As summer starts to come to an end and the first day of school looms just around the corner, back-to-school sales have begun, bringing with them some excellent deals on tech devices and accessories that’ll be useful for students. But even if you’re not returning to class yourself, that doesn’t mean you can’t take full advantage of this week’s deals on Amazon’s Fire Stick 4K, the 5th generation Apple iPad Air, a highly compatible Logitech wireless keyboard, and much more.
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K
$24.99 $49.99 Save $25
The Amazon Fire Stick TV 4K offers a Dolby Vision upgrade and TV controls on the Alexa remote. With 4K streaming, it’s much more future-proof. Get it for half off right now.
With so many streaming services these days, keeping track of them all and remembering which show is on which app may seem like an impossible task at times. That’s the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K’s time to shine, especially if you have a Fire TV at home. That said, you don’t need one, or even a smart TV, in order to take advantage of this handy little device; as long as your TV has an HDMI port and can play either HD or 4K content, you’re all set.
One of our favorite streaming devices of 2023, this version of the fire stick is, as its name implies, 4K capable as well as Dolby Vision, HDR, and HDR10+ and compatible, and provides you with access to all the major streaming services in one convenient spot, from Hulu to Netflix to Disney+ and beyond. It’s especially useful for accessing Amazon Prime Video, though a Prime account isn’t required to use it. You can even use it to access and scroll through regular live TV as well.
Besides the fire stick itself, you’ll receive a remote that’s voice-activated, so you don’t have to press any buttons or spend extra minutes digging through your streaming app while looking for the show or movie you want to watch, plus an HDMI extender, USB cable, power adapter, and three AAA batteries. Using the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is a cinch, too— all you have to do is make sure your television is connected to the internet, stick the Fire Stick directly into one of its HDMI ports, plug the Fire Stick into a wall outlet, and you’ll instantly have access to millions of television shows and movies.
Apple iPad Air (5th Generation): with M1 chip, 10.9-inch Liquid Retina Display, 64GB, Wi-Fi 6, 12MP front/12MP Back Camera, Touch ID, All-Day Battery Life – Purple
$499.99 $599 Save $99.01
The iPad Air provides a great mix of features, expandability, and modern design. Get it while it’s almost $100 off.
If you’re in the market for a new tablet, don’t miss out on this chance to get the Apple iPad Air (5th Gen), one of the top iPads of 2023, for a reduced price.
The iPad Air range uses the Apple M1 desktop chip, an 8-core GPU that’s ideal for multitasking and running multiple apps at once, whether they be for gaming, drawing, video editing, or 3D modeling. The 12MP front-facing camera not only allows you to take high-quality photos and videos, but its extra width makes it ideal for video calls and conferences.
The 10.9-inch screen deftly threads the needle of being small enough for convenient portability yet large enough to be easy to read on or watch videos. Like more modern MacBooks, this tablet has Touch ID, so you can unlock it with just the touch of your finger. And if you own Apple’s latest accessories, namely the second-generation Apple Pencil and Apple’s flagship Magic Keyboard, Apple iPad Air (5th Gen) is compatible with them, further diversifying your drawing, gaming, or streaming experiences.
Logitech K480 wireless keyboard
$29.99 $49.99 Save $20
Compatible with almost every PC, tablet, and smartphone on the market, this Logitech wireless keyboard can connect to three different devices at once via Bluetooth. If you want it for your setup, you can get it for a discounted price today.
Logitech is arguably best known for its keyboards, and if you’re looking to buy a smart, comfortable, spill-resistant keyboard specifically for your tablet, you can’t go wrong with the Logitech K480 Wireless Keyboard.
While it’s one of our favorite tablet keyboards of 2023, this keyboard is hardly limited to use with tablets; it’s also capable of pairing with laptops and even smartphones via Bluetooth. It’s compatible with most operating systems, from Windows 7/8/10 to Mac OS X or later, Chrome OS to iOS (from iPhone 5 and up), Android tablets to smartphones using 3.2 or later. If you want, you’re even able to connect it to up to three different devices at a time. The handy dial at the top of the keyboard allows you to switch between the three synced devices just by turning it.
Also noteworthy about this wireless keyboard is its built-in 10-inch cradle, where you can stick or prop up your tablet or your smartphone, or both at the same time. Since it’s wireless, the Logitech K480 Wireless Keyboard is powered by two AAA batteries, which come included and pre-installed with your purchase, but you have the option to use rechargeable batteries if you want.
Google Pixel Buds A Series
$59 $99 Save $40
The Google Pixel Buds are another fabulous pair of wireless headphones. Their Adaptive Sound technology, flush-to-ear fit, and water resistance are just some of the great features you can enjoy.
Most of us own headphones or earbuds for listening to our favorite music or podcast to help with concentration during work, block out ambient noise when traveling, or for motivation during exercise. If the time has come for you to buy a new pair of earbuds, the Google Pixel Buds are well worth a look—especially now, when they’re available for the same low price that they were on this year’s Prime Day.
Water-resistant and featuring a flush-to-ear design, you won’t have to worry about these earbuds slipping out of your ears or getting ruined when exposed to sweat or sudden rainfall. The soft-fit ear tips, the pieces that actually nestle into your ear, come in three different sizes so you can fit these earbuds to your ears more comfortably. And their Adaptive Sound feature automatically adjusts the volume for you as the noise levels in your environment change or you move into a noisier or quieter space.
Like any good earbuds, these come with their own case/charger, so you won’t have to buy one separately in order to keep them charged. They should give you about five hours of nonstop listening on a single charge. The Google Pixel Buds are compatible with not only the Google Pixel phone but Android and iOS, plus most other devices that are Bluetooth 4.0 compatible.
GoPro Hero 11 Black
$399 $499 Save $100
Take high resolution photos and videos anywhere, anytime, rain or shine, with this waterproof GoPro Hero 11 camera.
If you’re looking to photograph action or high-motion shots and video clips, you’ll need a specialty camera specifically designed to capture these moments to prevent blurry pictures, and the GoPro Hero 11 is one of the best action cameras available on the market today.
Durable and water-resistant with a water-repelling lens that reduces flare, making it equally suitable for photographs on both land and water, this action camera provides 5.3K video at 60 frames per second and photo resolution up to 27MP, as well as a new-and-improved sensor for superior vertical and square video crops alike. It also offers HyperSmooth 5.0 stabilization and the ability to lock onto the horizon, both extremely handy features for capturing crisp images and videos.
This action camera is also notable for its wider field of view compared to previous models, allowing you to capture more of the background in your shots than ever before. Videos can be played back at up to 8x slow-motion, so you’ll be better able to catch details that you might have otherwise missed at full speed or in real time. And not only do you receive the GoPro Hero 11 itself with your purchase, but an Enduro battery, a carrying case, a curved adhesive mount, a mounting buckle and thumbscrew, plus a USB-C Cable, giving you even better bang for your buck.
Back-to-school shopping is in full swing, which means there are plenty of great sales on all kinds of items—tech devices, gear, and accessories included. But you don’t have to be a student to take advantage of this week’s deals on TOZO wireless earbuds, a flash drive or SSD from Samsung, a HUANUO dual monitor stand, and much, much more.
