Sensoria Fitness Smart Sock
REVIEW

Sensoria Fitness Smart Sock

While Sensoria makes a case for using smart socks to meticulously track runners' data, these smart socks need to improve on almost every count of design and data presentation to justify their cost.

REVIEW

Garmin Nuvi 2689 LMT

The Garmin Nuvi 2689 LMT is a strong performing navigator with loads of smart features that help reduce driver errors and distraction, but in a world filled to the brim with smartphone nav apps, most will never know its charms.

REVIEW

Pioneer AVIC 5000NEX Navigation System

Pioneer's flagship AVIC 8000NEX boasts dozens of media and navigation options -- including the first aftermarket appearance of Apple CarPlay -- but most users will find a better feature-to-cost balance lower in the brand's NEX lineup.

REVIEW

Magellan SmartGPS

The Magellan SmartGPS bridges a gap between connected navigation apps and car-friendly GPS hardware with its ability to sync with the cloud and connect to the Web via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, but its busy interface could use fewer moving parts.

REVIEW

Magellan RoadMate 9055-LM

The Magellan RoadMate 9055-LM is a great navigator for those who think that size matters, but laggy performance causes it to fall behind much of its smaller competitors.

Motorola MotoActv GPS Fitness Tracker and Music Player
REVIEW

Motorola MotoActv GPS Fitness Tracker and Music Player ( 8GB)

Motorola's incredibly capable MotoActv fitness device can tackle just about any fitness task--such as tracking workouts via GPS and connecting to headsets via Bluetooth--and it serves as a very tiny digital music player. Yet, if you're looking for a simple tool to measure daily activity and provide holistic advice on how to shed some pounds, this training tool isn't for you.

LBT PocketFinder personal GPS locator

The PocketFinder is the simplest to use of the personal GPS locators that we've tested, requiring no interaction from the user on a day-to-day basis, but you'll pay a bit more in the long run for that.

REVIEW

Sony XNV-770BT

Rather than reinvent the wheel, Sony's newest all-in-one car audio receiver pairs a brilliant 7-inch display with GPS navigation powered by TomTom. The result is almost the best of both worlds, but we'd like to see a bit more integration.
