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
Wahoo KICKR SNAP - 40% off
$499
$299This is lowest we've ever seen the KICKR SNAP priced. While the trend has moved towards wheel-off/direct drive trainers, this is still really solid deal if your budget it tight.
Tacx NEO 2T Smart Trainer - $280 off!
$1,399
$1,120⚡This is Tacx's top-end trainer, and while sales have been more frequent in 2022, this is still a solid deal for a solid trainer.
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 Fenix 7 Series (All Models/Styles) - $100 off!
$699+
From $599⚡This is the first time we've seen the Fenix 7 series on sale! This sale is $100 off all Fenix 7 series models, be it in the Fenix 7S/7/7X or any of the Sapphire/Solar variants.
Wahoo KICKR Bike - $500 off!
$3,499
$1,999⚡⚡⚡ This is an incredible deal, by far the lowest the KICKR Bike has ever been. Especially given the just-announced V2 bike is even more expensive now at $4,000. And frankly, aside from built-in WiFi, there's not much otherwise on the newer V2 bike. I plan to take advantage of this deal and finally buy one for myself, this is astounding.
Saris MP1 NFinity Motion Platform - $440 off!$759⚡This is by far the lowest normal sale price we've seen to date, save for their 'everything must go' clearance sale
Beats PowerBeats Studio Buds - $60 off
$149
$89⚡I've been using these since last summer (2021), 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.
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, than my Beats Studio Buds. I use these as well as my Beats Studio Buds (and have used the PowerBeats Pro ones longer). $100 off is a solid deal.
2021 Apple 10.2-inch iPad (Wi-Fi, 64GB) - $70 off!$269I 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 Wahoo SYSTM, Rouvy, and Peloton. But I pretty much test every smart trainer app on it. For all these cycling apps, the graphics capabilities is really pretty irrelevant, so having the absolute top-end/latest model won't make any difference. I prefer the budget options.
Apple Airpods Pro (2nd Gen) - $50 off!
$249
$199
Apple Airpods (2nd Gen) - $50 off!
$159
$79⚡These aren't the latest anymore, that's the newer 3rd gen units. But if budget is in mind, it's hard to beat these - seriously, at $79 it's the lowest price these have ever been.
Stages Bike SB20 - $700 off!
$2899
$1,799⚡ A very solid deal, making it the least expensive smart bike out there, despite being probably the best built one. (Note: While this sale is marked as 43% off, the reality is most of the time the price hovers around $2,300-2,500) - still, by far the lowest price we've ever seen).
Suunto 5 Peak - $60 off!
$299
$239This is Suunto's mid-range/budget multisport GPS unit, and at $239 it's a solid deal.
SanDisk 256GB Extreme PRO SD Cards - 18% off$51I 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. Note that usually I wait till these are about $40-45, so this is a good, but not yet fantastic deal.
Samsung T7 Portable SSD 1-2TB - 36% off$89I 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. Note: Different colors have different sale prices - I don't understand why.
Garmin Fenix 7X Solar Sapphire - $150 off!$849⚡⚡ While most of the Fenix 7 series is $100 off, this particular unit is $250 off, which is a massive savings!
Nespresso Vertuo Next Coffee & Espresso Kit - 30% off$118⚡ Let's be honest: This place runs on Nespresso (or, well, the knock-off pods we buy). But, the machine is Nespresso. Without it, reviews most definitely would not get done (and certainly not on time). This is a pretty sweet deal if you ask me!
DJI Mavic 3 - $150 off
$999
$2,049This is the second 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. Of course, you can also now get the DJI Mavic 3 Classic for a fair bit cheaper, minus the zoom lens. Albeit, I personally think the zoom lens is handy (if used correctly).
Garmin Varia RCT715 Camera Radar - $50 off$349This is the first time this product has been on sale, since announcement earlier this year.
Therabody Theragun Prime - 34% off$198My wife uses the Theragun Elite, which is just slightly more expensive than this model at $299 on sale right now. But hey, I hear good things about all of these.
Therabody Theragun Mini - 21% off$159My wife uses the Theragun Elite, which is a bit larger than this Mini model, and also includes more tips. But, as noted - people seem happy with all these models.
Garmin Edge 1030 Plus - $200 off
$599
$391⚡While the newer Edge 1040 came out this past summer, the Edge 1030 Plus is still an incredibly solid bike computer - arguably the 2nd best bike computer (behind the Edge 1040).
Polar Pacer - 15% off!$170I believe this is the first time we've seen the Polar Pace (base unit) on sale. Note - specifically the black/grey people.
Suunto 9 Peak - $170 off
$569
$399While Suunto recently released the newer Suunto 9 Peak Pro, this existing model still benefits from many of the software updates.
Saris H3 Bundle - $280 off!$719While not quite as low as some of the crazy clearance deals this past summer, this is still a good deal overall. Bundle includes pre-installed cassette, sweat guard, and ANT+ USB stick.
Elite Direto XR Smart Trainer- $400 off!
$1,000
$599⚡This is by far the lowest price we've seen on this trainer to date!
Elite Suito-T Smart Trainer - $340 off!
$799 (incl cassette)
$509This is by far the lowest price we've ever seen on the Elite Suito or Suito-T trainers. Note: The Suito-T is the same exact trainer as the Suito, except without the cassette pre-installed.
Tacx Flux 2 Smart Trainer - $180 off
$899
$719
GoPro Hero 11 Black - $100 off
$499
$399⚡ Amazon now has the Hero 11 Black for $100 off the retail price of $499. This does *NOT* require the GoPro subscription (previously called GoPro Plus). The Hero 11 has become my daily action cam (well, actually, I bought two of them).
Wahoo ELEMNT ROAM V1 - $200 off
$379
$199⚡This is the slightly older ROAM V1, which isn't quite as fancy as the new V2. Still, $200 off is a very solid deal, and it, recently got the new Wahoo Summit Segments feature, as well as other features - so it's still getting the majority (if not all) new firmware features.
Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen/2022) - 8% off
$279
$229⚡This is the first time we've seen the new Apple Watch SE (2nd gen) on sale!
Apple Watch Series 8 - $50 off!
$399/$499 (cellular)
$349⚡This is only the 2nd time we've seen the new Apple Watch SE (2nd gen) on sale!
Saris H3 (Hammer 3) Smart Trainer - $260 off!
$1,099
$639While not quite as low as some of the crazy clearance deals this past summer, this is still a good deal overall.
DJI Action 2 Dual-Screen Combo Edition - 31% off$359
Google Pixel Buds Pro - Noise Canceling Earbuds (All Colors) - $50 off!$149⚡This is the first time we've seen a sale on these, given they were just announced about 5 weeks ago.
Wahoo KICKR AXIS Feet - 40% off$47This is the lowest price we've ever seen on the Wahoo KICKR AXIS feet, which, if on a hard surface like concrete, will give your KICKR bike slightly more movement side to side. Note these come built-in to the KICKR 2020/2022, but you can install the AXIS feet on all Wahoo KICKR units (not CORE/SNAP).
Quarq DZero DUB XX1 PM Spider - 40% off$449⚡This is a major deal. SRAM has allowed retailers to put things on sale that were never allowed before, including power meters. This is the same exact model I use on my mountain bike. Works well.
Quarq DZero DUB (Road) PM Spider - 40% off$250⚡This is a major deal. SRAM has allowed retailers to put things on sale that were never allowed before, including power meters. This is the road/gravel variant of the MTB one I use (the XX1).
Polar Grit X - 17% off
$429
$357
Polar Vantage M2 - 20% off!
$299
$240
Garmin Instinct 2/2S Solar - $50 OffFrom $399
Garmin Instinct 2/2S Surf - $100 OffFrom $299
Apple Watch SE (2022) - $30 off!
$249/$299 (cellular)
$349This is the first and biggest sale we've seen on the new Apple Watch Series SE (2022) since launch.
Garmin Instinct 2 Series - $100 OffFrom $249⚡This is the first time we've seen the Garmin Instinct 2 series devices (all variants) on sale. The Instinct 2 base is from $249 (on Amazon), a very solid deal - especially with all the major software updates it's had over the last year.
Google Pixel Watch - 15% off!$299⚡This is the first time we've seen the (just released) Google Pixle Watch on sale!
Polar Ignite 2 - 22% off
$229
$179While the Polar Ignite 3 just came out, this is a reasonable deal on the older model.
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...
Tacx NEO Bike Smart V1 - $470 off!
$3,199
$2,719This is the V1 version, whereas the new Tacx NEO Bike Plus came out this past week with some very minor tweaks, however, that bike is $3,999 ($1,300 more than this!). Thus, this kinda looks like a steal.
Apple Watch Ultra - $50 off!$749⚡This is only the second time we've seen the Apple Watch Ultra on sale, and appears to be for all band styles as well! And it's not only in-stock, but even for same-day delivery in some areas.
Apple Watch Ultra - $50 off!$749⚡This is only the second time we've seen the Apple Watch Ultra on sale, and appears to be for all band styles as well! And it's not only in-stock, but even for same-day delivery in some areas.
Garmin HRM-PRO Plus - 22% off
$129
$101⚡This is the first time we've seen this on sale - and so it's actually pretty notable. I don't even think it's supposed to be on sale, but this is just Amazon doing Amazon. This is one of the two main HR straps i use these days (alongside the Polar H10). Either way, definitely take this and run!
Tacx Flux S Smart Trainer - $150 off!
$749USD
$599
Polar Pacer Pro - $80 off!
$299
$219⚡I believe this is the first time we've seen the Polar Pace Pro on sale. Note - specifically the red/white one is $219, the others are $230-$240.
Garmin Varia Radar (RTL515) - $50 off
$199
$149This is Garmin's standalone radar/taillight option, and $149 is pretty much the standard sale-price. This product is universally loved, and works with Garmin/Wahoo/Stages/Hammerhead/Bryton, and other bike computers.
Garmin inReach 2 Mini Satellite Communicator (2-way) - $75 off$327This is the first time we've seen this unit on sale, as it only came out earlier this year. It's my defacto satellite communicator when out of coverage area, and I've used it on a number of major treks this year out of cell range already.
Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Pro - $100 off!$399⚡This is the first time we've seen the new Galaxy Watch5 Pro on sale this low!
Garmin Fenix 7 Solar Sapphire - $250 off!$751⚡⚡ While most of the Fenix 7 series is $100 off, this particular unit is $250 off, which is a massive savings!
Apple TV 4K (32GB) for Zwift - $50 off$79⚡⚡ I use this for almost all my Zwifting. This is a fantastic deal, which runs Zwift, RGT, FulGaz, Rouvy, and more. While Apple just released their newest version (2022), virtually no cycling apps have taken advantage of it yet. And thus for now, the edition on sale for $79 seems like a steal.
Garmin GPSMAP 66i with inReach - $100 off$499
Little Tikes Pelican Explore & Fit Cycle - 38% off$59⚡So, the Three Peanuts (girls ages 3/5/6) have used this for over a year now, abd 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.
Polar H10 Chest Strap (Dual ANT+/Bluetooth Smart) - 40% off
$89
$54⚡So this has been fluctuating all day between $54 and $75. So it's a bit of luck of the draw. Either way- these are super low prices and great straps. This is one of my main chest straps I use as a reference device in testing. Works great!
DJI FPV Combo - $300 off!$899⚡This deal is on DJI's larger FPV drone, the original one. They've also got the smaller but less powerful one too - Avata, which isn't on sale. This is for the FPV combo deal, saving you $400. This includes the drone, FPV goggles, and controller.
Scosche RHYTHM+ 2.0 - 44% off!
$79
$49
Elite Tuo Smart Trainer - $233 off!
$580
$347⚡This is by far the lowest price we've seen on the wheel-on Tuo. While most trainers have shifted towards direct drive, this is a good option at the lower end.
Skydio 2+ Starter Kit - $200 off!
$999/$1349
$899In terms of autonomy and self-following from a drone, nothing beats Skydio today.
Elite Sterzo Smart - 40% off$74This is Elite's steering block, for steering in apps like Zwift.
Panasonic LUMIX GH6 Digital Camera - $500 off!$1,697I use two of the previous edition of this (the GH5) as the workhorses for all of the video production I do in the DCR Cave. One is my main camera (A-cam), and one is my overhead/b-roll camera (B-cam). I'm not quite ready to upgrade those cameras yet, but, the last time I did, I did it with a Black Friday sale. It was an expensive day.
Peloton Bike - $300 off!$1,145This deal is direct with Amazon, rather than Peloton. It doesn't include the weights like the bundle from Peloton directly, though, it does offer basically next-day free delivery.
Garmin Forerunner 245 Music - $100 off$249
Garmin Epix (Gen 2) - $100 off
$899/$999
$799⚡This is the first time we've seen the Epix on sale! This is Garmin's AMOLED equivalent to the Fenix 7 series, and people continue to be super happy with it since it announced earlier this year.
Garmin Vivofit Jr. 2 - Incl Disney/Avengers/Star Wars variants - 25% off
$79
$60These are Garmin's kids activity trackers, which all of our kids use (mostly our 5yo, the 6yo uses the Vivofit Jr. 3)

$299/$349
$220
Garmin Edge 1040 Solar - $50 off$695This is the first time we've seen the Edge 1040 Solar on sale, so while $50 isn't a huge amount off this device, it is notable. This is Garmin's top-end and just released this past summer, cycling GPS bike computer.
Garmin Epix Sapphire Black Titanium (Gen 2) - $130 Off$869⚡This is the first time we've seen the Epix on sale! This is Garmin's AMOLED equivalent to the Fenix 7 series, and people continue to be super happy with it since it announced earlier this year. This Sapphire edition includes multiband GPS, for higher levels of accuracy.
FORM Swim Goggles (with heads-up display) - 20% off$182This includes both the goggle, and a 1-year membership to their training/coaching platform.
Garmin Venu 2S - $100 off$299
Fitbit Inspire 3 - 33% off!$69⚡⚡This is a really good deal. First, it's only like 2 months old. Second, it's actually a legit good product. Arguably the best product Fitbit has made in years, in terms of functionality/accuracy/etc... and 3rd, it's priced super well if you want all the features of a Fitbit, without the cost. Note - You don't need a subscription, I did my entire review without one, so you can see what that looks like.
Wahoo KICKR Core Smart Trainer - $200 off!
$899
$699⚡This is the lowest price we've actually ever seen on the KICKR CORE. While the new Zwift Hub came out that's relatively similar and cheaper, the KICKR CORE is a better option if you want to combine it with the Wahoo CLIMB, or, if you need multichannel Bluetooth.
Google Nest Cam Indoors - 30% off$69We 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.
Apple TV Elago R1 (2021 Edition) Remote Case- 64% offfrom $6.39I use Apple TV for Zwift the vast majority of the time, but also just for watching YouTube/Netflix/etc on the trainer. The Apple TV remote sucks though. This $10 case fixes that, it's a silicone strap that makes it easy to grab, but also has a strap to easily place on the edge of your handlebars. Boom! Note: This one is for Apple TV 4K 2021 Edition!
Garmin Vivoactive 4 - $150 off
$299
From $176
Garmin Venu 2 Plus - $100 off!
$449
$349This is the first sale we've seen on the Venu 2 Plus since it launched earlier this year.
Garmin Enduro 2 - $200 off!
$1,099
$901⚡⚡This is an incredible deal, since this watch just came out three months ago, and is basically the highest end Fenix 7X variant, but with even longer battery life. This is an Amazon-specific sale, not a Garmin one, so I don't expect this to last.
Garmin Forerunner 735XT - $220 off
$349
$129.99
Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Solar - 49% off$382
Garmin Fenix 6X Pro Solar - 40% off$538
Garmin Vivoactive 4S - $150 offFrom 176
Peloton Heart Rate Band - 30% off
$89
$63Previously, I'd have said the Peloton Heart Rate Band wasn't really worth it at $90 compared to most other options. But at $67 it's basically the same as others, except has the integration with Peloton's Heart Rate Zone (if you have the Peloton app/gear).
Garmin Quatix 7 Multisport Marine Smartwatch - all models- $100 offFrom $596
Garmin Venu SQ & Venu SQ Music - 40% off

From $119
Apple Watch Ultra - 8% off!$739⚡This is the very first sale we've seen on the Apple Watch Ultra, and appears to be for all band styles as well! And it's not only in-stock, but even for same-day delivery in some areas.
Garmin Epix Sapphire White Titanium (Gen 2) - $100 Off$899⚡This is the first time we've seen the Epix on sale!

RunScribe Red Gait Lab Footpods - 20% offWhile 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.
Apple Watch Ultra - 8% off!$739⚡This is the very first sale we've seen on the Apple Watch Ultra, and appears to be for all band styles as well! And it's not only in-stock, but even for same-day delivery in some areas.
Garmin Fenix 6S Pro - 43% off$339
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.
Frontier X2 Smart Heart Monitor - 26% off$405Note: I haven't reviewed this yet. It's on my eventual list.
Garmin HRM-DUAL (ANT+/Bluetooth Smart Strap) - 36% off!
$69
$45⚡ 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.
Wahoo KICKR V5/2020 - $400 off!
$1,199
$799⚡This is by far the lowest price any Wahoo KICKR has ever been (excluding CORE/SNAP obviously). If you don't care about built-in WiFi, there's little reason to spend $1,299 for the newer V6 unit that came out a few months ago.
DJI Mini 2 Fly More Combo - 20% off ($90 off)$509This 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. Note: Ths is a one-day-only sale.
SAMSUNG Galaxy Buds 2 Pro Earbuds - $40 off!$199
Garmin Venu GPS Smartwatch - $100 off
$299
$199Officially this is 50% off, but realistically this is like $50-$100 off on a good day. It's now a few revisions behind, but it's still a solid little watch.
Nest Cam Outdoors - $60 off$119We use one of these and so far after I think just about four 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).
Saris H4 (Hammer 4) Smart Trainer - $200 off!
$999
$799This is their newest model that came out this past fall, though, I still don't have a unit to test, due to them having some issues with it. Thus, a bit of buyer beware.
Indoor Cycling Desk - 14% off$102This is one of my favorite trainer desks, easily beating the Wahoo KICKR Desk, because it's got wheel locks and water bottle holders. Simple things.
GoPro Hero 11 Black - $100 off$449GoPro HERO11 Black Accessory Bundle - Includes Extra Enduro Battery (2 Total), The Handler (Floating Hand Grip), Headstrap + Quick Clip, and Carrying Case.
Peak Designs Universal Bar Mount - 10% off$44⚡We use this as a floater bike mount for the Peak Designs case. Sometimes i use it on my road bike, mountain bike, and just commuter bikes.
GoPro HERO11 Black Creator Edition - $150 off$549Includes HERO11 Black, Volta (Battery Grip, Tripod, Remote), Media Mod, Light Mod, Enduro Battery, and Carrying Case.
Peak Designs Phone Case - 30% off$27⚡This is the phone case both my wife and I use for our phones, and it's got a bike-mount compatible system. I used to use the Quadlock cases, and those are fine, but I just like how slim these ones are, as well as the fact there's no rotation when unlock it from the handlebars. Plus, I like the cloth-look to it.
Peak Designs Phone Case Tripod - 10% off$71.95
Philips Hue Smart Lighting - 20% offVariesAlmost all Hue stuff is 20% off, and what's not seems to have the 15% coupon option offered. So this is a good deal. We use a surprising amount of Philips Hue lights - both at home and at the DCR Cave. Albeit, I'd say it's surgically 'strategic' in how we use them. At home, the entire outside garden is Hue, mainly because it's frankly the easiest way to control a bunch of lights illuminating specific areas/plants from inside our house. Inside the house, we mainly use them in a few rooms that are street-facing, to fake being away. The kids room also have a single color light too, for fun every once in a while. Meanwhile, at the DCR Cave, I use them for set lighting. Both a static set (the Gondola for the QC Corner Series), but also behind trainers for certain scenes, as well as behind various product shots. Again, not everything is Hue, it's highly strategic, and color-focused. White-only stuff is usually the cheaper Ikea. In any case, with this sale I picked up the Hue Go, and some 5-meters of lightstrip for a fun idea.
Withings Sleep Tracking Pad - 31% off$89Fun 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.
Skydio 2+ Battery - Buy one/Get One Free (+$25 discount)$90This is a pretty impressive deal. This is a $25 discount to $90, then it's buy one, get one free. So $45. Drone batteries are never $45. This is solid!
Lasko High Velocity Pro-Performance Fan (U15617) - 19% off$77This is one of the most popular indoor trainer fans out there, which rivals the Wahoo Headwind fan but cost a fraction of the price. Of course, it lacks ANT+/Bluetooth integration, but realistically if you really want that you can add a smart outlet for $10 to toggle it on/off from your phone if need be. I've actually got this fan in the DCR Cave recently on advice of many people.
Peloton Bike Bundle - $600 off$1,145This is the base Peloton Bike, plus some $600 in accessories. Even if you exclude the accessories, it's still about $300 cheaper than the bike by itself. The accessories include the shoes, water bottle, bike mat, workout mat, and two weights. I use the base Peloton Bike quite a bit, in fact, just an hour ago before adding this to the list.
2021 Apple MacBook Pro (14", M1 Pro) - 20% offFrom $1,599This is the exact model I have and use for almost all my video editing (2021 MacBook Pro with 1TB space,). I actually initially bought a 16" M1 Max variant, and then quickly realized it was totally overkill both in size and spec, so I went back and got the 14" M1 Pro and have been super happy with it - even while editing complex drone/action cam videos with 3-4 concurrently 4K streams in a multicam configuration, it has zero issues.
SanDisk Extreme Pro 256GB MicroSD Card - 20% off!$40⚡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.
Withings ScanWatch - Hybrid Smartwatch & Activity Tracker - 20% off$239
DJI Mavic Mini Fly More Combo Kit - 40% off$299This is a very solid deal, albeit for an older product. Note the price seems to be fluctuating a bit between $299 an $399 - so just keep an eye out for it.
Garmin Fenix 6S Pro Solar - 43% off$339⚡This is really an incredible deal. You've got a full mapping capable and everything-else unit for $339. When you compare that to their competitors, even their newest products - some of which cost $500-$600, it's not even close. Sure, this is last year's model, but man, it's insane.
Garmin Fenix 6S Sapphire - 53% off$331
4iiii Precision Ride-Ready Power Meters - 15-25% off$242This includes the Shimano DuraAce, Ultegra, and 105 units, at between 15-25% off depending on which exact model you select.
Fitbit Versa 4 - 35% off$149
Ooni Fyra 12 Wood Fired Outdoor Portable Pizza Oven - $70 off!$279⚡ I know, I know, I still owe everyone a review. Nonetheless, more than 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...probably.
Jackery Portable Power Station - $50 off$299This 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!
Fitbit Versa 2 - 34% off$99
Fitbit Ace 3 Activity - 38% off$49
Beats Fit Pro - 20% off$159While I haven't used this myself, they are super popular, and realistically, it's the fitness-focused upgrade variant of my Beats Studio Buds I use.
CORE Body Temp Sensor - 20% off$214The 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.
Cycliq Fly6 & Fly12 Sport (Bundle) - 25% off$530This is a bundle with both the Fly6 (2021 edition), and the Fly12 Sport (2022 edition), along with some cases/SD cards/etc... There is also single-unit bundles too.
Peloton Row - Bundle with $300 in accessories free$3,320While the Peloton Row just started shipping last week, Peloton has already put a bundle on for sale, inclusive of about $300 in accessories. Well, technically speaking you have to pay $20 extra for those accessories, but hey...close enough.

$569⚡ This is a strong deal from Favero, who is offering their Favero Assioma Duo pedals for $200 off.
Garmin Bounce LTE Kids Tracker - $10 off plus free book$139This just came out, like, last week. So, $10 off isn't much, but hey, it does come with a free kids sports-focused book. While my review isn't quite out yet, we've been using the Garmin Bounce trackers for a few weeks now with our daughters, and overall it does the job super well. Also, we've been reading the book at night to our girls - they love it.
Stryd V2 Running Pod - $41 off$228Stryd pretty much only puts their items on once a year at Black Friday, so if you're in the market for one, now's the time. This is their latest gen unit that just announced this past fall.

Ooni Fyra 12 Wood Fired Outdoor Portable Pizza Oven - 70% off!$90⚡⚡⚡ Holy crap - $90??!?! - I know, I know, I still owe everyone a review. Nonetheess, more than 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....maybe...perhaps.

GoPro Hero 11 Black - $50 off
$499
$449Amazon now has the Hero 11 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 11 has become my daily action cam (well, actually, I bought two of them).

Garmin Vivoactive 4 - $120 off
$299
$189⚡ 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
Samsung T7 Portable SSD 1-2TB - 21% off$94I 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.

Garmin Venu SQ - 40% off
$199/$249 with Music
$149This is a pretty solid price on this watch, almost matching last year's Black Friday sale at $129. The Venu SQ 2 came out a few weeks back, hence the lower price here.

Peloton Heart Rate Band - 25% off
$89
$67Previously, I'd have said the Peloton Heart Rate Band wasn't really worth it at $90 compared to most other options. But at $67 it's basically the same as others, except has the integration with Peloton's Heart Rate Zone (if you have the Peloton app/gear).
Polar H10 Chest Strap (Dual ANT+/Bluetooth Smart) - 25% off
$89
$75This is a great dual ANT+/Bluetooth Smart (with two Bluetooth Smart connections) chest strap that you'll often find me using as a reference strap in heart rate sensor testing. We only tend to see deals on it around Black Friday, always topping out around 20%. Note, the medium- size is the one on sale.

SanDisk 256GB Extreme PRO SD Cards - 34% off$42I 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.
Wahoo BOLT V1 - 25% off
$229
$169Despite being a 5 year old bike computer, it's a solid little choice that's still actually getting (some) firmware updates. This price seems about right to me.
Wahoo RIVAL GPS Watch - 25% off
$379
$247
Apple Airpods Pro (2nd Gen) - 10% off
$249
$223
Jackery Portable Power Station - $130 off$209This 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!
Garmin Vivofit Jr. 2 - Incl Disney/Avengers/Star Wars variants - 15% off

Polar Grit X Pro - 32% off
$499/$599
$338This is the lowest we've seen the Polar Grit X Pro to date, which is essentially Polar's top-end GPS watch.
Peloton Bike - $215 off!$1,230I believe this is the lowest price we've ever seen on the original/base Peloton Bike model. Or if not the exact lowest, then certainly very close. This is still a solid bike, and actually one that I use at home (I have the newer Peloton Bike+ at the office). Both my wife and I use these bikes interchangeably, and while the Bike+ has a bigger screen and better accuracy, there's very little difference in the core Peloton experience.
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 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.
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.
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.
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 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 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
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.
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
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 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.
Apple Watch Series 7 (41mm) - $120 off

$279⚡⚡ This is now the lowest price we've seen on the unit, for Amazon Prime Day, down to $279
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.
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.
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
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).
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.
Garmin Venu SQ - $30 off!
$199/$249 with Music
$159
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 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.
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).
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.
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.
Fitbit Charge 5 - $30 off
$149
$104This is the lowest price we've seen on the Fitbit Charge 5 to date (by far).
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!
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).
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.
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!
Apple Airpods (3rd Gen) - $40 off!$140
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 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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
Apple Airpods Pro - $80 off
$249
$169
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.
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.
Fitbit Inspire 2 - 33% off
$99
$66
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.
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 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
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.
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.
Fitbit Luxe - 30% off$99
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.
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.
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 Venu 2/2S - $50 off
$399
$349Not too bad a deal. Nothing crazy, and not on the Venu 2 Plus with calling features.
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 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 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 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 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 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.
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 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).

$649/$999

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)

$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 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.
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.
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.

$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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus Wireless Earbuds - 33% off$99
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).
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
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 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).
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
Garmin Vivoactive 4S - $80 off$219
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.
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.
Elite Suito-T Smart Trainer - 10% off!
$799 (incl cassette)
$722Note: The Suito-T is the same exact trainer as the Suito, except without the cassette pre-installed.
Elite Direto XR Smart Trainer- $140 off! (In Stock)
$1,000
$849
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.
Elite Tuo Smart Trainer - 7% off
$580
$492
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 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.
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.
Garmin Vivoactive 4 - $70 off
$299
$229
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!).
Garmin Venu SQ - $30 off!
$199/$249 with Music
$169
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.
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.
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!
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).
NormaTec Pulse 2.0 Leg Recovery System - $100 off!$799
