Today’s best deals include Apple Watch Series 3 drops to $179, iPod touch goes on sale, and you can save on previous-generation MacBook Pro models. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Apple Watch Series 3 is $179

Apple Watch Series 3 is back in-stock at Amazon from $179, marking one of the best prices we’ve tracked all-time. That’s at least $20 down from the regular going rate and a match of our previous mention. Apple Watch Series 3 still offers great value with notable features for everyday life. That includes a built-in GPS sensor, swimproof design, and more. It’s great for keeping track of notifications from your iPhone during workouts. Apple Watch Series 3 is expected to continue to receive software upgrades over the course of the next few years.

iPod touch sees a rare discount

Today only, Woot is offering Apple’s latest iPod touch 32GB space gray for $165 in refurbished condition. Shipping is free for Prime members, otherwise, a $6 delivery fee applies. Typically fetching $199 for a new model, like you’ll find at Amazon, today’s offer is good for a $34 discount and matches our previous mention for the best we’ve seen.

Apple’s most recent iPod touch comes equipped with a 4-inch Retina display and is powered by an A10 Fusion processor. A front-facing camera offers group FaceTime potential, and it also makes for a great first introduction to iOS for kids or anyone looking to enjoy music, videos, games, and more.

15-inch MacBook Pro from $1,580

Today only, Woot offers Apple’s certified refurbished 2019 15-inch MacBook Pro from $1,580. As a comparison, you would’ve originally paid $2,399 or more for these models. This is a match of our previous mention.

Apple’s 2019 MacBook Pro sports an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB or 512GB internal SSD. Ships with four Thunderbolt 3 ports, Touch Bar, Touch ID, and more. Includes a one-year warranty.

UE WONDERBOOM 2 Speaker hits $70

Best Buy currently offers the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM 2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker for $70. Down from its $100 going rate, as you’ll find at retailers like Amazon, today’s offer is good for a 30% discount and matches our previous mention for the all-time low set only twice before.

Packing 360-degree sound into a compact design, Ultimate Ears’ WONDERBOOM 2 is complemented by IP67 water-resistance. Not only can it float, but the 13-hour battery life ensures you’re always ready to rock out this summer, whether it’s by the pool or really anywhere else. We called it the “best speaker of the year” in our hands-on review. Head below for more.

Lutron Aurora HomeKit Dimmer at $30

Amazon is currently offering the Lutron Aurora Smart Bulb HomeKit Dimmer for $30. Typically selling for $40, today’s offer is good for a 25% discount, marks the very first price cut we’ve seen to date, and is subsequently a new all-time low.

Lutron’s latest smart home accessory converts your typical light switches into HomeKit-enabled ones without having to do a pesky install. The battery-powered dimmer knob fits right onto an existing switch and allows you to control Philips Hue lights and or any other Zigbee accessory. Learn more in our hands-on review.
