REVIEW

Misfit Flash Link ( reef)

Misfit's entry-level fitness tracker gets the job done at a supercheap price, but its 'smart button' functions leave a lot to be desired.

REVIEW

Beddit Sleep Monitor Classic ( white)

The Beddit provides more sleep data than your average wrist tracker, but suffers from too many measurement problems to be a practical sleep solution.

REVIEW

Pebble Time Steel

Pebble's step-up all-steel smartwatch has added battery life and a more durable feel, but it's basically a tiny upgrade to the less expensive Pebble Time.

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.

Epson Runsense SF-810 ( black)

Long-distance elite athletes will appreciate the accuracy of the GPS and heart-rate, but the high price tag makes it less appealing for everyday runners.

Huawei TalkBand B2
REVIEW

Huawei TalkBand B2 ( silver/white)

Despite its unique two-in-one design -- it's a fitness tracker and Bluetooth headset -- the Huawei TalkBand B2 ultimately overpromises and underdelivers on both accounts.

REVIEW

Garmin Vivofit 2 ( pink)

The always-on display and long battery life make the Garmin Vivofit 2 an appealing alternative to the Jawbone Up2 and Fitbit Charge.

REVIEW

Pebble Time ( black)

The Pebble Time adds a few key improvements and a color screen compared to previous Pebble watches, but owners of previous Pebble watches may not see a need to upgrade yet.

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.
