    CES 2016 was proof that a lot of companies are out to build wearables that do fitness to a certain degree. Some of these are good enough to solve some needs, but the fact of the matter is that most are still experimenting. Serious fitness requires a little more of the things that are proven to already work, and never have we seem a more holistic approach to fitness than with the Under Armour HealthBox, made by HTC. See, most trackers can do a decent job at being just that, Trackers. But if you’re the type that is either starting out or is already invested in the fitness life style, you ...

Those days are over though as the company ...

    As is the case every year, CES is the place to be when it comes to seeing the latest and greatest trends. The oddity this year though, is that most of these didn't really have to do with mobile devices. In most cases smartphone OEMs have now taken the task of having their own shows, and then we see tablets on decline, and a lot of experimentation in the wearable market. CES 2016 was particularly notorious for this, and leaving more questions than answers over the future that we'll see in products over the next year. Watch our warp-up of CES 2016 as we discuss the hottest products that we ...

This is Pocketnow Fitness. -- We've gotta hand it to Inateck for two very distinctive things when it comes to their accessories. Number one is ...
