Prime Day is over, but you can still take advantage of these fitness tracker deals
Prime Day ended on October 12, but there are still a handful of fitness tracker deals worth considering
Amazon Prime Day has officially ended, with most deals wrapping up on October 12. However, there are still some fitness tracker deals that you might want to consider — especially if there's a model below that you've been eyeing up for a while.
For example, the Fitbit Charge 5 (which we named among the best fitness trackers after putting it to the test) can now be bought for just $125.12, which is £20 cheaper than usual. Or, if you regularly lace up your running shoes, you might want to consider the Garmin Forerunner 735XT which has plummeted in price from $349.99 to just $178.99.
Amazon's October sale event — called the "Prime Early Access Sale" — was the online retail behemoth's second major discount event of the year (after Amazon Prime Day in July). Lasting 48 hours across October 11 and 12, it involved opening up hefty discounts to Amazon Prime members before anyone else.
Here are the discounts that are still available.
Fitness tracker deals
Garmin Vivoactive 4 |
$329.99 | $199.00
There’s a massive 39% to be saved on this very capable smartwatch and fitness tracker that monitors respiration, menstrual cycle, stress, sleep, estimated heart rate, hydration and more. It can also play playlists from playlists from Spotify, Amazon Music, or Deezer and comes preloaded with 20 GPS and indoor sports apps.
Garmin Forerunner 245 Music |
$349.99 | $219
This is another incredibly low price on Amazon, with the Garmin Forerunner retailing for nearly $135 less than usual. Garmin makes some of the most high-spec, super-durable running watches on the market and this is an all-time fan favorite, with in-depth tracking features that can genuinely help you improve your running times.
Garmin Forerunner 955 |
$499 | $440.14
We were really impressed with this watch when we tested it out earlier this year. It’s a recently released model, so it’s a pleasant surprise to see it already discounted. Garmin have used a plastic case on the watch to cut costs, but you still get lots of high-end features like super-accurate GPS and downloadable maps on this model.
Garmin Fenix 6S |
$549.99 | $499.99
The Garmin Fenix 6 topped our list of the best running watches for most of last year, only recently bumped out of the top spot by the Garmin Fenix 7. But it’s a beautiful watch; it has brilliantly accurate heart rate monitoring and can even calculate your VO2 max. It’s downloadable map feature also makes it perfect for adventures conducted off the beaten path.
Prime Early Access Fitbit deals
Fitbit Charge 5|
$187.99 | $125.12.
The sale has slashed the price of this great fitness tracker by 17%. The Charge 5 offers a fully featured health metrics dashboard and GPD along with a battery life of 7 days. It comes in a choice of three colours and with a range of customizable bands for added style.
Fitbit Inspire 2 |
$99.95 | $56.00
This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen on the Fitbit Inspire 2, which is one of our favorite models from the company. At under $60, you can consider this a truly budget-price tracker, but it still packs in Fitbit’s excellent sleep-tracking tech, heart-rate monitoring and on-wrist notifications.
Fitbit Versa 3 |
$229.95 | $148.95
There’s a hefty discount on this older-version of the Fitbit Versa, which has just been superseded by the Fitbit Versa 4. Despite this, it’s still an excellent, up-to-date bit of tech that has a brilliant display and all the health-tracking features you could need.
Fitbit Sense |
$299.95 | $178.95
The Fitbit Sense tops our list of the best Fitbits available right now. It’s stylish, with a large, easy-to-read display, and it offers a ‘stress sensing’ EDA feature, which is something completely unique to Fitbit. On top of that, it has a respectable six-day battery and all of the other standard health tracking features available.
Prime Early Access Apple Watch deals
Apple Watch Series 8 |
$399 | $349
Very possibly the best fitness tracker you can buy right now gets a discount in the Prime Early Access Sale. It boasts excellent accuracy for health tracking and sports monitoring making it a great choice for all levels of fitness fanatics. This latest model comes with temperature monitoring and crash detection too.
Apple Watch Series 7 |
$429 | $297.59
The Apple Watch Series 7 has unbeatable accuracy when it comes to heart beat tracking. It's also packed with useful apps, unlike some other trackers. While we have seen it fall to below $330 before, this is still a great deal — and it might be the best one we get before the end of this year sale's event. Although, this discounted model is actually more expensive than its recently released successor, above.
