All of today’s best deals are headlined by up to $133 off Apple Watch Series 6 styles from $329. That’s alongside official Apple Watch bands from $39 and Philips Hue smart home lighting starting at $13. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Apple Watch Series 6 styles now up to $100 off
Amazon is currently discounting a selection of Apple Watch Series 6 models, taking as much as $100 off a variety of styles. With prices starting at $329, these are some of the best discounts of the year and in many cases marking the lowest we’ve seen since the Black Friday holiday season. The original $133 discount has since sold out. Ranging from entry-level models with sport bands to higher-end stainless steel and cellular offerings, there are quite a few different options for upgrading to Apple’s latest wearable.
Apple Watch Series 6 arrives with the suite of fitness tracking features you’ll have come to expect from previous generations, but with the addition of a new blood/oxygen sensor and an even brighter always-on display. That’s alongside Apple’s new U1 chip and support for faster charging so it spends less time off your wrist. Plus, you’ll also benefit from cellular connectivity on select models.

Save on official Apple Watch bands from $39
Amazon is currently discounting a selection of official Apple Watch bands headlined by its Leather Link style at $84 in a variety of colors. Shipping is free across the board. Normally fetching $99, today’s offer amounts to one of the very first discounts we’ve seen, is the lowest of the year, and matches the all-time low.
Comprised of handcrafted Roux Granada leather made in France, this is certainly one of the more premium bands in Apple’s official stable. Alongside its stylish appearance, the Leather Link band also features a magnetic design that locks in place without having to fuss with a clasp.
Philips Hue smart home lighting on sale from $13
Woot is discounting a selection of Philips Hue starter kits, bulbs, and accessories starting at $13. Headlining is the Philips Hue Go Lamp at $65 in certified refurbished condition. Down from its usual $80 going rate, today’s offer amounts to $15 in savings and is the second-best price of the year.
With a battery-powered design, Hue Go expands your smart home setup with multicolor lighting and all of the other perks you’d expect, including Bluetooth support. Those include Siri, Alexa, and Assistant voice control alongside home theater integration and more. I personally have a few of these spread out over my setup and love how they add a pop of color to bookshelves and the like. You can also learn more in our hands-on review.
Anker’s 65W PowerPort Atom III Slim Wall Charger hits $39
After seeing its all-new PowerConf 1080p Webcam go on sale earlier in the week, we’re now tracking a series of Anker iPhone and Android essentials on sale from $13 courtesy of its official Amazon storefront. Our top pick this time around highlights the Anker 65W PowerPort Atom III Slim Wall Charger at $39. Normally fetching $46, today’s offer amounts to 15% in savings and matches our previous mention for the best price this year.
Anker’s PowerPort Atom III can dish out 65W of power to connected devices over three of its 2.4A USB-A ports as well as a 45W USB-C PD output. Its GaN technology allows this charger to sport a compact design while still being able to top off your MacBook, iPhone, and other gear all at once. You can get a closer look in our hands-on review.
August’s latest HomeKit Smart Lock is $192 (Save 23%)
Amazon is currently offering the August 4th-Generation Wi-Fi Smart Lock for $192. Typically fetching $250, today’s offer amounts to 23% in savings, beats our previous mention by $4, and marks one of the best prices to date. Delivering HomeKit, Alexa, and Assistant control, August’s latest smart lock enters with a 45% smaller design compared to its previous offerings. Wi-Fi connectivity means you won’t need an additional hub, and other notable features bring auto-unlocking functionality as well as the ability to share virtual keys.
