It’s a scary fact that more than eight in ten families will pay out £243* on electronic gadgets this Christmas with 16% spending a whopping a £400. This may sound surprising but when you think that the average smartphone costs anything up to £700, increased spending habits for the latest tech gadgets has become the norm.

We are spending on average eight hours and 41 minutes a day using our tech, which is 20 minutes longer than the average person spends in bed! Can you believe that? But at least we are getting our money’s worth. It goes without saying we are definitely living in a world of the tech revolution. Not only this, the tech world has reached a new level and we are now leaping headlong into a virtual world. I know, crazy, right? You too may have been bitten by the ‘tech bug’ and are wondering how to get the best from your latest must-have VR headset.

2016 is the year that cutting edge virtual reality really has stepped into another dimension across the globe to revolutionise the world of gaming and entertainment. As more and more brands are releasing the long awaited VR headsets we are now excited about accessing another world…a virtual world. I can see why, what’s not to love? From the comfort of your own home you can hop around in space, dance the night away at a concert, watch sporting highlights from a different view, treat a phobia of spiders (yes, really!), not to mention the endless gaming opportunities.

Unfortunately, these fab new headsets do not come cheap; for a high end VR headset you would be looking to part with on average anything up to £750. For that princely sum, you would definitely want to keep your state of the art tech in tip top condition! Enter AF International to help you love your new tech with some TLC.

Imagine this, you are all set for your new virtual reality experience, earphones in (so you have the best sound quality), gaming controller in hand, and last, but not least, your brand spanking new VR headset is in place.
