HWZ Deal Alert: 23 August 2019

By Wong Chung Wee & Neo Wei Song - 23 Aug 2019

HWZ Deal Alert: 23 August 2019

Got deal, got talk! GDGT! =)

I see things in a different sight, literally; especially ATM displays to portable smart devices. Due to the onset of presbyopia, i.e., age-related long sight, coupled with my lifelong myopia, I find it hard to read off those pesky displays.

Therefore, I don’t check my smartphone when I’m out and about. I have developed the habit of staring out into space, absorbing what’s going on around my surroundings, whilst taking caution not to gawk. Over time, I have built a mental album of sights and sounds I would have missed, had I been staring at my smartphone. Perhaps they will serve me well in my later years.

See your world in a different sight.


DJI Osmo Action

DJI’s first action camera comes with two displays; i.e, a 1.4-inch display on the front that’s ideal for selfies and a 2.25-inch (640- x 360-pixel resolution) display on the back. The camera shoots 4k footages and features electronic image stabilisation (EIS). Get the DJI Osmo Action for only S$465 (U.P S$519) at Shopee, your purchase is also backed by Shopee Guarantee.
