Today’s 9to5Toys Lunch Break delivers notable deals on MacBooks, plus you can save on a wide range of Twelve South accessories, and Samsung’s latest portable SSDs are on sale. Hit the jump for all that and more.
New Best Buy Apple Shopping event
The latest MacBook Air from Apple sports a 13-inch Retina display, Touch ID, a dual-core 8th generation Intel i5 processor and 128GB of storage. Two Thunderbolt 3 ports and up to 12 hours of battery life round out the list of notable features.
Twelve South upgrades your WFH setup
Twelve South has a handful of discounts running at Amazon today for back to school season. Headlining is the BookArc for MacBook at $51. As a comparison, it typically goes for $60 and this is the best price we’ve tracked on the “new version” that was announced a few months back. The Twelve South BookArc delivers a stylish home for your MacBook in color-matched shades. It elevates your MacBook and helps keep it safe when not in-use or docked to an external monitor. This model is compatible with most MacBook models. Not to mention, integrated cable management keeps things nice and tidy.
Save up to $50 on Samsung’s latest T7 Touch Portable SSDs
Amazon is currently offering the Samsung T7 Touch Portable 500GB Solid-State Drive for $110. Typically fetching $130, today’s offer matches our previous mention for the all-time low tracked only once before and saves you 15%. As one of Samsung’s latest storage offerings, its new T7 Touch SSD touts a portable form factor that delivers 1,050MB/s transfer speeds over its USB-C connectivity. Everything is housed within a shock-resistant case that can withstand drops of up to 6 feet and a built-in finger print sensor brings added security features into the mix.
Grab four Apple Watch sport bands for $9
JuTu via Amazon offers a 4-pack of Sport Apple Watch Bands in various colors and sizes for $9. Regularly up to $15, today’s deal matches our previous mention. For further comparison, we’ve seen similar styles in 3-packs for $8 more recently. These sport bands are made from “soft silicone” and feature a comparable design to Apple’s official options, for a fraction of the price. It’s a great way to add some new color to the mix this fall sans the pricier fees attached to Apple’s official bands.
Fitbit’s new Sense Smartwatch at $306
Amazon is currently offering the new Fitbit Sense Advanced Smartwatch for $306. Slated to launch with a $330 price tag on September 25, today’s discount marks the first price cut since it was announced at the end of August and is subsequently a new all-time low. As Fitbit’s latest addition to its roster of fitness trackers, the new Sense Smartwatch delivers up to 6-day battery life alongside built-in GPS, always-on AMOLED display, and NFC. There’s also the introduction of ECG capabilities, as well as other new fitness tracking features like stress, skin temperature, and mindfulness to go with the usual batch of exercise stats and the like.
