You may have already seen Engadget posting reviews from our friends at The Wirecutter. Now, from time to time, we'll also be publishing their recommended deals on some of their top picks. Read on, and strike while the iron is hot -- some of these sales could expire mighty soon.

Fitbit Charge HR Activity Tracker

Street Price: $145; MSRP: $150; Deal Price: $110 + $10 gift card

This deal is about $5 more than the lowest non-Black Friday price we've seen on this product before factoring in the gift card. The promotion is available on all colors and sizes of the fitness tracker.

The Fitbit Charge HR is our pick for the best fitness tracker. Jim McDannald said, "According to our tests, it's more accurate at counting steps than most other wrist-worn trackers, not to mention it works seamlessly with Fitbit's popular social ecosystem. And unique among most dedicated wrist trackers less than $200, the Charge HR uses a strap modeled after a traditional watch strap, which means it won't ever fall off accidentally."

Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch K811 Keyboard

Street Price: $90; MSRP: $100; Deal Price: $63

This deal is part of Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day, which means it will only be around through the end of the day. We actually had this up on the page yesterday when it dropped to $80 because that was one of its lowest prices in months, but $63 is its lowest price ever.

The Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch K811 Keyboard is our upgrade pick for the best Bluetooth keyboard. Kimber Streams wrote, "If you spend all day typing (like I do), you should upgrade to one of Logitech's Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboards: the K811 for Mac or the K810 for Windows. Both are more comfortable than the K380 [our main pick], with smooth, well-spaced square keys; an adjustable backlight; and correct layouts for Mac and Windows users, respectively. Our upgrade picks also have rechargeable batteries and, like the K380, let you switch between three different paired devices with the press of a button."

Google Nexus 6P 32GB Smartphone

Street Price: $500; MSRP: $500; Deal Price: $450

This is a rare discount on one of our newest smartphone picks. You'll save $50 off the street price on a product that barely budges from the $500 mark. This is the first deal we've posted on this smartphone our guide on the topic was updated just this week.

The Nexus 6P is the phablet pick in our guide on the best Android phones. Ryan Whitwam said, "If you like big phones and don't mind paying $500 up front, you should get the Google Nexus 6P. It's our favorite Android phone of any we've used this year. The 6P runs pure Android 6.0 Marshmallow, sports a top-of-the-line 1440p Super AMOLED screen, and has an attractive unibody aluminum frame. On the back is one of the best cameras available on a smartphone, along with a Nexus Imprint fingerprint scanner that's even faster and more accurate than the one on the Galaxy S6."

Samsung UN40J5500 40-Inch 1080p Smart LED TV

Street Price: $450; MSRP: $750; Deal Price: $384

This deal isn't quite as good as the one we saw on Black Friday, falling $16 short of the lowest price. It's still a good deal because it's the only other time we've seen it drop below $400.

The Samsung UN40J5500 is the better color/streaming pick in our guide on the best $500 TV. When comparing to our main pick, Chris Heinonen said, "It is only 40 inches instead of 43 and has a 1080p image instead of Ultra HD. It offers a more accurate image than the Vizio in terms of color and color temperature, but without the ultra dark blacks the Vizio can produce."

Deals change all the time, and some of these may have expired. To see an updated list of current deals, please go to The Wirecutter.com.
