I’m looking down at my aging Apple Watch 6 and noticing that it’s April 1st, so I had to double-check Amazon’s listing for the Apple Watch Series 9 just to make sure the price wasn’t a joke.The 41mm / GPS model with the midnight case and Sport Loop band is on sale at Amazon for $299.99 ($100 off) — only $30 more than its lowest price to date. Unfortunately, no other colors are currently matching that price as of writing.

The Apple Watch Series 9 is our top choice for iPhone users who need a fitness tracker. It has all the sensors needed to track essential fitness metrics and other measures of well-being, including sleep. (Presumably, this model lacks the SpO2 oxygen sensor that Apple was forced to remove due to patent disputes.)

While it wasn’t a major step up from the previous model, Apple’s latest smartwatch introduces new capabilities and hardware, including an S9 SiP processor that supports on-device Siri commands and ultra wideband radios for precision Find My support, allowing you to locate your iPhone in addition to AirTags. It also supports Apple’s new double tap gesture, which lets you respond to certain prompts and events without using your other hand.

The Apple Watch Series 9 features a brand-new S9 processor that enables offline Siri use, brighter displays, and the double tap gesture. It also has the second-gen ultra wideband chip for Precision Finding if you have an iPhone 15.

While we love the improvements made to Sennheiser’s newest flagship earbuds (read our Momentum True Wireless 4 review), they’re still a little too expensive for some tastes at $299.95. Thankfully, there’s a great deal available on the last-gen model if you need a new pair of wireless earbuds and are interested in hearing the brand’s lauded sound signature. Now until April 10th (or while supplies last), Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 3 are down to $119.99 in white at Woot, matching their all-time low.

We’ve found that the Momentum True Wireless 3 still hold up well when it comes to sheer audio quality, allowing them to hang with the top models from Bose, Sony, and Apple. They feature solid active noise cancellation with a transparency mode that’s not quite as convincing as competitors, but it comes close. You’ll also get a wireless charging case that adds another 21 hours of battery life to the earbuds’ seven-hour runtime.

When testing them earlier in their lifespan, the Momentum True Wireless 3 suffered from minor bugs and connectivity issues. We’re not sure the company has been able to solve them all with the various firmware updates it’s issued since, but they may be worth a try at this price, especially since they now offer multipoint support and come with a two-year warranty.

The Momentum True Wireless 3 brought a more refined design, better sound, and support for wireless charging to Sennheiser’s flagship earbuds. There is a newer pair available, but the sound quality of the last-gen model still holds up with the best.

  • Now until April 14th, Woot is running a sale on 4K Samsung TVs, including both QLED and OLED models. Samsung’s latest Frame TV is on sale in the 65- and 75-inch configuration for $1,447.99 ($552 off) and $2,147.99 ($852 off), respectively. You can also find savings on the OLED-bearing S95C, with the 65-inch model now $1,747.99 (more than $1,500 off) and the 75-inch model down to 2,747.99 ($1,750 off). Your purchase includes Samsung’s one-year limited warranty.
  • Walmart is offering the blue Fujifilm Instax Mini 12 bundled with film, a photo album, a magnetic photo holder, and an idea book for $62.19 (about $28 off). To put the value into perspective, the film usually costs around $10 per 10 sheets, while the camera itself retails for around $80 when it isn’t on sale. It’s our favorite instant camera overall thanks to its ease of use, resilient build, and ability to produce 2 x 3-inch prints with true-to-life color.
  • Ugreen’s 30W USB-C GaN charger is on sale at Amazon starting at $11.58 (about $8 off), matching its best price to date. The block-shaped, travel-friendly charger features one USB-C port and a collapsible AC plug. It should engage fast-charging capabilities in most smartphones without fail.
  • Prime members can save 50 percent on Anker’s PowerExpand 6-in-1 USB-C hub, which is going for $19.99 ($20 off) at Amazon. If you’re not a Prime member, it’s just $5 more. With it, you can add two extra USB-A ports, a 4K HDMI port, an SD card reader, and a 3.5mm headphone jack to any device that has a USB-C port (including your laptop or iPad). There’s also a 100W USB-C Power Delivery port with 85W passthrough charging.
