Launched on September 2019, the Versa 2 has an impressively long battery life, a user-friendly interface and it works on both iOS and Android. Its numerous watch faces gives you lots of options and it’s much faster than its predecessor, the original Versa.

The JBL Portable Waterproof Speaker Flip 5 is currently available for $70. It’s not exactly swimming season for most of the US anymore, but a portable speaker still works year-round. The speaker comes in multiple colors and a built-in microphone for speakerphone calls.

Amazon’s 4th-gen smart speaker offers improved sound quality and a fresh new design. (Read CNET’s full review here.) You can grab one this holiday season, Black Friday specifically, when it’s down from its original $100. The Echo Dot is compatible with Smart Home Hub and Alexa. The speaker will also be available on Amazon and Best Buy.

Google’s smart home speaker, the Nest Mini is as cute as a button and offers a similar experience to its predecessor, the Home Mini. Its sound quality is better, however, and updates include ultrasound sensing, improved far-field voice detection and a fuller bass sound.

Walk into an Apple Store, and you’ll pay $279 to $309 for an Apple Watch SE, the company’s 2020 midrange model. But Target (and some other retailers) has slashed $49 off that price (along with that of the Series 6).
