Verizon Wireless offers the UE ROLL 2 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker in four colors for $49.99 shipped. Note: final price reflected in-cart. That’s a 50% savings off the original MSRP, down $19 from our previous mention and the best that we’ve ever seen.
The UE ROLL 2 features an IPX7 waterproof design, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 5.5-hour built-in battery. Additionally, you can pair two speakers together for a stereo listing experience. We’ve consistently found UE’s Bluetooth speakers to be amongst our favorite in this product category, and Amazon customers largely agree.

It seems like every company is throwing their hat into the ring for Virtual Reality and 360-degree content. Most recently though, Huawei and Insta360 unveiled the Honor VR Camera, a new clip-on 360-degree smartphone camera. While we’ve mentioned other smartphone VR-ready cameras before, Huawei’s shakes things up a bit by plugging directly into one’s device.
As far are features go, Huawei’s camera offers 3K photography and even ‘seamless’ livestreaming. The camera is controlled via a smartphone companion app developed by Insta360 which allows you to download, share and broadcast your 360-degree content. Because the Honor VR Camera plugs directly into your device, there’s no need to rely on Bluetooth or MicroSD cards to transfer media, and it saves directly to the connected smartphone. At launch, the device will only work with Huawei’s Honor 8 smartphone, so unfortunately no iPhone support yet. While there isn’t pricing and availability information yet, Huawei plans to start an international rollout of the device soon.
The Moar Folding Electric Bike doesn’t follow the trends of previous alternative energy transports that we’ve featured here on 9to5Toys. Instead of a commuter-friendly design, this two-wheeler is high-powered and ready for just about anything. It is backed by a 500W rear electric hub or 750W mid-drive motor. While it does fold up into a smaller package, Moar’s latest creation features off-road tires and a bulkier frame.
After a brief stint on Indiegogo, it has raised over $81,000, easily surpassing the initial $30,000 goal. Moar uses a 48W battery to power the internal motor, as well as a built-in LED dashboard and turn signals. Cycling enthusiasts will note the inclusion of seven-speed Shimano gears on this eBike, bringing a bit of name recognition to this crowdfunding project. The entry-level $999 model provides up to 50-miles of range while the more powerful $1,199 rendition provides around 65-miles. Stepping up to the top-end $1,999 “Rapt” version brings an 85-mile battery. Moar is expected to begin shipping units in May.
Blutek (98.7% Positive feedback from shoppers) via eBay Daily Deals is offering the Fitbit Charge 2 Heart Rate + Fitness Wristband for just $109.99 shipped. That’s $40 off the regular selling price/ Amazon’s listing and the lowest we’ve seen since Black Friday.
This FitBit has an OLED display with clock, continuous heart rate monitoring, step-tracking, multi-sport modes, Bluetooth 4.0, smartphone notifications and wireless sync with supported computers and smartphones. It’s available in sizes from S to XL, but popular colors are selling out quick. Rated 4.3/5 stars by over 5,800 Amazon shoppers.
BuyDig is offering the Samsung 65-inch Curved 4K Smart Ultra HDTV (model UN65KU6500) for $949.00 shipped. It regularly sells for $1,200 at online retailers like Amazon. Additionally, you can get the Toshiba 49-inch 4K Ultra HDTV with Chromecast for $350 shipped from Best Buy’s official eBay storefront and also directly from Best Buy’s website.
Samsung’s 65-inch Curved 4K Ultra HDTV features a slim & curved design, smart functionality, three HDMI inputs, 120 Motion Rate, and two USB ports. Rated 4.6/5 stars by over 250 Amazon users. Toshiba’s 49-inch TV includes Chromecast built-in, Google Home functionality, 3 HDMI inputs for the best home theater connection, and 1 USB input. Toshiba’s line of Chromecast-enabled HDTVs have received excellent ratings historically at Best Buy.
Electronics Valley (99.7% positive feedback, Top-Rated Plus Seller) via eBay Daily Deals offers Apple’s latest 13-inch MacBook Air 1.6GHz/8GB/128GB (model MMGF2LL/A) on sale for $796.99 shipped. That’s down from its list price of $999. We saw it for as low as $725 in Best Buy’s Presidents Day sale, but that deal required Visa Checkout. Shoppers in just a few states are required to pay tax at the time of purchase here, so that sweetens the deal a bit more.
This is a solid entry-level MacBook that blends performance and price. Features include two USB 3.0 ports, Thunderbolt 2, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, SDXC card slot and two microphones.
Need more storage? We still have the 256GB model on sale for $950 shipped (Reg. $1,099).
Accessorize your new MacBook with a stand for extra productivity. We recommend Twelve South’s Adjustable Hi-Rise Aluminum Adjustable Stand.
