@HuaweiZA Releases #HUAWEIWATCHGT2 Powerful and Upgraded Fitness Experience

Hi  Friends, 

Huawei has unveiled its next-generation smartwatch, HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 46mm and 42mm series, powered by the firm’s proprietary Kirin A1 chip. Delivering an upgraded user experience and unrivaled battery life due to the chip’s ultra-low power consumption capability, WATCH GT 2 pushes the boundaries of what is expected from a wearable. The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 is also Huawei’s first smartwatch with an all-in-one 3D glass screen, creating a wider, boundless display. Moreover, the new smartwatch delivers more sports modes with richer programs, as well as adding Bluetooth calling and music playback functionalities, enhancing comprehensive health and fitness monitoring and management capabilities, ultimately offering greater care in meticulous detail to those who love sport and the pursuit of quality of life.

Proprietary Kirin A1 chipset supports unrivaled battery life
The previous generation HUAWEI WATCH GT was well-loved by users because of its impressive battery life. HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 goes in further, being equipped with Huawei’s proprietary Kirin A1 chipset to further improve on battery life. The Kirin A1 chipset integrates an advanced Bluetooth processing unit, a powerful audio processing unit, an ultra-low power consumption application processor and a separate power management unit. The application processor uses the Cortex-M7 processor to achieve ultra-low power consumption of 10uA/MHz, which is far below the industry average of 30uA/MHZ. The perfect combination of high performance and efficient power consumption makes it possible for HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 to deliver robust usage and even longer battery life.

In daily use, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 46mm series can operate continuously for up to two weeks, with both the intelligent heart rate monitor and call notification functions on and weekly usage of up to 30 minutes of Bluetooth calls; up to 30 minutes of music playback; up to 90 minutes of exercise and using the scientific sleep mode at night. In the classic mode, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 42mm series can operate continuously for up to one week. Both series of watches have greatly improved battery life in the GPS tracked sports mode. The 46mm series achieves a battery life of 30 hours under the GPS tracked sports mode, while the 42mm series reaches 15 hours.*
@HuaweiZA Releases #HUAWEIWATCHGT2 Powerful and Upgraded Fitness Experience
All-in-one 3D glass design for expansive display experience
Classic design never goes out of style. Inheriting the classic look from the previous generation, HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 further upgraded the aesthetics with a full-screen and borderless design. The all-in-one 3D glass surface allows for a wider look and feel. The dial of the 46mm series adopts beveled sculpting and gemstone processing techniques to create 3D curved glass and applies individual carving to create concave spots on the dial for a more vivid look. Treated with multiple processes, the curved dial of the 42mm series is only 9.4mm thin and decorated with an extremely thin, fashionable metal frame.

The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 46mm series is also equipped with a 1.39-inch AMOLED HD precision touch screen with a display resolution of 454 x 454 pixels, wider color gamut, and an ultra-thin design that is superior to LCD screens, achieving fuller screen color and higher contrast. The screen design is modern and artistic, suitable for people who pursue the finer things in life and speaks to the simple, exquisite design philosophy that is in vogue nowadays.

New professional sports monitoring creates a richer smartwatch experience
Sports enthusiasts ask for professional sports data monitoring and all-around experience from their smartwatches. The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 46mm series connects with Huawei mobile phone Bluetooth and supports Bluetooth calls at up to 150 meters. The watch also supports phonebook functionality so you can save friends’ contact information on your watch and easily look them up. At the same time, the watch comes with large storage capacity, housing up to 500 mp3 songs. You can easily manage and enjoy music while exercising.

In the sports mode, HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 is compatible with 15 sports, including eight outdoor sports (running, walking, climbing, hiking, trail running, cycling, open water, triathlon) and seven indoor sports (walking, running, cycling, swimming pool, free training, elliptical machine, rowing machine). For these 15 sports modes, the watch provides full-scale monitoring of approximately 190 types of data. The watch provides targeted pre-exercise data analysis for different sports, data recording analysis during the exercise and professional advice afterward. It is like having a personal intelligent sports coach to make your exercise safer and better.

Comprehensive health management for your everyday care
In the field of intelligent wearables, Huawei is committed to helping consumers better manage their own health. Leveraging advanced intelligent algorithms, Huawei is an industry leader in health management.

In terms of heart rate monitoring, HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 helps monitor bradycardia and heart failure. Unless in the sports mode, the user will be notified if the heart rate is above 100 bpm or below 50 bpm for more than 10 minutes. Users can also view the data in the Huawei Sports and Health App to keep an eye on your health in real-time.

In addition to heart rate monitoring, sleep monitoring is another function that users care about. Poor quality sleep has become a problem for many. HUAWEI TruSleep™ 2.0 monitors sleep quality, real-time heart rate, sleep breathing quality and uses big data analysis to rate sleep quality. It combines Huawei AI technology to accurately analyze sleep problems and provides sleep improvement suggestions, as well as personalized sleep services and reports to help users improve sleep quality.

HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 also comes with self-developed HUAWEI TruRelax™ technology, which helps users relieve stress by recording HRV (heart rate variability) values and providing feedback on the user's stress index. In addition, it also has a sedentary alert, which reminds the user to stand up and move around after a certain period of time. On special occasions, the alert can be turned off. You can also record the number of steps you take each day, calories burned, and the number of times you stand up. HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 provides consumers with all-day physical status information to help them develop healthy living habits and lifestyles.

#TheLifesWayReviews - #Technology in #Shuffle Mode Play in MP3 Players

Hi Friends,

I am been a fan of music and due to which I am a huge collector of earphones and headphones along with various types of MP3 players and devices. I have all the devices or used to have all the devices from Sony Walkman to Sony MP3 CD players to the latest Apple iPod Shuffles and Nano to even some dodgy local ones from cheaper brands. I am an ardent fan of loading my music - my favorite set of songs into all the devices everywhere - be it in car or smartphone or iPad or laptop. 
#TheLifesWayReviews - Technology in #Shuffle Mode Play in MP3 Players #TheLifesWay
The problem I faced with all these devices or the mp3 players is the SHUFFLE mode which is totally outdated even when the new software and technology is still upgraded all the time. No matter which device I use the SHUFFLE mode works in the same patterns, making the same songs appear even when you have 16GB full of songs in different folders. This has troubled me so much that I switched off SHUFFLE play and went on to the Normal play which was much better than the same. 

Do you feel the same pain as I am? or Are you using any player which can take you to all the 1000+ songs before repeating the same one or the pattern? Do let me know in comments below.

What Will You Order For Your Weird Craving? @Uber_RSA #UberEatsSA

Hi Friends, 

There’s nothing more satisfying than placing a food delivery order and having it arrive exactly as imagined - whether that means having your avo on the side or your drink with no ice. Uber Eats has released their first-ever Cravings Report which breaks down some of South Africa’s most unique delivery requests, some of the most unusual combinations and the wackiest comments made via the Uber Eats app from the last year. 

Let’s leave this off
It should be no surprise that tomato was the most requested food item to be left of any meal, with a total of over 200 000 orders placed over the last year that asked for the red vegetable to be left off. That's about 3 300 tomatoes saved from being picked off and wasted. Sauces finished off in second place, with mayonnaise being voted the least favourite since it was the most requested condiment to be left off. Rounding off the list was garnish items like lettuce and onion being removed from burgers to noodles. 

Local is lekker 
South Africans are known to be proud, and some restaurants had to adapt menu items to feed the cravings of locals. With at least 1 000 meals swapping out traditional starch for delicious pap. The local staple is loved so much, that many Eaters are willing to pay an additional restaurant fee to have it delivered with their meal. 

Chakalaka and achaar were also commonly used to replace chilli relish or BBQ sauce. It seems that the spicier the food the better it is for locals, who have on plenty of occasions stated that they prefer hot to extra hot when selecting the flaming flavour. South African flavours are a must and included with some local favourites including Kotas and vetkoek. Unorthodox but truly South African, is that some orders request that a tomato base be replaced with a chakalaka base on pizzas. 
What Will You Order For Your Weird Craving? @Uber_RSA #UberEatsSA
Emotional eaters because why not? 
South Africans are known to love food, but almost any scenario and its accompanying emotion can be celebrated or comforted via an order on the app. Exam periods and test weeks leave students with high stress levels, that can best be counteracted with slap chips. Other emotionally-charging occasions including, graduations, Valentine’s Day and Premier League Weekends, were also when the app experienced an influx in orders. 

No Barks, No Bites 
It’s a well known South African proverb that many are all too familiar with. At least 200 orders specifically stated that their dog does in fact not bite, and the delivery-partner is welcome to come into the yard. 

For any fear experienced by the barking dogs, it was easily made up because South Africans are nothing if not giving and kind. Many requests were received asking the restaurant to give parts of their order like chips, coffee and rolls to the delivery-partner when the order is picked up, so that they may enjoy it while still warm. 

As the cravings report continues to be unravelled and more weird wallops and crazy cravings are discovered, one thing is for sure, South Africans are as loving as they are unique and while some orders raise eyebrows, other requests warm hearts. 

About Uber Eats:
Uber Eats allows people to search for and discover local restaurants, order a meal at the touch of a button, and have it delivered reliably and quickly. Since launching the Eats app three and a half years ago, the business has leveraged Uber’s technology and logistics expertise to serve 500+ cities globally, all while keeping average delivery time under 30 minutes. In South Africa, Uber Eats is currently in over nine cities across South Africa (Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Paarl, Pietermaritzburg, Bloemfontein, Port Elizabeth and Soweto).

A Memoir - This Month Last Year - Sep 2018 #TheLifesWay #PhotoYatra #1800thPost

Hi Friends, 

September is the start of the Spring season in Johannesburg, South Africa and it's the best season with pleasant weather and greenery all around. It's my 1800th post which I always wanted to cross since a long time and finally, it's happening today on 12th Sep 2019. 2019 has been a wonderful year so far and I am totally in love with myself and in 2018 - I had too much to work with those brands which didn't give me anything back for all my hard work and efforts. This year my decision to do only those brands which values me back is going ok, no so good as I wanted but I am happy with this decision as I continue to hold the same. 

1. The Importance of Hygiene for your Mobile Device with #Whoosh! @Gammatek - -  I have been using the product since it's launch and the way this thing cleans your phone is amazing. All the marks and dust just gets wiped off and the phone is again in mint condition literally. 

2. Get Ready for SA’s First AI Four Camera Smartphone @HuaweiZA #HuaweiMate20lite - - I won this phone at the Huawei P30 launch event and my wife started using the same but soon she didn't like the camera that much as compared to mine P20 so switched the same for mines. I gave this phone to my daughter who was struggling with my old HTC One M7 which was my 3rd HTC smartphone since Google G1. A cheap smartphone will remain cheap unless you are using the top version of the available model and I don't like using value for money smartphones. These smartphones are not my cup of tea. 
A Memoir - This Month Last Year - Sep 2018 #TheLifesWay #PhotoYatra #1800thPost
Aashish Rai with Reyansh at Walter Sisulu Botanical Garden, Johannesburg, South Africa
3. @Gammatek Puts Fun back into Collecting with Funko! #ComicConAfrica #rAgeExpo2018 - - Funko toys are gaining the ground just like fidget spinner was available with each and every kid on the planet two years back. Even companies were giving Funko Pops away as a part of launch events, online contests and everywhere you go, you will find Funko stalls. I have got 2 Funko pops and 2 Funko keyrings with me in my collection. 

4. Off The Shelf And On Trend @SamsungSA #QLEDTV #2018QLEDtv - - I love my old 2015 Samsung UHD TV since today so thinking of how great will be the QLED TV is beyond my imagination. I have not seen the actuals as I have stopped going to the electronics retail stores as I am going towards minimalism. Thanks to Samsung for bringing the latest tech to the market all the time. 

5. @CanonRSA Revolutionises The Future of Photography and Filmmaking #EOSR #Liveforthestory - - Canon launched their revolutionary product EOS R camera and I heard the new one is also in the making and soon will be launched to the world. I have not used this camera ever but I do love my Canon 77D camera and share all my shots with the world on my Instagram channels. 

I have been a little bit lazy in posting on my social media channels but now I have decided that I will do what I love most and passionate about. Whatever anyone else has to say can say and I won't be bothered by anyone? They were not there during my struggles and wins, how can they tell me what to do when I never asked for their opinions and judgments.

#TheLifesWayReviews - The Spy @NetflixSA Mini-TV Series #Thriller #TrueEvents #TheSpy

Hi Friends, 

Netflix launched The Spy on 6th Sep 2019 based on the actual story of Israel's Eli Cohen who went to Syria during 1960 turmoils and passed on the sensitive military information from the country where he knew no one. It's a 6 episode series which showcases Eli's personal and espionage journey in a country unknown to him. The character is played by Sacha Baron Cohen and what a performance in this thriller drama from Netflix once again. He really came out on the top in all kinds of scenes from comedy to action. He really showed Eli's struggle inside his heart and mind and courage to do something great for his country.

I binged the series and completed the same in a single sitting and the tv series totally kept me on the edge of my seats. Though the end will be known to the world as Eli got caught in his last trip and was publically hanged in Syria. Since today his remains are not yet returned to Israel despite several efforts by his family, wife, and government.
#TheLifesWayReviews - The Spy @NetflixSA Mini-TV Series #Thriller #RealLife #TheSpy
The Spy is written and directed by Gideon Raff and Max Perry. Sacha himself produced the series with Raff. The mini-tv series gives an insight into the life of Mossad Spy who ventured into a country and sacrificed his life for the same. The series shows how he made contacts with the biggest military chiefs, political leaders, influencers to make inroads into getting information for his country. He really climbed up the ladder from a normal clerk to a rich influential businessman Kamel and stayed focused on his goal to send information back home. He was not only street smart but the best in his trade until he got caught. Israel treats him as a great hero because they won several wars because of his provided information. 

This Netflix TV series will keep you glued to your mobile or TV screen with each episode around 47-62 min totaling 319 minutes of entertainment waiting for you this weekend. Nadia Eli's wife role is played by Hadar Ratzon-Rotem and Noah Emmerich as Dan Peleg who recruited him as a spy to go to Syria. It's a span of 4 years in 6 episodes but really inspirational as to what an agent does for his country.

#TheLionKing Roars Past R106m at South African Box Office @DisneyLionKing #DisneyAfrica

Hi Friends, 

This past weekend (30 Aug-1 Sep 2019), after 7 weeks at the top of the South African Box Office and over 1.2 million attendances, Disney’s The Lion King passed R106 million, becoming the third film in history to do so.

With over R106m in local box office takings, the all-new film joins the R100m club that already features last year’s Black Panther and this year’s Avengers: Endgame, both from Marvel Studios. Together with 2018’s Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War, Walt Disney Studios releases now account for the top 4 films of all time at the South African Box Office.

Directed by Jon Favreau, and Utilizing pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way, Disney’s The Lion King boasts an all-star cast that includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, Billy Eichner as Timon and South Africa’s own Dr. John Kani as Rafiki. Local music legend Lebo M features on the breath-taking soundtrack as does Pharrell Williams, Elton John, Tim Rice, and the cast.
#TheLionKing Roars Past R106m at South African Box Office @Disney #DisneyAfrica
“We are thrilled at the overwhelming response that South African audiences have shown The Lion King, a story grounded on the continent that celebrates so much of the creativity and beauty of what Africa has to offer,” says Christine Service, Senior Vice President of The Walt Disney Company Africa. “We are equally delighted that the stories from our studios, whether they be Disney, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios or 20th Century Fox, continue to resonate with local audiences to this extent – we look forward to sharing more upcoming releases in 2019, including Maleficent: Mistress of Evil in October as well as Frozen 2 and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker this festive season.” 

This past weekend also saw the culmination of The Lion King Screening Programme whereby The Walt Disney Company Africa, in collaboration with Hyundai Santa Fe, FNB and Attacq Foundation saw up to 10 000 high school learners from under-served communities across the country experiencing the ground-breaking new film at Ster-Kinekor Theatres. Disney’s The Lion King is currently in cinemas.

Hashtag: #TheLionKing

About the Film:
Disney’s The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau, journeys to the African savannah where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy, and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
