Fitbit Flex 2 review: Fitbit jumps in the pool for the first time and doesn't drown

For the past 4 years, I've been wearing a Fitbit device of some sort. I started with the One, which stuck with me for the better part of 3 years, then I tried the Blaze, the Alta, and the Charge 2. My main complaint with each of these trackers was the lack of water-resistance, which meant that I couldn't wear them in the pool or track my swims with them. I've tried several swim trackers including the Misfit Shine 2 Swim Edition and Amiigo, looking for something that could replace Fitbit, but the best that I found was the Garmin vivoactive, which has excellent swim tracking and can send the main stats to Fitbit through MyFitnessPal.

Review: Doom Eternal is a grisly delight on Stadia

Five months in, Stadia is, ever slowly, packing its library with more and more quality titles. With the release of Doom Eternal earlier this month, the platform hit a major milestone: its first major AAA game to launch day-and-date with PC and consoles. Should you be lacking the local hardware horsepower to bust demon skulls but you're reluctant to stream a game as notoriously fast-paced as Doom, I'm happy to report that, if your network is up to snuff, Eternal runs wonderfully on Google's cloud platform. It's also an intense and immensely gratifying experience.

Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra case review roundup: Top brands, best values, and more

The Galaxy S20 series is incredibly expensive, with the S20 Ultra starting at an eye watering $1,399. When you're carrying something that cost more than my first car in your pocket, it's important to keep it safe. Glass sandwiches may look beautiful, but that beauty can easily be obscured by scuffs, scratches, and cracks. The best way to prevent that from happening is by using a skin or case to protect your precious new phone.

Oppo has announced the long-awaited follow up to the Find X at an event in London that was originally planned to have taken place at MWC. Two new models have been unveiled, with the Find X2 and Pro variant sharing mostly the same spec sheet but for a few key differentiators.

The Galaxy S20's fast charging isn't just quick, it's verifiably safer thanks to new certification

It's one thing to push a crazy amount of power to a device, it's entirely another to do it safely. Thankfully for those of you planning to get a Galaxy S20, the USB-IF has just rubber-stamped the whole Galaxy S20 series as "Fast Charger Certified." When plugged into similarly certified USB accessories and chargers, you can rest a little bit easier knowing that all those watts it's sucking down won't go terribly wrong.

Galaxy Z Flip review: It's almost time to throw away your old, boring, non-folding phone

The progress we've made with folding phones in just the last year is stunning. We went from teasing the concept behind a glass box to several shipping products in just about no time, culminating almost precisely one year later in this: the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. It's a folding vision from the future, loaded with flaws and bent like a scythe in preparation of the Flat Phone Reaping. Even if you don't buy the Z Flip (and you shouldn't), your current phone's days are numbered.
