Whether you have an eye for health and fitness or are just looking for a break from your phone, you’re going to want to check out these Prime Day deals. One of the handiest pieces of wearable tech that should go on sale this Amazon Prime Day, which we expect to fall in June, is the Samsung Galaxy Watch. Our reviewers love it for its stellar battery life, ease of use, gorgeous design, and accurate fitness-tracking measurements. Keep reading to know what to expect for Prime Day Samsung Galaxy Watch deals this year.
What Prime Day Samsung Galaxy Watch deals to expect
There are several variants when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy Watch series, so you won’t be surprised to learn that you can expect a wide range of discounts when Prime Day Samsung Galaxy Watch sales arrive.
If you’re fitness- and health-minded and you’re looking for a watch to keep count of things like steps, strokes, and calories, you’ll want to keep an eye out for the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2, which should be heavily discounted. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for something to manage texts and emails — like an alternative to pulling out your phone — the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 might be more your speed.
At the same time, don’t write off discounts you will probably see on older Samsung Galaxy Watches, like the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active. You can find incredible deals on previous year’s models in Prime Day Galaxy Watch deals.
What Prime Day Samsung Galaxy Watch deals we saw last year
If you were looking to track your workouts with a new Samsung Galaxy Watch, 2020 was a banner year. Last year we saw the 44mm Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 with GPS and Bluetooth reduced to $50 from its original price of $270. We’re not kidding. It dropped by $220 — that’s more than 80% off!
At the same time, there were significant discounts on the 42mm Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 with GPS, Bluetooth, and unlocked LTE. In different deals, we saw it discounted from $430 to $280, from $600 to $290, and from $480 to $382. That’s a wide chasm of difference, but the key takeaway is that if you see a Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 in the $280 range, feel free to jump on that Prime Day Galaxy Watch sale.
Should you buy a new Samsung Galaxy Watch on Prime Day?
Is a new Samsung Galaxy Watch something you need? If the answer is yes and you’ve just been waiting for the right time to pull the trigger, then you should definitely snag a new Samsung Galaxy Watch on Prime Day; it’s unlikely you’ll find it cheaper anywhere else. Using our guide to the best smartwatches will help you figure out the best one for you.
We’ve compared prices in the past, and it’s unlikely that the Samsung Galaxy Watch will be significantly discounted further for Black Friday or at any other time, so don’t hold off if you’re thinking you might find a better deal at a different sale.
Now, if you’re less certain that a new Samsung Galaxy Watch is for you, you might want to consider a few things before jumping into Prime Day Samsung Galaxy Watch sales. First, think about your budget. Before you get enticed into splurging on a new smartwatch, figure out exactly what you can afford to spend, then stick to that number. Just as importantly, keep your eyes open for really significant price drops in Samsung Galaxy Watch sales. What we don’t want to happen is for you to get enticed by great-looking Samsung Galaxy Watch deals, which are ultimately only for 10% or 15% off, and then spend more than you wanted.
We want you to come away from Prime Day with great tech, not regrets.
