Jawbone Up3
REVIEW

Jawbone Up3 ( black)

The Up3 is one of the smallest super-slim fitness bands around, but its lack of a display and limited heart rate tracking aren't worth the high price.

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 7000NEX 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

Garmin vívofit ( slate)

Fitbit One
REVIEW

Fitbit One

The Fitbit One is a feature-rich pedometer, but the wristband-style Jawbone Up and Fitbit’s own Flex are more convenient and much better deals.

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.

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.

Fitbit Ultra
REVIEW

Fitbit Ultra ( plum)

The Ultra extends Fitbit's already impressive personal fitness data measurement abilities, but for the same $99.95 price. Already a high-tech pedometer, the Ultra now has an altimeter to record stairs climbed, too. It isn't as advanced as more expensive mobile fitness gadgets, but the tiny device is easy to wear all day long and fun to use.

REVIEW

Motorola MotoActv GPS Fitness Tracker and Music Player ( 16GB)

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.
