Best Prime Day 2020 smartwatch deals: $450 off Garmin Fenix 5S Plus, plus Samsung, Apple Watch and more

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

The final day of Amazon Prime Day is here and runs until 11:59 p.m. PT tonight. Rivals of the retail giant, including Best BuyTarget and Walmart, also have some big sales this week. Wearables from tech’s biggest brands Apple and Samsung are included.

Today’s deals on Amazon include slashed prices on wearables such as the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, Fitbit trackers and Garmin running watches. Although there are tons of great deals to choose from, what you won’t see deep discounts on is the Apple Watch: We’re only seeing price drops between $15 and $30 on some models, but those are really just a continuation of “everyday low prices” that have been typical for weeks. 

Keep reading to see the best smartwatch deals we’ve found so far on Amazon. We’ll keep updating this story regularly.

The Galaxy Watch 3, released in August, comes with advanced sleep tracking, a blood oxygen level reader and improved fitness tools. It’s down to $369 for Prime Day, saving you $31. And unlike the Apple Watch, this one works with iPhones and Android phones.

If you’re new to smartwatches, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is a great option to get you started. It has many health and fitness features and is down to $139 from $200, saving you $61. It’s not the lowest price ever, but it’s $30 to $60 better than the usual selling price.

If you’re looking to upgrade to a touchscreen watch, the Fitbit Versa 2 has much to offer. It has a battery that lasts for days and doubles as a fitness tracker. Originally priced at $180, the Fitbit Versa 2 is down to $128 for Prime Day. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen to date. Just be aware there’s a newer Versa 3 model (although that one isn’t on sale today).

Full disclosure: This is only $15 off — holding a discount that was live before Prime Day — and it’s only on a single color in the lineup. But this is the latest and greatest Apple Watch Series 6, released just last month. We’re only seeing discounts on models with the red and white bands for now.

If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Series 3 is your best bet. It’s swim-proof and comes with GPS tracking and a heart-rate sensor. This, too, is the same discount that’s been found on this model for months. But at $169, you’ll save $30 versus what you’d pay at the Apple Store.
