There was no shortage of technology offerings available on the internet this week. Apple’s 256GB iPad Air was cut to its lowest price yet, and Google’s mid-range Pixel 4a 5G smartphone fell to $ 450. Nintendo Switch owners can still grab a few accessories like the Ring-shaped adventure and the Switch Pro controller for less, while Bose’s high-end 700 wireless headphones are still $ 80 off. Here are the best tech deals we found this week that you can still get today.
The latest iPad Air in 256 GB is down to $ 680 on Amazon, and it’s currently in stock. That’s $ 70 off its normal price and a record high. We consider the iPad Air to be the best tablet for most people, and its extended capabilities may explain why it often goes out of stock. We gave him a score of 90 for its fast performance, good battery life and support for the second generation Apple Pencil.
Google Pixel 4a 5G
You can still save $ 50 on Google Pixel 4a 5G, which means you will only pay $ 449 for combined. It is one of the our favorite mid-range smartphones in part because you get a number of premium features at a decent price. It has a 6.2-inch 1080 x 2340 OLED display, Snapdragon 765 processor, 6GB of RAM, headphone jack, stellar cameras, and 17.5 hours of battery life to boot. .
August WiFi Smart Lock
The 4th generation WiFi smart lock August is down to $ 184 at Wellbots, which is near an all-time high. Although it is reduced to $ 199, you can redeem the code ENGADGET15 at checkout for an additional $ 15 discount. We gave the lock a score of 80 for its minimalist design, ease of installation and compatibility with multiple virtual assistants.
Nintendo Ring-shaped adventure
The Ring-shaped adventure pack is back in stock and $ 10 off, bringing it down to just under $ 70. This is a great accessory to get for your Nintendo Switch if you fancy a different kind of gaming experience and want a fun way to practice indoors. Be warned, however, you may be sweating faster than you think.
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is $ 10 on Amazon, which brings it down to $ 59. Not only is this accessory often out of stock, but it rarely enjoys significant discounts. We consider it to be one of the our favorite Nintendo Switch controllers because it’s much more flexible than standard Joy-Cons, not to mention easier to hold for long periods of time.
Bose 700 wireless headphones
The solid Bose 700 The ANC Wireless Earphones in Arctic White dropped to $ 299 on Amazon, which is $ 80 off their regular price. These have won a score of 90 from us for their excellent ANC, good sound quality, comfortable design and clear microphones. And since they start out more expensive than the competition, we recommend that you wait for a sale like this to buy them.
Lenovo Chromebook Duet
Those who need a Chrome OS device can grab the Lenovo Chromebook Duet 2-in-1 for $ 231 at Amazon, or about $ 48 off its regular price. While on the small side it is a Surprisingly capable Chromebook with a responsive screen, good performance, decent battery life and an included keyboard cover.
New technological offers
If you need a new phone case or screen protector, last day to get 20% off everything on the Otterbox website. You can’t go wrong with Otterbox if you want the best protection for your smartphone (or almost any mobile device for that matter). We particularly like the company Line of symmetry because it does a good job of balancing durability with an attractive design.
Vantrue N2 Pro Dash Camera
Vantrue N2 Pro Dash Camera is down to $ 125 on Amazon and you can get the sale price by cutting the $ 10 coupon on the page and using the code NZGMIKZ2 at the register. Dash cameras aren’t just for people driving for ridesharing services – they can capture important information in the event of an accident. The N2 Pro has a front camera capable of recording up to 1440p video plus a rear camera that records you while you are driving. It also has infrared night vision, emergency video backup using G-sensor detection and loop recording.
Korg Volca Nubass vacuum tube synth
Korg Volca Synth which employs tiny Nutubes fell to $ 150 at Musician’s Friend, which is $ 50 less than its regular price. There is a system of two vacuum tubes in this analog synth: one for the sawtooth or square wave of the oscillator and one for the driver of the sub-oscillator. It also has a 16-step sequencer with keyboard-shaped buttons and a chain function that lets you loop sequences for layered sounds.
