Amazon Black Friday is here, and if you’re considering a new smartwatch or fitness tracker, it’s time to review some deals. Here is a list of smartwatch and smartband deals from Amazon US, Amazon UK and Amazon DE.
Kicking off the smartwatch list is Apple’s top dog – Apple Watch Ultra. Sure, it costs a pretty penny, but you get a proper rugged smartwatch with all the bells and whistles Cupertino offers, and it’s a few bucks less than its usual price. Apple doesn’t like deep discounts.
The next step is the Apple Watch Series 8 Aluminum starting at $449 / £509 / €569 for the 41mm version (GPS + cellular) while the 45mm costs $479 / £529 / €609. Apple has been refining its watch series for years, and the eighth iteration brings all the expected health and sports tracking features, along with the new temperature sensor, collision detection feature, and a low power mode.
Next up is a Wear OS entry – the Pixel Watch from Google. It’s one of the sleekest and most unique smartwatches out there, and it definitely has that premium feel. We liked the Wear OS 3.5 operating system and the improved fitness tracking via Google Fit, however, like all first-gen products, the Pixel Watch falls short in some areas, especially battery life. drums. Nonetheless, it’s a great companion for any Android phone, especially if you’re a Pixel phone user.
Samsung offers a bunch of watches and Galaxy Watch5 Pro is the latest and greatest. The LTE-equipped model costs $429 / £429 / €392 depending on your market. You have the full-fledged Wear OS 3.5 experience with the added One UI Watch overlay on top. The build is top of the line with sapphire crystal and a titanium case, and there’s advanced health tracking including BMI readings and ECG monitoring.
The standard Galaxy5 watch is another option to consider. It comes in 40mm and 44m sizes and runs the same Wear OS 3.5 operating system with One UI Watch on top, just like the Pro model, but with less premium aluminum watch cases and straps as well as smaller batteries.
The older generation Watch4 is also offered with the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic and Galaxy Watch4 models. Watch4 Classic has the fan-favorite rotating bezel while Watch4 is a great option at its budget price with most of the health and fitness tracking features of the Watch5 series.
If the Pixel Watch is too small and you’re not a fan of Samsung’s One UI 4.5, there’s the Fossil Gen 6, which also boots Wear OS (the older version), although an update to Wear OS 3 is available. This is a solidly built premium watch with a capable operating system and all the health and activity tracking features you could ask for.
by Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro is a great alternative to the Wear OS crowd, and it’s £249/€279. You get flagship build quality with sapphire crystal glass and a titanium frame plus 10+ days of battery life with most health and activity tracking enabled – something you don’t see not on Wear OS competitors.
We’ve also rounded up a few Garmin watches for those who take their running and sports tracking seriously. The last Garmin Fenix 7 the model is down to $599.99 / £499.99 / €568.36. It brings 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 precise details. There’s 16GB of storage as well as NFC with support for Garmin Pay.
The Garmin Fenix 6 Pro is another option to consider. You get Garmin’s extensive sports tracking features, plus built-in Wi-Fi, GPS, sleep tracking and NFC, all with up to two weeks of battery life on a single charge.
The Garmin Forerunner 245 Music Edition is an even more affordable option in the world of high-level fitness tracking. The added benefit of music editing is that you get music streaming with native 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 some cases, smartbands are a great alternative with most health and sports tracking features at a fraction of the price.
Fitbit Charge 5 is one of those options 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 great smart wearables and the Amazfit Band 7 is 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 5ATM water resistance.
Amazfit GTS 4 Mini is another great option to consider at $89.99 / £89. You get all the extra benefits of the Band7, but with a roomier AMOLED display and 15-day battery life.
