Google Home Max and Nest Hub are on sale today, plus Ring Video doorbell is 30% off and there are new deals on Assistant-enabled light switches. All that and more in today’s 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Bring Assistant home from just $58

Rakuten is offering a pair of deals on Assistant-enabled smart speakers from $58 today, including Google Home Max at $212. Originally $400, it typically goes for around $250 these days. This offer is $7 less than our previous mention. Google’s Home Max Speaker delivers all of your favorite streaming services like YouTube Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and more. It’s also capable of connecting to devices via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Assistant capabilities deliver smart home control and more. We called it a “really nice fancy speaker” in our hands-on review.

Ring Video Doorbell drops lower than Prime Day

Today only, Daily Steals via Rakuten is offering the Ring Video Doorbell for $68. That’s $32 off the going rate found at retailers like Amazon, beats our last mention by $11, and even undercuts Prime Day pricing by $2. If you’ve got a standard doorbell, today’s discount should make you consider upgrading. Once swapped out, you’ll be able to see who’s at the door, even when away from home. Motion detection capabilities allow you to be alerted whether the doorbell was used or not.

Have Assistant control Wemo’s Smart Light Switch

Amazon currently offers the Belkin Wemo Smart In-Wall Wi-Fi Light Switch for $30. Normally selling for $40 these days, today’s offer saves you 25%, beats our previous mention by $2, and is the best we’ve seen in months. For comparison, Best Buy will still charge you $45.

In-wall light switches are an affordable way to enjoy smart home lighting without replacing every bulb, and Wemo’s option notably sports Alexa and Assistant capabilities. Smartphone control enters the mix too, giving you the ability to set schedules, apply automation, and more.

Take $124 off Fossil’s Sport Wear OS Smartwatch

Amazon offers the Fossil Sport Wear OS Smartwatch with black silicone band for $151. Typically selling for $275, that’s good for a 45% discount and a new Amazon low. This 43mm smartwatch features heart rate tracking and GPS monitoring, all packed into a swim-proof design. You’ll be able to enjoy up to 24 hours of battery life per charge and view text messages as well as other notifications on its touchscreen display. We called it “the best Wear OS device for most people” in our hands-on review.

SanDisk’s 2TB Extreme SSD is perfect for on-the-go storage

Amazon is offering the SanDisk 2TB Extreme Portable External SSD for $250. This is down from its $450 list price these days, around $300 going rate at Amazon, and is a match for its all-time low there. Whether you’re an on-the-go video editor or just someone who wants to bring extra storage along for documents, photos, and movies, this drive does it all. Sporting a USB-C connection, it plugs into Apple’s latest laptop and iPad without a problem. Plus, it sports up to 550MB/s transfer speeds, which makes moving data a breeze. Learn more about this drive in our hands-on review.
