Take your gaming to the next level with the Oculus quest 2
Oculus launched its rift product to critical acclaim in 2013, and it was, in many ways, the first of its kind. The head-mounted display changed the way virtual reality worked, and, for the first time, a fully immersive gaming world was possible. And if you want to test the waters, why not snap up this deal from John Lewis on the device.
Oculus quest 2 virtual reality headset: £299 with free £50 voucher, Johnlewis.com
In terms of features, the Oculus quest 2 comes in two flavours. The smaller 128GB model usually retails for £299, whereas the larger 256GB model will set you back around £399. But now, while the prices haven’t been lowered, you can pick up a £50 voucher when buying either version from Currys.
The headset’s focus is on accessibility, and it remains the cheapest way for most people to get into virtual reality. It’s lightweight, wire-free and therefore easy to carry around and features a crystal-clear high definition screen.

You don’t often seen discounts on the very latest Apple Watch, but right now there’s cool £20 off the series 7 model at Currys and a few other price-matching retailers. In our review, our tester was smitten by the improvements over the previous model. “Apple Watch series 7 is a subtle but powerful step up from last year’s already-excellent series 6 (was £699, now £629, Amazon.co.uk),” they said. “The design changes are understated but definite improvements, and the user interface has been tweaked to make the most of them – the display really gleams when you choose a favourite photo as the Watch face, for instance.”

Our favourite IPL hair removal machine has 22% off for Cyber Monday

At 22 per cent off, this device is quite the steal. It offers six different attachments heads, allowing you to tailor your treatment to suit anything from your bikini line to your face.
In our review of the Jovs venus pro, our tester noted that it’s “the first of its kind to feature an anti-ageing skincare treatment, doubling up as a facial device as well as a hair removal tool”. So how does it work? The face attachment doubles up as a facial tool, simply switch to the “skin rejuvenation” mode to activate an LED skincare treatment that claims to firm the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and create collagen, an impressive feat for one machine.
