Offers for Labor Day are already appearing on the Internet. Both Ooni and Solo Stove have pre-Christmas sales that bring down the prices of some of their most popular machines, so now is the time to consider a pizza oven or fire pit while you can save some cash. Apple’s base iPad fell to a new all-time low of $280, while the Apple TV 4K is also nearly $60 cheaper. You can still pick up a range of Crucial SSDs and portable drives at some of the lowest prices we’ve seen, and Google’s latest Pixel Buds Pro are cheaper than ever. Here are this week’s best tech deals to get today.
Google Pixelbuds pro
Google’s new Pixel Buds Pro are available for $175, or $25 less than the usual price. This is the first real discount they’ve had since their launch last month. We gave the buds a score of 87 for their deep, punchy bass, solid ANC, and reliable touch controls.

Apple’s entry-level iPad has fallen to a new all-time low of $280. We gave it a score of 86 for its solid performance, great battery life, and upgraded center stage cameras.

Apple TV 4K
The Apple TV 4K is back in stock at Amazon and is priced at $120. While it’s not quite as cheap as last month’s Prime Day ($109), this remains one of the best prices we’ve seen for our favorite high-end set-top box. We gave the device 90 points for its fast performance, support for Dolby Vision and Atmos, HomeKit integration, and much-improved Siri remote.

Apple Watch SE
Some Apple Watch SE models are up to 30 percent cheaper on Amazon. This wearable got an 88 score from us for its solid performance, comfortable design, and full feature set for the price. However, if you want the latest model, you might want to wait a few more weeks as we expect new Apple Watches to be announced at the company’s event on September 7th.

Apple watch series 7
The Product Red version of the Apple Watch Series 7 (45mm) is currently on sale for $320. We gave the wearable a score of 90 for its larger screen, faster charging, and handy watchOS features. However, if you want the latest from Apple, it might be worth waiting until September, when the company has historically announced its latest phones and smartwatches.

We’ve recommended these pizza ovens in outdoor guides in the past because they’re relatively easy to use and produce delicious, bubbly pizzas that are as close to restaurant quality as you’ll get at home.
