In Pictures: 12 Bluetooth gadgets for geeks

Bluetooth, the short range wireless data communications technology, is in a huge range of products these days, and not just computers and phones.

The Garmin fēnix watch is much more than a timepiece. With a built-in altimeter, barometer, and 3-axis compass with automatic sensor calibration it can store up to 1,000 waypoints and up to 10,000 track points. Its TracBack feature reverses the track log to navigate you back to your starting point and, using its built in Bluetooth, you can share routes, tracks and waypoints with other devices. The fēnix can also collect data from ANT-compatible devices, such as wireless heart rate monitor, cadence sensors and Tempe wireless temperature sensor. Priced at $400, it is a gadget that even a desk-bound geek will lust after (and you’ll never lose your way to the lunch room again).

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
