Amazon Prime Day (2022): The best tech deals I can find

There's a *lot* of deals out there. Here's a roundup of some of the best that I think you should know about.

Happy Prime Day, people!

Today kicks off Amazon’s annual two-day shopping event, Prime Day, which basically serves as the Black Friday to July’s Christmas (bad analogy, I know). There are tens of thousands of products that’ll be discounted on the retailer’s website today, but just sifting through them makes it hard to find the best deals.

At least when it comes to tech, I’ve got you covered. Here’s some of the best tech deals I’ve been able to find.

Right now, you can get the hybrid smartwatch with all its fitness-tracking fixings for $209.95, $90 less than its original $299.95 asking price. That’s for the 42mm model, by the way – the 38mm is even cheaper at $195.95, $84 less than the $279.95 its normally priced at.

Anker 747 25,600mAh Power Bank – $116.99 ($63 off)

As is normal for major savings events, you can get an Echo Dot for exceptionally cheap. The latest 4th Gen model is on sale for $19.99, down from $49.99. If you want to add Alexa to another room or wanna get a friend’s smart home started, this is a great deal.

Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) – $34.99 ($50 off)

Amazon’s Echo show 5 is taking a hefty discount to $34.99, down from $84.99.
