The 15 Best Weekend Deals: Phones, Smartwatches, and More

Much of our lives are still happening through a screen. You may as well upgrade said screen to 4K resolution, powered by a new laptop and a 1080p webcam. We’ve found discounts on such gadgets—including a smartwatch to monitor your fitness and a solid-state drive to keep your digital files safe—that can improve your stay-at-home life as we all wait for vaccines to arrive.

  • EXCLUSIVE—Nomad Rugged Case V1 for AirPods BOGO With Code BOGOWIRED: These Horween-leather covers fit the classic AirPods case (not the AirPods Pro). It does work with the wireless charging case if you have it; just know that it covers up the charging LED. It’s nicer looking than the standard plasticky and glossy case, and it’s also available in brown. Add two to your cart and you’ll only pay for one ($10).
  • Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 GPS for $255 ($45 off): WIRED senior associate editor Julian Chokkattu says this is the best smartwatch for Google diehards, with a new, powerful processor that wards off any lag or stutter compared to most Wear OS smartwatches. Its battery lasts two full days on a charge, and it includes sleep tracking. Just be sure you’ve got large wrists—it’s a big watch.
  • Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) for $379 ($320 off): The Series 5 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is officially discontinued from Apple, but it has a few more features over the newer Apple Watch SE, like a better heart sensor, an always-on screen, and an electrocardiogram. Our Best Apple Watch guide has more details.
  • Apple AirPods Pro for $200 ($50 off): Pricey, but good. The Pros (9/10, WIRED Recommends) have some of the best active noise-canceling tech we’ve ever seen in an earbud, plus a transparency mode that lets you pick up ambient noises just as well as if you had nothing in your ears.
  • OnePlus 8 Pro + OnePlus Bud Z for $799 ($200 off): The OnePlus 8 Pro (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is a great Android smartphone, but it’s a little too expensive at its launch price. This deal makes it more stomachable, plus you get OnePlus’ wireless earbuds for free (a $50 value). Just know that this phone’s successor, the OnePlus 9 Pro, is likely right around the corner.
  • Moto G Power (2021) for $230 ($20 off): Motorola’s new Moto G phones won’t knock your socks off, but they’re solid phones for not a lot of money. The G Power is our favorite of the lot, offering decent performance, three-day battery life, and an OK camera system.
  • Samsung Galaxy S21 for $700 ($100 off): Samsung’s latest smartphone is excellent (8/10, WIRED Recommends), with a satisfying triple-camera system, buttery smooth performance, and a fantastic display. The even better Galaxy S21 Ultra is also on sale for $1,000 ($200 off).
  • Roborock S6 Pure Robot Vacuum and Mop for $520 ($80 off): Lidar navigation lets the S6 create and remember maps of your home, even if you have multiple floors, making it easy to designate which rooms need vacuuming or mopping. The water tank holds enough to mop up to 1,610 square feet before needing a refill.
