Best Cyber Monday Deal? This amazing Ultimate Ears Bluetooth speaker is $125 off

There have been tons of steep discounts on portable speakers for Cyber Week, but Target’s Cyber Monday sale might feature one of the best deals this Cyber Monday. Period. The Ultimate Ears Megablast is usually $250, but Target chops its sticker price perfectly in half to bring it down to $125 (Don’t worry – the sale price will show up when you place the product in your cart.)

As you’d surmise from the name, Megablast is the biggest speaker in the Ultimate Ears ranks. You’ll understand why when you hear what comes out of its total of six drivers. There are two 25mm tweeters to handle work on the high end, another two massive 55mm active drivers to fill out most of the spectrum, and dual 50mm passive radiators keep it all tight. Ultimate Ears says it can reach volume levels up to 93 dB, which can absolutely leave a small room vibrating.

As with all Ultimate Ears products, the Megablast is built to take some abuse, with a shock-resistant design and IP67 watertight seal keeping it safe in all sorts of scenarios. The large size also contributes to its 16-hour battery life, which is above average for the power it boasts. To charge, just drop the Megablast on the included cradle.

Interestingly, there’s both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support. Not only can you connect your smartphone to play music, but you can use it on a standalone basis with a bevy of popular music streaming services. That wireless cocktail supports multi-speaker mode, but sadly only if you are using another Megablast. The speaker also supports Alexa, so you can control your music, check weather and messages, and operate your smart home using the integrated far-field microphone.

Should you buy the Ultimate Ears Megablast?

We’re constantly recommending Ultimate Ears products among the best Bluetooth speakers — most often a Wonderboom for its balance and value — but the Megablast is an absolute steal with this Cyber Monday discount. The UE Blast offers similar functionality, but with a weaker soundstage, the Megaboom 3 has decent sound without the Blast’s smarts, and the Wonderboom 2 offers wireless sound in a smaller body. Available in Black and Red, Target likely won’t have these so cheap for long, so don’t hesitate to grab one if you’ve been searching for room-filling sound in a portable package.

Best Buy has the lowest price on the Apple Watch Series 5 for Cyber Week
apple watch stroke study series 5 ecg

As big smartwatch brands like Samsung and Apple continue to release new and improved watches year after year, many of the last-gen models start to see some enormous price cuts during the holiday season. Now that Cyber Week is coming to an end, most of those top sales on older smartwatches have disappeared into thin air. Fortunately, Best Buy is still offering discounts on the Apple Watch Series 5
for its latest Cyber Week sale. This is the lowest price we've found anywhere online today for this watch, but we've also found a discount on the latest iPad and MacBook Air as well if you're looking for more Apple tech.

We gave the Apple Watch Series 5 an almost perfect review, and it's not hard to see why once you have it on your wrist and connected to your phone. Its stylish design, always-on display, and fitness features make the best smartwatch to buy in 2019. If you're already a proud owner of an iPhone or a pair of Apple Airpods, then the latest WatchOS device is the next logical step for you. As far as we can tell, Best Buy is one of the only online retailers still offering a sale on its stock with a discounted price of just $384 right now.
