[Deal Alert] Samsung SmartThings Hub 25% off on Amazon, now $74.99

There are plenty of companies building smart hubs for your home, but it's safe to say that SmartThings, which was bought by Samsung, is one of the most popular. That's not only due to the wide range of connectivity options it has, like both ZigBee and Z-Wave, and the 10-hour backup battery life, but also thanks to the big number of smart home gadgets that are compatible with it. Even better, the community is very active and usually figures out a way, whenever technically possible, to add compatibility to brands and accessories that aren't supported officially.

One of the last companies to integrate with SmartThings is Google and its Google Home speaker / voice control hub.

[Update: All colors ~$390] [Deal Alert] Sony Xperia X down to $399 ($81 off) on Amazon

Sony has tried more than once to wedge themselves into the North American smartphone market, but often to no avail. Perhaps in an effort to clear stock for their recently-released Xperia XZ and X Compact, Sony is now offering the Xperia X for $399 on Amazon.

Even at that price, I'm not sure I would recommend this phone. If you read our review of the device, you'll know that it didn't impress us.

[Deal Alert] Get a black 42mm Moto 360 2nd Gen for just $199.99 from Amazon ($100 off)

Even though it's over a year old now, the second-gen Moto 360 is still a competitive Android Wear smartwatch, especially since Moto announced it won't be releasing any new smartwatches this year. We've seen a few deals for various models of the 360 in the past few weeks, but none that were new in box have been this cheap before. Now, you can get a new, 42mm Moto 360 2nd Gen in black for just $199.99 on Amazon.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Alexa-powered Triby portable speaker only $99.99 on Amazon (50% off)

Tell me your thoughts on the Amazon Echo. Do you like the product but don't buy into the Amazon ecosystem? Are you into the concept but don't want a black plastic cylinder taking up shelf space in your home? In case of the former, you might want to wait for Google Home. But if you're feeling the latter, then maybe you should check out the Triby portable speaker that comes with Alexa built-in.

Sony's Xperia XZ is now officially available in the US for a whopping $700

Sony Mobile, despite its lackluster presence here for the past few years, is gradually re-entering the US market. The Japanese company's latest flagship, the Xperia XZ, went up for pre-order a little over a week ago, and it's now available for purchase. Unfortunately, at $700, I don't see the XZ helping Sony's dwindling smartphone business much.

[Deal Alert] Get a 128GB Samsung EVO microSD card for just $32.90 at Amazon

Almost every Android flagship these days has a microSD slot (we're looking at you, Google), which means that for most people, storage is easily expandable.

Case in point: this 128GB Samsung EVO microSD card retailed for $109.99 less than two years ago, and now you can pick one up for just $33 on Amazon.

Twitch Prime provides ad-free Twitch streaming and other goodies with your Amazon Prime subscription

Amazon has owned streaming giant Twitch since 2014, but besides a Fire TV app, you would be hard-pressed to find evidence of Amazon's handywork. Today that changes, with Twitch announcing their new premium subscription, Twitch Prime. And as you may guess from the title, it comes free with an Amazon Prime subscription.

To put it simply, Twitch Prime is a bit similar to YouTube Red. You get free game content every month (such as indie games or DLC), as well as discounts on new games sold by Amazon during the pre-order period and first two weeks of launch. As far as Twitch itself, you will get exclusive emotes and a chat badge, ad-free viewing, and a free channel subscription every 30 days.

[Deal Alert] Withings Body Cardio smart scale down to $135 on Amazon (25% off)

When I reviewed the Withings Body Cardio scale just this past Saturday, I came away impressed by most things it could do, but rather let down by its price. At $179.95, I didn't think there were enough reasons to get the Body Cardio instead of the regular Body scale, which cost $129.95. I found the heart rate monitoring rather pointless while standing up and the Pulse Wave Velocity measure an interesting feature but with limited usefulness and accuracy.

My last sentences of the post were, and I quote, "Withings smart scales do drop their prices sometimes, so if you happen to find the Body Cardio around the same price as the regular Body, go for it.
