Normally $50, you can pick up the Amazon Echo Auto for just $15 on Amazon today. That’s an impressive savings of $35. The Echo Auto brings Alexa to your car, so you can ask Alexa to play your favorite road trip tracks, get the news, make calls, set reminders, and much more. It comes with a handy vent mount and connects to the Alex app to play sound through your car speakers or your phone’s Bluetooth connection — but it doesn’t work with all cars and phones, so check the compatibility list on the product page before purchasing this deal. Best of all, you won’t have to shout, as the Echo Auto has eight mics and uses far-field technology, so it can hear you even with the A/C cranked up full on a busy road.

Available in Charcoal, Glacier White, or Twilight Blue, the Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) boasts a new spherical design that looks great in any home. It doesn’t just look great though, it’s small but mighty, providing impressive sound that easily rivals larger speakers — and Alexa is also on hand to do your bidding. Buy a few for your house and you can instantly drop in on other rooms that have Echo devices.

It even tracks your sleep, analyzes your mood via Tone Voice analysis, tracks body fat, and gives you points for every minute you’re active. The battery lasts up to a week with normal usage and is fully charged in just over an hour. On the downside, there’s no GPS, privacy is a concern with some features, and the lack of a screen may be a dealbreaker for some.
