Apple Watch band deals from $5
We’ve spotted a number of Apple Watch band deals this morning over at Amazon. Those upgrading to the new Series 5 model will want to consider grabbing an extra strap to upgrade their look for any situation. Headlining is the new Leather Loop in three finishes for $99. Prior to the event earlier this week, you’d pay $149 for these bands, but Apple has officially dropped the price. This is just the second time you’ve been able to pick up this band for under $100 all-time, so it’s particularly notable. It’s slated to ship next week. Amazon also has Apple Watch Sport bands in both sizes and various colors for $35.99, which includes the (Product)RED model, which is still on sale from earlier this week. Don’t forget to look for extra savings at checkout. Today’s deal is down from the usual $49 price tag. The Pride Edition band is also still being discounted as well to $35.99. Finally, those looking to save big can go with a BRG Sport Band in black for $4.99.
Apple’s latest Retina 5K iMacs offer plenty of I/O
B&H is discounting Apple’s 2019 27-inch Retina 5K iMacs by up to $350, marking some of the best prices to date. As a comparison, Amazon is taking around $100 off most models. Our top pick is the upgraded 3.6 GHz/8 GB/512 GB SSD model for $2,549. That’s down $250 and the best price we can find. Apple’s latest 27-inch iMac sports a gorgeous 5K Retina display, AMD graphics, multiple Thunderbolt 3 and USB-A ports, along with Gigabit Ethernet. If you’re looking for a solid prosumer-grade content creation machine, Apple’s 5K iMac is sure to fit the bill.
