Future AirPods models could be smart

Today’s best deals include Apple AirPods Pro at $235, plus markdowns on Apple Watch bands from $9, and a notable discount for one of LG’s latest UltraWide monitors. Hit the jump for all that and more in today’s 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

AirPods Pro on sale and in-stock

Amazon offers Apple’s AirPods Pro for $235. Regularly $249, today’s deal is a match of the Amazon all-time low price and our previous mentionWe’ve rarely seen them in-stock and ready to ship over the last few months.

AirPods Pro delivers a refreshed take of the popular original version, now featuring active noise cancellation, tapered silicone tips, and a water-resistant design. Apple’s H1 chip ensures you have fast connectivity and up to 24-hours of battery life. Our Jeff Benjamin agreed in his hands-on review.

Apple Watch band deals from $9

We have spotted a couple of notable Apple Watch band deals this morning, headlined by Nike’s Sport Strap at $32. That’s down from the usual $49 price tag and the best we’ve seen on the Royal Pulse colorway. This is a rare chance to save on Nike’s sport bands, which feature “high-performance fluoroelastomer with compression-molded holes”, making it an ideal companion for long workout sessions. These bands have been particularly popular and are typically not discounted direct from Nike.

Marge Plus via Amazon offers its 42/44mm Leather Apple Watch Band in Brown for $9. That’s down from the usual $13 or more price tag and the second-best we’ve tracked.

Save on LG UltraWide monitors

Adorama is currently offering the LG 34WL550-B 34-inch 1080p HDR UltraWide Monitor for $300. Typically fetching $350, like you’ll find at Best Buy and B&H, today’s offer is one of the first price cuts we’ve seen and marks a new all-time low.

Headlined by its 34-inch curved 1080p display, LG’s monitor is an affordable way to bring an UltraWide screen to your desk setup. It notably packs HDR10 support, alongside a 75Hz refresh rate and 99% coverage of the sRGB color space. Gamers will appreciate its inclusion of FreeSync support, as well. In terms of I/O, you’re looking at two HDMI ports for pairing with your machine.

elago’s throwback AirPods case is $10

elago via Amazon offers its iPod-esque AirPods Case with Keychain for $10. Today’s deal is down from the usual $13 price tag and a match of the best we’ve seen at Amazon in 2020. This throwback-style case features heavy iPod vibes with a false scroll wheel on the front and classic gray and white colorings. You’ll also find one of elago’s usual keychain carabiners on the side, which makes it easy to attach your AirPods to a bag. All ports and features like wireless charging are accessible with this case, as well.

Moment takes 20% off iPhone cases, more

With Apple making the new iPhone SE official yesterday, Moment is taking the opportunity to slash 20% off a selection of cases for the handset. Prices start at $24, and one standout is on the Wallet and Lens Case. Down from $30, like you’ll find at Amazon, today’s offer is $1 under the lowest we’ve seen prior and the best to date. This case pairs Moment’s lens mounting interface with a leather wallet for a veritable way to protect your new handset. It can hold up to three cards at a time and comes in two styles. iPhone SE already touts the “best single-camera system” from Apple to date, but throwing in compatibility for Moment’s lineup of lenses will elevate your iPhoneography game even further.
