The weekend's best deals: Pixel 6 Pro, Beats earbuds, Fitbit trackers, and more


It’s the weekend, which means it’s time for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the best tech deals from around the web is headlined by a number of we saw discounts during Amazon’s Prime Day sale that are still available.

Google’s Pixel 6 Pro phone, for one, is still down to $699. That’s $200 off Google’s MSRP and matches the lowest price we’ve tracked for what we consider the best Android phone you can buy right now. More budget-conscious buyers should note Pixel 6a is just around the corner and will deliver the same clean software and fast Google Tensor SoC as its siblings for $449. For those who want more power, though, the 6 Pro will still offer a larger display (6.7 inches, instead of 6a’s 6.1-inch screen), a higher refresh rate (120 Hz instead of 60 Hz), more RAM (12GB instead of 6GB), and a bigger battery (5,000 mAh instead of 4,410 mAh), among other upgrades. Unfortunately, the deal that brought the standard Pixel 6 down to $499 earlier this week is no longer available.

Beyond that, other highlights include the Beats Fit Pro discounted at $160; that remains the lowest price to date for a set of true wireless earphones we recommend to those who want a more gym-friendly take on Apple’s AirPods Pro. Anker’s Soundcore Motion+, a powerful and waterproof Bluetooth speaker we likerepresents a good value at its current price of $80. And Jaipura quick and accessible card-based game we highlight in our list of the best two-player board gamesis still at the lowest price we’ve seen this year.

There are several more leftover Prime Day deals on gadgets we recommend below, with lower-than-usual prices on Google’s Chromecast with Google TVSamsung’s Evo Select microSD card, and HyperX’s Cloud Alpha gaming headset, among others. We also have a few new discounts of note on Fitbit’s Inspire 2 (which will be a budget pick in our forthcoming guide to the best fitness trackers), Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro, and various video games. You can find our full curated list of deals below.
