Tech Fix: What’s Hot (and What’s Not) This Black Friday

Google, for one, plans to offer its miniature smart speaker, Google Home Mini, for $25, down from $49, and its Nest smart thermostat will drop to $179 from $249. Similarly, Target plans to sell Amazon’s compact smart speaker, Echo Dot, for $24, down from about $50.

Black Friday also tends to be the best time to buy smart kitchen appliances, like sous vide wands or the internet-famous Instant Pot pressure cooker.

Wirecutter also anticipates that audio gear like headphones will drop to their lowest prices all year. During Black Friday last year, Bose’s premium noise-canceling headphones, QuietComfort 25, were priced at $180, down from $280.

Mr. Burakowski said he expected similar deals for high-quality headphones next week. Be on the lookout for deals on Apple’s AirPods, which retail for about $160, and Bose’s QuietComfort 35, which normally cost about $350.
