Huawei TalkBand B1
REVIEW

Huawei TalkBand B1

While the TalkBand B1 is a valiant first try for Huawei, it could actually use a little more focus. While it might find a niche with some users, most people are likely to prefer dedicated individual devices instead.

REVIEW

Pebble Steel

The competition is advancing fast, but the geeky-cool, functional, and affordable Pebble Steel's conservative approach still works.

Nike+ FuelBand SE
REVIEW

Nike+ FuelBand SE ( medium/large)

The Nike+ FuelBand SE is a minor upgrade to last year's FuelBand, adding Bluetooth 4.0 and a few new motivational wrinkles to its software, but the band's design is more successful than its package of features.

Sony SmartWatch 2

With its ability to push Android notifications to your wrist, the Sony SmartWatch 2 is more useful than Samsung’s Galaxy Gear, but the Pebble is still the best smartwatch deal around.

REVIEW

Fitbug Orb ( black)

It’s hard to beat the Fitug Orb’s low price, but for $10 more, the Fitbit Zip has more features, is easier to use, and is ultimately a better buy.

Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch
REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch

Samsung's take on the smartwatch has some potential, and it does get some things right, but its inability to perform truly "smart" functions means it falls far short of expectations.

Misfit Shine
REVIEW

Misfit Shine ( jet)

The Shine is one of the most stylish and futuristic-looking wireless fitness trackers out there, but you're trading in extra versatility for minimalist style.
