#FlipkartOutdoors - Last month, I was active on IndiBlogger and that's the reason I was able to register for the IndiMeet, coz IndiBlogger was smart enough not to send an email invite about the meet. ;) After attending the #FlipkartImageSearch IndiMeet at HRC, Bangalore I did not want to miss the blogger event. One for networking with the fellow bloggers and two Flipkart always has so much to give and three it's my first IndiBlogger Outdoors meet.
Here it begins, on 20th February Saturday morning we left early following the Google maps and it suggested an easy route through Electronic city - but it did not advise about the narrow roads. We reached venue on time, this time we had a mobile reporting through IndiBlogger and it was cool. They just had to scan the QR Code from our IndiPass and we receive a welcome message on our registered mobile. We also got time to time updates about the meet over the phone. Jai Ho technology. We then collected our wrist band and headed for the breakfast. The breakfast was decent considering there were two huge teams, 125+ IndiBloggers and a huge family team outing from one of the IT companies (Lucky they).
After breakfast, our activities begin. Anoop as usual lively and energetic briefs us through the events of the day, continued by Vineet's hilarious warm up exercise. We were then divided into 7 groups and we dispersed to different Flipkart partners' counters. They were from Garmin, Samsung, Red Chief Mens shoes, Polaroid, AltecLansing, Sony, and Coleman. We spent quality time understanding the products they had to offer, trying the devices, verifying and providing feedback if the device did not work well.
Garmin - Our first visit was to Garmin counter where they had spread various Garmin Fitness Bands, we tried them and one of us were handed the device to test the features for rest of the day. The Garmin Fitness Bands are awesome and pocket friendly. The Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band which we tried monitors your moments and record your calories, heart rate, sleep with lot of easy to use features. And it's sleek and adjustable any wrist size.
Samsung - A well known brand in India, who wouldn't want to own these smartwatches. They had variety of smartwatch collections with different price range obvious that a little heavy on the wallet but the features are awesome and reliable. It's a must buy for a fitness freak and one wouldn't regret buying Samsung smart watches.
Red Chief - They had variety of corporate casual shoes on display, cool shoes, we girls couldn't try them as it was manufactured on for men. So men's had an add on during the #FlipkartOutdoors.
Polaroid - Polaroid counter seemed cool to me, I was reminded of the olden days when they used to take the instant photographs after seeing Polaroid ZIP Zink Photoprinter. I'm sure I'm going to own this soon.
Another cool device they had and the USP of the outdoor event was their Polaroid Cube, an apt device for your Outdoor ventures. They had a variety of add-on accessories to support the cube they were Helmet Mount, Body Strap, Monkey Stand, Tripod Mount, Waterproof case, Bumper case, and Bicycle mount. When we visited the counter only accessories left was the body strap, however, I tried them on my hand and I was able to shoot the action videos. It's a cool device, shock proof and easy to use having just one button for all actions.
AltecLansing - Altec Lancing Mini LifeJacket Wireless Speakers and Altec Lancing Bluetooth Active Earbuds were stealing the show. They were pouring water on the bluetooth speaker and the music still playing uninterrupted. This demonstrated that the device is apt for outdoor activities on any condition rain or shine. There was a contest for Altec Lancing Bluetooth Active Earbuds, they claimed that the gadget would not fall out from the ears with any kind of body moments. But our adventurous bloggers made sure to shake their heads as much as they can to drop the earphones down.
Coleman - Any outdoor adventure wouldn't be complete without the Coleman products. They had the Coolers, Tents which are easy to assemble, Quad chairs, and lot of takeaway for the winners like water bottles, head torch, tiffin boxes and so on. Each team had to participate in assembling the tent, Prashant's team won as they were able to assemble in 90 seconds.

Sony - Sony action cam, one of the best during the #FlipkartOutdoors. They were rough and tough in the action camera category, also waterproof. I'll have you decide on the Sony action cam features seeing the video shot by Prashant Bhandare here:
After the entire product demo, real fun begins with the activities lined up at the Mango Mist resort. We tried Bamboo walking, hilarious land zorbing, paintball activities, and to end with a relaxing fish spa and the mist dance. Thank you #IndiBlogger and #FlipkartOutdoors, you rock.
P.S: Thank you #Flipkart for the coupons on #FlipkartImageSearch contest.
