Everything from smart light bulbs, to smart appliances, to smart security cameras, to smart thermostats can be adjusted and customized to fit your needs using the Mini.

    Beyond home functionality, its intimate connection to the entire Google ecosystem means it can do most everything you usually turn to Google to do for you. You can ask it questions like you were conducting a Google search, and it'll serve up the answers. It's also tied in to Google Calendar, so it can help you schedule appointments, or keep on top of important details like flight information.

  • Save 75% on this Google Assistant-enabled smartwatch ahead of Black Friday

    Early adopters of wearables like smartwatches bought them because they were just a cool and new thing. After that opening wave, more traditional buyers joined in, many driven by the device's novel fitness and health-monitoring capabilities. 

    But, in 2020, keeping tabs on your health through your smartwatch isn't just a novel idea anymore. For many, it's downright essential. In the wake of COVID-19, a Samsung executive said worldwide wearables sales have spiked by 30 percent this year, fueled by their health-monitoring functions. 

    The TicWatch Sport Smartwatch, created by Mobvoi, is centered around Google's Wear OS, allowing the watch to sync seamlessly with the entire network of Google's wearable fitness and informational services and apps. 

    Working hand-in-hand with the Google Fit app, the most critical feature in this wearable is its heart-rate monitor, registering the wearer's heart rate in real time with a built-in PPG sensor. Along with that vital data, the watch also handles all the activity tracking we've come to expect from a wrist device like this, including a distance tracker and a step counter for measuring walks. It's all based around an integrated GPS antenna, which improves the tracking accuracy.

    While users will enjoy the vitality of the health features, the TicWatch still packs in all the rest of the smartwatch hallmarks that daily users demand. When synced through your phone, Android users can make and receive calls, reply to messages, get news notifications, and even stream music through the device.

    This award-winning design sports an active bezel display and a breathable watch band that comes in handy during workouts. And, just in case those workouts are happening in less than perfect conditions, the watch is also IP67 water-resistant.

    In addition to the TicWatch Sport's already discounted price, you can also take an additional 20% off your total by entering the promo code BFSAVE20 during checkout, as well as for other products site-wide for a limited time. That drops your total for this watch down to only $63.99.

Since 2021 is going to demand more than bare-bones, take a look at five stellar HD webcam options that get it right, all now on sale at early Black Friday prices. 

    On top of their already-hefty discounts, you can also save an extra 20% off your total, on these products as well as others site-wide, when you use the promo code BFSAVE20 when you complete your purchase.

    TEZL 1080P HD Webcam with Privacy Cover – $23.99; originally $99

    With security being essential these days, why should you have to put a piece of masking tape over your high-tech camera lens to ensure some privacy? TEZL thinks you shouldn't have to, which is why they equipped their camera with a handy privacy cover. Of course, this camera doesn't skimp on the meat and potatoes either, packing a 1" x 2.7" 2MP image sensor and 3.6M lens for sterling clear images in sharp 1080p HD resolution. It has a fabulous picture, even in dim or poorly lit settings, and the built-in mic even has automatic noise reduction to cut out all that background sound that disrupts your session.

    1080p USB Webcam – $31.99; originally $54

    If you're constantly hopping from Skype, Twitch, Zoom, Teams, and every other video conferencing platform, this camera can slide into any of those environments like a glove. 

    Along with 1080p widescreen resolution, this USB-connected webcam also shoots at 30 frames per second, an improvement from the standard 24, that offers images that are more crisp and colorful, and with improved contrast over competitors. Part of that also comes from the built-in image optimization function that automatically adjusts saturation, contrast, white balance, and exposure to make your shot perfect.

    iPM W9 1080p Full HD Webcam – $26.36; originally $49

    This high-definition cam from iPM is strictly plug-and-play, with no drivers needed to immediately get a great image. In addition to its 30FPS frame rate, the W9 also comes with a multifunctional base that allows you to fix it securely to your computer monitor, with the screw hold in the bottom so you can even set it up on its own tripod. It also has a built-in noise reduction microphone, which automatically eliminates background noise and clearly captures sound within 15 to 20 feet.

    iPM W10 1080p Full HD Plug and Play Webcam – $33.59; originally $59

    Unlike most cameras, the W10 isn't stuck in just one position. It's got full 360-degree rotation abilities, so you can point it up and down, side to side, and all the way around with no trouble. The high-definition lens brings true-color images to their full radiance at a frame rate of up to 30FPS for smoother, cleaner photos. The driver-free, plug-and-play design supports all the most popular computer operating systems, and it integrates easily with all the biggest streaming and conferencing services.

    iPM W11 1080p Super-HD Plug and Play Webcam – $46.39; originally $79

    In case you're worried that someone might be hijacking your video stream, the W11 comes with a convenient LED lighting system that lets you know, at a glance, if your stream is up and running or not. Those indicators will keep you in the loop so you're never broadcasting without your intent. This unit also has all the included features and abilities of its fellow iPM cams, including 1080p resolution, a noise reduction mic to squelch background sound, an easily mountable base, and a 110-degree viewing angle that allows you to get more objects in the frame at once.

  • These DIY drones combine STEM training with serious fun at Black Friday prices

    For the past few years, we've all seen it. Drones are a hot item. The allure of launching one of these crafts into the air and running it through its aerial paces is visceral. And, they're a whole lot of fun.

    But figuring out what type of drone is right for each type of potential pilot does require a little bit of thought. If you're turning controls over to a novice, it needs to be a craft with simplified operations–and it better be sturdy enough to survive a few mistakes. 

    If your new flyer is a child, do you only consider the fun a drone can offer, or do you lean into the teaching moment of it all as well? Should you offer up a gift that's as much about science, engineering, and aerodynamics as it is about actual flying?

    The team behind Force Flyers are clearly in the informative camp. But, they haven't forgotten that the play of flying can't get lost in the experience. That's why the company based in Columbus, Ohio has created a whole line of Building Block Drones–tiny crafts that mesh the worlds of STEM training and real aerial fun together.

    Each of these kits is like a cross between a Lego set and science class. At their core, these toys are fundamentally still flying machines, each with its own six axis gyro and auto flight stabilization. But, since these flying machines are assembled with blocks in a host of different configurations, builders are going to have to be willing to learn a thing or two about aerodynamics, weight distribution, and the sciences that govern flight if they want to get it up in the air.

    Whether indoors or out, each flies with its own digital proportional control for true precision flying with a maximum range of nearly 250 feet. They're also able little stunt crafts as well, capable of pulling off maneuvers like 360-degree flips with no problem. Just charge one up with its easy USB port, and pilots can enjoy their flying time. That's assuming they put the drone together correctly, of course.

    The flagship of the line is the Heli, which is a very traditional quadcopter design. 

    Then there's also the Fly and Drive collection, featuring four vehicles, which can be configured as both a drone and also a ground vehicle to maximize their playability. They each come with their own unique color schemes, accessories, and tiny figures, from the space flyer and auto racer models, to drones built for police officers, firefighters, and even the military.

    Finally, there's also a Space Fighters collection, including another four crafts that look like they may have been inspired by a certain popular film series. Whether you like the look of the Star Destroyer or the Snow Speeder, the Sidewinder or the Command Shuttle, each is ready to hit the skies and defend the galaxy…or at least, your living room.

    Each Building Block Drone retails for $40, but when you use the promo code BFSAVE20 at checkout, you can get access to early Black Friday prices for only $27.99.

  • This CBD-infused coffee is the perfect blend of Arabica goodness and cannabinoids

    The walls are coming down. Not long ago, CBD was inextricably tied to its cannabis roots, prompting unsubstantiated alarm that any CBD-infused product was basically like doing hard drugs.

    Thankfully, the world is growing up from that viewpoint–and quickly. The New York State Department of Health recently relaxed restrictions on CBD products, particularly food and drinks with CBD additives. Meanwhile, the European Union Court of Justice ruled that CBD isn't a narcotic, and that CBD products are free to cross national borders like any other product.

    While coffee drinkers already rely on their morning cup to kick their day into gear, new CBD-infused blends like Bean and Bud Balance Coffee can do more than jumpstart the day–it can actually set it off in the right direction.

    Made from 100% Arabica coffee beans, this brew presents an invigorating blend of the highest quality coffee beans from one of the most coffee-rich regions of the world. These coffee beans grow on the El Diamante Farm in Guatemala, a single-origin spot that cultivates the unique methods for infusing this coffee with industrial CBD, but never losing the grain's genuine properties.

    In addition to the rich coffee blend that includes highlights of pear, brown sugar, and even a floral hint, users don't get any artificial flavors or additives. But, they do get a 160mg total potency dose of THC-free CBD for all the natural health and body wellness issues that the cannabis extract can offer. 

    First, the naturally calming effects of CBD help counteract the effects of coffee caffeine, so even after your third cup of the day, you never feel wired or jolted full of energy. And, while the full effects of CBD are still under scientific review, many users say it's anti-pain and anti-inflammatory properties–not to mention its effects on treating disorders like depression or anxiety–are profound.

    Regularly priced at $24, this offer cuts the price of an 8 oz. supply of Bean and Bud Balance Coffee down to just $20.95.

    Do you have your stay-at-home essentials? Here are some you may have missed.

  • The TreePod hanging cabana is where the outdoors crosses with modern art

    Look, anybody can buy a set of lawn chairs. Being functional is one thing, but if you really want to turn your home or backyard into a true oasis away from the world, then you need to think beyond functionality.

    Starting with a cabana inspired by the New York Museum of Modern Art is definitely a step toward the iconic outdoor setting you're trying to build. The TreePod Outdoor Cabana is just that type of eye-catching accessory that can not only elevate any back porch ambiance, but even give your outdoor travel excursions a touch of unique flair.

    More than 1,300 backers on Kickstarter contributed over $300,000 to bring this next level hammock to reality, providing cool, yet portable comfort virtually anywhere. 

    This silver mesh cabana looks so sleek and modern because it is! Inspired by the Magis Spun Chair featured in the New York MoMA, it offers an open 360-degree view, the comfort of a luxurious bungalow, along with the calming floating experience of sitting in a hammock.

    All you have to do is find the perfect hanging point, set up the frame, and secure the hanging rope, and the entire dangling lounger comes together in a matter of minutes.

    Each pod is built to last using UV-treated and water-resistant materials. The mesh walls keep airflow circulating, while also providing enough strength to hold up to 500lbs, so you don't have to just enjoy maximum relaxation on your own. But, if you want to hog it all for yourself…well, that's understandable.

    Plus, TreePod's partnership with Trees for the Future ensures a new tree will be planted thanks to your TreePod purchase. 

    The TreePod Outdoor Cabana comes in three different sizes, with diameters of 4, 5, and 6 feet, and in several different colors to match your particular aesthetic. Retailing for $250, a 4-foot TreePod is now on sale for over 15% off, cutting your price down to only $209.99

  • This highly-rated massage therapy gun just went on sale for 65% off ahead of Black Friday

    Massage guns and their vibration therapy techniques have been surging in popularity the past few years. They hyper-target specific muscle groups in need of relaxation, while becoming staples on training tables. 

    Exalted by tons of professional athletes, percussion massagers like the Actigun 2.0 are designed to provide a powerful deep tissue massage that can relieve pain and soreness in a matter of minutes.

    While rapid vibration is the hallmark of most handheld massagers, the Actigun 2.0 doesn't just get by on its percussive power. This unit features an AI smart chip that allows the Actigun to intelligently gauge the reaction of your muscles to the treatment. Based on its digital intel, the gun can automatically lower or heighten the strength of the vibrations to match what those muscles need to recover faster.

    The Actigun 2.0 has a lot of room to change the nature of the massage as well, including 20 different adjustable speed settings. Ranging from 1,800 up to 4,200 percussions per minute, users can find just the right setting needed to break up soreness and pain. It also comes with four different massaging heads, targeted for different muscle groups, from the neck and spine, to the arms and thighs, to one designed just for joint injuries.

    It's also designed for simplicity, with a shock-resistant ergonomic handle that minimizes external vibration, along with a durable anti-slip grip for added comfort and usability. The whole thing only weighs about 1.5 lbs., so it's also easy to take with you virtually everywhere, with a battery ready to deliver up to four hours of continuous massaging magic.

    Shoppers looking for the Actigun 2.0 Percussion Massager are also in luck, thanks to early Black Friday pricing. For a limited time, this unit, along with its carrying case, are on sale at 65% off the regular price, down to only $104.97.

  • Get MacBooks, iMacs, AirPods Pro, and other killer Apple products at Black Friday prices

    Apple isn't often associated with super Black Friday deals. The company has long adopted a no-discount pricing strategy, maintaining their products at the same price all the time. But, while the Cupertino clan has historically been sales-averse, it doesn't mean you can't ever find discounts on even their most popular products.

    One loophole to that strategy is with refurbished Apple merchandise. Older Apple computers, tablets, and more are routinely cleaned, restored to factory specs, and sold as refurbished. In fact, you can now get loads of premium Apple devices and accessories now at Black Friday style prices.


    If you're an Apple shopper looking for a desktop-style computer that's ready to go with all the needed equipment right out of the box, then the iMac is your jam. As the company's flagship desktop, it comes with striking processing power from its Intel Core i5 chip, a sufficiently beefy 8GB of memory for heavy multitasking, and a positively cavernous 1TB of hard drive space. Whether you go with the 21.5-inch display or go for the larger 27-inch Thunderbolt display, each is certified to work as well or better than when it was new–and at hundreds of dollars off its regular retail price.

    Mac Minis

    If you want to go Mac, but already have your own monitor (or even have plans to use it with your big screen TV), the Mac Mini has a lot of benefits. The Mini features all the innovation and utility Apple is known for, but in an incredibly compact frame you can play virtually anywhere near a display. Ready to handle all your basic computing tasks at a more affordable price, this refurbished Mac Mini delivers outstanding performance. Grab yourself a monitor, a keyboard and mouse–and you're all set.

    MacBook Airs

    If you're over the whole desktop thing and only want a computer you can cart around with you practically anywhere, then you should give the MacBook Air laptop a second look. Weighing in at around 3 pounds, there's a reason they're called "Air", even though they sport Intel processors and enough might to blast through work, school, travel, and leisure projects with distinction. You can score all of the features of a premier laptop from these various ultra-slim refurbished MacBook Air models for only a fraction of what you'd pay buying it new.

    MacBook Pros

    If the MacBook Airs are built to be light, breezy, and portable, then MacBook Pro owners are willing to trade a little extra heft for a little more raw computing power. Still, the Pro remains thinner and lighter than most other notebooks, housing a speedy Core i5 processor, ample storage, and 4GB RAM. Users also get fast Wi-Fi connectivity for on-the-go browsing, as well as up to 7 hours of use time.

    Mice and keyboards

    With a genuine Apple computer, you better have genuine Apple components to round out the picture. And nothing completes the image better than an Apple Magic Mouse 2 and Apple Magic Keyboard. The Magic Mouse 2 syncs automatically, tracks perfectly, and glides with less resistance than other mice. And, with its built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, it lasts for weeks and weeks without needing a recharge.

    Meanwhile, the extended layout and numeric keypad, complete document navigation controls, and full-size arrow keys of the Bluetooth-compatible Magic Keyboard will streamline all your work and play. You'll also likely appreciate the stable scissor mechanism beneath each key, the optimized key travel, the low profile, and the rechargeable battery that's also built to last about 30 days before another charge. 

    AirPods and EarPods

    Tom's Guide calls 'em "the ultimate wireless earbuds." And, the latest edition of Apple's signature earbuds, the AirPods Pro, don't miss a step. Ultra-compact, lightweight, sweatproof, and comfortable enough to wear for hours, they bring a custom-built high-excursion, low-distortion driver that delivers powerful bass, active noise cancellation, and even a transparency mode that lets users hear what's happening around them. Along with touch-sensitive stem controls, these buds also sport a listening time of up to 30 hours with the charging case.

    While the AirPods Pro have swiped their crown, that's no reason to fully dismiss Apple's previous audio king, the EarPods. The speakers inside the EarPods have been engineered to maximize sound output and minimize sound loss, which means high-quality audio no matter what you're listening to. From old school connectivity with a 3.5mm plug-in variety, to updated versions with Lightning connections for the latest iPhones and iPads, EarPods don't disappoint.

    Charging cables

    Apple cables are like Pringles– you can't have just one. Whether you want to use these 2-meter USB 2.0 cables to hook your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a device's USB port for syncing, or to an Apple USB Power Adapter for charging from a wall outlet, the six-foot stretch of these connectors will likely come in handy. And while you can buy just one, you'll save exponentially by buying in bulk, with either a 3-pack or a 10-pack to make sure you're always in reach of quick charging capabilities.

    Since the Apple Watch has always marched to the beat of its own drummer, charging-wise, you can also pick up a 6-footer for powering up that wearable as well. It's equipped with MagSafe technology, a sealed system that delivers inductive charging to the watch with no possibility of exposed contact. That means it properly aligns itself every time for a charging connection.

    Charging accessories

    If you want to get power to your iPhone, iPad or other Apple device from a wall outlet, you need one of these power adapters. Featuring an ultra-compact design, this cube will funnel fast, efficient charging to any Apple Watch, iPhone, or iPod model…if you've also got an Apple charging cable too, of course. If you don't, you can also pick up the adapter and cable together. And, pro tip–right now, it's cheaper to buy the set than to just score the adapter on its own.

    Finally, if you'd like to keep your iPhone nearby, on a desk or nightstand while it charges, these Apple Lightning docks are a perfect fit. Depending on your model of iPhone, you can even get a dock to match your device–because there's no excuse for poor color coordination, even in charging.

  • Save an extra 40% on this software that will help troubleshoot your WiFi issues

    The Dead Zone isn't just a great Stephen King novel. It's also that unfortunate area in your house where WiFi signals go to die. Dead zones may be caused by actual physical barriers in your home, like a wall or a refrigerator. It could be that the distance between your router and that particular spot is just too far. If you're in a dense urban living space, other routers and devices owned by your neighbors could be wreaking havoc, as well.

    No matter what causes the problem, you have only one concern: how to solve it. Dropped phone calls, poor loading speeds, and unwatchable streaming glitches can bring frustration to a whole new level of unbearable.

    WiFi isn't just a luxury anymore. It's a necessity. And, with a lifetime of NetSpot Home WiFi Analyzer service, you can be sure you and your home don't fall prey to those horrifying dead zones.

    NetSpot has been one of the leaders in diagnosing WiFi problems for the past decade, causing iMore to declare that "you won't find a better app for figuring out why your WiFi isn't working the way you need it to."

    Using the Mac-based app, users can create a hyper-detailed analysis of their entire environment. Whether it's a home, an office, or both, NetSpot's mapping feature conducts a thorough network site survey of the entire floorplan to determine where WiFi is booming, or where it's facing trouble.

    NetSpot's full "heat map" visualization report charts signal strength of literally every signal within range. In addition to the WiFi nodes, NetSpot also finds all that environmental "noise" that could be causing problems with WiFi strength, including microwaves, cordless phones, and even interference from competing WiFi networks. It identifies ways around dead zones and tells users exactly where to put WiFi range extenders to boost their signal strength, and whether radio channels are assigned properly.

    In addition to a home with maximum WiFi efficiency, this app access also includes lifetime updates, so you'll always have the latest tools for combatting any connectivity issues. 

    NetSpot Home WiFi Analyzer is usually priced at $68, but when you add the early access to Black Friday 40% savings on top of the already discounted price, you can secure this vital service for only $23.99. Just make sure to enter the promo code BFSAVE40 at checkout.

  • This handy adapter ties your Nintendo Switch, smartphone, and Bluetooth headphones' audio together

    A kid in tech-savvy 2020 has a lot of plates to keep spinning. That avalanche of technology often requires making some difficult choices, like this one: what happens when you want to listen to music streaming from your phone and play a game on your Nintendo Switch? Since you're obviously going to be wearing headphones, and they can only sync to one source, which one do you choose?

    Tough call. Thankfully, the HomeSpot Bluetooth Audio Adapter Pro for Nintendo Switch is now a part of the mix, allowing those conflicted users to just go with both instead.

    The HomeSpot plugs right into your Switch and offers an unprecedented level of audio control. In fact, it's the world's first Bluetooth adapter for the Switch that can connect to both Bluetooth headphones and a smartphone at the same time.

    And, it doesn't just connect both audio streams. It actually uses a Bluetooth 5.0 chipset along with an advanced DSP algorithm to let users mix both feeds. The blue button on the left controls the headphones, including microphone features and pairing, while the red button on the right controls playing and pausing music on the smartphone, as well as making and receiving calls.

    Separate volume level and mixing proportion controls offer supreme decision-making over your audio, letting users set just the balance they like.

    Yes, the HomeSpot is all about communication, offering voice chat support on the Switch that is usually spotty at best. While many games don't have a chat feature, and the Switch itself doesn't have a mic, the HomeSpot works to allow for voice chatting through the Nintendo Switch Online app.

    Compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones, the HomeSpot is an easy way to integrate the Switch with all your other tech devices, while perfectly balancing your optimal audio bubble.

    The HomeSpot Bluetooth Audio Adapter Pro for Nintendo Switch retails for $49, but with the current offer, you can trick out your Switch now for just $42.99.
