Erin Lawrence with Withing Smart Scale, Alexa Smart Kettle, GE Smart Mixer and Echo Frames – HGG568

Erin Lawrence joins this week (Don’t forget to visit for all the reviews). First, we look at the Withings Smart Scale, which Erin found to be problematic despite having a poor experience with a previous smart scale. Next, we looked at the Alexa Smart Kettle, which they found to be surprisingly helpful due to its voice control feature. The GE Smart Stand Mixer was also reviewed, which features a built-in scale and can be controlled through a cell phone or voice, with automated recipes. The Echo Frames 2nd Gen, which are sunglasses that double as headphones and can be controlled through Alexa, were also discussed. We wrapped it with the Juiced E-Bike, specifically the Juiced CrossCurrent X Step-Through model, and Erin shared her new found love for E-bikes! Thanks for listening!
