Prime Day is here! And if you're looking to upgrade your devices, now's the time to do it — there are HUGE price drops on zillions of products. After surges in demand throughout the pandemic, retailers have been left with massive amounts of overstock — which means even deeper discounts for you at Amazon's two-day shopping event. What's even better? You can get a deal on Amazon devices. There are plenty of Prime Day deals to keep you entertained all the way to Labor Day. From Kindle e-readers to hold all your beach reads to Fire TVs for bingeing every episode of House, there are tons of discounts on Amazon devices that are hard to pass up. With that good news, let's get shopping!

Even though the price is low, the 'wow' factor is high — the Insignia has a picture as crisp and colors as vivid as models well above its price point. The audio, too, is top-notch. In fact, nearly 18,000 shoppers have given this model a perfect five-star rating. "I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV," reported one of them. "As far as clarity goes, I believe (HD) 720p is plenty for this screen size."
The Omni Series brings your fave video to life with vivid 4K Ultra HD, and you can control your entertainment with its hands-free Alexa integration. You can also stream hundreds of thousands of movies and TV episodes with Prime Video and subscriptions to Netflix, Disney+ and more.
"My wife bought this TV to replace our two-year-old Vizio that was failing already," wrote a happy husband. "I gotta say she was right again (hush don’t tell her I said that). The picture is amazing and the sound isn’t bad, either. Works great with our Alexa and our Ring cameras. If you want to save a little money and get a great picture, go for it.... I would buy another."
When you need the motivation to get moving, but you're not sure you want to spend big bucks on a fitness tracker, the Halo View will, um, fit the bill. It measures your blood oxygen saturation, heart rate, sleep, and skin temperature, while its companion app offers tons of features to help you ratchet up (or down) your results. Includes one year of full access to exclusive membership features, workouts and programs.
Shoppers love being able to literally see their stats improve. "Everything I measure, I pay attention to and it improves," said one hale and hearty customer. "With this device I track my exercise every day — biking, running, power walk, whatever I do. I’m tracking and measuring it, so I’m thinking about it. I want to look at this device and see my numbers improve, so I exercise more. People are motivated that way."
You may have heard about the Halo Band; it’s the View’s 2020 predecessor and a top-seller in its own right. A major difference is that it doesn’t have a digital display, so it doesn’t send you alerts and reminders. You have to log into your Halo membership to see your health overview and unlock a suite of tools and info.
“There are no screens, so it's not distracting. I can wear it all day and night with no issues,” wrote an astute fan. “It helps track my sleep in no way my Apple Watch or FitBit can. The tone function is what blew me away. I had no idea how I sound when I talk, and I love that it can pick up on that and guide me on the ways I sound.”
This super-smart speaker delivers crisp vocals and balanced bass that'll give you that wall of sound you've always wanted. Stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, SiriusXM and others. Or broadcast audiobooks and podcasts throughout your home. And since the Echo comes with Alexa, you can have her to play the news, answer questions, check the weather — even tell a joke! You can also use voice activation to turn on your smart lights, adjust the thermostat and lock doors with compatible devices. It's no wonder this cute gadget has more than 97,000 five-star reviews.
"Best ever!" exclaimed one reviewer. "I love the look of the new globe-style Dots. The sound is excellent for its size, and I love the futuristic look and shape of the device. Highly recommended!"
Check in when you're away with the built-in camera, and control compatible devices like cameras, lights, and more using the interactive display or your voice. Whatever you need, Echo's got you covered.
This shopper who loves their Echo wrote, "I had no idea how badly I needed this in my life until I actually got it installed. I’m obsessed! I don’t even think I’ve scratched the surface on some of the things the Echo can do, but if you're looking for a new gadget to pair with your Alexa devices, this is definitely the one!"
For once, be glad to hear the words "You're Fire-d!" Amazon's dazzling venture into the world of smart TVs gives you access to more than 500,000 movies and episodes and thousands of channels and apps. With the included Alexa remote, you can even use voice commands to launch apps, search for titles, play music and more. The picture is seriously stunning, say fans.
This scrutinizing screener loves the Fire TV's OS. "It boots up quickly and is always one home-button click away, no matter what you're doing or which input you're on. Everything is snappy and loads quickly. Apple+, PS5, Prime Video, PLEX, Recast, etc. have all been tested and work/look great. There are enough picture options to dial things in to your liking. You can adjust the picture settings for each input. AND for each individual app! Which is pretty amazing and useful."
Take the Kindle Paperwhite to the beach — or a bubble-filled tub — since it's waterproof. You can even pair this version with Audible to listen to books when you're on the go. And, get this — a single battery charge lasts for weeks.
This shopper breaks it down. "This new Kindle merits five stars. Here are some Kindle Paperwhite features you'll enjoy: Built-in light — reading in bed while someone is trying to sleep next to you is now easy. Touch screen — getting around your Kindle is easy. Turn pages and shop in the store, all by touching the screen. Bluetooth — sync this up with a speaker or headphones to have a book read to you. Waterproof — this is a new feature to this Kindle."
The Eero 6 Mesh Wi-Fi Router can cover up to 1,500 square feet with speeds up to 900 Mbps. Unlike a Wi-Fi extender, which sacrifices speed for coverage, this mesh router can handle both. No lag, hiccups or dropouts! And shoppers are just in love with it.
"This is the best thing ever! We use all streaming services, don’t have good cell phone reception and internet used to lag," added another five-star reviewer. "Since installing the Eero 6, we have had no issues and I can’t believe the speeds we are receiving. It’s as if you are plugged into the modem with Ethernet cable everywhere in the house."

Our top pick for Prime Day:
“I fully believe this year’s Prime Day will once again outdo last year's, and I would legitimately be surprised if Amazon doesn't report record-breaking numbers again,” she told Yahoo Life. “Even with inflation being a concern, there are going to be deals that are too good for shoppers to pass up.” With that good news, let's get shopping!
