You can snag a first-gen Apple Watch SE for just $149 right now
Apple’s smartwatch lineup has changed pretty substantially since 2020, especially with the introduction of the new Ultra model, but the first-gen Apple Watch SE can still make for a solid entry-level pick if you’ve never owned a smartwatch (or if you want something inexpensive to hand to the kid).
The SE shares some features found on the 2020’s Series 6 — including the same S5 chip and a built-in accelerometer — but lacks an always-on display, blood oxygen monitoring, EKG, and some of the more advanced sensors and features introduced later. models. Still, it supports a wealth of fitness tracking features, notifications, and watchOS 9 (Apple’s latest iteration of watchOS), making it a cheap smartwatch that’s prime for Apple users who don’t need the latest tech.
I’ve long held the belief that 55 inches is the sweet spot when it comes to TVs. However, in recent years, there’s been a trend toward smaller OLED panels — the kind that can moonlight as massive gaming monitors if you’re willing to sacrifice some serious desk space. LG’s C2 OLED is a great case in point, and though its smallest configuration is only receiving a slight discount at the moment, the larger 48-inch version is on sale at Amazon today for an all-time low of $826.99 ($473 off).
Much like LG’s new C3 model, the last-gen C2 is a stunning display that’s just as suitable for gaming as for binging the latest season of Succession. It’s not quite as bright as this year’s model, but it still touts the incredible contrast and inky blacks for which OLED is known. The C2 also includes four HDMI ports that are capable of 120Hz 4K gaming and the whole array of HDMI 2.1 features, two facets that, when combined with the TV’s low input lag and gamer-friendly settings pane, make it a standout for the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

There’s a lot on offer, but one of the better deals to have had is on Bose’s noise-cancelling QuietComfort 45. The foldable headphones — which offer terrific ANC, lengthy battery life, and best-in-class comfort — are available in black for about $229 on eBay with the aforementioned offer code, a discount that lets you pick them up for $100 off the cost if you were to buy them new.
