The smart wearables are taking the world by storm, but not all wearables are looking super classy and some might still prefer the original analog looking watches.

Guess makes it's first charge into the realm of wearables that maintains it's sleek and classy analog style. Before diving into what this stylish watch has to offer, let's take a moment to admire it's simple elegance while packing a considerable amount of modern tech into it.


The blue metallic rims gives it a very modern and elegant look, it definite looks pretty fine and stylish when I opened it up, its looks sure didn't disappoint me. Would definitely see myself wearing this to meetings and parties everywhere. Imagine those proud moments when people compliment how sleek it looks and present to them its tech side of things. :)

Let's get to the technical part of the watch, Here is a screen grab from their site on the functions that the watch offers--->

 

After spending a few days with the device, there are a few key functions that i find pretty useful

1. Notifications :- The LED strip on the watch gives a quick overview of the calls and msges I am receiving. Only addition to that would be hoping that they have Whatsapp support as well, but that can come in the form of software upgrade.

2. Camera Control:- Connecting the watch to my smartphone also allows me to take stable and remote pictures, it feels nice to be able to pose and arrange things properly before snapping the moment.

3. Music Control:- Rather than taking out my phone all the time when I am moving around, i can switch my music choices from my wrist.


The Guess Connect is available in multiple locations as stated below, Priced at RRP RM1,499


Summary
If you are looking to grab a tech infused analog designed watch. The Guess Connect offers enough functions to cater for your daily needs.

No comments :


Chinese New Year, where the spirit of celebration explodes in enthusiasm with ang pows, fireworks and heck lot of drinking and card playing.

This year, Tiger Radler introduces a special limited edition Tiger Radler Mandarin Orange. It's interesting to see Tiger releasing such a relatable product in Chinese New Year, I am sure fans of the Mandarin Orange fruit will be more than excited to give this one a try. It's low alcohol level, does make it an ideal choice for many. That's why the original Tiger Radler was so popular last year.

It's the perfect drink to add to your collection of Chinese New Year beverage!

It will be retailed from *RM69.90 (RRP) for a 24-can pack that comes with exclusive ‘ang pow’ packets for that added touch.

Belvedere Vodka lights up the night with a fantastic light performance and thirst quenching drinks

4 comments :
At the start of this post, i think i owe it to myself and the blog... an apology. I've been slacking for the most part 2014 and coming into the half of 2015. And to top it off, a huge issue with my domain. Well, the dust is just about to settle and I think I can find a bit more time to commit to the blog once again. After all, most part of my current career started with this blog. I really missed the quick blog turnarounds, the never ending movie passes and the epic parties with all the party people.

Here's to a better half of 2015 with benjaminfoo.com

To kickstart the engine properly once again, I went to the grand launch of Belvedere's beloved party series and it was refreshing and spectacular at the same time.

Belvedere kicks starts the night party series with a grand light performance that brings a glorious feast to your eyes.

The thing about Belvedere Vodka is that it is very smooth on the throat and perfect when mixed with orange or cranberry juice, it becomes a great social lubricant and it's strong after feel makes it a great party drink to be enjoyed by all.

While you can be focused on the beautiful lights and posing for the camera, many would prefer to enjoy the great atmosphere provided by Belvedere with bottles of vodka around the table. Friends get together for great laughs and some epic dance moves being shown here and there.

The event saw dazzling light stick performers forming the grand word of " Belvedere Vodka" across the spinning antics. A performance that got the crowd cheering of course. After which it was continued by the house DJ spinning a rather messy set of Hip-hop, pop, and a tinge of EDM, though it wasn't to my taste, Belvedre managed to smooth things out for me. :)

The night went on with good company and it was definitely a great night. Join more of Belvedere parties throughout the rest of 2015 and enjoy the awesome light and drinks that come along with the awesome premier Vodka.

Experience a sensational experience at Heineken Thirst 2015 with Dash Berlin, R3hab, BATE, Gold Fish & Blink and HULKAS

1 comment :
After a year of hiatus when ravers were feeling lost without the iconic end year event, Thirst announces their return with an innovative new show to delight its Malaysian fans.

Thirst, We Are All Stardust will transform the MIECC at Mines Resort City into a cosmic spectacle featuring world class light shows, pyrotechnics and acrobatic performances alongside the sounds of Dash Berlin, R3hab, Goldfish & Blink, BATE, XU and Hulkas.

I've had the chance to witness just a small preview of what the public can expect from this brand new concept from Thirst and it's was pretty damn good.


To the amazement of the crowd, a group of cosmically costumed international dancers then rose from the audience and took to the stage accompanied by hypnotic visuals and laser light shows. The crowd was immediately immersed into the universe of Thirst “We Are All Stardust” with excerpts from the full show that will be premiered for music fans on April 25.


I am rather pleased to find out that despite the smaller line-up, we have superstars Dash Berlin and R3hab headlining and with these 2 DJs on top of our local super DJs, a night of great visual and sound experience is guranteed.


PRESS RELEASE
Events like the Heineken associated global Sensation parties have transformed the international dance music festival scene. With their emphasis on high quality experiences and theatricality, they have created an appeal that reaches beyond dance music’s core audience and injected a new sense of engagement and adventure into the music.

Thirst “We Are All Stardust” is the first time such a show has been specially designed for a Malaysian audience. A multinational team of experiential experts will spend days terraforming MIECC into an other-worldly experience. Textured video screens, lasers and Special FX will create a backdrop for thematically costumed dancers and performers to bring to life the music of top DJs and producers including Dash Berlin, R3hab and Goldfish & Blink.


Future Sound Asia, the team behind the Thirst phenomenon collaborated with Callen Tham, aka themancalleduncle who added his own creative stamp to the project. Inspired by the Big Bang that created the Universe, it revolves around a simple premise: that particles attract one another and naturally come together.

“Thirst has always explored new areas and arenas,” comments Ben Law, Director of Future Sound Asia. “When we featured Godskitchen Boombox in 2010, it was the first time that a Malaysian audience had been exposed to the kind of high concept show where the music and the DJ are only the start of the experience. Now, with Thirst We Are All Stardust, we’re taking a step further. It’s time to create our own story.”

Thirst “We Are All Stardust” brings our galactic history, present and future to life, exploring that feeling of unity and togetherness that we experience when we are all dancing to the same rhythm. A night of the inimitable experiences, shared moments and sounds that is unique to the universe of Heineken Thirst.
