Fitness trackers

Fitbit
FitBitAmazon

Today only, save $50 on select FitBit fitness trackers like the Alta, Ionic, and Ace models. The wearable devices track your steps, calories, and sleep health. Unlike the Apple Watch, most FitBits brag a 5-day battery life. While you might not get a ton of information on the FitBit's screen, you can pair it with your smartphone or computer to set goals and get more detailed information about your daily activity performance. Prices range from $79 to $280, depending on the model.

Fire Stick

Hey Amazon Prime members can save $15 on an Amazon Fire TV Stick. The devices include an Alexa-Enabled voice remote, plug into your HDMI port, connect over Wi-Fi, and give you instant access to your Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon shows. What I like about the Fire TV Stick is that it's one of the smallest streaming devices, so you can easily throw it in your pocket and bring it over to a friend's place. Get it today for $25.
