Although robot vacuums used to cost an arm and a leg, they're increasingly becoming commonplace. You can grab an automated cleaner for about as much as the price of a quality traditional upright vac without having to put the work in to keep your house clean. If you have yet to pick up a robot vacuum, Eufy's lineup is a great place to start, and you can choose between two of its best models in today's Deal of the Day at Amazon.
In December of 2019, several of the biggest companies in tech — including Apple, Google, and Amazon — joined the Zigbee Alliance to establish a new standard for smart home technology. Project Connected Home over IP, or "CHIP," was aimed at improving interoperability and increasing security between gadgets from different brands. CHIP is finally nearing completion, and it's getting a new name and logo to help consumers identify secure IoT tech.
Aukey is among our favorite brands when it comes to affordable and powerful chargers, but some evidence is mounting that legitimate reviews might not be enough for the company. A 7GB data leak on an unsecured Chinese server (spotted by SafetyDetectives) exposed a number of Amazon sellers offering customers free products in exchange for favorable reviews, and it looks like Aukey is one of the companies caught in the middle of this scheme. Amazon has taken action and removed almost all products sold by the company.
While some phones include top-tier chargers in the box, others — we're looking at you, Samsung — have stopped bundling cables altogether. Thankfully, companies like Anker make some of the best gadgets around for keeping all of your devices powered up. If you require some new charging gear, Anker has you covered with today's Deal of the Day at Amazon.
Samsung makes some of the best smartwatches for Android, especially if you pair it using one of its phones. The Galaxy Watch Active 2 might not be the newest wearable on the block, but it's still a great choice — particularly since you can regularly find it for far less than its original MSRP. Today, you can grab it for just $180, an all-new low on one of Samsung's best fitness-focused watches.
Since it first began selling true wireless earbuds a few years ago, Anker has mostly stuck to the lower end of the market, offering excellent headphones at affordable prices. That all changed when the company introduced its new Liberty Air 2 Pro earbuds earlier this year, combining solid sound quality with a premium design and active noise-cancellation. Right now, you can grab a pair of the Liberty Air 2 Pros in a multitude of colors for just $100 at both Amazon and Best Buy.
Amazon wants you to buy pretty much everything on its site, from shoes to ships to ceiling wax. But especially the shoes, at least with the latest update to the Android shopping app. It brings support for a new Amazon Closet feature, which is kind of like a Pandora recommendation system for clothing.
If you've been shopping for a new smartwatch to pair with your Android phone, one name has probably kept appearing over and over again. Mobvoi's entire TicWatch lineup is routinely called the best wearable tech for fans of Google's mobile OS, but with one major catch: the price. If you're looking for a quality fitness tracker for your phone but don't want to break the bank, two of Mobvoi's gadgets are on sale today for under $100.
Amazon's Alexa has been put into basically every product imaginable from smoke detectors to toilets. The goal, apparently, is to get Alexa into as many places as possible, so putting Alexa in glasses seemed like the next logical step. Amazon Echo Frames bring Alexa even closer and make it easier to access by putting it right on your face. While the Amazon Echo Frames are cool, they lack the audio quality I'd expect from $250 earbuds, and easy access to Alexa doesn't make up for that.
Xiaomi makes some great gear for budget-minded users, but finding it in the western hemisphere can sometimes be a problem. It looks like that won't be an issue for the company's latest fitness tracker. The Mi Smart Band 6, announced precisely one month ago, now has its own listing on Amazon's US store. It's a few cents shy of $60, and it's shipping out on May 18th.
