The rise of Amazon from a bookseller to one of the world’s biggest retail companies is one of the business world’s biggest success stories. The giant, which began life in owner Jeff Bezos’ garage (now among the richest men in the world), now offers almost every household product under the sun, as well as music, fresh grocery, reading and video content through its spin-off arms. Another area that’s continually evolving, developing and dropping new products is its in-house tech line.  

Amazon’s gadgets, from Echo displays to Ring video doorbells, dominate the home and personal tech world.

The items are likely to feature in Amazon’s Prime Day sale, a two-day event spanning June 21 - 22. The mega sale takes place annually, and this year is shaping up to be its biggest yet, with two million deals on offer globally. You can only take advantage of the offers if you’re signed up to Amazon’s Prime service though. It costs £79 a year, or you can choose to pay slightly more on a monthly basis at £7.99 a month, which may be easier to budget rather than one lump sum. 

As well as deep discounts on TVs, mattresses, home and garden essentials, gaming and beauty, Amazon usually lays on a generous buffet of discounts on its own tech. If you’ve been biding your time to snap up a Fire TV stick, or waiting for an incredible deal on Amazon’s Fire home security devices, the Prime Day sales offer an opportunity to pounce. 

There are quite a few products in Amazon’s line-up, so here’s a run-down of all the own-brand tech the global retailer has under its sizeable belt, plus what they do and the discounts on offer now:
