The LG G Watch R, which David thinks is the best Android Wear has to offer for now, is an interesting device - it's an Android Wear device that has a circular screen, one that's actually a circle, escaping the "flat tire" design choice Motorola had to make for the Moto 360. But it also has a big funky angled bezel with numbers on it (like some real watches). Still, it's a solid device for the burgeoning category, with a 1.3" POLED display and 410mAh battery.
Andru is probably the most adorable power adapter in the universe. The bugdroid-inspired plug has movable arms, flexible antennae, and light-up eyes (blue means charging, white is for standby), making it a perfect desk charger and about 100 times more dynamic than the average power brick.
The 2.5" adapter has 5V/1A DC output, and normally costs $25 each for an Andru, Andru Dark, Andru Chill, or Andra (pink) unit. In preparation for holiday shopping (or just for fun, who knows?) PowerbyGen is offering all four variants together for just $65, about $35 off the normal price of a full set.
The power's out. This road trip will never end. Camping, again? Fine.
Whatever the reason, sometimes you just need extra power when there's no outlet in sight. In those instances, you're going to want the biggest, fattest external battery pack you can find. And if you have to share it, or you have multiple devices, then you're going to want something with more than one USB port.
If you head over to StackSocial and happen to live in the US, you can currently get a Limefuel LP200X battery pack with a whopping 20,000mAh of juice.
The Fleksy gesture-based, third-party keyboard is currently on sale for 75% off, which brings the cost down to 99 cents. It will remain at this price until Friday while the company celebrates its latest round of good fortune.
Fleksy has secured $2 million in funding from Digital Garage, Eniac Ventures, Middleland Capital, Highland Capital Partners, Militello Capital, and other investors. This comes less than a year after the product exited beta back in December of 2013, and it follows last month's announcement of the keyboard's first OEM partnership (it will come installed on the Samsung Gear S).
Amazon's Coins program, which basically trades real money for digital currency that can only be used on the Amazon Appstore, has become surprisingly popular. That probably has a lot to do with the massive amount of Coins that Amazon has given away in various promotions, but it doesn't hurt that the company recently integrated the Appstore with the rest of Amazon. If you're digging Amazon's ecosystem, the retailer is offering discounts of up to 20% on Amazon Coins.
Today's Amazon Gold Box deal of the day can help anyone in need of a portable Bluetooth speaker save quite a bit of money. Creative Labs' Airwave speakers are currently reduced down to just $29.99. This is a savings of $70 off the MSRP. That's right, 70%. You don't see discounts like that often (or at least not as often as we'd like).
The Airwave is available in five colors, but only three are going for $29.99: a grey that looks pretty black, a blue that looks kinda purple, and black & white.
Camping season is pretty much over for most of us, but that doesn't mean we've stopped leaving the comfort of our homes to venture into the great unknown. One thing we've got to be sure of is that our bevy of gadgets can survive between sessions with their charging cables. If you'd like to keep your phone, tablet, and assorted wearables alive and kicking, Amazon is offering a pretty sweet deal on the Anker Astro E5 15000mAh Dual USB Portable Charger.
Update: Sometimes these deals end as soon as we can get a post up. The refurbished Chromecasts are now showing up as out of stock.
I know the Chromecast isn't exactly what we would call an expensive gadget, but I like to save money wherever I can, and since you clicked on this headline, I can see that you like to too. So here's what you came here to know. Groupon is currently offering refurbished Chromecasts for just $25 to anyone living in the continental US.
LG went a long time between tablets, but when they returned to the market with the G Pad 8.3 last year, they did so in style. This metal-clad tablet didn't have the latest and greatest processor, but it made up for it with a sleek mid-sized design, 2GB of RAM, and extras like a MicroSD card slot. LG has since transitioned to more budget-oriented models (not unlike Samsung's main Galaxy Tab series), but you can pick up the original for $224.90 at Newegg today.
The new Moto X isn't available for purchase from Motorola's just yet, but the company is holding a promotion that will let anyone with a valid .edu email address get $50 off the regular price once it does go on sale. This applies for students, teachers, and alumni alike, similar to the last time Motorola offered up this discount for the previous model. Note, only one promotional code will work per email address, and there's a chance it won't go through if you jumped on this offer for the previous model.
