LG’s take on fitness trackers, the Lifeband Touch, is now available at Best Buy in two sizes for $149.99. First announced at CES in January, but then seemingly shelved for months, the Lifeband Touch does everything you would expect a modern day fitness tracker to do.
The Lifeband Touch tracks steps, distance, and speed, along with workout run time, calories, pace, climb, and activity vs. inactivity.

Best Buy is currently selling the Nexus 7 (2013) with LTE for $299, $50 off its retail price. This is the same tablet that Verizon now sells for $349 or $49 on-contact. This is also the same Nexus 7 (2013) with LTE that can be purchased on Google Play and will work with AT&T, T-Mobile, and Big Red’s LTE networks.
