Welcome to OnSale at FOXBusiness, where we look at cool stuff and insane bargains.
The makers of the Fitbit Ultra have two new ways to help you keep your fitness goals on track. A new offer for Time Warner Cable Internet customers means free TV. This big toy store has a great deal for kids who love to listen to music – and parents will love it, too. And students and researchers will love this free new tool.
A Bit More Fit
Fitbit, the fitness tool that brought us the Ultra for activity and sleep tracking, now has two new devices to help you get and stay in shape.
The Fitbit Zip and the Fitbit One wirelessly track your daily activities and the One also tracks sleep habits and comes with a silent, vibrating alarm. You can sync your Fitbit devices with your iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, the third generation iPad and Android to better track your progress and share with friends.
The One will replace the Ultra, helping you monitor distance, daily steps and calories burned during the day, and track your sleep patterns at night. The FitBit One will be available later this fall for $99.95, but can be pre-ordered now.
The Fitbit Zip, a smaller version available for just $59.95, is on sale now and comes in five different colors.
An exclusive deal for Time Warner Cable (TWC) Internet users provides Ultimate Internet and free TV Essentials for just $99.99 per month for one year of service. Time Warner is offering local broadcast channels plus 40 more, including VH1 and Disney, plus digital music channels, Movies on Demand and free installation. Time Warner is also offering Ultimate Internet and digital TV with free HD DVR service for six months at $139.99 per month for twelve months. Learn more at TimeWarnerCable.com.
For Little Ears
Toys R Us has some great, affordable headphones made just for kids, with volume control features that are kind to their ears. Starting at just $15 per set, Maxell Safe Soundz are colorful and comfortable. For ages 3 to 5, the headphones are set at a 75bd limit. Their sets for ages 6 to 9 are set at an 85bd limit, and they make earbuds too. Check them out at ToysRUs.com
Free App Citing
Academics, students and anyone who has to write the occasional research paper will want to check out this new app. Citelighter allows users to simply highlight facts you want to cite, then click “Capture”. The site is saved and so is the information. That way when you go back to review your research citations, you’ll find them all in one convenient place. Citeligher even creates a bibliography for you, available in various formats like MLA and Chicago. There’s also a pro version, which costs just $10 per month.
