Amazon is about to close the books on this year’s Prime Day deals extravaganza, and since this sale attracts a horde of shoppers in search of Black Friday-level discounts, it’s no surprise to see other retailers getting in on the action too. Walmart’s Prime Day sale, dubbed the “Deals for Days” event, is one such blowout, and one of the hottest bargains on offer right now is this deep $80 price cut on the superb Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2. If you’ve been looking to join the smartwatch revolution and want a classically styled piece that’s as smart as it looks, keep reading.

Despite the early hype surrounding the concept of “a smartphone for your wrist,” most people were understandably skeptical of smartwatches when they first came onto the scene. That changed with the Apple Watch, which not only became the most popular smartwatch in existence but made Apple one of the largest watchmakers in the world almost overnight. It was a good while, however, before Android users got anything comparable to Apple’s offering, and not for lack of companies trying (and failing) to match that success.

It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that Samsung, as the king of the Android smartphone world, would be the one to finally crack that nut with its line of Galaxy smartwatches. In fact, in our Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 review, our team all but declared that this is the Apple Watch for non-iPhone users owing to its sleek design, sturdy build quality, great set of features, always-on display, and generous battery life. The Galaxy Watch Active 2 (as its name suggests) is marketed as a fitness wearable, and while it packs an excellent suite of health- and activity-tracking functions, its classically inspired 40mm case and a great selection of apps also make it a superb all-around smartwatch that you can wear all day.

It’s priced pretty reasonably, too — quite a bit cheaper than the flagship Apple Watch Series 6 — with a sticker cost of $279. But for the Walmart Deals for Days sale, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 can be yours for just $199, saving you 80 bucks. That’s a pretty sweet bargain and one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen for what might be our favorite flagship smart wearable that’s not an Apple Watch (and one that’s much more affordable).

While early Memorial Day tablet deals cover a lot of ground, if you're interest in Galaxy Tab products, these are the best Memorial Day sales that we're seeing at this time. Many of these deals come straight from the pages of the best Samsung tablets, in case you want to make a comparison shop. Note that the S9 FE is less costly that the S8's in the list, as it is a paired down machine in terms of power. Of all of the Galaxy Tab products available in the early Memorial Day deals that we've uncovered so far, the most powerful is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra, which is a fantastic screen but a bit expensive to buy at regular price. In other words, now is the time to grab it if you ever will. Also, while this isn't true for all of the models listed below, if you aren't happy with the initial configuration of the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra (maybe you want more RAM or storage) you can feel free to poke around the options quite a bit. Most of the other configurations are, at least at this time ahead of Memorial Day, on sale too.
