There are many options (including for kids) from Fire TV Stick to Echo Dot. Amazon is also offering great discounts on its lineup of Fire Tablets and Candles. To help make your shopping experience easier, we’ve put together our favorites below.
Updated November 26: We’ve fixed the links and added more Amazon devices, such as the Eero Pro 6.
Amazon’s Basic Kindle (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite to suggest to most people. It has a 6-inch E-ink touch screen with built-in front light that makes it easy to read in the dark. However, it’s not as waterproof as the Kindle Paperwhite, and it only comes with 8GB of storage.
If you want a premium ebook reader experience and don’t mind paying for it, the Kindle Oasis is incredibly powerful. It has a sleek aluminum body with physical page turn buttons, warm light, and excellent performance. The only catch is that it doesn’t fit in your pocket.
Like Amazon’s lineup of children’s fire tablets, the company’s Kindle Kids Edition Also Comes with a safety case, two year warranty, and one year of Amazon Kids + free of charge (which allows parents to add reading targets and age filters to their child’s library and add books .)
Kindle Paperwhite Kids is a great option if you are looking for something more durable as it is waterproof. It also comes with a 6.8-inch screen, larger than the 6-inch display on the Kindle Kids.
Fire TV Deals
It is one of the best TV streaming devices. If you’re on Amazon, the Fire TV Stick 4K is a great choice, as its menus focus on purchasing content from the company’s Prime Video service and its store. And as a third-generation version, it’s faster than its predecessors.
Don’t own a 4K TV? Interested in making a switch? Fire TV Stick Light works well for standard HD TVs. We’ve tested the previous HD models and it provides access to all the major streaming apps. It is also equipped with a simplified version of Alexa Remote which does not have all the branded buttons for specific services like Netflix and does not have TV power or volume control. You will need another app for this. It allows you to control the content via voice commands.
The Fire TV Cube is designed for “hands-free” streaming via Alexa Voice Search (6/10, Wired’s recommendations). It struggles with this difficult mission, and many people can get better with cheap Fire TV sticks. Thankfully, it comes with a remote. This is its standard discounted price.
Echo speaker deals
Amazon’s Fourth Generation Echo (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is the best overall in our roundup of the best Amazon Echo and Alexa Speakers. Thanks to its orb-like redesign, it offers much better sound quality than previous Echos; especially for larger rooms. This is a suitable option for those who are looking for a speaker for less than 100.
This smart speaker is perfect for the bedroom as it has a digital clock display. Alexa can play sounds or drown your playlist to help you sleep at night, and can wake you up slowly or loudly in the morning if you wish. It’s also a good idea to get an instant weather report when you get dressed.
If the prints of the beloved Tiger and Panda are not enough on the children’s edition of EchoDot, it also comes with parental controls and offers excellent sound quality. It also includes a free year of Amazon Kids +, which gives you access to games, audio books and other extra features.
The second generation eco-buds (8/10, wired recommendations) come with a significant upgrade on the first iteration. The new EcoBuds have Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), a more comfortable ergonomic fit, and better microphones for Alexa voice controls; making them ideal for loud use. Or you can choose Echo Buds with a wireless charging case for 90 ($ 50 off).
Echo glue. Technically A smart nightlight, but its features do not go beyond the ability to switch between colors and adjust brightness with control via the Alexa Companion app. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person. But with no built-in microphone, you’ll need to connect it to a compatible Alexa-capable device to control it via voice commands.
While we prefer Google’s smart display, the second generation Echo Show 8 is the perfect alternative for Alexa fans. It’s a nice size to fit on the kitchen counter, and you can watch videos, ask Alexa to set a timer, or make video calls with her. We also appreciate the camera shutter when you are not using it.
Fire Tablet Deals
We consider the Fire HD 8 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) to be an excellent, very basic tablet. It packs a decent processor, 2 gigabytes of RAM, and excellent battery life. And its compact size makes it perfect for travel. This version is 32GB, but you can also sell the 64GB version for $ 75.
We’ve crowned the Fire HD 10 (7/10, wired recommended) as the best Fire Tablet. And Our favorite budget tablet. Of the entire lineup of Amazon tablets, it is not only the fastest, but also the largest display of 10 inches (with more brightness than last year’s model). The base model packs 32GB of storage, but you can also choose the 64GB model for $ 115 ($ 75 discount).
For a little more than the base model Fire HD 10, the HD 10 Plus (with 32 gigabytes) comes with a few more features, including wireless charging, 4 gigabytes of RAM (up to 3 gigabytes on the Fire HD 10). More), and a soft touch finish. Need more storage? The 64GB version is also on sale at $ 145 ($ 75 discount).
We consider the Fire HD 8 Kids to be the best tablet for kids for a variety of reasons. It comes with features like regular fire tablets, which include a heavy duty case and a two year warranty in the event of an accidental drop. Like Echo Dot Kids, you get the year of Amazon Kids + for free.
The Pro version of Amazon’s Kids Tablets is a great option for those who have older children. It is larger than the HD 8 Kids tablet, offers the ability to install apps from the Children’s App Store (while still providing parental control access) and the security case is less severe.
The Eero 6 ranks among our best Mesh Wi-Fi routers for its simplicity – says Simon Hill, a co-founder of the Gear team, it was the easiest to set up. While it was Also A slow system that he tested (over long distances), it still offers a fairly wide coverage and a stable connection. Especially with this deal, you will get one Eero 6 router and two Eero 6 extender.
Offering the same sleek simplicity as the Eero 6 system above, the Pro routers and nodes are much larger to accommodate much faster speeds and an additional 5-GHz band. The Pro system can cover more ground and manage more streams at the same time, but it’s really worth upgrading if you have a fast connection (above 500 Mbps).
Amazon’s Hello is not our first choice for health and fitness tracking, but it is useful for voice tracking. Adrian Soo, Wired’s senior associate editor, says that despite the discomfort of the idea of hello, his ability to see changes in his emotional and psychological state through the tone of his voice changed his own relationship.
