It's hard to fight nature. We mammals have an instinctual urge to hibernate when the mercury starts dropping, and thanks to activity trackers we have some data to prove that theory holds true (if we actually get that sleep is another story). By correlating pedometer stats culled from \"hundreds of

There's no denying that the wearable craze is upon us, whether we like it or not. MC10 is quite familiar with employing sensors to deliver info on training and athlete performance, and it's looking to do even more. If you'll recall, the outfit was behind the Checklight -- developed alongside Reebo

When it comes to jewelry, some folks prefer gold to silver. After debuting its Moto 360 smartwatch in black and silver options, it appears a champagne-hued model is on the way from Motorola. Tipped a brief appearance on Amazon, the $300 wearable sports a matching metal band to complete the look. I

Nearly a year after Fitbit revealed its last fitness gadget, it looks like its next devices will be called Charge. The wearables passed through the FCC revealing the moniker and designation as a \"wireless activity tracker.\" Thanks to a USPTO filing, we can glean that it'll carry the usual waterpro

One of the nice things about operating the world's biggest online retail store, besides the money, is that you can get a real-time picture of what consumers around the globe want. Amazon's used that insight to launch its own e-readers, tablets and a smartphone in the past, and it's certainly not s

Sweaters, jackets and long johns are all \"wearables\" that keep us warm, but they aren't all that smart -- if you walk into a room that's too hot or exercise too hard, you need to stop using them to cool down. It's an inconvenience we've grown used to, but we don't have to put up with it much longe

Can you name them all? It's been merely a year since Samsung revealed its first smartwatch to the tech press crowds in IFA, Berlin. Then, roughly six months later, the company switched software -- and, ugh, gear -- with three new wearable models, the Gear 2, the (possibly most forgotten) Gear Neo

A handful of new smartwatches unveiled at IFA and beyond (we're looking at you, Moto 360 and Apple Watch) are already making some still newish models look a little long in the tooth. Take LG's poor G Watch for instance - it's only been on the market for about two months and it's already got a roun

Looking for a good way to alienate potential customers? Well, there's always the tried and true method: lock your device down to a specific carrier. Intel's MICA (My Intelligent Communication Accessory) $1,000 ballpark price tag and snakeskin coverings were bound to limit its customer base, but th

Long rumored and eagerly awaited, the Apple Watch is now a reality. It's certainly not the first smartwatch on the block, but could it be the best? The features look impressive, but we'll still need to get one on our wrist and write a full review. In the meantime, there's always the specs to look

September is a month synonymous with the beginning of autumn, but it's also become associated with something else entirely: The iPhone. Today, we're in attendance at the Flint Center in Cupertino to hear about the latest products and updates from Apple, and we're expecting at least four new device
