There are smartwatches, and there are fitness trackers. If you want any combination of the two, you’ll have to accept the compromises inherent in cramming a lot of sensors into an attractive, wrist-sized package. This is the problem the Moto 360 Sport comes tantalisingly close to solving.
The 17-inch Predator gaming laptop is one of several new black-and-red gaming-focused products aimed at getting gamers to utter the words “Acer” and “badass” in the same breath. Let’s see if that trick works.
This Sunday, The X-Files returns for a six-episode miniseries. It’s been eight years since the last movie, and fourteen since the last TV episode. We’ve already watched the first three episodes of the new series, and are here to tell you, with no spoilers, that it’s worth your time. But it may not be worth the wait.
Fitness wearables really only exist for one reason: To collect information about your health in order to coach and encourage you into being a better version of you. Even though the Band 2 sucks at being actually wearable, it’s still one of the best fitness trackers I’ve ever strapped on my wrist.
For many, a laptop is a deeply personal device, one that gets used and abused even more than a smartphone. So you really want to love using it—especially if you’re going to spend upwards of $1,600 on something like Toshiba’s new Satellite Radius 12. But the impressive hardware doesn’t make this laptop worth the price…
Last week I wrote about Woobots, the wooden robots that transform into wooden vehicles, currently the focus of a successful Kickstarter campaign. This week I play with them.
Microsoft’s Lumia 950 is the first interesting Windows phone to be released in a while, mostly because it’s the first phone designed specifically for Windows 10. It’s a phone created with the ambition of turning around Microsoft’s flailing mobile efforts.
When it comes to smartphones, there was a time when cheap really meant shitty. That’s no longer true. But which cheap phones are most worth buying?
I don’t like laptops. There, I said it. I don’t hate them, but for years I’ve felt they can be improved in many different ways. So when Apple made the iPad Pro, I paid attention. Could this be the product I’d been dreaming of all this time? The short answer: No. The long answer: Also no. But it does have a few…
In the late 20th century, people hoped that the new millennium would usher in an age of promise: hoverboards, flying cars, personal robots, and the like. That future, the one that everyone predicted, never quite came to pass. Not in the way we thought it would, anyway.
When OnePlus founder and CEO Carl Pei first showed off the new X in our Manhattan office, I was impressed. Nice glass design, kind of a hybrid iPhone/Xperia look. The textbook definition of “premium.” But it’s really what he said next that got me.
If you talk about knives on the Internet then you’ll know the Chris Reeve Sebenza is held up as the pinnacle of production knife perfection. But what’s it like to use and carry one in the real world? I let this one bite me to find out.
Smartwatches are subjected to many metaphors: “Smartphones on your wrist.” Mmm, not quite. Maybe in a few more years. “A wearable computer.” Depends on your definition of “computer.” Better keep looking. “An extension of your smartphone.” Now, that’s an idea–one that Pebble has perfected with the Pebble Time Round
I’m a huge fan of weird phones that try to reimagine the average pocket computer as something different than just a slab of metal and glass. That’s why I’ve come to respect LG’s creative risks, even if they don’t always stick. But with the LG V10, they may have gone a step too far.
The ultimate way to stay in contact with your friends while in the wilderness? This Garmin Rino 650T allows you to track each other’s positions and communicate by voice or text, outside cell service.
I’ve been a happy Roku 3 owner for the past few years. It does what it’s supposed to do, with no hassle. It’s been exhilarating seeing the Fire TVs and Chromecasts come into this world, but I stuck by the Roku, waiting for a really cool update. Now there is one with the Roku 4, but does it have enough to go for the…
“Holy Shit!” Those are the first words said—or, more typically, shouted—by everyone who’s thrown a leg over the 2016 Specialized Turbo S. This thing is fast. But it’s not the speed that takes you by surprise, it’s how well electric power is integrated into the human cycling experience.
Let me be blunt. If I lost my iPhone a week ago and needed a new one, I would’ve bought the HTC One A9. It looks great, and upon first glance, works pretty great, too. But I didn’t lose my iPhone, and the A9 is now more expensive than I thought it was.
Leatherman’s new Signal multitool is the first to incorporate essential survival items like a fire starter and a whistle alongside traditional tools like a quality knife blade and pliers. A one-tool solution for the wilderness?
