Presidents Day might be here, but that doesn’t mean you’re out of time to take advantage of some great deals at top retailers. We’ve seen a few great deals over the past week on top smartwatches from a variety of manufacturers on Amazon, and we’ve rounded them up for you below.
Now with the holiday almost over, we recommend that you take advantage of these deals as soon as possible. While some of these deals might still be around after Presidents Day is over, there are no guarantees. Let’s get started.
Apple Watch Series 3 GPS+Cellular – $220
Apple is still selling the Series 3 GPS Apple Watch starting at $199 brand new, but we think you should instead consider purchasing anversion instead. It’s only $31 more and offers you cellular connectivity that makes this watch so much more useful. But that’s not all the Series 3 GPS+Cellular is good for. It’s a wonderful health and fitness tracker with a wide variety of sensors, including a heart rate monitor, accelerometer, and gyroscope. It tracks a multitude of activities, like walking, running, swimming, and cycling too. If you stay sedentary for too long, it gently reminds you to get up and move around. The Breathe mindfulness feature reminds you to take a moment to breathe, and all these important metrics recorded in the Activity app.
This particular Apple Watch model comes with the Sports Loop, a simple rubberized hook-and-eye strap that works well with most wrists. Of course, if you get sick of this band, you can always replace it with other straps, which come in a variety of styles, colors, and even materials. At only $220, it’s a great deal.
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 – starting at $245
If you’re more of an Android fan, you’d be crazy not to consider the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2,for as little as $245, 50% off its normal retail price. While a fitness-focused wearable, the Galaxy Watch Active2 is more stylish and sporty, allowing you to wear it at both the gym and in the office. A neat “My Style” feature can use selfies from your phone to customize the watch face to match your outfit, and its round face and comfortable bands look good on both small and large wrists.
As the name suggests, the health and fitness tracking functionality of this watch is its standout feature. You can monitor blood pressure, stress levels, sleep patterns, and heart rate, and built-in exercise tracking lets you track various activities manually or automatically. Like the Apple Watch, it also reminds you to move, so there’s no stopping this smartwatch from helping you achieve your fitness goals.
If you act quickly, you will be able to snag an outstanding deal on Amazon’s remaining stock of thefor just $99. That’s 76% off the normal retail price of $275! Don’t wait too long, though: Amazon’s sold out of just about every color since we first highlighted this deal last week. The Sport is perfect for small wrists with a 41mm case that is 40% lighter than competing models, yet was still able to fit a bright 1.2-inch digital OLED display within it that does well in just about any situation outside of direct sunlight in our tests.
With its focus on fitness, the Fossil Sport has built-in GPS, a heart rate monitor, and water resistance of 5ATM that makes it swim-proof. You can track distance traveled, fine-tune workouts according to your beats per minute, and even keep tabs on steps and calories burnt. All data is sent to the Google Fit app along with health coaching and goal-setting in the form of Move minutes and Heart Points. Using Google’s Wear OS, this watch works best with Android phones, and battery life gives you a full day of use without having to charge it — something Apple Watches have only recently been able to do.
