Discounts don’t usually arrive quickly for the latest Apple tech, but you can take advantage of a steep price drop on Apple’s latest iPad Air, which features the M1 processor and a generous 256GB of storage. It normally costs $749 for this tablet configuration, but walmart and Amazon are selling it for $679. It’s worth noting that this price drop is limited to the Space Gray colorway at both retailers.
In our recent iPad Air 2022 review, features worth buying include its speedy performance, great speaker and display combination, and all-day battery life. My colleague Dan Seifert actually recommends spending more to get this 256GB model, as the default 64GB just isn’t enough for the price of this tablet.
If you’re looking for a fashionable fitness tracker, the Fitbit Luxe is the most stylish fitness tracker on the market and is available at its best price. Normally $149.95, Amazon sells the tracker for $109.95 in black and whitea discount that we had not seen since the beginning of the year, while Walmart has the color white for the same price.
If you are looking for a tracker with which you can monitor overall activity levels and wear it to the gym or to a party, this is the best option for you. The Luxe comes with features like continuous heart rate monitoring and SpO2 sensors while boasting a colorful OLED touchscreen and a slim design that’s perfect for those with small wrists. However, do note that while we think this is one of the best fitness trackers, it’s not the most accurate when it comes to distance. Plus, unlike other Fitbits – like our top pick, the $229.99 Fitbit Versa 3 – it doesn’t come with contactless payments or access to a digital assistant. Still, it’s a good overall tracker for monitoring essentials that can help you stay in shape for just under $110.
If you’re looking for a pair of noise-canceling headphones, the OnePlus Buds Pro are one of our favorites and are currently available at an all-time high in 2022. Regularly $149.99, you can now pick up a pair in white or black alongside a wireless charging case for $119.99 from OnePlus.
As we noted in our review, the OnePlus Buds Pro offer better noise cancellation than the more expensive AirPods Pro. They’re also a great choice if you’re using your headphones to make calls, as their voice call performance is superior to most headphones that cost around $150. Other features that impressed us include an IP55 rating for dust and water resistance that even the AirPods Pro don’t offer, and a lightweight design that’s just as comfortable as Apple’s popular headphones.
Apple’s most affordable iPad is even more affordable today. If you prefer a little more storage, Amazon is selling the 256GB model with Wi-Fi for $429, a $50 discount. This is a new all-time low for Amazon also equaled to walmart on Apple’s entry-level iPad, which offers a new A13 Bionic processor that’s much faster than its predecessor. Like some of the more premium models in the range, the iPad’s 12MP front camera also supports Apple’s Center Stage feature, so it will automatically follow you in frame during video calls. Plus, unlike the more expensive iPads, this one still comes with a 3.5mm audio jack so you can connect your headphones. For more details on how the iPad stacks up against the rest of the lineup, you can check out our comparison here.
If the OnePlus Buds Pro true wireless earbuds are too expensive and you don’t need active noise cancellation, Anker’s Soundcore Liberty Air 2 are among the best budget alternatives. They are even more economical today now that you can buy a pair for $42.99 instead of $80 at Woot via Amazonwhich is a historic low.
Compared to others in this price range, we’ve found the Liberty Air 2s to offer the best microphone performance, as they are similar in design to the AirPods. While we found the tap controls can be finicky at times, these headphones also have long battery life and good sound quality.
