One arm, five fitness trackers. For my +Wall Street Journal tech column this week, I enjoyed testing one from +Mio Global that does what so many others have been missing: turn all that data about your heart rate into actionable advice. Its new "Personal Activity Intelligence" (PAI) is definitely where wearables need to go next. http://on.wsj.com/1RT9Two
PAI, the new fitness metric from wearable maker Mio, gives 24/7 analysis of your heart rate

Coming to your ear holes soon: truly wireless headphones. My +Wall Street Journal review of the first buds without strings, +EARIN and +Bragi Dash. http://on.wsj.com/1PdyzJ5
Bragi Dash and Earin earbuds may usher in an era of ‘hearable’ computers, but they’re also works in progress

A few weeks ago, +Shira Ovide asked me what she could do about her broken TV. The adventure that ensued changed my view on our shop-till-you-drop gadget culture. My +WSJ column this week on our illusive right to repair: http://www.wsj.com/articles/we-need-the-right-to-repair-our-gadgets-1441737868?tesla=y
People can fight back against planned obsolescence by fixing the tech we already own, but the consumer electronics industry isn’t making it easy

American homes have more TVs than children, an average of 3 per household. If you've been thinking about buying a new TV, this happens to be a really good time to get a deal. Here's what I'd tell you if I was your personal shopper: http://on.wsj.com/1ROm919
If you’re looking to purchase a TV, ask yourself, how big should it be? Do I need 4K? Should I wait until next year? Geoffrey A. Fowler offers shopping tips.

This rainbow of a graphic shows why tech called HDR (high dynamic range) is TVs next big thing--and more important than 4K UltraHD. My +WSJ TV guide http://on.wsj.com/1MmTskK
High dynamic range, or HDR, is a bigger deal for picture quality than Ultra HD 4K or more gimmicky TV upsells

Did Apple finally "crack" TV, like Steve Jobs promised? Not yet. My first look at the new Apple TV: http://on.wsj.com/1McR1FP
The New Apple TV will introduce apps and games. But old problems linger.

Cars don't have to be Luddites. My +WSJ test drive of gadgets that can fast forward any car made after 1996 to the smartphone era: Automatic, Mojio and Zubie. http://on.wsj.com/1NSvcZv 
The Automatic, the Mojio and the Zubie collect data about your vehicle’s engine, fuel efficiency and location
