Cyber Monday 2018 smartwatch and fitness tracker deals: Free Apple Watch 4, Samsung Galaxy Watch for $260, Gear Sport for $180
Cyber Monday sales make this the perfect time to swap your old analog watch for something fresh and digital, such as the Apple Watch, Fitbit Charge 3 or Garmin Vivosmart 4 — or to buy a holiday gift at a great price. Bookmark this page and check back for updated Cyber Monday deals that save you some bucks off the full retail price.
Before you start looking for deals, it’s important to figure out what you need in a wearable or you may end up spending more on features you don’t need. Designated fitness bands such as Fitbit’s Charge 3 and Alta, or Garmin’s Vivofit tend to be cheaper options. You get basic activity tracking, watch features and notifications, but you’re limited by a smaller screen.
Smartwatches such as the Apple Watch, Fitbit Versa or Samsung Gear for example, will still have a lot of the same fitness tracking functionality as the previous trackers, but they have more controls on the screen and can even become a secondary phone. The downside is they do tend to be bulkier and more expensive.

Apple Watch 4 review
Fitbit Charge 3, $120 (Save $30)
Fitbit’s latest tracker is almost a category of its own. It’s not quite a fully fledged smartwatch, but it’s not just a fitness band either. The design is also a nice middle ground between bulky and sleek, and has some tactile functionality on the screen.
