The Best Memorial Day Sales on Tech, Gaming, Home, and More

Apple Watch Series 6 for $329 ($70 off) at Amazon, Best Buy: We have seen this deal a few times recently, but it’s still a good one. This is the best fitness tracker for iPhone owners. The Series 6 has several helpful functions, like automatic fall detection, blood oxygen monitoring, and workout tracking. Here’s our full review.

Fitbit Charge 4 Fitness Tracker for $100 ($50 off): This is the best fitness tracker. Despite being affordable, the Charge 4 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) has features you’d typically find in much pricier gadgets, like GPS and sleep monitoring. This price is a match of the best we’ve seen.

Garmin Venu SQ Fitness Tracker for $149 ($51 off): Another bright, attractive fitness tracker, the Garmin Venu SQ (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is a budget-friendly option that doesn’t skimp on features. Things like blood oxygen monitoring are usually limited to more expensive wearables, meaning the value is great. The Venu SQ Music Edition is also on sale, but we don’t like it as much.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 for $220 ($50 off): This smartwatch (7/10, WIRED Review) is a better option for Android users than iOS users, and even better for folks with Galaxy devices. While it’s a little bulky and we don’t particularly love its battery life, it is a perfectly capable fitness tracker and it looks great to boot. Just know that Samsung is switching to a new operating system later this year for its smartwatches

Obvus Solutions Laptop Tower Stand for $70 ($10 off): Out of all the models we’ve tested so far, this is the best laptop stand. It’s lightweight yet sturdy. You can adjust it from a seated position to a standing one pretty easily. If you still don’t have a solid desk for your remote working setup, a stand like this can help you convert another surface into a more ergonomic workspace.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 for $699 ($260 off): The Surface Pro 7 is a great 2-in-1. It’s makes a great laptop alternative with full access to Windows 10, and it makes a decent laptop for watching Netflix in bed. This deal includes the keyboard, though you may want to invest in the Surface Pen too (also on sale). It’s also available for cheaper from Amazon, but the keyboard isn’t included (it’s essential).

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano for $1,500 ($200 off): Use code CLEAR10 at checkout to save. This is one of the best laptops you can buy. It feels like a MacBook, but has Lenovo’s features and keyboard. For specs, we recommend the Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, and 1 TB SSD model (part number 20UN005JUS), but every iteration is on sale with the code.

Nikon D750 DSLR Camera—Body Only—for $1,496 ($200 off): This full-frame camera is a bit older now, but it’s still a fantastic option for anyone looking to get into photography or videography. We reviewed the newer version of it here. It was the same price around this time last year; it’s safe to assume that it’ll drop further in the future if you feel like waiting.

Sphero Specdrums for $40 ($10 off): We really like these colorful STEM toys, which transform surfaces into musical instruments. The tiny rings are adorable, educational, and they’ll entertain kids (and by “kids” we mean anyone over the age of 3). They’re a vast improvement over pots, pans, and a wooden spoon.
