Running & Fitness Tech Prime Day Deals 2020 – Garmin, Huawei, Fitbit, Withings and More
Prime day has finally arrived. Just a month before Black Friday. So if you are looking for some retail therapy after to cope with the awful 2020, now is a the best time to bag yourself some great deals.
Everything sold on Prime Day is eligible for return until the 31st of January, so if you are buying for Christmas, or a better deal comes up on Black Friday, you can always return it.
First up is fitness tech. Lots of excellent deals as usual.
Huawei Watch GT 2 for £118 or GT2e for £95 and GT2 42mm for £99.99
Both amazing watches, I personally love the original GT2 as I think it is one of the better-looking smartwatches on the market. However, for under £100 the GT2e has to be one of the best buys on the market for a GPS equipped smartwatch. The only downside is no Strava exports, but at this price, I can forgive them. If you have a smaller wrist, or just don’t like the larger sizes of the other watches, then the 42mm model is under £100 too.
The Garmin Fenix 6 landed on Amazon a year ago for £529.99, and at £356 it is an amazing buy. Sadly this is not a Pro model, so there are no maps, music or Wi-Fi. If I am honest, I have rarely used any of those functions, unless you really run or ride without your phone, then this should be more than enough for any runner/cyclist/triathlete.
The Suunto 7 is the only multi-sport watch on the market that is a proper smartwatch, it also happens to be one of the best WearOS devices on the market. Sadly, all that smartwatch functionality means the battery won’t compete with the likes of Garmin and Polar.
This is the older model, but still an amazing watch and an absolute bargain at this price. The Vivoactive models are a little more stylish than the Forerunner alternatives, so they are a good choice for all-day wear.
Again, an older model, and a bit ugly to boot, but if you want to track your runs and export the data to Strava as cheap as possible, this is the way to go.
I personally think this is the best-connected smart scale on the market, offering a superb balance of price and features combines with the superb Health Mate ecosystem. I bought this myself two years ago, and only recently switched to the fancier Body Cardio.
I previously reviewed the Withings Sleep Mat, and while sleep tracking accuracy can be hit and miss for any device, this is about as good as it gets. It has improved with age too, they have now implemented sleep apnea tracking too, helping you identify breathing problems.
I have not used this watch, but it could be argued that it is a better buy than the Fenix if you are a serious runner. This has running power from the wrist, avoiding you spending £200 on a Stryd. At £279.99 it is the cheapest it has ever been.
Cheapest it has ever been, one of the best general fitness trackers, though the lack of built-in GPS means runners/cyclists may prefer something else.
