All of today’s best deals are headlined by a pair of Google Nest Mini speakers for $39. That’s alongside a new low on the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 at $100 and an HP 11-inch Chromebook for $180. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Grab two Google Nest Mini for $39

Adorama is now offering a 2-pack of Google Nest Mini Smart Speakers for $39. Typically fetching $49 each, we last saw them on sale for $25 apiece with today’s offer saving you 60% while marking the best value we’ve seen this year.

Google Nest Mini provides the most affordable way to get in on the Assistant smart home ecosystem. There’s the familiar fabric-wrapped design you’ll expect as well as a compact footprint that’s just as idea for the family room as it is the bedside table and more. So whether you need to command connected lighting or call up some cooking help in the kitchen, Nest Mini is an essential upgrade for those in Google’s smart home ecosystem. Dive into our hands-on review for a closer look.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 hit $100

Woot is now offering the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 in a variety of styles for $100. Typically fetching $150, you’re looking at a new all-time low that’s $15 under our previous mention and $10 below the best we’ve seen before. For comparison, these are currently sitting at the Amazon low of $129 as well. 

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 deliver many of the flagship features you’d expect given that these are Samsung’s latest releases, but with a more affordable price tag than you’ll find on the pro model. Active noise cancellation is easily one of those highlights, but you’ll also benefit from up to 29 hours of battery life being paired with Qi wireless charging support. Not to mention, there’s also an Earbud fit test for getting the best seal. Check out all of the details in our hands-on review.

Score an HP 11-inch Chromebook for just $180

Amazon is currently offering HP’s 11-inch Touchscreen Chromebook 2GHz/4GB/32GB for $180. Typically going for around $270, today’s $90 savings undercut our previous mention by $50, marking one of the best prices we’ve tracked all-time.

Centered on the 11.6-inch HD touchscreen display, HP’s compact Chromebook is perfect for students or working on the go thanks to the 15-hour battery life. The whole thing is powered by a 2.0GHz processor with integrated graphics, as well as Google’s Chrome OS. So you can enjoy tons of built-in programs for school, work, or surfing the web, plus up to 100GB of cloud storage through Google Drive to complement the 4GB already onboard. 

Amazon launches Garmin smartwatch sale

Amazon is currently discounting a selection of Garmin smartwatches and fitness trackers, with the Instinct Solar Surf leading the way at $397. Down from $450, you’re looking at a rare discount overall with $53 in savings while also marking the second-best price of the year.

Here you’ll find Garmin’s signature rugged form-factor alongside a novel solar-powered design to standout from other smartwatches on the market, be it in the brand’s stable or the competition. This model in particular lives up to the Surf name with a 100-meter waterproof rating. Plus, there’s an array of sensors like GPS, altimeter, compass, and more on top of its heart rate and fitness tracking features to round out the 24-day battery life. 

Score a rare discount on the Microsoft Surface Headphones 2

Amazon is now offering the Microsoft Surface Headphones 2 for $232. Marking an all-around rare discount, you’re looking at only the second price cut of the year and a new 2021 low from its usual $250 price tag.

Having launched last fall, Microsoft’s follow-up to its popular headphones arrive with plenty of tech to support the second-generation designation. You’re notably looking at an Omnisonic sound feature that delivers a Spatial Audio-like experience as well as the signature on-ear dial for quickly adjusting volume. There’s up to 18.5 hours of playback on a single charge and a USB-C input for when it does come time to plug in. Dive into our launch coverage.
