5 favourite gadgets to buy during a sale

Monthly sales come and go, but the biggest ones usually happen at the end of the year. There are usually great deals to be had for sure, but we figure it's probably easier to know what you want to buy, then check out if it's going on sale. So without further ado, here are our favourite gadgets to buy now — perhaps on the upcoming Black Friday. We have tested each and every one of them, and they are either one of the best in their category, or great value for money.

Now if you're looking for a cheap gift, consider these 5 gadgets for around S$50 instead.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro

These Galaxy Buds 2 Pro earbuds aren't the latest from Samsung. But for around S$200 now from Amazon SG, they still offer tremendous value. Especially when the more recent, value-oriented Buds FE is going for around S$150. And you get more features, and better performance with the higher-end Buds 2 Pro. Note that it does work best with a Samsung smartphone, such as having support for 24-bit high-resolution audio.

Google Pixel 7a

Google's budget Pixel 7a smartphone may have been overshadowed by the latest flagship Pixel 8 phones. But if you have less than S$800 (or S$600 now during Black Friday) to spend on a phone, you can't go wrong with the Pixel 7a. Sure, it doesn't have the fancy new AI features in the newer models, but the Pixel 7a is a capable, compact phone that offers a similar Google Pixel experience as the more expensive Pixels.

Hisense U7K

The Hisense U7K (available for around S$3,000 for the 65-inch) is one of the better mid-range Mini-LED TVs now. The U7K has all the features you'd need in a 2023 TV, from HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ to HDMI 2.1 ports. The picture quality is better than expected, with dark blacks and bright visuals that help to make HDR content stand out. It also has a Game Bar overlay for game settings — useful for those with a modern game console or PC that can make use of its high (up to 144Hz) refresh rate.

Garmin Forerunner 265

Garmin makes great running and fitness watches, but they don't look quite as attractive as other smartwatches due to their duller screens. That's no longer the case with the Forerunner 265, which gets an OLED makeover. This bright and vibrant AMOLED touchscreen is a potential gamechanger. Coupled with Garmin's excellent training metrics and smarts, the Forerunner 265 is a great smartwatch for those who lean towards health and fitness, especially when discounted to S$567 (from Amazon US).

The 8BitDo Pro 2 is one of the best third-party controllers you can buy (for around S$50 now). Underneath that retro design is a modern Bluetooth controller that works with almost every gaming platform, including phones and tablets. The buttons are tactile, and you get two additional, customisable back buttons on the grip. It uses a 1000mAh rechargeable battery, which is rated for 20 hours of gameplay, but also has a battery bay that fits two AA batteries.
