The Fitbit Versa is a prettier, cheaper version of the company's first true smartwatch, the Ionic. It lacks built-in GPS and NFC payments, but you'll save $100 if you opt for the new watch over the original. Fitbit promises you'll get "four-plus" days out of its battery, and, indeed, the watch only conked out after close to five days of use, during which it tracked at least two workouts and four nights of sleep.
Acer has unveiled the first Chrome OS tablet, the Chromebook Tab 10, and there's nary a keyboard to be found. The 9.7-inch slate is aimed squarely at education, where the all-touch input and light weight (1.21 pounds) could make it a better fit for younger students. For now, Acer is only making the $329 tablet available to commercial and education customers.
Prepare for another significant smart-home entrant: Foxconn. Its ticket to the event is an $866 million purchase of Belkin. Belkin not only makes its own devices and accessories, it also owns other brands you may be familiar with, like Linksys (routers), WeMo (home automation) and Phyn (water monitoring). Of course, we won't call it done until the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States approves -- just ask Broadcomm how that can go.
The new Insight has very little to do with the funky original Insight (1999 to 2006) and a later model produced between 2009 and 2014, other than they're all hybrids. It's a sedan rather than a hatchback, for one, and looks much more, er, conventional than the others. With 151 total horsepower and a lightweight structure, it offers the best power-to-weight ratio in its class, Honda says, along with a 55 mpg city mileage rating.
