The Honor Band 6 looks more like a smartwatch but for a fraction of the cost

The Honor Band 6 looks more like a smartwatch but for a fraction of the cost

Honor’s range of fitness trackers probably receives the most attention in the budget segment, topped only by Xiaomi's Mi Bands. Until the Band 5, Honor stuck to a pretty traditional design, but that changes this year. The all-new Band 6 comes with a bigger casing that looks more like a smartwatch than a discreet fitness tracker. That radical facelift also means you’ll have to shell out more money this year, but it's still a steal given the bigger display.

Samsung Health to go on a diet and lose weight and calorie management

People relying on Samsung Health as their one-stop solution for tracking their health may have to look elsewhere soon. As SamMobile found out, German Samsung Health users are currently receiving end-of-service notices, telling them that the app will lose support for caffeine intake tracking and weight and calorie management, starting with version 6.11 on Android and 4.1 on smartwatches. This update will almost certainly reach people in other territories soon enough, too.

Puma Smartwatch review: Last year's rebranded Fossil Sport will have you running for a different watch

When you hear the word ”smartwatch,” the last name that probably comes to mind is PUMA. Despite all other major athletic brands having thrown their weight behind wearable tech — like the Under Armour Samsung Galaxy Watch, Nike Apple Watch, and Adidas Fitbit Ionic — PUMA has remained out of the wearables race… that is until the PUMA Smartwatch made its debut at IFA 2019 as the newest Fossil partner. I’ve been wearing the PUMA-branded Wear OS device for the last two weeks, and there are some things you should know before strapping one around your wrist.

Withings is back with the Steel HR Sport, a hybrid smartwatch with advanced multisport tracking

Withings is back with the Steel HR Sport, a hybrid smartwatch with advanced multisport tracking

Although its watches don't run Wear OS, we've followed Withings closely for a few reasons. For one, it makes beautiful minimalist watches with some smart fitness tracking features added in (I own an Activité Steel and I love it). The French company has also been in the news a lot due to Nokia acquiring it, turning it into its Digital Health Division, and then selling it back to its co-founder.

The first product to be released since all of that is the Steel HR Sport, another hybrid smartwatch with a small OLED display that can show your phone notifications, fitness data, and alarm settings, but this time it has more advanced activity tracking features.
