A watch that eyes your heart
The $199 Basis Band takes fitness tracking to the next level. This timepiece is bristling with sensors to measure everything from heart rate, steps, skin temperature, and even perspiration. As a result the Basis keeps tabs on activity level, sleep, plus syncs over Bluetooth to a companion iPhone or Android app.
- Overall score: 7.7 (3.5 stars)

The good: The Basis B1 Band by Basis Science tracks steps, calories, heart rate, and sleep automatically, syncs wirelessly via Bluetooth with iOS devices and a variety of Android smartphones, and has clever motivational software. Its watch design is handy and comfortable, too.
The bad: The Basis Band is big, bulky, and expensive compared with other health trackers.
The bottom line: The $199 Basis Band offers a powerful mix of sensors and motivational tools, but pass if you'd rather spend less on a fitness tracker or aren't partial to big, watch-style designs.
