This week brought more and more gadget deals as Labor Day weekend inched closer. Many of this week’s deals are still available right now, including Amazon’s discount on the first- and second-generation Echo Show 5 smart displays and a $20 discount on Google’s Nest Audio speaker. Plus, a bunch of new sales are running now through the holiday, including those on Dyson vacuums, OLED smart TVs, wireless earbuds and more. Here are the best Labor Day tech sales we could find.
MacBook Air M1
Apple’s MacBook Air M1 is back down to an all-time low of $850 thanks to an automatically applied coupon. It earned a score of 94 from us for its stellar performance, attractive, fanless design and its comfortable keyboard and trackpad.
Apple Watch Series 6 Product Red Edition
The 40mm Series 6 Product Red Edition is down to $249, which is a record low. When the Apple Watch falls to this low of a price, it tends to go in and out of stock often (especially on Amazon), so we recommend grabbing it quickly if you’re set on buying one. While the next-gen Apple Watch could debut this month, the Series 6 is the best model you can get right now and we gave it a score of 89 for its solid performance, improved battery life, and useful hand-washing timer feature.
Apple’s AirPods Pro is down to $190 right now, or $60 off their normal price. These are the best sounding earbuds you can get from Apple, and we gave them a score of 87 for their better, more secure fit, IPX4 water resistance, and solid audio quality.
Mac Mini M1
Apple’s Mac Mini M1 returned to its all-time-low price of $600 this week thanks to a sale and an automatically applied coupon. You’re getting all of the performance boosts provided by the M1 chipset in a compact desktop package. This is a good machine to get if you have an older desktop that needs replacing, but you don’t want to spend a ton of money.
Amazon’s updated Echo Buds are on sale for $90, or $30 off their normal price. You could pick up the model with a wireless charging case instead and you’d only spend $105. Amazon improved these true wireless earbuds in nearly every way — we gave them a score of 80 for their better sound quality, ANC, and small, comfortable design.
Samsung T7 Touch SSD (1TB)
Samsung’s T7 Touch portable SSD in 1TB is down to $170, or $10 off its normal price. It has dropped to $160 in the past, but this is the best price we’ve seen in a number of months. In addition to read speeds up to 1,050 MB/s and write speeds up to 1,000 MB/s, this tiny SSD has a shock-resistant body and a built-in fingerprint reader for an extra layer of security.
Optoma CinemaX P2
Optoma’s CinemaX P2 ultra-short throw projector is $300 off this weekend, bringing it down to a record low of $3,000. This made it onto our list of best projectors because it improves on the P1 while costing less. It can reach up to 3,000 lumens of brightness and it has an improved contrast ration and 80 percent DCI-P3 coverage. You’ll get close to a 4K image with this machine, and it looks pretty nice too, so you can leave it out in your living room without drawing too much attention.
Roborock S6 Labor Day sale
Roborock’s S6 robot vacuum is down to a record low of $380 thanks to a $102 discount along with a clippable coupon for an extra $168 off. In addition to 2000Pa of suction, this vacuum supports multi-floor mapping, integrated mopping and app and voice control.
Vantrue N4 3-channel dash cam
Vantrue’s 3-channel dash cam is down to $210 when you clip the on-page coupon and use the code DVVZGJWE at checkout. This is a high-end dash cam that includes a dual camera that records the road ahead as well as the interior of the car, and a separate rear camera for recording what’s happening behind you. While that much coverage might be overkill for most, it ensures you’ll capture footage at all angles if you’re ever in an accident.
