Logitech K480- My thoughts

I believe it is never too late to share my thoughts on an item that has been on the market for quite a while now, the Logitech K480 wireless, Bluetooth keyboard. Ever since I heard about it launching, I had always wanted to lay my hands on it. The thought of being able to control your personal laptop (why would you need another?), and also being able to reply your phone messages with just this (did you know you could control up to 3 different devices with just this beauty?) Astonishing! Mind you, this idea was brilliant before WhatsApp came onto the computer, being able to reply my phone messages without having to touch my phone keyboard was indeed a great idea.

It was actually the price that didn’t really seem to fit well with me. Forking out about 50 dollars, well, made me think twice if I wanted to spend that amount of money on a device. I did mention it to my wife a few times, but she said it wasn’t a need (she was right!) until recently…

We bought a used laptop just for simple school work from someone on Carousell and in a few months, the keyboard decided to lose sensitivity (some nuts and bolts) thus, some of the keyboard buttons could not be used. Then came the idea of buying a wireless keyboard and my wife gave me the task of getting one for her (so why not?) Where else to search for it but (let’s say it together) Carousell! (No, I am not being paid for advertising) but, the price of this beauty didn’t really come down at all. I managed to get it for SGD$30 from someone and it works like a beauty.

The connectivity is simple, just switch it on, and press the button required of you whether you are using android/ windows/ chrome OS or iOS/ Mac OS. Smart move on the versatility of both systems. You can connect to your tablets, laptops and phones (isn’t that like everything already?) Up to 3 devices (I mean come on, would you need more that 3?)

The buttons of the keyboard are clicky and responsive, though they do make some noise (like em ol keyboards, so quiet typing is just not really possible) I wonder, how it would work out in the library… Of course, the cafĂ© (lots of people study there) and other outdoor locations makes this device a really useful tech to carry around.

It’s not that heavy, just a little more that 800grams and even has a top of the line green holder for your devices like your phones and tablets. Can you imagine your phone in an upright position sitting right in front of you? Smart right?

So, if you are thinking of multitasking, using 3 devices all at once ( I probably can do up to 2 at once) and have been sitting on the fence, do give this product a shot. It’s pretty fun being able to multitask without having to pick up your phone and all that. Saves you time in a way.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you own one yourself? What are the pros and cons from your experience? I’d love to hear from you!

Enjoy!

Day 22

Yes. I still carry on despite 2 weeks of holiday and slipping up.  And yes the goal still stands, 70kg at the end of 6 months. 

This morning a short, simple walk for 30mins. Gonna stay away from fried foods, gassy drinks and processed food as much as possible.  

Ps: I believe I’m back to 95kg again… I guess my issue is to be consistent.  I just can’t for some reason. 

Tips anyone?

Would definitely appreciate prayers as well. 

God bless!

Off the radar for 1 week, now I’m back.

I was on vacation in Seoul, Korea for 1 week and have not been updating but the challenge still goes on. Even though I ate almost everything, I also walked and carried the stroller a lot. Korea was fun and interesting. Lots of staircases, not that many elevators.

After coming back, I immediately weighed myself. I did gain 2 kg during this time. So I glad I didn’t gain more than 3kg. So I’m back to 94kg. Will be resuming exercise, eating right and sleeping early tomorrow onwards.

Day 7

Even though I’m not in town, my exercise does not stop at all. Carrying luggages, a stroller and 2 big bags are considered weight lifting and not lifting it was. 

Food wise is a lil outta control coz of the local flavours but hey gotta get back soon and work it out till my goal weight! 

Honeymoons are fun with my wife.  With the addition of our lil prince, it spices up life in a whole new level. Trust me, my boy is active and I’m glad he is. Until we both tire out haha… 

Huge shout out to my love, my life, my beautiful wife who is really strong both in her mind and her heart. She can do so much more than even I cannot. God bless her so much it overflows. I pray I can bless her too during this short honeymoon. Muakz!

Day 6

Cheat day haha. Something I was looking forward to. Had some fried food for lunch.  I figured my body needed some rest and therefore didn’t go for my morning exercise.  Instead, I rested a bit more. 

Good news is that my wife said I look slimmer! What an awesome comment coming from the love of my life! 

Even better news! I started this challenge with 95kg. Today I weighed myself and it was *drumroll*

92kg!

Yes I lost 3kg within these 5 days of staying away from fried food and daily morning exercises (not even running. It’s was just light jogging and brisk walking)

I’m excited to see what lies ahead! 

Aren’t you?

Day 5

Funny how it’s the end of the working week and Friday is always the hardest to get outta bed… but I did so pay myself on the back! 

I took the advice of a runner friend to speed walk first and not jog and true enough, feet are fine with almost no pain. 

Strange thing is Strava picked up the mileage better than my previous days haha! Oh well!

Day 4

The pain oh the pain on my archiles tendons really hurt. Need to stretch…. being heavy is really not fun at all. Can’t find clothes that have your size. Boo…. 

So I tried out 2 other apps today and I think it’s something wrong with me coz I’m very sure I jogged at least 4 rounds around the track.  Each round should be about 400m should that not add up to about 1.6km? Or I’m wrong in calculating here. Or is it the GPS that’s not picking up coz there are a lotta trees here.  I really dunno.  Or is it because I brisk walk in between ? 

What do you all think?
