Amazon has big savings on a number of popular smartwatches from Fitbit, Withings and Garmin as part of its 2019 Summer sale, which ends this Friday.
GPS-connected smartwatches are a popular alternative to cycle computers if you don’t need navigation functionality and are most interested in tracking your performance. They are also more versatile than a cycle computer as they can be used for other activities such as running or swimming.
Read on to see the latest Amazon deals on Garmin’s Forerunner 235, Withings, and Fitbit’s Ionic, Versa and Charge 3 smartwatches.
Save 17% on Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS smartwatch
The Forerunner has 17% off currently at Amazon Amazon
The Garmin Forerunner 234 smartwatch is aimed specifically at runners but is also relevant to cyclists — with full GPS functionality and heart rate monitoring, it is perfect for tracking your rides and uploading them to platforms such as Strava.
Save up to £90 on Withings smartwatches
Withings’ smartwatches shouldn’t be viewed as a proper training aid, but could be useful to some cyclists Amazon
Withings’ smartwatches are definitely best viewed as a ‘connected fashion’ device rather than an out-and-out training aid.
However, for the dedicated cyclist who absolutely must track their recovery and activity every minute of the day, but also wants to look the part when sipping a (low calorie) Aperol Spritz apres work, a Withings smart watch may just be your best shout.
Save 20% on Fitbit Versa smartwatch
The Fitbit Versa is the most popular smartwatch on Amazon Amazon
The Fitbit Versa is the most popular smartwatch on Amazon, and with good reason.
The Versa is just about as fully-featured as you could ever want, with GPS and Bluetooth connectivity, full compatibility with apps such as Strava, Uber and Fitbit Play, a 4+ day battery life and so much more.
Better still, you can have the watch with a healthy 20 percent saving right now on Amazon.
Save 12% on Fitbit Ionic smartwatch
The Fitbit Ionic is a great option for riders who also run or swim Amazon
The Fitbit Ionic has a slimline profile and is waterproof to 50 meters, which makes it a great option for riders who also like to swim or run and don’t want a dedicated device for cycling.
The Ionic also has storage for 300+ songs, so it’s also a great option if you like to listen to music while you ride
Save 8% on Fitbit Charge 3 smartwatch
The Charge 3 doesn’t feature GPS connectivity, but could be useful for some cyclists Amazon
If you want a more simple (and cheaper!) option, the Fitbit Charge 3 could be for you. With no GPS connectivity, it’s best suited to riders who just want to track their health and performance.
The inbuilt Bluetooth transceiver could also be a good option if you want a heart rate monitor to feed into your cycle computer.
