Basis Peak Review: The Best Activity Tracker Yet

The original Basis B1 Band was damn near the greatest activity tracker in the land, but it wasn't. It had all the sensors (and then some) it took to get there, but its performance was inconsistent, and perhaps more importantly, it was bulky and ugly. Well, the Basis Peak is here now to right those wrongs, and guess… » 11/05/14 10:00am 11/05/14 10:00am

Moto Hint Review: ​The First Bluetooth Headset I Wasn't Ashamed to Wear

Bluetooth earpieces have always stuck out. I mean they've literally stuck out of your ear. Perhaps they're not as much of a fashion faux pas as Google Glass, but there's definitely a stigma about them. To combat the cyborg look, some wearable manufacturers are building smartwatches, but Motorola also has a backup… » 10/13/14 2:48pm 10/13/14 2:48pm

Garmin Forerunner 920XT: The Best Triathlon Watch Gets Even Better

Since early 2012, the Garmin Forerunner 910XT has been the best triathlon watch, period. Others have tried to step up, but to this date nothing has equalled its wealth of features. And now it seems Garmin has raised the bar for itself. The new Forerunner 920XT is everything the 910 was, and much more. » 10/01/14 7:00am 10/01/14 7:00am

Moto X (2014) Review: Still the Android Phone For Everyone

The original Moto X, which debuted last year, was a different breed of smartphone. Rather than trying to build a beast with the best screen and the most horsepower, Motorola focused on the user experience above all else. The result was a phone that was so intelligent and comfortable to use that it almost didn't… » 9/11/14 3:34pm 9/11/14 3:34pm

Moto 360 Smartwatch Review: The Best Might Not Be Enough


Early this year when Google first announced Android Wear, it teased us with the Moto 360. It was by far the best-looking smartwatch we'd ever seen. Many months later it's here at last. It's the best Android Wear device yet, but with the Apple Watch looming on the horizon, it's no longer clear if that's good enough. » 9/11/14 11:00am 9/11/14 11:00am

Samsung Galaxy Tab S Review: Good Lord, That Display

Samsung's tablet approach the last few years has been to toss every conceivable size into the stores to see if anything takes. They tended to all look they same, perform the same (not great), and vary by just an inch or two here and there. The Galaxy Tab S is different, though. It grabs you by the eyeballs and won't… » 6/24/14 9:00am 6/24/14 9:00am

Sony Xperia Z1S Review: Big Camera In a Sleek Package

Sony finally got one mostly right when it came to tablets last year, but the Japanese company has struggled more with phones. The Xperia Z is the closest thing it's had to a success, and ultimately, it left us wanting more. So, we were excited when we first saw the Xperia Z1S, which on paper looked like a champion. A… » 1/13/14 9:00am 1/13/14 9:00am

Samsung's Galaxy NotePRO and Galaxy TabPRO Tablets are Big and Dreamy

Samsung's tablet family is about get a few new professional members. The new Android tablets, dubbed the Galaxy NotePRO and Galaxy TabPRO (which includes three sizes) are definitely aimed at the business sector, but they certainly look like flagship products that anybody would want to get their hands on. » 1/06/14 5:00pm 1/06/14 5:00pm

​Moto G Review: The Best Cheap Phone, But Still a Cheap Phone

Cheap smartphones—we mean really cheap, off-contract smartphones—are terrible. They're tormented by horrid, pixilated screens, they're slower than your grandma, and they feel like they're held together by Scotch tape. The $180 (off-contract!) Moto G is none of those things. It definitely has significant shortcomings,… » 12/09/13 1:57pm 12/09/13 1:57pm
