Smart Glasses May Be Where Fashion & Technology Intersect

Would you be surprised to learn that sales of smart glasses are estimated to reach $1.8 billion by the year 2021?  A variety of wearable technology devices has been all the rage over the past five years.   Unfortunately, with the failure of Google’s smart eyewear that was launched in 2012, this segment has been slower to grow than its category cousins that include fitness monitors and wearable health apparatuses.

Presidents Day at Joe's New Balance Outlet

It’s Presidents Day! Besides being totally confused about whether or not to include an apostrophe in Presidents (and then before the s or after the s?), it got me thinking. Is there anyone or anything more quintessentially American than George Washington, the president for whom this holiday originated? Apple pie? Maybe. Baseball? Perhaps. The free enterprise system? Definitely! And who benefits when private businesses compete for our hard-earned George Washingtons? We do! So this President’s or Presidents’ or Presidents Day, let’s make it our mission to buy the highest quality merchandise we can for the lowest possible price.

Love Well with New Balance

A tale of two sweethearts for you as we head toward Valentine’s Day. My sister and brother-in-law canceled their gym memberships in tandem this year. A kind of anti-resolution; they both had valid reasons for throwing in the proverbial gym towel. She was sick of the poorly disguised gawking. A few unscrupulous characters took up residence on the machines directly across from the ellipticals and only exercised their eyes. Ew! My brother-in-law, on the other hand, was tired of being pushed off his machine by mirror-loving gym rats insisting, “Just need to get my reps in, brah,” every time he paused to take a breath.

Well, we’re here to tell you that if you plan properly and pick the right location, traveling during the off-season can be the very best way to travel. Not only will you save money, but you can get a different view of some places than most tourists get, making your trip more practical and more unique.
