In the world of wearables, Fitbit is one of the most common names – it has achieved near ubiquity with the term ‘fitness trackers’, which in turn has helped it become the obvious leader in the market. It helps that Fitbit has something for everyone – from the minimalistic, swim-proof Flex 2, to the sleek, fashionable Alta, and from the do-it-all Charge 2, to the bulky Blaze; the only model with a colour display.

Like many automotive enthusiast contingents, Jeep fanatics tend to be a pretty vocal bunch. In recent years, there was a growing sentiment among them that – with the exception of the Wrangler – the Jeep lineup had gone soft, opting to cater to customers wanted a convincing aesthetic but had no intention of actually taking their vehicles off the beaten path (short of occasionally barreling over a median in a tight parking lot).

Those enthusiasts might’ve pointed their finger at the previous generation of the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, a package that ultimately stayed within safe distance of the standard soft-roader Grand Cherokee equation while raising the asking price by a significant margin.

While the PC industry as a whole is shrinking and tech companies seem focused either on thinner, lighter devices or pushing prices down at any cost, there's a tiny sliver of the market that doesn't care for either of these things. This is the power user segment, and this is where you look when you want the absolute best performance possible, and when money is no object. Such products aren't always easy to find, especially in India, and they exist well beyond the usual scale of most people's budgets.

In tech, two years is a long time to wait for a new product. But that’s how long GoPro took to introduce its new flagship camera, the Hero5 Black ($399), and naturally, expectations were high. In truth, we weren’t aching for a new Hero camera because the preceding Hero4 models are still very good. What could GoPro add that would make us want to trade up to the new camera?

The answer? A lot, and many of the new features are designed to make the camera much more convenient to use. The Hero5 Black still captures great videos and photos, but now you have benefits like voice control, image stabilization, and durability. Services and apps make it easier to pull content off the camera, edit them into short videos, and share them online. It’s a better camera, and it will make you wish you had the features in the Hero4 Black, not to mention a cheaper list price at launch.

Much like the sun rising in the East and Apple unleashing a new iPhone, EA has graced us with yet another entry in the long-running FIFA series. And like every FIFA game before it, FIFA 17 promises to be the best game in the franchise ever. Well, until next year’s edition anyway. But is it really any good or simply more of the same? We find out.

OUR EARLY VERDICT

With the arrival of Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a built-in EVF and touchscreen interface, the EOS M5 looks like Canon might have finally come good with a mirrorless camera.

When I spoke to Hasselblad's CEO, Perry Oosting, at the launch of the H6D he made it pretty clear that its next camera would be more affordable to attract keen enthusiast photographers as well as pros. And while few would argue that the X1D is cheap for $8,995 , it's 'attractively priced' in Hasselblad terms.

"What's the best nearly waterproof, dustproof and shatterproof phone you can buy? Asking for a friend." I hear this question all of the time, and it's now easier to answer with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active.

The S7 Active is a rugged Android phone that takes everything we loved about the Samsung Galaxy S7 and wraps it into a much tougher package that's easier to grip and harder to break, just like last year's Samsung Galaxy S6 Active.

There's a saying that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery – but not for Asus. The ZenBook 3 is the Taiwanese electronics firm's latest 12.5 inch MacBook-killing Ultrabook. It doesn't just so much imitate as it does completely destroy Apple's ultrathin laptop in specs and price.

The initial moments of the third instalment of this year's Hitman reminds us of 2012's Hitman: Absolution. No, not in its oddball grindhouse feel, but rather with a sprawling, densely atmospheric level design that's reminiscent of Hitman: Absolution's China Town, which was filled with a host of non-playable characters (NPCs), assassination opportunities, and a whole lot more. But does it go beyond that? Surprisingly so and here's why.
