[Opinion] Why Apple should buy Fitbit

A lot has been made recently of Apple’s newest version of their smartwatch.  And Apple has certainly made significant advancements in not only their own product, but in the genre of smart wearables in general.  But even with a larger display, more accurate tracking and sensors, and advanced features like heart monitoring and an ECG built in, there are still some areas where the Apple Watch series 4 falls short.  Apple can use in house solutions to untangle these problems, but there is also another option that they could avail themselves of.  And in choosing this path, they might find that they are gaining more than they could at first imagine.  I think that Apple should buy Fitbit as a whole, and fold them into their smart wearable division.  Let me tell you why.

Today’s Deal – Headphone charging adapter for Apple iPhones

We’ve been talking a lot of Apple products around these parts lately – which is unusual for us for sure.  But as many of you know we live in a world where Apple introduced us to a world without headphone jacks.  And sometimes that’s easier and more convenient, but more often than not, its just a plain old pain in the rear.  But there are some things you can do to help out with that, and today’s deal is one of those things.

You can save 20% off an ANTTUS charging adapater for iPhone devices, that will allow you to continue to listen to your lightning compatible Earpods while still charging your phone.  You simply plug one end of the 3ft cable into your portable battery pack or USB A charging adapater, and the other end into your compatible iPhone (iPhone 7 and above, including the iPhone X) and then put your lightning Earpods into the cable’s dongle adapter.  And boom! – you can continue to listen to music, podcasts (like ours!) or take and make phone calls while your phone charges away.

You can use this link to see the cable on Amazon, and use the promo code “20A3A4JH” to get 20% off at checkout.  It’s that easy!  If you’re like me, and need to charge your iPhone on the go with a portable battery, this could be a real time and hassle saver.  Let us know if you are interested in more “Deal’s of the Day” like this one, and thanks for reading!
