In the midst of the pandemic, a lot of us fell in love with nature. We all needed a bit of escape, after all, and found peace of mind in outdoor pursuits.

For those who love jogging, queue up some tunes to keep you company with Sabbat X12 Bluetooth Earphones, which provides a punchy bass, dynamic stereo experience, and high-definition sound quality with its aptX technology. Lastly, whatever outdoor activity you’re into, don’t forget to stay safe and hydrated. Keep your water refreshingly cold for up to up to 24 hours with Hydro Flask 20 oz


For the city hustlers 

If you’re a city hustler who braves the metro to go to work, run errands, or operate your own business, you need gadgets that can keep you powered while on the go. Anker PowerCore Powerbank can charge up to two devices simultaneously at high speed. Traverse through the city with Lenovo D1 Lite, a navigation monitor which comes with a surround view, high-fidelity radio, and voice and sound control.

Here are some safe and painless steps to achieve that rejuvenated, youthful and glowing complexion

“Skin rejuvenation” is a very popular term for skincare products that give life to dull and dry skin. However, the common notion is that a “rejuv” can be painful, intense and even dangerous because of the harsh chemicals that they contain, often resulting in red, sore and peeling skin. The truth is, rejuvenating one’s skin can be painless and safe. Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set is a complete blend of high-tech active ingredients that work to give your skin the glow and refreshed look, the safe and natural way.

The Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set comes with Low pH Hydrating Cleanser, Get Bright Toner, Ultralight ++ Matte Sunscreen with SF 30, and the Nourishing Night cream. Hello Glow uses professionally compounded active ingredients like AHA’s, PHA’s, Bakuchiol, Niacinamide, and Micro-encapsulated Retinol to effectively rejuvenate skin, balanced with Hexylresorcinol, Centella Asiatica, Ceramides, and Hyaluronic Acid to prevent irritation that aims to improve and clarify skin texture, unclog pores, and treat acne. Safe for all skin types, great for dry, normal, combination, and oily skin!  

So how does one safely rejuvenate the skin? 

Here are some safe and painless steps to achieve that rejuvenated, youthful and glowing complexion:

It’s important to wash your face daily with cleanser to exfoliate dirt that you may have accumulated. So, first things first, wet your face and apply the Low pH Hydrating Cleanser in slow and circular motions. Leave for two to three minutes before rinsing then pat your face dry. 

Next, apply the Get Bright Toner on every corner of your face with a cotton pad to help soak up oil and remove dirt from your skin.

Third, apply the Ultralight ++ Matte Sunscreen with SF 30, at least fifteen minutes before you go outside to make sure that your skin absorbs the ingredients. This oil-free moisturizer comes in a gel form that is easily absorbed by the skin and it dries matte without any white cast or greasiness, perfectly comfortable to use under makeup.

Lastly, apply a pea sized amount of the Nourishing Night Cream to your face up to the base of your neck. Make sure to do these daily before bedtime so you can wake up with a skin that feels fresh and moisturized!

Get that healthy glowing skin with these simple and safe steps with Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set for an affordable price of PHP 360, available on Hello Glow’s official store page on Lazada and Shopee! Also available in Watsons and all other leading departments and supermarket stores nationwide.

Amazfit is bringing another amazing smart fit to the Philippines!

Amazfit, a global brand in the wearables market, is launching the Amazfit T-Rex Pro in the Philippines. 

Starting September 1, the Amazfit T-Rex Pro will be available for pre-order at Amazfit’s official store on Shopee and Lazada while retail rollout will begin on September 3. This latest edition builds upon the popularity of the award-winning Amazing T-Rex, first unveiled at CES 2020, and includes a raft of new features as a result of Amazfit’s consistent innovation.

Created to help you Explore Your Instinct, the Amazfit T-Rex Pro has passed 15 military-grade tests and can withstand most kinds of extreme conditions and challenges, making it the perfect partner for an active lifestyle. Its comprehensive health and fitness tracking functions include a host of popular outdoor sports modes for adventurous activities, making it easier to stay fit and healthy and break out of your comfort zone.

Explore Your Instinct for Adventure 

Designed for the outdoors, the military-grade Amazfit T-Rex Pro is a reliable wearable capable of enduring many challenging environments. It is shock-resistant and able to cope with extreme weather, ultra-dry deserts, and humid rainforests. It also has a water-resistance grade of 10 ATM and up to 18 days of battery life1, making it the ultimate outdoor sports companion for those who want to push their limits.

It supports four global navigation satellite systems2, enabling it to track your location in more complicated environments than would be possible with GPS alone. Whether you’re up in the mountains, or challenging yourself to train harder in the gym, you can measure your blood-oxygen saturation3 to get feedback on how well you’re handling the altitude4 or your workout. A barometric altimeter will also record how high you’ve climbed, and its reliable compass will point you in the right direction. 


The Amazfit T-Rex Pro lets you connect with your natural instinct with its weather tracker5 — a sunrise and sunset monitor6 and current moon phase display7 — which can also help you capture the best views.


The Amazfit T-Rex Pro is a high-level exploration partner and supports four Global Navigation Satellite Systems.


Exercise to the Fullest while Protecting Your Health

With over 100 different sports modes8 available, the Amazfit T-Rex Pro can track your heart rate, distance, speed, and calories burned through almost all popular sports and activities. Firstbeat™ algorithm takes things to a new level when assessing specialized data such as your maximum oxygen uptake9, full recovery time, and training load, and lets you know your progress and accomplishments. Along with this, the ExerSense™10 algorithm also automatically recognizes eight sports modes and records all related data.


A healthy heart is a priority, and so the Amazfit T-Rex Pro is equipped with the BioTracker™ 2 PPG Bio-Tracking Optical Sensor, which performs precise heart rate monitoring11 24 hours a day and issues an alert if your heart rate gets too high - and the watch also tracks heart rate variability (HRV) to record your response to stress.


To broaden your understanding of your health, the Amazfit T-Rex Pro offers personalized evaluations through its proprietary Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) health assessment system12. PAI takes all the data collected from your workouts, heart rate, and other tracked data and provides a single numerical value as your unique health score and evaluation. Armed with this knowledge, you can set your next health and fitness goal and achieve new personal bests.


Quality rest and sleep are the foundations of good physical and mental health, and achieving that all-important night of sleep is within your reach with Amazfit’s SomnusCare™ sleep-quality monitoring13 feature. The Amazfit T-Rex Pro recognizes different sleep states, such as the light, deep and REM sleep stages, detects daytime naps, and monitors potential breathing problems14 when you are asleep.


A Personal Assistant Designed for Toughness

The Amazfit T-Rex Pro can help you manage your work-life balance better and be your ultimate personal assistant. It can set alarms, notify you of incoming text messages, calls, and reminders, and also enables you to control the music on your phone from the watch – for added motivation during workouts, or when you just want to relax and listen to your favorite playlists.


It's easy to read, clear, and colorful 1.3-inch always-on AMOLED display provides you with all the information you need at a glance. With an attractive angular design, the robust metal-sprayed outer bezel keeps the weight light, complementing the watch’s pleasing rugged texture. And, along with its resilient yet skin-friendly silicone strap with a sweat-wicking design.


Pricing and availability

The Amazfit T-Rex Pro comes in three colors: Meteorite Black, Desert Grey, and Steel Blue and will retail for Php 8,090.


Amazfit is also treating early buyers with a special freebie: the first 100 to purchase their very own Amazfit T-Rex Pro will receive a YI 1080p Dome Camera. Head on to Amazfit’s official stores on Shopee and Lazada to get yours!

The Philippines' first Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz joins Team Smart

The Philippines' first Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz joins Team Smart as its newest ambassador, a collaboration aligned with the thrust of the country’s leading mobile services provider to empower and inspire Filipino athletes and its millions of subscribers.     


Much like Hidilyn, love of sports has always been deeply ingrained in the Smart DNA. The telco has been doing its share of heavy lifting to provide support for our athletes both at home and on the international stage. In fact, Smart has been a part of Hidilyn's journey since 2016.  


Moreover, the MVP Sports Foundation (MVPSF) has always been in Hidilyn’s corner, giving constant support from then until now. This partnership with Hidilyn came as no surprise because Smart and Hidilyn are coming from years of shared passion in heeding the call for a stronger nation.    

 Uplifting the nation in her winning moment     

“Hidilyn has given us something priceless amidst the challenges we all face. In her winning moment, she uplifted all of us and reminded the whole nation what triumph feels like,” said Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart.      


“Hidilyn’s historic success is every Filipino’s success story. She is committed more than ever to keep on inspiring Filipinos, and we want to work with her in telling new stories of hope, inspiration, and excellence. We look forward to a fruitful partnership with another world-class Filipino athlete in Hidilyn,” she added.       

Hidilyn is joining Smart's value brand TNT to be the latest Katropa championing Filipino values among the youth —simple at totoomapangarap, madiskarte, positibo, and makatropa. TNT aims to support local talents and help give them the platform to showcase their talent to the world, and the brand is also proud to have Hidilyn be a part of their family to spread positivity and inspire the Filipino youth in chasing and achieving their dreams.      


“Andito ako lumalaban para sa Pilipinas,” said Hidilyn. “I don’t want to give up for myself and for you because young athletes deserve a role model who doesn’t give up on her dreams. This is one of the reasons why I decided to partner with Smart and TNT, so we may continue to inspire others. Smart is also like home to me. It’s a brand that has always been there for me from way back.”       


“At TNT, we’ve seen how Hidilyn displayed resilience in the face of challenges and how she overcame these and achieved her dreams. She is indeed a role model that the Kabataang Pinoys can truly identify with and take inspiration from and we look forward to her being our newest KaTropa” said Miriam Z. Choa, Smart FVP and Head of Prepaid Business.  




Fastest 5G network in the Philippines     


Like Hidilyn, Smart also continues to raise the bar when it comes to bringing Filipinos closer to their passions powered by the Philippines' fastest 5G network.     


Ookla®, the global leader in internet testing and analysis, recently cited Smart as the country's fastest 5G mobile network for the first half of 2021. Smart notched the top place in the country with a Speed ScoreTMof 204.81, posting median download and upload speeds of 220.66 Mbps and 20.61 Mbps, respectively based on 237,142 user-initiated 5G tests taken with Speedtest in the Philippines.     


Smart has also reasserted its dominance as the Philippines' fastest mobile network for the fourth year in a row, based on analysis by Ookla of tests taken with Speedtest® covering the first half of 2021.       


On the other hand, Smart scored a rare sweep in the April 2021 Philippines Mobile Network Experience Awards by independent analytics firm Opensignal, beating the competition across all metrics in three essential aspects of service, including Coverage (4G Coverage Experience, 4G Availability), Speed (Download and Upload Speed) and Experience (Games, Video and Voice App).

Huawei Philippines organized a virtual event to warmly welcome scholars from the University of Santo Tomas (UST)

Huawei Philippines organized a virtual event to warmly welcome its first batch of scholars from the University of Santo Tomas (UST), the oldest existing university in Asia.

Thomasian students Hermil Gerard Calasang, Jia Anette Phi, Kryzha Lei Aguilar, Maricar Auditor and Matthew Gabriel Rabanes joined the Huawei family as scholars with a bright future ahead of them.

In her speech, Dean Jerralyn Padua of the UST College of Information and Computing Sciences shared how the pandemic has affected all families in terms of their financial capabilities to support the education of their children. "This opportunity given by the Huawei team is really very helpful for them to be able to continue their education despite the current situation in the country."

Dr. Angelo Dela Cruz, Dean of College of Engineering, considered the scholarship program as "very timely" given the financial difficulties faced by many students amid the pandemic. "Actually, I have just received at least 20 promissory notes last week during our enrollment. We hope the scholarship program will be the beginning of many more activities and programs between Huawei and UST that will ultimately benefit our students."

Prof. Cheryl Peralta, Vice Rector for Academic Affairs, said the program is "a great blessing and a beacon of hope in this very challenging time." "We believe that effective and productive collaborations help enrich the experience of students and university staff and allow them to do their best in the Now Normal, not only to survive but to thrive in the new opportunities brought about by the rapidly changing world of technology."

Meanwhile, Asst. Prof. Maria Cecilia Tio Cuison, Director of the Office of Student Affairs, expressed her gratitude to Huawei for the opportunity to help Thomasian students realize their dreams. "We owe it to you as a solid partner in the educative mission. You have widened our doors for far-reaching opportunities that pave the way for us to fulfill our envisioned goals, especially to sustain our strong linkage with the industry to expand educational opportunities," Tio Cuison added.

For his part, Huawei Philippines Human Resources Director Peter Zhang congratulated the five scholars, saying they are bound for great things and that they play a key role in helping the society through ICT. Zhang also thanked UST for the partnership: "We look forward to having a continuous cooperation with UST in the coming years and supporting more deserving students as well as the talent ecosystem for the ICT industry."

The scholars are in their fourth and final year in their respective programs. With their passion for technology, they hope to continue their education despite hardships, with the goal of starting a career in the ICT industry soon and being one of those who drive innovation in the country.

At present, Huawei Philippines has 19 scholars from local universities. As a company that values education and talents, Huawei Philippines has been partnering with local universities and colleges to support Filipino students in various ways and help them achieve their aspirations. Huawei advocates for Education4All by providing educational institutions with digital skills workshops and scholarships, among other initiatives.
