Amazon’s Prime Day is always a great time to snag some deals, and the official Prime Day 2021 date lands soon, with the two main days being June 21 and June 22. But the Prime Day deals have begun early, with some fantastic Prime Day smartwatch sales already live across the internet for Prime Day weekend.
Technology is often one of the focal points of Prime Day sales, so that means big discounts on some of the most popular smartwatches out there. Read on as we dig into the biggest Prime Day smartwatch sales.
The best smartwatch deals happening now
What Prime Day smartwatch deals to expect
The biggest name in smartwatches right now is the Apple Watch and we strongly expect to see discounts on the latest Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE with price cuts on the older Apple Watch Series 3 highly likely.
Elsewhere, one of the best Android smartwatches — the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is also very likely to enjoy itself during the Prime Day smartwatch sales with discounts highly likely.
If you’re looking for something a little different, don’t be surprised to see more fashion-conscious items like the Skagen Falster 3 or the Moto 360 also on sale during this time. Running watches from Garmin are also very likely to be a big part of the Prime Day smartwatch deals, too.
What Prime Day smartwatch deals we saw last year
Last year, we saw modest discounts on the Apple Watch range along with bigger price cuts for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and the Garmin running watch range. The more budget-friendly Samsung Galaxy Watch Active also enjoyed a hefty price cut as part of the Prime Day smartwatch sales going on.
The Fitbit Versa 2 also had its price cut significantly, in part due to it being replaced by the superior Fitbit Sense further down the line. Smartwatches like the Fossil Gen 5 were also part of the Prime Day smartwatch deals keen to lure customers in.
Should you buy a new smartwatch on Prime Day?
Technology is always one of Prime Day’s strongest areas for pure discounts. Prime Day is now one of the best times of the year to buy gadgets, right alongside the juggernaut that is Black Friday. Best of all, buying a smartwatch on Prime Day means you can enjoy your wearable across the summer months, safe in the knowledge you’ve saved yourself plenty of cash.
But as always, know your budget and stick to it. Consult our guide to the best smartwatches and the best running watches so you know exactly what you’re looking for, and don’t be tempted to overspend or panic-buy an un-researched device.
Keep an eye out for some sneaky discounts, too. With so many discounts as part of the Prime Day smartwatch sales, not all are huge. Some are incremental, so you may not need to worry about rushing into a purchase unless you know you’re set on that particular smartwatch.
