Instead of waiting until this Friday, we’re seeing pretty much every major retailer jump in on the holiday shopping fun earlier than normal. Part of this likely has to do with decisions to not open on Thanksgiving, along with trying to avoid massive crowds while still bringing you the best deals. Best Buy is one of these retailers participating in the early Black Friday fun, and we’ve rounded up some of our favorite deals so far.
Deals for the home
Released earlier this year, the Lenovo Smart Clock 2 sees a slight redesign, along with the addition of a wireless charging dock. The clock itself is not all that different from the original iteration, but now you can enjoy a Google Assistant-powered smart speaker combined with a wireless charger. Normally priced at $69, Best Buy has knocked the price down to just $49 for Black Friday.
Getting into the world of smart home lights can be expensive, and frankly, rather boring. But thanks to Nanoleaf Shapes, you can ditch the boring smart lights, and create something truly unique. This expansion pack includes 10 total triangles that can be connected together in various ways while being controlled from your smartphone or smart speakers.
Samsung’s AU8000 Smart TV was updated earlier this year, and comes in six different sizes starting at 43-inches and going up to 85-inches. The TV itself is powered by Samsung’s Crystal Processor 4K, ensuring that those older TV shows and movies still look crystal clear even if they haven’t been remastered.
The Samsung Q80A is as close as it gets to being the perfect TV, and for Black Friday you can save a whopping $1,100 on this beast. Sporting a QLED panel and 3D sound, the Q80A is great for any scenario from being the centerpiece of your home theater system, or allowing you to enjoy your favorite games on next-gen consoles.
VIZIO is well-known for some of the best price-to-performance television sets, and the P-Series is no exception. The P-Series includes a dedicated PRO Gaming Engine, making it great for next-gen consoles, along with offering 4K playback and support for up to 120fps thanks to HDMI 2.1. It even supports AMD’s FreeSync Premium for low latency and variable refresh rates.
You might be surprised, but Black Friday is one of the best times to pick up a new vacuum for the home. The Dyson Cyclone V10 can handle everything that you throw at it, running for 60 minutes on a single charge and including three different cleaning modes. There’s even a mini motorized tool to help pick up dirt and pet hair from your carpets.
Despite running on Wear OS 2.0, the Fossil Gen 5e is one of the sleekest and most reliable smartwatches out there. It offers up to 24 hours on a single charge, while being able to be juiced up to 80% in just 50 minutes. The Always-On Display ensures that you’ll never wonder what time it is, and you can even customize the AOD to show exactly what you want.
You might not recognize the SUUNTO branding, but this smartwatch is fantastic for workout enthusiasts or just those who want a solid Wear OS smartwatch. The SUUNTO 7 can track up to 15 different activities, while being waterproof up to 164-feet of water. Plus, the 1.39-inch AMOLED display reaches peak brightness levels of up to 1000 nits, so you won’t have to strain to see the screen even in direct sunlight.
If you’re serious about workouts and health tracking, then you’ll definitely want to consider this deal on the fēnix 6S Pro from Garmin. The smartwatch is available in two different color options while sporting a stainless steel frame, and plenty of buttons to help you start and stop your workouts or just navigate through the watch’s interface with ease.
Even more great deals
Now that the Surface Pro 7 has been succeeded, we’re seeing some incredible deals on Microsoft’s last-generation Surface Pro. Currently, the Surface Pro 7 powered by Intel’s Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM can be had for $400 off. You can use the money you saved to grab the detachable keyboard to complete the ensemble.
Sometimes it’s just nice to sit down and put some LEGOs together. This is especially true if you’re a big Star Wars fan, and now, you can get Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Fighter for $10 off. The kit is comprised of 474 pieces, while including Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, General Dodonna, and R2-D2 minifigures.
If you’re in the market for some new workout headphones, then the Jabra Elite Active 75t might just be the perfect choice. These truly wireless earbuds include Active Noise Cancellation, sound personalization via the Sound+ app, and sport an IP57 waiting. Plus, Jabra offers an additional two-year warranty against dust and sweat, so you won’t have to worry about coming out of pocket if something goes wrong.
Sony’s WH-1000XM4 headphones are largely considered to be the best over-ear headphones out there. But, they are a bit too expensive for many, which is where the WH-XB910N headphones come in. These also offer noise cancelation, along with up to 30-hours of battery life on a single charge. And if you need some extra juice, a 10-minute quick charge will give you an extra 4.5 hours of listening time.
No matter what kind of computer you are using, it’s always good to have an external hard drive. But instead of getting one of the old-fashioned desktop hard drives, you can get the Samsung T7 Portable SSD and have extra storage with you, wherever you go. Plus, since this uses an SSD over a standard spinning drive, you’ll enjoy much faster read and write speeds.
