Mar 20, 01:12 AM

Fevzi Turkalp, the Gadget Detective, joins Bill Buckley on BBC Radio Berkshire to discuss the latest tech news and reviews. This week; The UK Government is finally to pass the Online Safety Bill aiming to clamp down on the spreading of disinformation online, intentional spreading of nudity, cyber bullying, encouraging suicide, and other acts, but how well structured and enforceable is the bill, and is there more to it than the claim of making the internet safer, could it infringe on our online personal privacy?

Gadget of the Week is the Withings ScanWatch. Available in 38 and 42mm, and with a rose gold bezel and white or blue face, this hybrid smart watch features a standard analogue face but incorporates an OLED screen. It incorporates an ECG capable of detecting atrial fibrillation, heartrate monitor, blood oxygen monitor, sleep apnoea monitoring, activity tracking, and connects to a great health app on your mobile phone. It makes an ideal Mother's Day gift and scores 4.5 out of 5
