The Galaxy Watch 4 Is the First Good Android Smartwatch

I admit I’ve begun to give up hope that Android smartwatches would ever improve.

But the tech giant’s ambitions stretch into many domains that touch human lives these days. Including, most directly, healthcare. And — it turns out — so does Google’s tendency to kill off products that its PR has previously touted as ‘life saving’. To wit: Following a recent reconfiguration of Google’s health efforts — reported...

Rebuild stronger with Fitbit Premium and Daily Readiness

At Fitbit, the way we think about fitness has evolved and expanded beyond mere physical strength. Today, many of us are far more eager to understand our wellness holistically, versus how many burpees we can do in a minute or comparing how much weight we can bench press. Sure, being physically strong is one depiction of strength, but this past year in particular has taught us that we need to be strong in other areas as well. Taking care of ourselves means knowing when to push ourselves to go to t...
