Samsung’s ANC Galaxy Buds Live wireless earbuds drop to $90
Amazon is offering the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live True Wireless Earbuds for $90. Regularly $170 and currently fetching as much at Best Buy, this is up to 47% off the going rate, the lowest price we have tracked on Amazon since December of last year, and the best we can find.
AKG-tuned 12mm speakers and “enhanced bass” are joined by active noise cancellation and up to 29-hours of playback via the wireless charging Qi case. The unique bean-shaped form-factor also houses an always-on voice assistant alongside compatibility with both Android and iOS smartphones. Get an even closer look in our hands-on review.
Lenovo Smart Frame brings Google Assisant to a 21-inch form-factor
Amazon is currently offering the Lenovo 21.5-inch Smart Frame for $230. While you’d more regularly pay $400, today’s offer is marking the second-best price of the year at $170 off while coming within $30 of the low set back in February.
Bringing Google Assistant to one of the larger screen-based form-factors out there, the Lenovo Smart Frame is part digital work of art and smart display. Sporting a 21.5-inch 1080p screen, it can display personal photos, digital works of art, and more alongside integrating with both Alexa and Assistant. Dive into our hands-on review for a closer look.
Samsung’s new Galaxy S22 Ultra S-View Flip Covers see first discounts
Amazon now offers the official Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra S-View Flip Cover from $35. These are the very first price cuts from the usual $50 price tag and marking new all-time lows on Samsung’s latest case.
Refreshing one of Samsung’s more popular covers to go with the new Galaxy S22 Ultra, this updated S-View Flip Cover packs a new design that still pulls off the same feat we’ve seen in the past. It provides full protection of your handset thanks to a wrap-around folio design, with the front cover sporting a transparent cutout that allows you to keep tabs on the time, notifications, and more.
First price drops hit Samsung’s brand new T7 Shield rubberized portable SSD
After just launching yesterday (here’s our hands-on review), Amazon is now offering the first price drops on Samsung’s new T7 Shield portable Solid-State Drives. Releasing with a $160 and $290 MSRP on the 1TB and 2TB models, you can now score them for $135 and $240, respectively. Today’s deals are available in all three colorways as well.
Delivering a ridged, rubberized elastomer exterior with 9.8-foot drop protection, IP65 water resistance, and “extreme“ temperature protection, these are the first price drops on the latest portable SSDs on the market. Clocking in at up to 1,050MB/s, they deliver USB-C connectivity alongside support for USB 3.2 Gen 2 gear as well as AES 256-bit hardware encryption and optional password protection.

Amazfit’s latest GTR and GTS 3 Smartwatches on sale from $140
Amazon is now offering the Amazfit GTR 3 Smartwatch for $140. Normally fetching $180, you’re looking at $40 in savings alongside the second-best price to date that beats our previous mention by $10. Arriving as one of Amazfit’s latest smartwatches, the new GTR 3 just launched back in October with a circular 1.39-inch AMOLED display form-factor complete with 21-day battery life. As for its actual fitness features, you’ll find 150 different sport modes on top of the ability to monitor blood oxygen levels, heart rate, and more. Our launch coverage details everything else you’ll need to know, as well.
A more affordable option, but still one of the brand’s latest releases nonetheless, the Amazfit GTS 3 Smartwatch is currently down to $150 at Amazon. We’ve seen this one go for less in the past, but today’s $30 discount still delivers one of the first overall price cuts to date. This one trades in the more sleek circular design for a traditional smartwatch look with an always-on 1.75-inch AMOLED display and suite of sensors like the BioTracker PPG 3 biometric monitor for tracking blood-oxygen saturation alongside heart rate, sleep, stress, and all of the usual fitness stats.
