The Best Prime Day smartwatch deals for 2020: The best deals still live

Despite Prime Day having officially ended, there are still some amazing Amazon Prime Day deals on smartwatches, and we’ve got all the best deals right here. The days when folks puzzled over why they needed a smartwatch when they already had a smartphone in their pocket are gone — and there are plenty of advantages to wearing a wrist-based computing device, from tracking your fitness to receiving calls and texts.

You’ll find many smartwatches are compatible with either the iPhone or Android operating systems — but make sure to check before you buy. The latest three generations of the Apple Watch, for example, are only compatible with Apple’s iPhone range, and they’re a go-to for those using iOS. Prefer Android phones, or simply don’t want an Apple Watch? There are plenty of choices for you, too, including watches compatible with Samsung, Google, LG, and other phones that run on Android.

Below are the best smartwatch deals we’ve found so far. You can also take a look at our list of Prime Day Apple Watch deals, Garmin fitness watch sales, and Prime Day Samsung Galaxy Watch deals to find your perfect deal.

Should I shop on Prime Day or wait until Black Friday?

With Black Friday only a month after Prime Day this year, it’s possible Amazon won’t see a second restock in time for Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales. Shoppers also run the chance of competing with more buyers on Black Friday and then putting up with hefty shipping delays. If you’re worried about these smartwatches seeing a bigger discount for Black Friday, rest easy. We don’t anticipate prices varying by much between these two events. Get a jump on your holiday shopping this year and shop these Prime Day smartwatch deals instead of waiting until late November to get spending. But don’t forget, today is the last day to get these amazing Prime Day discounts!

Are any Prime Day smartwatch deals too good to be true?

Before you start shopping for a new smartwatch, make sure to put in a little research beforehand. Check to see the different brand offerings and the type of features you want. Also, spend some time checking out the different reviews and ratings of your chosen smartwatch. When looking for smartwatch bands or any other accessories always stick to name brands and brands that you’ve heard of before. Never jump too quickly on a heavily discounted product before putting in some research — if a deal seems suspicious, there’s probably a reason.

Prime Day Smartwatch Deals

How to choose a smartwatch in 2020

There are a lot of great smartwatches on the market and if you’re a smartwatch newbie, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed by all of the options out there. Here are a few things to keep in mind while you shop these Prime Day smartwatch deals.

Operating system: The most important aspect of buying a new smartwatch is to make sure it’s compatible with your smartphone. With compatibility, you can answer texts and calls straight from your watch. That said, not every smartwatch is compatible with every mobile device. Apple Watches only pair with iOS devices. Wear OS smartwatches on the other hand work with both Android and Apple devices, albeit with some limitations. Tizen smartwatches like the Samsung Galaxy Watch also pair well with iPhones and other Android devices, as well as Samsung’s own Galaxy phones.

Style: Most smartwatches have interchangeable bands so you can select the style you want. The Apple Watch Series 6 offers tons of options from leather bands to woven sport bands. The Fitbit Versa 2 also has a couple of different sport band options. So, if presentation or style is something that does matter to you, make sure to check all the available bands and casing styles of your chosen smartwatch before you commit.

Always-on display: If you’re a traditionalist you’re going to need a watch with an always-on display to mimic your regular watch. It’s important to note that not all smartwatches have an always-on display (any Apple Watch before the Series 4 and the recently released Apple Watch SE doesn’t) so if that’s important to you, make sure to check if your smartwatch carries this feature.

Battery life: This is a big one. If you don’t want the hassle of charging your watch every night, you need a smartwatch that has a battery life that lasts days, not hours. The Fitbit Versa 2 for example, has a battery life of about five days while the newest Apple Watch Series 6 only has a battery life of about 18 hours.

Fitness tracker: Most active users are probably looking for a watch that’s both sweat and water-resistant, as well as doing a decent job of counting calories burned and measuring heart rate. Though most smartwatches have basic fitness trackers, some smartwatches are better at this than others. If you can afford to spend a little bit more, look for a watch that offers accurate fitness tracking, can measure ECG, has an in-built GPS, and has fall detection.

The last thing to keep in mind is the price of your new watch. If you need all of the above features, be prepared to spend upwards of $300. However, if you’re willing to compromise, there are a ton of smartwatches, like the Apple Watch Series 3 or the Fitbit Versa Lite, priced well below $200.

However, if for any reason you miss these deals, there are always Black Friday Apple Watch deals to look forward to.
