My search for the perfect pair of headphones will probably never end. Especially since so many in-ear headphones simply refuse to fit my ears. It was particularly painful for me when I first tried on Samsung’s Gear IconX truly wireless earbuds because they simply wouldn’t fit.
But Samsung has refreshed their rocky first attempt at truly wireless in-ear headphones. These are the Gear IconX 2018 and right off the bat, I’m happy to report they fit far better than the originals.

While Apple has its new Series 3 Watch, Samsung would like to remind you that they have a swim-proof smartwatch of their own. Ahead of its commercial availability, Samsung has released its first Gear Sport video to highlight some of its key fitness features.

Apart from announcing the Ionic smartwatch, Fitbit has also revealed their first fitness in-ear headphones that’s called the Fitbit Flyer. Designed for those with an active lifestyle, the Fitbit Flyer is wireless and it is both sweat and splash resistant.
As if it wasn’t clear enough that Huawei’s all about fitness with their wearables, the Chinese company has unveiled yet another pair of fitness-centric smart wearables and they’re designed to take on Fitbit’s Charge 2. Meet the Huawei Band 2 and Band 2 Pro.
To me, fitness trackers should be as discrete as possible. The more comfortable and unobtrusive it is, the more likely I will wear it. So, when Fitbit launched the brand new Alta HR today, I was definitely looking forward to seeing if it could take the place of the Charge 2 on my wrist.
What do you get when you take an audio device, give it touch controls, make it as small as humanly possible and stick some fitness tracking functions on it? The Samsung Gear IconX.
We’re seeing all kinds of smart things recently. Besides the usual smartphone and smartwatch, you’ve also got stuff like a smart fridge, smart air purifier, smart suitcase and even a smart rice cooker.

Pebble is giving its users something special ahead of the year-end festivities. With the latest Firmware 3.8 update, the new Pebble Time lineup is getting Pebble Health, a native fitness tracking feature developed with researchers at Stanford University. Before this, Pebble users would need to rely on third-party apps such as Jawbone Up and Misfit for their activity tracking needs.
Samsung is making its S Health app available to all Android users. The proprietary fitness and activity tracking application used to be exclusive only to Galaxy devices but now you can download it on Android devices running on Android 4.4 KitKat and above.
