Best Buy continues to roll out major deals in advance of Black Friday 2019. If you’re in the market for Apple gear, look no further: Best Buy is matching or setting the all-time lowest prices on the Apple Watch Series 4, this year’s MacBook Air, Beats headphones and the HomePod smart speaker. But there are also killer deals to be had on Microsoft’s new Surface Pro 7 and a bunch of other laptops, tablets, TVs and more.

Note that you need to be a member of the company’s My Best Buy rewards program, the basic tier of which is free, to take advantage of some of these sale prices. Discounts are available online and in-store. The highlights are as follows.

If you’re less inclined to buy from Apple, Garmin’s rugged fitness watches are great. The Fenix 5X cost $700 when it came out in 2017 — now, Best Buy has it for $300. I’ve been using Garmin’s lower-end Forerunner 245 and I like it a lot. The model on sale here includes all of its fitness tracking functions and adds an altimeter and barometer. Plus, you get topographic US maps, routable cycling maps for turn-by-turn navigation and a scratch-resistant sapphire lens.

Walmart has been selling these headphones for about $120 — a massive $80 discount off the $200 list price. Now, Best Buy takes it a step further by cutting the price to $90.

We love the UE Boom 2 — a compact, durable wireless Bluetooth speaker that plays loud and sounds good. It’s stain-resistant, shock-resistant and fully waterproof. Battery life is a strong 15 hours, and it can be paired with a second UE speaker for stereo sound.

Sure, this entry-level configuration has lower-end components (Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD). But you’re still getting the best Windows two-in-one tablet, with the Type Cover thrown in, for $600. This is a dynamite deal.
