There was a strong showing of health-related gadgets at the IFA Global Press Conference this year, so the brand new Fitbit Versa was the perfect wearable to shine a light on.

It seem like 2018 is going to be a hot year for wearables after all, just not the kind you wear on your wrist. Just a few days ago, Bose was busy showing off their audio focused glasses at SXSW.

Bragi is a company that prides themselves on being the creators of the world’s first hearable. Since then there have been many imitators, and some brands, even Apple who’ve attempted to take a blueprint written by Bragi and right their wrongs. The true test though, is can Bragi do this themselves? Once upon a time, there was a Kickstarter that…
Fitness trackers sound good on paper, but the reality is they only measure one tiny slice of fitness. Cardio and steps are important, but they aren’t a full picture. Humon is a new wearable that seeks to rectify that by measuring muscle endurance instead of steps, and it’s a pretty brilliant concept!
Fitbit hardware has only gained in popularity in recent years. The company is on a roll and is now making their wearables even more powerful through new software tools. These tools deliver personalized insights, smarter guidance and more motivation to people rocking a Fitbit.

Pebble, once the crown jewel of Kickstarter, has officially folded as a viable company. They have sold some assets to Fitbit, and are in the process of refunding any outstanding Kickstarter orders. This is a sad day, since Pebble was an early smartwatch pioneer, and made some excellent watches.
As much as I hate to admit it, the holidays are fast approaching, and it will soon be time to figure out which gifts to give to our favorite friends and loved ones. For your consideration, I offer the new Huawei Fit. It’s not a full Android Wear smartwatch, but it is definitely smarter than the average fitness tracker.
Much as I hate to admit it, I have a tendency to allow myself to get stressed out. I first notice it in my shoulders, then it spreads to my head and, if left unchecked, results in a pounding headache. I didn’t have much hope that the Spire Activity and Mindfulness Tracker would make that big of a difference …

The Verge reported on some ominous news from Pebble today; they’re apparently laying off 25% of their staff. Combine that with a competitive wearables market, and it doesn’t look great for Kickstarter’s biggest success story.
CES is now over and activity trackers and other wearables were all the rage at the show this year. With Under Armour, Casio, and others releasing devices, it looks like almost everyone has a tracker now. Avia, who I know more for sneakers than electronics even has one, and they sent me an Avia Stride; I am underwhelmed.
Pebble promised when they rolled out a new user interface that it would reach the first generation Pebble and Pebble Steel by the end of the year. They’re cutting it a bit close, but with two weeks to go they’ve finally announced that the original Pebbles could share in the new software with their Time siblings!
Motorola blogged today detailing the release of the new Moto 360 Sport. If you’re in the UK or France, you can grab yours starting December 18th, and in the USA, they’ll be hitting January 7th for $299.
