Finding the right gear to work out in is challenging enough, but for cyclists it can be even harder. A decent pair of sunglasses will be necessary, but they can bump against earbuds if you want to listen to music while you ride. The Bose Frames Tempo sunglasses place impressively effective speakers against your temples, giving you the best of both gadgets in one.
A good pair of headphones has clear audio quality, but a truly great pair of earbuds can do the same with a stylish flourish. These Bang & Olufsen buds made our list of the Best Workout Earbuds not only for having water resistance, long battery life, and a selection of listening profiles, but for looking pretty darn good while doing so. This price is by far the lowest we’ve tracked for them.
JBL makes pretty solid audio equipment in general, and these earbuds offer up to 21 hours of battery life, active noise cancellation, and wireless charging for a relatively affordable $75. This historic low price has been around since late October.
The Fujifilm X-T4 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) provides excellent in-body image stabilization, convenient hybrid photo-video shooting modes, and decent battery life, even managing to squeeze out two full hours while shooting 4K video.
This mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera is capable of unlimited 4K recording in a variety of modes, including up to 60 frames per second under certain settings, and can even wirelessly livestream footage. If you’re looking for a DSLR that can double as a video production camera, this one’s a great find.
For the streamers, vloggers, and creators just starting out on their journey, the Sony ZV-1 is a solid pick when you’re ready to upgrade from your phone. It has a flip-out 3-inch screen, convenient autofocus, and even a toggle to enable an easy bokeh background. It might not give you the control of a higher end DSLR or mirrorless, but its simplicity can help make lower-budget productions go much more smoothly.
Laptop, PC, and Tablet Deals
Apple’s new series of M1 processors offer a huge leap in performance over past generations of Intel processors. The first-generation M1 MacBook Air would still be a solid deal with no discount at all, but at this price it’s even better.
The Chromebook Flex 5i is one of our favorite Chromebooks, but if you’re trying to stick to a budget, the cheaper Flex 5 (without the “i”) is a great alternative, especially when the price is this low. The specs are on the light end, with a 10th-generation Intel Core i3 chip and 4 gigabytes of RAM. It might not handle heavy-duty tasks, but it’s plenty fine for homework and browsing the web.
This lightweight Acer laptop is one of our favorites. It packs 16 gigabytes of RAM, an 11th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, and a 1-terabyte solid-state drive, which makes it powerful enough to handle most tasks you could throw at it. It also comes with a bevy of ports, including HDMI, USB-A, and a Thunderbolt-4-capable USB-C port that can double as a charging port. There’s even a headphone jack for the cool, attractive people who are back on the wired headphone train.
Sometimes all you need from a mouse is reliability. The Logitech G305 provides that. Reviews editor Julian Chokkattu has used this mouse for over two years with no issues. It includes the required single AA battery; even with heavy use you’ll likely only need to replace it once every few months at most. This is a fantastic work-from-home companion down to the lowest price we’ve tracked.
We liked the Razer Kiyo Pro, which skips a ring light in favor of software-based low-light compensation, in our webcam tests. The only problem is that it was a touch overpriced. Right now, that’s less of a problem with the webcam down to a mere $100—its best deal yet.
It never hurts to make sure your files are backed up. If you have a lot of files that you can’t afford to lose, there’s hardly a better option to create a backup than this positively massive 18-terabyte external drive from Western Digital. It’s got more than enough space to keep even large video collections safe for the long term.
