WIRED senior associate reviews editor Adrienne calls the Series 8 “far and away the best fitness tracker if you have an iPhone” in our Best Fitness Trackers guide. In addition to its strong focus on workout views, running metrics, medication logging and sleep tracking, the Series 8 adds new body temperature sensors that track menstrual cycles, and Crash Detection in the event of a car accident.
We called this fitness tracker the best triathlon tracker in our best Garmin Watch guide because of its wide range of features for runners, runners, and swimmers. There’s a heart rate monitor, altimeter, thermometer, blood oxygen sensor, and training software that tracks your acclimation to the heat and provides predicted exercise goal times.
In our testing, the Pecci counter level is too sensitive to be used for everyday hunting, but more than 80 game modes for a wide range of outdoor activities can give you an ultra-deep look at your performance. It has a built-in GPS to track your runs and only takes an hour to fully charge.
It’s not very comfortable for workout activity and it’s packed with e-ink on the screen, but it’s remarkably accurate in capturing data on SpO2, sleep and heart rate. You can connect this with Google Fit. While there are better fitness trackers out there as far as workouts go, the Jorn is a slick watch with plenty of charm. Read more here.

I was a big fan of the franchise X (7/10, WIRED review) when I hit the streets of New York last week. All ebikes make a compromise below the $2,000 price point, but among the competition, the Wing is the best. With a surprisingly comfortable seat, ergonomic hand holds, a powerful motor, and a relatively light weight of 39 pounds, it offers much more than most competing ebikes. My review initially criticized the short warranty period, but Wing ebikes now come standard with a one year warranty.
My review of the Juiced Scrambler is in progress, but early opinions are so far good. Rather than wanting a sleek, regular-looking bike, a light weight wing or Propella, cut-down riders tend to weigh 60 to 70 pounds more. They offer speeds of 28 miles per hour, and claim a range of about 40 miles, depending on the model. Open box inventory is limited there, but there are discounts great to about 50 percent or more. You can read more about our practice here.
The discount isn’t huge, but at the low end of the market, it rarely goes much further than the sale. Plus, I really love Cafe Cruiser. It has a massive 750-watt motor, a 28-mile-per-hour (electrically assisted) top speed, and a decent 30 to 50-mile range. there passenger seat kit You can buy one for $125 that allows a friend to carry you, as long as they weigh 150 pounds or less.
This is the biggest sale we’ve seen of the 7S (8/10, WIRED Recommends) in 2020. Since then, it’s been upgraded in a few minor ways, but it’s still the same great bike to fall in love with. . It’s light weight (for an ebike) at 37 pounds, has seven mechanical gears, and reaches a top (electrically assisted) speed of 19 miles per hour. The set distance is 20 to 40 miles accurately, in my experience. It’s hard to find a spot for electric bike makers, which is the only thing you need if you don’t want to shoot your ride.
Pull out the cotton T-shirt. In the morning, you’re drenched in sweat during your workout, and you stay wet until you get home and pick it off. I’ve been wearing Dri-Fit shirts to work out in the gym for years. These shirts are thin enough to keep you cool, and their 93 percent polyester fabric dries quickly between workouts. The 7 percent Spandex gives it enough stretch for being flexible, too.
Along with my Nike shirts, I’ve been wearing these Adidas pants as workout pants for years. The tapered fit and slim fit mean nothing outside of the fabric is flying around while I’m working, and the 100 percent polyester fabric dries sweat quickly, yet is durable enough that I haven’t noticed any holes or holes yet.
When it’s cold and I go for a run (which isn’t often), I need something warmer to wear that doesn’t restrict my movement. These Uniqlo sweats are incredibly soft and comfortable, with just enough fit that doesn’t affect your flexibility. I also often use it for meditation and as a warm layer on walks to the gym when it’s cold outside.
It’s hard to find a solid all-around workout shoe. There are shoes for running, whether outside or on the treadmill, but there are also shoes for weight lifting, which usually have soles to flatter the stability. These X2s have been superseded by the X3, but I like the fact that these CrossFit shoes offer strength for deadlifts, squats, and overhead presses, along with the ability to progress on a stair machine or treadmill and just 45 minutes.
