The Apple Watch Series 9 is back to $329, plus the rest of the week’s best tech deals

موقع شبرون للتقنية وأخبار العالم- متابعات تقنية:

The big news in tech right now is CES in Las Vegas and our team has been on the ground all week checking out the new products. A surprising amount of what we saw is already available for purchase, but very few of those things are discounted. As for what is on sale, this turned out to be a decent week for deals on current model devices, with some hitting all-time lows. The Google Pixel 8 smartphones are back to Black Friday lows, as is one of our favorite fitness trackers. A set of Tile trackers is cheaper than ever and the Apple Watch Series 9 has returned to $329. Here are the best tech deals from this week that you can still get today.

Thanks to an 18 percent discount at Amazon, the 41mm Apple Watch Series 9 is back down to $329. That’s close to an all-time low, though the smartwatch did drop to $310 briefly in December. This week’s discount applies to a most of the colorways and the larger 45mm case size, though the models may start selling out, if history is any indicator. The wearable is our top pick for an Apple Watch and the wearable we recommend over every brand out there. It has the fitness and health tracking features Apple Watches are known for, plus handy integration with your iPhone. New for the Series 9 is the Double Tap feature which lets you answer calls and start timers just by pinching.

Tile

Walmart is offering a four-pack of Tile Mate tags in gray for $38. These trackers retail for $25 each when not on sale (though they often go for around $17), so this represents a 62 percent discount off the full sticker price. If you’re tired of misplacing your keys or want to easily locate your jacket or backpack, these handy fobs can help. 

We tested a bunch of the more popular Bluetooth trackers and found a lot to like in Tile’s version. The Tile Mate is both louder than Apple’s AirTags and rings longer when you ping it from the app. The finding network is nowhere near as vast as Apple’s, but active Tile users number in the millions so the number of devices that are anonymously searching for your lost tag is sizable. It only took a few minutes longer to find a Tile tracker versus the AirTag, and the location was nearly as precise. Plus Tile works with Android phones.

Apple

The Beats Fit Pro earbuds are our pick for the best workout wireless earbuds in our guide. Right now, the buds in Volt Yellow, Coral Pink and Tidal Blue are down to $160, which matches their all-time low price. The traditional colors like grey and black are currently 10 percent off. 

The buds work with both Apple and Android phones and support multipoint connectivity allowing them to maintain a connection to multiple devices at once. The IPX4 water resistance rating and secure yet comfortable fit make them ideal for workouts. The active noise cancellation will keep you immersed in your playlist when you’re on the treadmill but if you’re out on a run in the real world, transparancy mode will keep you aware of what’s around you as you listen.

Amazon is selling a few different Google Pixel phones at a discount this week. That includes the Google Pixel 8 which is back down to its Black Friday low of $549, or 21 percent off the $699 MSRP. We think the Google Pixel 8 is the best Android smartphone you can buy at the moment. Google’s latest handset combines a bright display, improved cameras and useful AI tools to make your photos and videos even better. Plus Google has committed to seven years of software support for the Pixel 8, longer than any other Android phone on the market. 

Our favorite midrange Android smartphone is the Pixel 7a, which is currently 20 percent off and down to $399 from $499. That’s about $25 more than its all-time low, but still a lot of phone for the price.

Google

The Google Pixel watch is $50 off at Target and Amazon, bringing it to $300. We think Google’s latest smartwatch is a big improvement over the previous generation, with a longer-lasting battery, new fitness sensors and a stress management feature that identifies and helps you diffuse tense moments in your day. And like the first Pixel watch, this one is beautifully designed.

Sling TV

Sling TV is offering a half price deal on your first month of service. You can get Sling Blue or Sling Orange — two packages with slightly different channel offerings — for $20 for the first month, or get the two combined for $27.50. The single packages usually for $40 per month or $55 monthly for the combo. Sling TV is one of the many ways to watch live TV channels, including sports and news stations, without having the commitment or higher price of cable and unlike cable, you can cancel fairly painlessly with no penalty. We named Sling a top pick in our live TV streaming guide because it has a clean interface, good recommendations based on your watch history and lets you customize your channels with a variety of add-on packages and premiums.

Dashlane

The premium plan for Dashlane’s password manager is on sale for $40 per year, as part of a New Year’s offer when you use the code NY24. The plan typically costs $60 annually making this a 40 percent discount. Dashlane is one of our top recommended password managers in our guide and the plan even includes VPN access. One thing to note is the lack of support for Linux.

Kasa Smart

The budget pick we recommended in our smart lights guide are even more wallet-friendly thanks to a discount and coupon at Amazon. A four-pack of the TP-Link Kasa Smart WiFi light bulbs are down to $26, which puts it back to the low it hit for Black Friday. We like that they’re easy to install and remain reliably connected, plus their companion mobile app is clean and easy to use. You can adjust teh warmth of a white light or pick from endless gradations of different colors. They also allow you to set schedules and program routines either through Kasa’s app or through Amazon or Google’s smart home platforms.

The latest addition to our power bank guide is the Nimble Champ Pro which we found to deliver a super fast charge from a more eco-friendly package. It’s down to $76 from the manufacturer, which is a 24 percent discount of the $100 MSRP. It has two USB-C ports, both of which allow to you charge a device or recharge the battery itself. The recycled material has a cool speckled look and there’s an attached lanyard, which may not serve much of a functional purpose but looks nifty nonetheless. But the real reason to keep this one on hand is its ability to refill your smartphone when you’re far from an outlet. In our tests, it filled the battery on a Galaxy S23 Ultra from five to 100 percent in under an hour.

Samsung

We mention Samsung’s T9 external SSD for giving you more storage for an iPad with USB-C and it’s the newer version of the drive we recommend in our storage guide. The portable SSD has a slick, palm-sized design, fast speeds of up to 2,000MB/s and good modes of data protection. We haven’t tested these just yet, but were big fans of the previous T7 generation, and Samsung says these are twice as fast.

Anker’s tiny Nano Power Bank will lend a quick partial charge to an Android phone (or an iPhone 15) via the foldable USB-C connector. Right now it’s down to just over $20 instead of the $30 list price. We’ve seen it go this low before, but that deal was for Prime members only. Anyone can snag this discount. It’s one of the picks in our battery bank guide because it’s terribly easy to toss it in a pack and always have a quick refill when you need it.

Logitech

Logitech’s Pebble mouse made the list in our guide to productivity mice. Logitech recently came out with a new generation, the Pebble Mouse 2 M350s, which adds a customizable middle scroll button, a recycled-materials build and new colors. Right now Amazon is selling the mouse for $25, which is its lowest price yet and 17 percent off. In addition to the new features, the mouse switches between three devices, clicks silently and runs for up to two years on a single AA battery. 

A few more Logitech goodies are on sale too right now, including the pink version of a webcam that got a shoutout in our guide to those devices.
