Already settled on the Fitbit you want? Here’s how to make sure it’ll fit!

To get the most out of your Fitbit, you want to wear it as much as possible. This means all day at work, all night when you’re sleeping, and on every trip to the gym. Make sure your Fitbit is super comfortable around your wrist by following one of their sizing guides before buying. As our top pick for 2019, we recommend the Fitbit Versa for most people.

Fitbit’s best fitness tracker: Fitbit Versa ($200 at Fitbit)

Why do you need to measure your wrist before buying a Fitbit?

Fitbits come in two standard sizes, small and large (though you can get an X-large by ordering models through the Fitbit site). It’s a little strange that there’s not a medium or regular size. Does that mean your normal-sized wrist is actually a large? How small is small? How large is large?

Fortunately, Fitbit breaks down wrist sizes based on their circumferences (the distance around the outside of your wrist) and ties those with the different product sizes. This makes it easy …

Take your iPhone XS for a swim with one of these waterproof cases

Though the iPhone XS has an IP68 rating, which guarantees protection in water up to 1.5m deep for 30 minutes, I know I don’t want to risk dropping it into a swimming pool completely unprotected. That’s where waterproof cases come in. They’re completely sealed off so not only are you protected from potential water damage, but also from dust and debris. These are the best on the market for the iPhone XS.

How much does Hello Fresh cost?

Best answer: Hello Fresh costs between $8 and $10 per serving, or about $60 for a 3-recipe box that feeds two people.

Hello Fresh meal kits: Hello Fresh (From $48 at Hello Fresh)
How to read a meal kit menu

Meal kits are sold per-recipe/per-person, with permutations that offer between two to four recipes and serve between two to four people, depending on the service you choose. You can look at the total price for the box, but meal kit services first show you the price per serving. One serving is how much one person should eat, so each two-person meal recipe gives you two servings.

Every meal kit service offers a discount if you buy more recipes and serve more eaters, but the price drop isn’t as great as you’d expect; generally a dollar or two per serving if you order extra meals. This adds up when you’re feeding a large family, but if you order too much food and an entire meal sits in your fridge until the ingredients go bad, you’ve lost money on the deal and wasted food. Food kit…

Can I control my Joule when I’m not at home?

Best answer: Yes, you can! If your Joule is plugged in at home and hooked up to your Wi-Fi, you can control it out and about from anywhere you have connectivity via an Apple iPhone, iPad, or an Android mobile device using the Joule app.

Magic wand: Joule Sous Vide ($198 at Amazon)
Able apps: Joule: Sous Vide by ChefSteps (Free at App Store)
Work up an app-etite

Having the option to start cooking while you are away can be a game-changer. With the Joule, you can, which is pretty great. However, you need the Joule app to operate your sous vide machine remotely. The Joule app is currently compatible with iOS 9.x or later and Android 4.4 or later. Once your Joule is plugged in and hooked up to your home Wi-Fi, you can start it up from afar. The Joule will continue to safely operate in your kitchen while you’re out at work or play.

The Joule app gives you cooking and recipe information. Once you’ve referenced that, the app lets you set cooking temperatures and cooking times and allows…

Apple opens Apple Arcade early access program

Image Credit: 9to5Mac

Apple employees get to experience the subscription gaming service right now.

Apple Arcade is headed to an iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV near you this fall. We have no idea what day it’ll launch or how much it’ll cost, but we’re finding out today that Apple has opened up an early access program, but it’s not for everyone. Apple employees are the only ones invited to the beta testing program and 9to5Mac has a contact on the inside (lucky devils).

In this early access phases, according to 9to5Mac, includes a small subscription price of $0.49 per month with a one-month free trial to start (this is almost definitely not the final price of a subscription to Apple Arcade). The trial is set to end ”with the launch of iOS 13.”

9to5Mac, with access to Apple Arcade on Mac, explains the process of signing up for the free one-month trial and temporary monthly subscription price, and then goes on to explain what Apple Arcade looks like on the Mac.
