Wireless headphones are getting a lot of attention these days in light of a certain phone manufacture's 'brave' decision to remove headphone jacks, but a good wired set of buds can often be found at much lower prices. Such is the case today with the Bose SoundSport In-Ear Headphones which are on sale for just $40 right now at Best Buy. With an MSRP of $99 and a street price of around $90, that's a killer deal on a very well-reviewed set of earbuds. In fact, it's less than a third of the price of these headphone's wireless counterpart. Read More
The Nextbit Robin is one of the few crowdfunded smartphones that have actually shipped. After being released earlier this year, we gave it solid marks for its dual front-facing speakers and design. Now you can grab your very own Nextbit Robin for only $169.99, a whopping $130 off the $300 MSRP (and $30 off the normal Amazon price). Read More
Chinese manufacturer LeEco made a splash with its US debut, even if it wasn't a particularly promising one. Today it has its sights set squarely on the mid-range market with $100 discounts on both of the debut American phones: the Le S3 and Le Pro3. (And yes, after penning down an initial writeup for the latter, I am LeTired of this LeNaming scheme.) That brings the pricing down to just $149 and $299, respectively, assuming you can snag one of the phones once the sale starts at 10 AM Pacific time. Read More
The Fossil Q is a little over a year old at this point, and is notable for being the first Android Wear watch from a well-known mechanical watch maker. It features a 360x326 round display (unfortunately with a flat tire), an Intel Atom CPU, IP67 water protection, and a 400mAh battery.
Now you can snag a Fossil Q Founder for $189.99 on Amazon, a decent drop from the $275 MSRP. Not a bad deal, although I'm not sure if I would get it over the Huawei Watch with its frequent price drops. Still, if you're looking for a shiny new Android Wear device from an actual watch company, this is a good option. Read More
Sony, for a couple of years, was my very favorite smartphone manufacturer. The Z3 was, in my opinion, the best smartphone of its generation. I have since moved on to a Nexus 6P, but my wife still uses my old Z3 and I still miss its epic battery life and water resistance.
The Japanese manufacturer has hit a bit of a rough patch the last couple of years, but they are still cranking out phones, and I'd wager some of you readers are still on team Sony, lusting after their hardware.
If that's the case, then you really should check out the sale going on over at Amazon today. Read More
The Huawei Watch is generally regarded as one of the best AW watches currently available, but it usually commands a high price tag. Although the MSRP was originally $499, most models have lowered in price since release. At least one of the versions, the Gold/Sapphire model, has finally dropped under $200. Read More
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. Read More
Jaybird is known for making some of the best earbuds on the market, and the X2 is no exception. These earbuds have gone on sale more and more recently, with them dropping to $79.99 in July on Amazon Prime, and down to $69.99 at Best Buy a month later. Once again, the Jaybird X2 is only $79.99, this time at Target. Read More
The original Pebble predates Android Wear, and since the first model, the Pebble line has continued to improve and develop. One of their newest watches, the Pebble Time Round, has dropped in price significantly on Amazon. It's now only $113 for the Silver model on Amazon, almost half off from its original price of $199.
The Time Round has many of the features of their Pebble Time wearable, with the notable exception of having a circular screen. The watch has an always-on color e-paper display, giving it an estimated battery life of two days. It also has a step and sleep tracker, downloadable watchfaces, and of course the massive library of Pebble applications. Read More
The night sky isn't just filled with stars. The naked eye in most areas of the world (barring massive light pollution) can spot at least a few galaxies, nebulas, planets, and even artificial satellites like the International Space Station. If you have ever wondered what is floating in the sky above you, Star Walk 2 is a great tool - and it's on sale! Read More
