Apple may have mostly had minor software updates for the iPad during WWDC, but today you can get a hefty deal on the biggest iPad. Amazon sells the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with M2 processor for $999.99 ($99 off) at checkout. It is the lowest price yet for the iPad with a brilliant Mini LED screen that becomes very bright and vividly colorful. While that low price is based on the base 128GB configuration, Amazon also has the 256GB for $1,099.99 and the 512GB for $1,299.99 (both $99 off). All of these discounted prices are reflected when you add the iPad to your cart on Amazon.
While the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is largely a spec-bumped model from the previous generation (and is far from being a cheap tablet), it’s the iPad best equipped to be a full laptop replacement. Yes, you will probably still need additional accessories, such as a Second generation Apple Pencil And Magic keyboard (which makes it even more expensive), but thanks to the M2 processor, it’s quite capable and future-proof. And with apps like Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro now on the iPad, more mobile workflows are possible with this beautiful 12.9-inch Mini LED display. Read our review.
The Oura Ring Generation 3 fitness and sleep tracker is on sale at Best Buy in its slick “horizon” form, a fully round band that doesn’t have the flat hump of other models. You can get your hands on the horizon version of the Oura Ring Gen 3 stealth (matte) black for $409 ($40 off) or within gold for $449 (also $40 off). Yes, these are more expensive than the usual $349 for silver or standard black, but unfortunately it’s quite common to pay more for fancy-looking gold and macho matte black (they’re all made of titanium, by the way).
While the Oura ring isn’t cheap, it’s a very unique wearable. Unlike a smartwatch, you might feel fine wearing it with fancier outfits, and the battery can last up to a week before needing a charge. It’s also great for sleep and recovery tracking, especially since it might be more comfortable to wear a ring to bed than a watch. Read our review.
Now for a more traditional fitness tracker, the Fitbit Sense 2 is on sale for $229 (about $70 off) at Amazon. The Sense 2 has a wealth of features, including exercise tracking and sleep tracking, but one of the things that makes it unique is its stress management. It can detect a stressful response in your body by measuring the level of sweat in your skin and sudden heart rate changes and give you helpful ways to ease a stressful moment, such as a short, guided meditation. It might not be for everyone, but if you like a platform-agnostic smartwatch that can help your mood as well as your fitness then this deal is worth considering. Read our review.
The Sega Genesis Mini 2 is a cute little retro console, complete with modern touches like an HDMI port, and that’s it for now on sale at Amazon for $77.68 ($22.30 off) when you click on the coupon on the page to redeem code 2023SEGAFS. Now this is only sold through Amazon Japan, so unfortunately shipping isn’t free. In fact, shipping on the Genesis Mini 2 usually costs $22.30, so you’re basically getting that for free. I know it’s not ideal, but it’s still as good as you can get on the little Genesis if you live in North America.
What you get with the Genesis Mini 2 is 60 retro games from both the Sega Genesis and the Sega CD. There are Sonic games, a ToeJam & Earl game, Super Street Fighter II The new challengers, Streets of Anger 3even Clay Fighter. Plus, the included controller is the much better six-button version. If you were a Sega kid growing up, this is a great collectible to make a large range of games easier to play rather than resorting to emulators.
