Our tests of the week

Nothing Ear: the best headphones under 150 euros on the market

If you’re looking for comfortable headphones that offer quality sound and effective active noise cancellation, the Nothing Ear is for you. We like the intuitive and comprehensive application, the precise equalizer, the iconic design and the attractive price. We regret that transparent plastic ages poorly. Press Touch is not always practical and the ambient sound mode could be improved.

Withings ScanWatch Nova: a nice watch but not the best for sports

Our test confirmed that the Withings ScanWatch Nova offers very good battery life, is waterproof to 100 meters and comes with an improved charger and all necessary accessories. It is a connected watch with a beautiful design, refined and lightweight, which offers a complete and reliable health component. We regret the lack of GPS navigation in the menus. Please note that you cannot read the notifications again or turn off the watch. This is not the best watch for sports and the price is quite substantial.
