G-Shock has announced a few changes to its Mudmaster ultra-tough smartwatches for 2020, highlight by a new black-out colorway that’s sure to turn some heads. The Mudmaster lineup was first introduced last year with Bluetooth connectivity and a robust design.

Full details on the new G-Shock Mudmaster can be found below, alongside pricing and availability information.
Anker’s latest Amazon sale is headlined by its 30W PowerPort Atom III USB-C Wall Charger at $21.99 Prime shipped. You’d typically pay $35 for one of Anker’s latest wall chargers. We’ve seen it drop to $23 a few times before, with today’s deal delivering a new Amazon all-time low. I’ve been using this wall charger while traveling over the holidays and can say that its slimmed-down design makes it a great companion wherever adventures take you. Plus, 30W output is enough to power up the latest iPhones and iPads. It can even tackle a MacBook when not in use, but may struggle to keep up with higher-end machines. Rated 4.6/5 stars.
Another standout is Anker’s new Nebula Apollo Mini Projector for $319.99 when the on-page coupon is clipped. That’s down from the usual $400 price tag and a new Amazon all-time low by $30. Amongst a number of notable features is AirPlay, which makes this projector compatible with Apple’s wireless beaming technology. You’ll also find one HDMI input and support for up to 100-inch projected images. Includes up to 4-hours of playback on a single charge. Rated 4.4/5 stars.
Other notable deals include:
- 7.5W Qi PowerWave Pad: $10 (Reg. $22)
- w/ code SDAKA251
- W1 Fast Wireless Car Charger w/ Mount: $28 (Reg. $35)

Amazon offers Apple AirPods 2 with charging case for $129 shipped. You’d typically pay $159 with today’s deal returning to the Amazon all-time low price. Upgrade to the same AirPods with a wireless charging case for $169 (Reg. $199). The second-generation AirPods offer support for “Hey, Siri” and include Apple’s upgraded H1 chip for fast wireless pairing. We loved them in our hands-on review.
Prefer a lower-cost alternative to Apple’s AirPods? Save nearly 50% and opt for Anker’s Soundcore Liberty Air earbuds. You will miss out on deep iOS integration and “Hey, Siri” support, but there’s still a lot to like here. Check out my review for additional details.
Amazon offers the previous-generation 21-inch iMac 2.3GHz/8GB/1TB for $949.99 shipped. Originally $1,099, today’s deal is $150 off the regular going rate. We saw it drop to $900 once back in August, otherwise, it’s held steady at this price. The Apple iMac is a solid option for students or those not in need of the latest tech. It features 802.11ac Wi-Fi and ships with Apple’s Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2.
Amazon offers Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Air 128GB for $899.99 shipped. Final price reflected at checkout. As a comparison, that’s a $199 savings off the regular going rate and a match of the best we’ve seen outside of holiday mentions in recent months. Best Buy is currently charging full price.
The latest MacBook Air from Apple sports a 13-inch Retina display, Touch ID, a dual-core 8th generation Intel i5 processor and 128GB of storage. Two Thunderbolt 3 ports and up to 12 hours of battery life round out the list of notable features.
Make good use of your savings and grab a USB-C hub. With four extra USB-A ports, this option from AmazonBasics is a great accessory to have in your arsenal. Ideal for connecting legacy devices and maximizing productivity.
