Uber-Cool Electronics: From Sports Cameras to Portable Pocket Speakers

By , dealnews contributor

"Gizmolicious" is a word we've coined at dealnews to describe deals like the five you'll read about in this roundup. We've got gadget bargains covered on items ranging from cool waterproof digital camcorders to amusing South Park speakers, and more. Sounds gizmolicious? We thought so. Looking for more? Be sure to check out our daily electronics deals.

  1. GoPro HD HERO3 Silver Edition 1080p Waterproof Digital Camcorder
    Store: BuyDepot via Rakuten Shopping
    Price: $277 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $18

    Is It Worth It?: We're thanking a dealnews reader for finding this bargain that's $91 under our mention of the Black edition of this camcorder from two weeks ago. While giving ultimate kudos to the Black edition (which is also costlier), CNET says: "The GoPro HERO3 Silver and White editions are strong contenders in the sports camera market." This WiFi-capable camcorder features up to 1080p video capture at 30fps, 11-megapixel burst capture mode, waterproof housing at up to 197 feet, aspherical lens, mounting hardware, and more.

  2. Sony Ericsson LiveView Bluetooth Cell Phone Interface
    Store: eMall Group via eBay
    Price: $22.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $3

    Is It Worth It?: Here's a price that's $3 under our Black Friday mention. (We mean it when we say that every day is Black Friday, you know.) And our buddies at Engadget like it: "The LiveView is one of those odd products that looks seemingly plain from the user's perspective, yet for us it's caught a fair bit of attention when worn on our wrist." Compatible with most Android smartphones, this wearable Bluetooth cell phone accessory allows you to play music, mute calls, view incoming calls, and read texts, Twitter, and more without taking out your cell phone.

  3. Mobi South Park Portable Pocket Speaker
    Store: Groupon
    Price: $10 with $2.99 s&h
    Lowest By: At least $7
    Expires: February 15 at 1 am ET

    Is It Worth It?: Who killed Kenny? Maybe excitement over this Editors' Choice deal had something to do with it. Available in five styles (Stan, Kenny, Cartman, Kyle, and Butters), these speakers measure 3.25" x 4.75" x 2.5" and feature a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, 2-watts RMS power, and more. No word yet if Trey Parker and Matt Stone are working on "The Book of Mormon" bookshelf speakers.

  4. Haier The Rise Docking Station and Clock Radio for iPhone or iPod
    Store: Walmart
    Price: $17.98 with $1.97 s&h or free Site-to-Store pickup
    Lowest By: $16

    Is It Worth It?: This docking station features a name ("Haier The Rise") that's straight out of a Norse myth, one occupied by gods with hammers and nifty electronic gadgets from the fabled Valley of Silicon. This dock features a touchscreen FM tuner, Internet radio, integrated speaker, dual alarm clock, Haier Rise app, and weather forecast. It's compatible with most 30-pin iPhone and iPod models.

  5. $50 The Sharper Image Credit
    Store: Gilt City
    Price: $25
    Shipping: From $7.95 (when redeeming)
    Expires: February 14

    Is It Worth It?: This is one time when it's good to indulge in some shopper's "Gilt," since Gilt City offers 50% off on a Sharper Image store credit, which is the best such offer we've seen from Sharper Image. Uber cool gadgets and gizmos reside at The Sharper Image, so a tech-obsessed junkie is sure to find something worthy to spend the money on. Note that the credit is not valid on sale items and can't be combined with any other offer or promotion. There's a limit of one voucher per member, and it must be used in its entirety by May 6, or the balance will be forfeited.
