The Moov Now is not your typical activity tracker. Rather than monitoring your exercise and letting you know how many steps you've taken and how great you're doing, it's designed to be a personal sports coach which speaks to you while you work out. We recently spent a month being bossed around by this little puck, to see whether it's the best wearable for knocking you into shape.
If you perused our Best of CES picks this year, you may have noticed our Top Wearable was Doppler Labs' Here Active Listening earbuds. Why were we so excited about the "hearable?" Read on for our ears-on impressions from CES.
In a rapidly expanding universe, it can be hard for casual stargazers to keep track of all those stars, planets and constellations in the night sky. Universe2go tackles this task with a clever augmented reality headset and smartphone app package that instantly turned us into aspiring astronomers when we tried it out for this review.
For the third straight CES, we sat down with Avegant, makers of the Glyph personal theater. With the Avegant Glyph just about set to start shipping to the public, what we found was a much more polished headset, about to launch in a world that may need some time to warm up to it.
Although activity trackers come in a variety of shapes and types, most look like what they're assumed to be. The latest device from Misfit, however, bucks trends with a unique fashion-forward design. The Misfit Ray fitness and sleep monitor features a minimalist, cylindrical aluminum body that keeps track of personal activity no matter how it's worn.
If you've been following CES, you'll know wearables have featured heavily. Gaming specialist Razer has waded into the game with its fitness-focused Nabu, while Casio has gotten involved with an Android Wear watch. Now Fitbit is taking its fitness-first approach to the smartwatch game with Blaze, which is priced to take the fight to more established smartwatch players.
Casio has been making watches since the 70s, and the company has taken that experience into the Android Wear market with its WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch. Introduced at CES, the WSD-F10 is designed with the outdoor enthusiast in mind, featuring applications optimized for trekking, cycling and even fly fishing.
Many current activity trackers either lack easy-to-see displays, or suffer poor battery life. Withings looks to have addressed this on its new Go tracker by employing a large, low power, always-on e-ink display. The clip-on or wrist-worn device boasts an eight month battery life and automatic activity tracking whether you're walking, running or swimming.
A joint collaboration between Under Armour and HTC, the Healthbox features a fitness tracker, heart rate sensor strap and smart scale: pretty much everything you need to begin monitoring your health and lifestyle, in one red box. All your collated data feeds back into the UA Record app for Android and iOS, freshly revamped to mark the arrival of the new hardware.

Well, today at CES Unveiled we stumbled upon a company claming to have the world's first, ahem, smart shoe.
