Great review of the Lumia 1520 by tnkgrl
So after a few days of having the Fitbit I have to say I really like it. It works great and you forget that it is on your wrist until it vibrates to tell you something.
The setup is so simple and easy all you need to do is download the app and launch it and it will find your Fitbit just make sure you have a lest three dots of charge and then you walk threw the goals of steps, weight loss, and such.
The software is great and cross platform works on both Android and iOS and their is even third party apps for Windows Phone 8. But if you want to use it with your phone you need to have Bluetooth 4 low energy so that the Fitbit can sync to it. Also their is a USB dongle for your computer if you want to go that root instead of the phone and their are apps for your computer. The software gives you so much good information like your step count (default of 10 000) and your calories intake and outtake and your wait goals and sleep.
You do have to manually enter in the food you eat and the water you drink as well as tell it when you are going to sleep. The food database is from the US which is okay but you will be missing Canadian only things like (President Choice stuff).
Their is even a social thing to it that has leaderboards and such so if you have friends or family you can compete against one another which is great.
So I have been playing the beta for Heathstone for about 2 months now I have to say that I really love it. It is so easy to get into and getting playing against AI or real players. Each hero also has different hero abilities and class cards that are specific to them then there are neutral cards.
If you want to unlock all the heroes and basic class cards you have to play them to level 10. The game has three modes Ranked, Unranked and Arena. Ranked goes from 25 to 1 with 3 or more starts per rank as well and this mode puts you against real players. Unranked is again against real players but is for fun. And Arena is a draft where you pick from the 3 heroes they give you and then chose from 30 cards and you play up to 12 wins or 3 loses then your done.
My favourite mode is Ranked where you get to choose from 9 decks that you can put together from the heroes that they give you. As well as you can go threw the daily quests that they give you which earns you gold which you can use to buy new boosters or arena runs and the cards you already have can be turned to dust which can be used to make cards that you don’t have.
