By now, Fitbit is coming close to being synonymous with “activity tracker” and the brand name is occasionally tossed around as a generic term to describe any similar device. That does mean the company has a lot to live up to in terms of delivering solid devices that meet the expectations of buyers. One of those devices that was released this past year was the Fitbit Blaze which is ostensibly the company’s top of the line device and probably comes closest to merging the Fitbit activity tracking expertise with pseudo-smartwatch capabilities.
After spending some time with the Fitbit Blaze, we put together this review to help you decide whether this might be the trail you want to blaze for an activity tracker purchase. Read more

Tablets are often some of the most overlooked devices when it comes to Android. Tablets as a whole aren’t used nearly as much as phones, but they’re still excellent to have around.

You’ve heard all of the standard names when it comes to smartwatches — Huawei, Samsung, LG, Moto, TAG Heuer and so many more. But, one you probably haven’t heard of is Mobvoi, one of the first Chinese companies Google has backed since leaving the country in 2010. With that in mind, we’re a little intrigued about what the company has to offer, especially after its successful Kickstart campaign over and abundantly funded the development of its new smartwatch, the Ticwatch 2.
It’s not running Android Wear, but that’s largely because many of Google’s services aren’t available in China. Instead, it’s running a spinoff of Android — Ticwear 4.0. Sure, it makes you question where the watch is worth picking up or not, but you actually might be surprised.
