There are endless Linux command-line utilities that show the details of your computer’s hardware . HardInfo displays all that information in an easy graphical interface. It’s like Windows Device Manager for Linux. Inspecting Hardware Linux has many command-line tools that show you the properties of different hardware components in your computer.

The Apple Watch has been a good fitness tracker since its launch in 2015. With each subsequent generation, it’s gained additional hardware features. The latest Apple Watches can detect and monitor a few different health conditions. Caution: The Apple Watch Isn’t a Medical Device First, I must mention two big caveats. The Apple Watch is in no way a replacement for your doctor, nor is the internet, nor am I (check my bio: I’m just a writer).

A lot of research is still being done ( you can even participate if you want ) on which conditions it can potentially monitor. Of course, we won’t see the results of those studies for a while.
