The G Watch atop its charging station, sans USB cord

Gizmag's Eric Mack recently took a long, hot and humid road trip through the American south. It was a trip borne of madness and masochism, but the last week was a little bit easier than the first four. That's the week he was wearing LG's Android Wear-powered G Watch on his wrist.  Read More

Gizmag reviews the LG G3, easily one of the best smartphones of 2014

LG’s latest handset isn't looking to rewrite the book on smartphones, and we aren't even sure if that's possible at this stage. What it does want to do is dazzle your eyes with its huge, ultra-sharp display. Is that display, a more restrained take on Android and some genuinely useful features enough to make this one of the best smartphones of the year? Read on, as Gizmag reviews the LG G3.  Read More

Sena's new flagship Bluetooth headset - the 20S

Sena's outstanding Bluetooth headset range has a new flagship – the 20S. Now touting a giant 2-kilometre (1.25 mile) intercom range, the 20S also features voice control, 8-way conferencing and dual Bluetooth chips for audio multitasking, so you can keep your music playing and just duck the volume when your riding partner talks to you. We were big fans of the previous model, the SMH10, and the 20S is an incremental improvement in just about every way.  Read More

You'll hear a lot of snarky comments about Samsung's "throw everything against the wall and see what sticks" approach to consumer tech products. And perhaps rightfully so. But the flip side to that strategy is that we get to see the latest innovations not just once a year, but all year-round. Join Gizmag, as we review the latest tablet evolution to shoot out of Samsung's fire hose, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4.  Read More

Gizmag reviews Android Wear ... at the very beginning

Gizmag reviews Samsung's best smartwatch to date (by a longshot), the Gear Live

Samsung is fiercely determined to be a leader in the smartwatch space. Back when other big companies were just rumored to be planning smartwatches, Samsung actually launched one. Then, six months later, it launched not just one more, but three more. And today? Join Gizmag, as we review Samsung's third-generation Gear watch (only nine months after the first), the Android Wear-running Gear Live.  Read More

Gizmag gives Zivix's Wireless MIDI interface PUC a whirl

iOS has matured as a music-making platform in recent years, but those of us who wish to hook-up a real MIDI controller such as a keyboard or drum machine to an iPad or iPhone generally need to use a couple of cables and adapters per device.
