Amazon Prime Day 2020 deals on smartwatches ends today, Wednesday 14 October, at midnight.
If you’re looking at smartwatches, it’s a good time to pick up a bargain on Garmin and Fitbit’s wrist-based fitness and performance trackers. The deals are open to Amazon Prime members, while non-members can gain access by signing up for a free 30-day Prime trial.
A smartwatch is a canny option if you’re into exercise other than cycling, with tracking for running and swimming common, and often profiles for other exercises, too. You can monitor your health stats and sleep patterns, and higher-spec options will include GPS, so you can upload your rides and runs to apps such as Strava.
We’ve done the hard work for you and picked out our favourite deals on smartwatches, but you’ll find plenty more Prime Day smartwatch offers on Amazon, too.
