Super Mario Maker may have snuck a wonderful single-player campaign into its new 3DS version this December, but the portable game’s lack of online play is too big a problem to let slide. Let us instead aim a year-end spotlight on a delightful-if-shameless Mario Maker tribute: Ultimate Chicken Horse. What shape should competitive, multiplayer Super Mario Maker take?

GPS, meanwhile, is equally as useful to help map your routes so you can see exactly how far you went as well as your pace, when you entered different heart rate zones, and a summary of the entire route.

The Fitbit Blaze is kind of clunky Let's not mince words: the Fitbit Blaze isn't exactly the nicest-looking smartwatch Fitbit has released. The Fitbit Versa employs a much nicer design than the Fitbit Blaze with a sleek face and rounded edges. By contrast, the Fitbit Blaze looks kind of clunky.
