It’s time for another Dealmaster! Today’s roundup of the best tech deals we can find on the web includes the entry-level Apple Watch SE, which is down to $229. We’ve seen this price before, but it’s still $50 off the MSRP from Apple, about $30 off the regular SE price, and just $10 above the lowest price we tracked. While the high-end Apple Watch Series 7 remains the top pick in our guide to the best smartwatches, the SE is a solid budget alternative. In comparison, it lacks an always-on (and slightly larger) screen, charges a bit slower, and misses more advanced health tracking features like blood oxygen monitoring and ECG functionality. But the experience is pretty much the same other than that, with the same powerful app library, comparable design, and most of the same basic health monitoring tools for sleep and exercise, all at a much lower cost. It’s still only for iPhone users, but if you’re thinking of making this the year you pick a smartwatch, this deal offers good value.

Elsewhere, a Nintendo Switch Online bundle we introduced last week, which combines a recommended 128GB microSD card with a 12-month Switch Online family membership, is still available, as is most of the Switch game deals we’ve highlighted from Nintendo sales. for the new year. We’ve also found lower-than-usual prices on Tribit’s XSound Go, a low-cost Bluetooth speaker we’ve praised in previous buying guides, and Samsung’s T7, a portable SSD hard drive we liked. We also have deals curated on Apple’s Mac Mini, iPhone 13 screen protectors, USB-C chargers, and more. Take a look at the full list below.
