iRobot Roomba i3+

(Image credit: iRobot)

What’s better than a robot vacuum that cleans your floors for you? A robot vac that empties itself when it’s done. That’s exactly what the Roomba i3+ can do, and iRobot says this device can empty itself for up to 60 days.

Right now Amazon has the Roomba i3+ on sale for $399 which is $200 off the regular price. This robot vacuum uses straight line navigation to clean in straight rows, and it’s smart enough to learn your habits and routines so it doesn’t get in your way. Or you can just set this Roomba to clean while you’re away.

Here’s another perk. You can use Alexa or Google Assistant to start this robot vac on its way with just the sound of your voice.

Samsung Chromebook 4+ deal

I’m going to tell you a little secret. $99 Black Friday Chromebook deals are great for kids or anyone with awesome vision, but their 11-inch displays are not so great for adults looking to use a Chromebook as their primary PC. I bought my mom a 15-inch Chromebook a few years ago and she loves it.

If you want a big-screen Chromebook for less, right now Amazon has the Samsung Chromebook 4+ for $263.49, which is $86 off the regular price. The 15.6-inch display on this Amazon Black Friday deal provides a full HD picture, and the Intel Celeron processor, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage provide everything you need for getting online.

There’s a 4GB version that’s even cheaper, but I’d go with 6GB so they can keep more tabs open without getting bogged down. And with a design that’s under 3 pounds, it’s easy to take this Chromebook from room to room.

(Image credit: Amazon/Eero)

One of the worst things about working from home can be Wi-Fi dead zones, especially the further away you get from your router. The eero 6 dual-band mesh Wi-Fi 6 router is designed to fill your entire abode with a strong Wi-Fi signal, thanks to eero’s mesh Wi-Fi technology.

This system, which includes a router and extender, is rated to cover up to 3,000 square feet with speeds up to 500 Mbps. Plus, it supports up to 75 devices, so your network should not get bogged down as more of your family connects.

Bonus: the eero 6 doubles as a Zigbee smart home hub, which makes it easier to control compatible devices via Alexa.

Blue Yeti Nano mic Black Friday deal

(Image credit: Blue)

One of the best things I bought during the pandemic was a Blue Yeti microphone. I sound great on conference calls without having to wear a headset and I also use it to record voice-overs for videos, like this one for our iPhone 13 Pro Max review

In other words, you don’t have to be a podcaster or streamer to appreciate a good mic, and right now Amazon has the Blue Yeti Nano on sale for $79.99, which is 20% off the regular price.

This thing packs two custom mic capsules to give your voice more depth and detail, and it has a compact design that will fit right in with your laptop, complete with onboard controls for volume, mic mute and pickup pattern.

Black Friday is great for Black Friday TV deals for the ultimate in 4K eye candy, but your ears deserve an upgrade, too. The TCL Alto 6 2.0 soundbar is just $66.79 right now, which is $13 off. While it’s not a huge discount, this is a great low price for a soundbar that has built-in Bluetooth.

The TCL Alto 6 2.0 is rated for 120 watts of power and measures 31.5 inches in length, so it should easily fit under most TVs. This soundbar supports Dolby Digital for the best possible sound quality, and you can take your pick from multiple sound modes for the best experience, including movies, music and TV.

Fitbit Black Friday deals

Right now Amazon is taking up to 40% off Fitbit fitness trackers and smart watches, but there’s one sale that really stands out to us. The Fitbit Sense smartwatch is on sale for $199, which is $100 off the regular price. 

In our Fitbit Sense review, we said that this smartwatch “gives you a very comprehensive look at your overall health.” We also like its attractive design, long battery life and robust fitness and health features. This watch packs an ECG sensor, blood oxygen reading and even the ability to measure your stress (via an EDA scan) along with your skin temperature.

The built-in GPS works well, and there’s sleep tracking, too. Plus, with Fitbit Premium ($9.99 a month), you can access lots of workouts that range in 3 minutes to 30 minutes to keep you motivated.

(Image credit: Tom’s Guide)

Yes, I know, $300 off for this premium flagship phone is still pricey. But with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 you’re getting a phone and tablet in one. This best foldable phone has a 6.2-inch cover display and a ginormous 7.6-inch 120Hz display on the inside that will upgrade your work and play.

You’ll love playing games and watching your favorite shows on the Galaxy Z Fold 3, and you can run up to three apps at once on the screen for the ultimate in multitasking. The iPhone 13 can’t do that. In our Galaxy Z Fold 3 review, we also praised the improved durable design and S Pen support.

While the battery life could be better, overall the Z Fold 3 is a fantastic Amazon Black Friday deal.

Amazon Smart Soap Dispenser

Have you ever thought about how dirty your soap dispenser gets? Think about it. It’s the first thing people touch after using the bathroom, which makes you wonder if there’s a zero-touch solution for home. There is, and it’s on sale now. 

The Amazon Smart Soap Dispenser is now $37.99, which is 31% off the regular price. The dispenser gets to work automatically when you put your hands underneath, and there’s even a 20-second timer that lights up, which is especially handy for kids.

Logitech C922x

I probably don’t need to tell you that most laptop webcams are terrible, and yet most of us still put up with crappy image quality. With the Logitech C922x, you don’t have to settle. This webcam delivers a sharp 1080p picture, and right now it’s 25% off.

The fact is that even 1080p laptop webcams aren’t that great because there’s only so much room for the sensor at the top of the display. The Logitech C922x gives you a full HD glass lens along with autofocus, and there’s 2 built-in mics for capturing your voice. You will look better and sound better during video calls.

Whether you’re shopping for someone else or yourself, noise-cancelling headphones don’t get any better than the Sony WH-1000XM4. In fact, these Sony headphones are the best noise cancelling headphones overall based on our testing. 

Here’s what we said in our Sony WH-10000XM4 review: “These headphones sound amazing, noise cancellation is right up there with Bose, and the extensive feature set offers so much playability across multiple media formats and platforms.”

Add in an excellent 30 hours of battery life and smart controls and you have a winner. Especially at just $248, which is $101 off right now.

Ring Video Doorbell Wired

(Image credit: Tom’s Guide)

The Ring Video Doorbell Wired is the ideal entry point for anyone looking to upgrade their doorbell to something a little more modern. Because of its more budget-friendly price some sacrifices have been made in the feature department, the need to purchase a Ring Chime in order to hear a ring is probably the biggest. Nevertheless, it still thoroughly earns its spot on our best video doorbell roundup.

In our Ring Video Doorbell Wired review, we praised the device’s compact design, decent 1080p video quality and comprehensive companion app that makes using it a breeze. For those looking for an inexpensive wired doorbell for less than $100, you can’t do better than the Ring Video Doorbell Wired.
