If chunky smartwatches aren’t your thing, the slim, lightweight style of the Vivosmart 4 can be yours for $41 off right now. Available in Midnight with a black band, this sleek fitness tracker boasts a battery life of up to seven days, and you can wear it in the shower or while swimming. What it lacks in size it more than makes up for in features, with smart notifications, a wrist-based heart rate monitor, pulse oximeter sensor, and the ability to connect to your phone’s GPS for tracking your morning run or walk. You’ll also find a bunch of dedicated activity timers for specific activities like strength training or yoga.

Heavy on features, light on form, the slim, lightweight Garmin Forerunner 35 is ideal for runners. With $57 off the black version right now, it’s the perfect time to invest in a smartwatch that will up your running game this fall. There’s built-in GPS to track your runs, and you don’t need to pair this watch with your smartphone as it automatically uploads data to Garmin Connect, Garmin’s free online fitness community, where you can set goals and track your progress. It’s water-resistant and offers all-day activity tracking, counting steps and calories and monitoring your heart rate — as well as providing music controls so you’ll always have the perfect soundtrack to your run. The Forerunner is great for cyclists, too, as it can connect to ANT+ cadence sensors and heart rate monitoring chest straps.

For outdoors enthusiasts we’ve got a great deal on the already affordable Garmin Instinct, with $71 off the Graphite version right now. This rugged watch is aimed at hikers, walkers, and runners, with support for GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo to keep you on the right track, as well as a built-in 3-axis compass and barometric altimeter. The 45mm watch casing and soft silicone band are comfortable to wear, and the watch is water-resistant to 100 meters. We love the Trackback feature, that makes it easy to navigate the same route back to where you started, along with the fact it offers superior battery life of up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, up to 16 hours in GPS mode, and up to 40 hours in UltraTrack battery saver mode. This is one of the best deals you’re going to find on an outdoor watch before Prime Day, so don’t miss out.

The 45mm Garmin Vivoactive 4 has always been one of our favorite fitness smartwatches, and with $54 off right now, there’s no better time to buy one. It comes with 20 preloaded GPS and indoor sports apps, and it tracks your energy levels, menstrual cycle, stress, respiration, hydration, sleep, heart rate, and Pulse Ox. You can enjoy your own workout soundtrack by downloading playlists from Deezer, Amazon Music, or Spotify, so you’ll always be motivated for your morning run or yoga session, and there are handy safety and tracking features, including incident detection and assistance which, when paired with a compatible device, sends your location to friends or family, keeping you safe while you get fit. We love the animated workouts that help you ensure your technique is right, from yoga and Pilates to cardio. You won’t find yourself constantly charging this watch either, as it offers up to eight days of battery life in smartwatch mode and up to six hours in GPS and music mode.

Amazon Prime Video free trial: Stream for a month for free
The Amazon Prime Video app icon on Roku.

If you've ever shopped on Amazon -- and these days, who hasn't? -- then you've likely heard about the option for an Amazon Prime membership. This subscription is mostly touted as a way to save on shipping costs when purchasing from Amazon, but it also comes bundled with some other handy features including access to Amazon's streaming service, Amazon Prime Video. You'll find a range of movies and shows to watch, but if you're not sure whether you need yet another streaming service, there is an option for a free trial to see if you like the service before paying for it.
Is there an Amazon Prime Video free trial?
There is indeed an Amazon Prime Video free trial, but it's tied into the Prime free trial, which lasts for a month and may or may not be available to you. To see if you're eligible, you'll need to and check. The general rule is that the Prime free trial (and by extension, an Amazon Prime Video free trial) is available to Amazon accounts that have either never signed up for a Prime trial or have not had Prime -- either a trial or paid membership -- any time in the last 12 months.

The Prime free trial is usually for 30 days, similar to the Hulu free trial. If you're not eligible for the Amazon Prime Video free trial, though, then be patient: Sometimes, Amazon will sometimes offer free trials to its loyal customers, so if you have an Amazon account (but not a Prime membership) and shop on the site regularly, you might find a Prime trial offer sitting in your inbox one day. Often, though, these are shorter seven- or 14-day trials rather than the 30-day trial. Nonetheless, it's obvious that Amazon is a bit more generous with these trial periods than other services -- there's no Disney+ free trial or Netflix free trial, for example, but it's thankfully much easier to get an Amazon Prime Video free trial.
