Kate Spade, Fossil, and other women’s smartwatches get big price cuts

Smartwatches, originally a niche item for tech geeks, have come a long way. Today’s smart wearables are a far cry from the blocky, rubberized devices that you could spot on someone’s wrist from across the street. Fashion-forward brands like Kate Spade and Michael Kors have gotten in on the trend, offering their own smartwatches for women that combine classic aesthetics with modern smart capabilities. A number of them are on sale right now, too, so if you’re shopping for Mother’s Day gifts or just want to smarten up your own style game, we’ve rounded up the best deals below.

Kate Spade Scallop

Kate Spade Scallop 2 Smartwatch review

Kate Spade makes what might be our favorite of all of the smartwatches for women that are on the market today: the Scallop. With its round metal case and traditional-looking band options, the Kate Spade Scallop doesn’t scream “smartwatch,” but it’s packed with modern tech features including a large full-color touchscreen, smartphone connectivity (for sending messages and other notifications to your wrist), and activity tracking.

Android users can even reply to messages directly from the watch, and Google Assistant allows for voice control as well. The Scallop comes in a few different case and band color combos, and is on sale right now for as low as $192.50 on Amazon right now.

Fossil Q Venture HR

Fossil is one of the most prolific brands when it comes to classic-looking smartwatches, and its Q Venture HR is a perfect example of this design ethos. The Fossil Q Venture HR is the upgraded version of the original Q Venture, featuring the same great Wear OS-based smart capabilities along with a few improvements: Most notably, the Venture HR packs an added wrist sensor that monitors your heart rate, built-in GPS tracking, and NFC which allows for Google Pay, making this more feature-rich than most other fashion-focused smartwatches for women.

Walmart has the all-metal Fossil Q Venture HR on sale right now in a variety of colors (rose gold and silver, with or without the “glitz” diamond accents) for $199, saving you $75 off of its normal price tag.

Apple Watch Series 3

The Apple Watch Series 3 might be the least “stylish” wearable on our roundup, but since it’s arguably the best (and most popular) smartwatch on the market – and because it’s on sale right now in the wake of the Series 4 release – it deserves a spot on our list. Although it’s not as traditional-looking as our other picks, the Series 3 still boasts a sleek design with that classic Apple polish and aesthetic that makes it a fine option for wearers who don’t mind the more “techie” look. It’s also the best pick for iPhone users, as most Wear OS watches have more limited functionality with iOS devices.

Naturally, the Apple Watch Series 3 has a lot of superb smart features, too, from fitness tracking functions to its smooth and intuitive WatchOS software. Aside from its excellent build quality, this is really the main reason it has managed to dominate a market where other makers haven’t enjoyed as much success. An $80 savings means you can grab the Apple Watch Series 3 for just $199 right now.

Michael Kors Access Sofie

Michael Kors Access Sofie review
Brenda Stoylar/Digital Trends

Many smartwatches, even fashionable ones, look and feel a bit bulky and puck-like on the wrist due to the large LCD displays. If slim wrists have kept you away from these wearable gadgets, then the super-sleek Michael Kors Access Sofie might be the answer. This great-looking accessory doesn’t sacrifice style for utility, though: Its stainless steel case is thinner and lighter than most others, but under the hood, you’ve still got all of the convenience of a modern Wear OS smartwatch, including a color touchscreen, smartphone notifications, music playback, activity tracking, and more. (It does unfortunately lack a GPS, however.)

The Michael Kors Access Sofie isn’t just the best-looking model among these smartwatches for women (at least in the opinion of our review team), it’s also the best deal on our roundup: A juicy 43% discount knocks $151 off the price, letting you grab one in a variety of different colors for $199 ahead of Mother’s Day.

Apple Watch too expensive? The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is only $150
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 in white, in two sizes.

Are even the older models of the Apple Watch from smartwatch deals too expensive? You may want to consider going for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 if you want a wearable device while on a tight budget. From the 40mm version's original price of $200, it's down to a very affordable $150 following a $50 discount from Samsung. As this is a previous-generation smartwatch, we're not sure how much stock is left, so you'll have to push through with your purchase immediately if you don't want to lose your chance at this bargain.

Why you should buy the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 is the latest entry in Samsung's line of wearable devices, but the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 remains a pretty solid smartwatch up until today. It's very comfortable to wear, lasts up to two days on a single charge, and comes with an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, which are important if you're going to maximize its comprehensive fitness and health-tracking features. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 also offers seamless pairing with Samsung devices, so it's perfect if you're also using a Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

If you have a Samsung TV, buy a Q-Series soundbar in this sale
The Samsung Q-Series 11.1.4-channel surround sound system set up in a luxurious living room.

If you got a Samsung TV with a discount from TV deals, you're surely going to enjoy a magnificent display. However, if you think the audio is lacking, that's because there's not enough space to fit premium speakers. It's highly recommended that you also invest in a Samsung Q-Series soundbar to access the fantastic Q-Symphony feature and create the perfect home theater system. These soundbars don't come cheap, but fortunately, Samsung slashed their prices. For example, the Samsung Q990C 11.1.4-channel soundbar is down to $1,400 from $1,900 for savings of $500, but like all the offers in this sale, it will only be available for a limited time.

Why you should buy a Samsung Q-Series soundbar
The primary purpose of pairing a Samsung Q-Series soundbar with a Samsung TV is to enable Q-Symphony, which allows the soundbar and the TV to operate as one. This optimizes the channels, which creates an orchestrated audio experience that you can't get from any other TV and soundbar combination. Other important features found in Samsung Q-Series soundbars include SpaceFit Sound Pro that calibrates the audio according to the environment, and built-in voice assistants to enable voice commands for various functions.
