Amazon Prime Day UK: 35 essential tech deals you won't want to miss

With Alexa-powered Echo Dots and futuristic smart bulbs, Amazon Prime Day has a packed selection of supercharged gadgets.

It's that time of year again. Amazon Prime Day – actually a two-day event – has arrived in 19 countries, meaning shoppers in the United Kingdom can sample a slew of technological wonders on the 13th and 14th of October.

The annual shopping event, which offers big savings to Amazon Prime subscribers, first kicked off in 2015. Although it received criticism in its early years for lackluster offerings, Amazon's shopping event has emerged as an ideal way to get big savings and discounts on Amazon-branded gadgets and related items. Looking for an Echo Dot to pop in the hallway? You've come to the right place.

The event has taken on new-found prominence as Amazon's smart home offerings have grown in popularity. While Jeff Bezos' firm first dipped its toes into gadgets with the Amazon Kindle – rather apt considering its bookshop roots – it's now connected home TVs with the Amazon Fire TV stick, provided multi-room music with the Amazon Echo, and can even tell you who's at the door with the Ring video doorbell.

Amazon's two-day shopping event comes hot on the heels of its recent hardware event, where it unveiled bold new products like the home security-focused Ring drone. With the retailer's two-day sale underway, here are some of the highlights you won't want to miss.
