Best Cyber Monday 2021 tech deals

Sony WF-1000XM4 noise cancelling earphones: Was £249, now £199, Johnlewis.com

There’s currently £50 off the Sony WF-1000XM4 earphones. The best of 2021, they’re a pair of noise-cancelling buds packed with clever features and supremely luscious audio fidelity. The earbuds can sense when you’re moving around and dial in the noise cancellation to suit your surroundings, ramping up when you’re on public transport or allowing in traffic sounds if you’re walking near a road. In our round-up of the best wireless earbuds of 2021, our reviewer praised the earphones’ bass response and overall quality. “Although these are small, light earbuds, they manage significant bass as well as great, precise clarity in higher notes. At once delicate and powerful, they have some of the best audio of any wireless headphones.”

Sony ZV1 compact vlogging camera, black: Was £699, now £579, Currys.co.uk

Whether you want to kickstart your YouTube career or just take beautiful snapshots on your travels, the Sony ZV1 is the best compact camera you can buy. Right now there’s £100 off in Currys’s Cyber Monday sale. We awarded the Sony ZV1 the top spot in our round-up of the best vlogging cameras earlier this year. “It offers the features and functionality of a way more expensive mirrorless camera, in a compact package that’s as convenient to carry around as a smartphone,” said our expert tester.

Sony WH-1000XM4 noise cancelling headphones: Was £299, now £249, Currys.co.uk

If you prefer over-ear headphones to in-ears, then look no further than the Sony WH-1000XM4s. These are the best wireless headphones we’ve ever tested, and right now they’re discounted by £50 at Currys. In our review we were blown away by the audio, saying “while the active noise cancellation quality might just be pipped by the Bose NC 700s (was £349.95, now £289.95,Bose.co.uk), it’s an incredibly fine margin, and when it comes to the full package, the XM4s can’t be beaten. The audio quality on offer is top of the tree, with barely a foot put wrong.”

Oral-B genius X electric toothbrush: Was £299.99, now £89.99, Amazon.co.uk

Electric toothbrushes bounce around in price constantly, making it difficult to spot a genuinely good deal on one. We’ve seen the Oral-B genius X on sale for as little as £100 at Boots, but £89.99 is the its lowest-ever price. In our review, our tester called it “a smart electric brush with premium cleaning ability”, with a useful app that “aims to be your personal brushing coach”.

Apple iPhone 13 pro: Was £71 per month, now £35.50 per month, Three.co.uk

Three is offering the latest iPhone at half price for the first six months of a contract. While there is an upfront cost of £69 on the 128GB pro model, you still get unlimited texts, calls and fast 5G data. Plus, you’ll also receive a £100 gift voucher to spend at Amazon. Our iPhone 13 pro review praised the new camera, saying “the swathe of photographic improvements alone are worth upgrading for, made possible by a faster processor and better camera sensors.”

Beats powerbeats pro: Was £219.95, now £149, Amazon.co.uk

Need an excellent pair of wireless earbuds for running? The powerbeats pro are our top pick for sprinters in our round-up of the best wireless earbuds. “The most comfortable true wireless running earbuds have over-ear hooks, and in this category the Beats powerbeats pros are the best workout earbuds you can buy,” our writer said in their review. “Whether you’re rocking an iPhone or an Android, they deliver exceptional comfort and fit, decent all-round sound quality and a battery life that could outlast your latest resolution to take up running again.”

Buy now

Apple Watch series SE, GPS, 38mm: Was £269, now £249, Amazon.co.uk

There’s £20 off the Apple Watch SE at most retailers this Cyber Monday. The more affordable smartwatch cuts out some of the expensive features you might not want or need, such as the ECG and blood oxygen monitors, but leaves all the best stuff intact. That means you get the same signature Apple design, a responsive and smooth scrolling touchscreen and enough health tracking features to satisfy all but most data-giddy workout enthusiasts. But do double-check the delivery date, as Amazon is currently dispatching this item in one to two months’ time, meaning there’s a slim chance it will arrive before Christmas.

Nintendo Switch neon red/neon blue bundle with ‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’ and three-month Nintendo Switch Online membership: Was £329.98, now £259.99, Argos.co.uk

The red and blue neon version of the Nintendo Switch is our favourite colour variant, and now this bundle with Mario Kart 8 is on sale at its lowest ever price. As usual, you get the neon colourway with its contrasting joy-cons, as well as the black Switch dock. With this Cyber Monday deal, you’re essentially just paying for the console and getting Mario Kart for free. Pick it up now and you’ll be racing around Rainbow Road in no time.

Well get a load of this: popular meditation app Calm is halving the price of its annual subscription to £14.49 per year, and cutting the price of a lifetime subscription from £299.99 to £119.99. The app is a comprehensive suite of feel-good meditations, self-care sessions and Matthew McConaughey-narrated bedtime tales. We featured Calm in our round-up of the best sleeping apps, where our tester praised its snooze-inducing properties. “Among its features is a sleep-boosting set of constantly updating mindfulness sessions, which combine bedtime stories, nature sounds and relaxing music to help you switch off and slow down.”

Microsoft Surface go 2 10in tablet PC: Was £529, now £419.99, Amazon.co.uk

Microsoft’s budget tablet is a gorgeous portable device that – unlike the rival iPad and Galaxy tab – runs a full-fat version of Windows and so is compatible with all of the same apps, programs and software you can use on your desktop machine. The Surface go 2 appeared in our list of the best tablets in 2021, where our reviewer described how it can “double as a laptop if you add the type cover (£99, Currys.co.uk), a sturdy keyboard that fits to the front of the tablet and is sold separately.” The more advanced Surface go 3 launched recently, which is why you can pick up last year’s version so cheaply today.

Fitbit charge 4 with GPS and swim tracking: Was £129.99, now £89.99, Amazon.co.uk

You can save more than 30 per cent on this Fitbit tracker in Amazon’s Cyber Monday sale. With a battery life that claims to last up to seven days, a built in GPS system, and plenty more great features such as sleep scoring, 24/7 heart rate tracking and iOS and Android compatibility, this Fitbit has everything you need in a fitness watch. It also landed the best buy spot in our review of the top fitness trackers and watches, with our reviewer calling it “the best of Fitbit’s dedicated fitness trackers”.

This smart, low-profile camera sits beneath your TV and uses the screen to make and take video calls with friends on Messenger and WhatsApp. Call quality is said to be crystal clear and the face-tracking camera ensures you or your family are always centred in frame. Fun features such as a story time mode with playful AR filters help families stay in touch over long distances.

Amazon Fire 7 tablet, 16 GB, black (with ads): Was £49.99, now £29.99, Amazon.co.uk

There’s £20 off Amazon’s best-selling tablet right now. The seven inch Fire 7 is a cheap and cheerful way to read books, browse the web, watch movies and TV shows and listen to your music on the go. It’s not the most powerful device you can buy, but it has features where it matters: there are front-facing and rear cameras, integrated Alexa and expandable storage, plus all of the major streaming apps and catch-up services. The Fire 7 was already ridiculously good value at £49.99, and now at just £29.99 a pop, you could use them to tile your bathroom.

LG OLED C1 48in 4K HDMI 2.1 smart TV with Dolby vision IQ: Was £1,299, now £999, Box.co.uk

The LG OLED48C16LA is relatively compact for an OLED TV at “just” 48in. However, thanks to the use of top-end OLED panel technology and Dolby Atmos tuned speakers, it still delivers a rich and cinematic viewing experience. It’d be the ideal choice for anyone with a small flat or who doesn’t want the TV to dominate the living space like some other OLED behemoths in this list. Right now at Box there’s a £300 discount.

The software lags behind Apple and Google’s offerings when it comes to third-party apps, but the health sensors, workout modes and GPS tracking make it a fantastic choice for Android users.

Amazon Echo dot (3rd gen) smart speaker: Was £39.99, now £18.99, Amazon.co.uk

Amazon’s Echo dot speakers are some of the hottest items on Black Friday, partly because the retailer slashes the price of its own-brand products by a ridiculously large amount. While we’re still waiting for discounts on the latest fourth gen Echo dot, Amazon has unveiled an impressive half-price offer on the third gen model. In our review of the latest Echo dot, our tester said of the range: “Amazon’s smart speakers are wildly popular, with good reason: Alexa is easy to set up, simple to navigate and the speakers themselves are of a high quality.” If you’re less precious about having the latest model, this early deal is for you. But, you will have to wait a little while to get your hands on the Echo dot, as it won’t be back in stock until 15 December

Apple AirPods pro: Was £239, now £185, Amazon.co.uk

Apple AirPods pro are pretty expensive but, thanks to Amazon’s Cyber Monday sale, you can snap them up with a £40 discount. In our review of the earbuds, our tester said they “are a high-end pair of earphones that are difficult to find much fault in”. Retaining a similar design to the original AirPods (was £119, now £99, Amazon.co.uk), they feature Apple’s signature glossy white finish but come with three different sized silicone eartips, so you can find the perfect fit for you.

Buy now

Logitech streamcam: Was £139, now £74.99, Amazon.co.uk

A webcam designed for creators and social media stars, the Logitech streamcam can be quickly twisted 90 degrees to film in portrait mode for Instagram reels and TikTok posts. We featured this webcam in our round-up of the best cameras for vloggers, where our reviewed recommended the streamcam for everyday Zoom meetings. “The best-use case for the streamcam is with Zoom calls and video podcasts,” they wrote, “where you need a no-fuss desktop camera that’s always on, but don’t want to look like you’re broadcasting from the bottom of a lake.

Sennheiser momentum true wireless 2 earbuds: Was £279, now £175, Amazon.co.uk

These noise-cancelling earbuds from Sennheiser are some of the best we’ve tested and featured in our round-up of the best wireless earbuds of 2021. Our review called them “a significant upgrade. You don’t need to compromise on performance in exchange for comfort, or put up with unnecessary bulkiness if you want punchy, clear sound.” The only major downside we found in was their high price, but they’re a third off at Amazon right now.

It features “a high-resolution screen which is extremely easy to read” and the “design is elegant with the screen flush to the frame”.

All you do is plug it into your TV, connect it to your wifi network, and away you go. The resolution is capped to Full HD instead of the superior 4K, but that’s still absolutely fine for a smaller bedroom television or computer monitor.

What is Cyber Monday?

In days of yore, Cyber Monday was the online-only equivalent to Black Friday. Now though, with online shopping bigger than ever, Cyber Monday is just another part of the Black Friday weekend (or week, in many cases).

Some physical retailers like to hold back certain deals until Cyber Monday, making them online-only. But for the most part, the two days have merged into a four-day shopping bonanza.

Last year, Cyber Monday was the largest online shopping day in US retail history, with $10.7bn (£7.7bn) of sales in a single day.
