CNET RATING (Out of 5)

3.5 stars (very good)

THE GOOD This stylish fitness tracker has swappable bands, basic phone notifications and weeklong battery life. The Move alerts bring something new. Fitbit’s software interface is excellent, and it has the largest social base as well.

THE BAD There’s no heart-rate sensor, and it can’t be worn in the shower. It’s pricey, the display is susceptible to scratches and notifications are hard to read.

THE COST $129.99

BOTTOM LINE A winning fitness tracker with solid style appeal.

APPLE WATCH

CNET RATING (Out of 5)

3.5 stars (very good)

THE GOOD This beautifully constructed, compact smartwatch features solid fitness software, hundreds of apps and the ability to send and receive calls via an iPhone.

THE BAD The battery only lasts little more than a day; most models and configurations cost more than they should; requires an iPhone 5 or later to work; interface can be confusing.

THE COST $649

BOTTOM LINE An ambitious, well-constructed smartwatch. The smaller 38-mm model recently received a price cut to $299.
