Google Home Max is $224

Verizon Wireless is currently offering the Google Home Max in Chalk or Charcoal for $224. Typically selling for $299, like you’ll find direct from Google as well as Best Buy, today’s offer saves you 25%, the lowest we’ve seen since December, and is one of the best discounts overall.

Google’s hi-fi Assistant speaker looks to take on HomePod and other high-end entries in the space with a premium internal speaker array. One highlight is Google’s Smart Sound feature, which uses machine learning to automatically adjust equalizer settings based on a room’s acoustics. Plus, you’ll enjoy access to everything you already love about the Assistant including smart home control and more.

Save on Assistant-enabled smart home tech

Home Depot offers the Honeywell 7-day T5 Smart Programmable Thermostat at $77. That’s down from the usual up to $120 price tag and $15 less than the Amazon all-time low price. Honeywell’s Assistant-enabled smart thermostat delivers 7-day flexible scheduling and geofence features to help you save money and energy. This model sports a slim design and “easy to read” e-ink interface.

Misfit’s Vapor 2 delivers Wear OS for just $70

Misfit is currently offering its Vapor 2 46mm Wear OS Smartwatch with Jet Black sport band for $70. Having originally sold $250, it’s more recently been selling for $150 or so. Today’s offer saves you 55%, is $35 under our previous mention and a new all-time low.

Delivering Wear OS with a round 1.39-inch OLED display, Vapor 2 sports a matte-finished aluminum alloy casing. Other notable features here include heart rate monitoring, customizable watch faces, and built-in GPS for tracking runs without having to bring your phone. It’s waterproof up to 50-meters and is said to offer all-day battery. Check out our launch coverage for additional details.

Save $220 on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S4 256GB

Amazon offers the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 10.5-inch 256GB Tablet with S Pen for $529. Typically selling for $750, today’s offer is good for a 30% discount, beats our previous mention by $21, and marks a new all-time low. With a 10.5-inch sAMOLED screen, three built-in speakers, expandable microSD card storage, and other features, Samsung’s tablet is as notable as they come in the Android world at this price point.

Galaxy Tab S4 also supports Samsung DeX functionality, which allows you to convert the tablet into a full-blown computer for when you’re done using it to watch videos. And the added S-Pen helps you unlock your creativity or be a master notetaker. 

Moto G8 Plus 64GB is $205

Amazon is currently offering the GSM unlocked Motorola Moto G8 Plus 64GB Android Smartphone for $205. Having dropped from $275, today’s offer is good for a nearly 25% discount, comes within $5 of our previous mention for the all-time low, and is the second-best we’ve seen. As one of the latest additions to the Moto Android smartphone family, the G8 Plus sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ display and is rounded out by a 48MP camera, ultra-wide lens, and depth sensor.
