Gnome Workshop Bluetooth Selfie Stick [Product Review]


Who doesn’t wanna take some great selfies? Sometimes your arm just isn’t long enough. Then there is that’s issue of having to set the timer on your smartphone. What if not everyone is ready? Then your might have to go through the entire process again. I found that with the Gnome Workshop Bluetooth Selfie Stick I don’t have to any of that, if I don’t want to.

What I DID NOT like about the Gnome Workshop Bluetooth Selfie Stick

  • Can be frustrating to turn ON & OFF when holding the button (for about 3-5 seconds) Shutting off the Selfie Stick is easier when the Bluetooth on smartphone is turned off first. The blue light will be off when the stick is off.
  • List price is $25 BUT it’s $12.99 on Amazon.
  • Difficult shutting it off when the blue light keeps blinking, searching for connection, if there is not Bluetooth connection not on.
  • When connected to Bluetooth and selfie stick, texting ability is gone. You can take a selfie using the stick and send it a person but you are not able to text them unless you disconnect from the Bluetooth setting & stick.

It must be charged once you take it out of the box. There are easy to read instructions. Very basic and only in English.

You turn it on by holding down the “shutter” button for about 3-5 seconds and the blue light turns on. I turned on my Bluetooth setting on before turning on the selfie stick. Once you connect it there will be “GnomeSelfie” listed. You can click that for the next time you use it.

There are two cards included in the box. One for 10% for next Gnome Workshop order and the other card is to join the Gnome Workshop VIP list.

I enjoyed playing around with this, testing it out. I even recorded a short video using it. I also played around with using it for my shoe pictures. It works pretty good taking photos while I’m standing up and taking the heel shot. I also took a short video of myself walking around in my heels, which I really like so I don’t have to wait for someone else to take the video for me. I can now do it myself with the help of this easy to use Gnome Workshop Foldable Bluetooth Selfie Stick.

Easy@Home Digital Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor [Review]

I have been shopping for a convenient (at home) blood pressure monitor. I don’t like having to monitor my blood pressure in public. I decided to review this Easy@Home Digital Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor.

I wanted to compare the Easy@Home Digital Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor to the one the general public use at their local drug store. A person with a “normal” blood pressure average (120/80) used both for me. I recorded my blood pressure which runs 120/80 through 130/90. I’m taking medication for it.  It’s important to me to find an accurate & convenient monitor.

(Below are photos that were taken at the local CVS blood pressure machine. The top left/bottom left are the high blood pressure individual. The top right/bottom right is the “normal” blood pressure reading).

What I did not like about Easy@Home Digital Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor

  • I’m not sure how truly accurate it really is. I went to the local CVS to use & compare their blood pressure machine to the Easy@Home Digital Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor. According to my photos that I took for comparison, there is a bit of a difference in pressure.
  • That the monitor must be at heart level when using it. However I did take my blood pressure while my arm was resting on the desk, then right away with my arm up towards my heart. There was only a two point difference.

 

What I did like about Easy@Home Digital Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor

  • The easy to read and follow instructions for this monitor.
  • The size and convenience of the monitor. It fits in my purse which makes it easy to take to my doctor’s checkups.
  • Easy fit on the wrist, comfortable. Once you push the “on” button it starts reading the blood pressure. It records the reading afterwards. You can separate the recordings into three main groups (and more if needed) but there are three group listed on the face of the monitor itself.
  • The monitor will indicate if the reading is “Norm” or “PreH” by an arrow on the face of the monitor.
  • The easy recall of the memory of the readings. All you have to do is push the “mem” button and it turns on and reads the most recent reading. If there are more than a few readings the monitor will show the average reading out of those in the memory bank.
  • It shuts itself off after a minute of not using it.
  • The monitor comes with it’s own carrying case.
  • Two AAA Batteries are included.
  • There are several pieces of useful and helpful information listed in different sections of the instruction pamphlet.

I have seen different prices for wrist blood pressure monitors from $15 up to $50. This Easy@Home Digital Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor is $30.

I suggest getting familiar with your blood pressure average before you start using this product. You could ask your doctor for assistance. Get a read while at your doctor’s exam then use the Easy@Home Digital Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor so that you have an idea of how accurate it is or is not. Personally I don’t think a few numbers difference is a huge deal, but if the reads are 10 numbers off I think that would be a problem.
