The green Apple Watch Series 7 costs $ 300 for the first time ever

Update June 8 at 10:47 ET: Our main deal on the Vizio 5.1.2 soundbar was unfortunately sold out. So we replaced it with one on the Apple Watch Series 7 which we feel is just as appealing.

We have some good news today for Apple fans: For the first time ever, the Apple Watch Series 7 sells for only $ 300 at Amazon instead of $ 399. That discount is available on the green, 41mm, GPS-equipped model, though you can also buy other colors for $ 329. If you have larger wrists, the 45mm GPS-enabled wearable is on sale for $ 359. Whichever model you buy, each of them has an always-on screen that is larger than its predecessors, making the screens easier to read in an instant. The latest Apple wearable comes with fast charging and IP6X dust resistance. Read our review.

In the market for a budget-friendly smartphone? Then you might want to check out today’s offer on the Samsung Galaxy A53, which is currently on sale for only $ 349.99 ($ ​​100 off) at Amazon with delayed shipping. The A53 5G is our favorite Android smartphone for under $ 500, namely because it is a versatile excellent device that offers several impressive features for the price. This includes a 6.5-inch OLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate for a faster and smoother experience, as well as battery life throughout the day. In addition, its 64 MP main camera stands out among mid-range phones thanks to optical image stabilization, which allows your images to look sharper when the light is not good.

However, our favorite feature is the fact that Samsung promises five years of security updates – the longest software support policy offered by Android phone manufacturers. That, combined with Samsung’s four-year promise of Android OS version updates and an IP67 dust and water resistance rating, means this phone will last a long time. Read our review.

Samsung Galaxy A53 5G (128 GB, unlocked)

The A53 5G is a good all-rounder for its $ 449 MSRP, delivering solid performance, all-day battery life, a 6.5-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and an IP67 rating.

If you’ve wanted the AirPods Pro, but are turned down by a price tag of almost $ 200, you may want to check out the OnePlus Buds Pro. These genuine wireless earbuds offer better noise reduction and a superior IP55 rating for dust and water resistance, but for far less money. Typically $ 149.99, Amazon currently sells the real wireless earbuds in either black or white for $ 119.99 – record low – with the wireless charging cover included.

Not only do these earbuds sound good, but also voice call performance is better than others in this price range. They are light and comfortable, and we consider them to be among the best noise-reducing knobs on the market. They do not fit well for large ears, noted Chris Welch in his review. But other than that, they are generally good and they give a lot for the money. Read our review.

OnePlus Buds Pro

While not denying their AirPods similarity, the OnePlus Buds Pro manages to like Apple’s top-tier earphones in comfort and best sound quality.

If you want to add some color and artistic lighting to your room, the Nanoleaf Lines Smarter Kit is a great option. The set contains nine lines, which are backlit LED light beams that can be controlled via Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit or Google Assistant, and they support the Matter smart home standard. The lines can display a variety of colors and patterns as well as a variety of preloaded scenes that you can activate with the push of a button or voice command.

As a result, you can create a soothing sunset in your living room or a nightclub atmosphere that feels more real, since these lights are also able to pulsate in real time with your music. Additionally, if you choose to mount them behind the TV or game monitor, you can turn on a screen mirror feature that asks the lights to match the colors that are actively displayed on the screen.

Unfortunately, you can not connect the lights with other Nanoleaf panels given their unique design, and the set does not come particularly cheap at $ 200. Fortunately, however, you can buy the Smarter Kit right now for only $ 179.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. It’s just a modest $ 20 off their normal price estimate, but it’s also the lowest price we’ve seen. Read our review.

Nanoleaf Lines Smarter Kit

The Nanoleaf Lines Smarter Kit comes with an adapter and nine LED light beams, so you can color your wall in a variety of patterns. The lights can also be synchronized with your music and mirror the colors of the screen or use a selection of pre-loaded scenes via a companion app.

For those who can live without noise reduction in a pair of real wireless earbuds, Anker’s Soundcore Liberty Air 2 represents a huge value for less than $ 40. They are some of the best budget-friendly earbuds you can buy right now, especially given that they are currently on sale through Amazon and Soundcore for $ 38.99 instead of $ 79.99.

Liberty Air 2 is worth considering if you make a lot of voice calls, primarily because they offer good microphone performance for the price. They also impressed us with their sound quality and long battery life, which lasts up to seven hours without a cover or up to 28 hours with it. If you can live with the sometimes picky pressure controls, these are otherwise solid earplugs that will not break the bank.
