If there is something good which has come out of the pandemic, it’s the way humans have started to care about their health. From eating healthy and strengthening their immunity system to taking care of their workout regime, people have started giving more importance to fitness now.

Tech plays a vital role in this process, and smart wearables are one such category of products which makes healthy living a lot easier. From monitoring your workouts, step count and blood oxygen levels, these smart devices help you keep a check on all aspects of your health.

The Apple Watch was one of the first smartwatches to enter this arena. Over the years, we have seen many additions to the watch which have kept in mind the changing times—like the 20-second hand wash alert which has been a great add-on for the pandemic.

We have always liked the activity ring aspect in an Apple Watch because that pushes the person to work harder for their goals. You are constantly reminded to stand, walk more, and achieve the targets you have set for yourself. Above all, you have the option to compete with your friends which makes the process a lot more interesting. In the end, when the watch your goals achieved, it gives you a feeling of immense satisfaction.

Such options are usually hidden in the Health app and need to be discovered. One of my recent favorites has been the V02 max which has some great ways of checking how fit you actually are and giving you the ultimate aerobic fitness test.

Being at home for the past one year has meant that many like me have skipped heavy weight workouts and moved towards low endurance sports. The V02 max works well within such parameters. It is a measurement of the amount of oxygen from the air you breathe into your lungs, which is then transported by your bloodstream to your muscles, where it is converted into energy during a workout.

Why is V02 max important? If you have been training for a long time but do not have good endurance levels, V02 max is going to help you a lot. It helps measure your progress as an increase in V02 max indicates an improvement in your aerobic fitness. Improved workout endurance like the ability to run for longer periods without breaks can be measured in V02 max, helping you keep track of your improvement. During the last year, many of us have taken to running and walking outdoors and that’s where V02 max really comes into play. We need to remember that these are the two types of workouts which also help estimate V02 max on the Apple Watch.

How does one check their V02 max? For that, you need to use the Health app on your iPhone. Go to Health Data, then Activity, and scroll down. Once you have your data, you can compare things and keep an account of your wellness and health.

Personally, V02 max has helped me in the last few months. For someone who was majorly into weight training, switching to outdoor runs was hard and maintaining consistency wasn’t easy. However, having a constant measuring scale has been helpful in such a case as it only made me push myself for a healthier tomorrow.

Software-wise, there are two photographic styles; ‘Leica Authentic Look’ and ‘Leica Vibrant Look’. The authentic look aims for a natural image, focusing on light and shadow contrast to add depth to photos, reported GSM Arena. The vibrant look leverages Xiaomi’s computational photography smarts with Leica’s aesthetic. Additionally, there are Leica filters—Leica Vivid, Leica Natural, Leica BW Natural, and Leica BW High Contrast.

The other two cameras on the back of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra carry over the trusty 48MP Sony IMX586 1/2.0-inch sensor, used in the Mi 11 Ultra.

Furthermore, similar to the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, the 12S Ultra brings stereo speakers tuned by Harman Kardon, with support for Dolby Atmos. The software at the helm is MIUI 13 over Android 12.

The Xiaomi 12S Ultra weighs 225g and is water and dust resistant to IP68 standards. It comes in Classic Black and Verdant Green with a leather-like rear finish.

Xiaomi has confirmed that it’s not going to be available outside China, where the phone costs CNY 5,999 for the 8/256GB, CNY 6,499 for the 12/256GB, and CNY 6,999 for the 12/512GB, as per GSM Arena.

The 06 best internet providers for gaming in 2022



Everyone knows that lag is the worst aspect of gaming. As a result, choosing an internet provider with the quickest download speeds and the lowest latency in your location is critical. Despite the fact that there are various internet service providers, locating the finest internet in your area might be difficult.

Gaming technology is evolving, and the consoles, as well as the broadband connections that we use, must adapt to keep up. Gone are the days when a gaming connection of up to 10 Mbps was deemed ideal. Now is the era of lightning-fast speed and low latency.

Keeping these points in mind, many prominent internet service providers have started improving their internet speeds. One such example is Spectrum, which provides even the most basic plan with an internet speed of up to 200 Mbps and if you are fond of gaming, Spectrum Deals make it easy for you by providing efficient internet service for a faster, secure, and more dependable web experience.

Some providers will not be available in your area, and those that are will have different offerings. Here is a glance at our top selections for the best gaming internet providers in 2022.

  1. Spectrum

Charter Spectrum is one of the country’s largest broadband providers. It provides high-speed internet, cable, and landline phone services in more than 42 states.

Although the costs are a little more than most of its competitors, the lack of commitments, 30-day money-back guarantee, unlimited bandwidth, and no monthly modem rental more than makeup for it. You can receive download speeds of up to 940 Mbps, but most of us do not need that much speed. Plans with speeds of 100, 200, and 400 Mbps are available.

  1. Xfinity

Xfinity is another great non-fiber alternative that excels in key areas. You attain speeds and performance, and it is smooth sailing no matter what game you are playing. There are several download speeds available from Xfinity. Because not all gamer homes are created equal, a tag term duo will need up to 100 Mbps; and three to four Battle Royal teens will need up to 25 Mbps.

  1. Cox

Cox Communications is one of the country’s largest carriers, with operations in 18 states. It is well known for its cable and high-speed internet services. Cox connects your home to the internet and television via a coaxial cable network. The packages are meant to fulfill the needs of households with basic consumption such as routine surfing, as well as those with heavy streaming, downloading, and gaming.

For high-end consumption, Cox high-speed internet plans provide speeds of up to 150 Mbps, 300 Mbps, and even 1 Gbps. To be honest, all of the packages have a 1TB usage restriction, which is close to unlimited.

If there are several users, these download rates are more than adequate for gaming. Unlike the other providers, Cox gives its consumers an additional benefit. The Cox Elite Gamer Plan is designed to make the most of your gaming time. Customers with Cox Preferred 100 or higher-tier plans can get it as an add-on. At this point, you might be thinking about what its function is.

The general mindset is that this addition will boost your download rates. This is essentially not the case. It will reroute the traffic from your PC to a gaming server utilizing an intelligent server. This rerouting will take the shortest route possible, for example, while using Google maps to find a specific address, it will show you the quickest route to your desired location.

That is exactly how it works. As a result, you receive lower latency, which is great for first-person shooting games that require a speedy server response.

  1. AT&T Fiber

Despite being unviable in the majority of states, a fiber connection is the Holy Grail for some games. We cannot recommend fiber internet enough, especially if you plan on streaming your gameplay on Twitch. For live streaming and gaming, AT&T fiber provides smooth, symmetrical, and quicker download as well as upload rates.

  1. RCN

Although RCN’s coverage region is limited, its pricing is among the most competitive internet providers. Its fiber network is gradually expanding, but service is currently limited to major metropolitan areas.

Whatever high-bandwidth activity you select, RCN’s fiber-rich internet offers Gig-speed internet. When compared to cable, this means faster internet speeds, substantially reduced bandwidth, and more stable gameplay.

  1. Verizon

Verizon puts its entire focus on customer service, as it believes that customers make or break a business. Apart from being the very best in handling customer complaints, Verizon also makes it to the top of the list when it comes to fiber-optic technology. Moreover, they also give you the option of customizing your plan as soon as you pair it up with a TV.

Verizon’s secret recipe includes the Fios Gigabit Connection, which essentially is the swift, fiber optic internet that reduces lag as well as buffering. Fiber-optic networks transfer data by emitting light through hair-thin strands of optically clean glass, as opposed to cable internet, which transmits data via metallic lines as well as connectors that are more susceptible to corrosion from harsh conditions. For gamers, this means more consistent, faster gaming with less lag and latency.

Final words

Whatever service provider you choose, always connect to the internet with an Ethernet cable when playing online games to ensure a more stable, faster, and dependable connection with lower ping.

Tips to buy an inverter battery



As you know has approached already and it is quite hot this summer and power cuts have also become very frequent. All of these things, make it necessary to have an inverter at home. You can not deny the fact that inverter is one such product whose demand increases the most in the summer. Do you have an inverter at home? It is good if you have. Otherwise, you should not make any delays in buying a new one. Also, if your existing inverter is very old then you need to get it replaced. But the question is whether buying an inverter is as easy as other shopping? If you are also doubtful about this then you need to know that buying an inverter is not an easy task. You have to be quite careful about many things such as brand, quality, capacity, etc. An inverter is not such an item that you buy very frequently, you may buy it once in 3 years or five years, or even more. But acting carelessly while buying an inverter may cause you to spend your money on it more frequently. However, even if you are buying only an inverter battery for home, you need to take care of these things. If you are willing to know about such points that you should be taking care of then you need to have look at the points given below:

  • You need to know your power requirements: When you are planning to buy an inverter there are a lot of things that you should be taking care of but one of the major things is what are your power requirements. It is not like you need to have an exact calculation of your requirements but you need to have an estimate of it. Many of you will be thinking of the inverter and generator as the same items. But both of these pieces of equipment are different. The generator can take any load of power. But the inverter can not do it. There are limitations on the load that an inverter can take. Therefore, it becomes essential to consider your power requirements. Otherwise, an inverter battery may not benefit you as much as it should. If you are thinking that an inverter battery will take a load of your entire home then you are wrong. Even if you will buy a heavy inverter battery, no doubt it will take a load of your fridge, AC, and other major items of your house. But the question is for how long your home appliances will be kept running on an inverter. Therefore, if your power requirements are average then you can go for an inverter. However, if your needs are high, you are left with the only option of a generator.
  • You also need to consider the starting power and the running power: Another important thing that you need to consider while buying an inverter battery is the starting power and the running power of the appliances that you will be running on your inverter. Before you consider this point, you also need to know that starting power and the running power of all the appliances are different. On this basis, you need to consider the starting power and running power. For example, if you want to run a CFL bulb that is 18 watts then it would need 25 watts approx. To start and once it is starred in will be stabilized at 18 watts only. But the bulb is a small appliance, there are big appliances as well that will be requiring more power to start, it could be double also. Such as a fridge, a washing machine, an air conditioner, etc. Therefore, before you finalize the inverter battery, you need to consider this point very carefully. If you do not know to make an estimation of power requirement, you can take help from an expert also.
  • Whether you need an inverter or a home UPS: Another important point that you need to consider before you put your money is whether you should go for an inverter or a home UPS. Many of you would be having a question in mind what is the difference between an inverter and a UPS. Let us tell you all that there is not any major difference between these two. Both performthe same work. Both are used to provide backup power in the case of a power cut. But a home UPS, as the name suggests, provides an uninterrupted power supply. There won’t even be a single blink while switching from the main power to backup power. Home UPS can also be called a combination of an inverter and a UPS.
  • The capacity of the battery: There are a lot of important points that you will be required to consider, among all such points, considering the capacity of the battery is another one. The term ampere-hour is used to define the capacity of a battery. This term will be helping us to know the power that a battery will be supplying in a given period. Let’s say the power of the battery that you have selected is 200 AH. It will be implicit that such a battery can supply 200-ampere current in an hour.
  • Maintenance-free battery: If you are going to choose a lead-acid battery then will be required to take regular care of the battery that you will have bought. The electrolyte level of these batteries is to be topped up to the highest level. Furthermore, these batteries are to be kept in a place that will be having proper ventilation because these batteries emit harmful and poisonous gasses. If there will be no ventilation then it will be having a direct impact on your health. But you do not need to worry because there are also maintenance-free batteries available that you can buy.

These are the major points that you will be required to take care of while buying an inverter or an inverter battery. However, you can also consult Loom Solar, which is one of the best inverter battery suppliers. You can compare the inverter battery price and buy the best one for you.

Apple is prepared to introduce several new gadgets between this fall and the start of 2023, according to a report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.

According to The Verge, four iPhone 14 models, a group of new iPads, three Apple Watch models, multiple M2 and M3-updated Macs, updated AirPods Pro earbuds, a new HomePod, and an enhanced Apple TV are among the things Gurman refers to as a “deluge” of. Gurman anticipates finding the chip and its versions in several different devices, although Apple only revealed two new Macs using its flagship M2 CPU at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) earlier this month. An M2 Mac mini, M2 Mac mini Pro, M2 Pro / M2 Max 14, and 16-inch MacBook Pros, as well as an M2 Ultra / M2 Extreme Mac Pro, are all included.

There’s the long-rumored mixed reality headgear from Apple, which is anticipated to include an M2 processor. If all of this wasn’t overwhelming enough, Gurman claims that Apple’s M3 chip is already under development and will probably be used in the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Air notebooks that will be available in 2019.

Apple will release the iPhone 14 this autumn, and Gurman’s research provides a summary of all the speculations that have been circulating for the previous year or so. One is that, according to reports, the new and more potent A16 chip and support for always-on displays will only be available for the Pro and Pro Max variants.

A 48-megapixel camera sensor, a new notch with a “pill-shaped cutout” for Face ID, and a hole-punch-style selfie camera are also expected to be included in the iPhone 14 Pro models. The 6.7-inch variant will replace the Mini model, according to Gurman, while the normal iPhone 14 will contain the A15 CPU found in the iPhone 13.

According to Gurman’s source, Apple will introduce 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models using M2 technology later this year, as well as a larger iPad between 14 and 15 inches in the “next year or two.” Additionally, Gurman supports a previous rumour from 9to5Mac that claims a new entry-level iPad will feature an A14 CPU, 5G, and USB-C connectivity, as reported by The Verge. The basic Watch Series 8, a redesigned SE, and a more “rugged” watch aimed at users who participate in “extreme sports” are the other three new Apple Watch models that are anticipated for sale this fall.

Gurman points out that although the S8 chip found in the forthcoming Watch Series 8 will provide performance comparable to that of the S7 and S6 chips, the Watch that will be released the following year is expected to have an updated processor. Gurman predicts that Apple will drop the Series 3 this fall in favour of the new SE, which might include the S8 CPU, an upgrade from the S5 chip found in the SE model from 2020.
