For grilling enthusiasts, this instant-read thermometer is a must — and it's currently 75 percent off! Especially when the temps dip — nobody wants to stand out in the elements longer than they have to. This tool will give them an accurate reading within three seconds, so they can dash back indoors to warm up while dinner finishes cooking. Stash this must-have tool right on the grill so it's always at the ready using either the large hang hole or its strong magnet. The easy-to-read LED screen means you can quickly assess the doneness of your food in seconds, even at dusk. Best of all, it's waterproof, so it can be washed under running water!

This grillmaster dad shared, "I have a hard time keeping thermometers functional with drops, water, kids throwing them across the room, etc. If you are reading this, you can be sure this thermometer is still going strong for me and can stand up to tough use."

For both men and women, this lightweight, waterproof and windproof vest will keep you extra warm this winter. It's great for snowboarders, ice skaters, hikers or, well, anyone who just doesn't like suffering winter's extreme temps. Just charge it up via the included power bank, and with the simple press of a button, its heating modules will offer up a choice of three levels of extra heat. Even with this technology, it's machine washable (just remove the power bank)! Plus, it's good for muscle-pain relief. Win-win-win! Available in black and navy.

One happy customer raved, "Our son, who always complained about being cold, stopped complaining. He never takes it off except to shower. We may need to buy more." That's a ringing endorsement if we've ever heard one.

Halo fitness tracker

With the new year just around the corner, you might be gearing up for a fitness resolution. Keep tabs on your progress with the Amazon Halo, which is half off right now. This screen-free wearable is not distracting. It just quietly tracks your steps, sleep, heart rate and workouts.

The companion app from Amazon is free for the first four weeks, then $4 a month after that. You can even connect to Alexa, and ask her for a health summary, activity score, sleep score and more. The Halo is also compatible with wellness apps like Weight Watchers and Headspace. Right now the band is only $50, half the normal price!

One fitness hound said it’s “the best I’ve tried yet. It is very cool with its abilities. The sleep function is my favorite. It is very detailed and gives you suggestions and ways to help your sleep routine. The app gives you suggestions on recipes and [on] how to meditate and keep moving daily.… It is waterproof which is a plus.” And this shopper loved it so much they gifted Halos to the whole family. Not only that, they continued: “Finally, my energy level (moods) makes sense based on my sleeping patterns. [The Halo] has many fun features like a movement evaluator. I like the corrective exercises it suggests, and they did work for me. The additional music/stories/meditation/etc. are very good, and you may not need to purchase any other type of mediation apps.”

If you want the best of the best, the RoboVac G10 Hybrid offers a lot of technology in a small package. Since it's a 2-in-1 vacuum and mop, it thoroughly cleans your floors with little human involvement! The Gyro Navigation memorizes your home environment to create a virtual map for your RoboVac to clean efficiently in half the time of a standard robotic vacuum. Plus, the super-slim design can sneak under and around most furniture with ease.

It's dog-lover approved: "After going through two other brands (the last one we returned right away because it was useless), we love the Eufy. We have four large long-haired dogs and the Eufy manages to pick up all their hair off the concrete floors. What we particularly like is the fact that there is not a roller brush to constantly get stuck because of the dog hair. The robot rarely gets stuck under furniture like the last two units we tried, and I love the fact that it 'talks' to you, not just beeps, to let you know if there is a problem and what it is."
