Best upcoming holiday deals

While that’s not the absolute lowest price we’ve seen on Beats wireless earbuds this season ($100 for Black Friday), it’s the lowest you’ll find right now. The Beats Studio Buds look a lot like the baseless AirPods that people have been talking about but never really realized – like AirPods anyway. Since they’re geared toward iOS and Android users, they’re missing a few key features on the Apple side of things (no H1 or W1 chip), but they’re small, lightweight earbuds that are comfortable to wear and deliver good sound. They fit securely in most ears, including my own—I run with them without a problem—but others may find a better fit with the wrap-style Powerbeats Pro, which are also on sale at Target for just $30.
The most advanced Apple Watch to date, the Series 7 features a larger screen with thinner bezels, and promises better durability and faster charging (but not better battery life than the Series 6). There are also new color options: blue, green, midnight (black), starlight (golden and silver mix), and product red. While deals on Apple products aren’t exactly rare, they aren’t particularly popular and often sell out very quickly. If you’re hoping to get one of these new smartwatches on sale, we recommend taking action sooner rather than later. Read our Apple Watch Series 7 review.
