Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro Review – A stylish but incremental upgrade from the GT2

The Honor Watch GS Pro leans into the fitness features adopting an outdoorsy aesthetic for fans of watches like the Casio G-Shock. The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro refreshes the design of the original GT 2 with a traditional look and premium materials. I have been using the GT 2 Pro for the past week to see if it has changed much since the original GT2 launch. Specification Display: 1.39 inch AMOLED 454 x 454...

Everything You Need to Know About Smart Electric Meters

Netgear has expanded their range of Wi-Fi 6 hardware dramatically this year, offering consumers as much choice as possible at different price points. This has now been extended to include gamers. Netgear claims the  Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR1000 is the worlds first Wi-Fi 6 router for gamers. TP-Link may disagree though, the Archer AX11000 is aimed towards gamers with dedicated gamer accelerator modes. There is also the Asus ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 which couldn’t be any more gamer focussed with its RGB lighting. Anyway, this is the first WiFi 6 gaming router Netgear has launched that is running DumaOS. DumaOS...
