1. Google Pixel 8 Pro: $999 $799 at Amazon

The Google Pixel 8 Pro earned the top spot in our list of the best Android phones of the year, not because it’s the most powerful (that title belongs to the illustrious Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra) but because it boasts balanced specs, some of the best camera tech on the market, and loads of bang for the buck. 

Head to Amazon during the Black Friday sale and you’ll save a straight $200 on the Google Pixel 8 Pro, which is the biggest discount that the unlocked phone has ever received, no strings attached!

We gave the Fitbit Charge 6 4.5 out of 5 stars in our recent review, namely because of its comfortable design, Google Maps support, over 40 activity modes, and a comprehensive arsenal of health sensors. All of this for just a Benjamin? Count us in.

This Black Friday deal from Walmart changes all that. For a mere $228, you’re getting outstanding picture with 4K upscaling, HDR support, and of course, instant access to all of your favorite streaming services (plus a lot of free stuff!) thanks to the Roku TV platform.

That’s not a record low price for the watch, but it’s pretty darn close.
