All of today’s best mid-week deals are headlined by up to $410 off refurb Samsung Galaxy S21/+/Ultra models. That’s on top of an official Samsung Qi pad at $25 and a new low on Garmin’s solar-powered fēnix 6 Pro Smartwatch. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Samsung Galaxy S21/+/Ultra refurb smartphones now up to $410 off

Today only, Woot has launched its latest certified refurbished Samsung Android smartphone sale. Delivering a series of previous-generation handsets, the Galaxy S21 series are some of the more notable inclusions, and the Galaxy S21 5G is the highlight amongst them from $500. Available in more styles than last time around, this is the second-best price to date from the original $800 going rate at $300 off.

This may not be the new Galaxy S22 that just dropped earlier in the year, but Samsung’s now previous-generation entry-level smartphone still packs plenty of flagship-caliber specs. There’s a 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2x screen that’s backed by an up to 120Hz refresh rate. Powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor, you’ll enjoy all-day battery life as well as 128GB of storage and a triple-sensor camera array around back. In our hands-on review, we found that it made all of the right compromises – it includes a 90-day warranty, too. Head below for more.

Samsung’s official 9W Qi charging pad falls to new all-time low

Amazon is now offering the official Samsung 9W Qi Wireless Charging Pad for $25. Normally fetching $40, today’s offer is notably delivering the very first markdown of the year alongside a new all-time low. We last saw this one go on sale back in the fall of 2021 where it sold for $30.

Delivering a first-party charging experience for less, this in-house Qi pad complements your Galaxy handset with 9W charging speeds. It has a streamlined build that won’t take up too much space on the desk or nightstand, and this package even includes a wall adapter and USB-C cord. 

Garmin’s solar-powered fēnix 6 Pro Smartwatch down to 2022 low

Amazon currently offers the Garmin fēnix 6 Pro Solar GPS Smartwatch for $680 in Slate Gray. Down from the usual $800 price tag, you’re looking at the second markdown of the year at $120 off while delivering the best price outside of the holiday season last year. This is also $20 under our previous mention.

If the more popular Apple and Fitbit solutions won’t cut it for your fitness companion needs, the Garmin fēnix 6 Pro Solar steps up with an even more capable feature set. Its more rugged and water-resistant casing houses a 1.2-inch display and all of the usual workout tracking tech. On top of its solar-powered design that can extend battery life up to 59-days, there’s integrated topographic maps, GPS, and altimeter. A bevy of other sensors like heart rate, VO2 max, and Pulse Ox complete the package.

TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra will run Wear OS 3 and sees first discount to $255

The official Mobvoi storefront on Amazon is offering its TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra smartwatch for $255. Normally listed for $300, this 15% discount marks the first price drop we’ve seen for this smartwatch, and thus the new low price. Running Google Wear OS and a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 processor, the TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra delivers “faster and smoother performance and connectivity.”

The watch monitors your heart rate, blood oxygen, sleeping patterns, stress, and more in one small package. With the Pro 3 Ultra, Mobvoi added IHB/AFiB detection and fatigue assessment. The IP68 waterproof rating means you’ll have no issue keeping this smartwatch on while swimming. There are 20+ professional sports modes the watch can track while you’re working out, and it can monitor your running routes with the built-in GPS. With a battery life of 72 hours in smart mode, you won’t have to worry if you forget to charge the watch one night. Mobvoi also claims 45 days of life in the essential mode. Be sure to check out our launch coverage for the Pro 3 Ultra.
