Discounts don’t usually arrive quickly for the latest Apple tech, but you can enjoy a steep price cut on Apple’s latest iPad Air, which has the M1 processor and a generous 256GB of storage. It normally costs $749 for that tablet configuration, but Walmart and Amazon are selling it for $679. It’s worth noting that this price cut is limited to the space gray colorway at both retailers.

In our recent review of the 2022 iPad Air, the features that make it worth buying include its fast performance, an excellent combo of speakers and display, and its all-day battery life. My colleague Dan Seifert actually recommends spending extra to get this very 256GB model, as the default 64GB just isn’t enough for how much this tablet costs.

The latest iPad Air retains the iPad Pro-esque redesign of the 2020 model but does away with the A14 Bionic processor in favor of Apple’s lightning-fast M1 chip. It also comes in five colors and boasts a 12MP front-facing camera with support for Apple’s Center Stage feature.

If you’re shopping for a fashionable fitness tracker, the Fitbit Luxe is the most stylish fitness tracker on the market and is available at its best price ever. Normally $149.95, Amazon is selling the tracker for $109.95 in black and white, a discount we haven’t seen since the year began, while Walmart has the white colorway for the same price.

If you’re looking for a tracker you can monitor overall activity levels with and wear at the gym or a party, this is the best option for you. The Luxe comes with features like continuous heart rate monitoring and SpO2 sensors while boasting a colorful OLED touchscreen display and slim design that’s perfect for those with petite wrists. However, note that while we think it’s one of the best fitness trackers, it’s not the most accurate when it comes to distance. Plus, unlike other Fitbits — like our top pick, the $229.99 Fitbit Versa 3 — it doesn’t come with contactless payments or access to a digital assistant. Still, it’s an overall good tracker for monitoring the essentials that can help you stay fit for just under $110.

The Fitbit Luxe looks more like a piece of jewelry. It boasts a colorful OLED touchscreen display and tracks a variety of statistics, including your heart rate, sleep, exercise, and more.

As we noted in our review, the OnePlus Buds Pro boast better noise cancellation than the more expensive AirPods Pro. They’re also a great pick if you use your earbuds to make calls, as their voice call performance is superior to most earbuds that cost around $150. Other features we were impressed by include an IP55 rating for dust and water resistance that not even the AirPods Pro offer and a lightweight design that feels just as comfortable as Apple’s popular earbuds.
