Monthly sales come and go, but the biggest ones usually happen in the months 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 — perhaps on the upcoming 10.10 sale (and Black Friday, too).
And if you're looking for a cheap gift, consider these 5 gadgets under S$30 instead.
Deviating slightly from its usual hand-held cordless stick vacuum cleaner design is the Dyson Omni-glide. Instead of a large bin and a trigger, the Omni-glide sports a thinner, broom-like profile, and an on-off switch. However, the strong cyclone-based suction power, and multiple attachments are pretty much standard Dyson. Factor in the new dual-head Fluffy roller head that easily swivels over obstacles, and you have a winner.
Creative Outlier Air V3
The latest Creative Outlier Air V3 maintains the excellent battery life and affordable pricing that the series is known for. But the new model also adds features — ambient mode and active noise reduction — that bring it parity with the competition. While not all these features are a hit, the Air V3 is definitely a solid contender in its price range. It also has enough improvements to justify an upgrade if you have the original Outlier Air or the Outlier Gold.

Ambi Climate 2
While some newer aircon models come with smart features, the older models usually don’t. The Ambi Climate 2 turns your aircon smart, by not only letting you control it via an app, but also automatically adjusts the temperature to suit your tastes. I’ve been using the Ambi Climate 2 for a few years now, and it’s something I can’t not have for sleeping cool at night. It's definitely one of our favourite gadgets to buy at a sale, and be sure to pick more than one if it fits your budget.
