The Garmin Forerunner 35 is a basic GPS watch for the running purist

If you’re on the hunt for a flashy smartwatch that caters to a wide array of activities, has a high-res, full-color screen, and can measure nearly any variable you can think of (plus plenty you never knew existed), the Garmin Forerunner 35 is probably not for you. But if you’re a dedicated runner more interested in a simple interface, a comfortable, low-profile look, and a few key metrics — lik...

Best dog DNA tests: How to learn more about your pup and build a stronger bond

Everybody thinks their dog is the best dog in the world — and they're right. All doggos are the best doggos in the world. 11/10. 100% good boy/girl. You already know that your dog is unique, but you're probably wondering what about your pet's genetic makeup makes them so special. Why are his eyes two different colors? Why does she have spotted fur? Why does he insist on barking any time somethi...

The best fitness trackers to buy this Prime Day

You can't buy motivation. But, you can buy a fitness tracking device that lights a fire under your ass to take more than 500 steps in a day, and that's not nothing. The rhetoric around fitness has changed quite a bit over the past few years (as made clear by Every Fashion Brand Ever releasing a line of matching leggings and sports bras). We can thank the self-care revolution for this one. Activ...

Pixar's 'Luca' is a treat to be savored

By Pixar standards, Luca is a teeny-tiny film. It's not grasping at the purpose of life or the point of emotions ; it's not delving into the Great Before or the Great Beyond ; it's not even expanding an existing universe or creating a whole new one . The emotions it inspires seem relatively modest, too — more warm fuzzies than the full-body sobs the studio has become famous for provoking in gro...

So your kid needs a laptop here are the models to look for on Prime Day

The learning experience is fundamentally different for kids now than it was even for today's 20-somethings — especially for elementary and middle schools. A lot of that change can be attributed to laptops. The Covid-induced school closures that spanned 2020 cemented the cruciality of a kid having easy access to a laptop at home. Both teachers and parents were forced to make online learning work...

Space tourism sounds fun. But it could be terrible for the planet.

Space travel has environmental costs. For research, it might be worth it. To send Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, and other wealthy tourists into orbit? That’s debatable. Companies including SpaceX, Virgin Galactic, and Space Adventures want to make space tourism more common. And people are interested. Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa spent an undisclosed sum of money to SpaceX in 2018 for a pr...

Everything to know about that other Loki in 'Loki'

Just like the god of mischief himself, Loki has thrown a wrench in everything we thought we knew . Just when Episode 2 of the new Disney+ series looked to be following a procedural plot involving Loki and Mobius hunting a variant of the Loki we (sort of) know, its final moments revealed that the hunted variant is somebody (sort of) new: a female-presenting variant of Loki. A.K.A Lady Loki. Ther...
