Haha... I do all these nonsense stuff too.. ride up the pavement, against traffic direction, back lanes and paying off the police when i was stopped at a road block. I also ride fast with my laoya bike and hit an old aunty who pushes her bike cart across the road when green! Paid her 70k when she disappeared and appeared after the collision, holding a big bag of panadol tablets.. 70k is about $4.
lol u hit her why she buy panadol...she headache/fever after that ah. hahaha. anyway these people pushing the cart they will just go as if they own the road. then again, if they don't just whack and go, they gonna take forever.

yeah but sibei stressful if ride like that, i mean u need to focus on unfamiliar road, traffic around as well as controlling the bike

first time crossing road there also shocked hahaha … but pretty good jaywalker now lolz
first time i go those crowded roundabout also scared. but then again, it's like crossing the road, just that we're all on bikes. just slow down and look when is the right time to inch forward, when is the right time to stop and give way.

Usually I prefer public transport in the city. which smartwatch are you using?
Most of these portable tech gadgets have limited battery life.

That's the thing about smart watches. Some cannot last a full day, a few can last a little over a day to stretch to the following day.

I used a Garmin vivofit in the past (now spoil liow) and it uses a tablet battery and can run for a good 6-9 months on a new batt. Really effective for clocking steps and monitor activity. No maps or GPS or calls or read messages function though.

Public transport in the city as in public busses? Not slow?

Personally for traffic conditions like saigon and Bangkok I feel that motorbikes / tuktuk is faster leh

well i believe as we move forward with technology, batteries will be more efficient and can last longer. apple watch is pretty good ba, but not designed to work without an iphone..

Although yes, I have to charge my phone daily, even multiple times day, but I can't imagine doing that for a smart watch. Given that likely I have to remove it from my wrist, charge it, put it back on.

Just a hassle. I'm happy with a G shock or an automatic watch.

but i feel that still better not to dependent on gadgets too much, especially around city or daily routes. so you can memorized the routes you often take.

i think ticwatch can be charged by powerbank?
