At the end of January, safety researchers at the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety published a study showing that small increases in speed have big consequences during a crash. After crashing three identical cars at increasing speed, the study showed that a car that aces the test across the board at 40mph (64km/h), with just a 15 percent chance of serious injury may get a failing grade overall, with a 59 percent chance of serious injury at 50mph

Patrick

Huami has been consistently making affordable fitness trackers that are now counted in the same breath as the Fitbits and Garmins of the world. The Chinese firm updated its most popular GTS and GTR smartwatches late last year and added more models to the lineup, targeting buyers with different budgets.

At the top of the food chain, you get the Amazfit GTS 2 and GTR 2 at $150. These are followed by the slightly watered-down GTS 2e and GTR 2e at $140. Right at the bottom, you get the Amazfit GTS 2 Mini with an even lower price of $99.
