Punxsutawney Phil didn’t catch his shadow this morning, which indicates spring is perhaps near. Ahead of winter’s end, Amazon has discounts available for Apple Watch Ultra 2 deals, priced at $738. Also, Beats Studio Buds+ with a new see-through design is available for $130, and CalDigit’s TS3 Plus Thunderbolt 3 dock is on sale for $200. Check out the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break for more information.
Apple Watch Ultra 2 with blood oxygen features hits $738
Amazon is now offering the Apple Watch Ultra 2 for $7378. This is down from $799 and marking the third-best price to date. It’s the best in over a month, and comes within $29 of the all-time low from a 1-day sale last holiday season. This model includes the blood oxygen features, and is complemented by an Indigo Alpine Loop band. We break down the new addition to Apple’s fitness stable in our launch coverage.
Apple Watch Ultra 2 is the second-generation rugged wearable from Apple with a few enhancements over its predecessor. With the same elevated case as before, there is a more distinct side module that encompasses the usual Digital Crown, as well as a secondary, customizable action button to round out the form-factor adjustments. At the center of the experience, there is the new S9 chip, which also powers the new pinch gesture recognition tech for one-handed interactions. These Apple Watch Ultra deals are perfect for spring workouts or just getting more insight into your health.
Beats Studio Buds+ fall to $130 with transparent design
Amazon is now offering the Beats Studio Buds+ for $130 in all four colors. That includes the eye-catching transparent model, as well as some other styles. Each one is down from the usual $170 price tag, and in the case of the clear version, is on sale for the first time since Black Friday. That previous price in November was just cents below today’s discount, and now to start February you can lock-in a near all-time low in all four styles.
Beats Studio Buds+ just launched back in May of last year and arrive as the latest listening experience from Beats. Notable features include improved ANC and transparency modes, which are complemented by upgraded microphones and the slick designed build. There are 36 hours of listening for good measure and everything else you can read about in our hands-on review.
CalDigit’s TS3 Plus Thunderbolt 3 dock is a 9to5 favorite
Amazon is now discounting one of our favorite Thunderbolt 3 docks on the market. The company’s official storefront via Amazon offers the CalDigit TS3 Plus for $200. It has been trending at $250 as of late, but normally sells for $300. Today’s offer is the second-best discount we’ve seen at $100 off, only being beaten by Black Friday pricing last fall. Today’s offer is $25 under our previous mention. The TS3 Plus has been a staple of 9to5 desk setups for years, including my own. You can learn more about why in our hands-on review.
Packed into its premium metal shell are five USB-A ports, three TB3 outputs, DisplayPort, Gigabit Ethernet, and more. This dock not only expands your Mac’s I/O, but brings 87W USB-C charging to the equation, allowing you to connect to all of these inputs with a single cable while still powering up your MacBook.
Compared to the newer TS4 Dock, you are making some sacrifices with the CalDigit dock on sale above. For many, these trade-offs will be worth the cash, but it’s still worth breaking down just what you’re missing between the two. The biggest adjustment is right in the name, with the newer counterpart arriving with Thunderbolt 4 support as opposed to Thunderbolt 3.
Save $661 on Apple’s 1TB iPhone 14 Pro
Amazon is now offering its in-house renewed iPhone 14 Pro for the best price ever. The previous-generation unlocked smartphone is now being cleared out with a 1TB capacity model dropping to $838. This is down from its original $1,499 price tag and marking a new all-time low at $661 off. Our previous mention had it down to $975, and now today’s offer steps in to take an extra $137 off. It’s also below the price of the 128GB model we covered previously. Whether you’re not ready to give up on Lightning just yet or aren’t sold on the entirety of iPhone 15 Pro now that it’s been around for a few months, today’s offer lets you score a new handset for less.
iPhone 14 Pro is one of Apple’s most capable smartphones to date and now a better value following the newer 15 series. Everything comes centered around the 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display that’s backed by not just ProMotion or an always-on panel, but also the new Dynamic Island module. An A16 Bionic chip makes sure to power the device to drive every pixel to all of that screen real estate, while the 3-lens camera system around back brings that same fidelity to your photos thanks to a 48 MP main sensor. Apple also applies the same entirely new emergency SOS via satellite connectivity and crash detection tech as you’ll find across the rest of the 14 series lineup.
Sonos Arc lands at all-time lows of $719
Sonos today is marking down a pair of our favorite home theater accessories. The savings kick off with the Sonos Arc at $719. You’ll find it of course at Sonos, but also a host of other retailers like Crutchfieldand Best Buy. This is dropping from the usual $899 price tag in order to match our previous mention at 20% off. We last saw it on sale during the Black Friday festivities, and now just in time for the Super Bowl, you can score that same discount.
Arriving as one of the brand’s most capable smart soundbars, Sonos Arc delivers eleven drivers in a sleek design for delivering a streamlined home theater setup with Dolby Atmos alongside all of the other staples of the ecosystem. That includes AirPlay 2 support, Trueplay audio, surround sound support, and integration with the rest of the Sonos speaker lineup.
