Updated Dec 24th, 2016: Last day for many sales, especially Garmin ones!

It’s that time of year again when there are tons of sales on all sorts of sports technology items.  Everything this year is pointing to earlier sales than normal, as manufacturers and retailers alike try to lock in your dollars ahead of time.

The typical ebb and flow of this time period is:

Pre-Thanksgiving deals: These are everything ahead of the US Thanksgiving, on November 24th. These are and will be more pronounced this year than in past years.
Black Friday deals: These are tied to Black Friday (BF), on November 25th. Some span that weekend.  Generally speaking most retailers have access to the same major deals (i.e. Garmin, Fitbit, etc…).
Cyber Monday deals: These are on Monday, November 28th. Occasionally they spill into that Tuesday as well.
General December deals: We tend to see ‘repeats’ of some deals in the mid-December time-frame (usually around the 10th-15th). These are rarely better than BF deals, but usually quite good.

Most deals aren’t announced until a few days prior, if any prior announcement at all.  Some deals have a specific quantity of items attached, which may be a few or a ton.  And others are very time-limited, like Amazon deals.  Note that while many deals are US-focused, in recent years we’ve seen Europe really get into the Black Friday/Cyber Monday side. So definitely good news there!

With that – let’s get into it!  I’ll update the list and cross things off as we move through the season:

Current Deals!

currentdeals

Here’s what’s currently active.  The ones I feel are the best bang for the buck, have a little * at the front of them.  Of course, many of these are great deals if you’re in the market for it already.  It’s just the ones with the stars are exceptionally unusual.

You can also find all Garmin product deals here and all general Holiday Deals here.

Garmin Vivofit Jr.$79 $49 13%Starting 11/24/2016Clever TrainingAmazon

Note I do not expect any further Garmin deals this season beyond these.  And obviously, don’t expect any new product announcements from anyone at this point.  The time is over for new products.  The next time that train arrives at the station is CES 2017 (first week of January).

Here’s my very brief notes on why you see some of these products and whether they make sense to purchase.

Forerunner series: With the FR230/235/630 only a year old, I don’t see a near term replacement there.  This to me just seems like a typical Black Friday type sale of a 1yr+ old product.  With the FR920XT, that’s two years old.  Given the FR735XT came out this past summer (not an exact replacement, but kinda close), I think we’ll see Garmin continue to wait on a direct FR920XT replacement for the near-medium term.

Fenix3 series: Garmin has pretty much established a yearly cadence of Fenix series units.  2014 saw the Fenix2, 2015 saw the Fenix3, 2016 saw the Fenix3 HR, and I suspect 2017 will bring whatever is next. In all recent cases, these products were announced at CES in early January, but not available until the February-April timeframe (depending on exact product).

Vivo Series: These are Garmin’s favorites to discount, since they have a much wider appeal.  I see these sales as ‘simply keeping up with everyone else’s sales’, and by ‘everyone else’, I mean Fitbit.  I wouldn’t read into these too much other than being good deals. Oh, and for Vivofit Jr, that was just announced last month – so these sales are just a vehicle to get more exposure there.

Edge Series: While the Edge 1000 may be due for an update, any release cycle there would likely be tied to late Spring (i.e. Sea Otter announcement), which Garmin has favored in recent years for announcing products.  In the meantime, it continues to get new features on a near monthly basis.  As for the Edge 20, not sure there, seems like it just came along for the ride.

TomTom Deals:

TomTom Runner – $69 (normally $129)
*TomTom Spark – $89 (normally $149)
TomTom Spark Music – $129 (normally $199)
*TomTom Spark Music + Cardio  – $174 (normally $249)
TomTom Spark Music + Cardio w/headphones – $224 (normally $299)

Note that the ‘Cardio’ version means it has optical HR in it.  My review of all these watches can be found here (Runner) and here (Spark).  Note, I see absolutely no logical reason why you’d get the older Runner vs the Multisport Spark, given they are the same price and the Spark has more features.

Everything else!

And then there’s a ton more things:

There are no deals currently.

Top Deals You Ordered Weekend:

I thought it’d be fun to list the Top 10 Sports Tech items people ordered over the weekend, using links from the site.  They are:

Fitbit Charge 2
Garmin Forerunner 920XT
Garmin Fenix3
Garmin Vivoactive HR
Garmin Vivofit Jr. (WTF?)
Garmin FR235
Garmin Vivosmart HR+
PowerTap P1s power meter pedals
PowerPod power sensor
Scosche Rhythm+ optical HR sensor

The major pattern was basically the most heavily discounted options.  The Vivofit Jr was definitely the surprise there, as was the P1s (which is the left-only one).  The others made sense, as they were all major discounts on things.  All of these are linked above, and all of them as of Monday, are still on-sale for quite a discount.

European Deals!

eurodeals

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 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 duplicates across the sites.

ProductSale PriceAmazonOther siteSale Notes
Apple Watch Series 7 (41mm) - $100 off
$399/$499 (cellular)
$299⚡This is a pretty solid deal. Obviously, we're probably less than a month from new Apple Watch units coming out (usually mid-September), but the Series 7 is getting all the new WatchOS 9 features, including the new triathlon mode and running power.
Beats PowerBeats Studio Buds - $50 off
$149
$99⚡I've been using these since last summer, primarily on my indoor workouts, but also on some of my runs (for example, in testing out most watches with music). I like them and they've become my go-to buds.
Apple TV 4K (32GB) for Zwift - $60 off$119⚡⚡ I use this for almost all my Zwifting. This is a fantastic deal for the latest edition, which runs Zwift, RGT, FulGaz, Rouvy, and more.
Garmin Rally Power Meters - 10% off
$649/$1,099 (SINGLE/DUAL)
From $999This is a reasonably solid deal, since Garmin Rally isn't often on sale. This covers all the variants, so SPD, SPD-SL, and LOOK KEO compatible.
SanDisk 256GB Extreme Pro microSD Card - 39% off
$39
$24This is one of the two variants I use in all my gear (the other being the 256GB version, which doesn't appear on sale quite yet, but if you click this link you can see both variants, often it goes on sale for a few hours at a time).
Garmin Instinct Solar - $150 off
$399/$449
$199⚡ This is the best deal we've seen on the original Instinct Solar edition. Keep in mind the newer Instinct 2 series came out this past February, but at a significantly higher price than this.
Garmin Forerunner 945 - $200 Off
$599/599EUR
$379⚡Officially this is $200 off, but realistically the FR945 (non-LTE) floats at about $520 most of the year, so it's really only about $140 off the norm. Still, it's a pretty solid deal. Keep in mind the FR955 came out last month at $499 though.
DJI Action 2 Dual-Screen Combo Edition - 45% off$299
Apple TV 4K (64GB) for Zwift - $70 off$129⚡⚡ I use this for almost all my Zwifting. This is a fantastic deal for the latest edition (the lowest we've ever seen), which runs Zwift, RGT, FulGaz, Rouvy, and more. There's no real reason to get the 64GB for Zwift compared to the 32GB, however with the sale, it's still far cheaper to get the 64GB than the 32GB when it's not ons ale.
Withings Sleep Tracking Pad - 30% off$69Fun tidbit: I actually use this. Well, more specifically, I use the far older bedside clock version, but, the sensor is essentially the same. Simply that the new sensor doesn't require a bedside clock anymore. But, if you don't like wearing a wearable to bed, then this will still track all your nighttime stats.
Insta360 GO2 Action Cam - 15% off$262Both the 32GB and newer 64GB versions are on sale, with the 32GB version being $262 as opposed to the usual $299.
Garmin Enduro - $300 off
$799-$899
$499This is by far the lowest price we've seen on this watch. This is a watch purely focused on long battery life, at the expense of maps and music.
Withings Body+ WiFi Scale - 30% off$69I've long been a fan of the Withings WiFi scales, especially since they can connect/push data to so many platforms, including Zwift! Note that the Body+ simply includes more data.
Fitbit Luxe - 30% off$99
Fitbit Charge 5 - $30 off
$149
$104This is the lowest price we've seen on the Fitbit Charge 5 to date (by far).
Fitbit Inspire 2 - 33% off
$99
$66
Garmin Fenix 6S Pro - $200 off$399⚡This is for the Garmin Fenix 6S Pro (which is the smaller one), and has the full maps/music/wifi, which the base model doesn't. At $399, it's the lowest price we've seen it. Keep in mind the Fenix 7 came out earlier this year, and the Forerunner 955 just last month. Still, for $399 it's hard to beat.
Garmin Venu SQ - $30 off!
$199/$249 with Music
$159
Garmin Forerunner 245 Music - $50 off$239This is the lowest price we've seen to date on the FR245 music (the previous low was $249), though, keep in mind the Forerunner 255 just came out last month.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 - $75 off$179This is the latest edition that came out last fall, now on Wear OS, and this is the lowest price to date.
Garmin Venu 2 - $130 off
$399
$269⚡⚡This is by far the lowest price we've seen on the Garmin Venu 2 series, which is Garmin's answer to the Apple Watch. The previous low is only $50 off. The Venu 2 Plus came out back in January, which adds voice/calling features, but otherwise the units are essentially the same.
Garmin Venu 2 - $130 off$269⚡⚡This is by far the lowest price we've seen on the Garmin Venu 2 series, which is Garmin's answer to the Apple Watch. The previous low is only $50 off. The Venu 2 Plus came out back in January, which adds voice/calling features, but otherwise the units are essentially the same.
Garmin Vivoactive 4S - $120 off$188⚡ This is Garmin's general-purpose sports/fitness watch, alongside the Garmin Venu 2 series. The Vivoactive 4 is getting a bit old now, but this is also the lowest price we've seen it to date. I've set it as $120 off, while Amazon says $140 off, but practically speaking it usually hovers around $300-$320
Garmin Vivoactive 4 - $120 off
$299
$188⚡ This is Garmin's general-purpose sports/fitness watch, alongside the Garmin Venu 2 series. The Vivoactive 4 is getting a bit old now, but this is also the lowest price we've seen it to date. I've set it as $120 off, while Amazon says $140 off, but practically speaking it usually hovers around $300-$320
Garmin Edge 1030 (with HR strap) - $200 off
$499
$449This really isn't that great of a deal. It's often far less than this, and this unit is now 2 generations behind (Edge 1030 Plus came out two years ago, and the Edge 1040 came out last month).
Garmin Varia RVR315 Radar - $50 off$99⚡ This is the lowest price to date on this radar. This variant doesn't have a taillight, so it's a bit smaller as a result. Same radar tech though, and compatible with Garmin/Stages/Hammerhead/Wahoo bike computers.
DJI Mini 2 Fly More Combo - 20% off ($120 off)$479This is a great little drone for quick shots that doesn't weigh much, or take up much space. While the Active Tracking capabilities (for sports) are fairly limited, you can make it follow briefly for creative shots. I've got an entire video on that in my review.
Apple Watch Series 7 (41mm) - $120 off
$399/$499 (cellular)
$279⚡⚡ This is now the lowest price we've seen on the unit, for Amazon Prime Day, down to $279
Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Series - $150 off
$549-$1,149
$449This is for the Garmin Fenix 6 Pro variants, which means it has the full maps/music/wifi, which the base model doesn't. The Fenix 7 came out earlier this year, and the Forerunner 955 just last month.
Apple Watch Series 7 (45mm) - $120 off
$399/$499 (cellular)
$309⚡⚡ This is now the lowest price we've seen on the unit, for Amazon Prime Day, down to $309
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.
Polar Grit X Pro - $120 off
$499/$599
$379This is one of the first times we've seen the Polar Grit X Pro on sale, which came out last fall.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic - $50 off$299This is the latest edition that came out last fall, now on Wear OS. While the Watch 4 Classic has a few quirks, I'd argue it's the best wearable Samsung has made to date.
Apple TV 4K (32GB) for Zwift - $70 off$109⚡⚡ I use this for almost all my Zwifting. This is a fantastic deal for the latest edition (the lowest we've ever seen), which runs Zwift, RGT, FulGaz, Rouvy, and more.
Samsung T7 Portable SSD 1-2TB - 21% off$109I use a small fleet of these T7 SSD's for various video projects, alongside the Sandisk SSD's. I literally have one of each color, just to keep things simple. They work great for quick storage.
Beats PowerBeats Pro Wireless Sport Headphones - $50 off
$249
$199I like the PowerBeats Pro with the over-the-ear design, for more security in workouts. I use these as well as my Beats Studio Buds (and have used the PowerBeats Pro ones longer).
KOM Cycling Trainer Desk - 30% off$69I bought and reviewed this desk a year ago, and really like it. In fact, it's still the one I've been using lately (I also like the other ones too, but for no particular reason I never swapped back). It's especially great if you've got a small space.
Beats PowerBeats Studio Buds - $50 off
$149
$99⚡I've been using these since this summer, primarily on my indoor workouts, but also on some of my runs (for example, in testing out most watches with music). I like them and they've become my go-to buds.
GoPro Hero 10 Black Battery Bundle - $150 off$399This is $399 (without any GoPro subscription required), and includes not just an extra battery, but the dual battery charger. Solid little deal!
DJI Air 2S Fly More Combo - $260 off$1,039This is DJI's latest mid-range drone (the highest-end consumer drone being the Mavic 3, and then the Mini 3 being the budget option that just came out).
Suunto 9 Peak - $114 off
$569
$455This is one of the first times we've seen the Suunto 9 Peak on sale, which came out last summer.
Garmin HRM-PRO - 23% off!
$129
$99The HRM-PRO is Garmin's top-end chest strap, which transmits Running Dynamics information, running power, as well as saves HR data during swims and other watch-less activities.
Synology 4 bay NAS DiskStation DS920+ (Diskless) - $100 off$449⚡ 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.
Jackery Portable Power Station - $124 off$175This 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. I've even bought a solar panel to hook up to it (surprisingly effective). Heck, I've even powered a KICKR trainer ride from it!
Saris H3 (Hammer 3) Smart Trainer - $405 off!
$1,099
$694This is a very solid deal for this trainer, especially for ERG (workout) mode. It's not quite as good of a deal as the $400 price back a month ago in the fire-sale event they did. But hey, can't win em all. Note that Saris did put themselves up for sale two weeks ago.
SanDisk 1-2TB Extreme PRO Portable External SSD - 60% off$129-$180⚡This 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 traveling or at home. The 2TB version is $229 (50% off).
Wahoo ELEMNT ROAM - $100 off
$379
$299⚡This is by far the lowest price we've seen on the Wahoo ELEMNT ROAM, down to $299, from it's usual $399.
Anker PowerCore III 10K Wireless Portable Charger with18W USB-C - 20% off$39I bought this unit this past spring and it's worked pretty well in my battery charging arsenal, especially for the summer season. Specifically, I went with this wireless charging bank because in the summer my phone often gets wet (and thus, the wired charging port needs to dry out a bit) - such as at the beach/lake/etc... This solves that, but can still fast-charge things wired too, for days my phone hasn't gone for a swim.
Apple Airpods (3rd Gen) - $40 off!$140
Apple Airpods Pro - $80 off
$249
$169
Adobe Creative Cloud (12 months) - $220 off$479I use Adobe Creative Cloud daily in editing, both photos as well as tidbits of video. But mostly photos. For video I primarily use Final Cut Pro, but occasionally Premier Pro. Point is, if you use Adobe Creative Cloud, you know this is a very solid deal (note the checkbox on the product page for the Prime savings).
Garmin Epix Sapphire White Titanium - Actually in stock$1,000This isn't on sale at all, however, it might feel like it. Cause this is the first time since launch the Sapphire Editions are actually in-stock and at list prices. Thus, I figured I'd mention it here. 🤣🤣🤣
Garmin Edge 1030 Plus - $150 off
$599
$449⚡This is the lowest price we've seen to date on the Edge 1030 Plus, far surpassing last spring's $100 off sale. The Edge 1030 Plus came out June 2020, but has continued to receive numerous firmware updates/features, and is Garmin's top-end unit.
Garmin Forerunner 945 - $200 Off
$599/599EUR
$399⚡Officially this is $200 off, but realistically the FR945 (non-LTE) floats at about $520 most of the year, so it's really only about $120 off the norm. Still, a fantastic deal.
Garmin Venu 2/2S - $50 off
$399
$349Not too bad a deal. Nothing crazy, and not on the Venu 2 Plus with calling features.
Garmin Forerunner 745 - $150 off
$499/499EUR
$349⚡ This is a solid deal on a very capable watch. More notably, it's also the watch I've long used when I'm not testing other things (and still use to compare things). While it doesn't have the onboard maps of the FR945, since I'm not traveling as much, it doesn't bother me. Of course, keep in mind that with all the Garmin units on sale, the price differences to map-inclusive units aren't very much. It's also the lowest price we've seen on the FR745 ever.
Garmin Forerunner 945 LTE - $200 off
$649
$449⚡This is by far the lowest price we've seen on the FR945 LTE. The previous sale last Black Friday was only $100 off. So this is solid!
Garmin Epix Sapphire Black Titanium - Actually in stock$1,000This isn't on sale at all, however, it might feel like it. Cause this is the first time since launch the Sapphire Editions are actually in-stock and at list prices. Thus, I figured I'd mention it here. 🤣🤣🤣
Garmin Forerunner 55 - $30 off
$199
$169Oddly enough, this is actually the first record of a sale I have on the FR55. It's not a bad deal, but also not crazy either.
Garmin Varia Radar (RTL515) - $50 off$149This is Garmin's standalone radar+taillight option, and $149 is pretty much the standard sale-price. While Garmin just announced their new RCT715 radar that includes a camera and taillight, that's $399 (and not on sale).
Garmin Forerunner 245 & 245 Music - $75 off
$299/$349
$225Both the Forerunner 245 & 245 Music are on sale for $75 off. This is neither a huge sale, nor the lowest we've seen them (previous low was $199 last Black Friday).
Garmin Feinx 6 Base - Just $299!!!
$549-$1,149
$299⚡⚡⚡This is an insane price, and by far the lowest we've ever seen for the Fenix 6 series. In this case it's the base unit, so it lacks music/maps/WiFi, but has Garmin Pay and countless other features. Plus, it's still getting feature updates - even as of last week.

Wahoo POWRLINK ZERO (Dual-sided) - $200 off!
$649/$999(single/dual)
$800⚡This is the first time we've seen the POWRLINK Zero pedals on sale, and thus far, about 4-5 months since launch - people seem really happy with them (as am I, it's become part of my testing rotation due to strong accuracy). Requires REI membership, using coupon code with REI link here: ANNIV22

Requires REI membership, using coupon code with REI link here: ANNIV22
Ooni Fyra 12 Wood Fired Outdoor Portable Pizza Oven - $70 off!$279⚡ I know, I know, I still owe everyone a review. Nonetheess, almost a year later, I love this thing. We use it for more than pizza too, notably steaks (to get a really crispy sear). But a lot of pizza. It's completely portable, even easily fitting on our cargo bike. Note that I went with this model, the cheapest one they make, as I realized that buying the higher-end models that that support gas didn't make much sense for me. I have a gas grill already (and could easily just put a stone on it). Similarly, while a large 16" is appealing, realistically I've found this 12" more than enough for pretty substantial personal pizzas (and it makes it easier to handle). Full in-depth review pretty soon. (REI link at side seems to still have stock at the sale price)
Garmin Rally RS100 (SPD-SL Single Sided) - 20% off$520⚡ This is a very solid deal, and only the second time we've seen it on sale.

Wahoo KICKR Bike - $270 off!
$3,499
$3,249This is a pretty solid deal on the KICKR Bike, if for no other reason than we haven't really seen much in the way of KICKR Bike sales (except Zwift's clearance event recently). Note officially it lists the retail price as $3,800, but I don't think that's actually the real retail price lately. It's always been $3,500

Most Suunto Watches 30-40% off!
$599 (non-baro is $499)
From $199+Suunto is running a sale on a bunch of watches, though, which ones are on sale varies by region. In the US, it's only their older watches (non-Peak), whereas in Europe it includes the Peak watches. The older watches is pretty much normal everyday 30% off pricing for them (as has been the last 6-8 months). But the Peak ones are solid deals.
DJI Mavic 3 - $150 off
$999
$2,049⚡This is the first time we've seen the DJI Mavic 3 on sale (for a non-bundled deal). With all the firmware improvements since the fall, it's finally getting to a more stable place in terms of features.
DJI Action 2 Dual-Screen Combo Edition - $80 off$439All of the DJI Action 2 kits are 15-20% off (depending on the variant you choose), which is the first time we've seen the Action 2 on sale since launch.
DJI Mavic 3 Fly More Combo - $150 off$2,849⚡This is the first time we've seen the DJI Mavic 3 on sale (for a non-bundled deal). With all the firmware improvements since the fall, it's finally getting to a more stable place in terms of features. This is for the full bundle, which includes extra batteries (3 total), ND filters, extra props, and the battery charging station. Note this does not include the RC Pro remote (but does include the base/normal remote).

Fitbit Charge 5 - $30 off
$149
$129This is more or less a standard sale for the Fitbit Charge 5.
DJI Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo - $200 off$799This is a pretty solid deal, as we don't tend to see discounts this big on DJI drones except Black Friday-ish timeframe.
Garmin Forerunner 45/45S - $30 off
$199
$139This is a good deal, though, keep in mind that the Forerunner 55 came out two years ago. So the 'normal' list price of $199 for the FR45 isn't really true anymore (that's the newer FR55 list price). Thus this is roughly $30 off. In any case, it's a great running watch.
DJI FPV Combo - $300 off!$999This is only the 2nd time we've seen the FPV combo on sale, saving you $300. This includes the drone, FPV goggles, and controller.
Apple Watch Series 7 - $70 off
$399/$499 (cellular)
$329⚡⚡ This is now the lowest price we've seen on the unit (as of April 4th), for a one-day sale down to $329.
Apple Watch SE - $30 off
$279
$249This isn't a super big deal, but hey, if you're in the market, a deal is a deal.
Garmin Edge 530 MTB Bundle - $50 off$319⚡ This matches last year's Black Friday sale, and is the lowest price to date on the Edge 530 MTB Bundle. This is one of the main units I use for my day-to-day riding and testing.
Garmin Edge 830 Sensor Bundle - $50 off$419⚡ While this isn't a big sale, it's actually the lowest price the unit/bundle has been offered in the 3 years since release - matching Black Friday from this past year.
Garmin Edge 530 Sensor Bundle - $50 off$349⚡ This matches last year's Black Friday sale, and is the lowest price to date on the Edge 530 Sensor Bundle. This is one of the main units I use for my day-to-day riding and testing.
Garmin Varia RVR315 Radar - $50 off$99⚡ This is the lowest price to date on this radar. This variant doesn't have a taillight, so it's a bit smaller as a result. Same radar tech though, and compatible with Garmin/Stages/Hammerhead/Wahoo bike computers.
Garmin Edge 830 Cycling GPS - $50 off
$399
$349⚡ While this isn't a big sale, it's actually the lowest price the unit has been offered in the 3 years since release - matching Black Friday from this past year.

Suunto 5 GPS Multisport Watch - 40% off!
$329
$179⚡ A very strong deal for this complete multisport watch that I really like. Well nailed on price here.
Insta360 GO2 Action Cam - 13% off$269Both the 32GB and newer 64GB versions are on sale, with the 32GB version being $269 as opposed to the usual $299
Garmin Vivoactive 4S - $80 off$219
GoPro Hero 10 Black - $50 off
$449
$449Amazon now has the Hero 10 Black for $50 off the retail price of $499. This does *NOT* require the GoPro subscription (previously called GoPro Plus). However, if you want to subscribe to that, then you can get the camera for $399 instead. Food for thought. Either way, the Hero 10 has become my daily action cam (well, actually, I bought two of them).
Apple Airpods (2nd Gen) - $44 off
$159
$114These aren't quite the newest generation (those came out a month or so ago), but they are $44 off, and the one I personally use myself.
Insta360 One R Action Cam - 15% off$467The 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.
Saris H3 (Hammer 3) Smart Trainer - $240 off!
$1,099
$860⚡⚡ One of the top three trainers, but by far the top trainer on the market for ERG mode (so if you're a TrainerRoad user - this be the one!).
DJI Mavic Mini Fly More Combo Kit - 24% off$399
4iiii Precision Ride-Ready Power Meters - 14% off$258This includes the Shimano DuraAce, Ultegra, and 105 units, at between 11-14% off depending on which exact model you select.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus Wireless Earbuds - 33% off$99
Elite Suito-T Smart Trainer - 10% off!

Elite Tuo Smart Trainer - 7% off

Fitbit Charge 5 - $50 off
$149
$129This is the first time we've seen the newly released Charge 5 on sale. Also of note is that just this week it got ECG support via a firmware update, and Fitbit Daily Readiness score via firmware update.
SanDisk 1-2TB Extreme PRO Portable External SSD - 50% off$129⚡This 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 traveling or at home. The 2TB version is $180 (50% off).
Garmin HRM-DUAL (ANT+/Bluetooth Smart Strap) - $15 off
$69
$56⚡ This is one of my go-to straps these days (ANT+ & two concurrent BLE connections). It's floated on and off being on sale, but this is about the lowest we've seen it.
SanDisk Extreme Pro 256GB MicroSD Card - 39% off!$43⚡I use this card in both 128GB and 256GB variety (but mostly 256GB nowadays), 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 pick up these cards when on sale like this, so I have them for later in the year when not on sale. // Update: Since this sale has begun, I've bought 6 of these cards to stockpile for future action cam/drone testing.
Apple Airpods Pro - $60 off
$249
$159⚡ By far the lowest price to date for this unit. Previously hovered around $179-$199
Samsung T7 Portable SSD 1-2TB - 24% off$129I use a small fleet of these T7 SSD's for various video projects, alongside the Sandisk SSD's. I literally have one of each color, just to keep things simple. They work great for quick storage.
Google Nest Mesh WiFi Router - 30% two-pack$200These 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. Ironically enough, I literally just installed another one at home tonight (Nov 20th, 2021) to provide better coverage in a dead spot in our 100 year-old home, for realz.
Amazon Halo View - 38% off$49Look, this thing isn't even shipping yet and it's already 38% off. But hey, if you want a good deal on a pre-order product that we don't know much about yet, then here ya go! I have ordered one, and will review it once it comes in.
Garmin RD Pod (Running Dynamics) - 11% off
$69
$62Ok, this is a pretty minor deal, but I noticed it so...figured I'd pass it along. Allows you to get not just Running Dynamics metrics, but also running power, on Garmin devices (not all devices, but most devices).
Suunto 7 Wear OS Watch - 42% off
$399
$229⚡ This is basically the lowest sale price we see for the Suunto 7 Wear OS powered watch. At this price, I'd say it's worth picking up, assuming you know the battery limitations and Wear OS version end of life limitations (meaning, this unit won't see any new versions of Wear OS).
Little Tikes Pelican Explore & Fit Cycle - 38% off$99So, the Three Peanuts (girls ages 2/4/5) have been testing this the last week, and so far, they love it. It's silly simple (there's no real connectivity here), and the videos they ride with are also absurdly laughable. Yet, they love it. Seriously, they fight over it. In-Depth review coming very very shortly. Until then, it's on sale (note: Add the 'Coupon' that shows up below the price to get the $99 price.
Suunto 9 Baro Series - 40% off
$599 (non-baro is $499)
$369At this point the Suunto 9 Baro has been surpassed by the Suunto 9 Peak. Still, if you prefer a bigger watch, it got most of the firmware updates of the Suunto 9 Peak anyway.
Polar Grit X - $110 off
$429
$340This is for certain editions (namey the white ones at the moment). Keep in mind the Grit X Pro came out a month or so ago, so that may limit new features for the Grit X going forward.
NordicTrack S22i Indoor Cycle Bike - $700 off$1,499This is considered the primary competitor to Peloton, and is generally rated/reviewed very highly. Note that I have not reviewed this bike, or ridden it. But I figured I'd mention it here in case folks are looking for a deal on it. With Peloton's new pricing, the base prices are basically the same - $1,495 for the Peloton Bike. Sorta like politics, people prefer one brand or the other. Also like Peloton - it DOES NOT support any open standards for apps like Zwift, TrainerRoad, etc... Do NOT buy it (or Peloton) for that purpose.
Fitbit Sense - $100 off!
$329
$199This is the lowest price to date for the Fitbit Sense, 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).
GoPro Hero 9 Black - $50 off
$399
$349This price makes it a reasonably good deal, and about $100 cheaper than the lowest GoPro Hero 10 price (if you're not a GoPro subscriber). The changes between the Hero 9 and Hero 10 for most people are fairly minor. Whereas if you're pushing the limits (either spec-wise or sport-wise), then the Hero 10 can be worth it.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic - $50 off$299This is the latest edition that came out this past summer/fall, now on Wear OS, and the first time we've seen a notable sale on it. While the Watch 4 Classic has a few quirks, I'd argue it's the best wearable Samsung has made to date.
Rode Microphones Wireless GO II Mics - 20% off$279These are the mics that I use day in and day out for virtually everything, but most notably, when out running/riding (and all my crazy drone wind tests). I used to use the Wireless Go (original) system, but this is great because it has memory in it. So I can record audio on this, and then match it up with the footage later - ideal if I've got GoPro's or drones or such that may not have great on-board audio by themselves. Note that Amazon says this is 20% off, but I think it's more like $20-$30 off the regular price, unless the price has gone up substantially. Either way, I love them.
Polar H10 Chest Strap (Dual ANT+/Bluetooth Smart) - 5% off
$89
$85This is one of my main chest straps I use as a reference device in testing. Works great!
Withings Body WiFi Scale - 12% off
$59
$52I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the Withings WiFi Scale, they were the first in this category a gazillion years ago, and frankly, they're still basically the best in terms of partnerships and simplicity. It just works.
Skydio 2 - $400 off
$999/$1349
$949⚡⚡ This is a pretty incredible deal. First, because it's really the first time it's been on sale. Second, because it's $400 off. And third, because it's actually in stock. It's by far the best drone for sports action footage, as it's fully autonomous. It's less ideal for general drone cinematography, however. So you kinda have to decide what you want out of a drone. But for sports, this is the one.
Peloton Bike+ is $200 off$2,295This is a solid deal for the Bike+, following a $350 off deal over Black Friday. Both my wife and I use both the Peloton Bike+ and the regular Bike (one at home, one at office) on a weekly basis. We like both. The Bike+ is more accurate than the regular bike, and also has a bigger screen and automatic resistance control. That said, the core Peloton experience isn't any different between the two - it's the same platform there.
Ooni Fyra 12 Wood Fired Outdoor Portable Pizza Oven - 20% off$279⚡ I love this thing. We use it for more than pizza too, notably steaks (to get a really crispy sear). But a lot of pizza. It's completely portable, even easily fitting on our cargo bike. Note that I went with this model, the cheapest one they make, as I realized that buying the higher-end models that that support gas didn't make much sense for me. I have a gas grill already (and could easily just put a stone on it). Similarly, while a large 16" is appealing, realistically I've found this 12" more than enough for pretty substantial personal pizzas (and it makes it easier to handle). Full in-depth review pretty soon.
Garmin Venu SQ - $30 off!
$199/$249 with Music
$169
Garmin Instinct Solar - $87 off
$399/$449
$312There's also the non-solar version for $169, but keep in mind that's got significantly different features. In many ways, the Garmin Instinct Solar is kinda like a Garmin Instinct 2.0.
Beats PowerBeats Pro Wireless Sport Headphones - $70 off
$249
$179⚡ I like the PowerBeats Pro with the over-the-ear design, for more security in workouts. I use these as well as my Beats Studio Buds (and have used the PowerBeats Pro ones longer). $70 off is a solid deal.
Apple Watch SE - $40 off
$279
$239This isn't quite the lowest price, but is close for the Apple Watch SE. And perhaps more interestingly, my testing over the last year (I continue to use it, including much of the late summer/early fall timeframe), shows that Apple has clearly worked on improving accuracy of it, with it being far more accurate in GPS than a year ago (HR continues to be very good as it was a year ago).
Apple Airpods Pro - $53 off
$249
$197Though, this price fluctuates as low as $159, so double-check the latest price to be sure it's now ower right now.
Garmin Vivoactive 4 - $70 off
$299
$229
NormaTec Pulse 2.0 Leg Recovery System - $100 off!$799While this isn't something I've personally used, I know a ton of you do very much love it. Go forth!
Tacx NEO 2T Smart Trainer - $150 off! (In Stock)
$1,399
$1,249⚡ This is a very rare sale for this trainer, if you're in the market, I wouldn't wait around for these units to disappear. Note it was slightly less on Black Friday at $200 off, but hey, a deal is a deal at this point.
Garmin Instinct - $85 off
$299
$165⚡While this isn't quite as good as the $149 prices we saw a week or so ago, it's still pretty solid. Note that different colors vary slightly in prices.
Garmin Varia RVR315 Radar - $25 off$125This variant doesn't have a taillight, so it's a bit smaller as a result. Same radar tech though, and compatible with Garmin/Stages/Hammerhead/Wahoo bike computers.
Wiral LITE Cable Cam with Remote - $100 off$299I've been using this nifty cable cam system for years with various action cameras, phones and small mirrorless cameras. It's not an everyday use item, but I do pull it out a handful of times per year for very specific/special shots through the trees (or the studio) where drones can't easily go. Defnitely more in the photo-geeky camp, but that's the camp I live in.
DJI FPV Combo - $250 off!$999This is the first time we've seen the FPV combo on sale, saving you $250. This includes the drone, FPV goggles, and controller.
Garmin HRM-SWIM Strap - $45 off!$54This is the slightly older pool-focused HRM-SWIM strap. It's really just designed for the pool and to get accurate HR data. These days it's been replaced by the HRM-PRO, though even that doesn't quite have the same stickiness level as the HRM-SWIM did.
Garmin Forerunner 745 - $100 off
$499/499EUR
$399⚡ This is a solid deal on a very capable watch. More notably, it's also the watch I primarily use as my daily sports tracking watch. While it doesn't have the onboard maps of the FR945, since I'm not traveling as much, it doesn't bother me. Of course, keep in mind that with all the Garmin units on sale, the price differences to map-inclusive units aren't very much.
Garmin Venu SQ - $70 off

CORE Body Temp Sensor - 20% off$216The CORE Body temp sensor measures your body core, and is used by numerous Pro Cycling teams. I haven't gotten a full review up, but have been using it on/off over the last year. It's pretty fascinating stuff. I believe this is the first sale they've had. On the sale side, they also have a bundle with a chest HRM as well that's on sale.
Peloton Bike - $200 off Accessory Bundle$1,495Essentially Peloton isn't lowering the price of the bike itself, but is throwing in the accessories for free (saving you $200). Thus making them the most expensive pair of cycling shoes and 5lbs weights known to man. But hey, if you were gonna buy them - then now you get them for free. Note that Peloton DOES NOT support any open standards for apps like Zwift, TrainerRoad, etc... Do NOT buy it for that purpose. It's a great bike that I and my wife use numerous times a week, but just use it for the Peloton platform.
Peloton Bike+ is $350 off$2,145This is a solid deal for the Bike+, and the first time we've seen it on discount. Both my wife and I use both the Peloton Bike+ and the regular Bike (one at home, one at office) on a weekly basis. We like both. The Bike+ is more accurate than the regular bike, and also has a bigger screen and automatic resistance control. That said, the core Peloton experience isn't any different between the two - it's the same platform there.

$79
$54
Garmin Enduro - $100 off
$799-$899
$699.This is the first time we've seen the Garmin Enduro on sale since its launch last winter. This is a watch purely focused on long battery life, at the expense of maps and music. The $899 version with the Titanium material is on sale for $799, while the regular $799 version is on sale for $699.

Stages Dash L50 - $75 off!
$299
$225The Stages Dash M50 & L50 are both $75 off. The L50 is the largest of the two (hence the L in the name), while the M50 is the smaller unit (M for Medium).
Withings Body+ WiFi Scale - 39% off$60I've long been a fan of the Withings WiFi scales, especially since they can connect/push data to so many platforms, including Zwift! Note that the Body+ simply includes more data.
Stages Dash M50 - $75 off!
$249
$174The Stages Dash M50 & L50 are both $75 off. The L50 is the largest of the two (hence the L in the name), while the M50 is the smaller unit (M for Medium).

Garmin Forerunner 245 - $50 off
$299/$349

Apple Watch Series 7 - 40mm - $20 off
$399/$499 (cellular)

Garmin Forerunner 245 Music - $50 off$249Both the Forerunner 245 & 245 Music are on sale for $50 off. While not a huge sale, it's actually the lowest we've seen either product priced to date. So, that's worth considering. The FR245 Music supports Spotify, Amazon Music, and other streaming platforms.
Garmin Edge 130 Plus - $50 off!
$199
$149The 'Plus' variant is notable compared to the regular unit for having ClimbPro on it, plus a handful of other tweaks. $149 is a good deal for it.
Garmin Instinct Solar - $150 off
$399/$449
$249⚡ A strong price for the unit, besting last year's Black Friday sale. There's also the non-solar version for $169, but keep in mind that's got significantly different features. In many ways, the Garmin Instinct Solar is kinda like a Garmin Instinct 2.0.
Garmin Edge 530 Cycling GPS - $50 off!
$299
$249⚡ This matches last year's Black Friday sale, and is the lowest price to date on the Edge 530. This is one of the main units I use for my day-to-day riding and testing.
Garmin Varia RVR315 Radar - $50 off$99⚡ This is the lowest price to date on this radar. This variant doesn't have a taillight, so it's a bit smaller as a result. Same radar tech though, and compatible with Garmin/Stages/Hammerhead/Wahoo bike computers.
Garmin Forerunner 945 - $100 Off
$599/599EUR
$499Officially this is $100 off, but realistically the FR945 (non-LTE) floats at about $520 most of the year, so it's really only about $20 off the norm.
Garmin Venu 2 - $50 off
$399
$349This is the first time the Venu 2 has been on sale since its announcement this past spring. It's not a huge deal, but hey, $50 is $50.
Peloton Tread - $250 off accessory bundle$2,515Like with the base Peloton Bike deal, this isn't lowering the base price, but just included $250 worth of accessories with it (weights, resistance bands, mat, and heart rate monitor). I picked up this model about a month ago and have begun testing. Thus far, I like it. I'm not sure I enjoy it as much as the bike, merely because I enjoy running even on colder and/or wetter days, more than I like cycling on cold/wet days.
KOM Cycling Trainer Desk - 20% off!$69I bought and reviewed this desk earlier this year, and really like it. In fact, it's still the one I've been using lately (I also like the other ones too, but for no particular reason I never swapped back). It's especially great if you've got a small space.
inReach Mini Satellite Communicator - $50 off$299This is the second year in a row the inReach Mini has gone on sale for Black Friday, though last year it was $100 off. Solid deal for a great little unit if you travel beyond cellular coverage. Plus, integration with Garmin watches has improved lately too.
Beats PowerBeats Pro Wireless Sport Headphones - $100 off
$249
$149⚡ I like the PowerBeats Pro with the over-the-ear design, for more security in workouts. I use these as well as my Beats Studio Buds (and have used the PowerBeats Pro ones longer). $100 off is a solid deal.
Tacx Flux 2 Smart Trainer - Normally $899
$899USD/€799

$299
$251This is the first time we've seen a deal on the new Polar Vantage M2!
Lumen Metabolism Tracker - Free Device (with subscription)$230This deal is a bit complicated at first glance, but basically the device is normally $199, and now you get the device for free but still need the subscription. So if you purchase the 12-month subscription it's $259USD, but then you can get $30 off using code THE5KRUNNER30, getting you down to $229. Works in Euros/GBP too. Note: I have not tested this device, and am kinda wishy-washy on it. But if you're looking for a deal, there ya go.
Garmin Edge 830 Cycling GPS - $50 off
$399
$349⚡ While this isn't a big sale, it's actually the lowest price the unit has been offered in the 2.5 years since release.

Garmin Forerunner 945 LTE - $100 off
$649
$549This is the first time we've seen the new FR945 LTE on sale. The unit came out back this summer, focused primarily on safety and tracking features via LTE connecton.
DJI Mini SE Drone Bundle$355This is a bundle with an extra battery, bag, and MicroSD, saving about $35 or so. It's not a huge deal, but it's pretty much the only one I've seen on the Mini SE specifically.
NormaTec Pulse 2.0 Leg Recovery System - $150 off!$749While this isn't something I've personally used, I know a ton of you do very much love it. Go forth!
Elgato Streamdeck - $50 off!$99I use the Elgato Streamdeck anytime I do any livestreams, as a way to control everything that's going on. It's super easy, and by far the most popular tool in the streaming world.
4iiii Fliiiight Smart Trainer- 20% off
$599
$439⚡ This is the totally silent trainer (it uses magnets). This is notable not only for the sale, but because it's basically the first time it's been back in stock in nearly a year.
GoPro Hero 10 Black Extra Battery Accessory Bundle - $100 off$449⚡This is an AWESOME deal. Not only is it the $50 off of the other Hero 10 deal, but now you get an extra battery, the dual battery charge (which I use sitting on my desk right now), plus a lanyard you may or may not use (the case seen comes in every GoPro package). So basically, you get an extra battery and the dual charger for the same discount as the other deal. A no-brainer.
RunScribe Red Gait Lab FootpodsWhile RunScribe has transitioned from a consumer-focused running efficiency company to more of a pro/labs-focused company, consumers do still buy and use their products. They're offering 20% off for Black Friday. Use discount code RED20.
Tacx Boost Trainer - $50 off$249This is a very budget trainer, without any smarts (unless you buy the bundle, and even then, it's still not very smart). It's not my favorite trainer, but if you were trying to find it onsale, this is your chance.
Favero Assioma Duo Power Meter Pedals - $90 off!$549⚡ This is a strong deal from Favero, who is offering their Favero Assioma Duo pedals for 80-110EUR off. You'll pay the current exchange rate. The exact deal will vary based on which country you're shipping to.
FORM Swim Goggles (with heads-up display) - $20 off$179⚡ We don't often see deals on the FORM swim goggle (last Black Friday was the last time). So if you're looking to pick this up, this is the time to do so! Additionally, as part of this promo, you can then get 85% off their annual subscription plan (which isn't required to use the goggles) for $25, versus the normal $180.

Garmin Fenix 6 Series - $200 all models
$549-$1,149
From $349⚡⚡ This is the biggest deal we've seen on the Fenix 6 Series to date, making it an incredible deal for a watch this full-featured. Last year for Black Friday it was 'only' $150 off. This will also be the most you'll see the Fenix 6 discounted, as Garminnever undercuts their own sale later in the holiday (since that'll lead to returns/swaps). The base units start at $349, and the Pro units start at $499. Pro models have maps/music/wifi, while the base don't.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 - $50 off$229This is the latest edition that came out this past summer/fall, now on Wear OS, and the first time we've seen a notable sale on it.

Garmin Vivofit Jr - 50% off
$79
$39⚡While sometimes we see this down to $29, it's still a good deal at $39. Both my two older girls wear them, with my oldest always having it on, and the middle child mostly having it on. They both love them.
Therabody Theragun Elite - $100 off$299⚡ This is arguably my wife's favorite sports tech gadget. She uses it pretty much daily. Thus, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention this deal. Also, please don't tell her, she might just buy another one...
Apple Watch SE - $60 off
$279
$219This is the lowest price to date for the Apple Watch SE. And perhaps more interestingly, my testing over the last year (I continue to use it, including much of the late summer/early fall timeframe), shows that Apple has clearly worked on improving accuracy of it, with it being far more accurate in GPS than a year ago (HR continues to be very good as it was a year ago).
Garmin Swim 2 - 93EUR off!
$249
156EURThis is another fantastic deal on Amazon Germany.
Fitbit Luxe - 30% off$99
COROS Vertix - $100 off
$599
$499This is the original COROS Vertix, but keep in mind it just got full mapping support a couple weeks ago, and then over the next week gets another slate of solid features. That's pretty impressive. Also of note is that COROS has re-worked the packaging here to be more 'normal' (no crazy case anymore).
COROS Trade-In Program: $200 Credit for trading in APEX 46mm, APEX Pro or VERTIX
$699
$200 offIf you trade in COROS APEX 46mm, APEX Pro or VERTIX (1), you'll get a $200 credit towards the purchase of any COROS watch on the store. So you could apply that to the COROS Vertix 2, or equally, you could apply that to the COROS Pace 2 and pay nothing (since it's $199). This is in addition to the normal COROS trade-in program for $100 for any watch from any vendor.
Withings Body WiFi Scale - 25% off
$59
$45I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the Withings WiFi Scale, they were the first in this category a gazillion years ago, and frankly, they're still basically the best in terms of partnerships and simplicity. It just works.
Withings Sleep Tracking Pad - 32% off$67Fun tidbit: I actually use this. Well, more specifically, I use the far older bedside clock version, but, the sensor is essentially the same. Simply that the new sensor doesn't require a bedside clock anymore. But, if you don't like wearing a wearable to bed, then this will still track all your nighttime stats.

Garmin Magnetless Sensors Cadence/Speed Bundle - 20% off$56This bundle includes both the dual ANT+/BLE Speed & Cadence sensors (V2), and is notable because the speed sensor not only transmits like any other, but also records your rides even when you don't have a bike computer/watch paired to it - making it perfect for commuter bikes.

$599
$449The Vertix 1 is no longer the most recent Vertix (Vertix 2 came out back in August), but it just got a big firmware update this week to give it mapping, plus plenty of other recent features. It's probably a tough pitch at $449 vs a Fenix 6 Pro at $499, but if mind-boggling battery life is your core requirement, it's hard to beat at this price point.
DJI Mini 2 Fly More Combo - 20% off ($100 off)$399This is a great little drone for quick shots that doesn't weigh much, or take up much space.

Tacx NEO 2 SE (Special Edition) - 16% off (US)
~€1,100
$1,170The Tacx NEO 2 SE is basically just a NEO 2 but with added native thru-axle compatibility. That's it. Note this is shipped by Chain Reaction, but comes with either a UK or EU power adapter. You can simply use a $1-$2 power adapter without any problems in the US. All Tacx trainers are dual-voltage (and in fact, I regularly use $1 adapters with trainers when companies send me out of country units to test).
Tacx NEO 2 SE (Special Edition) - 25% off (Europe)
~€1,100
£899.99/€1,061The Tacx NEO 2 SE is basically just a NEO 2 but with added native thru-axle compatibility. That's it. The UK price is 25% off, whereas the EU price will vary from about 15% off based on exact country.
Polar Grit X - 20% off
$429
$350Given my post this past week, seems like something might be coming up here shortly. Still, a good watch for the reduced price.
Apple Airpods Pro - $70 off!
$249
$179It's been a while since we've seen them this low (and the last time they were any lower was last Black Friday at $80 off - so not much difference).
Beats PowerBeats Studio Buds - 17% off
$149
$125I've been using these since earlier this summer, primarily on my indoor workouts, but also on some of my runs (for example, in testing out the COROX Vertix 2's music capabilities). I like them.
Apple Airpods (2nd Gen) - $30-$50 off
$159
$109I 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.
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.
Garmin Venu SQ - $50 off
$199/$249 with Music
$149
Tacx NEO 2T Smart Trainer - $100 off! (In Stock)
$1,399
$1,299⚡ Hey, it's on-sale. Which, basically hasn't happened in a long long time. Nor has it been in stock half the time. So getting it both on sale, and in-stock is impressive.
Garmin Vivoactive 4S - Up to $100 off$249
Garmin Lily Sport - $50 off
$199
$149
Garmin Vivoactive 4 - Up to $100 off
$299
$249Not the best price we've seen (that was back in June at $189), but still good.
Garmin Lily Classic - $50 off$199
Garmin Fenix 6 Series - $100 all models
$549-$1,149
$100 off⚡ This deal is back! I've gotta believe this is semi-targetted at undercutting COROS's latest Veritx 2 even further, but this brings down the base Fenix 6 model to $449, and the Fenix 6 Pro from $549 (including maps/music/wifi). This also includes the newer Fenix 6/6S Solar units from last summer (so basically, all solar variants too)
Garmin Forerunner 45/45S - $50 off
$199
$149If you're looking for a runners focused watch, this is a pretty good deal, about 25% off. The FR45 basically packs all the features of the previous generation FR235...just now in the FR45 series.
Garmin Venu GPS Smartwatch - $50 off
$299
$269Officially they say $80 off, but realistically it's about $50 off, maybe a touch less. Remember the Venu 2 came out this past spring.
Garmin Edge 130 Plus - 25% off!
$199
$149The 'Plus' variant is notable compared to the regular unit for having ClimbPro on it, plus a handful of other tweaks. $149 is a good deal for it.
Garmin Vivofit Jr - $40 off
$79
$29⚡I believe this is the lowest price we've ever seen this for. Either way, $29 is kinda crazy. Both my two older girls wear them, with my oldest always having it on, and the middle child mostly having it on. They both love them.
Garmin Forerunner 745 - $100 off
$499/499EUR
$399⚡ This is the best deal we've seen to date on this watch, arguably one of my favorite watches (if not my favorite watch).
Garmin Instinct Solar - $100 off
$399/$449
$299
Garmin Forerunner 935
$499
$269⚡ Sure, it's not the latest edition, but the FR935 is the staple of many triathletes and runners, and it still an incredibly solid watch. We saw this a bit lower last summer on Amazon Prime Day ($239) - but beyond that, this is pretty darn low. Also, I say $100-$200 off, because the 'base' price fluctuates a bit these days. Sometimes retail is $399 sometimes $499.

$1,199
$1,079A very strong deal for the KICKR V5/2020 - and really one of the first sales we've seen since launch a year ago (as most US retailers didn't discount Wahoo trainers over the last year).

Apple AirPods Pro - $60 off!
$249
$189

Garmin Forerunner 945 - $83 off
$599/599EUR
$515Not a bad deal, the price seems to fluctuate between $80-$85 off (official Garmin sale price currently).
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.
Garmin Venu GPS Smartwatch - $130 off!
$299
$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.
Fitbit Sense - 40% off
$329
$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).
Fitbit Inspire 2 - 40% off
$99
$59
Garmin Fenix 6S Pro⚡⚡ This is a strong deal for the Fenix 6S Pro, and the best we've ever seen. This includes the maps/music/WiFi.
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!
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.
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.
Garmin Forerunner 745 - $25 off
$499/499EUR
$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.
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.
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 - 36% off$159
Garmin Vivoactive 4/4S - $100-150 off
$299
$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.
KOM Cycling RPV2 Full Motion Rocker Plate - $300 off!$499⚡⚡⚡ Woah, this is a HUGE deal. This just came out about two months ago, building upon the success of the base model. This model moves in both forward/back sliding, as well as side to side tilting. That's an incredible price. UPDATE: DEAL BACK ON!
Jaybird Vista Wireless Headphones - 12% off!
$179
$149
Wahoo TICKR FIT Optical Strap (Dual ANT+/BLE) - 25% Off
$79
$59This is a good all-around optical HR sensor band (for the arm). It doesn't have memory on it, so it's purely transmission only, but that makes it like most HR straps anyway. It's been nearly 2 years since we've seen this on sale. Note: You have to add to cart to get the 25% off.
