Our home has far more Google smart products than Amazon, because we found the Google Assistant is far superior to Amazon Alexa.
It searches the web really well, and integrates nicely with Google Calendar and Voice.
It also integrates nicely with our
Nvidia Shield TV, to use our voice for things like, "play Shakira on Shield" or "Open Kodi" or "Pause the TV".
The Shield's processor performs faster than a Fire Stick or a Roku, and works with all streaming media services, including YouTube and Amazon Prime, versus Amazon Fire TV which does not work with YouTube.
However the Shield does cost a lot compared to other streaming devices.
Amazon Alexa products work well too, and has slightly better integration with third-party smart home products like light switches.
There will be plenty of Amazon deals available for the next few days, but definitely look at Google products as an alternative.

- Apple Watch Series 3, 38mm for $199
Still available at Walmart.com is the Apple Watch 38mm, Series 3, for $199.
For most customers, 2-day home delivery is included.
Normally, the Apple Watch Series 3 sells for $279.
This is one generation older than the latest Series 4 model, but still has almost all features as the latest model.
The Apple Watch is meant to pair with an iPhone, and will not work with an Android phone.
They do have a model with built-in cellular for $299 to text message and take calls without needing your phone nearby, requires a wireless plan from your provider (about $10 to $15 monthly), and still needs an iPhone to set up.
