8 great deals on smartphones, fitness trackers and more

we’re on it strange space of liminal offers between sales holidays. It’s not quite early enough for Memorial Day deals, but most Mother’s Day discounts have come and gone. That didn’t stop us from scouring the web for the best discounts we could find. You probably don’t want to buy a new mattress or grill right now, as those prices should be even better by the end of the month. But if you’re looking for a smartphone, a TV, or some fancy kitchen gadget, we’ve got you covered.

Discover Samsung offers

He Discover the Samsung sales event runs through May 21. New deals are posted every day, and while the biggest deals are a bit hit and miss, it’s still worth checking out if you’re in the market for a Samsung device. We’ve highlighted our favorites below.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Samsung’s Galaxy S23 lineup (9/10, WIRED recommends) is the best flagship phone series in our guide to the best Android phones. The Ultra is usually $1,200. Right now, there’s a free storage upgrade, which means the 512GB version costs the same as the 256GB model. You’ll also get a $50 Samsung credit. Finally, Samsung is offering up to $750 when you trade in an eligible device. This is a great deal if you’re looking to upgrade your device. The discount beats others we’ve seen.

Similar to the deal above, there’s a decent, slight discount on this phone, but you can save even more if you trade up a device. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is a pretty polished and durable foldable phone, but we don’t like the high price. This deal makes it a bit more attainable. The same deal is available for the Flip 4 if you prefer that style.

This is our favorite TV for bright rooms. The best deals are on the 75-inch and 85-inch models. The Samsung QN90B (8/10, WIRED recommends) has a Mini LED display that offers excellent contrast, and the 120Hz refresh rate is compatible with newer game consoles.

Fitness and outdoor activities offers

WIRED editor Adrienne So has tested many fitness trackers. The Garmin Instinct 2 Solar (9/10, WIRED recommends) is her favorite. It has a good balance of fitness features like precise GPS tracking and modern convenience features like music controls. The battery is recharged through sunlight: Adrienne’s battery lasted three weeks on a single charge. The wide variety of colors and styles are the icing on the cake.

The Apple Watch Ultra (8/10, WIRED recommends) is a giant device, but it’s still a good Apple Watch and fitness tracker. Its rugged casing and enhanced outdoor capabilities make it potentially a better choice for serious athletes than other Apple Watches. This offer only applies to the Yellow Ocean band color. If yellow isn’t your favourite, you can check out our guide to the best Apple Watch accessories for some strap recommendations.

This table frequently sells for at least $100. I haven’t tried it, but I have tried similar versions from other companies, and they are all about the same. This table packs up into a small roll when not in use. Simply unfold the stakes, drive them into the frame, and you have a level surface to place a plate, cup, or bottle of sunscreen. It even has built-in cup holders. I especially like these tables for making friendship bracelets.
