In the unlikely event the internet or Amazon hasn’t already informed you, today and tomorrow (Monday/Tuesday) is Amazon Prime Day. That means that most (all?) Amazon country properties are doing pretty substantial deals across the board on all sorts products, including yes, sports tech gear. Historically held in July, this year it’s a bit earlier, and historically, Amazon Prime Day has been *VERY* strong for sports tech deals – even eclipsing Black Friday (from an Amazon perspective). Oh, and in some countries, ‘Prime Day’ is somehow the whole. Because.
In some ways, for sports tech items it’s timed perfectly. See, typically Black Friday deals are for ‘older’ things, rarely the ‘just announced’ stuff that often comes in the late August to October timeframe (especially cycling trainers, and watches). But with Prime Day being in June, there’s frankly not a lot of ‘just announced’ stuff. Thus, more opportunity for brands to put things on sale for a one-off summer day.
In any case, below I’ll be updating all the categories throughout the day, all day long. Note that I’ve got a special Europe section lower down too, for dedicated Euro deals. As usual, Europeans generally get better always-on year-round discounts than US folks do, which have pricing restricted by manufactures MAP (Minimum Advertised Price).
You need to be an Amazon Prime Member, but you can easily pickup a free 30 day trial for that to cover these days.
With that, onto the deals! And thanks for supporting the site via the links below. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Enjoy!
Watches & Wearables:
This covers anything you can wear that’s watch-like or activity band-like, including sensors. Generally speaking, you’ll mostly find deals here that are on things I’ve written about in the past. So you won’t find a deal on some random non-sports tech watch here, or on socks. Unless the socks have some crazy sensor or something in them.
|Product||Sale Price||Amazon||Other site||Sale Notes|
|Apple AirPods Pro – $60 off!
|Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case – $50 Off!||$149||Amazon||⚡ I use AirPods primarily when I’m travelling just to listen in airports, planes, etc… I don’t tend to use these for workouts due to them falling out. Personally, I just use the basic model.|
|Apple Airpods (2nd Gen) – $30-$50 off
|$99-119||Amazon||I use AirPods primarily when I’m traveling just to listen in airports, planes, etc… I don’t tend to use these for workouts due to them falling out. Note: Price fluctuating between $99-$119 throughout day.|
|Apple Watch Series 6 – (40mm) – $120 Off
|$279||Amazon||⚡⚡ The strongest deal yet on the Apple Watch Series 6! Note, this price is fluctuating constantly throughout the day, so keep checking back if it’s not showing the lowest price.|
|Fitbit ACE 2 Activity Tracker for Kids – 57% Off||$29||Amazon||Umm, this is an incredible. So incredible that I’ve almost gotta wonder if this product line is going to be kept around. Fitbit never discounts this much. But hey, they also never drop support on things – so it frankly doesn’t matter much if there’s not an ACE 3 or something.|
|Fitbit Charge 4 – $50 off!
|$99||Amazon||Currently the best deal we’ve seen to date, matching only the Black Friday deal last fall.|
|Fitbit Inspire 2 – 40% off
|Fitbit Sense – 40% off
|$199||Amazon||This is the lowest price to date for the Fitbit Sense (by far), and makes it a deal you should definitely consider versus the Fitbit Versa 3 for the same price (no, really, there’s no reason to get the Versa 3 at the same price).|
|Garmin Fenix 6 Sapphire (Base model) – $300 off||$499||Amazon||This is the non-Pro variant, so it doesn’t include music/maps, but has essentially every other feature on it. Also, this specific sale version is the Sapphire edition, so a bit hardier glass. Still, it’s an incredible discount on this watch.|
|Garmin Fenix 6 Series – $100 all models
|$100 off||Amazon||⚡ This deal is back! A variant of the $100-$150 off Fenix range deal shows up each May/June ahead of Fathers day and past Amazon Prime Day, and this is no different. This also includes the newer Fenix 6/6S Solar units from this past summer.|
|Garmin Forerunner 245 – $50 off
|$249||Amazon||Both the Forerunner 245 is on sale for $50 off. While not a huge sale, it’s actually the lowest we’ve seen either product priced to date.|
|Garmin Forerunner 245 Music – $60 off||$289||Amazon||Both the Forerunner 245 Music is sale for $60 off. While not a huge sale, it’s actually the lowest we’ve seen either product priced to date. The FR245 Music supports Spotify, Amazon Music, and other streaming platforms.|
|Garmin Forerunner 45/45S – $20 off
|$139||Amazon||This is a good deal, though, keep in mind the Forerunner 55 just came out. So the ‘normal’ list price of $199 for the FR45 isn’t really true anymore (that’s the new FR55 list price). Thus this is roughly $20 off. In any case, it’s a great running watch.|
|Garmin Forerunner 745 – $25 off
|$475||Amazon||The FR745 multisport GPS watch has music support (including Spotify), and is otherwise a full triathlon watch. This is only the second time we’ve seen it on sale since release. So $25 off is better than nothing off.|
|Garmin Forerunner 945 – $83 off
|$515||Amazon||Backcountry||Not a bad deal, the price seems to fluctuate between $80-$85 off (official Garmin sale price currently).|
|Garmin Instinct Esports Edition – 40% off||$179||Amazon||This is actually the first time we’ve seen a deal on this quirky little variant of Garmin Instinct, meant to pair up with its own special app for transmitting data to streamers.|
|Garmin Instinct Solar – $150 off
|$249||Amazon||⚡ By far the best deal we’ve seen on the Instinct Solar edition, which came out last summer.|
|Garmin Instinct Tactical- $120 Off||$179||Amazon||This is the lowest this watch has been ($120 off, and down to $197). Note that this is the non-Solar version, so do keep that in mind.|
|Garmin Venu GPS Smartwatch – $130 off!
|$219||Amazon||⚡ This is about the lowest we’ve seen yet for the Garmin Venu GPS (by far), which includes an AMOLED display as well as music (even Spotify offline). Solid deal. Note, the Venu 2 did come out last month.|
|Garmin Vivoactive 4/4S – $100-150 off
|$189||Amazon||⚡ This is Garmin’s current offering to compete with the Apple Watch series (alongside the Garmin Venu/Venu 2), and is currently the lowest price we’ve seen to date, even better than Black Friday last year. Historically Garmin refreshes this lineup the last week of August this year, but who knows what the future holds.|
|Garmin Vivofit Jr. 3 – 38% off||$49||Amazon||This deal easily beats Black Friday last year, making it the lowest we’ve seen on the Vivofit Jr 3 series.|
|Nurvv Running Insoles – 40% off
|$179||Amazon||This is a pretty new product, just launched this past fall that sits inside your shoe and even has GPS built into the pod sidewalls. However, just last week (mid-June) it got an update that now includes a new footstrike coach/target system.|
|Polar Ignite GPS – $40 off
|$159||Amazon||This is a good deal for a good unit. As with the Polar Vantage M deal, it’s no longer the most recent version of this watch, but it’s still got a ton of features packed into it.|
|Polar Vantage M – $50 off
|$223||Amazon||This isn’t the latest model anymore, but it’s still a really solid multisport watch.|
|Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus Wireless Earbuds – 43% off||$84||Amazon|
|Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 – 23% off||$329||Amazon||Not as good a deal as it gets (down to $238 earlier this May), but hey, a deal is a deal.|
|Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 – 35% off||$279||Amazon||This is almost the lowest price I’ve seen on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3|
|Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 – 36% off||$159||Amazon|
|Suunto 7 Wear OS Watch – $128 off
|$270||Amazon||This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen the Suunto 7 Wear OS powered watch at. Plus, it continues to get new features too!|
|Suunto 9 Baro Series – $100 off
$599 (non-baro is $499)
|$499||Amazon||This isn’t quite as good a deal as a few weeks ago when it was 42% off (basically $200 off), but it’s still a deal nonetheless.|
Cycling Gear & Trainers:
Got a bike? Then this section is for you. Everything from bike computers to bike lights to trainers, it’s all here. I won’t generally be adding things like brake cables or bike seats here, but if I find a good deal on a cassette to stack on that new direct drive trainer you just bought, I’ll probably list it here.
Action Cameras & Drones:
Wanna record it? No better way than an action camera. Anything that’s action camera related or drone related you’ll find here. That’s especially true of action camera mounts, which are often found for great deals around the holidays. Same goes with drone and drone accessories. Usually a great time to pick up an extra battery or extra props.
|Product||Sale Price||Amazon||Other site||Sale Notes|
|DJI Mavic Mini Fly More Combo Kit – 24% off||$399||Amazon|
|GoPro Hero 9 Black – $50 off||$399||Amazon||REI||This is the camera I use for all my daily shooting during sports. Actually, I’ve bought a few of them. Note that if you’re a GoPro Plus Subscriber, then it’s a bit cheaper at $349 from GoPro directly, but otherwise, it’s $449.|
Other Sports & Fitness:
Anything else that’s sports and fitness related that I think is interesting will be here. It may not be super techy – but it’s stuff that most readers will be using in pursuit of their running/cycling/swimming/hiking/whatever.
What’s that? You’re not in the US and still want a deal? No problem! Note that on Amazon Europe deals, generally speaking, you can order from any Amazon European country site (I.e. Amazon France) and have it shipped within the EU (I.e. Spain). Thus, many times deals are duplicated across the sites. I generally try and just distill it down to one.
Remember these deals refresh each day for the most part, and usually only last a few hours. Jump if you see something you like!
There are no deals currently.
DCR Random Gadget List:
This is basically the mostly totally unrelated gadgets and things I think are cool deals that I’ve likely bought one or five of (you can never have too many, right)? Some of it’s probably photography stuff. Some of it’s random stuff like chargers and battery packs that I use daily, fun camera gear I use to make videos like sliders and turntables, and well…just random things you’ll find around the DCR Cave. It’s all random…but it’s all awesome randomness!
|Product||Sale Price||Amazon||Sale Notes|
|Amazon Echo Dot – 53% off||$19||Amazon||I use these around the studio and home – and for $18, it’s kinda incredible what kind of technology they can pack into that price.|
|Jackery Portable Power Station – $100 off||$199||Amazon||This is something I use frequently when shooting out and about and I need to re-charge a crapton of drone batteries, action cameras, or just cameras and such. I also use it on trips to Eurobike and elsewhere to keep equipment charged. Technically you can even hook a solar panel up to it. Heck, I’ve even powered a KICKR trainer ride from it!|
