    BMW and M Power Owners

    BMW Insured Warranty question, regarding the policy booklet condition that: what does this mean for consumables like brake pads/discs where my understanding is that all brakes on sale need to conform to a minimum standard to be on sale at all? Would I need to stipulate a certain brand was used...

    What watch do you wear?

    New SRPE51K1, not so keen on the bracelet but loving it on a strap. The lume is fierce and makes the indices a sort of grey-green when charged.

    What watch do you wear?

    WOTD: Lyle and Scott (lol) Stealth Automatic, NH35 movement, domed mineral crystal, PVD case, on a silicone Fossil strap. Paid £20 from the YouTuber Ben Arthur (Ben's Watch Club). Happy with it as a muck about beater :D

    Dog 'Attack' Advice Request

    Your dog was on a lead, theirs was not and was pestering you and your dog. Politely suggest they keep their dog on a lead in future. A pet hate of mine is people that walk their dogs off leads in public places. While the majority of dogs are friendly, the majority of dogs (not all) also have a...

    [Relative Networking noob] Smart lights/Guest Wifi Isolation

    Random question, I have some cheapo smart lights that are connected to a wireless access point (TP-Link AC1200 C50) which is connected to the internet via ethernet to my router that deals with the fibre to the house connection. I have set up a guest wifi network on the access point due to...

    What watch do you wear?

    Yes it is, one of the Veryan 'Tudor style' ones. Quite pleased with it and very comfortable.

    What watch do you wear?

    Clearance-tastic zuludiver on the Certina DS First, second pass chopped off for slimness. Got a blue/white strap coming for my white-dialed Tissot T-Touch Classic as well. Hopefully won't get a grilling from the wife for all the extra straps that lockdown has caused

    What watch do you wear?

    The swiss style ones are good quality and the movable first keeper is a great idea, but the metal keepers are huge and stick out quite a bit. I bought one of these, and they're really nice but I wish the keepers were slimmer so that the strap had less space to move once you've slipped it through.

    What watch do you wear?

    I like wearing watches snug (can still get a finger underneath) and no hair issues as of yet!

    What watch do you wear?

    Must have missed that, I rarely come on here other than to lurk the watches and Pixel 5 threads, and ask the odd question in Motors. What was the moaning about?

    What watch do you wear?

    I've been poring over Watchgecko for ages, hadn't considered rubber NATOs though, its a shame the single-pass grey isn't in stock. I'll have a look at these, the Erikas ones are a bit pricey so I'll have a look around as well.

    What watch do you wear?

    Anyone got any bright ideas for strap (20mm) recommendations? Had the watch for 12 years (bought on return from my first jaunt in Afghanistan) and as such has some sentimental value. Came on a titanium bracelet which I no longer like (stereotypically Seiko in quality) and as such I currently...

    Google Pixel 5

    It doesn't support video out over USB-C. If you want such an experience then a Samsung might be better, I used Wireless DeX recently and it was very impressive.

    Google Pixel 5

    If this is about dbeckett they had a cracked camera glass, not screen I find the fingerprint reader really quite good (especially coming from the OnePlus 6T's in screw reader) unless it/my finger is wet. A case helps loads with the aiming, I agree it's pretty difficult to hit reliably without one.

    Yeah, it's pretty annoying. I submitted my claim on 27 October and I'm still waiting for them to be sent out.
