Bad Bunny - X 100PRE Music Album Reviews

The expertly sequenced and always vibrant debut from the Puerto Rican rapper collects every fascinating side of Bad Bunny into one singular statement.
In the first three years of his nascent career, Bad Bunny put out enough singles and did enough guest features to fill out several albums. As an audition for pop superstardom, it’s been impressive. He can adapt to seemingly any style—trap, R&B, reggaetón, bachata, dembow—with a heavy, nasal croon perpetually drenched in Auto-Tune. He became a huge star in 2018, circumventing terrestrial radio and government censorship to become the third-most streamed artist in the world on YouTube. Why does Bad Bunny even need to release an album?

Nokia Body Cardio Review

Nokia Body Cardio Review
PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
  • $179.95
Withings (which has since been brought under the Nokia brand) was one of the first manufacturers of smart scales, and the Body Cardio offers a wide range of health measurements. It also offers two light versions, the Body and the Body+.

Make sure you are buying the right Nokia scales when looking at the best online prices: the range goes from the basic Body scales up to the most sophisticated Body Cardio scales.


The scales sync well with the Nokia range of activity trackers, such as the inexpensive Go and the waterproof Steel, which looks like a normal analogue watch but measures basic activity data. See our round up of the best waterproof activity fitness trackers.

Unlike other scales the Nokia scales display your previous day’s step count and a trend graph right there on the scale display. When the Body Cardio scale is connected over Wi-Fi it even provides a daily local weather forecast – handy for runners and outside exercisers. If you don't use a Nokia activity tracker you can still sync your phone's step counter to the Nokia Health Mate app.

The Body Cardio originally monitored something none of the other smart scales could - Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV), a measurement that is a key indicator of cardiac health. Unfortunately, blaming regulatory issues, in January 2018 Nokia used a software patch to withdraw all support for PWV from the Body Cardio, removing one of its key appeals - and the biggest reason to opt for the Cardio over one of the cheaper Nokia Body scales.

Body Cardio connects via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to the free Nokia Health Mate app (iOS and Android) and automatically syncs data after every use of the scale. Graphs help users visualize trends over time and note how their weight impacts overall health. After a few weeks, users should be able to see how their lifestyle impacts their PWV.

The app's home screen is clear and concise, showing you your health stats in one easy glance, including  steps either from your Nokia activity tracker or from your phone's step counter.
Users can set goals, earn rewards over time and celebrate health milestones. Health Mate also offers integration with 150 partner apps to provide nutrition tracking, GPS run tracking and more to make it an integrated health aid. All Body Cardio data stored in the Health Mate app integrates with the Apple Health app.

Our one complaint about the Nokia scales is the graphs on the app. When you go into more detail some of the graphs turn into quite confusing squiggles, where a simple trend line would have sufficed.

Body Cardio features a rechargeable battery rather than running on four AA batteries like the other scales tested here. Nokia claims that this should last a year.

SPECS

  • Weight, BMI, body composition (fat, muscle, water & bone mass), standing heart rate and Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV)

LG G8 ThinQ Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

What to expect from LG's next flagship phone and when - here's everything we know about the LG G8 ThinQ launch date, specifications and anticipated price.
In previous years LG has always favoured the MWC tradeshow for its flagship phone launch, which is traditionally held in late February/early March. However, in 2018 the LG G7 ThinQ (pictured) was held back until May, and a general lack of whispers on the web suggests the same could be true in 2019.
