Warszawa wschodnia, Warsaw

min_IMG_4708

If you find yourself with time to spare in Warsaw, make your way to the Soho Factory, just off Mińska. It’s a huge post-industrial, brick walled eatery. Most of the seating is shared, using the concept of ‘eating islands’. This can sometimes make for a lot of noise, but it’s a warm liveliness, without being overwhelming. The kitchen, under the command of Robert Kondziela, offers a modern take on classic Polish and French cuisine. Food is served 24 hours a day, but is ideal for a lazy sunday breakfast.

The acceptable smartwatch by @WithingsUK

lifestyle

The burgeoning smart watch market has been criticised for not matching the beauty of analogue watches. It is often cited that function has given way to form. However the clever chaps at Withings have come up with a marriage of classic watch design and cutting edge wearable technology. Designed to help you track fitness and sleep, this sleek watch defers the wrist mounted screen and lets you interact via their app. The watch itself simply gathers data and acts as a normal watch.

It’s available in two different finishes (steel or sapphire) with a selection of straps to choose from.
