It's a great year for tech, with a slew of new Amazon Echo products and the continued expansion of smart-home and wearable devices. And with Black Friday quickly approaching, we expect some Slickdealer favorites to see their lowest prices ever.

Based on current market trends and recent generational updates, we've compiled a list of the hottest tech devices we think you should watch for this shopping season.

Possible Black Friday Tech Deals for 2018

1. Sonos Beam Soundbar

MSRP$399 | Lowest Price Seen on Slickdeals$339 Predicted Black Friday Price$300

Sonos is one of the biggest names in stereo quality and technology, and the Beam Soundbar is one of its most popular products. Siri (through Apple Airplay) and Alexa are contained inside to help control your media, or even order the latest product you saw on Slickdeals.

The price recently dropped as low as $339 through West Elm this summer and we hope to turn the volume up and turn the price down to $300 on Black Friday.

2. Apple Watch Series 3

MSRP$279 | Lowest Price Seen on Slickdeals$223Predicted Black Friday Price$200

The iPhone XS and XR may have received all the buzz this year, but the new Apple Watch Series 4 was a fitting update for the top-tier of wearable devices.

While there may not be much in terms of discounts on the newest model, the Apple Watch Series 3 is still an amazing device. We hope to see its price on Black Friday drop closer to $200 as retailers attempt to move old inventory, making this a must-have for anyone in the market.

3. Lenovo 10" Smart Display

MSRP$250 Lowest Price Seen on Slickdeals$150 | Predicted Black Friday Price$125

 

With the introduction of Google's Home Hub — and subsequent price drop to $100 before it was even available — we imagine older Google Assistant devices will drop as well.

Levono's 8" and 10" Smart Displays offer similar functionality and style, with increased visibility due to the larger screen sizes. We believe that several retailers will have discounts to help this device land a bit closer to Google's own smart display.

4. Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Headphones

MSRP$349 | Lowest Price Seen on Slickdeals$249 | Predicted Black Friday Price$249

If you are looking to drown out the sound of your family this holiday season with best-in-class noise canceling, or simply be immersed in your music, the Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless headphones don't disappoint.

It even has an "action button" to trigger Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.

While the price of $349 may seem steep for some, Guitar Center recently offered the slick midnight blue and gold "Limited Edition" version for only $249. Similar savings for Black Friday would be music to our ears.

5. Amazon Echo Show (1st Gen)

MSRP$229 | Lowest Price Seen on Slickdeals: $115Predicted Black Friday Price$100

Amazon recently debuted a number of new products that add Alexa to everything from your car to your microwave. That means retailers will have a ton of extra inventory featuring some great last-generation Amazon Echo products.

We're most excited about discounts on the original Amazon Echo Show, with a 7" touchscreen display. Retailers like Bed Bath & Beyond, which typically have older tech devices, should discount the Echo Show closer to the $115 we saw from a recent Amazon Treasure Truck promotion.

6. DJI Spark Portable Mini Quadcopter Drone

MSRP$399 | Lowest Price Seen on Slickdeals$299 Predicted Black Friday Price$250

Search URL: https://slickdeals.net/newsearch.php?firstonly=1&pp=20&sort=newest&rating=popular&forumid%5B%5D=9&hideexpired=1&q=%40title+%22dji+spark%22&r=1

The newer DJI Mavic Air may be the latest in compact drone tech, but there is still a ton to like about the Spark, especially for half the price. If you are just taking flight in the world of drone video, you may want to watch out for deals on the tiny Spark.

A recent price match at Best Buy let some lucky Slickdealers pick up the Spark and a controller for only $299. Be sure to hover over the ads this Black Friday to spot similar discounts.

7. Nest Hello Doorbell

MSRP$229 | Lowest Price Seen on Slickdeals$155 | Predicted Black Friday Price$150

Search URL: https://slickdeals.net/newsearch.php?firstonly=1&pp=20&sort=newest&rating=popular&forumid%5B%5D=9&hideexpired=1&q=%40title+%22nest+hello%22&r=1

Nest's Hello debuted at the end of last year to compete with the Ring doorbells, and we are finally starting to see discounts as we head towards Black Friday.

If you are looking for something smaller in both size and price, compared to a Ring Doorbell, the Nest Hello should be around $150. Get one just in time to keep an eye on your online order deliveries!
