Technically, Amazon Prime Day ended a couple of days ago, but it looks like Amazon and other retailers didn’t get the note. Some of the best deals are still doing the rounds, including one on the Beats Studio Buds Plus that’s available to both Prime and non-Prime members. Right now, shop the fantastic wireless earphones at Amazon, Best Buyand Aim for just $150 ($20 off).
In addition to a unique translucent option, the Studio Buds Plus offer better sound and noise cancellation than its predecessor, the Beats Studio Buds. They also offer longer battery life and are designed to be platform agnostic so you can use Android features like Fast Pair. Of course, as Beats is an Apple-owned company, they can also take advantage of iOS features, making them a great pair of headphones if you’re someone who owns both Android and Apple devices. Just keep in mind that Android support comes at the expense of some iOS capabilities, like custom spatial audio.
Smartwatches like the Apple Watch Series 8 may be popular, but they’re also overkill if all you really need is a fitness tracker that can keep track of the basics. Instead, a more appropriate fitness tracker might be something like the fitbit inspire 3which is available for $79.95 ($20 off) on Amazon, walmart, Best Buyand Aim.
Despite its low price, the entry-level wearable offers some impressive perks, including a color OLED screen. Along with the standard set of health and fitness features, it also comes with advanced stress management and sleep tracking capabilities. Combine that with 10 days of battery life, and it’s easy to see why this is our favorite budget Fitbit. It offers everything you could need in a basic tracker, as long as it doesn’t require bells and whistles like built-in GPS and support for digital assistants like Alexa.
If you need a much more capable webcam than what your laptop offers, the Insta360 Link is currently available for $254.99 ($45 off) at B&H Photo and direct from Insta360. The Link stands out from many of its rivals thanks to the fact that it sits on a three-axis gimbal, allowing it to move freely. That means you’ll be able to stay centered in the frame even as you walk across the room to, for example, display your work while streaming live. You can also capture 4K resolution at 60 fps, providing excellent image and video quality once you select the versatile webcam desktop software.
If you’re looking for a portable iPad, you can’t go wrong by buying the smallest iPad Apple currently makes: the iPad Mini 2021. And right now, the Wi-Fi-enabled version of the sixth-generation Mini is for sale at Walmart with 64GB of storage in pink for $399.99 ($89 off).
The redesigned iPad Mini is one of the best tablets you can buy for reading thanks to its 8.3-inch screen, which is much easier to hold than a 10-inch iPad screen. Also, unlike the latest basic iPad, it works with the second-generation Apple Pencil. Other convenient features include a USB-C port for fast charging and a speedy A15 Bionic chip.
