Android Wear and Apple Watch may have the headlines, but they're not the only two smartwatch players in town. Back before either showed up to the party, a small team broke Kickstarter records to create an intelligent wristwatch with an e-ink display. A few years later, they did it again, except this time, in color.
That second campaign gave rise to the Pebble Time, an updated model with an improved, colorful screen and a smarter interface. The watch has an MSRP of $199.99, but the general street price is closer to $150. Still, you might want to turn your eye toward Groupon. Read More
I love my Nexus 7 2013. I bought it the day it was released in the US, shipped it over to Lebanon, and have used it daily ever since I received it. I find it to be the perfect size for reading and browsing, especially if you like holding your tablets with one hand. (I walk around reading on mine, I'm a bit weird like that.) The build quality also makes it awesome to throw on a bed or sofa without worrying about something getting loose or broken inside. It's also recently got Marshmallow, which makes it more up to date than most tablets out there. Read More
Want a 2013 Nexus 7? If you're still getting your 7-inch Nexus devices confused, think of this as the good one. Grabbing one now may be a much faster way to get Marshmallow than waiting on an update. Read More
The 2013 Nexus 7 may not see many more updates now that it has received Marshmallow, but it's still one of the best Android tablets out there. It's small, it's capable of running most apps, and it's cheap. Read More
So you're interested in Android TV, but the $199 Shield seems too spendy? Well, you can grab a Nexus Player for less than $50 on Groupon. The deal is for $49.99, but there's a coupon code that can take a few more bucks off. Read More
Alright, the Chromecast may not rank high on the list of devices you're waiting to catch a deal on. $35 isn't the kind of price that has you setting aside paychecks. A kid could get one relatively quickly just by saving up their allowance.
But what if you could get one for $20? That's nearly half off, and the price is low enough to be well into the impulse buy category. Really, what other tech product can you spend so little on and get so much use out of in return? Okay, maybe a 4-port USB Quick Charger 2.0 car charger. Read More
Looking for a quick and easy way to set someone up with a smartphone? Then head over to Groupon, which is currently offering an impressive entry-level bundle for just a Benjamin. The current deal offers the original Moto E (2013), a SOL portable Bluetooth speaker, and a Tracfone SIM card with 1200 minutes for $94.99. Is that still not enough for you? Fine, take a car charger as well.
The "full" price is $99.99, but add the coupon "GOODS5" at checkout for an extra five bucks off. Groupon claims that the bundle is worth $420 at retail, which is a little generous; I count $90 for the first-gen Moto E at current rates, about $50 for the SOL Republic speaker (according to Amazon), approximately $180 worth of Tracfone airtime, and maybe $15 for the car charger, for a total of $335.

If you've got a phone that supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge, then you may be doing yourself a great disservice by using a "standard" wall charger. Quick Charge is the only way to go on phones that support the feature, and for a limited time you can grab Motorola's Turbo Charger for just $9.99 plus shipping from Groupon.
That's a pretty solid price considering you can't seem to find this particular charger for less than $35. Shipping was $3.99 for me, which seems to be pretty standard across the board.
According to the listing there are "limited quantities available," so if you plan on picking one up, I'd probably do it now. Read More
Even at full price, you could stick a [Deal Alert] tag on just about any box with a Chromecast in it. I mean, the thing costs $35 bucks and turns any TV from a blank screen to something that can play most of what us cord cutting types want to watch these days.
Of course, slashing that price in half makes it even more of a deal. We've seen Groupon offer the Chromecast for just $20 before, but the deal is back, and it's still a great buy.
Even if you don't generally like refurbished things, we're talking about something you're going to stick in the back of your TV and never look at again. Read More
The 2013 Nexus 7 might not be available from Google anymore, but it's still one of the best devices in its form factor. There are a lot of impressive deals available for this tablet, usually falling well below the $150 mark. So it is with one of Groupon's deals today: you can grab a 16GB WiFi N7 for $149.99, but if you add in the coupon code sale3 to the mix before you check out, you can take an extra $15 off that price.
Yes, there's a coupon on Groupon. No one was more surprised than I.
Thanks to Groupon's $25 and over policy, shipping is free... Read More
