These are the best Memorial Day tech deals so far

Memorial Day weekend hasn’t arrived yet, but we’ve already seen a slew of great sales with enough deals to make your head spin. From tech to outdoor gear, the 2020 Memorial Day sales have something for just about everyone, but what we’re always the most excited about is tech. If you are too, then we’ve rounded up five of our favorite Memorial Day tech deals out of everything that we’ve seen so far.

Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm, GPS) — $179, was $199

If you’re in the market for an Apple Watch and are on a budget (or you just don’t want to shell out $400+ for the Series 5), the Apple Watch Series 3 is the one to buy. Even if it lacks some of the bells and whistles found on the newer models, the Series 3 still features all of Apple’s signature polish and build quality, and it also doubles as one of the best fitness trackers you can buy thanks to a full set of health and activity-tracking functions. At $179 after a $20 discount, the Apple Watch Series 3 is one of the best Memorial Day tech deals we’ve seen so far.

Apple AirPods Pro — $220, was $250

Despite a bunch of competition in the true wireless earbud market, the AirPods still reign supreme — especially if you’re an iPhone user. Apple made these earbuds even better with the AirPods Pro, which deliver fantastic sound, great noise cancellation, in-ear comfort, and ease of use. They also come standard with a wireless charging case. These premium earbuds are certainly pricey, but this Memorial Day deal lets you score a pair for $220 and save $30.

Arlo Pro 2 Home Security Camera System — $259, was $420

Security is one area where smart home tech makes a lot of sense, and the Arlo Pro  2camera system is a perfect example. This two-cam bundle installs in minutes and makes it easy to monitor your property both inside and out (they’re weather-proof, so you’re good to go if you want to set them up outdoors), and the cameras even have night vision capabilities and two-way audio. The Arlo Pro easily integrates with your home wireless network and features an alarm siren as well. This package is on sale right now for $259 for Memorial Day, saving you a whopping $161.

Apple iPad 10.2 — $399, was $429

All the iPads are great, but the standard model is still our favorite. The 2019 refresh was a worthy update, too, packing a gorgeous 10.2-inch display (a half-inch upgrade over the previous model thanks to trimmed-down bezels) and offering great performance for just about anything you’d want to do on a tablet. This new update also comes with a Smart Connector, meaning you can finally use it with an Apple Smart Keyboard. That’s a lot of capability for the cheapest member of the iPad family, and the 128GB model is on sale right now for as low as $399.

Dell XPS 13 — $735, was $850

We’ll just say it: The Dell XPS 13 might be our favorite laptop of all time. This 2019 touchscreen model is nearly perfect: It comes loaded with a 10th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU, 4GB RAM, and a 128GB SSD — perfectly respectable hardware for a modern work machine — and features a gorgeous 13.3-inch InfitityEdge touch display, which is an ideal size for portability and utility. The 2019 Dell XPS would normally set you back $850, but you can grab it for $735 right now with the checkout code 50OFF699.

Today is the final day of Amazon's Prime Early Access Sale, so if there's any Prime Day deals you want, you should nab them right now. That's right, now before they're all gone. If you’re in the market for an Apple Watch or any of the best fitness trackers, Amazon probably has a steep discount or two just for you. The event runs for the next two days until October 12, and Amazon is promising huge discounts. With the Apple Watch at the top of the wearables list for many shoppers, it will be a popular device to keep an eye on.

The Prime Day Apple deals earlier in 2022 included discounts on the popular Apple Watch SE, and any deals during the last day of the Prime Early Access Sale are expected to compete with the discounts we've seen previously. Apple has even released the Apple Watch Series 8 in the time since Prime Day, and its presence in the Apple Watch lineup could mean discounts for other models. Of course, the best Apple Watch deals you can shop today have already dropped, so read on for more details on those, and how best to navigate this event with Black Friday around the corner.

With Prime Day fully upon us, we're seeing a lot of great deals on Apple's products, from the AirPods to the excellent Apple Macbook Air, to the point where we might as well call it Apple Prime Day deals with what we're seeing. Of course, there are a lot of other great Prime Day deals to check out if you aren't specifically tied to Apple's ecosystem, especially since you might find a somewhat better deal.
Apple AirPods -- $90, was $159

While the Apple AirPods 2nd generation is now considered entry-level compared to other AirPods, they're still a force to be reconned with at only half the price. One of the most important things about any headphones is the sound, and the AirPods 2nd gen is a bit more smoothed out so that it doesn't offend anybody. That means that instruments are smooth, the treble is clear though it lacks presence, and the bass is not too bad, although not at the level of earphones at double the cost. That's to say that altogether, the audio quality isn't bad, and when you consider the roughly five-hour battery life of the AirPods with up to 24 hours when you include the case, they're a surprisingly good deal. On the other hand, it's worth checking the comparison between the Apple AirPods Pro 2 vs. AirPods Pro to see if you're OK with going with the lower generation.
