Your Fitbit can't tell when you're angry yet, but it may soon know when your blood pressure spikes

Fitbit has been expanding the range of its tracking sensors since well before its acquisition by Google. Just last month, the company added support for monitoring blood oxygen saturation and skin temperature to the Charge 4, but now it's looking to expand beyond surface-level information.

Fossil Gen 5 LTE Review: Rehashing last year's hardware

Google's Wear OS is not in the best state right now, but it's serviceable if you want a smartwatch that integrates deeply with your phone. When you decide to make do with Wear OS, Fossil is usually there to offer an array of acceptable devices.

Three Motorola Wear OS watches planned for 2021, at least one with Snapdragon Wear 4100

Motorola has been out of the smartwatch game since 2016, but in late 2019, a manufacturer called eBuyNow released a Wear OS watch licensing the old Moto 360 product name. The end result was a decent (if overpriced) watch, and now eBuyNow is planning three more to be released this year.
