[Deal Alert] Samsung Gear S3 Frontier refurb down to $184.99 at Best Buy

Samsung's Gear S3 is quite possibly the best smartwatch you can buy right now if you're an Android user. The design is classy, the display is gorgeous, battery life is above average in the category, Samsung Pay is supported, and the rotating bezel makes navigating the menus less cumbersome than tapping on a tiny display. Plus, props go to Samsung for making Tizen a compelling interface on smartwatches. But for $349 straight up, the S3 Frontier is one big investment that equals the price of a very nice midrange smartphone. If you've had your eye on one but couldn't pull the plug, you may want to check this refurb from Best Buy's Geek Squad for $184.99.

It's Sony-day at MWC today with the introduction of the new flagship XZ2 and XZ2 Compact, but if you love the company's phones and can't wait for these devices to be available and you're on a limited budget, now is a good time to take a hard look at the Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra.

[Deal Alert] The DJI Spark with remote controller is $349 at B&H

When Jeff reviewed in super amazing detail the DJI Spark drone, he loved nearly everything about it from its portability to its build quality and resulting images, but two of his main concerns were related to the terrible Android app and the lack of a controller in the box. Back then, it would have cost you $499 to get the Spark alone and then $150 for the controller, which saves you from using the app a lot. Now, a mere 5 months later, both can be had in one neat bundle at B&H for $349 total. That's nearly half the price.

[Deal Alert] Jaybird Freedom 2 down to $82.95 on Amazon

Look, I checked the Amazon rating on these Jaybird Freedom 2 earphones and I know they don't seem to be the best in their category. But many of the reviews and opinions are based on their original $150 MSRP and the expectations that come from that. By comparison, the $82.95 price right now puts them in a different category and they might be worth a look, all things considered.

The Freedom 2 follow Jaybird's signature form factor: two earbuds linked by one wire that sits around your neck. They can be worn regularly or looped around your ear to come in from the upper side.

[Deal Alert] August Smart Lock 2nd gen down to $117 at Amazon and Best Buy, and $99 in-store at Walmart

"A smart lock?! No, I'll never trust the security of my home to anything smart!" That was my thought until I sat down and considered the potential benefits: unlocking remotely for someone you trust (children who get home early from school, or visiting relatives waiting for you while you're stuck in traffic) or in case of emergency (fire, water leak), locking remotely if you forgot to or think you may have forgotten, checking the log of activity and being notified in case of suspicious unlocks, and the mere fact of using your keys less means you're less likely to lose or misplace them.
