Apple Watch and Fitbit Versa smartwatches get price cuts for Labor Day

Though Labor Day weekend is still a few days away, many of the best Labor Day sales have already arrived. Walmart, Dell, Lenovo, and HP have offered up some pretty substantial savings as we head into the holiday weekend. REI has also dropped its own massive sale, offering steep discounts on a variety of Suunto and Garmin smartwatches for the great outdoors. However, if you’re looking specifically for Fitbit and Apple Watch deals, the Amazon Labor Day sale is probably your best bet for savings.

Amazon’s sale is a bit more widespread than many of the smaller retailers. Without a central hub on the site for the best discounts, you really need to know what it is you’re looking going in. When it comes to smartwatch deals, though, there are almost always price cuts to be had. Right now, the retail giant is offering some decent savings on the Apple Watch Series 3 and Fitbit Versa smartwatches.

Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) — $150 off

If you’re already a fan of Apple products, there’s really only one smartwatch you should have your eye on — the Apple Watch. While the Series 3 isn’t as powerful as the Series 4, it is still one of the best smartwatches on the market. With activity tracking, optical heart sensor, and the S3 dual-core processor, it certainly doesn’t lack features. The standard Apple Watch Series 3 can connect to your smartphone to give you text, call, and app notifications directly to your wrist. This particular model, however, takes it a step further by connecting directly to the network so you don’t need to be near your phone to access its full suite of features.

Normally priced at $379, the 38mm model is on sale for just $229 right now. This discount does come with a catch, though. This model is currently out of stock until September 29, so you’d have to wait a month before you can slap it on your wrist. Alternatively, you can get the regular GPS version for the same price.

Fitbit Versa — $30 off

While not quite as popular as the Apple Watch, the Versa offers many of the same features at a much lower price point. Activity tracking, smartphone notifications, and 15 different exercise modes make it a lot more fitness-focused than many traditional options on the market. Unlike the Series 3 above, the Fitbit Versa does not come with built-in GPS. However, it does allow you to store and play up to 300 songs directly from your wrist and utilized on-screen workouts.

Normally priced at $200, the Fitbit Versa is down to just $170 on Amazon. You can also pick up the Lite edition for $20 less if you want a stripped-down version.

More Smartwatch Deals

Like any good sale, Amazon’s smartwatch deals aren’t just limited to these two options. If you’re looking for something a little bit more fashion-forward or rugged, there are plenty of savings to go around. We’ve gathered the best discounts available right now and piled them conveniently below.

  • Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch — $41 off
  • Fossil Men’s Gen 4 Explorist — $96 off

Dell XPS 13 -- $599, was $799

We described the Dell XPS 13 as the "true answer to the MacBook Air" thanks to its great design and excellent specs. Dell is one of the best laptop brands around and this system demonstrates why. You get a 12th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory and 256GB of SSD storage. Such specs are just right for being able to work productively on the move or from your home office. There's also an attractive 13.4-inch full HD+ screen with a 1920 x 1200 resolution and 500 nits of brightness. It's Dell's thinnest and lightest 13-inch XPS yet while still offering up to 12 hours of battery life which should suit most people. Other useful features include bigger internal speakers compared to previous models, along with a minimalist design and a dual-sensor camera that makes it easy to log in with Windows Hello compared to usual methods. It's a reliable laptop all around.

iPhone 12 in purple.

If you were planning to buy an iPhone from this year's Labor Day sales but you missed them for any reason, don't worry because some iPhone deals are still online. For example, the 64GB model of the unlocked Apple iPhone 12 remains available for $555 from Best Buy, for a discount of $75 on its sticker price of $630. We're not sure how much time you've got left to take advantage of this offer though -- it could disappear at any moment -- so if you're interested, you shouldn't hold yourself back from pushing through with the purchase.

Why you should buy the Apple iPhone 12
The Apple iPhone 12 isn't the latest model the popular smartphone -- it's the Apple iPhone 14, and very soon, it will be the Apple iPhone 15. However, that doesn't mean that the iPhone 12 is no longer a worthy purchase, as Apple's A14 Bionic chip still provides smooth performance by today's standards. It ships with iOS 14 pre-installed, but you can update it to iOS 17 so that you can enjoy all of the features of the newest version of the operating system.
