Amazon’s Prime Day sale gets you this Android tablet for $40
amazon fire 7 tablet deal october 2023  2022 large

If you like to read while you travel but don't necessarily want to buy a Kindle, the Amazon Fire 7 is a great option, especially with the big Prime Day deal that's brought its price down to $40 from $60. Not only that, but you essentially get a fully-fledged tablet, so you can watch shows or check your social media while not worrying about breaking or damaging a high-end tablet.

Why you should buy this Amazon Fire 7 tablet
While Amazon Fire 7 comes with FireOS as an operating system, it's essentially a reskinned version of Android, so you're getting the Android experience with an Amazon flavor to it. That means that you get quick access to Amazon's ecosystem, such as Alexa, and it is great if you're already familiar with it. That doesn't mean you don't get access to a full suite of apps, and even though you can't access Google Play on this Fire 7 Tablet, you still get all the main apps you expect, from Instagram to Zoom. So, unless you have a very specific app need, you should be absolutely fine!

If you've always wanted to buy an Apple Watch but you're hoping to get one with a discount, then you shouldn't miss the return of Amazon's Prime Day deals for Prime Big Deal Days 2023. Among the available offers are the 40mm, GPS model of the second-generation Apple Watch SE for just $199, following a $50 discount on its original price of $249. You're going to have to hurry if you want to pocket the savings though, because we don't expect stocks to last until the end of the sale.

Why you should buy the Apple Watch SE (2022)
The Apple Watch series are among the best fitness watches for men, and that doesn't change with the second-generation Apple Watch SE despite being the more affordable version of Apple's wearable devices. It still offers comprehensive fitness tracking features that will give you valuable insights into your health, and there are also safety features such as Crash Detection, Fall Detection, and Emergency SOS that will alert the authorities and your loved ones if you find yourself in an accident. The smartwatch is also swimproof with a water resistance of 50 meters, so you can take it into the water, and it's also become a must-have for hiking after recent updates.

If you've been paying attention to Amazon recently, you might have realized that there's a big Prime Day sales event going on. In fact, there's everything from Lego set deals to TV deals you can take advantage of, and much more besides. Luckily, another thing that's gone on sale is something we find very convenient: robot vacuums. While they tend to be quite expensive, especially if you opt for the fancier self-emptying kind, the Prime Day sales event has seen a lot of great deals across the board and, as you'll see below, you can even get a robot vacuum for as cheap as $99.
Ionvac SmartClean 2000 -- $99, was $275

If you want to dip your toes into the world of robot vacuums, this Ionvac is a great choice when you consider that it costs less than $100. It has a powerful 2000Pa of suction force and is just as suited to hard floors as it is to carpets, which is nice to see at this price point. We also like that you can connect to it with Wi-Fi and control it that way, as well as set it up to function in one of four different modes; Ionvac even throws in a remote if you'd rather control it that way.
