These are the news you should know this week:

TOTO Asia Oceania celebrates its past and future at June Roadshow event

To celebrate the success of TOTO WASHLET toilet system since its debut 40 years ago, TOTO Asia Oceania will host a roadshow event from 17 to 23 June at the Level 1 of Waterway Point Main Atrium. The event will introduce the latest WASHLET models and educate consumers on the line’s unique hygienic benefits.

Along with introducing homeowners to the WASHLET’s proud history, the roadshow event will unveil the next generation of lavatory luxury: the TOTO Neorest NX II. This makes a compelling statement with its soft elliptical contours and tankless profile that is inspired by the natural beauty of pebbles shaped by water. The simple elegance of its design belies a wealth of sophisticated features, including automatic open/close with automatic flushing, an integrated WASHLET personal cleansing system complete with warm-air dryer, an instantly heated seat, and soft backlighting for night-time use.

Priced at US$13,000, the NX II doesn’t stop with a top-flight array of amenities. Its approach to sanitation is built around the Actilight, an integrated UV light that works in concert with electrolysed water and the bowl’s titanium dioxide/zirconium glaze to continuously break down waste particles within the bowl, even when it is not in use. A pre-mist applied while the seat opens prepares the bowl for efficient flushing, and electrolysed water sanitises the bowl after flushing.

You might want to consider participating in the event because the participants are in for a big treat! The most popular WASHLET models will be available at huge discounts only at the roadshow! Model TCF6630SP will be available for just S$570, a 60% discount from its usual retail price; while other models will start at just S$837, at 40% discount.

Fitbit announces availability of Ace 2 in Singapore

Stay healthy and fit with the family as Fitbit Ace 2 will encourage you and the kids to spend more active time together. Also, the device will allow you to safeguard your kids’ privacy and review activity in the new Fitbit family account.

Adding up to its new features, Ace 2 has a new swim-proof design with a bumper to protect the screen during kid-related activities all day long and is available in fun and bold kid-friendly colours and accessories that include patterned designs. Ace 2 debuts new animated clock faces2, motivating challenges to keep kids moving, and colourful avatars, and cover photos to personalise their profiles within the Fitbit app.

You can ensure that you keep track of your kids’ activities as Fitbit considered privacy throughout the user experience for both parents and kids. Parental consent is required to create an account for kids, and Fitbit’s family account allows you to approve who your children connect with, and view activity and progress. As parents, you can also help manage what stats your child sees in the app to only include what motivates them most.

Fitbit Ace 2 will be available at S$118 starting June in Singapore across retailers—including Axtro Sports, Best Denki, Challenger, Courts, Harvey Norman, Metro, e-Gadgets, and Lazada—in watermelon with teal clasp or night sky with neon yellow clasp. Ace 2 accessories come in classic silicone bands in bold energetic and kid-friendly colours: grape, night sky and neon yellow, and watermelon and teal, as well as playful printed bands featuring motivational messages and active graphics designed for kids (black and white “go!” and two-toned teal “jazz”).
