The week is almost over, but there are still plenty of offers to discover. Apple’s 512GB MacBook Air M2 has hit a new price low, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is down to just $250, you can buy an Xbox controller from $45 and Lenovo’s Smart Clock Essential with Alexa is at an all-time low of just $35. Here are this week’s best tech deals to get today.
Macbook Air M2
The MacBook Air M2 with 512GB of storage costs $150 and is currently down to $1,150, a new low. We gave the updated laptop a score of 96 for its excellent performance, great display, and ultra-thin design. If you don’t need all that storage, the 256GB model is also available for $1,050.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5
If you’ve got your eye on Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch 5 but have been waiting for a deal, one has already arrived. Amazon’s Woot portal sells the 40mm model in multiple colors (gray, pink gold, and silver) for $250, a savings of $30, or 11 percent, over the regular price. We gave the Galaxy Watch 5 a score of 85 in our review, praising the design, build, and extensive tracking capabilities, with the biggest downside being the battery life.

Xbox Core Wireless Controller
Amazon is selling the Xbox Core Wireless Controller at up to 26 percent off. The white model is the cheapest of the bunch at $45 (usually $60), but you’ll also find significant savings on the blue, red, and Electric Volt (read: neon green) variants. If you own an Xbox Series X or Series S, you know what to expect. The Core Wireless Controller largely features Microsoft’s years-long layout, only with an Elite-style circular d-pad, Share button, and better grip.

Lenovo Smart Clock Essential with Alexa
If you want to add some digital smarts to your bedroom without buying a device with a camera, smart watches are the way to go. One of the better options is the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential with Alexa currently on sale. Amazon has discounted the device by 50 percent, so it currently costs $35. We’ve seen the Smart Clock Essential come up for sale a lot in the past. However, $35 is an all-time low for the device.

Samsung T7 shield
The 1TB model of the Samsung T7 Shield SSD is still on sale for $100, which is pretty much the best we’ve seen. This rugged drive has a rugged exterior that can survive drops from nearly 3 feet, as well as an IP65 rating for dust and water resistance. It also has the same read/write speeds as the other T7 models and works with a range of devices including PC, Mac, Android and even some gaming consoles.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
Another holdover from last week, Samsung’s Z Flip 4 has a $100 discount, so you can pick it up for just $900. This foldable device was launched just a few weeks ago, and we gave it a score of 86 in our review, mainly because of its still-innovative form factor, improved battery life, and useful speakerphone.

HBO Max has reduced its annual plan, so you can save 30 percent if you sign up and pay a year in advance. If you can handle ads, the service costs $70 for 12 months, less than the usual $100. For an ad-free experience, you pay $105, which is $45 off the usual price.
