There’s a whopping 21 pages of winners covering everything from smartphones, laptops and tablets to TVs, soundbars and speakers -with electric cars, drones, wearables and fitness gear in between. Plus we name our overall gadgets of the year.
We’ve also got a rundown of all the winter kit you need to stay fit through the frostier months, covering walks, runs and workouts. There’s something here to suit every budget and fitness level, so there’s no excuse for not working off that extra Christmas weight. An in-depth first test of the Fitbit Versa 4 and Suunto 9 Peak Pro should also help out if you’re looking for a fitness watch to strap onto your wrist.
Elsewhere we’ve been bouncing to Devialet’s first portable speaker, the Mania, and getting out game on with the Acer Predator Helios 300 and its clever glasses-free SpatialLabs 3D tech. Oppo’s first Android tablet to make it to the UK also gets put through its paces.
Then we spent far too long binge-watching streaming services to bring you an in-depth review of the latest generation Apple TV 4K. Has a hardware overhaul made it a better one-box streaming solution?
On the gaming side we’ve been trying to catch ’em all – again – with Pokemon Scarlet and Violet on the Nintendo Switch. A revolutionary open world and branching story paths certainly shake up the familiar formula, but is the presentation really up to snuff? Then we roll around at the speed of sound with Sonic Frontiers, another open-world take on a classic character. The blue blur has never really pulled off the jump from 2D to 3D – does this latest attempt get it right?
