Fitbit Charge 3: $120 (save $30)
Thecame out a year ago, and some users have reported problems on Amazon’s customer reviews. It’s still the best overall non-smartwatch fitness tracker, and has more features than the recent . It lacks GPS, but has stair climbing and swim tracking. Or, you might just want to wait it out for an inevitable wave of other Fitbit products on sale for Prime Day.
Fitbit Versa: $169 (save $31)
The recently releasedcosts less, at $160, but the slightly more fully featured original is currently on sale for what amounts to a $9 upsell. Why get it? Onboard music storage (which is annoying to load on), swim tracking, on-watch workout coaching, and stair climbing stats. Clearly, you should step up to get this one (but upcoming Prime Day deals may offer even better sales, so you may want to wait).
Fitbit Ionic: $200 (save $50)
Fitbit’s only GPS-enabled fitness watch is getting a little long in the tooth, but theis Fitbit’s most fully featured watch.

Apple Watch Series 3, 38mm: $199 (save $80)

Apple Watch S3, 42mm: $229 (save $80)
The same $80 savings applies to the larger size. The closer-to-$200 price is a lot more reasonable.

Plus, it has a built-in electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) feature that can help screen for potentially life-threatening conditions. It’s currently on sale in a variety of colors at Best Buy for $349.
Apple Watch S4, 44mm: $379 (save $50)
