Hot Gear Summer: Best Amazon Prime Day Deals of 2021
It’s that time of year again: Amazon Prime Day is upon us. The annual 2-day sales event kicked off Monday, June 21st, at 12:00 am Pacific Time (07:00 UTC) and will run until 11:59 pm PT Tuesday, June 22nd. Indeed, Amazon has a way of bringing the weeknight insomniac out in every gear-hangry one of us now and then.
Year after year, Prime Day expands in reach, scope, and momentum, with steep bargains for every product category (appliances, computers, electronics, fashion, home goods, lawn and garden, pets…you get the gist). And in 2021, Amazon claims the bargain bonanza will peddle some 2 million products. You can check out all Prime Day deals here.
Of course, these special offers are available to Prime members exclusively, and we aren’t likely to see price drops this substantial until November’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Not a Prime member? No sweat — nonmembers can sign up for a free, no-risk 30-day trial at amazon.com/amazonprime before and during the event.
We’ve put together this guide to 2021’s sweetest Prime Day offers, where we’ll provide you with regular updates on the best bargains. You can scroll through to see our favorite featured items for each category or jump to the category that interests you. And check back here throughout the sales event to stay up on the latest big hits.

Amazon Prime Day Deals
Save $35 on the Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen) and up to 50% off other Amazon smart home devices.

What else? The Echo Show integrates with your smart home controls to provide you with security camera optics as well as lighting and temperature control.

Garmin’s Forerunner 35 is a runner’s delight according to Gear Hungry’s running gear tester — read the in-depth review here.
The user-friendly GPS capability is but one of many features that this fitness tracker has to offer.
