Best Weekend Deals: Pixel 6 Pro, Beats earbuds, Fitbit Trackers, and more

Ars Technica

It’s the weekend, which means it’s another Dealmaster time. Our latest roundup of the best tech deals from around the web is topped by a number of the discounts we saw during the Amazon Prime Day sale that are still available.

Google’s Pixel 6 Pro, for one, is still under $699. That’s $200 MSRP from Google and matches the lowest price we’ve tracked for what we consider to be the best Android phone you can buy right now. More budget-conscious buyers should note that the Pixel 6a is very close and will offer the same clean software and fast Google Tensor SoC as its siblings for $449. For those who want more power, though, the 6 Pro will still offer a larger screen (6.7 inches, instead of the 6a’s 6.1 inches), a higher refresh rate (120 Hz instead of 60 Hz), and more RAM A larger (12GB instead of 6GB), and a larger battery (5000mAh instead of 4,410mAh), among other upgrades. Unfortunately, the deal that lowered the Pixel 6 benchmark to $499 earlier this week is no longer available.

On top of that, other notable features include Beats Fit Pro reduced to $160; This is still the lowest price yet for a set of true wireless earbuds that we’d recommend for those who want a more gym-friendly experience with Apple’s AirPods Pro. The Anker Soundcore Motion+, a rugged, waterproof Bluetooth speaker, is a good value at its current $80 price tag. And the Jaipuris a fast and accessible card-based game that we feature in our list of the best two-player board games, and it’s still the lowest price we’ve seen this year.

There are several Prime Day deals left on the devices we recommend below, with lower-than-usual pricing on Google’s Chromecast with Google TV, Samsung’s Evo Select microSD card, and HyperX’s Cloud Alpha gaming headset, among others. We also have some new discounts on Fitbit’s Inspire 2 (which will be a budget pick in our upcoming guide to the best fitness trackers), Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro, and several video games. You can find the full list of curated deals below.
