Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

A watch, A phone, A fitness tracker all rolled into one!

I've had the privilege to own the gear 2 for about 3 months now and I'm just blown away I know there are several"smart watches" on the market, but Ifeel this one blows them out of the water.

First off the Tizen Linux based os is fantastic. I'm so glad Samsung decided to move away from Google to run their own os. I find it easy to maneuver and the features are great. Granted is still in the early phases of development, but with a starting point like this I can't wait to see what they do with it. Not only has my watch superseded my expectations of smart watches and smart accessories, but the built in fitness features which link to my S Health app on my phone helps me keep track of my heart rate, how much exercise I'm getting and how much sleep I'm getting as well. As a heart patient I can tell you these are instrumental in helping me find out when I'm over exerting myself and need a rest or when I need to get up and move around. The apps on the store are new granted, but some are fantastic such as the 3rd party app photo gallery which allows me to pull up any and all pics from my phone with little to no effort and set my pictures as my background on my watch. The camera is extremely clear and easy to use as well as the call and texting features I don't really need to pull my phone out of my purse, car or pocket unless I need to run the Internet. Which brings me to my only con, which is there is no browser. Idk why Samsung chose to run this watch with no browser, but it's a small hurdle which I see them working on in the future. I get tons of complement's on my watch and once I start showing ppl what it can do, it blows them away. The other day I was showing a woman who works at walgreens my watch and after talking to her she said and I quote "you have made me a believer in Samsung you should work for them" lol funny as that is she immediately ordered one on the spot. I know the price tag is a Lil high, but I anyways say you can pay for quanity or pay for quality. I prefer to pay for quality. So thank you Samsung for again putting out a great product with great features that I'm sure we'll all see reach its maximum potential in no time flat
