LEVL hands-on: measuring fat loss with your breath [UPDATE]

People, not to mention device makers, are quickly turning to technology to make health and fitness more accessible, more understandable, and more portable. But it's one thing to know how many steps your took or how fast your hear is beating. It's a whole different case when trying to measure how much fat your body is burning. LEVL thinks it finally has a solution to that ever elusive problem. And all it will take is a single breath. It's like taking an breathalyzer test but, instead of measuring alcohol levels, you'll be on the lookout for acetone.

Livestream Movi hands-on: The next livestream star

Livestream's Movi made some big promises, claiming pro-edited footage on the fly from a palm-sized camera, but it could mark a big change in live-streaming. Launched at CES 2016 this week, it not only beams out high-def video in real-time, but turns a connected iOS device into a portable editing studio.

Samsung Galaxy TabPro S hands-on: the all-purpose “mobile station”

Today we're having a peek at the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S, a Windows 10 tablet that may be a good contender for Microsoft Surface. Back when we saw the Samsung ATIV Tab 3 in 2013, it was beginning to be clear: the "Galaxy" look was expanding beyond the borders of Android. Now here in 2016, the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S keeps the name and comes with Windows 10 in a tablet that's made to do basically anything.

Huawei Mate 8 Global edition release date and hands-on

Huawei Mate 8 Global edition release date and hands-on

This week we're having a peek at the global version of the Huawei Mate 8. This device takes all the good bits from the Huawei-made Nexus 6P and puts them into a case that's large - or larger, rather. This device works with an octa-core Kirin 950 processor with four Cortex-A72 and four Cortex-A53 CPU cores and a 6-inch, 1080p display. And it has a very, very good fingerprint scanner on its back. Too bad it's not coming to the USA - yet.

HP Pavilion x2 12″ adds USB-C and bigger screen to budget convertible

HP's Pavilion X2 proved to be a budget Windows 10 detachable tablet surprise, and now it's getting a bigger brother. Launched at CES 2016 this week, the HP Pavilion x2 12" bumps the display from 10-inches to 12-inches, but keeps the easily-docked tablet display and removable keyboard section that turns the x2 from a notebook to a slate and vice-versa.

If bigger is better then HP's new Spectre X360 15", a larger version of its coveted X360 convertible, is onto a winner. Scaling up the touchscreen Windows 10 notebook from 13.3- to 15.6-inches, the new Spectre still keeps the machined aluminum body and clever hinge design, but now offers up to 4K resolution.

Orange is the new F (Sport)

I’m sitting window on a CRJ200 to Palm Springs (CA) waiting for the crew to finish loading. I grab the American Way Magazine from the seat back in front of me and open to an anecdote on Sinatra and fashion. “Sinatra absolutely hated brown,” it said. “Orange was the happiest color,” he said.

Moto 360 Sport hands-on and first impressions: just as nice

Moto 360 Sport hands-on and first impressions: just as nice

The Android Wear smartwatch Moto 360 Sport from Motorola has arrived on our review bench this week and we've taken it on a stroll. Before our full Moto 360 Sport review begins, we've got a few points we need to go over, starting with our initial impressions. As it turns out, this watch isn't the "lesser" version of the Moto 360 that we expected it to be. In fact, the design of this piece of equipment makes us feel as though Motorola's somehow kept the finer points of the non-"sport" model Moto 360 (2015) whilst adding a more robust bit of body in its rubbery silicone "sporty" watch band.

Nokia OZO is a $60,000 360-degree camera for VR pros

Nokia may not be the first name you'd associate with virtual reality, but the Finns are aiming to make a splash with OZO, their $60k VR camera.

Lumia 950 Review part I: Continuum desktop over “phone”

Lumia 950 Review part I: Continuum desktop over “phone”

Today we're having our first look at the Microsoft Lumia 950 on the review bench, showing you just one - perhaps the most compelling - feature of the bunch: Continuum. When Microsoft first created Windows Phone, it wasn't any secret that they wanted the software to look and feel like a mobile version of what was on the way for their desktop operating system. Almost as if desktop begat mobile. Now, several years down the line, Microsoft attempts to tie the two together implicitly with a feature called Continuum.

The iPad Pro is here: Now its trial-by-fire begins

You already know it's big, and that it's powerful, but does the iPad Pro have what it takes to survive on the road as a true notebook replacement? Apple's 12.9-inch tablet is the biggest outing for iOS to-date, and just as we realized back when it was first announced, it's not only a huge deal for the Cupertino firm but a huge device period.
