A 2020 low discounts Sony’s Xperia 1

Amazon is currently offering the unlocked Sony Xperia 1 Android Smartphone for $798. Down from its $950 going rate, today’s offer saves you $152, marks the first price drop we’ve seen this year, and is the second-best we’ve seen to date. 

Standing out from other Android devices on the market, Sony’s Xperia 1 comes equipped with a 6.5-inch 4K OLED display. Around back there’s a triple-lens camera system complemented by Eye autofocus and 10fps burst shooting. There are also two built-in SIM card slots, Dolby Atmos audio, IP65 water-resistance, and 128GB of onboard storage.

Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch drops to $140

Amazon currently offers the Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch for $140. Saving you 30% from its $200 going rate, today’s offer comes within $1 of our previous mention and is the third-best price we’ve seen to date.

Standout features that have made their way to the Steel HR include heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, 25-days of battery life, and water resistance up to 50-meters. Plus, as a fitness-focused smartwatch, you’ll find smart notifications plus the usual roster of health-related features alongside more noteworthy inclusions like V02 max estimation.

SanDisk 500GB USB-C Portable SSD at $82

Amazon offers the SanDisk 500GB Extreme Portable USB-C SSD for $82. You’ll also find this offer over at B&H. Today’s deal is down from the up to $120 price tag and beats Best Buy’s 1-day sale by $8. It’s the best we’ve seen at Amazon in 9-months.

Notable features here include USB-C connectivity delivering up to 550MB/s transfer speeds and a rugged design that’s water-resistant and compact. Includes a 3-year warranty with purchase. An ideal partner for the latest MacBooks, iMacs, iPad Pro, and Chromebooks.

HP’s latest 14-inch Chromebook drops to $229

BuyDig is currently offering the HP Chromebook 14a for $229. Down from its $290 going rate, today’s offer is good for a 21% discount, marks one of the first price cuts we’ve seen, and is a new all-time low.

Centered around a 14-inch display, this Chromebook packs 4GB of RAM as well as 32GB of onboard SSD storage. It boasts up to 13-hours of battery life per charge and features two built-in USB-C ports, a B&O sound system, and more. There’s also a USB 3.0 port for connecting legacy devices, as well. Having just been released, reviews are still coming in.

JBL Link View is $100

Verizon Wireless is offering the JBL Link View Assistant-enabled Smart Display for $100. This is down from its $300 going rate at Best Buy and matches our last mention.

The JBL Link View packs Google Assistant for a fantastic smart home experience. The 8-inch display can showcase recipes, smart home control, music, YouTube, and more. I have the smaller Nest Home Hub in the kitchen and my wife loves using it to set timers for cooking, ask it questions for when things expire, and other general inquiries.
