Select Apple Watch SE models are also seeing their first discount at Amazon, as well, although that’s focused on the Cellular models from $320.
Apple Watch Series 6 arrives with a host of upgraded internals, including a new blood/oxygen sensor. There’s also the improved always-on display, which is notably brighter than its predecessor.

Sony’s WH-1000XM4 ANC Headphones at $273
Verizon Wireless is currently offering the Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless ANC Headphones for $273. Typically you’d pay $350 for these headphones, with today’s offer marking the very first price cut we’ve seen and amounting to over 20% in savings. Sony’s latest pair of headphones deliver active noise cancellation alongside up to 30 hours of playback on a single charge. There’s a new Bluetooth audio chip this time around that is said to do a better job at drowning out voices and mid-frequency audio while ANC is enabled. Two devices can also be simultaneously paired to the Sony cans, and you’ll find a USB-C charging port to round out the notable features.

Down from its usual $260 going rate, today’s offer saves you 20%, comes within $10 of the all-time low, and is the second-best we’ve seen to date.
Delivering 12TB of storage to your setup with USB 3.0 connectivity, WD’s My Book is ideal for configuring Time Machine to expanding a media server and much more. It has a desktop form-factor that won’t take up too much space on your workstation.
