I like the look of the size of this gadget as it no doubt easily fits into your pocket. Better than say a smart phone which would be too bulky. Heaven forbid a cyclist or runner that might use sports apps on tablets lol 🙂 Or maybe they could lift up the tablet as a weights workout on rest breaks? Looks like a neat and useful little gadget . . .
