Heads-up: Huge Sports Tech Sale Underway – 20% Off All Smart Trainers!
There’s a massive sales on smart cycling trainers right now, plus plenty other sports tech. There’s 20% off the Wahoo KICKR, KICKR CORE, CLIMB, Headwind, 20% off the Tacx NEO 2T, Flux 2, and Flux S, 20% off Saris Hammer 3 trainer and Saris MP1 Motion Platform. Plus also 20% off the Elite Direto X and Suito too, even the new Sterzo. Plus even steeper deals including with the Kinetic trainers at 30% off.
As promised from yesterday’s post, a slate of new deals are live as of today, including Garmin’s holiday deals, as well as Suunto’s deals. These encompass a huge swath of wearables from both companies, but also cycling items from Garmin. And a few other sports like golf stuff or something. Oh, and inReach devices. Those are cool.
These deals that start today, in conjunction with a handful of Vivo-line deals that have been listed by various Black Friday outlets, encompass all of Garmin’s holiday deals. Said another way – no, there are no Fenix 6 deals on tap this year. But hey…there’s always 2020!
There’s a ton of items down below all sorted super pretty, but here’s the gist of the biggies:
$100 off Garmin Forerunner 945 and 935
$200 off Garmin Vector/$100 off Vector S
$100 off Garmin Instinct
$150 off all Garmin Fenix 5 PLUS variants
$100 off Garmin Venu (Black Friday Weekend only)
$150 off Garmin Edge 1030
$50 off Garmin Edge 130
The Tacx NEO 2T, Flux 2, Flux S, and Flow Smart Trainers have all been added to 20% sale
The Saris H3 (Hammer 3) is now at 25% off instead of 20%. Boom!
$70 off Suunto 3
$170 off Suunto 9
Because it’s late and I’m tired of typing long preambles this week, we’re just gonna get right into things – sorted by categories.
Watches & Wearables:
This covers anything you can wear that’s watch-like or activity band-like. 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.
⚡ Clever Training 20% sale till supplies last use code MARCH20
In addition, per a pile of Black Friday deal sites I’ve confirmed the following additional Vivo related deals for Black Friday sales specifically (Nov 28th+):
Garmin Venu will be $100 off, down to $299USD
Garmin Vivofit Jr 2’s will be $20 off, down to $49USD
Garmin Fenix 6 will most definitely not be on sale. Neither will the Fenix 7 or Fenix 8.
I’ll tidy up the above listings to actual reviews/etc in the coming days. And hey, I might even get myself together enough to drop my Garmin Venu review prior to that sale. Pretty solid chance in fact, since I’ll be able to stop playing data entry dude for the last few days.
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.
Now, if you don't mind a bit of noise, and a bit of inaccuracy in the power data - then this is a steal for this trainer . Definitely the lowest price we've seen it to date. But, read the review first.
Note, you still have to pay full price, but then on April 30th you can submit in you rebate form. Honestly, the least favorite type of sale out there. But hey, if you were going to buy one anyway - then woot! Just remember to put in a calendar reminder to submit the form!
REI & Clever Training 20% sale till supplies last (likely not long). REI use code MEMPERKS2020, Clever Training use code MARCH20
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.
Clever Training 20% off sale for members, use code MARCH20.
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.
⚡ There's some great deals in here. The base GoPro Hero 8 Black is down to $349, but many retailers for $10-$20 more are adding in a crapton of accessories you'll buy anyway like extra batteries, the shorty stick, etc... I've linked to a collection of them, my personal fav is linked in the second link, and has two extra GoPro battires, a 64GB microSD card, and then a USB card reader.
DCR’s 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!
There are no deals currently.
What’s that? You’re not in the US and still want a deal? No problem! First off, you should note that some retailers do send some items overseas. For example, Clever Training can send many products overseas, and do so at a flat-rate $29USD shipping cost. You’ll want to check the individual item. For some deals, that could be a huge savings!
Beyond that, I’ll be tracking Euro-specific deals here. These will mostly include both Clever Training Europe (UK) as well as Amazon European deals.
Woot – important! The Clever Training Europe deals below can be combined with the DCR 10% discount coupon code DCR10BTF. Boom! So yes, another 10% savings on top of these prices! Plus free shipping in Europe for orders over 75EUR (almost everything in the list from CT).
Note: 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 duplicate across the sites.
Remember these days refresh each day for the most part, and usually only last a few hours. Jump if you see something you like!

I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2019 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
