Back in March, we gave you a not-so-pleasant update on a funded IndieGogo campaign called Misfit Shine, a wearable activity tracker (like a Fitbit) that is easily one of the most elegant designs you’ll see in the industry. Their team announced at the time that they had dropped Android support, even though they had initially said it would be a part of the product’s launch. As a well-funded project at over $800,000 with thousands of backers, this wasn’t exactly the start that a potential Android userbase was looking for.
As months have gone by with iOS-only apps available, we had almost forgotten about the Misfit Shine altogether. And then out of no where this past week, they announced that Shine for Android was “coming soon.” They haven’t exactly given a firm date, but we do know that it’ll support Android 4.3 devices with Bluetooth 4.0.

We don’t know how long the deal will last, but a Daily Steal over at eBay has popped up for the Nexus 5 with 32GB of storage. The deal includes a $5 price drop to $394 (from Google’s $399 price) and free shipping. You can pick either the black or white “panda” versions as well, with estimated delivery between December 4 and December 10. If you take a look at the Google Play listing for each 32GB Nexus 5, estimating shipping dates are as far out as December 11.
If the Nexus 5 was on your list, this is the best deal in town.
It could be that today is Black Friday, but full retail pricing on some of Verizon’s top devices seems to be dropping to pretty reasonable numbers. We’re talking the brand new HTC One Max at $499, a phone that launched 8 days ago for $299 on-contract and $599 off. (more…)
Pebble, what can only be described as the most successful smartwatch to date, is now available through Amazon. Up until this week, Pebble was only available directly through Pebble’s site or through select retailers like Best Buy. This move, as you can imagine, is huge for the wearable startup. At $149.99 through the online retail giant, though, you aren’t seeing a deal – that’s the exact same price that Pebble is listed at everywhere else. (more…)
A week ago, we highlighted a deal at big box retailer Costco that would land you three (3) $20 Google Play gift cards for just $53.99. In case you need help with simple math, that’s $60 worth of Google Play credits for $54 or a $6 savings. That’s like someone handing you free cash just for good measure.
Starting today, and running all the way through December 1, Costco is running a similar deal only they have slashed another $6 off of the price. So for $47.99, you can snag a 3-pack of $20 Google Play gift cards for just $47.99. Even more free cash! (more…)
Still haven’t decided whether or not you want to join the dongle clan? How about a Black Friday weekend deal on the Chromecast that drops the device’s price to $29.99? Normally listed at $35 almost everywhere, you are looking at a $5 saving, which isn’t exactly some unbeatable deal, but Google is also tossing in a $6 Google Play credit with the purchase. (more…)
NVIDIA’s portable Android-powered gaming machine, also known as SHIELD (our review), has dropped to $249 in a Black Friday sale. The device usually runs $300, giving you a savings of $50 up front, but NVIDIA is also making sure you have free shipping and some other goodies to go along with it. The deal changes depending on retailer, so we’ve listed a few out for you below. (more…)
