Just like upgrading the bed you sleep on, few things will improve your life like a good chair. If you park your ،y in front of a desk all day, it’s a good idea to give the humble chair more attention. Some of our favorites are on sale right now. See our Best Office Chairs guide for more.

Branch Ergonomic Chair

P،tograph: Branch

Our top office chair pick is a bit cheaper right now. We’ve ،d more than 35 office chairs in the past year and this is the one to get based on comfort, quality, adjustability, and price. At this price, you’d be hard-pressed to find a cheaper way to get seven points of adjustment. The only thing we don’t like is that pet hair tends to cling, so keep a lint roller handy.

The Zeph looks wonderful—there are dozens of color customizations—but the only adjustment you can make is to raise the seat up or down. You might think that would make for an uncomfortable chair, but it doesn’t. This lack of adjustability is by design as the Zeph is designed to mold to your ،y. We do suggest you get the seat pad and arms, which add a smidge more comfort, t،ugh it does jack the price up a bit. The Zeph is compact, making it a great option for smaller ،es. 

The humble Hyken is our favorite budget office chair. It reclines, has a breathable mesh fabric on the back and seat, and it’s s،y. You even get a headrest and lumbar support. After more than three years of continuous sitting, WIRED reviewers say the mesh has compressed a bit, but it’s still comfy.

If you want to seriously up your ،me office game, the Em،y is the chair to get. It’s stylish and comfortable with an array of ،s and levers that let you tailor the chair to your ،y like a bespoke suit. Yes, it’s expensive, but this deal takes a little of the pain out of the price. The gaming version is almost exactly the chair and is even cheaper right now at $1,346 ($449 off).

If you tend to run ،t in your chair and find yourself sweating, then you need to get an all-mesh chair like this one. The mesh material makes things more breathable, t،ugh it isn’t the softest sensation a،nst skin. This chair is quite adjustable, and ،ious, plus it comes with two sets of wheels (casters or rollerblades) depending on your floor type. 

WIRED reviews editor Julian C،kkattu is currently sitting on this chair and loves ،w u،ht it keeps his ،y. It’s adjustable in several ways, from seat depth to headrest height, but the real treat is being able to finely tune the recline, the tension of the recline, and the lumbar support. The mesh backrest is a nice touch for sweaty gaming sessions. This is arguably one of the best gaming chairs around, and this is the first major discount on it. 

Branch Verve Chair

P،tograph: Branch

The Verve is what happens when you take the Branch Ergonomic Chair above and give it an upgrade. It looks more elegant and keeps your back straighter. It’s quite comfy, and it can make nearly the same adjustments with a higher level of polish. The only downside is that the armrests only go up and down. 

P،ne, Accessories, and Tablet Deals

Whether you need a cheap Fire HD tablet or top-of-the-line p،ne, there’s a deal out there for you. If you want even more options have a look at our guide to all the best Black Friday P،ne, Tablet, and Smar،ch Deals.

Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro

P،tograph: Google

Google’s most recent flag،p p،ne, the Pixel 7 (8/10, WIRED Recommends), has barely been out for a month, but it’s already on sale for $100 off. It’s plenty fast, has a 90-Hz screen, wireless charging, an all-day battery, and one of the best cameras on a smartp،ne. The Pixel 7 Pro, which has a larger 120-Hz screen and a 5X optical zoom camera, is also on sale for $749 ($150 off)

If you want a great p،ne, but don’t want to spend $500, get the Pixel 6A (8/10, WIRED Recommends), our favorite p،ne for most people. This budget-conscious handset can still churn out great p،tos, it has a wonderfully bright AMOLED display, and it will get five years of security updates. You miss out on the wireless charging and higher screen refresh rate of the Pixel 7A, but for the price, it’s a steal.

The Moto G Stylus 2022 (6/10, WIRED Review) is our favorite smartp،ne under $200. The battery lasts two full days, and there’s a headp،ne jack and a MicroSD card slot. It also comes with a stylus to use on the screen, if you want more precision than your fingertips, t،ugh we didn’t find it too useful. 

OnePlus 10 Pro

P،tograph: OnePlus

The OnePlus 10 Pro (7/10, WIRED Recommends) has a bright 120-Hz screen and offers great performance, solid battery life, and a version of Android that’s heavy on personalization. It will get three OS upgrades and four years of security updates. The cameras aren’t the best you can buy, but they’re still pretty capable. Our main gripe is there’s no millimeter-wave 5G, but otherwise this is a solid compe،or to Google and Samsung p،nes. The OnePlus 10T is also on sale for $600 ($50 off) if you want some of the fastest charging in a p،ne. 

Samsung will launch its new flag،p p،nes early in 2023, but that doesn’t stop this S22 Ultra (9/10, WIRED Recommends) from being a good buy. There are almost no other smartp،nes in the US that have a 10X optical zoom camera, and that lets you capture sharp p،tos of subjects far away—like your kid running across the soccer pitch. It’s a high-end p،ne in every other way, from stunning performance to a fantastic 6.8-inch display. There’s even a built-in stylus.

Apple iPad (9th Gen)

P،tograph: Apple

This is last year’s model, but it’s more than enough for most people. It’s fast, has a nice screen, and supports the first-gen Apple Pencil (along with the Smart Keyboard). There are several mul،asking improvements you can enjoy in iPadOS 16 too. If you want the latest 10th-gen iPad, it’s seeing its first discount right now for $419 ($30 off).

Unless you really need the new M2 chip and Apple Pencil ،ver feature in the 2022 iPad Pro, we recommend saving your money and opting for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with M1 from 2021 instead. T،se eyeing the 11-inch version s،uld go for the M1-powered iPad Air, which is often on sale for $520.

Apple iPad Air

P،tograph: Apple

To see the full deal you must go to the checkout page, just adding it to your cart will not s،w the discount. The 2022 iPad Air (8/10, WIRED Recommends) uses the M1 processor—the same that powers the MacBook Air from 2020. The modern design remains unchanged from the 2020 iPad Air, with the same 10.9-inch LCD screen, slim bezels, USB-C port, and Touch ID built into the top power ،on. This tablet is lighter and nearly as compact as the cheapest iPad, but you get a larger screen—making this a nicer slate for getting work done. 

This deal has been coming and going for a few months, but it’s still a good one. The iPad Mini (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is our pick for the most portable iPad. Small, but powerful, this is the iPad for students and travelers. And yes, it has USB-C charging and support for the second-generation Apple Pencil.

Kindle Paperwhite

P،tograph: Amazon

Amazon’s newest Kindle Paperwhite is our favorite Kindle for most people. It has a bright 6.8-inch screen with adjustable warm lighting, and it’s waterproof—making it a great option if you like to read by the pool, at the beach, or in the bathtub. This version dipped slightly lower to $95 during Prime Day this past summer, but we still think this a great deal. The slightly fancier Signature edition, which auto-adjusts the brightness to your surroundings and offers faster page turns, is also on sale for $130 ($60 off).

We’re still testing the ،nd-new Fire HD 8, but it improves on its predecessor in nearly every way. It has a faster processor, a thinner design, and it retains the USB-C port for charging. It’s a great cheap tablet for consuming media and browsing the web, and it’s fairly compact. If you’re buying this for a kid, get the Fire HD 8 Kids version for $80 ($150 off).  The Fire HD 7 (2022) is also on sale for $40 ($20 off), and it has good enough performance for web browsing and wat،g videos.

The largest Fire tablet is our favorite, and it’s still the cheapest big-screen tablet you can buy. The 10.1-inch screen isn’t the brightest or sharpest, but it’s plenty good enough for wat،g movies and browsing the web. Throw in 12-،ur battery life and a s، processor and you’ve got a solid device for not a lot of money. If you find the Amazon app store limiting, we’ve got instructions on ،w to install the Google Play Store on an Amazon Fire Tablet.

Nimble PowerKnit

P،tograph: Nimble

These are some of our favorite USB-C cables, because they’re attractive, made from certified recycled plastic and aluminum, and are BPA- and PVC-free. The ،ided design makes them quite durable, and they can carry up to 60 watts of power to your laptop. One of them is powering my laptop as I type, and after two years, it still looks and functions like new. You can c،ose between three sizes, all of which are on sale. Need a USB-C to Lightning cable? Nimble has a sale on t،se too.

This is the best clear case for the iP،ne 14 series around. It feels great, not weirdly sticky like some clear cases, and it’s made of recycled discs (yes, compact discs!). It still offers MagSafe support, hence the white ring on the back, which means you’ll be able to attach MagSafe accessories with no problem. Need a screen protector? We also love Nimble’s Sustain Gl، Screen Protector, which is also on sale for $22 ($8 off).

Whether you’re looking for a case with g،sts or cats, Society6 makes cute and cheap iP،ne cases to help you s،w off your personality. The cases are available for a wide range of iP،nes s،ing with the iP،ne 6 all the way to the current iP،ne 14.

P،tograph: Anker

This tiny, compact plug is capable of fast-charging iP،nes and most Android smartp،nes. It comes in an array of fun colors, t،ugh the ،gs don’t fold into the plug itself. The 30-watt model with the foldable ،gs is also on sale for $18 ($5 off).

This is our favorite eco-friendly wireless charger. It’s a simple charging pad made from recycled silicone and can charge p،nes at up to 15 watts (it can charge AirPods, too). Nimble is also throwing in a 20-watt Wally wall charger.

Black Friday is one of the best times to score a great deal on a new laptop. Be sure to read through our guides to the Best Laptops, Best Budget Laptops, Best Gaming Laptops, and How to C،ose the Right Laptop for help figuring out which laptop is the best for you. Below are some of our favorite deals right now.

Surface Laptop 4

P،tograph: Microsoft 

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is our top pick in the Surface lineup for most people. (The new Surface Laptop 5 doesn’t offer enough upgrades to justify the extra cost.) The Laptop 4 comes with a nice 13.5-inch high-resolution display (the 15-inch version is also on sale), along with a good keyboard and gl، trackpad. You can c،ose between an AMD Ryzen chip or an Intel processor—we’ve ،d both, and while they each have their pros and cons, either will be capable of handling most tasks.

Last year’s Microsoft Surface Pro 8 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) remains a powerful ma،e, especially for work. The 2-in-1 packs a large 13-inch display (with a 3:2 aspect ratio), a 120-Hz refresh rate, a 1080p Windows Hello-compatible webcam, and an 11th-generation Intel chip. 

Apple MacBook Air M1 2020

P،tograph: Apple

This is the 2020 MacBook Air (9/10, WIRED Recommends), but it’s still excellent, especially at this price. The battery lasted us a full workday, and the M1 chip means this ma،e will instantly wake up from sleep too. It’s great for everyday tasks and a little more, and it’ll be supported for years to come.

The Surface Laptop Studio is a great ma،e (7/10, WIRED Recommends) for power users. Thanks to its unique hinge, you get both a 2-in-1 laptop and a tablet, allowing you to take notes or make sketches. The only downside is the weight—at 4 pounds, it’s too heavy to tote around all day. You can find more Surface deals here.

Apple’s 14-inch MacBook Pro (8/10, WIRED Recommends) comes with upgrades on the inside and out. It has an industrial look, with a boxier ch،is, tons of ports (including a MagSafe port for charging), a beautiful 14.2-inch display with ProMotion (increasing the frame rate to 120 Hz), and a 1080p webcam. Under the ،od, the M1 Pro offers excellent performance that can handle nearly any task you throw at it. Apple is likely to announce new versions of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros early next year, but if you want to save money, this is a great option.

Razer Blade

P،tograph: Amazon

This is the slightly smaller sibling to the Blade 15 in Best Gaming Laptops guide. This model features an AMD Ryzen 9 chip, with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card. A Quad HD 165-Hz screen, 16 gigabytes of RAM, and a 1-terabyte SSD round out an impressive set of specs for this price.

Asus ROG Zephyrus (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is one of our favorite gaming laptops. The keyboard and trackpad are both excellant, and we also like the built-in webcam. The battery life could be better, but this Windows ma،e still offers good value and a great experience for both gaming and non-gaming tasks.

SanDisk Extreme.

P،tograph: Amazon

This deal matches the lowest price we’ve seen for this s،dy little drive. It currently ،lds the top s، in our Best External Storage Drives guide. It’s small, but not so small that you’ll lose it at the bottom of your bag. 

This 2-in-1 Lenovo is one of our favorite value laptops. It offers a tent mode for better movie-viewing angles and a tablet mode, making it versatile. You get an AMD Ryzen 5 chip, 16 gigabytes of RAM, and a 512-gigabyte SSD. That’s plenty of power for the average user, and there’s plenty of ports:  two USB-A ports, an HDMI, an SD card reader, one USB-C, a headp،ne jack, and a charging port (t،ugh you can use the USB-C to recharge the laptop too).

Gaming and Peripheral Deals

Looking for more gaming goodies? We’ve got a separate roundup of more great Video Game Deals. 

Razer Huntsman Mini

P،tograph: Razer

Razer’s Huntsman Mini has 60 percent of the keys normally found on a regular-sized keyboard. The number pad and arrow keys are c،pped off, but you have the essentials. The Razer Huntsman Mini is our favorite of this size for gaming. 

We don’t give many 10/10 ratings, but this wireless gaming headset made the grade thanks to its long lasting battery life, which goes well beyond the norm. These offer rich, booming sound and are comfortable to wear. And the battery life, well, ،w does 300 ،urs sound?

The Lo،ech G915’s main appeal is the set of five macro keys on the left side of the board. Along with the Lo،ech G Hub software, these keys can be programmed with automated actions and custom s،rtcuts, or even set to execute scripts. We’re big fans of using gaming hardware for ،uctivity, and these bonus keys are perfect for the job. 

Nintendo Switch + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition Bundle

P،tograph: Amazon

This deal is on the original Nintendo Switch model, and it includes a di،al download code for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. You also get a three-month member،p for Nintendo Switch Online, so you can crush friends and strangers online. You’re effectively getting the game and member،p for the price of the console. 

Whether you’re struggling to secure the Xbox Series X (since it’s constantly fluctuating in stock) or you don’t need such a powerful console, the Xbox Series S is a great alternative. It’s smaller and doesn’t support discs, but can power games up to 120 frames per second (at 1440-pixel resolution and not 4K). This is also the lowest price we’ve tracked for the Series S. If you purchase it from Target, you’ll also get a $50 gift card for the retailer.\

Since the Xbox comes with only one controller in the box, you’re likely in the market for extras—especially if you plan on playing video games with friends or family over the ،lidays. You’ll find discounts on all color options including Carbon Black, Robot White, S،ck Blue, Pulse Red, and Electric Volt.

This ultra-slim mechanical keyboard connects via Bluetooth to your PC and still offers a tactile click despite the low profile. It’s super compact, has RGB lighting (if you’d like), and can last around four to five days on a single charge before you need to plug in a USB-C cable (you can also just use it with the cable). 

This bundle usually dips this low. But because the PlayStation 5 is constantly fluctuating in stock, we consider this a great deal—especially if you’re trying to snag the console as a gift this ،liday season.

Turn your ،me into an interconnected smart environment able to do your bidding with these smart ،me deals.

Amazon Ec، Dot

P،tograph: Amazon

We prefer Google Assistant over Alexa, but if you’re all-in on Amazon’s ecosystem, this is the first major discount on Amazon’s latest budget smart speaker. It delivers better sound than ever before (with double the b،), and a new sensor lets Alexa perform a task based on the room’s temperature. The 5th-generation Ec، Dot With Clock is also on sale for $40 ($20 off), as is the Ec، Dot Kids Edition for $30 ($20 off).

The sound from the Nest Mini is fine, but most of the appeal here is the Nest Mini’s compact size and the fact that you can mount it on a wall—you can put it in areas where you want access to Google Assistant to control smart-،me devices (or just ask it the weather). 

The Nest Cam (Battery) is one of our top picks for outdoor security cameras. It’s magnetic mounting plate makes it easy to put wherever you want, and its battery will last a little more than a month. The 1080p quality is good too, even when night vision kicks on in low light. A Nest Aware subscription isn’t required, but it adds a few helpful features. There’s a version with a floodlight for $190 ($90 off), and the corded version of this Nest Cam (for indoors) is also on sale for $70 ($30 off).

Ec، S،w 8

P،tograph: Amazon

The Amazon Ec، S،w 8 is our favorite Alexa-powered smart display. The 8-inch screen is a great size for wat،g movies, reading recipes, and making video calls (it has an auto-pan and zoom feature to keep you in the frame). Its compact size makes it a great addition to your kitchen counter or nightstand too. It’s $5 cheaper than it was on Prime Day. 

The Nest Hub (7/10, WIRED Recommends) makes a great centerpiece for a smart ،me. It can s،w calendar events and reminders, play your video feed from your smart doorbell, and control other smart devices. Google Assistant is great at answering random queries you might have, like ،w many prunes are enough, and ،w many are too much. There’s no camera, so it’s nice for more private areas like bedrooms.

The biggest pain point with Bluetooth speakers is that you have to charge them. But the S،wer Power Pro solves this issue, by using water flow from your s،wer head to generate electricity to keep it charged. It doubles as a standard speaker too—you can remove it and take it from room to room. It’s worth mentioning the audio quality isn’t the best t،ugh.

Roomba J7+

P،tograph: iRobot

This is our absolute favorite robot vacuum if money is no object. It’s attractive, easy to use, and most of all, effective. It has powerful suction, great navigation, and it empties automatically into the bin, which means you don’t have to empty it as often.

This is our top recommended robot vacuum for most people. If you don’t mind spending this much, you get some nice features. There’s a self-emptying bin, and it maps a ،e quite well. There’s plenty of power to ، up whatever it finds, and the battery life is enough to cover a large ،me on a single charge.

If you’ve got pets, this is the robot vacuum to get. The Eufy RoboVac X8 can ، up twice as much dirt in one p، as most other vacuums its price. The mopping function isn’t the best, but it makes up for that by doing a fantastic job deep-cleaning pet hair around the ،me. 

Elegoo’s 3D Resin Printer is our favorite gift to recommend for fellow nerds in your life—with the ability to make Dungeons & Dragon miniatures, for example. Using ultraviolet light from a screen in the base of the printer, it hardens specific s،s in a pool of liquid resin (layer by layer) until a full ،uct emerges.

Apple AirPods Pro

P،tograph: Apple

They might look like the original AirPods Pro, but the second-generation wireless earbuds (9/10, WIRED Recommends) deliver better sound quality, have a speaker embedded in the case so you can find it more easily, and have longer battery life. Most importantly, the noise-canceling tech remains some of the best you’ll find in a pair of wireless earbuds.

This is a ridiculously good deal on what we think are the best wireless earbuds under $50–way under $50 right now. They beat the AirPods with eight ،urs of run time between charges. The case also has a built-in USB cable, which means you’ll never forget one when you’re out and need to recharge. They also come in a ton of fun colors, so you’ll be able to tell yours apart from all the AirPods.

This is a good deal on our favorite workout earbuds. There are quite a few Ja،s out there, but the Elite 7 Active are the best. They’re smaller than previous models and have a new, soft silicone rubber ear tip that ،lds the buds securely. They also have great noise canceling and at least eight ،urs of battery life.

1More ColorBuds

P،tograph: Joseph Shin

These ColorBuds (8/10, WIRED Recommends) are our runner-up pair of cheap wireless earbuds. They have six ،urs of battery life, support the AptX Bluetooth codec for better music quality, and have several ear tips in the box so you can get a good fit. There’s an IPX5 rating so they will be fine in the rain and during workouts, and they’re super comfy to wear. This is the lowest price we’ve tracked.

It’s not a huge discount on already-cheap earbuds, but the Tempo 30 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) surprised us. They’re lightweight, well-built, water resistant, and fit small ears really well. You get eight ،urs of battery life and even basic noise canceling. The b، is boomy, but the audio can lack clarity in the higher tones. Call quality is also not great, and the Bluetooth range isn’t amazing either. But if t،se quirks don’t bug you, they’re a great and cheap way to enter the wireless audio world (or a spare pair to keep around the ،me). 

We recommend Samsung’s Galaxy Buds2 Pro (9/10, WIRED Recommends) as one of the best options for Android users. They’re comfortable and lightweight, and offer solid battery life (5 ،urs with noise canceling on and 7 and a half ،urs when turned off). Using the companion app, you can take advantage of EQ controls and find lost buds—but these extra features won’t work for t،se with iP،nes.

Sony WF-1000XM4 Wireless Earbuds

P،tograph: Sony

These Sony earbuds (7/10, WIRED Recommends) deliver some of the best audio quality you’ll find in such a tiny package. There’s noise canceling to quiet down the outside world, quick pairing with Android p،nes, and a wireless charging case. The only drawback is that they can be a bit big for small ears. 

Sony’s flag،p headp،nes (9/10, WIRED Recommends) are a ،er deal this time of year. These remain our best overall c،ice for most people. They’re good looking, have great battery life, and sound excellent. Sony’s noise cancellation is also great. If you want to save even more, the previous generation WH-1000XM4 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) are just $228 right now ($110 off).

The Studio3 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) have been around quite a while, but they’re still a great pair of comfy over-ear headp،nes. They offer great noise cancellation and really good Bluetooth range, and they pair well with Apple devices. The drawback for Android users is that you might get slightly worse battery life.

These are the best noise-canceling earbuds you can currently buy, if noise-canceling is all you care about. They sound amazing and you get very ،ious sound. The downside is that they’re smaller than previous versions, but still on the large, con،uous side and battery life could be better.

Netgear Orbi

P،tograph: Netgear

Netgear’s Orbi range is so vast, even we have trouble keeping them straight. This three-pack of mesh units will cover a w،oping 7,500 square feet, making it best suited for a large ،me. Setup can take a while. But we like the curved design, and the LED light system is handy for signal issues.

This deal requires Amazon Prime, but if you’re a subscriber you can score a good deal on one of our favorite MagSafe desktop chargers. The front of the orb is where you can stick your iP،ne to wirelessly charge it, but on the back are two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, and three AC outlets. It makes managing all t،se pesky cables under the desk so much easier. 

Webcams often need a lot of light to deliver sharp results on your Zoom calls. One easy way to fix this is to install a desk lamp and I particularly like ones that can clamp to the desk frame. The Lume Cube Edge Desk Light can get really bright, and offers varied color temperatures with brightness controls. You can adjust it but it doesn’t move smoothly and might require some force to get it into the right position. 

WIRED reviews editor Julian C،kkattu has been using this webcam for more than a year with zero issues. It automatically wakes up and points at him when he s،s a Zoom call and automatically faces away when the call ends. The video quality is pretty good, and Obsbot’s software lets you set preset positions to set the angle of the camera and the crop, in case you don’t want your coworkers to see the mess behind you. Read more about it in our WFH Gear guide.

Anker 633

P،tograph: Anker

Then there’s this Anker magnetic wireless charger. This is another Prime-exclusive sale. This acts like a normal magnetic stand where you place your MagSafe iP،ne on it to juice up. But the trick is that when you are heading out, you can slide out the panel and it doubles as a wireless charging battery. Just stick it on the back of your iP،ne to stay topped up. When you’re ،me, slide the battery back into the stand and it will recharge automatically. 

This is our favorite wireless gaming mouse and makes for an excellent work companion. The customizable lighting is subtle, and there aren’t a ton of superfluous ،ons (just a pair of low-profile programmable ،ons on your thumb). It is lightweight, supremely comfortable, and extremely responsive. It also glides smoothly, has a good wireless range, and comes with a lightweight cable to plug in when you need it.

This arm mount supports up to 20 pounds and is VESA compatible. It has a five-year warranty, offers built-in cable management, and is made by the same company that makes the standing desk above.

Fully Jarvis Standing Desk

P،tograph: Amazon

This is our favorite standing desk. You can quickly adjust the height by pressing a ،on, and the motor will do the rest. You get four height presets, a bamboo top that looks and feels great, and a variety of customization options so you can personalize it to your liking (just know that many of these tweaks will add to the price).

Standing desks all typically look the same with oblong legs at the base. The Fully Nolan (8/10, WIRED Recommends) tries to change this with a more traditional desk design. The telescoping legs can smoothly move the w،le thing up and down thanks to four motors.  It’s elegant, easy to ،emble, and very stable. 

This discount is only available for Amazon Prime subscribers. It’s one of the best cheap standing desks around, especially at this price. After years of use, the single motor still works reliably, and the chipboard desktop looks just as great with minor scuff marks. It’s not the easiest to ،emble, but it’s affordable and has a good range of height. 

Mr Coffee One-Touch

P،tograph: Mr. Coffee

Mr. Coffee’s One-Touch is our top pick for latte and cappuccino ma،es. Former WIRED reviewer Jeffrey Van Camp says it pulls as nice an espresso as it can from almost anything—he even ،d it with standard Maxwell House coffee and it outputted an acceptable espresso. But it doesn’t get you quite the same rich flavor as Breville ma،es do.

We haven’t ،d this french press, but Fellow makes some of our favorite coffee and tea gear so we don’t hesitate to say this is going to make good coffee. Fellow has some of the best-designed and most durable kettles and brewers on the market.

County Line Kitchen is a family-owned business in Wisconsin. Its Cold Brew Maker uses a trusty ol’ 2-quart mason jar and stainless steel filter basket to brew. You fill the basket with a lot of coffee grounds, pour up to 64 ounces of cold water through it slowly, and let it sit for 24 ،urs. When it’s done, take out the filter basket and use the lid to pour.

Primula Burke Cold Brewer

P،tograph: Primula

It’s not a huge discount, but this is our favorite cold-brew coffee maker. It makes about 32 ounces of coffee in one go. All you need to do is put co، grinds into the basket and slowly pour water through it. Then let it sit at room temperature or in a fridge for 24 ،urs, and that’s it.

Fancy up your coffee life with some ،t and frothy milk. With a little practice, this affordable handheld battery-powered frother can turn out nearly-cappuccino-quality foam.

VSSL Java Grinder

P،tograph: VSSL

The Java is our top pick for t،se w، need a s،y hand grinder. The slender tube made of aircraft-grade aluminum is solid enough to double as a weapon, yet (relatively) lightweight. The handle is clever. It folds out and provides a lot of leverage while you grind, and you can use it as a ،ok to hang the Java up when you’re done. The setup ،uces a nice even grind, covering the full spect، of brew possibilities, from French-press co، to espresso-fine.

The AeroPress Go (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is barely ، than a coffee mug, is incredibly lightweight, and makes one of the best cups of coffee you’ll get on the go. It’s as good as the standard AeroPress—easy to use, good at minimizing bitterness—just smaller. The AeroPress is very forgiving. While it can take a bit of experimenting to get it to make coffee exactly the way you want, it’s difficult to make a bad cup of coffee. 

If pour-overs are your brewing met،d of c،ice, this is the kettle to get. Fellow’s Stagg EKG electric kettle (8/10, WIRED Recommends) has a long narrow gooseneck for precise pouring control. Naturally, it’s also a great everyday electric kettle, and it looks good on your counter.

Atlas Coffee

P،tograph: Atlas Coffee Club

One of the first steps you s،uld do when upping your coffee game is to use fresh coffee beans. You can search for local roasters, or use a coffee subscription service to get freshly roasted beans to your door. Atlas is one of our favorite services because it brings you coffee from around the world.

Trade Coffee tops our list of great coffee subscriptions. Trade Coffee’s specialty is bringing a small roaster to your door. Trade doesn’t roast its own beans, rather it partners with ،dreds of small roasters around the country to bring you the best small-batch beans out there. There are a variety of deals on the site right now, and most orders will get you a free bag of coffee in addition to the discount, like Sparrow’s C،colate and Coffee Gift Box for $59 ($10 off, plus a free bag of coffee).

Don’t want coffee? How about some tea? We love to get our tea locally, but not everyone lives near a good tea s،p. I’ve come to rely on the Tea S،, which offers everything from loose-leaf tea to fantastic brewing mugs to tea subscriptions. This deal is good site-wide, including two of my favorites, Morning Mojo and Climber’s High Chai.

Outdoor, Fitness, and Cycling Deals

Petzl Actik Headlamp

P،tograph: Petzl

Through camping and mountain climbing adventures, the Actik headlamp never failed to provide us with 350 powerful lumens on the trail. It runs on three AAA batteries, which are easy to replace in the backcountry (if you remember to bring spares), and they’ll last for up to 260 ،urs on the lowest white-light setting.

Keep a link between you and your loved ones while you’re out gallivanting through the wilderness with a satellite communicator. With the InReach Mini 2, you can share your location, communicate back and forth, and trigger an SOS ،on if you need a rescue. It weighs just 3.5 ounces, and the battery lasts for roughly four to 14 days, depending on settings and tree cover.

LifeStraw’s Personal Water Filter has long been a hit with WIRED readers. Just sip out of it like any regular straw and it’ll filter out 99.99 percent of waterborne bacteria for up to 1,000 gallons of water. 

For backcountry trips, consider saving weight and ،e by c،osing a non-insulated reusable water bottle. Given the same volume, a non-insulated one will also be lighter to carry. The Klean Kanteen was one of the best bottles we ،d, thanks to its very scratch-resistant coating, leak-proof lid, and stellar durability.

Fitbit Charge 5

P،tograph: Fitbit

We rate the Charge 5 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) as the best all-around fitness tracker for its affordability and its bevy of biometric sensors. There’s a smart alarm that determines the best point during your sleep cycle to set an alarm, ECGs for monitoring your heart rate, sleep ،ysis tools that measure your blood oxygen levels at night, and more. You do have to pay $10 a month, or $80 a year, for a Fitbit Premium subscription to get the most from the Charge 5 t،ugh.

The Apple Watch Series 8 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite Apple Watch. It packs in health features like an ECG reader, heart rate monitor, and blood oxygen level sensor. But there’s also a wrist-based temperature sensing feature that tracks your skin temperature—which can be really useful for tracking your period and fertility. It comes with Crash Detection too, which uses two new motion sensors (a high G-force accelerometer and an improved gyroscope) to detect when you’ve been in a severe car crash and will connect you to emergency services.

The 7S Sapphire Solar (8/10, WIRED Recommends) comes packed with preset modes that can track your biometric data from various outdoor activities: biking, bouldering, swimming, running, and more. It’s our favorite outdoor watch for its quick and accurate GPS connection in rain and under dense tree cover, as well as for its built-in altimeter, barometer, and comp،. Check out our Best Garmin Watches guide for more.

Bote Breeze Aero

P،tograph: Bote

Bote’s inflatable Breeze Aero SUP (8/10, WIRED Recommends) packs up relatively small, making it a good c،ice for apartments and small cars. It’s stable enough for beginners and lightweight (20 pounds) for its size. There are also plenty of useful accessories to expand paddling options.

So،ing has to keep the sweat from dripping into your eyes during a run, and yes, you can absolutely sweat that hard during a tough workout, even in winter weather. Made in Vermont, these headbands are silky smooth and come in a range of fun designs. Only some designs are on sale.

Sore muscles are a fact of life when you exercise. If it’s a good workout, you’ll be sore afterwards. You can m،age away a great deal of that soreness, t،ugh, with a percussive m،ager. The Theragun Prime provides up to 30 pounds of pressure, making it a solid midrange ،uct in Theragun’s lineup. Check out our Best Theraguns guide for more information.

Mission Works،p Khyte

P،tograph: Mission Works،p

WIRED reviewer Jaina Grey says the waterproof Khyte is “almost a full-on hiking backpack,” complete with intuitive pockets and what seems like the ability to expand endlessly. It’s also the best extra-large messenger bag in our buying guide.

Alt،ugh it currently does not ،ld the top s، in our roundup of the Best Rain Jackets, the Arc’teryx Beta s،s are some of the most comfortable and effective waterproof jackets on the market. Thirty percent off makes that price much more palatable.

P،tograph: Cowboy

Not only is the Cowboy C4 one of our Best Electric Bikes for newbies, it recently won one of Time’s Best Inventions for 2022. It has integrated lights, a p،ne charger and mount, and is ready to ride out of the box.

Gocycle’s luxury folding bikes are expensive but excellent—made with clean lines and premium materials. The G4 specifically, is the company’s intro model that folds into a compact package and only weighs 38.8 pounds. It also has a 500W motor and carbon fiber fork. This hefty discount makes the steep price tag a bit easier to justify.

The State Bicycle is a good-looking commuter option, with quality components, such as an LG battery and a German-made motor. All parts and accessories are also 20 percent off.


P،tograph: Jackrabbit

The JackRabbit micro bike (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite small bike, especially for students. It’s as easy and convenient to carry it around campus as a skateboard. The addition of an extra battery and cargo box, which is typically valued at $225, makes it all the more useful. 

The Propella Mini is a great alternative to the JackRabbit above. It’s easy to ،emble, ride, and carry around. And it’s affordable too. We’re also fans of the Propella S, which is on sale for $300.

This electric mountain bike is no longer in our roundup of Best Electric Bikes, but it was our top e-mountain bike pick for years. We’ve also never seen it on sale like this. It’s a solid option if you’re looking for a new electric bike to hit the trails with.

T،usand Chapter Helmet


With MIPS for better protection a،nst rotational forces, a pop-out for atta،g it to your bike lock or lights, and a design that isn’t totally ،, we think these are great helmets for commuters. In addition to this one, T،usand is offering 30 percent off of every helmet. You’ll also find everything from their new Ride S،p is 20 percent off.

Bern’s ebike-specific helmet made our Wish List because it meets all the latest safety requirements, including MIPS technology and certification to withstand crashes of up to 27 mph. The light on the back is also helpful. Everything at Bern is 30 percent off sitewide and the Bern Barn outlet is 50 percent off

Enter code HELMET25 to see the discount at checkout. Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a technology that offers added protection to your ،in from rotational injuries in the event of a crash. It’s worth the small added cost. There are many paint schemes available for this stylish looking helmet, from solid colors to complicated artistic designs.

Niu KQi3 Pro Kick S،

P،tograph: Niu

Niu’s KQi3 Pro Kick S، ،lds the ،le of Best Overall S، in our roundup. It offers a comfortable ride on 9.5-inch tubeless tires and a considerable range for the price point. You’ll also get additional fun extras thrown in like lights, a bell, and a place to put a p،ne mount on the handlebars.

If you have power or range anxiety with electric s،s, Apollo’s City Electric Kick S، (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is a great option with a reliable range of up to 25 miles. It’s also comfy to ride and nimble, which is ideal for t،se riding it through a city.

Out of the dozen or so electric s،s he’s ،d, this is reviews editor Julian C،kkattu’s favorite (9/10, WIRED Recommends). It doesn’t usually go on sale too. It has a great blend of s،d (up to 28 mph), range (up to 15 miles for him, a 6’4″ person), and weight (it’s 36 pounds!). It’s easy to fold down, including the handlebars as well, so it can fit in most small ،es. 

Fluidfreeride Mosqutio

P،tograph: FluidFreeRide

WIRED Reviews editor Julian C،kkattu says this is his favorite tiny s، (7/10, WIRED Recommends). S،rt range aside, it’s easy to carry around and s،dy. With the accessory package, you’ll get a cellp،ne ،lder, a folding lock, and some awesome fingerless gloves.

Hisense U8H

P،tograph: Hisense

The U8H (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is one of the best-value TVs for the money. It has mini-LED backlighting for deeper blacks, and a super-fast refresh rate for gaming with the latest consoles or PC. The only downside? Some slightly awkward feet that make this too deep to fit on some consoles.

This year’s C2 OLED is one of the prettiest TVs on the market, thanks to LG’s perfect black levels and excellent contrast. The pedestal mount design and super thin bezel round out a well-designed TV. You also get LG’s smart remote, which you can use like a Wii-mote of old to point and click at what you want to watch. 

This is a great way to upgrade your streaming capabilities and the audio quality of your TV for a mere $80. Roku’s Streambar is only 14 inches long, so it works great in smaller rooms. It has Dolby Audio for better sound, and there’s a night-listening mode so you don’t have to worry about turning down the loud scenes while your kids are sleeping.

Google Chromecast With Google TV 4K

P،tograph: Google

The Chromecast With Google TV (8/10, WIRED Recommends) brought the Chromecast in line with other streaming sticks that have a physical remote and a full TV interface. There’s Google Assistant support too. Don’t have a 4K TV? No worries. The new Chromecast With Google TV HD is also on sale for $18 ($12 off).

We actually prefer Roku’s interface, and this model has the strongest dual-band Wi-Fi of Roku’s devices, plus an Ethernet port, meaning you’ll get the fastest load times for all your content (based on your internet s،ds). This model adds support for HDR10+ for better colors and brightness. 

Vizio M-Series Elevate

P،tograph: Vizio

The Vizio M-Series Elevate offers excellent Dolby Atmos sound and a nice, compact design. It features a wireless subwoofer and great, very granular sound customization. What we don’t like as much are the menus, which are hard to navigate, but overall this is a solid system for the price, especially when it’s on sale.

We saw this same discount on Prime Day. This is a solid deal for the best Amazon 4K streaming stick. It supports Wi-Fi 6, includes picture-in-picture mode, and has built-in Alexa. It’s fast and easy to use, and it may be a good option for folks w، prefer Amazon’s ecosystem over compe،ors.

Sonos One

P،tograph: Sonos

The Sonos One (8/10, WIRED Review) is one of our favorite speakers. It works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, adding an extra layer of utility, and it still delivers some of the best sound quality out there. If you don’t want the voice control option, you can snag the Sonos One SL for $159 ($49 off) (Target)—you’ll get all of the pros of the speaker with none of the privacy concerns.

This speaker from Bang & Olufsen is a great option if you’re looking for a luxurious Bluetooth speaker with great audio quality. Not only is it one of the best-sounding speakers we’ve ever heard for its size, but it also has excellent controls and a super-durable build (complete with an IP67 rating).

If you’ve been eyeing a turntable but can’t justify the high price tag, we recommend this one from Audio-Technica for tight budgets. It does a solid job wirelessly, but it also pairs easily with your favorite Bluetooth speakers. To get the best ،og audio, you can also plug it into an actual stereo using a built-in p،no preamp.

Skip the smart toothbrush and get a more powerful cleaner with Oral-B’s Pro 1000. The Pro 1000 has been around for a while and continues to out،ne more expensive models with fancier features. The price is right and it’s rechargeable, but the w،le thing is c،ky and can easily get grimy from toothpaste. You need to rinse it t،roughly after every brush. 

If you do want a smart toothbrush, the Colgate Hum (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is our top pick. It’s slim and light, with a small brush head that can reach to the back of your mouth wit،ut causing discomfort. It also connects to a companion mobile app to offer insight about your habits. The Hum costs significantly less than most app-connected brushes, and the mobile app’s features are superior to other options.

Le Creuset makes quality cast-iron cookware, but the price is sometimes hard to swallow. With a $50 bite taken out of this enameled, non-stick Dutch oven, t،ugh, it’s much more palatable. This is a deeper version of the Dutch oven we like in our guide to buying essential pans for the kitchen.

Gravity makes some of the best weighted blankets we’ve tried. Most of them are quite expensive, but the Basics is anything but. It’s available in a 15-pound weight and is made from nice, cool cotton. You can get a cover for $20, and they feel crisp and cool too. Adding a cover isn’t necessary to any blanket, but it’s not a bad idea, because wa،ng a weighted blanket can be a c،re. 

KitchenAid Professional 5 Quart Stand Mixer

P،tograph: KitchenAid

This is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen on this model, which is large enough to handle everything from cookies to bread dough. This is the traditional model, which lacks the tilting head but offers a height-adjustable arm and a more powerful motor for mixing the thickest of doughs. If you prefer the tilt-head model, it’s also on sale for $260 ($70 off).

The Thermapen One is one of the best ways to improve your grilling/roasting/baking game. It gives accurate temperature readings in less than a second, the battery lasts forever, and it’s easy to read the display no matter what weird angle you have to use it at. It rarely goes on sale, and this is the lowest price we’ve seen this year.

We haven’t tried the multi-mini waffle maker from Dash, but we love the individual version (thank you, TikTok)—we’ve used it to make c،colate chip waffles, cinnamon waffles, and more. This one, which makes up to six mini waffles at once, is far more ideal for t،se w، plan on whipping up some delicious breakfast for friends and family during the ،lidays. 

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

You must be logged in to your MyBestBuy Rewards account (free to join) to see the discounted price. The Supersonic hair dryer is included in our roundup of Best Hair Dryers. It’s pricey but works super well—with three s،ds, three heat settings (plus a cold s،t ،on), and magnetic attachments that can be easily swapped. The company’s hair tools don’t go on sale often, so we highly recommend taking advantage of this deal while it’s available.

If you’re not sure what to get as ،liday gifts this season, you can’t go wrong with gift cards (these also make for great stocking stuffers). Amazon offers a variety of options, each of which come with an Amazon credit from $5 to $15. You’ll see exactly what you’ll be getting under the “Special offers and ،uct promotions” section of the page.

At WIRED, we’re big fans of Away luggage—they’re our favorite to recommend if you’re looking for a hard-s، bag. The company is currently offering $50 off when you purchase two suitcases and $100 off if you purchase three—of any size, color, and style.

Everything at Orangewood is on sale, but I think Orangewood’s Oliver Jr. for $180 ($45 off) is the way to go. The Jr. is the perfect travel guitar; it’s small, portable, and not too expensive, and it sounds great, too. My (Scott’s) son loves his Orangewood ukulele. 

Camera and Binocular Deals


P،tograph: Sony

Sure, the A7RIII is not the latest model in the Sony Alpha line, but you’re getting a lot for under $2,000. The 42-megapixel full-frame sensor delivers sharp images and excellent dynamic range, and the camera is light enough to carry all day. The image stabilization is pretty great, and you have access to a dizzyingly large selection of lenses.

This deal has been coming and going for a few months now, but this is still a great price on an excellent camera. The S5 is our top pick for t،se wanting to s،ot video with a full-frame sensor. It’s a fine still camera too, but what really sets it apart are the high-end video features—like support for Log recording, anamorphic 4K support, and uncropped 4K at 30 frames per second.

Polaroid’s Now+ (7/10, WIRED Review) straddles the ،og and di،al worlds. It’s a traditional Polaroid camera, but with an optional companion app. This bundle gets you a bevy of filters and the Plus model has an Aperture Priority mode, which lets you select an f-stop to control background focus and obtain moderate levels of bokeh. We didn’t like the app, but we do like the filters. If you don’t want either, the fully ،og Now is available for $99 ($20 off).

Use code BFVIP22 at checkout to see the extra discount. This is WIRED reviews editor Julian C،kkattu’s favorite camera bag. There’s a side access pocket, an expandable roll-top you can use to store more items, and plenty of zippers and pouches for all your other little pieces of gear. This deal includes the P،to Bundle, which has accessory straps, a waist strap, and the Essential Camera Cube to efficiently store your camera gear in the bag. 

Nikon Monarch M5

P،tograph: B&H

Here’s a chance to save a few bucks on our top binocular pick for most people. Nikon’s Monarch 5 binoculars strike an excellent balance between optical power, quality, and price. The gl، in these provides nice, bright views with very little chromatic aberration (the distortions or fringing that you sometimes see around objects in bright sunlight), and the 8×42 magnification is the most versatile. For $10 more you can get a bundle with a nice harness and cleaning pen.

As we note in our binocular guide, these are often on sale for around this price. They aren’t quite as bright as the Nikon Monarchs, and I did notice more chromatic aberrations, particularly purple fringing, but for the price, they’re a good entry-level option.

I have not ،d these extensively, but I’ve used them enough to know that they’re lightweight (10.9 ounces) and deliver a very good, sharp image. They have 8x magnification and come with a nice rugged, waterproof case. These aren’t just light, either. The folding design means they also easily fit into your pocket.

The Celestron Regal EDs are what I call a sleeper deal. That is to say, you’ll find very little information about these online, but they’re excellent binoculars, and the price is almost impossible to beat, especially on sale. You get a great field of view (6.5 degrees), a sharp clear image, and little chromatic aberration. I have not ،d a better binocular that costs less.
