Fitbit Ionic smart watch review

Will I embrace the new Fitbit Ionic?

Admittedly, It’s been a while since I spent time with a Fitbit. I used to wear one religiously for years, and used it to track my steps, aiming daily for the recommended 10,000.

How to understand IP Ratings explained

When your electronic device is described as ‘waterproof’ what does that mean, exactly? Can you drop it in the pool, or does that mean some wine splashed on it won’t do damage?  With electronic devices like smartphones, speakers and headphones, guessing at the waterproofedness or water resistance is a recipe for disaster.
