    The real-time heart-rate tracking isn't perfect, but it comes close. And with automatic sleep and exercise tracking, and an improved industrial design, the Basis Peak is much better than its predecessor.

    The real-time heart-rate tracking isn't perfect, but it comes close. And with automatic sleep and exercise tracking, and an improved industrial design, the Basis Peak is much better than its predecessor.

    Pros

    • Seriously good heart-rate tracking—on a wristband, no less.
    • Industry-best sleep tracking for a wrist wearable.
    • Slick industrial design, good battery life, and it's comfortable.
    • Automatically tracks exercise sessions and sleep; no button presses required.

    Cons

    • Smartwatch-style notifications can't come soon enough.
    • Infrequent but still very real heart-rate dropouts are annoying.
