The original ASUS Zenwatch isn't the best Android Wear device on the market. It does, however, happen to be one of the cheapest options available and is a great entry-level option for someone wanting to see what this smartwatch craze is all about.
The current retail price on the Zenwatch hovers in the $130 to $150 range. Right now you can grab one on B&H for a significantly lower price of $99.99. That's a good price for a smartwatch with a heart rate sensor, a premium leather band, and pretty solid reviews.
There are a couple of small caveats to keep in mind though. Read More
The amount of technology and specs that you can get for less than $200 nowadays is staggering. Do you remember when we were gushing over quad-core processors and 720p displays in flagships that cost over $600 and $700? Well, now those specs count in the lower end of the smartphone market, or at best the lower midrange.
Take the BLU Vivo XL for example. It was just announced at CES at the beginning of the month. Read More
Craving some juice? How about some lemon juice? Well, I've got ZeroLemons to satiate you and your phone. I know that sounds like a bad deal, but ZeroLemon actually makes really good products that help you avoid any situation in which your phone could turn into a useless juiceless lemon. And today's deals get you some of the best value for your bucks from the company's portfolio.
First up is the 10,000mAh solar battery charger that we've seen sit at $26 at its lowest. It has 2A and 1A output ports so you can charge one phone or accessory faster than another, although this isn't Quick Charge. Read More
Are MicroSD cards cheap nowadays or what? I remember buying my first 128MB (that's MEGAbytes) card sometime in 2005 and here we are talking about affordable 128GB cards in 2016! If you're good at math, you'd know that we multiplied the storage by a thousand and something and we're still somewhere in the same price ballpark. Crazy.
This Lexar 128GB is a Class 10 card that can read files at up to 95MB/s and write at up to 20MB/s. It comes with a USB 3.0 reader too so you can transfer your files quickly to a computer. It's using the old packaging though, which apparently makes it ripe for discounts. Read More
Amazon UK is thankful. The company was ranked number one in the customer satisfaction index in the UK and to celebrate, it has decided to raise satisfaction even more. Today only, Friday January 22, users can enter promo code BIGTHANKS at checkout to take £10 off any order over £50. That includes single items or multiple items that total more than £50.
Amazon's rules explain that the code is valid once per customer and only applies to items that are shipped and sold by Amazon (ie those that show up as fulfilled by Amazon or Amazon Marketplace aren't eligible). Other items that don't count are baby formula, digital goods, gift cards, Amazon Pantry products, and shipping and handling charges. Read More
Freeee Stuff!!! Hooray!
Google has three more free albums on Google Play Music and also has discounted a ton of other ones to just 99 cents. Time to pad that music collection my fellow cheapskates, this is a great way to spend all those Google Opinion Reward credits you've been hoarding (they expire after a year BTW, so best use 'em before you lose 'em).
Here are the free albums
And here are the ones you have to pay for, but only $0.99. Read More
Even though it's been out for a while now, the LG G Watch Urbane is still one of the most premium Android Wear devices you can buy. Its normal price currently sits around $250, but today you can pick one up for just $200 on BuyDig via eBay. We posted this deal a couple of weeks back, but that was just days after the holidays and I expect that some of you were too broke or hung over to notice. You're welcome.
The device ships free anywhere in the US and retail tax is only charged in the state of New Jersey. Read More
Bluetooth speakers are cool. You can leave them at your desk, put them around the house, take them out to the garden, and still listen to music and audio while you're working or relaxing. This Braven 770 speaker is even cooler because it sports IPX5 water resistance so you shouldn't be afraid to bring it to the poolside, put it next to the kitchen sink, or listen to it while you shower. It also has 12 hours of battery life and comes in a spiffy black aluminum grade housing with nice control volumes on the side.
Braven is brave enough to say that the included 1400mAh battery can be used as a portable power bank at 1A output, but we all know that you're smart enough not to use that and you've instead grabbed a real external battery for your phone, but I guess you can still say that this is a feature.

The LG G4 is still a fine device, even though the G5 is expected to be unveiled in the not too distant future. The price of this device is getting pretty compelling, and the sale going on at B&H Photo right now makes it hard to pass up. You can grab an unlocked LG G4 for a mere $349.95, which is $100 less than B&H usually sells it for. You'll have to move quickly, though. Read More
When we wrote about our favorite apps to use during 2015, one of my picks was Enpass Password Manager. Many of you had lots of questions about that choice, asking me to explain my reasoning behind not liking LastPass or to compare Enpass to other similar solutions. If you were intrigued by Enpass then and wanted to either give it a try or at least look into how it works, now's your chance to do so. Enpass' Pro mobile license is free to unlock today on Android and all I can say is that I've been happy with it for almost a year and I don't regret plucking the full $9.99. Read More
