Fitness isn’t about brute strength but all about a new attitude that the Indian millennials are forever thinking about. #LeanIsTheNewMean isn’t just another hash-tag that dominates the social media space around us but is pursued with a lot of involvement and creative interpretations. Only the other day I was reading about Beer Yoga and, believe me, I was completely baffled. I muttered, ‘If I don’t understand the language and the inclinations of the youth today, can I ever be fit?’
Specky, my wife smiled and replied, ‘Fitness isn’t about one little muscle pulsating with excitement but is something really comprehensive.’
‘Comprehensive?’ I asked, ‘How do you define that?’
‘Only the other day you were telling me about that new device called the C7Pro,’ she said, ‘and how that device from Samsung defines fitness. Why can’t you pick up clues from there?’
This made me think. And I searched and what I found was that the word ‘fitness’ isn’t easy to define because it is tagged by a bagful of words that are closely associated with it. Words like health, strength, robustness, sturdiness, hardiness, vigour, lustiness, stalwartness, suitability, capability, competence, competency, proficiency, ability, and even aptitude. The Dentist Marco Island even says that fitness is all about ‘the quality of being suitable to fulfil a particular role or task’.
Specky went through my list of synonyms and said, ‘You have it all here. And I guess the first step to real fitness begins with actually holding the C7Pro in your hands and staring at your selfie for a reinforced resolution to get fit!’
I smiled. The realization that youthfulness is all about doing what the youngsters do and how they go about doing it, is nirvana to some extent. Thus began my exploration into the real truth of the C7Pro. And in no time I had my own definition of fitness meandering through this state-of-the-art technology that the C7pro boasts of.
Yes, I did start by recollecting what Sandeep Singh Arora, Vice President, Online Business, Samsung India said about the device: ‘The Galaxy C7 Pro is a slim and stunning device, which comes packed with powerful features for unparalleled multitasking and multimedia experience making it a Lean and Mean machine for the millennials…’ and thus I realized that at 7mm, the slim C7Pro gave a user a comfortable grip.
‘Aha! I have the first fitness mantra,’ I shouted, ‘Your spouse or girlfriend must be able to grip you comfortably. So abdomen tyres are definitely out.’
‘You’re definitely getting there,’ smiled Specky. Well, a smile works wonders and I went through the specifications of this smartphone and realized that it is crafted with a full metal unibody and a 2.5D Gorilla Glass that makes it durable. The 5.7” (which is just 14.43 cm compared to my 44 inch girth) FHD Super AMOLED display gives an immersive and enriching viewing experience. Thus fitness is all about your lean frame and a youthful shine on your face! By the way, the C7Pro has an enviable body-to-screen ratio of 73.96%… and I thought about it, ‘Can I ever have this kind of a ratio?’
I then surveyed the performance parameters of the phone and realized that the 2.2 GHz octa-core processor and 4GB RAM, in the words of a fitness trainer, would be competence, proficiency, and ability rolled into one. After all, it is only because of these features that the C7Pro handles multiple tasks with ease, with speed, and without hiccups. An inbuilt memory of 64 GB, expandable to 256 GB is all about the ambit of skills.
‘What about the battery?’ asked Specky.
‘Lustiness and vigour is what the battery represents,’ I replied, ‘and the C7Pro has a powerful 3,300mAh battery with the ability to recharge completely in just 100 minutes. Fitness is thus not only powerful stances but also the ability to speedily bounce back after total exhaustion!’
‘Ha! Ha! This analogy is interesting.’
‘You haven’t even got to the camera yet,’ I said, and then explained that the Galaxy C7 Pro has a 16MP rear camera as well as a 16MP front camera both with an f1.9 aperture lens for clicking absolutely clear and sharp pictures even in low light. ‘The rear camera comes equipped with Phase Detection Auto-Focus and Dual LED flash features, which allow users to capture clear and bright photographs,’ I added, ‘and the front camera offers an upgraded selfie experience with its pre-installed beautifying effects. The floating camera button in Galaxy C7 Pro enables users to take the best shots at ease with single hand.’
‘And how does the camera connect to the notion of fitness?’
I wasn’t foxed at all… because an image resolution of 4616×3468 pixels is a symbolic representation of overall and comprehensive fitness. ‘Only a fit person is able to see the world as it is meant to be seen,’ I said, ‘others see a world that is crumbling and on a path of degradation.’
By the way, the C7Pro is a dual SIM device that has one Nano and one Nano hybrid slot, continues with the 3.5mm audio jack, weighs 172 gms, and runs on Android v6.01 Marshmallow OS… and at an MRP od 27,990 INR it does transform life into a fitness mantra. No flab anywhere… not even fiscal dead-weight to be carried around as a subliminal trauma. This smartphone truly unites the activities of the mind and the body in a seamless manner. I will call it a work of art and a fashion statement indeed. All I can add at this stage is that the phone isn’t only for the new Indian millennials but also for all those who love to show the world a fit face!
