With the release of the Series 3, Apple released a set of new Nylon/Velcro Sport Loops which are the most comfortable Apple Watch bands released to date. Unfortunately, these new Sport Loops are only bundled in with the Cellular Apple watch so that means if you get a normal Series 3, Series 2, or Series 1 you will have to shell out a little over $50 for one band which is insane.

I’d been waiting for a fake/copy to pop up on Amazon and it finally did! It’s called the Qifit New Nylon Sport Loop with Hook and Loop Fastener and it comes in all of Apple’s original colors which I couldn’t believe so I purchased a pink and a black one to see how close they come to Apple’s version. Basically, it’s the exact same thing but for $16. The colors are exactly the same but more importantly, the way the velcro is laid out and how the band feels is also exactly the same! This is the first band I’ve bought on Amazon that actually looks like an Apple product without branding.

If you have been wanting a sport loop then you can confidently buy these knowing you are getting the same thing as Apple but without the hefty price tag. It’s ideal for working out and sleeping but I bought mine mainly for sleeping since it makes the watch so much more comfortable than any other band. You can get one here on Amazon. Just as a tip, the black one is like the one I am wearing in the picture and isn’t completely black (just how Apple’s is), I believe dark olive is more of a darker gray/black.
After nearly a year, Jawbone has finally released an improved version of the Jawbone UP. Below is a quick unboxing and hands on and we will be doing a review to see if it is better than last years and worth the money.
BGR has posted the first unboxing photos of the iPhone 5. There are some slight packaging changes but the most noticeable is that the headphones come in the same retail package that they are sold in at Apple Stores.
Apple has changed its packaging slightly with the iPhone 5, and as it announced last week, the company’s new EarPod headphones are bundled with the iPhone including a plastic travel case. Also included is a new power adapter that supplies more power to the phone when charging, and of course the Lightning to USB cable.
A release that almost seemed forgotten due to all of the the Apple hype and Wii U news was the release of Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD tablet. Today we got our hands on the 7″ 16GB model since the larger model won’t be out till sometime in October. After a couple of hours I can say this is a nice improvement over the original model both in terms of software performance and hardware design. The dual Dolby speakers give great listening experience when watching movies and the re-design feels like a Nexus 7 combined with the original Kindle Fire. Check out our unboxing after the break.
The last Nintendo DS I had was the DSi Lite which I loved using but sold it to get the 3DS on release date. When I went to purchase the 3DS I saw the glossy and overall clunky design and was torn so I decided to wait until Nintendo released something better and it is finally here. Today we got our hands on the new Nintendo 3DS XL and it is the best of both worlds. The device combines the design aspects of both the DSi XL and 3DS and I am enjoying it so far even though I sold the collection of games I had for my DSi Lite. Check out our unboxing video below after the break:
After two hours of waiting in line I finally got my hands on Apple’s latest iPad. I was skeptical at first because it is physically the same as the iPad 2 but the new Retina display blew me away and that it self is a reason to purchase this. Text on the new iPad looks amazing and lifelike. For me, one of the most absurd things about the new iPad when it was announced was the new HD iSight camera in the back of the device but after using it a little I found it quite good and it can actually be used for recording video and taking pictures. Even though the iPad was not physically altered when compared to the iPad 2, after an hour of use I can say it was worth spending $500 and waiting in line for.
After a long wait we have finally gotten the PS Vita in our hands and at first glance it is beautiful. The OLED screen is stunning and it just looks good. The first edition bundle is not all very good, the case is not very nice and doesn’t feel very good and just seems cheap although it does a good job at protecting. Check out our unboxing below.
The Boxee Box has been out for a while but we never go the chance to get our hands on it. Recently Boxee announced the TV Tuner for their box which we will be taken a look at later this month. We were sent out the box so we could check out the TV Tuner later on but we decided to unbox it we will be doing a review on it in the coming weeks. So far its the best entertainment box out there, it has airplay so you can watch movies and listen to music from your iOS and it has tons of apps. It runs for about $170 which is on the steeper side compare to its competition. Check out our full unboxing and quick look after the break.
It has been over a year since we did a video on the Monster Cable Solo HD headphones which I personally thought were great but for over $200 they are not worth it unless you want to waste money. SOL Republic is a fairly new company that was started by the son of the founder of Monster Cable. The idea behind SOL Republic is too make great headphones with great sound at a cheaper price that more people can afford. Here is our unboxing of the Tracks from SOL Republic:
