Ed­i­tor’s let­ter

With 2018 in full swing, we’ve seen some ex­cel­lent tech launches, and they tend to range from the sub­lime to the ridicu­lous. We’ve tried to fo­cus on the for­mer in our gadget wishlist (page 22), but some­times you’ve got to let the hype sweep you up and fea­ture some fu­tur­is­tic ro­bots, too. So we did.

If you want to stay in the present, there’s our run­down of Dolby Atmos and what it can bring to your home. Pair an Atmos sys­tem with a 4K TV (you’ve got one of those, right?) and you’re in for a treat. It’s one of those ex­pe­ri­ences that can truly en­ve­lope you in au­dio, en­hanc­ing what you see on screen to an in­cred­i­ble de­gree. Nor do you need a whole load of space, as some sys­tems are wire­less. You can read more on the sonic up­grade from page 32.

For any­one who’d rather be out­doors, we’ve put to­gether an in­valu­able com­par­i­son be­tween three of the best sports and fit­ness watches that pack in ex­tra smarts, writ­ten by our pro­fes­sional ad­ven­turer, Damian Hall, who logs hun­dreds of kilo­me­tres ev­ery month. He’s put the trio of tricky time­pieces through their paces on page 58.

Nor have we skimped on test­ing the lat­est tech re­leases, with a packed re­views sec­tion that will take you to an­other uni­verse in VR (page 78) and up into the big blue (page 68). En­joy the is­sue!
