We like the Vizio 4K (Ultra HD) since they’ve managed to design a truly disruptive design at the $800 price point compared to the others.  We expect Vizio will develop higher end functionality if the market wants it, and do so at a lower cost than the rest of them.  We saw this decision by Vizio a couple months back as a major market move on their part to unseat the other players at the top of the tier, we shall have to wait and see.

Need An Affordable Laptop for Black Friday? Buy a Chromebook

Motorola’s Moto 360 isn’t like the chunky smartwatches we have reviewed till now, and that is perhaps its biggest achievement. The scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass layer on the display catches fingerprints easily.  To tick the ruggedness boxes, the 360 has the IP67 water-resistance rating—it can be submerged in water up to a depth of 1m, for about 30 minutes. Basically, you can shower without taking it off.  Unlike Samsung’s smartwatches, which pair only with Samsung smartphones, the 360 works with almost all Android phones.
