Review: Fitbit Blaze fitness tracker

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

While dressed up to look very much like a premium smartwatch, Fitbit's new Blaze fitness tracker is actually a fashion-focused personal fitness and motivational gadget that brings elegance and versatility to a device that can easily tap the powerful Fitbit cloud and app ecosystem.

Fitbit is the the first name that comes to mind when considering fitness trackers. The company has been at it for a number of years and has expanded and iterated its wireless pedometers and fitness devices into a ful-blown line of products catering to various user needs.

Review: Apple Watch 

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla 

Apple Watch offers a distillation of the iPhone’s hallmark features so users can opt to use their iPhones less. The Watch can make or take calls, receive notifications, as well as get mirrored push alerts just like the competitor’s devices, but it can also do so much more.

Apple’s newest product category represents various milestones for the company. It’s the first new product category to come out of Cupertino under Tim Cook as CEO. It is the first major project undertaken by Jony Ive without Steve Jobs, it is the company’s first wearable and it is seen as the necessary replacement to the diminishing iPod product line.

webOS returns to mobile as a smart watch OS

LG has had the good sense to make good use of webOS as a Smart Watch operating system. The once pioneering Palm mobile OS was recently used in LG's Smart TVs and now it seems there's an earnest move to create webOS SmartWatch for developers.

One one hand, it's great to see webOS back in some form but on the other hand, manufacturers spinning off their non Android Wear wearable operating systems (Samsung's got Tizen), means fragmentation in the still-emerging wearable market. This could pose some issues for users and also for developers choosing alliances. This also tells us that manufacturers aren't keen in having Google control the whole ecosystem.
