Verge score: 5.5

The Hauwei B! is a fitness tracker that pops out of its band and into your ear to act as a Bluetooth 4.1 headset. The fitness aspect of the TalkBand is pretty limited; it'll measure your steps, tell you how many hours you sleep for, and estimate how many calories you burn each day.

Description

The new Gear Fit is a downsized version of its smartwatch siblings, with a focus on tracking your heart rate and counting your steps. It can receive all of your smartphone's notifications and alerts. The focus is clearly on fitness, however, as the Fit includes a real-time fitness coach to encourage you to speed up or slow down via alerts, the ability to measure your heart rate in real time, and syncing with Samsung's S Health apps on Galaxy smartphones.

Sony's SmartBand is the first product powered by the company's new Core fitness tracker – which itself is waterproof (despite an exposed USB port) and extremely light. SmartBand will measure your sleep cycle to wake you at the ideal time each morning, and it will also notify you about incoming calls, texts, and Facebook and Twitter activity. Since there's no screen on the tiny Core, Sony does all of this with vibrations.
