    Up by Jawbone fitness band pictures and hands-on

    By 20 March 2013

    The Up was always a very cool idea, and when we reviewed it just before it was first due to launch in the UK, we loved it. The simple design, long battery life and beautiful iOS app all made it a cunning package, and more than just a standard pedometer....

    Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale review

    By 18 July 2012

    Digital devices are so woven into the fabric of today’s society that there’s little that isn’t now possible. We’re all used to TVs, computers and the like - you know, the usual couch potato kind of kit - but recently it’s health and fitness...

    By 24 February 2012

    We know you are the kind of person that likes to work out, we know that you are the kind of person that can't be bothered to go to the gym, we know that your time is precious and that any chance to multitask is gratefully welcomed. In steps the professional-grade...

    Radiopaq Flex earphones hands-on and in-ears

    By 13 February 2011

    One member of team Pocket-lint is quite the athletic type. He laughs in the face of triathlons and knocks-out marathon-length jogs on Sunday mornings for fun. Unfortunately, this writer is not that team-member and is instead a rather lazy individual who...

    Garmin Approach S1 GPS golf watch hands-on

    By 29 December 2010

    Did you watch the European golfers take on and tame the Americans at Celtic Manor in October and rush out to buy yourself a set of clubs, thinking that golf-malarkey couldn't be all that hard? Did you crash back down to earth (or rather, a bunker) when...

    Specialized Armadillo tyres review

    By 16 March 2007

    We don’t like to do things by halves at Pocket-lint. So when the challenge to test a set of tyres came along, we had to “think outside the box”. Well, not that far outside the box. We fitted the Armadillos to a London commuter and asked him to ride...

    Zoggs Predator Wiro-Frame goggles review

    By 2 March 2007

    You might wonder how you can review a set of goggles, afterall, if they keep the water out of your eyes and are comfortable, then surely that is all there is to say? Well yes and no. Of course, we wouldn’t write a review about a set of goggles that...

    X-Clip Sports Armband review

    By 8 February 2007

    I’ve always been sceptical of people running with their nano - afterall, running is a wonderful symbiosis of man and nature, the chance to explore your freedom in the open environment. But no, this is Pocket-lint, and our aim is to gadgetify the (un)modern...

    Some say that fit is the new rich and JML think that their Fitness Watch is just the job for helping you on your way and beating that post-Christmas bulge. But does it have what it takes? We take it out for a run to find out. The Fitness Watch from JML...

    Anquet Maps review

    By 13 November 2006

    The key to a good romp through the countryside is planning. Planning your route can be almost as big a part of a country ramble as the walking itself. Anquet believe they have the software for the job; we pull on our walking boots to find out. Anquet...

    Keen to break your neck? Thought you were. Then you want the Powerisers Jumping Stilts. You've probably seen the YouTube videos of guys running around leaping in the air, doing triple somersaults and back flips. Well it’s the Powerisers that allow you...
