Dramatically improve your jogging game — save 30% on a NURVV smart running sensor – CNET

nurvv
Nurvv

If you're serious about running, you know how important it is to listen to your feet. Seemingly insignificant running habits can have a big effect on your health and performance. Personally, I've had a lifelong battle with overpronation that has led to numerous injuries. No, I'm not smart enough to realize that on my own -- I worked with a trainer some years ago who deduced that was my problem. But a trainer may not be readily available. A sensor that slips into your running shoes, a NURVV kit is like having constant access to a coach and physical trainer, delivering key metrics and analysis. Usually $300, right now you can get the NURVV for $210 -- a full 30% off when you use the exclusive promo code CNET30 at checkout. 

The NURVV puts 32 pressure sensors under your feet -- 16 on each foot -- in the form of insoles that slip into your existing running shoes. While you won't feel them, you will see them, since the insoles are connected to a module that clips to the side of your shoe. That's where the NURVV's brains, GPS and battery reside. It all connects to a mobile app that synthesizes the data the NURVV collects and gives you a detailed analysis of your run. The system collects your footstrike information and uses it to develop a detailed profile of your running behavior, including cadence, stride, pronation and balance. 

You can really geek out on the wealth of data that the NURVV provides, or just scan the high-level recommendations. You get an overall heath score, for example, with a trendline, as in, "Your health has recently declined." (That's something it recently told me, because as a machine it doesn't care if it hurts my feelings.) Like a good trainer, the NURVV will make suggestions about your training load, such as how long you should run tomorrow or if you need a rest. It recognizes problems in your pronation, cadence and balance and recommends ways to fix your problems. 

And the NURVV does more than deliver post-run recommendations. If you like, you can even enable a real-time coaching mode in which the NURVV will advise you throughout the run, keeping you on pace with notes about your stride and cadence. 

As a lifelong runner who admittedly has a veritable grab bag of bad running habits, I found the NURVV's efforts to help me run faster while reducing injuries to be an eye-opening experience. This way I can get practical and seemingly accurate advice without paying to work with a human trainer. Of course, it has some wonkiness; I found the batteries altogether too hard to remove for charging (it's confusing enough that there's a special help page about it on the NURVV website), and I never got the system to work reliably with my Apple Watch, something it was supposed to be able to do. But those quibbles aside, I'd highly recommend this to other serious runners willing to invest in some great analytic gear. And at 30% off, you probably won't find a better deal anytime soon.

This large-capacity 10-quart air fryer is $50, less than half its regular price – CNET

air-fryer
Daily Steals

Air fryers are a modern miracle -- they make awesome wings, fries and mozzarella sticks, for starters, but they can make a ton of different foods quickly and easily. Of course, the name is pure marketing-speak. Nothing is getting fried; it's really just a specialized convection oven. Let's put semantics aside, though, and celebrate the fact that you can get the PowerXL 1700W 10-quart Vortex Air Fryer Pro Oven for just $50 when you apply promo code CNETPXL at checkout.

This air fryer usually sells for $120 or more when new (it's selling for $120 at Amazon right now), but this is a manufacturer refurb. The best refurb price I could find is $55 on eBay, and so this deal beats that price by $5. 

This PowerXL model is unique in that it's much roomier than average. Most air fryers average 6 quarts or less, but this one holds a massive 10 quarts. PowerXL makes good use of the space with oven-style shelving, so you can arrange different foods on two levels. You control the fryer via an LED touchscreen and it has a dozen presets for food settings like French fries, roast, baking, fish, chicken, rotisserie, pizza, dehydrator and more.

Buy an Amazon Echo 4th Gen and get a pair of Philips Hue bulbs for free – CNET

echo
Amazon

For some reason, Amazon loves bundling its Echo speakers. Sometimes you can get an Echo Dot for free with the purchase of something else; at other times, Amazon flips the script and throws something in with the purchase of an Echo. That's what's going on right now -- you can get the new fourth-generation Amazon Echo and a pair of Philips Hue bulbs for $80, which is a savings of $50 off the price of those items separately.

The new sphere-shaped Echo is a noticeable upgrade from the previous generation of Echo speakers. Aesthetically, the sphere is a fun and unusual departure from Amazon's previous pucks and grain silos. But that's not all; the sound quality is improved, along with better smart home connectivity and pairing. You can read CNET's entire Amazon Echo (4th gen) review for more details. 

The good news is that you're not limited to any particular colors with this deal -- you can get the Echo in charcoal, white, red or blue, and Amazon will throw in a pair of Philips Hue bulbs. This deal comes and goes, but right now it's about $10 less than usual, and only $10 more than its all-time low of $70.

The brand-new Google Nest Audio is already on sale for $80 – CNET

nest-audio-1

Nest Audio keeps the signature dot display of other Google smart speakers.

Chris Monroe/CNET

It has only been a few months since we first caught sight of the new Google Nest Audio, a smart speaker that falls between the Nest Mini and Home Max in the Google hierarchy. Usually priced at $100, that's what it's selling for everywhere, including Walmart and the Google store. But right now, you can save $20 and get the Google Nest Audio for $80 at Best Buy. 

The new Nest Audio stands about 7 inches tall and, as is the fashion these days, comes fabric-wrapped in any of five colors (chalk, charcoal, sand, sky and sage). There's a privacy button that mutes the microphone, and it can connect with other devices via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. It sounds better than the Google Home it's replacing, equipped with a 19mm tweeter and large 75mm mid-woofer. Overall, it's a noticeable improvement and is a good value at $80 (though there will inevitably be better deals later in the year, especially as we approach Black Friday 2021. (You can learn more by reading the CNET review of the Google Nest Audio.)

For now, this is a good chance to get the latest Google smart speaker at 20% off.

Get Apple Music and Apple News Plus free for six months — sounds too good, but is true – CNET

Deal

Savings

Price

It's no secret that Apple has been busy rolling out a veritable network of services -- from Apple Music to Apple News Plus to the latest, Apple Fitness Plus. Even dedicated Apple fans might balk at subscribing to all of them, though, which would add $30 a month to your credit card bill. Well, here's some relief for your wallet; right now at Best Buy you can nab free trials of all of Apple's online services for as long as six months. Grab any one or all three -- the only rule is that this is for new subscribers only. 

Apple

Apple News Plus is Apple's digital newsstand for the Mac, iPhone and iPad. Regularly $10 a month, you can get a six-month trial absolutely free. (Apple usually offers a one-month-free trial.) The service gives you access to more than 300 magazines and newspapers, and articles are available for reading or in a podcast-like audio format. This deal is only valid for new subscribers. 

Sarah Tew/CNET

A significant competitor to Spotify, Apple Music lets you stream music directly to your Apple devices, choosing from a library of over 70 million songs. You can download tracks -- up to 100,000 of them -- for offline listening, and listen to live and on-demand radio stations hoisted by popular artists. Regularly $10 a month, you can get as many as three months free from Apple -- but this Best Buy deal doubles that and gives you six months for free. (New subscribers only, though.)

Vanessa Hand Orellana/CNET

If you have an Apple Watch, then Apple's new Fitness Plus service is a no-brainer -- so says CNET's Vanessa Hand Orellana in her review of Apple Fitness Plus. The service offers guided workouts that stream from your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV and uses your Apple watch to display metrics to help you meet your fitness goals. It has 10 workouts to choose from and is friendly to beginners and experienced users alike. Regularly $10 a month, you can get a one-month trial for free through Apple, or two months here.

PS5 price: What Sony’s new console really costs you – CNET

010-playstation-5.png
screenshot / Sony

Conventional wisdom holds that the PlayStation 5 is priced at $400 or $500, depending upon which model you purchase. The "standard" PS5 with the Blu-Ray drive sells for $500, and there's a nearly identical digital-only version that lacks an optical drive and sells for a more modest $400 (though even that pales in comparison to the downright thrifty $300 Xbox Series S). But it's hard to make that argument when the PS5 has been sold out for three months at those prices, and the only real marketplace for the console routinely sees prices two or three times higher. 

Resellers across the internet have been snapping up Sony's next-gen console using bots that can complete transactions far faster than any human. Some retailers have started to crack down on these reseller bots, but they remain a menace and have prevented many people from getting consoles at launch and during subsequent retailer restocks. Regardless, these consoles are being resold at a premium. Right now on eBay, for example, it's possible to find the PS5 bundled with one or two accessories selling for as little as $650 or as much as $1,500. 

We've been dispensing the same advice for months now: No console, not even the PS5, is worth spending hundreds over retail. That's especially true with so little content available that's specifically optimized for the PS5. Wen suggest that you keep playing your PS4 for a few more months until a meaningful amount of inventory arrives at retailers later this year. 

In the meantime, PS5 restocks do, in fact, happen, and gamers with fast reaction times have managed to snag a console. We are keeping an eye on inventory drops and let you know when one is imminent -- be sure to check out our PS5 restock status article for more details. Below, you can find a list of all the major retailers (and a couple of reputable resellers) to help you get your own console. 

Retailers restocking the PS5

Best Buy is selling the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500. You can also get the $400 Digital Edition (which you can find by clicking the button below).

Target offers the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500 in addition to the PS5 Digital Edition for $400, which you can find by clicking the button below.

To be clear, we recommend waiting for inventory to appear at retail. But if you need a PS5 right now, we haven't seen one on eBay for under $650. The average price on eBay appears to be about $800. 

If you've decided you're willing to pay hundreds over list price to get a console now, you might want to check out StockX. Right now, it appears that $700 is the least you can spend on a PS5, and prices go substantially higher.
