I’ve often recommended to people that before they purchase any gadget or electronics from local stores they should check out Amazon.com or Ebay.ph. Lately, I’ve been doing a bigger part of my online shopping from the local online shopping site Lazada.com.ph. This time around, buying local was much cheaper and faster and generally better than buying abroad.

When I needed to replace my 2 year old Aqua Sphere Kayenne Goggle With Smoke Lens, I decided to check Lazada.com.ph for possible replacements. I saw one made by Zoggs, the Zoggs Phantom Tinted Soft Seal Clear Black Goggles that sold for Php 532.00. I know Zoggs was a good enough brand after reading several reviews of their products.

I went to Amazon.com (where I bought my Aqua Sphere Kayenne Goggle With Smoke Lens) to compare the price and found that they were selling the same model I found in Lazada.com.ph at a much more expensive price of USD 29.40 or roughly Php 1,274.00. I was a bit surprised because my previous goggles were cheaper in Amazon than those sold in retail stores locally.

So I ordered the Zoggs along with a digital weighing scale (for my fitness challenge) from Lazada Online Shopping Mall and had them paid on delivery (or COD). The items arrived the next day, similar to my last purchase from Lazada.com.ph.

So far, the Zoggs goggles are working great, and I’ve logged more than 20 kilometers of swimming with them.

I’ll do a formal review of the goggles on my other blog, Life.Change.Challenge. But for now, to compare it with my Aqua Sphere Kayenne Goggle With Smoke Lens‘, the fit and comfort of the Zoggs Phantom is not at far with the Aqua Sphere Kayenne. But it terms of lens clarity, the Zoggs is clearly the winner. 🙂
