Apple Watch Series 5 hits new lows

Amazon is now taking up to $100 off Apple Watch Series 5 GPS + Cellular models. Notably, this brings the 40mm Aluminum configuration down to $399, which is 25% off and a new Amazon all-time low. Amazon also has the 44mm GPS at $329. Meanwhile, Walmart is taking the same amount off GPS models with deals from $299. The latest from Apple delivers a new always-on Retina display, 30% larger screen than Series 3, and a swimproof design. Improved features like heart rate tracking, ECG, and a new compass are a few of the other notable upgrades here. Of course, you’ll still get fitness tracking and the usual suite of notifications.

Make sure to put your savings toward good use and pick up an extra Apple Watch band. There are plenty of options out there that you can find in our roundup starting at $5. Check out all of our top picks right here.

Sonos Playbar and Sub both get $150 discounts

Amazon currently offers the G-Technology 1TB G-DRIVE ev RaW Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive for $50. Typically fetching $90, today’s offer is good for a 45% discount, is $30 under the previous price cut, and marks a new Amazon all-time low. For comparison, other rugged drives sell for $70 or so at Amazon. This shock- and vibration-resistant hard drive features up to 136MB/s transfer speeds and the entire package is wrapped in a rubber bumper that adds an extra layer of protection. G-Technology’s drive can withstand up to 1.5-meter drops, as well. Relying on an eSATA connector, the drive includes both USB 3.0 and USB-C cables, meaning it’ll work with your MacBook and more out of the box.

Save on Marshall’s retro Kilburn II Speaker

Typically fetching $300, today’s offer saves you over 26%, and marks the second-best price we’ve seen this year. Marshall’s speaker comes covered in a classic design reminiscent of guitar amps as well as other retro audio gear and packs equally as appealing sound quality.
