Intel Issues Basis Smartwatch Recall

Intel has issued a full recall on their Basis Peak line of smartwatches. Reportedly, the fitness-based wearables have a defect that can cause them to overheat and burn the wearer. This recall affects all units sold before July, so the vast majority are affected. If you own one of these smartwatches, stop using it immediately! Don’t worry though, Intel is issuing a full refund to anyone who purchased a Basis Peak device.
