Samsung’s budget-friendly Galaxy phone has £50 off ahead of Black Friday. The Galaxy A34 manages to squeeze in premium features such as a 120Hz OLED screen, excellent battery life, decent cameras and flagship-style materials and finish.
The Pixel Watch is the natural choice for Pixel phone owners. While it’s been superseded by the new Pixel Watch 2, the original is still a great device and cheaper than ever. Our reviewer praised the watch’s style and functionality, calling it an “excellent Android smartwatch with health-tracking powered by Fitbit – the best fitness-tracking platform for most users – and it looks sleek and stylish on the wrist.”

A close contender for the top spot in our round-up of the best robot vacuum cleaners, the Roomba s9+ is a top-of-the-range, self-emptying hoover that learns your floorplan over time, to clean your home more efficiently.

Apple AirTag, pack of four: Was £119, now £95, Amazon.co.uk
We haven’t seen a pack of four AirTags drop this low since March, so if you’re an item loser like us, then now is the perfect time to pick up some of Apple’s AirTags with this £24 saving. The neat thing about the AirTag is that when you’re close enough, you can get real-time turn-by-turn directions to your item. “Precision tracking works wonderfully well when you can get a signal, and the fact it’s powered by removable batteries is a real bonus,” our writer said in their review. “There are just so many devices connected to the Find My network that you’ll always be able to locate your AirTag if it goes AWOL.”
The Sonos One might just be the definitive all-round smart speaker for multi-room audio. Available in black or white, it packs a powerful acoustic punch with good bass and a warm, rich sound that can be cranked up to room-filling volume.
If earbuds aren’t your style, Sony’s over-ear headphones are available with a £70 discounts at Currys. These are the best wireless headphones you can buy, with unbeatable clarity, richness and noise-cancellation.
