Even the Apple AirTag is discounted for Cyber Monday 2022

One of Apple’s most valuable products is the AirTag, especially if you’re very prone to losing things all the time. Luckily, there are a few great Cyber Monday deals, like this one from Walmart, bringing them down to $25 from $30. While that’s not a substantial discount, we don’t often see deals on it, and it makes a big difference if you plan to buy two or three at a time, which some might feel compelled to do given how rare deals on the AirTag are. It’s also a great gift if you buy one for yourself and a friend or family member, and if you order it now, you’ll likely get it before Christmas.

Why you should buy the Apple AirTag

What sets the Apple AirTag apart from other trackers is it can leverage the millions and millions of Apple devices out there to keep track of things almost anywhere in the world. Another is that the AirTag itself is relatively small at 1.25 inches wide, but sadly it doesn’t come with a way to attach it to anything, so you’re almost certainly going to have to spring for an AirTag accessory to keep it in, like the keyring garb that you see in the picture above. So while you can certainly buy Apple’s leather key ring for $35, most folks grab generic ones for much cheaper instead. So even though there are some additional costs, the AirTag is still pretty amazing at being located in pretty much any place, which it accomplishes through Find My Network, which runs on almost all Apple devices out there.

It’s also IP67 rated, and its battery can last over a year without needing changing, which is impressive. That said, given how versatile they are, there are some privacy concerns given how the AirTags work and the fact that they are so small and easy to hide. Luckily, Apple has rolled out a promised AirTag safety update which makes a big difference, so it’s not as bad as it used to be.

While there were some issues surrounding the AirTag in the past, a lot of them have been dealt with, and given how versatile they are, this deal from Walmart bringing them down to $25 makes them a great buy. But, of course, if you aren’t in the Apple ecosystem and don’t have an iPhone, you can check our roundup of the best Bluetooth trackers on the market, as well as our breakdown between the Apple AirTag vs. Tile Tags, the other big player in the market.

For anyone seeking one of the best laptop deals around, you've got some great options available to you right now. Amazon has cut the price of the MacBook Air M1 while Dell has done similar with the Dell XPS 13. If you're trying to decide between macOS or Windows 11, whatever you go for will be a more affordable price than usual. We're here to tell you a little more about both so you can soon figure out what's best for your needs.
Dell XPS 13 -- $599, was $799

We described the Dell XPS 13 as the "true answer to the MacBook Air" thanks to its great design and excellent specs. Dell is one of the best laptop brands around and this system demonstrates why. You get a 12th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory and 256GB of SSD storage. Such specs are just right for being able to work productively on the move or from your home office. There's also an attractive 13.4-inch full HD+ screen with a 1920 x 1200 resolution and 500 nits of brightness. It's Dell's thinnest and lightest 13-inch XPS yet while still offering up to 12 hours of battery life which should suit most people. Other useful features include bigger internal speakers compared to previous models, along with a minimalist design and a dual-sensor camera that makes it easy to log in with Windows Hello compared to usual methods. It's a reliable laptop all around.

Get this Apple Watch for just $129 in the Labor Day sales
A person wears an Apple Watch SE displaying its apps.

Smartwatches have quickly become a very important utility, from helping us interface with our phones without pulling them out all the time or helping us with fitness tracking. If you're in the Apple ecosystem, then you're probably familiar with the high prices many of the newest Apple watches go for. Luckily, Walmart has a great deal on the Apple Watch SE 1, which is still pretty great, and is going for $129, rather than the usual $329, a substantial discount we don't usually see.

Why you should buy the 40mm Apple Watch SE 1
The Apple Watch SE almost needs no introduction, being the first budget-oriented Apple smartwatch on the market, and it was quite a surprise when it originally came out. While it doesn't have all the latest and greatest sensors like Watch Series 8, it has a heart rate monitor that can sense irregular rhythms. It also has fall detection, which makes this a great option if you want to grab this for an elderly relative while being on a tight budget. Workout tracking is, of course, excellent, as you'd expect from Apple, and the included sleep tracker also gives you some nice information, although there's no deep analysis, so don't expect that here.
