applications (they are just well thought out) and several third-party ones like Stocard, Shazam and Yandex.Translate, and they do not start up instantly.

Straps and their prices. No matter what anyone says about a standard silicone strap and its hypoallergenicity, everything is individual. For example, I get irritated by it, so I had to look towards alternatives. I was surprised to find that the original Milanese loop costs 12,000 rubles. Too much, I thought about the price of half the cost of the watch, and bought a fake one. Everything in it is good, only the magnet is weak, you have to correct it every now and then. If you had a positive experience of buying a non-original Milanese hinge with a good magnet, please share it in the comments.

Calculation of training indicators. And now let's digress a little from everyday life and talk about the other side of using the Apple Watch, since it is also a sports device. The only sport I do regularly is swimming. Naturally, immediately after buying the watch, I began to go to the pool with them and try the related features of this gadget. But even here the clock upset me, since the calculation of the distance works correctly only every other time. Either one track will not be counted, then on the contrary, the extra one will attribute, so rely completely on them in this path is impossible – you have to count in your mind when the cherished kilometer will be sailed. Empirically, we managed to find out that the distance is calculated by the movements of the hands, which means that exercises when only the legs work are not taken into account. I don’t know about other types of training, but swimming is such a disaster.

What do you like about them

I've told you about the annoying factors, it's time to talk about the positive ones, because, despite all the complaints, something still smooths out my experience using the Apple Watch. So.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

Weather at a glance. Of all the watch faces, I chose Modular, and here I am not original: I see this on four out of five Apple Watch users. And this is the most convenient and fastest way to find out the weather for the day before leaving the house. Just looked at the clock and in a second we know how to dress. The dial shows both the current temperature and the range for the day, as well as information about precipitation or lack thereof. On the iPhone, the device must first be unlocked, then go to the Weather application, and then scroll the forecast from left to right – it takes 10 seconds, which is 10 times slower than viewing the weather on the watch.

Stealth alarm. I sleep in the same bedroom with my wife and two small children, and I get up much earlier than them. Before the advent of the Apple Watch, I had to put my smartphone with an alarm clock under my pillow, but even in the “only vibration” mode, either my children or my wife woke up with me. Now I set the alarm clock on my watch and sleep right in it. The alarm clock on the watch works autonomously from the smartphone, and this is a big plus.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

Music control. The watch helps to control music in two cases: when I listen to it through Airpods, the control options of which are rather poor, and when I drive (music is played from a smartphone via Bluetooth-AUX- receiver, so you can’t switch tracks with regular buttons). I've even seen some drivers attach their Apple Watch directly to the steering wheel, although I haven't tried it myself. So in the case of music, the second display on the wrist is very useful.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

Apple Pay. Paying in stores for hours is extremely convenient – you don’t have to go anywhere and don’t have to get anything. Although with the advent of cold weather it has become easier to get a smartphone out of your pocket than to find a watch under a layer of winter clothes. But no one bothers to alternate these two methods, depending on what is more convenient at a particular moment.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

Flashlight. Among the icons in the control center of the watch is a flashlight, and I use it regularly. It works according to the simplest principle: the display turns on solid white, and the backlight is turned to the maximum. This is quite enough to navigate in complete darkness, besides, both hands remain free, unlike using a flashlight on a smartphone. Convenient.

Conclusions

As you can see, annoying factors look much more serious than positive ones, but due to the presence of the latter, I have not yet got rid of smartwatches. The next time I'm going to put them on the bulletin board, I remember that an analog clock will only show the time and, possibly, the date, but after all, there are additional advantages, albeit not too significant.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

I also want to conclude by saying that my experience may not be the most revealing. Your usage pattern for your Apple Watch or other smartwatch may be much more than that. And it's good when some device will be more useful for you than for others.

Share your thoughts in the comments, it will be interesting to read about your experience with smartwatches.

Smart watches are useless, but I bought them anyway

In this article there will be several reasons why smartwatches could not become my favorite gadget, although a few use cases were found.

Today, on the day I write this text, the Apple Watch Series 3 on my arm is exactly 7 months old. During this time, I have not found any serious use in them, and if something happens to them, then I will not worry a bit. And I'm not likely to buy a device like this again. In this material, there will be several reasons why smart watches could not become my favorite gadget, although a few use cases were still found.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

Purchase history

I'm just sure that in the comments under this text someone will write something like “these apple people are snickering, buying everything, even unnecessary, because it's Apple”, so I'll start with the history of buying this gadget.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

I got my first experience with smartwatches in 2013, and it was the first generation of Sony SmartWatch. In fact, it was a buggy thing with a not very responsive screen, which still needed to get used to: the fact is that activating the screen with a movement of the wrist worked only when the watch was at a certain and not quite familiar angle, and even with a delay of a second at one and a half. There was really no use for the watch, they worked terribly slowly, constantly buggy, and thank Sony engineers for what they did, probably the most unfortunate way in the world to connect the charger: the cable had to be placed in a special place and fixed with a clothespin on the watch case. After a couple of months, the clothespin spring weakened, and in order to charge the watch, you had to either put books on top or use an elastic band for bills.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

A month later, I spat and took them back to the store, where the defect was recognized as warranty and the money was returned to me. Thank you for this engineers. Since then, I have not even thought about buying a smartwatch, mindful of this bad experience, and have used an all-analogue watch from the Danish company Skagen, bought at some kind of sale at a good discount.

But Skagen is by no means Patek Philippe or even TAG Heuer, so something happened to them after 4 years of continuous wear. Replacing the battery did not help, and since this watch was pretty tired, I decided to look for something to replace it instead of repairing it. It was not possible to find something attractive and interesting in a budget of up to 30,000 rubles, and therefore I decided to give smart watches a chance again, thinking that they would still show the time, but maybe some of the smart chips would come in handy .

The reasons why they annoy me (and sometimes others)

Notifications. My colleagues often list the ability to receive notifications as one of the main advantages of the Apple Watch and smartwatches in general. But if you actively use your smartphone and you have more than 10 third-party applications installed, then at some point there are a lot of notifications, and you go to the settings to cut them off from half of the applications. After some time, the bowl overflows again, and you repeat the procedure. It gets boring eventually.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

It is easier with a smartphone in this regard – put it on the table and let it vibrate for itself. If someone calls, you will understand it immediately, and notifications in messengers, mail or somewhere else in 99% of cases do not require an instant response. You sit and go about your business without being distracted.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

It won't work like that with a watch: you have to look at the time somewhere, and taking them off and on every now and then is also not an option, so they hammer on the wrist without stopping. I had to master the Do Not Disturb mode, but it also has a problem: you periodically forget to turn off this mode when you are waiting for an important call or message, and this is already fraught with some problems. I had already missed urgent messages and calls from the couriers who stood at the door, and also disrupted several important meetings. Such things.

Notifications 2. There is another subtle issue with notifications that can make you uncomfortable. Just imagine: you are sitting at a meeting, talking. And it doesn’t matter if you have a business conversation or a nice conversation with a friend. When your smartphone vibrates in your pocket, it is often somehow inconvenient to get it out and be distracted from the conversation, and when you have another display right behind your wrist, it takes one second to look at the notification on it, and in your head it seems to be absolutely okay.

Smartwatches are useless, but I don't care bought

It will only seem to your interlocutor that you are constantly looking at your watch, and therefore, you are bored or you are in a hurry somewhere. I did not notice this trap until I came to a meeting with a person who also had an Apple Watch. Even I, a user of exactly the same gadget, at first subconsciously thought that a person was in a hurry somewhere, and it was time for us to wrap up, what can we say about other people.

Charging. Apple Watch needs to be charged frequently, though a little less often than a smartphone. But it’s one thing when both devices can be connected to a power outlet at night (many have already developed such a habit), and it’s quite another when you can’t leave the watch on charge at night, since it’s on them that you “start” the alarm clock. In addition, I use a sleep tracker that monitors the quality of rest (well, you need to somehow use the smart functions of the device). I had to develop another habit – leave the watch on charge in the evening before going to the shower, and then put it back on.

Stained and scratched. Apple Watches with ION-X glass (I don't know about the steel versions) are constantly getting smudged and picking up scratches.

Nixon Apollo, The Socket and cases

Dear friends, today for the umpteenth time I want to talk about Nixon products, a pair of curious headphones and some interesting cases. I like to watch how this brand develops in Russia, there are few examples of headsets, headphones, cases, watches, and clothes in the product line. Some things I can't talk about on Mobile-review, for example, because you won't describe belts, bags or jackets here. Come to my blog. And today I'm happy to share with you information about new products of the brand, as always, I observe excellent value for money, as always, I use some things myself.

Nixon The Apollo

Scope of delivery:

Let me start with the main thing, the price. In Russia, these headphones cost a little more than three thousand rubles, in my opinion, this is a very reasonable price. I will explain why this is so. I don't really like over-ear headphones, as a rule, they are either very bulky or look strange. The same applies to wireless headsets. Only one product hooked me at one time, this is the Jabra Halo, despite a number of innate disadvantages, this is a wonderful device and now can be cited as an example as a design masterpiece. Well, it sounds good too. Nixon made compact on-ear headphones, and, as is often the case with brand products, it combines not only a pleasant appearance, but also good sound quality.Although it is not necessary to wait for something "over" for this money. Headphones are hidden in a large transparent box, there is minimalism, you don’t want to throw away the packaging. Leatherette case, thank you, it will come in handy for carrying an accessory in a bag. The headphones themselves can be summed up in two words, metal and leather. Look, metal cups, interesting texture. The headband is also metal, the adjustment is very simple, The Apollo sat on my big head easily and naturally, there was still some left. Leather ear pads are very comfortable and soft. When the headband is moved to the maximum, The Apollo can even fit in a jacket pocket.

For the test, I got a model made of silver metal, there is also the same one with white ear pads, a black model, bronze, golden.

Theoretically, in nature there is a version of these headphones with two volume buttons, but even on the official website, I only came across three-button modifications. The remote control unit is small, with the iPhone 4 the multifunction button works great. In general, the buttons are comfortable, there is a microphone, the interlocutors do not complain about the quality of voice transmission, everything is in order. It's good.

As you can see, the cable is sheathed in fabric, black with splashes of white. It is not very confusing, the jumper is made of light metal, the plug is ordinary, straight. Can be used with iPhone 4 in original bumper. The length of the cable is not very long, in general, the headphones were clearly intended to be universal, you can use them with an iPad in a bag thrown over your shoulder, with a MacBook Pro at work or at home, with an iPhone in the subway, with any player or other device.

Now a few words about the sound. The sound here is muffled, listening was done with the iPhone 4. There is a lot of bass, a lot of dark energy is pumped here, but this invariably affects tracks where there is no dark energy at all. For this money, the sound quality is quite good, but nothing more – I would not compare it with expensive models. Headphones will appeal to fans of techno or some of these compositions.

This is just my opinion, though. For those who just want to buy high-quality headphones, I mean design, versatility, materials, sound will be of secondary importance, in this regard, you should not look for any frills here.

I've been using the headset myself for the second week, I don't want to give it away. However, many of you know that I appreciate metal. Interestingly, the headset does not work with the BlackBerry 9780, that is, the sound does not go to the headphones at all.

Nixon The Socket

Compact headphones for every day, the arms remember the given position, respectively, it is easy to place on your ears the way you need. There is a black model, white, gray, and the same as in the review – black with a red cable.

In Russia, they cost about 1,400 rubles, the model seemed to me not very comfortable, it rubs the auricle slightly. The sound is good, but again without any frills. In my opinion, there is a simple appearance and no outstanding features, a walk-through model, although some may like it. The packaging for an inexpensive model is rich, attractive, even as a gift. Perhaps I will recommend it only to Nixon fans, if there are any in nature.

Nixon iPhone 4 cases

But Nixon cases for iPhone 4 were a success, I don’t even have anything to say here. I tried two models, they are The MITT and The Fuller. The first is a simple “back” made of velvety plastic, it is very pleasant to feel this case, it lies well in the hand, nothing more. And it costs 1400 rubles, quite a normal price for such a model. True, in two weeks of use, the white cover was rubbed off, changed color, especially at the corners. He carried it in his pocket and did not particularly follow. As practice shows, a miracle rag dipped in miracle cologne easily turned yellowed The MITT into white and new. But, if you are disgusted by such unisex colors, then there are black, green, blue options. For girls there is red and light blue. I recommend that iPhone 4 owners pay attention to another plus of these cases – the device can be easily installed in various audio systems, there are no problems here.

The second model is more complicated, The Fuller consists of two halves, there are many colors: black, green, red, orange, purple – I got green. Velvety plastic, not bad appearance, the cover protects both the back and the front. The dimensions of the device are increasing, it can be seen, the device seems to be slightly “bloated”. On the back of the company logo, in my opinion, it is in place here. The colors are interesting, I even decided to go with a green cover, natural acid. Such a model costs 1,350 rubles, I recommend paying attention. The minus, in my opinion, is the only one, so I don’t really like the slots at the ends, in some places there is flash. But the cover is easy to disassemble, for once I meet a special notch on the side, which greatly facilitates the process.

The conclusions will be simple, I liked Nixon cases for iPhone 4 and I liked The Apollo headset, I can safely recommend these things to you and use them myself. Good luck, health and all prosperity.

Nixon Apollo, The Socket and cases

Dear friends, today for the umpteenth time I want to talk about Nixon products, a pair of curious headphones and some interesting cases. I like to watch how this brand develops in Russia, there are few examples of headsets, headphones, cases, watches, and clothes in the product line. Some things I can't talk about on Mobile-review, for example, because you won't describe belts, bags or jackets here. Come to my blog. And today I'm happy to share with you information about new products of the brand, as always, I observe excellent value for money, as always, I use some things myself.

Nixon The Apollo

Scope of delivery:

Let me start with the main thing, the price. In Russia, these headphones cost a little more than three thousand rubles, in my opinion, this is a very reasonable price. I will explain why this is so. I don't really like over-ear headphones, as a rule, they are either very bulky or look strange. The same applies to wireless headsets. Only one product hooked me at one time, this is the Jabra Halo, despite a number of innate disadvantages, this is a wonderful device and now can be cited as an example as a design masterpiece. Well, it sounds good too. Nixon made compact on-ear headphones, and, as is often the case with brand products, it combines not only a pleasant appearance, but also good sound quality.Although it is not necessary to wait for something "over" for this money. Headphones are hidden in a large transparent box, there is minimalism, you don’t want to throw away the packaging. Leatherette case, thank you, it will come in handy for carrying an accessory in a bag. The headphones themselves can be summed up in two words, metal and leather. Look, metal cups, interesting texture. The headband is also metal, the adjustment is very simple, The Apollo sat on my big head easily and naturally, there was still some left. Leather ear pads are very comfortable and soft. When the headband is moved to the maximum, The Apollo can even fit in a jacket pocket.

For the test, I got a model made of silver metal, there is also the same one with white ear pads, a black model, bronze, golden.

Theoretically, in nature there is a version of these headphones with two volume buttons, but even on the official website, I only came across three-button modifications. The remote control unit is small, with the iPhone 4 the multifunction button works great. In general, the buttons are comfortable, there is a microphone, the interlocutors do not complain about the quality of voice transmission, everything is in order. It's good.

As you can see, the cable is sheathed in fabric, black with splashes of white. It is not very confusing, the jumper is made of light metal, the plug is ordinary, straight. Can be used with iPhone 4 enclosed in original bumper. The length of the cable is not very long, in general, the headphones were clearly intended to be universal, you can use them with an iPad in a bag thrown over your shoulder, with a MacBook Pro at work or at home, with an iPhone in the subway, with any player or other device.

Now a few words about the sound. The sound here is muffled, listening was done with the iPhone 4. There is a lot of bass, a lot of dark energy is pumped here, but this invariably affects tracks where there is no dark energy at all. For this money, the sound quality is quite good, but nothing more – I would not compare it with expensive models. Headphones will appeal to fans of techno or some of these compositions.

This is just my opinion, though. For those who just want to buy high-quality headphones, I mean design, versatility, materials, sound will be of secondary importance, in this regard, you should not look for any frills here.

I've been using the headset myself for the second week, I don't want to give it away. However, many of you know that I appreciate metal. Interestingly, the headset does not work with the BlackBerry 9780, that is, the sound does not go to the headphones at all.
