Unihertz Atom hands-on: Rugged tiny 4G smartphone keeps you connected in the field for less than $300

Many people who work outside or participate in outdoor activities wrap their glass sandwich smartphones in bulky rugged cases and hope for the best during their adventures. With the upcoming Unihertz Atom you can rest easy and carry a phone that fits within a single hand. I can nearly completely enclose my hand around the Unihertz Atom and have been biking, running, working, and commuting with a sample device for the past week. It’s rather stunning how much power Unihertz…

OnePlus is most known for its “flagship killer” phones like the OnePlus 6, but the company also makes headphones – the best example of which are the company’s excellent Bullets in-ears.  For OnePlus, the next logical step is to create a wireless version of its Bullets headphones, and that’s exactly what they’ve done with the Bullets Wireless. For $70 (£70, about AU$124), the OnePlus Bullets Wireless offer an incredible value in the neck-bud headphone category. Sure, true wireless headphones are…

Asus VivoWatch BP hands on review

Wearables may not have made the mark they were expected to, but companies aren’t giving up. On Tuesday at Computex 2018, Asus unveiled the Asus VivoWatch BP, a tiny, almost toy-like device that can measure your blood pressure.  That blood pressure monitoring feature is what Asus is marketing on this one because, really, there’s nothing much to market about it otherwise. In fact, the Asus executive who demoed the watch for me said the company doesn’t even have the final…

Z-Edge Z4 Dash Cam review: This bargain dash cam only lacks GPS

The Zero Edge Z-Edge Z4 dash cam has an evocative moniker, and it doubles down on aesthetic appeal. But handsome is as handsome does, and it’s the high-quality day video captures, HDR, and available super-wide 2560×1080 resolution that seal the deal. The major omission is GPS, but that’s not unusual in this price range (the Z4 is $89.95 on Amazon). Design and specs The Z4 is one of the better-looking dash cams you’ll run across, with a 2.7-inch color LCD…

I have the opportunity to review a ton of products here on ZDNet and while most are excellent and achieve ratings of 8/10 or higher, it is rare that I judge something to be perfect. However, WaterField Designs has achieved that with its newest backpack. As a person who commutes about 40 miles each way to and from Seattle by walking, cycling, and riding on a train, my preferred gear bag is a backpack. According to Gary WaterField, there are…

Sennheiser CX 6.00BT Wireless Earphones review

Sennheiser has long held a pedigree for enabling people to bob their heads to great sound. Straddling the line between audiophiles and more casual listeners, the company aims to appeal to a wide range of listeners while maintaining a high standard of audio quality, and are always worth a listen. At this price, the CX 6.00BT only add to the intrigue. There is a barebones quality to these Bluetooth wireless earphones we could appreciate. Sennheiser likes to look a little…
