Tuesday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at Tuesday’s business headlines.

Affordable cities

Indianapolis and Fort Wayne got honorable mentions for most affordable places to live.

Forbes put together a list of cities to gauge affordability, including the median income of that city, average home costs and median real estate taxes.

Detroit was named the most affordable housing market in the nation.

Simon earnings

The Simon Property CEO is expecting this year to be better than last, as some retailers start to think about opening new stores.

However, CEO David Simon cautioned, “it’s going to take some time” to get back to 2019 levels.

He mentioned Florida as one example of a positive sign, saying business at its malls and outlet centers is “clicking along,” citing “real domestic traffic increases.”

Fitbit features

The new Fitbit app will let users log or automatically import blood glucose readings to let those with diabetes track key health information in one place.

You can connect the OneTouch Reveal app from Lifescan with support for other meters and apps coming soon. This information gets visualized and is shown alongside other metrics, like physical activity, food and sleep.

Delta middle seat

Delta Airlines will continue to block out the middle seats on its aircraft through April, becoming the only major carrier to continue doing so.

The airlines will continue to create speace between passengers while also limiting overall capacity on all its flights to ensure “customers can confidently plan and book their spring travel,” until at least April 30.

Delta is one of the only major airlines to keep the policy in place amid the ongoing pandemic.
