19 Best Tech Deals on Cheap Earbuds, Apple Watches, and More

This week, Fitbit released its new, lower-priced offerings, the Inspire HR and the Versa Lite. Senior writer Lauren Goode posited that they are intended to undercut the Apple Watch. But if you’re still lusting after Apple’s fitness-focused wearable, we found a great deal on the Apple Watch Series 3 that almost puts it within the same price range (almost).

This week, we also have a fantastic, limited-time offer: $5 for a 1-year WIRED subscription. The $5 gives you unlimited, ad-free access to articles on Wired.com and a year of monthly print issues (if desired). Subscribing helps support the great reporting the teams here put out every day. That WIRED deal is, of course, in addition to the many other deals below on laptops, Legos, and more.

The Apple Watch Series 3 Is $80 Off From Amazon

Sure, we love the Apple Watch Series 4. But if you don’t need to monitor your heart’s electrical activity, the Series 3 is still a fantastic, fitness-focused wearable. It’s waterproof for swimmers and has a Life Alert if your HR goes bonkers. Right now, it’s $80 off in a variety of colors and sizes from Amazon. (Best Buy also has the deal.)
