The Best Deals of the Day


Titan Fitness 12″ Plyometric Box HD
Save 50%: Bodyweight exercises can only get you so far in the gym-game. Step it up a notch (literally) with a plyometric box. It’s a simple way to make moves like knee drives, and tricep dips harder and integrate more vertical into your workout, putting your balance to the test. The steel base means it’ll survive thousands of hops and the rubber top is necessary to guarantee you won’t slide as you jump up and down. — Meg Lappe

Fujifilm X-E2S Mirrorless Camera
Save $320: The Fujifilm X-E2S is a rangefinder-style mirrorless camera, released in 2016, that’s cut from the same cloth as Fuji’s way-more-expensive X-Pro2. It doesn’t have the hybrid viewfinder of the X-Pro2, but the X-E2S still has a high-res electronic viewfinder and it’s still an excellent compact travel camera. It has a 16-megapixel X-Trans sensor, 77-point autofocus system and an endearing retro look.
Normally, the X-E2S with an 18-55mm (F2.8-4) lens goes for around $1,000, but it’s on sale on Amazon and Adorama for $680 — that’s the $320 off and the best deal we’ve ever seen the X-E2S going for. The camera is available in black and silver models on Adorama. — Tucker Bowe

TCL P-Series 4K HDR TVs
Save: TCL may have once been considered a cheap TV manufacturer, but it’s almost completely curbed that notion in recent years — now, frankly, it’s known for its high-quality and affordable TVs. Last year, its P-Series was some of the best bang-for-your-buck 4K smart televisions you could buy. They also supported HDR and Dolby Vision formats, which is a rarity for TVs in this price range. The 55-inch model normally goes for around $800, but you can save a couple hundred dollars and pick up a refurbished model for $530 on eBay. If you’re looking for a brand new TV, Best Buy is also selling this model on sale for $600. — Tucker Bowe

eBay: $530 (refurb)Best Buy: $600 (new)

Orient Bambino V2
Save 52%: The Orient Bambino is a stalwart inclusion on many affordable watch roundups (including ours) because few timepieces combine a mechanical movement with such a handsome design at its low price point. Orient has made many dial variants of the Bambino, but the V2, with its Roman numerals and blue hands, is one of the classiest. Right now you can get it for just $143, making this a no-brainer buy if you’re looking for a handsome watch to complete your business or formal wardrobe. — Andrew Connor
