VR headset for PS4 - is it still quite expensive? I can't tell if you have to have an official Sony one or not.

Yeah, only VR headset that works on Playstation is Sony's.


Don't know about the price.

Thanks - just looked it up used, looking like £100-120. Probably a no-go for me, which is annoying as I'd like to play the new Star Wars game and try Resident Evil on it.

They have said the current VR will work on PS5 btw.  But yeah.

Does anyone know if a children's smart watch/fitbit with GPS that doesn't require a sim card is a thing?

I've been looking around, can't find some that meets my criteria!

I'm using resistance bands instead, they are great.

Overtaken the candle.

Good job Yorkie? Sick of candles to be honest and the glade sprays seem to run out very quickly.

Yeah the one we've got is good. But the oils you can get can vary massively in smelliness. The ones that came with ours were barely detectable without pouring about half the canister in.

Need a car phone mount. Can anyone recommend any that are properly sturdy? Hate the ones that stick to the window. Have had them before and they've fallen off. Having just got a new phone I'd be gutted if this happened. :lol:

Wor lass swears by this one. It has wireless charging functionality too if your phone supports that.

For the wireless charging to work as it should, you'd also need a fast charging cigarette lighter charger too, like this one for example.

Thanks for this recommendation. orders some on the back of it, and genuinely produce an excellent workout that can feel intense. :thup:

I think it’s good how they provide most resistance as they get stretched more, so different to normally moving a weight which gets easier as you get it moving.

I did 23andme.  It's not good for tracing your family tree, just connecting with distant relatives who have done the same test.

It's not that interesting for most Brits anyway.  All my American colleagues were getting detailed results showing where all their ancestors had emigrated from, I just got 99.2% British.
