The Garmin Fenix 5 is a multisport fitness watch, built almost entirely for use with just about any indoor or outdoor activity you can think of. Whether you’re swimming, hiking, biking, or climbing, the Fenix 5 can go wherever you go.

It also comes with a heart rate monitor, along with a full suite of standard activity-tracking features (collecting metrics like distance, calories burned, etc.), and syncs with the Garmin companion app for long-term health monitoring. (Read our full review on the Garmin Fenix 5 here.)

Fitbit Versa Smart Watch, Ice Gray — $50 off

rei sale garmin fitbit gopro versa smart watch

From a distance, it’s easy to mistake the Versa for the Apple Watch. Up close, though, the Versa looks a little better thanks to its chamfered edges. The Versa fits well on all wrists — male and female — and it’s the perfect in-between size that doesn’t look too big on women or too small on men. The Versa comes packed with a variety of smartwatch features, as well as the company’s signature fitness tracking capabilities. Offering notifications which alert users to text messages, app updates, phone calls, and calendar alerts, among others, wearers will have quick access to the goings-on in their smartphone without needing to reach for their pocket. (read our full review on the Fitbit Versa here.)

Get it now at REI for $150. That’s $50 off the listed price.

GoPro HERO7 White Action Camera — $20 off

rei sale garmin fitbit gopro hero7 white

The best part of any GoPro are the features that come with it. This standard Hero7 may not come with 4K capabilities, but if you’re OK with 1080p, it’s still a really awesome action cam. With waterproofing, an intuitive touchscreen, Full HD videos, and 10mp photos, you really can’t go wrong. If you’re worried about shaky footage coming out the other side, this GoPro comes with video stabilization for recording smooth and steady video no matter what you’re doing.

Normally priced at $200, a $20 discount from REI drops the price to $180.
