Sports Tech Deals for Black Friday 2020!


Here’s your complete guide to sports tech deals, sorted by category and updated constantly daily.

Most links here help support the site – which I greatly appreciate! If you know of a sports tech deal (gadget-focused), feel free to drop a note in the comments or in the contact form. As long as it’s not spam-like, I’m more than happy to share it out! 🙂

Watches & Wearables:

This covers anything you can wear that’s watch-like or activity band-like, including sensors.  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.

ProductSale PriceAmazonOther siteSale Notes
Amazon Halo Wearable Band - 30% off$69
Apple AirPods Pro - $60 off!
Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case - $50 Off!$149⚡ I use AirPods primarily when I'm travelling just to listen in airports, planes, etc... I don't tend to use these for workouts due to them falling out. Personally, I just use the basic model.
Apple Airpods (2nd Gen) - $30-$50 off
$99-119I use AirPods primarily when I'm traveling just to listen in airports, planes, etc... I don't tend to use these for workouts due to them falling out. Note: Price fluctuating between $99-$119 throughout day.
Apple Watch Series 6 - (40mm) - $120 Off
$399/$499 (cellular)
$279⚡⚡ The strongest deal yet on the Apple Watch Series 6! Note, this price is fluctuating constantly throughout the day, so keep checking back if it's not showing the lowest price.
Beats PowerBeats Pro Wireless Sport Headphones - $30 off
$169⚡ These are my daily driver headphones that I use for all my trainer rides, and anything else sport related. While they're not perfect (namely the charging case), it's what I keep going back to every day because of the seamless Apple ecosystem integration (iPad/Apple TV/iOS/Mac).
Fitbit ACE 2 Activity Tracker for Kids - 57% Off$29Umm, this is an incredible. So incredible that I've almost gotta wonder if this product line is going to be kept around. Fitbit never discounts this much. But hey, they also never drop support on things - so it frankly doesn't matter much if there's not an ACE 3 or something.
Fitbit Charge 4 - $50 off!
$99Currently the best deal we've seen to date, matching only the Black Friday deal last fall.
Fitbit Inspire 2 - 40% off
Fitbit Sense - 40% off
$199This is the lowest price to date for the Fitbit Sense (by far), and makes it a deal you should definitely consider versus the Fitbit Versa 3 for the same price (no, really, there's no reason to get the Versa 3 at the same price).
Garmin Fenix 6 Sapphire (Pro) - $300 off$499⚡⚡⚡ This is probably the best deal of the day for this Fenix 6 Pro Sapphire edition, which includes the maps/music/Wifi, and is discounted far more than the rest of the lineup.
Garmin Fenix 6 Series - $100 all models
$100 off⚡ This deal is back! A variant of the $100-$150 off Fenix range deal shows up each May/June ahead of Fathers day and past Amazon Prime Day, and this is no different. This also includes the newer Fenix 6/6S Solar units from this past summer.
Garmin Forerunner 245 - $50 off
$249Both the Forerunner 245 is on sale for $50 off. While not a huge sale, it's actually the lowest we've seen either product priced to date.
Garmin Forerunner 245 Music - $60 off$289Both the Forerunner 245 Music is sale for $60 off. While not a huge sale, it's actually the lowest we've seen either product priced to date. The FR245 Music supports Spotify, Amazon Music, and other streaming platforms.
Garmin Forerunner 45/45S - $20 off
$139This is a good deal, though, keep in mind the Forerunner 55 just came out. So the 'normal' list price of $199 for the FR45 isn't really true anymore (that's the new FR55 list price). Thus this is roughly $20 off. In any case, it's a great running watch.
Garmin Forerunner 745 - $25 off
$475The FR745 multisport GPS watch has music support (including Spotify), and is otherwise a full triathlon watch. This is only the second time we've seen it on sale since release. So $25 off is better than nothing off.
Garmin Forerunner 945 - $83 off
$515Not a bad deal, the price seems to fluctuate between $80-$85 off (official Garmin sale price currently).
Garmin Instinct Esports Edition - 40% off$179This is actually the first time we've seen a deal on this quirky little variant of Garmin Instinct, meant to pair up with its own special app for transmitting data to streamers.
Garmin Instinct Solar - $150 off
$249⚡ By far the best deal we've seen on the Instinct Solar edition, which came out last summer.
Garmin Instinct Tactical- $120 Off$179This is the lowest this watch has been ($120 off, and down to $197). Note that this is the non-Solar version, so do keep that in mind.
Garmin Venu GPS Smartwatch - $130 off!
$219⚡ This is about the lowest we've seen yet for the Garmin Venu GPS (by far), which includes an AMOLED display as well as music (even Spotify offline). Solid deal. Note, the Venu 2 did come out last month.
Garmin Vivoactive 4/4S - $100-150 off
$189⚡ This is Garmin's current offering to compete with the Apple Watch series (alongside the Garmin Venu/Venu 2), and is currently the lowest price we've seen to date, even better than Black Friday last year. Historically Garmin refreshes this lineup the last week of August this year, but who knows what the future holds.
Garmin Vivofit Jr. 3 - 38% off$49This deal easily beats Black Friday last year, making it the lowest we've seen on the Vivofit Jr 3 series.
Nurvv Running Insoles - 40% off
$179This is a pretty new product, just launched this past fall that sits inside your shoe and even has GPS built into the pod sidewalls. However, just last week (mid-June) it got an update that now includes a new footstrike coach/target system.
Polar Ignite GPS - $40 off
$159This is a good deal for a good unit. As with the Polar Vantage M deal, it's no longer the most recent version of this watch, but it's still got a ton of features packed into it.
Polar Vantage M - $50 off
$223This isn't the latest model anymore, but it's still a really solid multisport watch.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus Wireless Earbuds - 43% off$84
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 - 23% off$329Not as good a deal as it gets (down to $238 earlier this May), but hey, a deal is a deal.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 - 35% off$279This is almost the lowest price I've seen on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 - 36% off$159
Suunto 7 Wear OS Watch - $128 off
$270This is the lowest price we've ever seen the Suunto 7 Wear OS powered watch at. Plus, it continues to get new features too!
Suunto 9 Baro Series - $100 off
$599 (non-baro is $499)
$499This isn't quite as good a deal as a few weeks ago when it was 42% off (basically $200 off), but it's still a deal nonetheless.

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.

ProductSale PriceAmazonOther siteSale Notes
Garmin Edge 1030 Plus - $110 off
$490⚡ I don't think this particular discount will last long. It seems a bit quirky the way it's worded on Amazon's page. Note that the Edge 1030 Plus was on sale for $100 off till last week, so in some ways this is just a continuation of that for a tiny bit longer/more.
Garmin Edge 130 Plus - 30% off!
$139⚡ This is the lowest we've seen the Edge 130 Plus on sale. The 'Plus' variant is notable compared to the regular unit for having ClimbPro on it, plus a handful of other tweaks. $139 is a great deal for it.
Garmin Varia RVR315 Radar - 23% off$104This is Garmin's latest gen Varia radar, without the light portion. This is also by far the best deal we've seen on it.
Garmin Varia Radar (RTL515) - $30 off$169This seems to go on sale about once per year, and this be that time. If you're looking to pick one up, I wouldn't expect any further deals till probably Black Friday timeframe.

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.

ProductSale PriceAmazonOther siteSale Notes
DJI Mavic Mini Fly More Combo Kit - 24% off$399
GoPro Hero 9 Black - $50 off$399This is the camera I use for all my daily shooting during sports. Actually, I've bought a few of them. Note that if you're a GoPro Plus Subscriber, then it's a bit cheaper at $349 from GoPro directly, but otherwise, it's $449.
Insta360 One R Action Cam - 5% off$469The entire lineup of Insta360 One R action cams are 15% off, including the 1" and 360 variants. Overall it's a good cam with good picture clarity (I've mainly used the 1" 5.3K variant), but I find the software really lets it down.

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.

ProductSale PriceAmazonSale Notes
Apple TV 4K (2021 Edition) for Zwift - $29 off$169I use this for almost all my Zwifting. This is the first major deal we've seen on something barely a month old. Also, the 32GB model is on sale too, from the same link.

Euro Deals!

What’s that? You’re not in the US and still want a deal?  No problem!  Note that 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 duplicated across the sites. I generally try and just distill it down to one.

Remember these deals refresh each day for the most part, and usually only last a few hours. Jump if you see something you like!

DCR 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!

ProductSale PriceAmazonSale Notes
All Amazon Kindles: 33-45% offVariesBoth myself and The Girl have Kindles for reading. In her case, she uses hers daily. In my case, it ends to be more vacation/weekends. We both recently upgraded are crazy-old ones to the newer Paperwhite editions. We don't need much fancy.
Amazon Echo Dot - 53% off$19I use these around the studio and home - and for $18, it's kinda incredible what kind of technology they can pack into that price.
Apple iPad - Latest Model 8th Gen (32GB) - 10% off$299I use my iPad primarily for TrainerRoad as well as Zwift when not with a larger display. I also occasionally use it for other apps, namely The SufferFest - but I pretty much test every smart trainer app on it. (US AMAZON DEAL ONLY).
Google Nest Mesh WiFi Router - 30% two-pack$205These are the WiFi mesh access points I use both at home and the DCR Cave. Love them - I don't need to dork with them, they just work.
Jackery Portable Power Station - $100 off$199This is something I use frequently when shooting out and about and I need to re-charge a crapton of drone batteries, action cameras, or just cameras and such. I also use it on trips to Eurobike and elsewhere to keep equipment charged. Technically you can even hook a solar panel up to it. Heck, I've even powered a KICKR trainer ride from it!
Lacie 2TB & 4TB Ruggedized USB Drives - 41% off$91These are the drives I primarily use for large piles of storage with my laptop and daily use before offloading to a file server. I also sometimes edit videos off these too (though, for multiple 4K streams in video it can be a tiny bit slower than SSD drives). But still, definitely recommend these.
Nest Cam Indoors - 23% off$99We have more Nest cam's than I can count. No really, we have half a dozen at the DCR Cave alone, plus more at home. We love them. Nest Cam's really only go on sale about 1-2x per year.
Nest Cam Outdoors - $50 off$149We use one of these and so far after I think just about three years, it's working great for us. Love it, and works better than trying to stick a regular Nest Cam out the window (since it'll reflect both during daytime and at night with the IR sensor).
SanDisk 1-2TB Extreme PRO Portable External SSD - 36-45% off$169This is one of the two the high speed drives I use to store the footage I'm actively video editing, so that I can edit it on both my iMac at the office, and then my MacBook when travelling or at home.
SanDisk 256GB Extreme PRO SD Cards - 52% off$47I use the SanDisk Extreme Pro SD Cards exclusively for all my video/photo shooting on my Panasonic GH5 and Nikon cameras (video and stills), including up to 6K recording with the GH5. I've mostly used 128's, but more and more lately I'm filling up cards faster with higher bitrates, so this sale is gonna have me pickup a bunch of the 256GB ones instead. The 128GB/512GB/1TB ones are also on sale too viathe same link.
SanDisk 256GB MicroSD Card - 40% off!$28I use this card in both 128GB and 256GB variety, and it's perfect for all my drones and action cams, easily recording 4K/60 and 5K/30, as well as 5.7K without trouble. I often pickup these cards when on sale like this, so I have them for later in the year when not on sale.
Synology 4 bay NAS DiskStation DS920+ (Diskless) - $110 off$439⚡ I use Synology NAS units for all my file storage at the DCR Cave. This unit is a slightly smaller variant of what I use (DS1817), but mainly just with less storage space. The DS920+ linked here is a solid deal at $110 off, though, keep in mind if just using for simple storage, the DS418 is cheaper (but doesn't support expansion units). Also, remember you'll need to add disks. I currently find 8TB units are the sweet spot on price vs capacity.

I’ll continue to add deals as I find them. I don’t expect *ANY* further smart trainer deals this year that beat the earlier 20% off deals. Cause frankly, there’s no reason for retailers to offer such a deal on trainers. They sell virtually every unit they get without even trying right now. REI’s inclusion was mostly just because they’ve always sold trainers as part of the deal.

With that – thanks for reading, and for supporting the site via the links above. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Have a great weekend!

  1. Andreas

    Heard of any delas for European customers?

  2. RTellis

    I was wavering between upgrading my iPad and getting a Kickr Climb as my annual Christmas/birthday gift to myself. Eventually, although total cost was higher for the iPad, I decided to go that route because it was the better price to usefulness choice. But I can’t say that the price listed above for the Climb doesn’t make me rethink that idea.

  3. JP Miller

    REI also has the Fenix 6 line on sale – is this the start of the Garmin pre-holiday sale?

    link to rei.com

  4. So does this actually work? I had seen the pre-announcement of the sale, and the T&C explicitly exclude bike trainers: link to rei.com.

    > Discounts not valid on car racks & accessories, roof boxes, bicycles, bike trainers, snowshoes, skis, ski boots or ski bindings; snowboards, snowboard boots or snowboard bindings strollers, paddle boards, hard-shell boats, any item with GPS technology, action cameras and accessories, fitness trackers, personal locator beacons, avalanche transceiver and airbag products.

    • JP Miller

      I didn’t go as far as paying for something, but when I put the code in for a direto, it applied the discount at checkout

    • Thx. Bit of a bummer for me. After I had seen the restriction, I finally decided to pull the trigger on a refurbished Kickr, as it was the same price as a new H3. For 20% off I certainly would have chosen the H3. Ah well.

    • Gene

      I can confirm that it worked on my order @ REI for a Tacx NEO 2T.

    • Myck

      I tried yesterday and was unable to use the 20% off coupon at REI on a Neo 2T. It essentially said that “..no items in the basket were valid for the discount” when I tried to do the coupon code for 20% off.

  5. BDS

    Anyone know if there’s a way to see what’s eligible for the 20% off without going all the way through the checkout processes?

    Since it says “Discounts not valid on…bike trainers…” I assume it’s not all of them and also hoping other things in that list have some exceptions too

  6. Robert

    Kickr Core worked for me through checkout.

  7. Thanks Ray! I’ve been looking for an excuse to upgrade my Tacx Vortex for the past four years and I just picked up a Kickr Core. Looking forward to this “road feel” and “inertia” and “accuracy” that people keep talking about.

  8. Juan C Zorrilla

    Thanks! Jus got me a Kickr climb for Xmas

  9. Hobe Scholz

    I continue to be a very frustrated REI member. 20% off Garmin at REI usually means it gets it down to the daily Amazon price.

    • JP Miller

      As *I* understand it, you can’t blame REI (or your local running/cycling shop) for selling Garmin at full retail. Garmin mandates their vendors sell at the published prices unless they (Garmin) have an approved sale going on at the time. When you see Amazon vendors selling at below retail they are doing so with the risk of being suspended as Garmin resellers

      Until today, the REI price and the Amazon price for Fenix 6 have been identical for as long at least the past 6 weeks (been looking since Prime Day, where pretty much only older models were on sale on Amazon)

    • Heinrich Hurtz

      Why be frustrated? You know what REI is and you are free to decide where to spend your money.

      REI doesn’t promote it self as a discounter They sell top notch brand names and maintain very nice brick and mortar stores in many locations. Unless there’s a specific sale or an item is on clearance, REI charges full list and members get a 10% rebate (15% if you use their CC). Sale and clearance items don’t get the 10% rebate (but still get the 5% CC rebate). If you use the CC with the current 20% coupon, that’s a 25% discount. All that can lead to pretty decent deals, but maybe not the best deals, and certainly not everyday.

  10. rz606

    Hey Ray – are these Wahoo AXIS feet recommended? Do they help with fatigue on the trainer?

    • Peter B

      I purchased them and my experience is the opposite of Ray’s – really glad I bought them! I’m 5’10”, 165lbs and found the medium feet really give a far more comfortable and natural ride compared to pre-installing them. I find myself less fatigued after long rides, and sprinting feels a lot more natural

    • Michael

      I upgraded to the Axis feet. Only have about three rides on them, but really like them, 205lb I use the large ones. Not a lot of sway, but enough to make a difference on the backside.

  11. Richard M

    Wahoo! Had an order for the Flux S but def getting a Kickr core instead. Awesome and thanks for this.

  12. Scott Bentrup

    Seems that it might have been an error on the REI side because I just tried to order a KICKR CORE and it is not applying the code.

  13. Kelsey

    No dice for me with the Kickr Core, it’s telling me that it doesn’t qualify.

  14. Neil

    Yeah, none of the trainers work for this code on REI. Probably should remove this post.

  15. Nighthawk700

    Ray, what’s your link/code for REI in general? I know you had it up at one point, but I’m not finding it. I’m considering the Aerobars at REI for doing some duathlons next year. The 20% might finally push me over, if I don’t use on something else.

  16. keni-jinga

    FYI Coupon code GEARUP2020 does not appear to be valid for trainers at REI.


    Will ROI honor the trainer discount if it was purchased before it was pulled?

  18. Pubpedaler

    Some additional info on the topic of upcoming sales, I sent a query to Clever Training today about the upcoming semi-annual VIP 20% only to learn it is unlikely to happen. Here is their reply—
    Clever Training: “At this time we do not have any information regarding upcoming promotions and sales. The best way to be one of the first to learn about upcoming promotions, sales or new product releases is to sign up for our company newsletter. However, I do not believe we will run the usual VIP 20% sale this November but if that changes the newsletter can notify you of that!”

  19. John

    The REI discount on trainers must have been a mistake, because I read the fine print a week ago and it said they wouldn’t be valid for the sale, which led to me biting the bullet and paying full price for the Core. They must be selling so well right now that no one sees a need to discount them.

  20. DZ

    Do we expect deals on Garmin Forerunner 245 music on Black Friday?

  21. Rob Campbell

    I would encourage folks to consider not purchasing from Amazon just to save a few bucks over a local business (if possible). Retailers are suffering during these times … Amazon is not.


  22. Jeff Stuart

    Not sure if you’ve noticed but any of the “product deals” sections you have in your RSS feed that show up in Feedly are pretty much unreadable. Any chance you can change the formatting so they show up in a nicer layout?

    link to photos.app.goo.gl

  23. Mike S.

    I take it the Garmin Vector 3S is just a single pedal?

  24. Danila

    Hey Ray,

    When can we expect a 2020-2021 Sports Tech Buyers Guide? Is it by any chance coming before mid/late December? I’m debating which new GPS watch to buy and could definitely use your advice in that area, esp. with black friday coming soon 🙂

  25. Peter Z.

    I know it’s not as feature rich and capable for sports, but the new-this-year Fitbit Charge 4 is $50 off, from $150 to $100, You have at least reviewed those.

  26. Ben B

    How about the Garmin Fenix 5s plus sapphire, is this a good deal (€399)? How does it compare to the fenix 6s pro sapphire these days. I’ve read the review of the 6s, but i believe loads of the software based items are now available on the 5s plus too? So it’s mainly the hardware based items that wil differ like Pulse Ox, Batterylife, size (thickness). Am i correct or am i missing something?

    • Hmm. I’d say it could go a touch lower. But not much. We saw it on sale in the US for $349 a month ago by Amazon. So my guess is we’ll see that or slightly lower in EU for Black Friday.

      For the most part, very few of the Fenix 6 features ended up on Fenix 5 Plus – almost none really. So I’d look at it more a case of if you’re happy with the features on the Fenix 5 Plus – its a solid unit

  27. stephen vallance


    Any chance the 945 is going to go on sale or should I grab a fenix 6?

  28. Sam Garchik

    Did I see the wahoo kickr on for 999 at rei?

  29. Joshua

    Thinking of grabbing a Fenix 6S with the $150 off, but hesitant with a possible 7 coming out soon. Do you have any info on that? Thanks so much.

  30. Brett Erickson

    Is there any reason that the Fenix 6 watches are being discounted so heavily? Are they trying to indicate that a Fenix 7 is right around the corner?

  31. Tom

    Hi Ray,
    Just a heads up — Sam’s Club has special on Fenix 5 plus for $330 — starting today.
    I’m tempted to upgrade or perhaps waiting to see about a FR 945 (for no other reason than the weight difference).

  32. jD

    Second time that there is a hefty discount on the Garmin Instinct. Is this more likely due to there likely to be a newer model soon, or that Garmin’s happy to sell them and then make money on the subscription?

  33. Peter

    Is there any point in mulling a Fenix 6 vs Coros Pace 2? I have an additional benefit (that only applies to garmins) that would put the Fenix 6 at $100 CAD more than the Pace 2 …

    • Robert B

      Depends on what’s of value to you Peter. Do you need pulse ox? I didn’t.
      Do you use maps? I did but only on foreign vacations, where I’d also take my phone, which I wouldn’t do at home in the UK. Lastly do you use music? I don’t, I like to hear what’s going on around me, like the time a riderless motorcycle came sliding up the road not two meters away from me.

      So yeah I sold my F6 Pro and got the coros pace 2, mainly for it’s full support of my stryd power meter. But I’ve done pace based workouts with distance from stryd too and that also seems pretty stable. Sold my index scale and got a withings one that integrates with runalyze. I’m chuffed with the setup I have now.

      Only potential negative if your unwilling/unable to pay for example Runalyze/trainingpeaks is that natively you do get far more info on Garmin connect than you do on the coros app.

    • Peter Vanleeuwen

      Thanks Robert! That’s very helpful. Indeed the things you mentioned are my situation as well. I rarely listen to music ( though if I could somehow load an audio book ). I also rarely use Garmin connect. One thing I am curious about are the first beat metrics ( like body battery, all day hr tracking with high and low warnings, sleep tracking). Are those features worth the 100 extra? Or is that super Coros battery really win the day?

    • Robert B

      Hope I’m not too late for you to get a deal,

      I pretty much never used any of the firstbeat features. As mentioned I outsource everything. However the readiness metric made me laugh. Some days I’d feel lousy and sluggish and it’d say +5, other days I’d feel great and it’d say -2. Your milage may vary when it comes to built in metric side of things but as said I laughed/took it with a pinch of salt. Both are good devices in their own way. But I train with power and coros hits it out the park

  34. Hello

    I was searching for last years deals to see if I can expect something on the DJI Mini 2. It seems that you code things in way that’s there is a « deal table » am I right ?
    I keep seeing this latest deals table on other years page.


    • Correct, it’s a dynamic table in all locations. I do have historical information saved for the most part (better data on more popular products, less updated data on smaller/less popular products).

      That said, I can pretty much answer that question off-hand. No sale on the Mini 2 this year. Instead, DJI is running a sale on the Mini 1, which kinda matches what they did last year with running older products on sale.

  35. Peter Z.

    Garmin just dropped “Flash Sale” on whole bunch of devices -Venu ($249), VA4 ($249), Instinct ($169!)

  36. Steve

    The Fenix 6 Pro is available for £450 from John Lewis in the UK, which I think is as low as it’s been.

    @Ray, it seems both 20% REI and Backcountry links in the intro go to REI!

  39. Samuel Garchik

    Ray – Im looking at getting a Varia 800 light, urban edition. The mount alone is like, what? 40 bucks from Garmin? and I think I can use it with my edge 1030? Am I wrong?

    Do those ever go on sale? If so, do you recall where or when and at what price?

    Also, iyho, how does that compare with the bontrager (ion RT and Flare) price not being an object (IE – I have a varia radar, and could use the same mount for the varia as the bontrager ion rt, etc..). ?

    thanks and keep up the good work. What were those tacx neos on sale at rei for this am, btw?

    Garmin Venu for 159 pounds equal to around 180 euros. Amazing deal.

    Stages l10 only went to $104. Still a good deal, just not 75$ good ?

    • Hmm, weird. I’ll ask, supposed to be $75.

    • J Fants

      $74.99 from Clever Training at the moment.
      Order from their ebay store for free shipping at same price for just the unit itself (No $99 free shipping minimum as with their website).

      Also Ray – lots of deals on Garmin watches from “Kohls” in the US. Pricing is the same or slightly higher than deals from other retailers running sales, but you get a not insignificant amount of “Kohls Cash” to spend on a future order (time period applies).

      For example – $250 for Venu + buyer receives $75 in Kohls Cash to spend on whatever else they sell.

      Still $104. Any update

    @Ray, do you have any idea to what price the Fenix 6S Pro should go in Europe? I see them around €560 now? Is that supposed to drop more?

    • Since there’s no MAP in Europe (Minimum Advertised Price policies), it’s the wild west when it comes to Black Friday…which is great for consumers. Whereas in the US, we know already that the Fenix 6 won’t be any lower than what we see, except if a retailer accidentally makes a mistake – since they’ll get a 6-month ban by Garmin for even going a cent lower.

      In any case, earlier this year we saw them dip into the mid-500EUR range, so not much more below what you’re seeing them. My bet is we’ll see one of the Amazon’s (probably Amazon IT or ES) do a quick drop to something like 499EUR for a few hours. Stay tuned to Twitter!

      Garmin Fenix 6s Sapphire €590 @ Amazon.it, sharpest deal i’ve seen so far! Dont know how to change the link into one with Ray’s affiliation in it.

    • Good find!

      Starting tomorrow sometime the Europe deals page tracker will be lit up (well, table, it’ll be on this same page).

      Also, you can always paste Amazon links here and they’ll automagically get converted to help support the site!

      Insomnia means one can see Fenix 6x Pro l just for 510 euro. Just switch from the expensive France to cheap Germany and you can see it too.

    • Lowlevel

      There you have it: €499 @ amazon.de
      link to amazon.de

    • Boom, thanks for sharing! Added to the newly created Euro deals list, and adding about 5-10 more deals as we speak in that section too.

      But I’d be surprised if we see it any lower than 499EUR, or 521 for the Fenix 6 Pro (non-S).

    Thanks for the updates! I tried the code for the NPE CABLE and it is invalid. Was there a specific timeframe for the discount?

    Looking for a tri smartwatch with a smaller size. Using a fitbit v2 now. Not a fan of massive sized watches. Like to find a garmin model if possible?


    Thank you,
