Apple Watch Series 5 Unboxing First Look

Hi Guys and welcome to 123, in this video we will show you a first look at the Apple watch series 5.
The big news for the series 5 watch is the Always-On retina display. Which allows you to always see the time and watch face.
So when the watch is sitting idea or upside down the display will dim which saves energy, but it won’t go completely off which means you can still see everything you need.

The display can refresh as high as 60 hertz and as low as 1 hertz. This is what makes the watch so efficient. Apple says that the battery life will last for 18 hours.

Refresh rate can go as low as 1 Hertz allowing 18 hours of battery life.

Cost and Sizes?


The Apple watch comes two different sizes.
40mm and 44mm. and there are heaps of different colours, cases and bands to choose from. Pricing starts at $399 for the 40mm and $429 for the 44mm in the Aluminium case.
Case types are Aluminium Stainless steel, titanium and ceramic.
And the wrist band types are Sport Band, Sport Loop, Leather and Stainless steel.

On the outside of the box you will just have the Model Case and band information.
And when you open the box you will be greeted with an embossed image of the watch face that you have purchased which is also colour matched to the model you have purchased.
The model that we have here is the Series 5 Gold Aluminium Case in the 40mm size with the Pink Sand Sport Band.

Accessories

So lifting the lid the first thing you will see are all the accessories. The USB wall adapter for charging the watch.
And to plug into the adapter you also get the wireless inductive charging puck.
Now for this Aluminium model we get a plastic puck, however with the stainless steel model you might get a stainless steel puck.
The paper work you get is very basic it shows you a setup guide and how to install the wrist band for the first time.


The last component is the Apple watch itself and its protected by a microfibre pouch. Its coloured matched to the Apple watch and it has the size imprinted on the back.
A nice feature about the wrist bands is that they should fit any model. So if you have an older band that you really like you should be able to attach it to the series 5. And if you look on the inside you should see details like the model and serial numbers.
Now you can install and remove the wrist bands by pushing a button on the underside of the watch. And you will need to move the band side to side to make sure it has latched on properly.
Next up we take a look at the watch band and we have the Pink Sand Sport Band.

Bands!

Two sizes come with the watch so you should feel comfortable not matter the wrist size.

This is the 40 mm sport band which is the same design as the original Apple watch. Another great thing to mention is that you actually get two band sizes with your Apple watch. As you can see here we have the small medium and a medium large. So that should suit most people.

Attaching the band is as easy as sliding it into the apple watch and you should feel it click into place.
In terms of setting up the watch you will need an iPhone to do this and its a fairly simple process. All you have to do is boot up the Apple watch and hold it near your iPhone.

You need an iPhone to pair your Apple watch too.

Once your Apple watch is paired just go through the setup prompts.
Underneath the watch in the centre we have a compact optical heart rate sensor which is surrounded by electrodes, this is used to measure your heart rhythm in addition to your pulse.
If we go in and start the heart rate app you will see this sensor turn green. You will also find the specs for the apple watch etched into the ceramic bottom and these include details such as LTE, GPS and 50 meters water resistant.
On the right hand side you will notice the digital crown has a little round red circle which indicates that this is a cellular model. You also have a microphone pin hole, followed by the side button.

On the left we have a speaker grill which allows better audio for two-way communication and Siri feedback.

Water resistant.

Water resistant to 50 meters.


Also another nice feature for the Apple Watch Series 5 is the watch is water resistant up to 50 meters. You can control your iPhone as well so let say you want to take a photo with your iPhone, simply setup your iPhone and open the camera app. Press the button to take a phone. You also have a three second timer, which gives you three seconds before the photo is taken.
Series 5 is the first Apple watch to come with a built in compass. This allows you to see where you are facing in the updated maps app, just like on the iphone and you can add the compass to your watch face to see which direction you are heading.

Safety Apps

You also have safety features such as fall detection, emergency sos and medical id. Every series 5 watch with cellular has international emergency calling. So you can call emergency services in 150 country’s by pressing and holding down the side button. And you don’t need your iPhone to do this.

Noise detection App

Another cool app on the Apple Watch series 5 is the noise detection app which measures the ambient noise levels of whatever environment you’re in and warns you if the sound around you is loud enough to cause hearing loss.
Here you can see the sound has gone to high and the watch starts to give a yellow warning.
So if you want to change your watch face there are heaps to choose from simply open up face gallery app on your iphone and find the face you like and add it.

Customise !

And these watch faces are configurable. So if you want to customise your complications. Just press and force touch the screen. Tap customise. Just scroll down and you can see here its changing the colours of the compass dial.
Swipe across and you will be able to configure different complications. Next up I change it from Analog to digital. Swipe across again and i can change the smaller complications. Lets see Audiobooks, Battery, Breathe I think i will stick with battery. Tap the next complication to edit it. Starts on earth find friends, heart rate. I will stick with heart rate.

And then Just tap twice to return to watch face.

Now to find your notifications just swipe down and can scroll through them.
On the side you have the side button. If you press this once it will display a list of recent apps. Again use your digital crown to scroll through them.
If you double tap the side button it will activate Apple pay.
If you tap and hold you will be able to shut down your Apple watch.


to get to your control centre you can swipe up from the bottom. In your control center you can toggle off or on your WIFI. You also have a cellular button. If you cant find your iPhone you can ping it from your watch. Check your battery and power reserve. You also have do not disturb options. Of corse there is aeroplane mode which turns off all your wireless on your watch.

My thoughts – is the battery life enough?

Is the Apple watch worth it? I don’t know. This is the first experience with the Apple watch and I have to say its a great device that does allot! However I sat it down and left it for a day without any use and when I came back to turn it on the battery was dead. For me personally I feel like the Apple watch should last for at least three days before a charged. Already I am plugging my phone in to charge daily. Do I really want another device which I have to take off and charge after 18 hours?

Apple iPhone 11 Pro Silver Unboxing First Look

iPhone 11 Pro Silver

Hi Guys and welcome to 123. In this video, we will show you a first look at the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Silver. While the iPhone 11 has the Pro name. Right off the bat, I am not sure that these models have enough PRO type features.

Apple have focused on four main features for this iPhone. The Display gets a small upgrade. Battery life a big upgrade. Some small design changes and the new Cameras.

iPhone 11 Pro Silver – new features

The design does grow on you. When the pictures came out of those three cameras, they looked awful. However, getting one in your hand and seeing it in person will change your mind. Another great design change is the matt finish on the back. Its such an improvement over the glossy finish. Even if that finish makes the iPhone a little more slippery. I think its worth it.

iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max sizes and price

The iPhone 11 Pro comes in two different sizes. You have the Pro and the Pro Max. The Pro has a 5.8 inch display while the Max has a 6.5 inch display. Starting price for the Pro is $999 USD while the Max will set you back $1099 USD. They come in four different colours. Space Grey, Silver, Midnight Green and Gold. And you have three different capacity’s to choose from 65GB, 256GB and 512GB.

Inside the box – Accessories

So after lifting the lid the first thing see is the iPhone 11 Pro in Silver with the stunning frosted glass back panel. Normally you would see some paper work first, but this time you get to see the iPhone right away along with that new triple camera design.

Other accessories under the iPhone is the Welcome to iPhone quick guide. Which guides news users on all the buttons on the phone.  We also have the sim eject tool. And some Apple stickers.

Next up we get a set of lighting connected ear pods. In addition, the BIG news is you get the 18 watt power adapter. This means you can charge the battery up to 50% in only 30 mins. That’s a massive improvement over the smaller 5 watts adapters. I have the Australian adapter, however if your are in the US you can expect to have the US adapter.  Lastly, we have a USB C to lighting cable to support the fast charging.

The iPhone 11 Pro Silver

On the back of the phone you have the three dimensional machined glass back panel which Apple says this is the strongest glass on any iPhone. I am not going to test that but, this design does make the camera look more integrated. Inside the camera bump you will find three cameras with matching metal rings around the lenses. It is a nice look and it’s hard to tell if they are uneven or if it just an optical illusion. Don’t forget we still have wireless charging 7.5 watts.

Three Cameras, Telephoto, Wide & Ultra Wide.

The iPhone Pro is the only iPhone that has a stainless steel frame as you can see from the nice polished finish around the edges. One of the biggest new features is the battery life. Apple have added an extra 5 hours over the 10S which is a massive improvement for the iPhone. However the trade off for that is the phones are thicker and heavier.

On the left side we have the volume up and down and mute switches. On the right side we have the sleep wake power button and sim tray. However these button have been moved down slightly to make them easier to reach.

Some improvements on wireless charging, but I still had to move the iPhone around to get it to charge!

There has been some improvement with fast charging, however you still might need to move the phone around on the wireless charging pad to get it to charge. On the bottom we have a speaker on one side and microphone on the other as well as the lighting USB connector in the center.

iPhone 11 Pro Specs

Along the top once again we the earpiece which double as the second part of the stereo speakers. And these speakers sound much louder than the iPhone 10s.These phones do come with new OLED displays and they are 15% more energy efficient. But they are also brighter with 800 nits of Max brightness and can go up to 1200 nits in HDR content.The water resistance has also been improved, its still IP 68, but the depth has been doubled to four meters.

Those Cameras!

Cameras working together

So lets take a look at the all new cameras on the back. The 3 cameras all have 12 megapixels, and the camera in the top left has a F1.8 aperture with a 6 element lens an optical image stabilization. Plus we now get 100% focused pixels which helps improve auto focus in low light conditions.The Telephoto camera has a larger F 2.0 aperture and it let 40% more light into the camera.

The UltraWide camera has an F2.4 aperture and 120 degree field of view. The cameras all work together so there is no flipping between. Ill give you a demo, I start in the Ultra wide then move to Telephoto then the Wide camera. You can use the wheel to toggle up to the 2 x optical zoom, however after that it’s a software zoom. How good is it though you can see all the way down the street!!!

Photo Examples

And the photos come up really nice too here some examples.

Lets not forget about the new 12 megapixel front facing camera with a wide angle lens. Now its able to record 4k video at 60 frames per second plus because it’s a wider lens you don’t need to hold the phone further away to get a selfie. It also now comes with a slow motion feature so if you want to do a slowfie as Apple calls it you can.

This year’s CPU is the A13 Bionic CPU, which is a 2nd gen 7 nanometer chip and it main focus is energy efficiency. So you should see a about 20% increase in performance and about 30 to 40% improvement in energy efficiency. Of course, this improves the battery life which make gaming even better on the iPhone.

Unboxing & First Look at the HP ProBook 430 G2 Laptop

This video will show you an Unboxing & First Look at the HP ProBook 430 G2 Laptop.

Hi All
I had a chance recently to Unbox the HP ProBook 430 G2 model and I must say it has a very nice sleek design, however not much has changed over the HP ProBook 430 G1 model. If you are looking for a Windows based laptop that you would use for web browsing word processing and a bit of YouTube play back then this laptop might be for you. If you are into gaming then I would suggest you probably look else where.
While this laptop can run games its more designed for corporate use.
If you did want to play games on the laptop then you would be advised to upgrade the memory in the laptop so that you have a second working memory module. Once this is done the memory will work in duel-channel mode and you will get more performance out of the GPU.
One change from the G1 model is the removal of the separate headphone and mic jack and this has been replaced with an all in one combined mic and headphones port.
The display is probably the least exciting part of the G2 while the laptop is designed for indoor use the screen just isn’t as bright as other laptops in its class.
Battery life is pretty good with this model and power consumption when the device is idle is low.

HP ProBook 430 G2 Battery

This is really good because it mean if you step away form the laptop you can expect the battery to last even if you are not using the laptop.
You can expect the battery life to last around 4.5 to 5.5 hours depending on use, so that actually not to bad.

For a more in deapth write up you can check out a great review on the HP ProBook 430 G2 at the NotebookCheck website here.
