Fitbit Versa 2 is $150 at Amazon for 4th of July — save $50

Corey Gaskin/Digital Trends

Keen to get fit this summer? Right now, you can buy the Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatch for only $150 at Amazon. It’s the ideal way to hold yourself accountable when it comes to working out, plus it looks great. Normally priced at $200, it’s enjoying a $50 price cut thanks to Amazon’s 4th of July sales.

Fitbit has consistently made great fitness trackers over the years and the Fitbit Versa 2 continues in that trend while adding some useful smartwatch-esque features. The smartwatch has a sizable display and always-on feature so you can always take a quick glance at all the key information you need to know. The Fitbit Versa 2 certainly offers plenty of useful information, too. It tracks every step you take each day, how many calories you’ve burned, as well as your heart rate 24/7.

Dive further into the gadget and you’ll also find details on your hourly activity range, active minutes, and how many floors you’ve climbed on any given day. It’s perfect for ensuring you know exactly how active your lifestyle is. It even tracks your sleep, giving you a daily sleep score to help you understand how well you’ve slept, and how much of that was light, deep, or REM sleep.

Want even more from the smartwatch? No sweat. The Fitbit Versa 2 also has Alexa built into it so you can talk to it and get all kinds of information like news, sports scores, and weather updates, and it can set timers and alarms and even control your smart home devices. All from your wrist? Yes — it’s super useful.

There’s also support for popular apps like Spotify so you can easily play over 300 songs on your wrist, saving you the need to carry extra devices. You’ll also receive a wide range of notifications, including for calls, texts, and calendar updates.

With a 6-day battery life, you won’t have to worry about recharging your Fitbit Versa 2 too often either.

Stylishly understated, the Fitbit Versa 2 fits into your lifestyle perfectly. Ordinarily priced at $200, it’s only $150 right now as part of Amazon’s 4th of July sales. We can’t see this deal lasting for long given the 25% price cut so if you’re keen to get fitter, this is the time to snap one up.

Google Pixel 4a pre-orders go live with August 20 availability

Google’s newest phone, the Pixel 4a, is finally available for pre-order. Having blown by its expected May launch, the handset arrives with a wallet-friendly $350 price tag.When much of the fanfare and advertising for phones tends to center around flagships and devices approaching $1,000, Google’s latest is a fraction of the price. Nevertheless, it still has more than enough hardware and modern software to satisfy the needs of the masses.At just $350, the Pixel 4a runs Android 10 and largely features the same camera experience that’s found in the Pixel 4. Moreover, it also has a headphone jack and a bigger battery than the standard model.Android 105.81-inch FHD+ displayQualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor6GB RAM128GB storage12.2-megapixel dual-pixel rear camera8-megapixel wide-angle camera3140mAh battery3.5mm audio jackAs to why the Pixel 4a is less than half the price of the Pixel 4, there are plenty of reasons. It’s just up to the buyer to determine whether it’s worth spending the extra money.With that said, the Pixel 4a does not have wireless charging, nor does it have the soft-touch glass back and water resistant protection. Instead it has a polycarbonate body to keep price down.AvailabilityThe Pixel 4a is available for pre-order in the US at Google Store and on Google Fi where it can be purchased unlocked at just $350. It will be more widely available to customers on August 20 through the Google Store, Best Buy, Amazon, and more. Additionally, US carriers will offer the phone, including Google Fi, US Cellular, and Verizon.Customers who purchase the Pixel 4a receive three month free trials of YouTube Premium, Google Play Pass and Google One.Interestingly enough, the Google Pixel 4a appears to be offered in black only through Google’s online store.
