Amazon plays its cards very close to its chest when it comes to the delights and discounts that will be on offer as part of Amazon Prime Day (it’s a bit like Black Friday for members of Amazon’s Prime subscription service), but the online retail giant has revealed a few of the products that will be reduced as part of the event, which starts at 6pm on 10th July.
Those looking to grab a deal on fitness gear are in luck because there are several excellent fitness trackers and other products that will get a price drop.
You need to be an Amazon Prime member to benefit from the deals, which costs £7.99 a month or £79 a year, although there are 30-day free trials available and the Prime service itself is discounted during the event.
Here are a few of our picks, but feel free to browse all the “Deals for Fitness Fanatics” yourself.The reduced prices will be revealed once the deals go live and Amazon will be announcing more deals on fitness gear throughout the Prime Day festivities, so we’ll be keeping you abreast of the best offers as and when they arise right here on Coach.
UPDATE: We’ve added in just announced deals from Garmin, Huawei, Joe Wicks, Jaybird and more.
Amazon Prime Day Fitness Tracker Deals
Garmin Forerunner 235
This is probably the most exciting tracker deal of the day, in that the Forerunner 235 is one of the most popular GPS running watches on the market and even at it’s RRP of £299 (or the £220-230 you can generally find it for) we ranked it as the best mid-range tracker for runners. At a reduced price of £174.99, it’s almost a no-brainer.
The Forerunner 235 tracks runs accurately with both GPS and GLONASS satellites, displays all the key running metrics on its large, clear screen, including a dedicated screen for heart rate, and will also estimate your VO2 max. It’s also an all-day (and night) fitness tracker, with continuous heart rate, step and sleep tracking, and a battery that will last you a week even with several runs included. Amazon Prime Day price £174.99, buy on amazon.co.uk
