Cyber Monday is the new Black Friday. As great as the day after Thanksgiving was this year for finding deals, this Cyber Monday is proving to be even better.
Here’s the top five deals on electronics. Note: We will be updating this post as the day progresses. Be sure to check back later for new, better deals.
1. Garmin vivosmart Activity Tracker – 53% Off
While the Apple Watch has gotten more powerful, more expensive, and more complex, Garmin has simplified and beautified their fitness trackers. That said, while it may not pack all of the features of Apple’s offerings, it does everything most people will need it to and then some. Garmin’s vivosmart is compatible with Android, iPhone, and Windows based phones and allows you to control your music, monitor your heart rate and steps, and displays all of your notifications. Plus, one can even connect it to control an action camera (the Virb, sold separately).
Users love it for its long battery life (five days), remote control function, and its sunlight-readable display. It’s like an Apple Watch that’s extremely low maintenance and way cheaper. At half price, it’s a steal.
2. Nikon D3400 + 70-300mm f4.5-6.3G + 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G – 50% Off
This camera is already the single best deal on the DSLR market in terms of picture quality per price. Today, it’s on sale with two very versatile lenses meaning this is by far and away, the best pick for beginner and amateur photographers that we’ve seen in some time.
The D3400 objectively has better picture quality than many cameras which are considerably more expensive. According to DXOmark, it’s about 40th in terms of its sensor quality, and if you look at the cameras ranking above it, almost all of them cost over $1000. This camera offers great optics, a decently big sensor size (DX, or APS-C) and best of all, it has dynamic range that absolutely pops.
If you’re ready to take your photos to the next level, the RAW photos on this camera stack up to cameras twice and three times its cost. With these lenses, you’ll be ready to go regarding virtually any photography task out there. The only look one will be missing is shallow depth of field, though one could pick up the exquisite Nikkor 50mm f1.8, 20 percent off today for $176.95.
3. Amazon Fire HD 8 – 38% Off
Amazon’s hardware is some of the cheapest around already. At this rate, it’s simply insane. The Fire HD8 boasts a quad core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and Dolby Audio. It’s more durable than an iPad and also unlike Cupertino’s fancy tablet, it has expandable memory (one could throw in the Sandisk card on the bottom of this list, for instance, and have 70GB of storage!). The Fires are praised as some of the best media consumption tablets on the market. Users love this model for its long battery life, quick and easy setup, and Alexa integration. At this price, it’s hard to think of any electronic that can provide this much value.
4. Arlo Pro Security System – 30% Off
For those who want a truly robust home security system, this Arlo Pro set boasts max watchfulness. It includes five cameras, each with two way audio. Another great perk here is that this system includes storage of up to seven days of cloud recordings. This means you can access up to a week of footage, for free, for the duration of owning the set. The cameras are weatherproof and can withstand extreme temperatures. Users love them for their reliability, crystal clear picture, and long lasting batteries (3-6 months).
5. Sandisk Extreme 64GB – 24% Off
Sandisk has slashed price across many products (check out all of their deals on Amazon), but this 64GB card offers one of the most practical discounts. At this rate, one can practically use their SD card as an external hard drive! Sandisk cards are water and weatherproof and offer zippy read/write speeds. They’re great for use in cameras of all kinds or as storage for say an Android voice. They don’t get much cheaper than this, especially not dollars per gigabytes!
6. Yeti USB Microphone – 41% Off
From legendary mic manufacturer Blue comes this wonderful hybrid microphone and audio interface. This Yeti USB mic plugs straight into one’s PC and offers some of the most pristine, warm aaudio available on the market. It has live-monitoring so one can listen to themselves with zero-latency. It’s great for vocals, podcasts, and screencasts. Users love it for its amazing recording range, sensitivity, and overall sound.
7. Excelvan BM-800 Condenser Mic – 82% Off
For those who have a mixer or audio interface that can provide phantom power and pre-amplification, this deal is almost unfathomably cheap. A condenser mic at this price is just outrageous. Note that this is a daily deal, so it will go extremely fast. This is a perfect mic for beginners and has outstanding clarity.
