The Lazada Online Revolution is back this year on 11.11 and 12.12! Kicking off the month-long sale on 11 November (11.11) and ending with another mega sale on 12 December (12.12), Lazada is offering up to 90% off its products, more than a hundred daily flash deals, and $29Â Surprise BoxesÂ (worth at least $100).
IÂ was thrilled to be given the chance for a sneak peek at one of their Surprise BoxesÂ two weeks ago, and even got to receive a Surprise Box of my own! Having bought mainly electronics – the notoriously explode-y Galaxy Note 7s and kitchen appliances – from Lazada before, I naturally chose to receive a Technology box for mine. Boy did I get some cool tech from one of the brands partnering up for these Surprise Boxes! Say hello to what you might receive from theÂ Lazada x Lenovo Surprise Box:
The Lenovo Heart Rate Band G03 ($98) was the only item in my Surprise Box, and it came as a very pleasant surprise! No wonder my box was so light. I’m not usually a fan of watches, since I’m a recovering germophobe and they get in the way of washing my hands… but wearables are intriguing, so I decided to bring this on a test drive for a week and change to see how I’d like it.
Surprisingly, I got a lot more use out of my Heart Rate Band than I expected after about 11 days of virtually non-stop wearing; I even wore it in the shower because it’s waterproof! Not so sure about it being soap-proof, but we’ll find out soon enough. I no longer miss a phone call because it’s synced to my phone via bluetooth and the band vibrates whenever I receive a call or message, or a notification from certain apps I set on the Lenovogo app. Very cool considering that I opted out of my telecom company’s $5 monthly surcharge for caller ID and no longer see phone numbers to call back should I miss a call.
Left: Here’s my sleep tracker for the past week. I’m very amused by how the chart cuts off on the Thursday that I got myself a good 11 hours of sleep.
Right: Here’s a screenshot of my daily sleep tracker. The band even tracks deep and light sleep!
I was initially leery of how the band would determine when I’m sleeping, but it was actually so accurate that I had to find out how wearables track sleep; apparently one’s heartbeat is also a factor in this estimation. I did manage to fool the band once by lying in bed and spending an hour browsing on my phone – apparently I was so at peace that the band indicated that I’d slept for 1 hour and added it to my total sleep time for the night.
Left: The band automatically tracks the resting heartbeats per minute, although it really only extrapolates from about 15 seconds of data. Tapping the device also enables you to manually measure it.
Right: I’m a lazy bum and don’t walk enough.

Segway – I just found out what a second degree burn entails and realised that the blisters I noticed on my chest the second night of a very hot July in Taiwan was a result of second degree burns. From the sun. Despite regular attempts to lather on sunscreen during my trip. Life is cruel and painful.Â 😭
Anyway, thank you Lazada for the Surprise Box! I’m going to need a couple of stuff to populate my new house with, so this comes at the perfect time. Perhaps I’ll even camp out for some of the Surprise Boxes this Saturday! If you’re new to Lazada, they’ve got a special voucher code for the first 100 new customers fromÂ 11 November – 14 December! Key inÂ the code: LAZOR2017NEW for 18% off, capped at $11.
