Matrix PowerWatch 2 hands-on review

Matrix has unveiled the PowerWatch 2 at CES 2019. Building off the PowerWatch X, the new smartwatch packs more capabilities into a smaller, sleeker case -- that charges solely using body heat and solar rays. We take a first look at the PowerWatch 2 to see exactly what the device has to offer.
huawei watch gt review feat

Huawei Watch GT review

The Huawei Watch GT shows what Huawei can do when it ditches Google’s Wear OS and comes up with its own smartwatch operating system. The result is a stylish watch with amazing battery life, and some strong fitness tracking features, but with some surprising omissions that limited the device’s audience.
lg watch w7 review feat

LG Watch W7 Review

The LG Watch W7 is a Wear OS smartwatch, but it differentiates itself from the pack by offering mechanical watch hands. We appreciate LG’s efforts to try something new, but the execution on the W7 is flawed. At $450, the price is also steep for the limited features available on the smartwatch.
Mobvoi TicWatch C2 full review

Mobvoi TicWatch C2 review

The Mobvoi TicWatch C2 smartwatch may be powered by an older Qualcomm chip, but it does pack all the fitness features you need -- including built-in GPS along with a heart-rate monitor -- and it runs Google’s newly designed Wear OS. For $200, it’s a sleek-looking smartwatch you’ll want to wear everyday.
Polar Vantage V review

Polar Vantage V review

Polar’s new Vantage V is a high-end fitness tracker with more features than you can shake a stick at, and an updated look to compete with the best looking smartwatches out there. But with no actual smartwatch features at launch, can the fitness veteran really compete? We’ve reviewed it to find out.
michael kors access runway review

Michael Kors Access Runway review

The Michael Kors Access Runway boasts important health and fitness features, all packed into a beautiful case. While it includes Google’s newly redesigned Wear OS, it doesn’t include Qualcomm’s latest chipset. Is it still worth the purchase? We take a closer look.
Apple Watch Series 4 home screen.

Apple Watch Series 4 review

Apple already ruled the smartwatch market with the Apple Watch Series 3, but the Series 4 elevates it to new levels with more screen, a sleeker design, and a world-first electrocardiogram app that lets you keep tabs on your ticker.
Montblanc Summit 2 Revoew

Montblanc Summit 2 review

Montblanc’s Summit 2 is the first smartwatch to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor. It’s feature packed with GPS, NFC for Google Pay, and a heart rate sensor, but it also has a classic timepiece design that will leave you questioning whether it really is a smartwatch. It’s expensive, but it’s the luxury smartwatch to buy.
sonos amp review feat

Sonos Amp review

With its new Sonos Amp, Sonos reinvents its first product with a view toward making it more appealing to custom AV installers and consumers alike. With more power and more features, it mostly succeeds, but comes at a steeper price.
Skagen Falster 2

Skagen Falster 2 review

Skagen unveiled the Falster Wear OS smartwatch earlier this year, and not even a year later the Falster 2 has arrived. It’s still one of the most beautiful smartwatches available, and the new model adds NFC, GPS, and a heart rate monitor. Our Skagen Falster 2 review explains why this is among the best stylish smartwatches around.
Huawei Band 3 Pro review

Huawei Band 3 Pro review

Huawei’s latest fitness tracker is the Huawei Band 3 Pro. At $70, the Band 3 Pro is meant to be a versatile device that can be worn both day and night while also providing advanced fitness tracking when you need it. But with very few differences from its predecessor, is it worth the upgrade? Find out in our Huawei Band 3 Pro review.
Fossil Sport Review

Fossil Sport review

Fossil has released its first-ever smartwatch featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100. For $255, each quirky-colored version of the smartwatch comes packed with a heart-rate sensor, built-in GPS, and more. We took the Fossil Sport through its paces to see whether the new technology lives up to the expectations.
misfit vapor 2 review feat

Misfit Vapor 2 review

Misfit’s next-generation smartwatch, the Vapor 2, packs built-in GPS, a heart-rate sensor, and more, into a beautiful design. Even though it’s a fashionable smartwatch, it’s still comfortable enough to work out with. We take a closer look at the company’s new device.

TiVo Bolt OTA for antenna hands-on review

Free over-the-air programming isn’t available in 4K, so why would you want a 4K OTA DVR? We’ll discuss what makes the new TiVo Bolt OTA a viable choice for cord-cutters with 4K UHD TVs who want to get ahead of the game. With a cheaper starting price than its previous OTA DVR, and a much faster interface, this could be the best OTA receiver on the market.
Sony UBP-X800 review

Sony UBP-X800 review

With gorgeous 4K HDR picture and high-end audio decoding that includes support for both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, Sony’s UBP-X800 is the best Ultra HD Blu-ray player on the market right now -- and it’s more affordable than you might think. If you’re looking to take your home theater to the next level, look no further.
Google Pixel Stand

Google Pixel Stand review

Google’s new Pixel 3 smartphones can wirelessly charge, so the company is releasing its own wireless charger. But the Pixel Stand is no ordinary charger -- it’s packed with smart features that enhance your phone even when it’s out of your hands. It also makes Google Assistant far more accessible.
North Focals

North Focals hands-on preview

North, formerly known as Thalmic Labs, has unveiled a new product alongside the brand-name change. Focals is a pair of smartglasses, like Google Glass, that attempt to help keep you heads-up in the present, instead of staring down at a screen. It costs $999, and pre-orders have begun.

Garmin Vivosmart 4 review

On paper, Garmin's latest fitness band, the Vivosmart 4, hits the mark with its stylish design, a pulse ox sensor, and innovative features like body battery. How do these features measure up in real life? Are they worthwhile or a waste? We put the Garmin fitness tracker to the test to find out.

Withings Steel HR Sport Review

Withings Steel HR Sport is the new gold standard for hybrid smartwatches. It is one of the most comfortable watches we have worn and is packed to the gills with both fitness features and smart notifications. Is it the right watch for you? Read our review to find out.
fossil q venture hr

Fossil Q Venture HR review

Starting at $255, the Fossil Q Venture HR brings along top-notch health and fitness features -- including heart-rate and built-in GPS -- without having to sacrifice style for everyday wear. We take a look at what it has to offer, and take Google's newly redesigned Wear OS for a spin.

Astell & Kern SP1000M hands-on review

Astell & Kern have launched the SP1000M music player, which despite the similar name, is not only smaller, lighter, and cheaper than the SP1000 music player; but the company claims it sounds better too. An impossible formula? We tried one out to see if it’s true.
mobvoi ticwatch s review feat

Mobvoi Ticwatch S review

Mobvoi’s Ticwatch S is one of the most affordable Wear OS smartwatches on the market. For $160, you’ll not only get built-in GPS but also a heart-rate sensor -- adding more capability to your workouts and daily activity tracking. But are the features enough to look past the unique design? We take a look in our review.

The new Suunto 9 pushes the power envelope ever further delivering a mind-blowing 120 hours of continuous tracking. Does the watch live up to its hype? We went out into the wild to find out how the Suunto 9 stacks up against the competition.
Skagen Falster review

Skagen Falster review

After six months, the Skagen Falster is still our favorite Wear OS smartwatch. It doesn't have a lot of features, and it doesn't have good battery life, but we're mesmerized with how it looks -- and can't keep it off our wrist. The Falster shows the importance of design in a smartwatch. Here's our review.

Casio Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20 review

Casio’s second-generation smartwatch -- the Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20 -- features a GPS sensor, along with the same outdoor tools as last year’s model, such as an altimeter, barometer, and compass. It runs Wear OS, which means you can also access your notifications. The new WSD-F20A model adds a new color.

Samsung Galaxy Watch review

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch has almost everything and anything you’d want in a smartwatch. We’ve been wearing this watch for more than a week, and we’ve managed to stretch the battery up to four days. Say goodbye to one of the biggest pain points about smartwatches. Here’s our Galaxy Watch review.
BenQ TK800 Projector Review

BenQ TK800 Review

With gorgeous 4K picture, 3,000 lumens of brightness, and effective HDR performance, the BenQ TK800 projector is an affordable home cinema monster that you don’t have to place in a completely darkened room -- making it one of the most versatile projectors we’ve ever had the pleasure of testing.

marc jacobs riley touchscreen smartwatch review feat

Marc Jacobs Riley Touchscreen Smartwatch review

The Marc Jacobs Riley is Marc Jacobs’ first fully-touchscreen smartwatch. It runs Wear OS, has a large 1.9-inch display, and features an eye-catching design. But at $295, it’s pricier than other women’s smartwatches on the market. We take a closer look to see if this smartwatch is worth the high price tag.

Dr. Dabber Switch vaporizer review

Despite its high price tag, the Switch is a beast of a device in both size and performance. In our Switch vaporizer review, we put Dr. Dabber’s latest vaporizer, which is both concentrate and loose leaf compatible to the test. We weren’t disappointed.
Astell & Kern A&Norma SR15 review

Astell & Kern A&norma SR15 hands-on review

Just look at the Astell & Kern A&norma SR15. The design is about as quirky as they come, and the new angled screen makes it look like no other mobile device out there. Can the sound match the eye-catching looks? We’ve tried it out to see if the updated audio specs make it worth the $700 asking price.
Audi MMI Touch Infotainment

Audi MMI Touch Response infotainment review

Infotainment systems come in all shapes and sizes. Audi chose to take its newest software, MMI Touch Response, in a simpler direction by creating an intuitive interface that's smartphone-like to use. We tried the triple-screen set-up in nearly every car it comes standard in to get an idea of what it's like to use.
Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro

Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro Review

How does adding another display panel to a Wear OS smartwatch end up increasing the battery life? Amazingly, that’s what Mobvoi has achieved with the Ticwatch Pro, which has an OLED panel and an LCD panel to maximise the life out of the watch’s battery. Does it work? We’ve been wearing it to find out.
