In Review: Fossil Collider Hybrid Smartwatch HR

I’ve said it before, and it bears repeating – not all smartwatches are created equal. By that, I mean that while many have similar functionality, they tend to have differentiated purposes, or use cases. For instance, if you want to have something that gives you precise tracking for your workouts, you’d probably look at something like the Amazfit we recently reviewed. On the other hand, if you want something more for day-to-day, you might be thinking about an Apple Watch or something with WearOS. If battery life is the most important to you, though, I’d suggest you give some consideration to the Fossil Collider Hybrid Smartwatch HR.

In Review: AmazFit T-Rex Pro

If you recall, we brought you word of the new AmazFit T-Rex Pro last month (seen here), particularly notable for it’s sponsorship and association with the Spartan Race. While I’m not planning to take on one of those endurance-style races, I do like knowing how I’m doing in my morning jogs. So, that’s where we put the AmazFit T-Rex Pro to the test.

Go MilSpec in your workout with the Amazfit T-Rex Pro

Introducing the Polar Verity Sense

When it comes to tracking your fitness, there’s no doubt that a heart rate monitor has become an important piece of technology. There are plenty of watches that now offer this sensor (such as my trusty Polar Vantage M), but if you wanted to add a HR sensor to your existing kit, you were limited to a chest strap – that is, until the Polar Verity Sense was released last month.

In Review: Alpina AlpinerX Alive

In my mind, it was not all that long ago that I reviewed the first version of the Alpina AlpinerX – but it was. Just about 2.5 years ago, to be precise. In the watch world that doesn’t necessarily mean a long lapse of time, but in the tech and gadget world, that’s a much different story. Given that, we were quite happy to have a look at a loaner of the latest Alpina AlpinerX Alive.

Now Funding: The Newton-Rider helmet

We’ve seen a few different bicycle helmets hit the crowd-funding pages, and while I’m always intrigued, I’m also a bit wary. Buying a watch or a gadget, that’s one thing. But trusting your safety to some random company asking for your money on the internet? Well, that does give me some pause. Fortunately, for this new Newton-Rider helmet, it looks like they’ve passed some crashworthiness tests.
