Blog Update

السلام عليكم و رحمةالله و بركاته

Hi everyone, how are you all doing?

This post is an update on the blog and the reason for it is because I have pretty much lost a few years worth of work due to my previous web hosting company.

It really broke my heart to realize that so many beautiful posts that I worked really hard on were lost because they were beyond negligent and insisted on deleting databases etc from my blog.

Taken from the Internet

However, I managed to recover the first few years of my work and I plan on starting over again. The current posts shall be archived and some new and interesting things will be coming your way soon.

During the pandemic and more so in the last few weeks especially, I managed to somewhat restore my site, however it’s still not perfect or where I would like it to be.

In the mean time, I’d like to express my heartfelt thanks to all of my subscribers and I will continue to bring you interesting posts from food to Islamic lifestyle and travel.

Keep well & keep safe,

Rubina

Product Review:2: Fitbit Flex

السلام عليكم و رحمةالله و بركاته

Earlier this year, while at OR Tambo,waiting to board, I came across a shop selling Fitbit gear.

What is a Fitbit?

A Fitbit is a tracker that syncs via Bluetooth with your phone.
It keeps track of your steps, diet, exercise, calories and even tracks your sleep!

A Fitbit Flex is an easy way of wearing the tracker. Not only is it stylish but it will be with you wherever you go.
Want to check how many steps you’ve done?
Easy, just tap the tracker and every illuminated LED light will show you 20% of your target steps that you’ve completed.

There’s a beautiful color range of bands available that you can insert your Fitbit Flex tracker into, even some designer wrist bands!

Now I had been looking for a pedometer to count my steps and to be more active generally, and this seemed almost perfect. And so I bought it.

That was 9 months ago, and I haven’t regretted using it. Infact I’m thrilled at knowing just how much I’ve moved and I’m able to keep track of my diet and calorie intake.

The Fitbit Flex is simply an awesome addition to leading a healthy, active lifestyle.

The battery life is pretty good considering that I charge it once every 5 – 6 days.
And you get an email reminder to charge your flex when the battery level goes low.

I haven’t experienced any cons to the Fitbit, except that I don’t wear my Fitbit flex on my arm. I actually strap it to my ankle because I feel it’s more accurate in counting my steps that way.

Recently a new Fitbit Force tracker has been released and I am so in love with it!
Hoping to get it soon!

NB: I was in no way compensated for this review. This is purely my own opinion after having tested this product for a period of time.
