Popping your smartphone into a headset is the most basic form of virtual reality technology, but of those devices, the Google Daydream View is a high-quality option. Right now, the 2017 Daydream View is 60 percent off and the 2016 Daydream View is 62 percent off through Verizon, making it a good time to purchase either device if you've been eyeing a simple mobile VR accessory. The 2017 version comes in at $40, down from $100 at regular price, while the 2016 device is $30, down from $80. 

Currently, Verizon seems to be the only place where this pricing is offered, in an apparent effort to get rid of old stock. Note: to see the reduced price, you have to head to the shopping cart. You don't have to be a wireless subscriber with Verizon, however — just check out as a guest.

Google's $99 2017 Daydream View is only available in its Coral color. If you'd prefer a different color and a $10 reduction in price, there's also a strong argument to be made for the 2016 Daydream View —  the specs are quite similar, and some even prefer the 2016 Daydream View's lenses over the custom fresnel setup in the 2017.

Both 2017 and 2016 versions are available on sale at Verizon, not just the 2016 Daydream View.
