Now that all the Apple Watch details are laid out for consumers, there is a big choice to be made for those interested in purchasing a timepiece with smart functionality. The Apple Watch will start at $349, with most of our readers electing for a $400 model, although early adoption levels seem to be low. If you’re thinking that a lower priced watch is more appropriate, it looks like you’re not alone. With the Pebble Time making a timely appearance on Kickstarter, many have chosen to back the lower priced option. In fact, following the Apple Watch keynote, Pebble saw a 167% funding increase.

Despite all the new releases and hype, the original Pebble is still capable of getting the job done at a more affordable price.

Microsoft announces free Office 365 for students and teachers worldwide, includes at home downloads of software

Good news coming down the pipeline for students and teachers this week: Microsoft has announced that they will be offering a free Office 365 subscription to anyone, worldwide, with an eligible email address. This includes a 1TB OneDrive allotment and free download of Microsoft Office software on up to five PCs or Macs and five mobile devices (iOS, Android and Windows). Previously, this was offered in the United States but has since expanded to the rest of the world.

A personal subscription typically retails for $9.99/month or $99/year, so this has some nice savings potential. This is big news on the iOS side of things, previously a subscription was required to get the full benefits of the app, something that has been much discussed since its initial release.

To check your eligibility (or your child’s), head over to the student account page, likewise for teachers. After entering your school provided email address, you’ll receive a confirmation email with details on finalizing your subscription and download links to grab the software. The main requirement is for your educational institution to have previously purchased Microsoft Office, if you are a user at school then you’ll likely be eligible for this deal.

Not eligible for free Office 365? Qualifying tablets from Best Buy now include a Office 365 subscription or you can grab via this HP Stream deal from Microsoft. Dropbox users still have the opportunity to add quite a bit of OneDrive storage for free.

We’ve also rounded up the best student discounts on electronics, food, games and more.
