Bose Frames review: Look better than they sound

Bose Frames review: Look better than they sound

I've always been really interested in fun products — even if the product isn't remotely practical or "good" in the traditional sense. Sometimes a truly bleeding-edge device can give us a glimpse of the future, regardless of its flaws. That's what made me interested in the new Bose Frames when they were released a few weeks ago.

The idea of Bose Frames is to combine sunglasses and earbuds into one product by putting directional speakers in the temple of the shades right above the ear. They are the most unusual audio gimmick I've seen in a long time, and the interesting design and genuine enjoyment I get from this product makes it hard to regret my purchase.

Fitbit Sense review: Jack of all trades, master of none

Fitbit Sense review: Jack of all trades, master of none

In the era before modern smartwatches, Fitbit's name became synonymous with wearable fitness trackers. Full-fledged smartwatches have become the norm as consumers have demanded more and more from wearables, and Fitbit stepped in with the Ionic and Versa smartwatches a few years ago. I had high hopes that Fitbit would continue to improve and provide Android users a viable alternative to the increasingly frustrating Wear OS experience, but the Sense has some of the same shortcomings and bugs I remember from the Ionic. The Sense also has its own raft of new glitches that I find equally annoying. At the same time, Fitbit promises this watch can do so many things!

Xiaomi Mi Band 5 review: Bang-up budget band

Xiaomi Mi Band 5 review: Bang-up budget band

Xiaomi's Mi Band series has won fans by offering a lot of fitness features for not a lot of money. That formula isn't changing with the latest entry, the Mi Band 5. It looks almost identical to its predecessors but makes some notable improvements: There's finally magnetic charging so you don't have to pry the device out of the band anymore, the screen is a little bigger, and the tracking is a bit more accurate.

The Mi Band 5 might not compete with high-end trackers and smartwatches from Garmin or Fitbit, but it doesn’t have to.

OnePlus Watch is reportedly in the making

OnePlus Watch is reportedly in the making

OnePlus has grown popular by making affordable phones and has more recently started designing accessories, such as its $80 buds. The company is reportedly continuing to work on releasing more than just handsets, as a new listing has appeared referring to a product called the OnePlus Watch.

Singapore's IMDA regulatory body lists a device called the OnePlus Watch on its Telecoms Licensing System, which doesn't reveal much, besides the model number being W301GB. Despite the lack of information, it's likely for the smartwatch to run Google's Wear OS and be powered by Snapdragon's new Wear 4100 SoC. In fact, the new chip and Google's upcoming Wear OS update might have convinced the OnePlus team the platform was mature enough for them to launch a smartwatch.
