This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide to everything you need to know and how to find the best deals.
Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale deals are in full swing already, including up to 59% off a bunch of its best hardware. Amazon recently hosted an event in which it announced a bunch of new devices like Fire TVs, the Kindle Scribe and more, but they are not yet available. If you’re looking to get your hands on some Amazon devices like the Echo, Fire TV, Ring doorbell and more, now is your chance to save big.
With this sale you can get some of the year’s best prices on Amazon’s Fire TV, Fire Tablets, Echo hardware and much more.
The sale spans a lot of devices, so you’re going to want to take a few minutes and sort through them all to see which ones you may be most interested in. As we learned during its event, Amazon will be bringing some of its new features, like Eero support, to older devices like the 4th-Gen Echo Dot, making these discounts even better. We’ve highlighted some of our favorite deals from the sale below, so be sure to check them out now.
If you’re looking to take the first step in equipping your home with smart devices and appliances, this is a deal you won’t want to miss. The second-gen Echo Show 5 is a compact smart display that allows you to easily check the weather, update your scheduled set timers, video chat with loved ones and much more using only the sound of your voice. You can also use it to control other Alexa-enabled smart devices, like the GE Cync smart bulbs that are included in this bundle. You’ll get two full-color 60W LED bulbs that you can control using the Echo Show 5, or the companion app, and remotely turn them on or off, adjust the colors, dim or brighten them or set a custom schedule so you never come home to a dark house again.
Fire TV deals
With Amazon’s growing selection of smart devices and streaming sticks, it was only a matter of time before it started manufacturing its own smart TVs. The Omni series is the more advanced of the two Amazon models (you can also shop discounts on the more affordable Fire TV 4-Series), and features a microphone built directly into the TV along with Alexa compatibility for hands-free control. The smaller 43-inch model is also on sale for $330 right now.

The Fire HD 10 Plus, originally released back in 2021, is still Amazon’s most advanced tablet on the market. It features a 10.1-inch full HD display, and is equipped with 32GB of storage on the entry level model, 2MP front and rear facing cameras and and 4GB of RAM — twice that of the previous generation. And at 42% off, this ties that all-time lowest price we’ve seen.

More Amazon Device deals
There’s a growing market for fitness trackers out there, and Amazon is getting in on the action with it’s own line of Halo trackers. The Halo View isn’t quite as advanced as the Apple Watch or some of the pricier Fitbits, but for $45 you get heart rate and activity monitoring, sleep tracking, body composition analysis and other basic features to help you stay on track to hit your fitness goals. It’s also waterproof up to 50 meters, and has a battery life of up to 7 days. It’s available in a few different styles, and you can pick up the slightly more affordable Halo Band, which doesn’t have a built-in display, for $40.
