When you’re in the middle of a task, there’s nothing more frustrating than suddenly losing your internet connection — take it from somebody who lost their Wi-Fi signal while writing this very sentence. Thankfully, Google’s Nest Wifi Pro is currently on sale in select colors at Amazon and Best Buy, where a single unit is going for an all-time low of $139.99 ($60 off). Other shades are on sale for $20 more, or you can pick up a set of two or three for around $239.99 ($60 off) and $319.99 ($80 off), respectively.  

With its resemblance to a Nest Audio speaker, Google’s mesh router is an attractive gadget that’ll blend in with the rest of your home. At the same time, it’s highly capable, with support for Wi-Fi 6E as well as Thread and Matter. One unit covers up to 2,200 square feet, which is enough for a small apartment — and you can always buy another if you need more coverage. It also offers consistent speeds, even if it doesn’t quite live up to Google’s claimed support for maximum speeds of 2400Mbps on 5GHz and 6GHz. Plus, it helps that it doesn’t come with any subscription fees.

The Nest Wifi Pro is an upgraded version of the standard model, and it’s equipped with Matter and Thread support in addition to Wi-Fi 6E connectivity. 

If you’re in the market for a new tablet, right now you can get the 10th-gen iPad with 64GB of storage for $349 ($100 off) or 256GB for $499 in select colors (also $100 off) at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. That matches its Black Friday all-time low.

At this price, we think the latest iPad is a much more worthwhile purchase. Unlike its predecessor, it offers a large, 10.9-inch screen similar to the iPad Air’s while offering USB-C connectivity. Equipped with the A14 Bionic chip, it’s faster than the Air as well and supports gesture-based controls. It’s a shame it doesn’t support the second-gen Apple Pencil like the iPad Air, but hey — I guess you can’t get everything in life, right?

Apple’s 10th-gen iPad is the spiritual successor to the older ninth-gen model. In exchange for its revised design, landscape-oriented webcam, USB-C port, larger 10.9-inch screen, and faster processor, it ditched the headphone jack and got more expensive.

  • The Amazon Smart Air Quality Monitor is on sale for $54.99 ($15 off) at Amazon, which is only $6 shy of its all-time low. This is a good, budget-friendly solution for monitoring your indoor air, one that’s capable of automatically triggering your smart thermostat or air purifier via Alexa Routines when it senses a drop in quality.

  • Samsung’s 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9ismatching its all-time low of $1,999.99 (about $500 off) at Amazon, Best Buy, and Samsung’s online storefront. Compared to its 2021 predecessor of the same name, the Mini LED display sports an even wider 32:9 aspect ratio along with a higher resolution of 7680 x 2160. Admittedly, we haven’t tested it, but we have reviewed its similar curved predecessor. The width made 3D games look weird and warped but was great for multitasking.
  • The OnePlus Pad is on sale directly from OnePlus for $429.99 ($50 off) with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. While that’s not its all-time low price, it does come with either a OnePlus Stylo stylus or a Folio Case. The snappy, 11.6-inch tablet offers a lot of value for the money, too, with high-end specs like a quad-speaker system and a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz. Read our review.
  • Now through January 5th, you can grab a digital version of Strayfor the PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 from the PlayStation Store for $19.79 ($10 off). The puzzle-based stealth game takes place in a cyberpunk-inspired world teeming with bug-like monsters; however, unlike similar adventure titles, Stray has you taking on the role of a cat.

  • Amazon, Best Buy, and Target are all selling the Fitbit Charge 6 for $129.95 ($30 off), which is one of its better prices to date. Unlike its predecessor, Fitbit’s newer fitness band comes with a haptic side button, support for Google Wallet, and the ability to pair with certain gym equipment over Bluetooth. It also boasts a solid set of both fitness and health-tracking features, rendering it the best Fitbit fitness tracker to date. Read our review.
