With so many deals disappearing after Cyber Monday, it can be hard to keep track of all of thee limited-time offers are still available. But we’ve got you covered when it comes to the best smartwatch discounts today. Right now, Amazon is dropping price cuts on the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 for the Samsung Cyber Week sale. We’ve also found a last-minute deal on the Apple Watch Series 5 going on today if you’re more of an iOS fan.

This Samsung smartwatch deal is just one of the many wearable discounts the retail giant is offering right now.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 — $249 ($51 off)

We reviewed the Galaxy Watch Active 2 earlier this year and deemed it one of the best Apple Watch alternatives you can buy. If you’re an Android user, this is definitely a smartwatch you should look into buying. With comprehensive and expansive exercise tracking and LTE compatibility bring it closer to the Apple Watch Series 5, and the ability to scroll through Twitter on it is an added bonus.

Where this Samsung Watch really shines, however, is with how it looks. It’s slimmer, more comfortable, and more attractive than some of the previous models like the Gear S3. With the Cyber Week discount going on right now, you can get a great price on one of the best Android smartwatches on the market today.

More Samsung smartwatch deals still available

Looking for even more smartwatch deals this Cyber Week? We’ve gathered a few of the best discounts still going on. If you’re after something more budget-friendly, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is really cheap right now.

  • Samsung Galaxy Watch ($40 off): You can probably tell by the name, but this is more or less the standard Samsung smartwatch. It comes at a similar price as the Active 2, but with a totally different aesthetic.
  • Samsung Galaxy Watch Active ($108 off): Though it’s a previous generation smartwatch, it’s still one of the good ones. It may not come with a scrollable Twitter feed, but at $100 less than the newest model, it’s very affordable.
  • Samsung Gear Sport ($106 off): The Gear sport isn’t nearly as new as the other models on this list, but it was built for activity. With water resistance, fitness tracking, and Android and iOS compatibility, it’s worth a look.

Galaxy S22 release date rumored for January; Samsung misses 2021 sales targets
Person holding the Samsung Galaxy s21 in purple lighting.

Samsung might be releasing the Galaxy S22 in January as opposed to March, when Mobile World Congress takes place. The company initially shifted its launch of the Galaxy S21 to January earlier this year, and now a new report from The Elec hints that this change might not be temporary.

The report claims that Samsung is already planning to ship the S22 in January, with a mass production ramp-up in November. Rumors around the S22 have already begun to trickle out, indicating a refined S21 more than a generational leap. The biggest change is reported to be Samsung fitting what is essentially the S21 Ultra's zoom camera on all the S22 variants, a change that would give the entire S22-series one of the best Android camera phones on the market, rather than just the Ultra.

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 might turn out to be sales hits
Samsung Galaxy folding phones.

Samsung has yet to release the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 to the public, but reports from Korea indicate that, based on pre-orders, they may be more of a hit than the company's more mainstream models. Both foldables are said to be on the path to reaching 800,000 units, according to a report from the Korea Herald. Samsung also confirms that in just 10 days, the pre-orders have already surpassed total global Samsung foldable sales for all of 2021. It's the strongest pre-order for Samsung foldables ever.

As of Sunday, August 22, both foldables are currently reported to have a combined 450,000 pre-orders. Even accounting for the combination of numbers, this is a huge leap from the Galaxy Z Fold 2, which landed at 80,000 total. That pre-order number is reportedly twice that of the Galaxy S21 and 1.5 times more than the Galaxy Note 20. The current understanding is that they could reach 600, 000 total pre-orders, with the number rising to 800,000 with the inclusion of unlocked models. If the trends continue with post-release sales, then the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold and Flip could effectively outperform the Galaxy Note line in total sales, which would prove Samsung's decision to refocus on its foldables this year as a solid choice.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 vs. Galaxy Watch 4 Classic
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic and Watch 4 side-by-side.

As good as they are, you may have been left scratching your head by the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. Normally, there are significant differences between different models in the same device range, but in this case, the differences are mostly cosmetic. The Watch 4 Classic retains the tried-and-true design of the Galaxy Watch 3, which, in contrast to most Apple Watches, more closely resembles a traditional watch. But the Galaxy Watch 4 goes for a sleeker, more modern look, which sits somewhere in the middle between its stablemate and something you might find on the Starship Enterprise.

However, there are a few more differences between the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic than how they look. We run through them in this head-to-head comparison article, and we also attempt to decide which is the better smartwatch overall.
