The yellow circle shows the Apple Watch Ultra is in Low Power Mode.

The Memorial Day weekend has brought with it some great Apple Watch deals including being able to buy the Apple Watch Ultra for $749 instead of $799 at Amazon. That’s a pretty hefty price cut on the popular high-end smartwatch and if you’ve been waiting to snap one up, this is an excellent time to do so. We can’t say how long it’ll stay this price but we do know that delivery dates are bound to be pushed back the longer you wait. Don’t delay and hit that buy button.

Why you should buy the Apple Watch Ultra

The Apple Watch Ultra is a truly premium smartwatch. It makes up for any issues or qualms you may have about the Apple Watch Series 8 and adds some great features. Designed to be robust, rugged, and capable of following you on all your adventures, the watch has a 49mm corrosion-resistant titanium case, a larger Digital Crown, and more accessible buttons. It’s also 100m water resistant so it can handle all your diving plans.

One of the best smartwatches when money is no object, we’re huge fans of the Apple Watch Ultra’s customizable action button, which means you gain extensive control over a variety of functions without having to rely on the touchscreen controls.

The Always-On display is Apple’s biggest and brightest yet, being easy to see, even in direct sunlight. It gives you more room to add relevant complications.

As well as that, there are advanced metrics via the Workout app, including Heart Rate Zones and Running Form. You also have a precision, dual-frequency GPS for accuracy, distance, route, and pace calculations. A redesigned Compass app provides all-new views and functionality while you can mark your location with Compass Waypoints. The avid hiker will adore how the Backtrack feature allows you to map where you’ve been so you can easily retrace your steps. The Oceanic+ app also turns your watch into a dive computer too whenever you go exploring the deep sea.

With all the great health sensors and detection elements of the Apple Watch Series 8, the Apple Watch Ultra goes that much further right down to its cellular capabilities that keep you always connected. Usually priced at $799, you can buy the Apple Watch Ultra for $749 at Amazon for a limited time only. You won’t regret it.

With so many great deals on Memorial Day, it's the perfect time to pick up a Microsoft Surface Pro laptop. Not only is it great for general business and school use for productivity, but it's also powerful enough that folks have used it for editing work like music production. As such, it's no surprise that we've put it on both our best tablet deals and best laptop deals lists for its versatility and powerful specifications under the hood. Even slightly older versions, such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 7+, are still relatively powerful, and you can get quite a good deal on them since they're not newly released.

During the current Memorial Day sales, you can grab a Surface Pro 7+ with a typing cover for just $700 at Best Buy, rather than the usual $930 it goes for, a significant $230 discount. That's a great deal for a device with a relatively modern and entry-level desktop CPU, a good amount of RAM, and one of the best touchscreen experiences on the market. It's also quite solidly built and not too heavy, so if you prefer a more handheld and tablet-like experience, a Surface Pro is the way to go.

We don't see significant Apple deals every day. Even Apple products that are years-old pull full price. The best place to look is Amazon, and they have a noteworthy iPad deal happening today. The iPad Air (9th Gen) is $59, down to just $270. The lowest this product has ever gotten at Amazon is $250, so this is a steal. Don't let it pass you buy.

Why You Should Buy the Apple iPad (9th Gen)
In Digital Trend's Apple iPad 9th Gen review, Adam Doud made it clear that while, yes, it's the same iPad we know and love, some of the upgraded features are definitely worthwhile. He praised its great battery life, powerful internals, which offer reliable performance, front-facing camera upgrade, and Apple's amazing software support.
