Gaming Deals

Check out our guides to the Best Keyboards and Best Gaming Mice for more, plus our how-to on building your own PC.

We think the Logitech G Pro X (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is among the most comfortable gaming headsets out there. It’s not wireless, but it looks elegant, produces an expansive soundstage, and you can use Logitech’s software to control the quality of your voice. The mic was created in collaboration with Blue, and it’s excellent. 

Hey! Listen! Nintendo games rarely go on sale, and this small discount on the masterful Breath of the Wild brings the game to its lower than average price. If you’ve yet to pick it up for your Switch, now is the time to catch up before the sequel arrives in 2022. 

Enjoy the clickety-clack, tactile feel of the mechanical key switches as you vanquish Nazis and aliens. This wireless board gets up to 40 hours on a charge and has customizable RGB lighting. If you need help rationalizing the purchase, remember that mechanical keyboards typically last well over a decade of regular use.

This pro-grade webcam built for streaming jumps around in price a lot, and it recently went as low as $150. It’s still an uncommonly low price, and a great option if you plan to hop on Twitch as you game. You’ll need to download Razer’s Synapse software and tweak a few settings to get the picture quality the way you want, but the resulting image is sharp and excellent. 

Cycling Deals

Gore Wear C7 Windstopper Pro

Complete your cycling experience by visiting our guides to the Best Bike Locks and Best Biking Accessories.

The C7’s trim fit is perfect for cycling, where you don’t want baggy fabric dangling around the handlebars. Its Gore Windstopper fabric cuts through wind and rain drizzle to keep you pedaling even when the weather turns on you, and reflective logos make you more visible to traffic.

If it’s not cold enough outside for a full jacket, you can get by with a pair of tight, elastic arm warmers. Antimicrobial treatment keeps them from stinking up as quickly as other, non-treated synthetic arm warmers. These are sold as a pair.

Once it gets truly cold, the cycling shorts go in the closet and the cycling tights come out. These full-length tights wick away sweat while keeping you warm and toasty. A rear waist pocket keeps your phone handy and away from the bike seat.

Nothing is worse than biking with sweat-soaked underwear. The effects of chafing from wet fabric can stick around for days, like a bad curse. Slap on some synthetic liner shorts under your pants to wick away sweat and stay comfortable.

Only certain colors are on sale. These half-finger gloves aren’t the best for very cold rides, but the gel padding will add some comfort by cushioning your hands from the handlebars. Reviews warn that they run very small, so consider sizing up.

Miscellaneous Deals

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra

Peek at our Best Vinyl Accessories, Best Android Phones, and Best Workout Earbuds guides for more options. 

This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for the Galaxy S21 Ultra (8/10, WIRED Recommends). It’s one of the best Android phones around, with a really fun (and unrivaled) camera system in the US that lets you capture objects really far away with up to 10x optical zoom. 

This is our favorite bedside smart display. There’s no camera, so you don’t need to worry about prying eyes, and you can turn the microphone off with a physical switch. It doesn’t just show a clock, but you can set it to rotate photos in an album via Google Photos. Plus, you get all the benefits of Google Assistant. Ask it to set alarms, reminders, general queries you’d type into Google.

The price frequently fluctuates on this streaming stick, but this is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen recently. If you’re always watching movies and shows on Prime Video, this is the streaming stick you should use. The Alexa-enabled remote works well, and while you can watch non-Amazon content like Netflix and Hulu, know that this device largely promotes all things Amazon.

These are some of our favorite wireless earbuds for working out. They’re wireless, but a cord runs between each earbud. That makes them last longer than the competition, and also lets you hang them around your neck when you’re done working out. 

Clip the on-page coupon for $5 off before checkout. Clean your records! Gunk and grime build up in the grooves and can become stubborn to remove if you go too long between cleanings. This kit comes with a brush, air blower, cleaning solution and gel, and a cleaning cloth.
