2013 Sports Technology Black Friday & Cyber Monday Deals!

IMG_7167

Updated as of Dec 10th 8:10AM Eastern

NOTE: At this point all these deals are expired!  Hope you enjoyed!

Perhaps one of the most anticipated shopping days of the year – at least for US folks, but these days many companies ship outside the US as well for relatively cheap.

The below highlights all the sweet Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals I’m aware of.  Black Friday is obviously this Friday, but most companies already have things on-sale this week.  Cyber Monday is next Monday, but again, things are a bit flexible there too – thus, mind the dates below and check back at least once a day for all the updates that I’ll post as new deals are announced.

Some of them help support the site, and some of them are just out there on the interwebs.  In both cases, I’m going to largely focus on the gadget side of things – but have provided a good starting point for other non-gadget deals.

First up, the below gadget deals support the site:

These deals are all via partner Clever Training and all earn free US shipping.  Some also qualify for the DCR 10% off coupon (if noted below).

A few Amazon-specific deals that are worth pointing out:

These are often specific to certain days of the week.  Buying through any of the links below supports the site:

Non-US Sports Technology Hot Deals:

The Amazon-specific deals benefit the site, and are specifically for non-US folks.  Note which countries below.  Remember that if in the EU, you can generally order from Amazon.de and Amazon.co.uk without any additional import taxes (that’s what I do in France).

Garmin Vector – $1,299AUS: This is a pretty massive sale, good for Australian folks.  Free shipping.  Normally $1,699AUS.  Deal Expired

Wahoo Fitness KICKR - £848: This is £100 off the normal price. Free shipping as well.  Available on the Apple UK store only, unclear on shipping rules to the rest of Europe. (Not, not on Amazon, on Apple, but figured it belonged in the non-US section).  Deal expired.

 

Withings Scales & Activity Monitors: They’ve got pretty much everything at about 15-30% off. Some solid deals there and all valid for international folks.  Deal Expired

Other random sweet deals:

Below, are additional sale items out there that don’t support the site, but are still pretty sweet.

4iiii’s Deals: 25% off everything they sell.  Especially a good deal on Viiiiva, their ANT+ & Bluetooth Smart bridge.  Also, the ANT+ Speed/Cadence sensor, which is the same unit that I recommend from Bontrager (just branded 4iiii’s).  Deal Expired

 

Basis B1 Watch: $30 off.  For weekend only.  Previously $199, now $169.  Deal Expired

Garmin.com Sales: Varies daily.  Thus far, nothing major for fitness folks.  Deal Expired

 

FINIS Sales: A bit of a circular reference as it stands right now from FINIS (Facebook > Page > Facebook), but apparently they’ll be releasing a coupon to use on their site.  They make Swimming MP3 players, distance trackers, and other pool toys.  Deal Expired

 

Power2Max Deals: USA: $125 off all power meters with BOR chain rings mounted. Europe: €210 off BOR RR688 with BOR chain rings and bolts (€960 instead of €1170). Deals valid Nov 27th through Dec 2nd. Europe hereUSA here.  Deal Expired

 

RacerMate (CompuTrainer): They’re doing a bit of a sale for $200 off their trainer, down to $1,449.  But, I really wouldn’t go that route today (used perhaps, not new).  Deal Expired

 

Recon Heads up Display (HUD) Products (including Recon Jet): $100 off: Ends December 6th.  Deal Expired

 

Wahoo Fitness: 20% off everything on their site except the Wahoo KICKR.  Also, their Wahoo Balance scale for $49US (50% off).  Deal Expired

Withings Scales & Activity Monitors: They’ve got pretty much everything at about 15-30% off.  Deal Expired

 

Others to be announced: As usual, expect that I’ll update this section multiple times a day over the coming days (and Tweet out updates as well).  Many deals won’t be announced until Wednesday.

As I see more items that are sports-technology related, I’ll update the above.  For the non-gadget side of things (but still endurance sports), I’d highly recommend checking out this page from Michael Hutto – he’s done it for a few years now and it rocks.

With that, thanks for reading (and of course, supporting the site).  And remember, if you can’t figure out what on earth you want product wise, check out the new Product Comparison Tool I put together.  It has well over 5,000 pieces of data, combined into a simple and easy to use system that’s always up to date.

And finally, you can support the site through any of the below retailers just by clicking on the link and then wandering around via their search bar to whatever it is that you want to buy – even if not sports technology related:

    If the CycleOps Trainers are 20% off, wouldn't that make the price be normally 25% more. Sorry.

      Oddly enough, no. It's always sorta been there, but I haven't highlighted it much.

      There's no discount for readers unfortunately there, but it does support the site. :)

      No special reader discount but you still get the Clever Training equivalent of 10% back at the end of the year for members ($20 lifetime membership). Plus an additional 5% if you use the REI Visa card. And you get REI's incredible customer service. And with still supporting this site, REI seems like a pretty clear winner to me.

      Dang, wish I knew REI supported you earlier! Bought myself and the gf a FR220 :( I always buy with them, the 10% dividend is nice but their customer service cannot be beat.

      Now to find something to buy from REI (but thins time using the referral link)... shouldn't be too difficult a problem ;)

    I have the RFLT+ which in a way works the same as the Viiiva right? So would you see any reason to get it? Noting I have a watch and the 30pin Wahoo connector as well.

    Reply
    • Rainmaker replied

      Yes and no. RFLKT+ doesn't rebroadcast the data, it just makes it accessible to the apps that support it. Whereas the Viiiiva unit rebroadcasts the data back out again.

      It depends a little bit of course on what you want to do with it. In some cases the RFLKT+ is better, and in others the Viiiiva is better.

      That said, if you already have the RFLKT+, I wouldn't see any specific obvious reason to double-down and also get the Viiiiva.

      Reply

      Thank DCR. I guess was that, but I guess I didn't know that it rebroadcast it. I assume that was covered in your review. Which I will need to reread.

    No deals on power meters, hu? I'm surprised. I imagine there's A LOT of people interest in one but they can't justify the prices, because they don't "need" one. Maybe I'm just describing myself, but I think there are thousands and thousands of us out there.

    I am confused by the Power2Max prices. Their site is full of slashed prices next to an actual price, but I thought for example that $879 was the regular price for the PM. Is that page typical marketing deception and the Friday deal just the free BOR rings? In other words, would the base PM prices stay the same next week?

    Hey Ray,

    thx for those links.
    Do you know about any offers for us from Europe (in my case Germany)? (see also comment #9)
    Does Clever Training ship to Europe (Germany)?

    In general it would be pretty useful if you could find a similar site like Clever training to support you or we can support you by ordering some stuff with a discount voucher.

      Most Black Friday deals are unfortunately for US folks (mostly since us over here in Europe aren't doing the Thanksgiving thing, which is what triggers the Black Friday deals).

      Clever Training does ship many items internationally, depending on each manufacture. For most items, it's flat rate ($29US).

    I've been holding off on the FR10, hoping to get a deal somewhere. Recently discovered your site, been tremendously helpful, thanks.

    Reply
    • Rainmaker replied

      You probably won't see any FR10 deals from retailers this season, as Garmin hasn't authorized discounts on them for anyone at this point (still MAP - Minimum Advertised Price). The one exception would be if Garmin themselves does a sale in the next few days (Garmin.com), via their Black Friday sales. So far though, just a bunch of maps on sale. :(

      Reply
    • Michael replied

      Thanks. I'm considering the FR210 at that price point ($149). But from what I've read, almost as if the FR10 > FR210 w/out heart rate (which I'm not interested in). I do like three data point feature on 210 and longer battery life. What would you recommend given the current sale?

      Reply
    • Rainmaker replied

      It's tricky. The FR10 has some features that the FR210 doesn't have (i.e. Run/Walk mode). But, the FR210 does have a lot that the FR10 doesn't have: Treadmill/Indoor support via footpods, interval mode, and the HR strap that you noted. It also displays more data fields as well as has more customization (not a ton, but some).

      Personally, for me, I'd go FR210 over FR10 any day.

      Reply
  14. Dave R

    Hi, Ray,

    That seems like a pretty great price on the Garmin 610. Would you recommend it over the 220 at that price?

    Also, from your experience, how real is the eight-hour battery life on the 610?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Reply
    • Rainmaker replied

      It depends, in general though, I’d go with the FR220. Here’s why you would want to purchase the FR610 instead:

      1) You want some of the basic navigational features of the FR610
      2) You want the cycling-specific mode (remember, you can still change the display to ‘Speed’ on the FR220), or you want ANT+ speed/cadence sensor support on the FR610
      3) You want to display 4 customizable data fields instead of three, per page.
      4) You want Virtual Partner (the FR220 has pace alerts, which is like a floor/ceiling instead)
      5) You want weight scale support

      Those are the main reasons. Personally, I’ll take the quicker satellite reception and upload of workouts through the phone, as well firmware updates that way. Also remember that the FR220 has significantly more features than it’s older sibling, the FR210 (for example, advanced workout support). So it’s really more of a FR620 ‘Lite’ than it is a FR210 ‘Pro’…if that makes sense.

      Just my two cents…

      Oh, and for battery life, it's generally pretty real.

    Thanks Ray. Have been wanting to upgrade to garmin 800 for a while. Also did the free maps from your post a while back too since micro SD cards are also on sale now. Can't wait to get it on the bike and play with some new routes.

  16. Any chance The Garmin Vectors or Wahoo Kickr will be on sale either on their sites, or somewhere else? This are the 2 things I really want this season. Would love to save on some of that purchase if I can.

    Reply
    • Rainmaker replied

      Zero chance on Vector unfortunately, at least online (since it's not allowed to be sold online anywhere yet, including Garmin.com). Your best bet there would be to find out what local bike shops are doing around BF deals, and see if any are offering any across the board discounts, and then picking it up there.

      For KICKR, it'd be up to Wahoo if they offer anything themselves, which I'd expect they'd announce later tonight if so.

    Does the 310xt being several years old have any effect on battery life? Are the units being sold still in production or have they been sitting on shelves for a long time?

    Reply
    • Rainmaker replied

      It likely has a small impact if bought years ago, but I haven't seen anyone complain about it.

      Units bought these days are made recently, Garmin is still actually making the FR310XT (though, that sounds like it'll end in the coming months).

    For most of Europe, if someone is interested in the Garmin Virb Elite:

    At the moment there is a nice Virb Elite EUR 355.30 deal on amazon.de (directly from amazon, marketplace offers are in a similar ballpark, but often not as flexible with shipping etc.) - it is no problem to have this sent to eg the UK (this rehashes taxes and adds some shipping fees, but still comes down to just over 300 GBP/364 EUR).

    amazon.co.uk and amazon.fr still list the Garmin Virb Elite with 349 GBP and 399 EUR respectivly, not sure why Germany seems to get better deals right now (often those come all from the same warehouse under Amazon EU S.a.r.L. afaik). Those deals are fickle of course.

      Me too. Very upset. Clever Training showed in stock and took my money. Now they email and tell me they don't have any and are refunding.

      I passed up other deals because I had already gave them my order, and now I have gotten nothing.

      WILL NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THEM AGAIN. Unacceptable.

      To be clear, I placed my order early this morning and was just refunded. How can a website not have a means to count inventory?

      Now I have missed other sales on the Hero 3. Their offer for a discount is no good for me, as I wanted the older slightly larger design for my application.

      Reply
    • Chris O. replied

      Hero 3 and hero 3+ cameras are the same size ... The quoted size difference is in the skeleton housing. You could get a hero 3+ and then get the older housing for the hero 3 if you really wanted the larger size. You can find this info on the support site at gopro.com as the back pack accessories actually need the old housing.

      Reply
    • Jon replied

      Chris, thanks for the response. That is useful information. I plan to use the camera on a brushless gimbal for a quadcopter that was designed for the Hero 3. This is without the shell, so if what you say is correct that would be OK.

      Still, I find their offer for me to buy a more expensive model from them not an acceptable solution. Target had a 'white' for sale for $200 with a $ 40 gift card. Such deals are now gone. I am lost as to how an online marketplace does not count inventory.

      I also checked my paypal... no refund yet.

      Thanks for the support of the blog!

      Ray, thanks!

      I emailed back. Looking forward to getting resolved.

    Watch out for the exclusions at Performance Bike on their "20% off everything" sale. Truth in marketing should make them say "some things 20% off, most stuff still list price".

      Yup, indeed, lots of exclusions there. Thankfully, the KICKR wasn't one of them (I validated it showed the reduced price). Though now out of stock of course.

    Another reason you gotta love Ray's blog…he makes sure that his referrals are worth something.

    @Ray - You should consider putting the REI link up permanently. Like I am guessing a lot of people, I but a good deal of stuff from them online. Still not as good a deal as Clever Training but they carry a much broader assortment of gear.

    The Finis code is not working for me on their EU store... Pretty lame, I couldn't find any indication of any limits before giving them my e-mail address.

    Cyber monday at REI: CycleOps 300 Pro indoor cycle is $1499.99 (from $2160) Resistance is controlled manually so personally would seem to be better to but your bike into a cheaper trainer that can vary the resistance but guess there are people who like these. Guessing the website will be updated by tomorrow: link to rei.com

    Looking for a cyber monday deal on the Garmin Forerunner 620 (preferred) or 220. I didnt see them on your list, but I am hoping something has come out since the update. Thanks!

      No, outside of general flat-rate percentage off type deals (i.e. 10% off), you won't find any deals on either. In general, Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals are almost always targeted at slightly older products. Given the FR220/620 are still somewhat in the 'hard to get' category, there's no reason to offer large discounts there.

    Here's the link for thefeed.com sale ... link to bit.ly ... May purchase anything, not just the subscription. Great way to try one or two of something.

    Art's Cyclery has Kurt Kinetic Road Machine trainers for 259 shipped. Looks to be the old model and not the new 2.0. Read your review and I think just the base and knobs changed. Would you buy the old one or spend the extra on the new model?

    Thanks for all that you do!!

    I see you posted that the clever training site has garmin products on sale until Dec. 9th. I was going to purchase a 610 through them, but it is set now at $249-up $30 from the $219 you listed. Any idea why?

      Once on the FR610 page, just click the little drop-down for the model without the HR strap, which shows $219. Thanks for the support!

    Any idea if or when garmin will come out with new colors for the 620? I have the black/red for the fr10 and don't like it for the 620. Just curious.

    Hey Ray!
    Any recommendations for non-electronic/smart turbo trainers? I've got a carbon frame and a crank based PM if that changes anything. I noticed you hadn't done any reviews on them, but I figured you'd be the right person to ask. Noise isn't a concern, I'm pretty far away from people. I was looking at something very entry level, definitely <250

    Hi!
    I've.been searching for days for a deal on the Garmin 910 xt but have not found any. Do you know of any deals for this? THANKS!!

      No, outside of general flat-rate percentage off type deals (i.e. 10% off, like here through Clever Training), you won’t find any deals on either. In general, Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals are almost always targeted at slightly older products or ones with lower demand.

    Withings (withings.com) has deals on bundles on their website through December 24. Just picked up the Smart Body Analyzer and the blood pressure cuff (two items I've been wanting) at a savings of almost $84. Yeah, I know it's pretty lazy when you can't be bothered to enter your data on a spreadsheet manually.

      That's right, I saw a tweet in between meetings the other day and meant to add it in. Just added it in both the lower and intl sections. Thanks!

    Sorry for butchering the HTML tag... please disregard the above comment.

    FYI, the deal for FINIS Neptune Swimming MP3 Player does not appear to be much better than the normal price. It is currently marked at $109.95 through the link. Appears at first glance to be a great deal but as you mention in the comment it normally is $110 at amazon.com.

    Thanks for a great site!
