The weekend’s best deals: Buy two get one free video games, Razer Blade, Apple, GoPro and more

Ars-Technica

It’s the weekend, and that means it’s time to round up the week’s best deals. Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday are only two weekends away, which means there’s a steady trickle of popular electronics going on sale for year-long low prices. Both Target and Amazon are currently running a “buy two, get one free” deal on over 500 video games and thousands of books. You can peruse the list or easily search it using the landing pages’ dedicated search bars if you’re looking for something specific. The list includes newer games like Resident Evil 4, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, FIFA ’23, Madden ’23, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and older games like those from the Grand Theft Auto franchise, Mario games, and much more.

Among the bigger ticket deals, we have a bunch of Apple devices, including iPads, M1- and M2-powered MacBooks, AirPods Pro (first and second-gen), HomePod Mini, and $200 off Apple’s 5K Studio display ($1,799 $2,000). We reviewed Apple’s 5K display in March, noting that it was one of the few 5K monitors on the market, which largely remains true. That aside, it portrays very pleasing images with great sound to match. It also has Apple’s A13 chip within, meaning it can upgrade to include new features as new macOS versions deploy. The sale applies to the more expensive tilt- and height-adjustable version of the monitor.

A few of our favorite fitness wearables are also on sale for record lows. Garmin’s Fenix ​​7 ($585 $700) is our top pick for the outdoor explorer in our forthcoming guide on the best fitness trackers. We chose the Fenix ​​7 for its robust hardware and similarly replete software. Garmin uses materials like titanium and sapphire to ensure this watch works just as well 100 meters underwater as it does soaking up solar power atop the highest mountains. The bevy of Garmin’s proprietary training metrics, preloaded topographical maps, and wide-ranging activity tracking gives users the most data, and the most useful analysis of any fitness wearable right now.

The Fenix ​​series has a few you can choose from for different needs and all of them are over $100 off right now. If you’re a more casual exerciser than an outdoor expeditionist, Fitbit’s Charge ($100 $120 usecode: ENG50) and Versa 4 ($150 $230 usecode: ENG80) represent two of the best values ​​you can get in the wearable market, particularly at these prices, a record-low for the Versa. Both come with six months of Fitbit’s Premium subscription plan, affording beginners useful tools (including over 200 videos) to start exercising and being more mindful.

Elsewhere around the web, we have a generous discount on GoPro’s Hero 11 camera with a free year of GoPro’s subscription ($350 ($550), Xbox Series S ($250 ($290) matching its record low, iRobot vacuums and mop bundles ($639 $800), 4K TVs, and much more. Check the full curated list below.
