Video review: Evolve 2 in 1 Carbon Series electric skateboard

By - April 20, 2015 28 Pictures
Jeff Anning was scoping out waves at his local surf spot back in 2008 when somebody buzzed past him on a motorized long board. In that moment the seed for what was to become Evolve Skateboards was planted. Since the launch of its own first generation Electric Pintail in 2012, Evolve has continued to refine its idea of what electric skateboards should be. This most recently culminated in the 2 in 1 Carbon Series, which has gone on to become the company's biggest seller by some margin. We have spent the last few weeks cruising the streets with this zippy little number, and apart from having a hell of a time, we found it to be a more than practical way of getting around. Read More

By - April 20, 2015 20 Pictures
After more than four years of identical-looking MacBook Airs, Apple finally made a next-generation MacBook that ticks all those boxes we've been asking for. The "new MacBook" is lighter and thinner than the Air, but also has a Retina Display like its bigger "Pro" sibling. But is this laptop ready for primetime? Join Gizmag, as we review the new 12-inch Retina MacBook. Read More

Review: The T10 in-ear headphones from RHA

By - April 20, 2015 10 Pictures
In November last year, British headphone maker Reid Heath Audio (RHA) released a new flagship in-ear headphone model called the T10i that featured interchangeable tuning filters which altered the frequency response from the company's reference signature to focus on either lows or highs. The high fidelity, noise isolating earphones went on to earn the company a Red Dot Award in the Product Design category. RHA has recently added a sibling that's sonically the same but doesn't have an inline control and is a little cheaper, and it's this T10 model that Gizmag has been taking for a test drive. Read More

Review: Sena Prism Bluetooth motorcycle action camera

By - April 16, 2015 21 Pictures
Sena's excellent 20S Bluetooth headset is my daily driver these days, and now there's an action camera to go with it. The Prism is a 1080p/30 fps camera designed specifically for motorcycle use, and it links up with the 20S to take advantage of the headset's audio capabilities. While it's not yet perfect, it delivers good quality vision, outstanding audio and a motorcycle-focused mount kit that deserves a lot of praise. Read More

By - April 9, 2015 39 Pictures
With the almost inevitable rise of smartwatches (which still hasn't quite hit the mainstream), the humble fitness tracker could soon have a hard time justifying its demands on your wrist real-estate.

But is a smart(er) fitness tracker a smart buy? Gizmag recently spent a bit of time with one on our wrist to find out. Read More

Review: The all-terrain, all-powerful Dominator Pro electric skateboard

By - April 6, 2015 26 Pictures
Every time an electric skateboard crosses our desk here at Gizmag, it seems to be because somebody clever has worked out a way to make them lighter, run for longer, or fold up in some weird shape that we've never seen before. One glance at the latest addition to Epic Skateboard's lineup and it's pretty obvious that the team wasn't all that concerned with building a commuter-friendly transport option you can slide under the bus seat. The four-wheel-drive Dominator 3200 Pro is the most powerful skateboard the Australian company has ever produced, so it was with equal parts excitement and trepidation that we fired it up and took it to for a spin.
