Amazon Black Friday is here, and if you’ve been eyeing a new smartwatch or fitness tracker, it’s time to browse some deals. Here is a list of smartwatch and smartband deals from across Amazon US, Amazon UK, and Amazon DE.
Kicking off list of smartwatches is Apple’s best dog Apple Watch Ultra. Sure, it costs a cent or a euro cent, but you’re getting a decent rugged smartwatch with all the bells and whistles Cupertino has to offer, and it’s only a few dollars off its regular price. Apple is not a fan of sharp cuts.
Next is Apple Watch Series 8 aluminium Starting at $449 / £509 / €569 for the 41mm version (GPS + Cellular) while the 45mm is $479 / £529 / €609. Apple has been improving its Watch series for years, and the eighth version offers all the expected health and sports tracking features along with a new temperature sensor, crash detection, and a low power mode.
Next is the entry for Wear OS – File pixel clock from Google. This is one of the most stylish and unique smartwatches around, and it definitely has that premium feel. We liked the speedy Wear OS 3.5 system and improved fitness tracking via Google Fit, though the Pixel Watch, like all first-generation products, falls short in some areas — especially battery life. However, it makes an excellent companion for any Android phone, especially if you’re a Pixel phone user.
Samsung has a bunch of watches on display and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro It is the latest and greatest. The LTE-equipped model comes in at $429 / £429 / €392 depending on your market. You have the full Wear OS 3.5 experience with the added One UI Watch overlay on top. The design is top of the line with sapphire glass and a titanium case, and there’s some advanced health tracking, including BMI readings and EKG monitoring.
standard Galaxy Watch 5 is another option to consider. It comes in 40mm and 44mm sizes and runs the same Wear OS 3.5 with One Watch UI on top as the Pro model although it has fewer aluminum cases and watch bands as well as smaller batteries.
Older Watch4 generation is also available with Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic And the Galaxy Watch 4 Models. The Watch4 Classic has a fan-favorite rotating bezel while the Watch4 is an excellent low-priced option with most of the Watch5 series’ health and fitness tracking features.
If your Pixel Watch is too small and you’re not a fan of Samsung’s One UI 4.5, there’s a Fossil Gen 6which also runs Wear OS (the old version), though an update to Wear OS 3 is available. This is an excellent, premium watch with a capable OS and all the health and activity tracking features you could ask for.
Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro is a great alternative for the Wear OS crowd, and it’s down to £249 / €279. You’re getting class-leading build quality with sapphire crystal glass and a titanium frame along with over 10 days of battery life with most health and activity tracking turned on — something you don’t see on Wear OS competitors.
We’ve also rounded up a few Garmin watches for those who take running and sports tracking seriously. Last Garmin Fenix 7 The model is down to $599.99 / £499.99 / €568.36. It provides the ultimate sports and activity tracking experience with detailed tracking metrics for running, cycling, skiing, swimming, golf, and strength training, among others.
All Fenix 7 smartwatches support all GNSS positioning standards, including L5, for more accurate detail. There is 16GB of storage as well as NFC with Garmin Pay support.
The Garmin Fenix 6 Pro is another option to consider. You get Garmin’s comprehensive sports tracking features, plus built-in WiFi, GPS, sleep tracking, and NFC, all with up to two weeks of battery life on a single charge.
The Garmin Forerunner 245 Music Edition It is a more affordable option in the world of top notch fitness tracking. The added benefit of the Music Edition is that you get music streaming with the original Spotify/Deezer and Amazon Music apps as well as local music storage (3.5GB), which can hold up to 500 songs on the watch.
While smartwatches are certainly useful companions to our smartphone or even replacements in certain situations, smartbands are a great alternative to most health and sports tracking features at a fraction of the price.
Fitbit Charge 5 One such option with a 1-inch OLED display, built-in GPS, and a sleek design. You also get a body temperature sensor and Fitbit’s premium health and fitness tracking options.
Amazfit makes some smart wearables and Amazfit band 7 A great option at $39.99 / €49.90. It offers a 1.47-inch AMOLED display, Amazon Alexa, sports tracking for over 120 activities, and 5 ATM water resistance.
Amazfit GTS 4 Mini It’s another great option to consider at $89.99 / £89. You get all the extra Band7 benefits but with a much more spacious AMOLED display and up to 15 days of battery life.
