Speaking of more budget-friendly alternatives, if the OnePlus Buds Pro true wireless earbuds are too expensive and you don’t require active noise cancellation, Anker’s Soundcore Liberty Air 2 are among the best budget alternatives. They’re even more budget-friendly today now that you can buy a pair for $42.99 instead of $49.99 from Woot through Amazon, which is an all-time low.
In comparison to others in this price range, we found that the Liberty Air 2s boast the best microphone performance, as they offer long stems like the AirPods. While we found the tap controls could be finicky sometimes, these earbuds also have long battery life and good sound quality.
Right now, the Fitbit Luxe – the most stylish fitness tracker on the market – is currently available for just a little less. Normally $129.95, Amazon is selling the tracker for $109.95 in black and white, while Walmart has the white colorway for the same price.
If you’re looking for a tracker you can monitor overall activity levels with and wear at the gym or a party, this is the best option for you. The Luxe comes with features like continuous heart rate monitoring and SpO2 sensors while boasting a colorful OLED touchscreen display and slim design that’s perfect for those with petite wrists. However, note that while we think it’s one of the best fitness trackers, it’s not the most accurate when it comes to distance. Plus, unlike other Fitbits — like our top pick, the $229.99 Fitbit Versa 3 — it doesn’t come with contactless payments or access to a digital assistant. Still, it’s an overall good tracker for monitoring the essentials that can help you track your fitness levels for just under $110.
