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:

ProductSale PriceAmazonOther siteSale Notes
Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case - $50 Off!$149⚡ I use AirPods primarily when I'm travelling just to listen in airports, planes, etc... I don't tend to use these for workouts due to them falling out. Personally, I just use the basic model.
Apple Airpods (2nd Gen) - $30 off
$159
$119I use AirPods primarily when I'm travelling just to listen in airports, planes, etc... I don't tend to use these for workouts due to them falling out.
Apple Airpods Pro - $30 off!
$249
$219
Garmin Edge 130 Plus - 25% off!
$199
$149This is the first time we've seen the Edge 130 Plus on sale. The 'Plus' variant is notable compared to the regular unit for having ClimbPro on it, plus a handful of other tweaks. $149 is a good deal for it.
Garmin Edge 130 Plus Bundle - 20% off!$199This is the first time we've seen the Edge 130 Plus on sale. The 'Plus' variant is notable compared to the regular unit for having ClimbPro on it, plus a handful of other tweaks. This bundle includes a heart rate chest strap as well.
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.
Garmin Instinct - $100 off
$299
$189Sure, the new Solar variants came out last summer with a few new features, but at their core the Instincts are mostly the same. $189 is still a strong price for this watch.
Garmin RVR315 Varia Radar - Save 20%$120I believe this is the first sale of the Garmin Varia RVR315 cycling radar. This unit 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 Vivoactive 4/4S - $100 off
$299
$249This is Garmin's current offering to compete with the Apple Watch series (alongside the Garmin Venu), and this is a good price, though, it does go lower from time to time (not since Black Friday 2020).
GoPro Hero 9 Black - $50 off$399⚡ This 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.
GoPro Max - $50 off
$499
$449

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
Garmin Forerunner 45/45S - $40 off
$199
$160If you're looking for a runners focused watch, this is a pretty good deal, about 20% off. The FR45 basically packs all the features of the previous generation FR235...just now in the FR45 series.
Apple Watch Series 6 - 40mm RED - $80 off
$399/$499 (cellular)
$319This is a very solid deal, and the lowest we've seen an Apple Watch Series 6 to date I believe. Note, it'll show $50 off until you add it to the cart, then it shows $80 off (this is also noted on the main product page). Act quick!
Garmin Venu GPS Smartwatch - $50 off
$299
$299This has somewhat become the new baseline for Venu. Sometimes it's $349, but a lot of the time it's $299. Either way, it's a great watch for $299.
Garmin Forerunner 245 - $37 off
$299/$349
$313Both the Forerunner 245 is on sale for $37 off. While not a huge sale, if you were in the market, it's definitely something.
Elite Sterzo Smart - 20% off!$100REI 20% sale, REI members use code MEMBER21
Saris MP1 NFinity Motion Platform - $240 off! (In stock)$959REI 20% sale, REI members use code MEMBER21
Saris TD1 Trainer Desk - $66 off (In Stock)$263REI 20% sale, REI members use code MEMBER21 - Also, dear god, do not buy this. My final/full review will be coming soon, but for those that saw my Instagram story rants (or the DCR Supporter Quarantine Corner Episode 19, you'll note it's been a long time since I've been this frustrated with a product). But hey, if you still want to buy it...using the link here would be spiffy.
Elite Sterzo *NOT SMART VERSION - 20% off$55REI 20% sale, REI members use code MEMBER21 - Note again, this is the version that does NOT have any smarts in it, so effectively just a plate to move your front wheel.
Garmin Instinct Solar - $50 off
$399/$449
$349This is a moderate deal on the Instinct solar family, though not the first or best time to date. Last November & December the units were $100 off. Still, as with the Fenix 6 Solar sales - $50 is $50 - so if you were in the market for one anyway...
Garmin Fenix 6 Series - $50 all models
$599-$1,149
$50 off
Garmin Fenix 6X Pro Solar - $50 off$899This appears to be a semi-random out of cycle spring sale for Garmin (usually their Fenix sales are a bit closer to May, and usually for around $100-$150 off). Still, we haven't actually seen the newer solar models on sale yet - so if you're in the market, $50 is still $50.
Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Solar - $50 off$749This appears to be a semi-random out of cycle spring sale for Garmin (usually their Fenix sales are a bit closer to May, and usually for around $100-$150 off). Still, we haven't actually seen the newer solar models on sale yet - so if you're in the market, $50 is still $50.
Garmin Fenix 6S Pro Solar - $50 off$749This appears to be a semi-random out of cycle spring sale for Garmin (usually their Fenix sales are a bit closer to May, and usually for around $100-$150 off). Still, we haven't actually seen the newer solar models on sale yet - so if you're in the market, $50 is still $50.
Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music - $50 off
$169
$149⚡⚡ Very solid deal, and remember, this includes Spotify support too!
Samsung Galaxy Buds True Wireless Earbuds - 39% off$79This are obviously super popular, and having them be 31% off ought to make them even more popular. Wireless Charging Case included.
Amazon Echo Dot - 35% off!$38We've got a couple of Echo's around the DCR Cave, and mostly just use it to play music, but also more recently for some integrations. I don't have a specific need to pickup another one this year, but it's kinda incredible what kind of technology they can pack into that price.
Apple Watch Series 6 - (44mm)- $50 Off
$399/$499 (cellular)
$379This is now the best deal we've seen on the Apple Watch Series 6.
GoPro Hero 8 Black Camera - $100 off$249This s a great price for the camera, though, also keep in mind for $50 more you get the extra battery, shorty stick, SD card, head mount.
GoPro Hero 8 Black Camera Bundle - $70 off!$279-$299⚡ The Hero 8 is still a great camera, so if you don't need the extra bits of the newer Hero 9, this saves you a $100 in comparison. Plus, this includes an extra battery, shorty stick/tripod, head mount, and 32GB MicroSD Card. Note: Price seems to fluctuate a bit between $279 and $299.
Garmin inReach Mini Satellite Communicator (2-way) - $100 off$249⚡ This is a great deal on this unit which can send messages back and forth when there's no cellular service. It also connects to the Garmin Edge devices plus the Forerunner & Fenix devices for sending urgent messages sans-cell signals
Garmin Foreruuner 35 - $50 off
$169
$92If you're looking for a solid budget GPS running watch, it's hard to go wrong here. Sure, it's a few years old now, but it'll track your race just fine and upload to Garmin Connect and all the other Strava-like sites as well.
Apple Watch Series 6 - (40mm)- $50 Off
$399/$499 (cellular)
$349This is now the best deal we've seen on the Apple Watch Series 6.
Apple Airpods (2nd Gen) - $50 off
$159
$99⚡⚡ This is the lowest price AirPods have ever been - this is solid! I use AirPods primarily when I'm travelling just to listen in airports, planes, etc... I don't tend to use these for workouts due to them falling out. Also, with the wireless charging case for $50 off. Personally, I just use the basic model.
Garmin Vivoactive 3
$129
$119⚡ Obviously this is the previous edition, but dang, it's still a good price for a great little GPS watch. This has mostly been on sale at this price range for a while now, however, I've included it in the list merely because if you're looking for a deal then this is probably one of the best deals out there.
Panasonic LUMIX GH5 4K Digital Camera - $700 off!This is my main shooting cameras for video (they make great stills too, but I mainly got this for video), and I've bought two of them. $700 off is an awesome deal. In my case I got the kit. And in case it's even more of an endorsement, both GPLAMA & DesFit also use this camera too!
DJI OSMO Action (Action Cam) - Normally $329
$349
$199⚡ This is a very solid price for the DJI OSMO Action, and it's a very strong first contender from DJI to compete with the Hero 7 Black (realistically, except for the dual-screen, it simply doesn't compete with the Hero 8 or Hero 9). I really like a lot of elements on the OSMO Action, but especially the dual-screen. Check out my full review for comparative thoughts. While I would have said that maybe we'd see a new OSMO Action sometime this past spring (an annual refresh cycling), I'm pretty sure COVID19 has killed any chance of that happening for a while.
Garmin Edge 530 Cycling GPS - $25 off
$299
$274There hasn't been any sales on the Edge 530...since...well...anytime this year (save a few random retailers for a few hours). This, would be one of those random retailer details. Published Dec 26th, 2020 - probably won't last till tomorrow.
Fitbit Inspire 2 - 30% off
$99
$69
Suunto 9 - 46% off!
$599 (non-baro is $499)
$346This is about a good a deal as we've ever seen in the US for the Suunto 9.
Fitbit Sense - $50 off!
$329
$279This is the first time we've seen the brand new Fitbit Sense on sale. Not a bad deal at all!
Fitbit Versa 2 - $50 off$129⚡ If you don't need the new features of the Versa 3 (of which, there are almost none except for built-in GPS), then this is a great option.
Suunto 7 Wear OS Watch - 30% off
$499
$349⚡ This is now the lowest price this watch has ever been at - and definitely a price to pick it up if you were in the market for it.
Suunto 5 GPS Multisport Watch - 35% off
$329
$199⚡ A very strong deal for this complete multisport watch that I really like. Well nailed on price here.
Garmin Venu GPS Smartwatch - $100 off!
$299
$249This is about the lowest we've seen yet for the Garmin Venu GPS, which includes an AMOLED display as well as music (even Spotify offline). Solid deal.
Garmin Instinct - $80 off
$299
$149⚡ Sure, the new Solar variants came out this summer with a few new features, but at their core the Instincts are mostly the same. Still, $149 is the lowest price the Instinct has ever been at.
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 - 28% off$179
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 - $60 off$339This is a pretty new watch, so $60 off is a solid discount!
SanDisk 1TB Extreme PRO Portable External SSD - 39% off$169This is the high speed drive I use to store the footage I'm actively video editing, so that I can edit it on both my iMac at the office, and then my MacBook when travelling or at home.
Garmin Instinct Solar - $100 off
$399/$449
$299This is the first time we've seen a deal on the Garmin Instinct Solar, and the best deal I expect we'll see for a while.
Fitbit ACE 2 Activity Tracker for Kids - $20 Off$49
Google Nest Mesh WiFi Router - 18% off$139These 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.
Garmin Forerunner 245 Music - $50 off$299Both the Forerunner 245 Music is sale for $50 off. While not a huge sale, it's actually the lowest we've seen either product priced to date. The FR245 Music supports Spotify, Amazon Music, and other streaming platforms.
Garmin Forerunner 945 Bundle (with HRM-TRI & HRM-SWIM) - $80 off$669This is a good deal, in fact, the best deal on the FR945 we've seen in 2020. I don't anticipate this lasting long
Garmin Vivofit Jr. 3 - 25% off$59Sale includes all Vivofit Jr 3 variants.

$199This is only the 2nd time we've seen the Garmin Swim 2 on sale. And as part of my in-depth review I found it easily the most accurate openwater swim watch GPS-wise I've ever tested. Which, is good, since most pools seem to be closed these days. :-/
Garmin Fenix 6 Series - $150 all models
$599-$1,149
$150 off⚡⚡ This deal is back! This is a great deal that showed up last spring, and it also includes the newly launched Fenix 6/6S Solar units from this past summer
Garmin Tactix Charlie - $150 off$599The Tactix Charlie is essentially a Fenix geared towards military folks (Amazon Prime Days)
Insta360 One R Action Cam - 15% off$466The 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.
Nest Cam Indoors - 23% off$99We have more Nest cam's than I can count. No really, we have half a dozen at the DCR Cave alone, plus more at home. We love them. Nest Cam's really only go on sale about once per year.
Garmin Forerunner 45/45S - $50 off
$199
$149If you're looking for a runners focused watch, there's no better deal on the market than this. Period. The FR45 basically packs all the features of the previous generation FR235...just now in the FR45 series. Seriously, this is a solid deal.
Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm)
$169-$179
$169This is the lowest price we've ever seen for the Apple Watch Series 3. While the Series 6 is the new one, the Series 3 has almost all the same features (and still gets all the updates). It's dipped a few times to $179, but rarely $169.
Garmin Speed Sensor V2 - 18% off!$32This is Garmin's latest ANT+/Bluetooth Smart speed sensor, but notably, it's also one that can record your rides without being connected to a bike computer, making it perfect for tracking mileage on a commuter bike. I'm super tempted to pickup a few of these and outfit all our commuter/cargo bikes for 2021 to see what the mileage/breakdown by trip/etc looks like at the end of the year. Yes, I'm a geek.
Fitbit Charge 4 - 33% off!
$149
$99⚡ This just came out earlier this year, so this is a pretty solid deal for sure!
Garmin Forerunner 245 - $50 off
$299/$349
$249Both the Forerunner 245 is on sale for $50 off. While not a huge sale, it's actually the lowest we've seen either product priced to date.
Polar Ignite GPS - 12% off!
$229
$201It's a good watch, and the 12% brings it down to roughly where it should be priced at anyway. :)
Garmin Edge 1030 - $150 off!
$499
$399-$469⚡ This is a pretty solid deal for this unit, especially since it's getting a number of the recently announced 1030 Plus features later this year. Note: This price keeps floating up/down hourly.
Manfrotto Compact Tripod (MKCOMPACTACN) - 34% off
$69
$51This is my main tripod I use day in and day out, and during all my travelling. It's probably got 500,000-800,000 miles of travel on it, and it still looks like new - despite the fact that I treat it like crap. It's out in the salt spray waves often, in the mud and rain, etc... It just rocks. I just bought another one to have one permanently setup in the studio (+ one for traveling).
Garmin Forerunner 945 - 5% off
$599/599EUR
$568Hey...some discount is better than no discount!
Garmin FR935 - $100-$200 off
$499
$289⚡ Sure, it's not the latest edition, but the FR935 is the staple of many triathletes and runners, and it still an incredible solid watch. We saw this a bit lower last month on Amazon Prime Day ($239). Also, I say $100-$200 off, because the 'base' price fluctuates a bit these days. Sometimes retail is $399 sometimes $499.
Garmin HRM-PRO - $10 off!
$129
$119
Jaybird Vista Wireless Headphones - 12% off!
$179
$159
SanDisk 256GB MicroSD Card - 38% off!$29I use this card in both 128GB and 256GB variety, and it's perfect for all my drones and action cams, easily recording 4K/60 and 5K/30, as well as 5.7K without trouble. I often pickup these cards when on sale like this, so I have them for later in the year when not on sale.
Garmin Vivoactive 4/4S - $65 off
$299
$235This is Garmin's current offering to compete with the Apple Watch series (alongside the Garmin Venu), and this is a good price, though, not as low as we saw for Amazon Prime Day at $199.
Garmin Magnetless Sensors Cadence/Speed Bundle - 24% off$53This 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. Both sensors are fully compatible with basically every app/watch/bike computer out there.
Garmin Forerunner 735XT - $70 off
$349
$219This is still a really good deal for a full featured triathlon watch. Sure, it got down to $169 for Amazon Prime Day, but this is still a solid price.
Garmin Forerunner 645 Music
$399/$449 (with music)
$257This isn't a bad price per se, but for $20 more you'll get so much more watch out of the FR935 deal. However, that doesn't include music, whereas this FR645 Music Deal Does. Also, the 51% off is per list, but realistically we're talking about $70 off normal prices.
Apple Watch SE - $30 off
$279
$249
Beats PowerBeats Pro Wireless Sport Headphones - $90 off
$249
$169⚡ These are my daily driver headphones that I use for all my trainer rides, and anything else sport related. While they're not perfect (namely the charging case), it's what I keep going back to every day because of the seamless Apple ecosystem integration (iPad/Apple TV/iOS/Mac).
Amazon Echo Dot - 53% off$18I use these around the studio and home - and for $18, it's kinda incredible what kind of technology they can pack into that price.
Beats PowerBeats Pro Wireless Sport Headphones - $50 off
$249
$199⚡ These are my daily driver headphones that I use for all my trainer rides, and anything else sport related. While they're not perfect (namely the charging case), it's what I keep going back to every day because of the seamless Apple ecosystem integration (iPad/Apple TV/iOS/Mac).
Polar OH1 Plus Optical Sensor - 20% off!
$79
$63⚡ I love this little sensor, and you'll see it in almost every one of my watch/HR sensor reviews as a comparison/reference strap. It's just so darn accurate and so easy to use. Every optical HR sensor (and app with it) should aspire to be what this thing is.
Withings/Nokia Health Body Cardio WiFI Scale - 20% off
$149
$119This is the highest end scale that Withings makes, which includes additional metrics - specifically heart rate. Though, honestly, I'm not sure why you need to know your heart rate standing on your scale.
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.
Withings Body WiFi Scale - 20% off
$59
$47I'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.
Apple iPad - Latest Model 8th Gen (32GB) - 10% off$299I use my iPad primarily for TrainerRoad as well as Zwift when not with a larger display. I also occasionally use it for other apps, namely The SufferFest - but I pretty much test every smart trainer app on it. This is the latest iPad that was just announced barely two weeks ago, so not too bad to see it on sale already (US AMAZON DEAL ONLY).
Garmin Edge 830 Cycling GPS - 8% off!
$399
$369⚡It's a rare day to see the Garmin Edge 830 on sale - so rare to date in fact that I don't have any record of it being on sale previously. This appears to be an Amazon-specific sale, so I don't expect it to last long.
Nurvv Running Insoles - 30% off
$299
$199This is a pretty new product, just launched this past fall that sits inside your shoe and even has GPS built into the pod sidewalls. I'm still in the midst of testing it currently, and expect a review sometime in December.
Jaybird Vista Wireless Headphones - 44% off!
$179
$99⚡ I like these headphones quite a bit, and tested them a while back. A very solid deal for sure here!
Polar H10 Chest Strap (Dual ANT+/Bluetooth Smart) - 19% off
$89
$72This 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%.
Garmin Forerunner 235 Running Watch
$249
$119⚡Look, this isn't the latest generation watch (the FR245 is, released last year). But, in terms of a damn-solid running watch, the FR235 absolutely fits the bill. You'll find it on many runners wrists in running races (ya know, once those happen again).
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!
Stages Dash L10 - $75$75⚡ This is a fantastic price on this unit. This is a full featured power-meter supporting cycling GPS unit, packed with structured-workout features. Seriously, nothing comes close at this price.
Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm) - HOLY COW DISCOUNT!
$169-$179
$119⚡⚡⚡ Holy cow, this is an incredible deal for the Apple Watch Series 3, $119USD - it's never been anywhere near this low. This is the lowest price we've ever seen for the Apple Watch Series 3. While the Series 6 is the new one, the Series 3 has almost all the same features (and still gets all the updates). It's dipped a few times to $169.
Stages Dash L50 - $90 off!
$299
$209The Stages Dash M50 & L50 are both 30% off, in addition, all Stages Dash accessories are 30% off.
Garmin Fenix 5X - 50% off
$599
$299⚡ Down to $299 is a substantial deal for the Fenix 5X (non-Plus), so don't expect much in the way of major firmware updates. But still, at that price it's solid - incredible really. Note: The Fenix 5X in this series actually does include mapping, whereas the other Fenix 5 (non-Plus) units don't have it.
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.
Garmin Forerunner 735XT
$349
$169⚡ If one were to have a 'Yo mama' joke in here somewhere, the FR735XT has been around longer than Yo Mama, however, at $169...that's compelling if you just simply want a basic triathlon watch that still supports more sports features than most of its competitors.
Apple Airpods Pro - $80 off!
$249
$169⚡⚡ This is the lowest AirPods Pro has ever been, even lower than the Amazon Prime Day Deals. ***NOTE: YOU MUST ADD IT TO YOUR CART TO SEE THE $169 SALE PRICE****
Stages Dash M50 - $75 off!
$249
$174⚡ The Stages Dash M50 & L50 are both 30% off, in addition, all Stages Dash accessories are 30% off.
Polar Ignite GPS - $45 off!
$229
$183This is a very solid deal for this unit, and about the lowest we've seen it. Note that the price varies slightly based on the exact color band you select. But either way, it's a great deal.
DJI Mavic Mini - 10% off
$499 ($549 combo)
$359
Lacie 2TB & 4TB Ruggedized USB Drives - 27% off$109These are the drives I primarily use for large piles of storage with my laptop and daily use before offloading to a file server. I also sometimes edit videos off these too (though, for multiple 4K streams in video it can be a tiny bit slower than SSD drives). But still, definitely recommend these.
Kinetic Smart Control Trainer Resistance Unit - 20% off$279So this is a smart trainer (ANT+/BLE) resistance unit that fits on *ANY* Kinetic trainer frame, even those ones that are like 15 years old. It's a great way to turn an old 'dumb trainer' Kinetic frame into a new smart trainer frame - especially for 20% off.
Sonos One Smart Speaker - $50 off$149I use a blend of SONOS speakers at home and at the office. Love them, and the sales are few and far between! I use the microphone-less version (Sonos One SL), which is also on sale and a bit cheaper. Same internals, just without a microphone.
Garmin Edge 530 Cycling GPS - $50 off!
$299
$249⚡ This is the the lowest price we've ever seen on the Edge 530, and only from a handful of retailers. This is one of the main units I use for my day to day riding and testing. It's also an B&H specific sale and is highly unlikely to last long (B&H is the largest photo gear retailer out there, but also does a strong Apple & Garmin side business).
Apple iPad - Latest Model 8th Gen (64GB) - $64 off!$334I use my iPad primarily for TrainerRoad as well as Zwift when not with a larger display. I also occasionally use it for other apps, namely The SufferFest - but I pretty much test every smart trainer app on it. This is the latest iPad that was just announced barely two weeks ago, so not too bad to see it on sale already (US AMAZON DEAL ONLY).
SanDisk 256GB Extreme PRO SD Cards - 43% off$56I 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.
NPE Heartbeatz - $10 off!$39This little pod will re-transmit out your Apple watch heart rate as standard ANT+/Bluetooth Smart, Note the base sale price is 10% off, and then you'll add coupon code THE5KRUNNER to get another 10% off that price.
Lezyne Mega-C Cycling GPS - 33% off!
$199USD
$133This is a great deal for the Mega-C, which is also a great full-featured bike computer. It's got full Bluetooth/ANT+ sensor support, the ability to give turn by turn directions, and plenty more.
NPE Runn Treadmill Sensor for Zwift - 19% off$80This sensor is rarely on sale, and my favorite for treadmill use. Love it. Note the base sale price is 10% off, and then you'll add coupon code THE5KRUNNER to get another 10% off that price.
Garmin HRM-PRO - 23% off!
$129
$99⚡ If you're in the market for the HRM-PRO, this seems like a no brainer to pickup on sale. Especially since it just came out and isn't actually on the 'approved' list of Garmin sale items, so I suspect this is a short-term Amazon one-off. Take it while its there!
Garmin Forerunner 945 - $80 off
$599/599EUR
$519This is a good deal, in fact, the best deal on the FR945 we've seen in 2020. I don't anticipate this lasting long
Garmin Forerunner 935 Tri Bundle- $100 Off$399⚡ Sure, it's not the latest edition, but the FR935 is the staple of many triathletes and runners, and it still an incredible solid watch. This bundle includes the HRM-TRI and HRM-SWIM chest straps.
Stryd V2 Running Pod - $20 off$199Stryd 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.
PowerBeats Pro Wireless Sport Headphones - $75 off!
$249
$174⚡⚡ These are my daily driver headphones that I use for all my trainer rides, and anything else sport related. While they're not perfect (namely the charging case), it's what I keep going back to every day because of the seamless Apple ecosystem integration (iPad/Apple TV/iOS/Mac).
Apple Watch SE - $50 off
$279
$229This is the first time we've seen the Apple Watch SE on sale, and $50 off is a heck of a solid deal considering the far more expensive Apple Watch Series tends to only be on sale for $15-$25 off at a time.
Garmin FR935 - $100-$200 off
$499
$269⚡ Sure, it's not the latest edition, but the FR935 is the staple of many triathletes and runners, and it still an incredible solid watch. We saw this a bit lower last month on Amazon Prime Day ($239). Also, I say $100-$200 off, because the 'base' price fluctuates a bit these days. Sometimes retail is $399 sometimes $499.
Nest Cam Outdoors - 10% off$185We use one of these and so far after I think just about three years, it's working great for us. Love it, and works better than trying to stick a regular Nest Cam out the window (since it'll reflect both during daytime and at night with the IR sensor).
NPE CABLE - $5 off!
$59
$44This sensor is rarely on sale...so take any cash off ya can! Note the base sale price is 10% off, and then you'll add coupon code THE5KRUNNER to get another 10% off that price.
Synology 4 bay NAS DiskStation DS920+ (Diskless) - $110 off$439I 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.
Bontrager Flare/Ion RT Lights (ANT+ Connected) - 20% offFrom $47Bontrager was one of the first companies to make connected bike lights that pair up to Garmin's bike computers and watches. And these tiny little units are still among the best for road bikes as daytime running lights. Love em'. They'll automatically turn on/off when you start/stop your Garmin.

$249⚡ Down to $249 is a substantial deal for the Fenix 5s (non-Plus), so don't expect much in the way of major firmware updates. But still, at that price it's solid - incredible really. Note: This is still the watch my wife uses as her daily watch, even for her run this morning.

$599-$1,149
$630The Fenix 6 Pro (not the S or X variants) is on sale by Amazon for 10% off, or basically saving $70. This is a good deal, though obviously not an incredible deal. The last time we saw Fenix 6 deals was back in May 2020, for $150 off.

Lasko High Velocity Pro-Performance Fan (U15617) - 16% off$59This 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.
Suunto 9 Baro Series - $100 off
$599 (non-baro is $499)
$449This isn't quite as good a deal as for Amazon Prime Day when it was 46% off (basically $200 off), but it's still a deal nonetheless.
SanDisk 256GB Extreme PRO SD Cards - 34% off$66I 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.

Jackery Portable Power Station - $50 off$249This 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 Fenix 5X Plus
$699/699EUR
$399This is a strong deal for the Fenix 5X Plus as well, which is the largest of the three sizes. It includes payments, music, as well as well as PulseOx.
Garmin Vivomove HR with leather band - 50% off$169This is a good deal, though not incredible deal. The Vivomove HR has been replaced by the Vivomove Luxary series, so, it's not quite as new, but still has many of the same core features.
Garmin Fenix 5S - 30% off
$599
$299This is a good deal if you don't care about features like music, maps, or contactless payments on the newer Fenix 5 Plus Series or Fenix 6 series.

$63⚡ I love this little sensor, and you'll see it in almost every one of my watch/HR sensor reviews as a comparison/reference strap. It's just so darn accurate and so easy to use. Every optical HR sensor (and app with it) should aspire to be what this thing is.

Suunto 9 Baro Series - 40% off
$599 (non-baro is $499)
$359⚡ This is as good as we'll typically see for the Suunto 9 series and sales, sometimes Europe gets a touch bit higher to around 46% off, but 40% off is solid for sure.
Apple Watch Series 6 - 44mm
$399/$499 (cellular)
$15 offIt's not the biggest deal ever...but hey, it's a deal (and the only deal!).
PowerBeats Pro Wireless Sport Headphones - $75 off!
$249
$174⚡⚡ These are my daily driver headphones that I use for all my trainer rides, and anything else sport related. While they're not perfect (namely the charging case), it's what I keep going back to every day because of the seamless Apple ecosystem integration (iPad/Apple TV/iOS/Mac).
Garmin Vivoactive 4/4S - $100 off
$299
$199⚡ This is Garmin's current offering to compete with the Apple Watch series (alongside the Garmin Venu), and is currently the lowest price we've seen to date. (Amazon Prime Days)
Garmin Edge 1030 - $300 off!
$499
$299⚡⚡⚡ Holy crap that's an incredible deal. But the real kicker to remember is that the Edge 1030 is getting almost all of the Edge 1030 Plus's new features (plus it already got all the new Edge 530/830 features). Seriously, this is probably the best deal of the day. This deal probably won't last! UPDATE: YOU NEED TO CLICK "VIEW OFFER" on right side. ALSO, DEAL SEEMS TO BE ON/OFF, KEEP CHECKING BACK.
Garmin Fenix 5 Plus
$699/699EUR
$349And finally, the Fenix 5 Plus (non-S/X) joins the sale fray, also at $349 - which is a fantastic deal for all three of these units. Again, all of the Fenix 5 Plus units have music/maps/contactless payments.
DJI Mavic Mini Fly More Combo Kit - $100 off$399⚡ This is a great deal, and the lowest we've seen to date. Note deal is *ONLY* on Oct 13th and 14th at Amazon.
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.
Microsoft Surface Headphones 2 - $50 off!$199Ok, done and ordered. I'd been waiting a while (2-3 years) to order a new pair of headphones. I'm still using an older pair of Bose headphones that I've replaced the pads/everything on multiple times. But I'm tired of using AAA batteries. However, I really wanted USB-C charging. Donezo, ordered!
Synology 4 bay NAS DiskStation DS920+ (Diskless) - $110 off$439I 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. (P.S - Thanks to Jose down below in the comments for finding this deal and asking my thoughts - more discussion there.)
Garmin Tactix Charlie - $350 off$399The Tactix Charlie is essentially a Fenix geared towards military folks (Amazon Prime Days)
Fitbit Versa Lite
$169
$69DEAL MIGHT BE GONE NOW ⚡⚡ I don't even understand how this watch is only $69, but seriously, that's a great price to get a smartwatch from Fitbit (Amazon Prime Days).
Garmin Instinct - $100 off
$299
$149⚡ Sure, the new Solar variants came out this summer with a few new features, but at their core the Instincts are mostly the same. $149 is the lowest price to date we've seen on them. (Amazon Prime Days)
Fitbit Versa 2 - $50 off$127⚡ If you don't need the new features of the Versa 3 (of which, there are almost none except for built-in GPS), then this is a great option.
Fitbit Aria Air Connected Weight Scale - $30 off$34I haven't used this one yet, though have used past Fitbit Aria scales and if you're in the Fitbit ecosystem they work great (Amazon Prime Days)
Garmin Forerunner 645 Music
$399/$449 (with music)
$219This isn't a bad price per se, but for $20 more you'll get so much more watch out of the FR935 deal. However, that doesn't include music, whereas this FR645 Music Deal Does
Amazon Echo Dot - 60% off$18I use this around the studio - and for $18, it's kinda incredible what kind of technology they can pack into that price.
Withings Body WiFi Scale - 20% off$47I've long been a fan of the Withings WiFi scales, especially since they can connect/push data to so many platforms, including Zwift!
Garmin Edge 130
$199
$99⚡⚡ Woah, that's a solid deal, we've never seen it this low (Amazon Prime Day)
Garmin RTL510 Varia Cycling Radar$119⚡ This is a great deal for the Varia Radar. While it's not the newest variant released this spring, frankly, it doesn't matter. Almost nobody supports the new features (Bluetooth connectivity), and Wahoo/Stages/Hammerhead/Garmin all support this existing version fully. (Amazon Prime Days)
Suunto 7 Wear OS Watch - $70 off
$499
$433The Suunto 7 floats on and off sale occasionally, but usually not more than 20% off.
Lacie 2TB & 4TB Ruggedized USB Drives - 30% off$105These are the drives I primarily use for large piles of storage with my laptop and daily use before offloading to a file server. I also sometimes edit videos off these too (though, for multiple 4K streams in video it can be a tiny bit slower than SSD drives). But still, definitely recommend these.
Wahoo KICKR + CLIMB Bundle - $200 off!$1,599This is a simple bundle of the Wahoo KICKR 2018 + the KICKR CLIMB, for $1,599 (versus the normal cost of $1,799).
Garmin Vivoactive 4 - 31% off
$299
⚡ This is by *FAR* the lowest price I've seen for the Garmin Vivoactive 4. A very solid deal. My guess here is that they're just trying to offload some inventory, as I don't expect a replacement given Garmin just announced it's Venu SQ (and typically Garmin would concurrently announce the Venu/Vivoactive series at the same time). This unit has music (with Spotify), and an always-on screen. This is $61 lower than any price I've seen.
DJI OSMO Action (Action Cam) - Normally $329
$349
$199⚡ This is by far the lowest price we've seen on the DJI OSMO Action, and it's a very strong first contender from DJI to compete with the Hero 7 Black (realistically, except for the dual-screen, it simply doesn't compete with the Hero 8 or Hero 9). I really like a lot of elements on the OSMO Action, but especially the dual-screen. Check out my full review for comparative thoughts. While I would have said that maybe we'd see a new OSMO Action sometime this past spring (an annual refresh cycling), I'm pretty sure COVID19 has killed any chance of that happening for a while.
GoPro Hero 8 Black - $100 off!
$399
⚡ This is a great deal - and the lowest we've ever seen the GoPro Hero 8 down to, and it's been this way for a few months now. GoPro does tend to release new cameras each year in late September/Early October.
Garmin Instinct - $100 off
$299
This is a solid deal on a solid watch. It's flirted with $199 here and there at various sale prices, but with the Instinct Solar coming out last month, this might be the new norm. Either way, it's a solid price.
Garmin Instinct Tactical- $103 Off$197This is the lowest this watch has been ($100 off, and down to $197). Note that this is the non-Solar version, so do keep that in mind.
Fitbit Inspire HR - $30 Off
$69
$69
Fitbit Versa Lite - $60 Off
$169
Fitbit Charge 4 - $20 off
$149
$129
Apple Watch Series 5 - $100+ off
$399/$499 (cellular)
I believe this is the best deal we've seen to date on the Apple Watch Series 5, at $100 off. I wouldn't expect a new Apple Watch anytime soon (typical release timeframe is fall, but who knows this year). This is for both the 40mm and 44mm versions.

$499
This is a pretty solid deal for this unit, especially since it's getting a number of the recently announced 1030 Plus features later this year.
Garmin Forerunner 45/45S - $50 off
$199
$149If you're looking for a runners focused watch, there's no better deal on the market than this. Period. The FR45 basically packs all the features of the previous generation FR235...just now in the FR45 series. Seriously, this is a solid deal.
Stages Bike - Free Stages Dash M50/L50 with purchase
$2899
Save $250+Once you add a Stages Dash M50 or L50 to your cart with a Stages Bike, it'll automatically detect the cost of the Dash (so, saving you $250+). Deal ends Sunday, June 28th.
Garmin Swim 2 - $50 off
$249
$199This is the first time we've seen the Garmin Swim 2 on sale. And as part of my in-depth review I found it easily the most accurate openwater swim watch GPS-wise I've ever tested. Which, is good, since most pools seem to be closed these days. :-/
DJI OSMO Pocket - $100 offThis is the tiny little hand-held gimbal. I actually use this from time to time at tradeshows to shoot b-roll primarily.
Suunto 9 Baro Series - 30% off
$599 (non-baro is $499)
Suunto 5 GPS Multisport Watch - 17% off
$329
$279This is a very solid deal for this complete multisport watch. It's gonna be hard to find another device on the market today priced at $230 that works well for triathletes.
Garmin Forerunner 245 & 245 Music - $50 off
$299/$349
$249 & $299Both 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 Forerunner 945 - $50 off
$599/599EUR
$549Not quite as good a deal as the Fenix 6 Series at $150 off, but hey, can't look at gift horse in the mouth. Or, something like that.
inReach Mini Satellite Communicator - $50 off$299This is the second year in a row the inReach Mini has gone on sale ahead of Fathers Day. The only other time it was on sale was during Black Friday. Solid deal for a great little unit if you travel beyond cellular coverage. Plus, integration with Garmin watches has improved lately too.
Garmin Vivoactive 4/4S - $60 off
$299
Deciding on the 'correct' non-sale price is honestly a bit tricky. It floats between $299 and $349 with such regularity that one could realistically call either the non-sale price. But it does stick at $349 often for a month or so. Thus, if you wanted the VA4, being at $289 is solid.
Garmin Forerunner 945 Bundle (with HRM-TRI & HRM-SWIM) - $50 off$699Not quite as good a deal as the Fenix 6 Series at $150 off, but hey, can't look at gift horse in the mouth. Or, something like that.
GoPro Hero 8 Black Bundles with three batteries + SD Card
$399
⚡ There's some great deals in here. The base GoPro Hero 8 Black is down to $299, but this adds in two extra batteries, plus an SD card, plus a microSD card reader. Food for thought.

Garmin Venu GPS Smartwatch - $50 off
$299
This has somewhat become the new baseline for Venu. Sometimes it's $349, but a lot of the time it's $299. Either way, it's a great watch for $299. Deal ends May 16th, 2020.
Garmin Vivoactive 4/4S - $80 off
$299
This is actually the biggest discount we've seen to date. Deal ends May 16th, 2020.
Garmin Forerunner 35 GPS Watch$99This is amazing deal for a high-quality GPS watch. No, it's not crazy fancy. It has the basics, including intervals and an optical HR sensor (and the usual activity tracking/etc...). It's been a while since we've seen a Garmin watch under $100.
Wahoo ELEMNT ROAM - $50 Rebate (norm $379)
$379
$329Note, you still have to pay full price, but then on April 30th you can submit in you rebate form. Honestly, the least favorite type of sale out there. But hey, if you were going to buy one anyway - then woot! Just remember to put in a calendar reminder to submit the form!

CycleOps Hammer (Original) - $200 off
$1,199USD
$599This is a solid deal if you don't mind the slight racket that the original CycleOps Hammer makes. Note that basically there's virtually no feature differences between the H1/H2/H3 - just different colors of paint and on the H3, a different belt that makes it quieter. They're already running near identical firmware (the original Hammer got a big firmware update Aug 2019 to bring them all inline).
Polar Ignite GPS - Normally $229
$229
$179This is a very solid deal for this unit, and about the lowest we've seen it. Note that the price varies slightly based on the exact color band you select. But either way, it's a great deal.

Tacx NEO 2 Smart
$999
$998⚡ This is a great deal, especially considering there's such little difference between the NEO 2 and the NEO 2T. We saw this deal back in the fall, and it looks like Tacx found another pile of original NEO 2's to clearance out.
All Pioneer Power Meters & Bike Computer Gear Clearance!
$999
40% offThis is a Pioneer-wide clearance deal for everything power meter and cycling computer from them, following the acquisition by Shimano this past week. Note that Pioneer (as well as Shimano) have stated that warranties/etc will remain in place, as well as support. So risk-wise this is super-low risk. There are some challenges with the 8000 & 9100 based cranksets and accuracy, but Pioneer has options that don't include those cranksets. Note that Clever Training doesn't have a ton of extra inventory here, so most of this stuff won't last very long.
Elite Direto X Smart Trainer - Normally $899
$899
$799This is a solid deal for this trainer, and aside from generic 20% deals we saw over Black Friday, this is probably one of the better deals out there. The 'bonus' to Direto X is that I've seen virtually no issues with it in terms of early teething bits like the Elite Suito.
Garmin Venu GPS Smartwatch - $100 off!
$299
This is a very solid deal on this, and brings us back to Black Friday pricing. Now technically speaking this both a sale and a price reduction. Garmin has officially lowered the MAP price of Venu to $349 (from $399), and then there's $50 off sale atop that. Either way, this is in a much more price-appropriate ballpark for this watch.
Fitbit Products - Most $50 off!
$149
I'm honestly too lazy to enter in the approx 27 different Fitbit SKU's that are on sale right now. So here's a link to all of them. Basically almost everything is about $50 off. Some things a bit more, some things a bit less, but in general - $50 off.
Fitbit Versa 2 - $50 OFF!
Garmin Vivoactive 3 - Normally $249
$129

⚡⚡⚡ This is an amazeball deal. You've got not only the new Hero 8 at $50 off, but the GoPro Shorty Stick (my favorite accessory, Then you get an extra battery, and a headmount you won't ever use. Oh, and the 32GB card you might use before you buy a bigger card.
DJI Mavic 2 Mavic 2 Pro - 20% off
$999
$1,379This is a very solid drone, and realistically the best DJI has in terms of sports-focused active tracking (Active Track 2.0). Check my full review for complete details on how well it does.
DJI OSMO Action (Action Cam) - Normally $329
$349
⚡ This is the lowest price we've seen on the DJI OSMO Action, and it's a very strong first contender from DJI to compete with the Hero 7 Black (realistically, except for the dual-screen, it simply doesn't compete with the Hero 8). I really like a lot of elements on the OSMO Action, but especially the dual-screen. Check out my full review for comparative thoughts.
Garmin Venu GPS Smartwatch - $100 off!
$299
⚡⚡ This is a very good deal - and the first time we've seen the Venu on sale. I've been using it for more than two months now, and it's largely pretty stable for me at this point and working well. It's Garmin's first go at a high-end AMOLED display.
Beats PowerBeats Pro Wireless Sport Headphones (Renewed)
$249
⚡ These are what I've been mostly using lately for workouts, primarily indoors. They're great, though, I'm not a huge fan of the charging case. The fact that they're $50 for getting a factory reconditioned seems like a solid deal to me.
Garmin Forerunner 35 - $60 Off
$169
$99
Garmin Edge 530 Cycling GPS - 11% off!
$299
$265⚡ ⚡ This is the first sale we've seen on this unit, which only came out this past spring. It's also an Amazon-specific sale and is highly unlikely to last long. This is one of the main units I use for my day to day riding and testing.
Apple Watch Series 4 - $100 off!
$399/$499 (cellular)
$299⚡ This is a pretty darn strong deal. While the Series 4 doesn't have the always-on display of the Series 5, it has everything else, including a heck of a lot better battery performance/life. Note: Like the other Apple deals, this seems to come and go - so I'm leaving it here since it's like an every other day thing.

Polar Vantage M GPS Multisport Watch - Normally $279
$279
⚡⚡⚡ Woah - this is probably the deal of the year for wearable tech. This is a great little watch that includes full multisport mode (for triathletes), as well as things like full power meter support and more. Very very solid deal.
Garmin RD Pod (Running Dynamics) - 17% off
$69
$57Allows you to get not just Running Dynamics metrics, but also running power, on Garmin devices.
Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm)
$169-$179
$169⚡ This unit recently got reduced to $199, and now it's down to $169...though it seems to come and go on Amazon - so keep your eyes watching!
Polar Vantage V GPS Multisport Watch - 30% off
$499
$349⚡ This is a reasonably good deal for the Vantage V, which has seen a number of updates over the last year (and more slated in December).
Garmin Forerunner 945 - $100 Off
$599/599EUR
$499⚡⚡ This is a super hot deal - first time we've seen the FR945 on sale.

$79
$61⚡ This is one of my favorites, and I use it constantly for HR accuracy testing comparisons.
Apple Watch Series 5 - $20 off
$399/$499 (cellular)
It's a note a huge deal, but I also don't think we're going to see any huge deals this season on the new Series 5.
Garmin Forerunner 645 and 645 Music - 45% off
$399/$449 (with music)
⚡⚡ This is a great deal for this watch. Sure, it's nearly 2 years old - but it's gotten a ton of updates since it was launched, including Spotify and Amazon Music support.
Polar Vantage V GPS Multisport Watch - 30% off
$499
316EUR⚡ This is a reasonably good deal for the Vantage V, which has seen a number of updates over the last year (and more slated in December).
Garmin Vivosport GPS Band - Normally $169
$169
$119If you want a band (as opposed to a watch-form factor), and if you want GPS - then frankly there's no better GPS sport option than this one. And hey - $50 off ain't too shabby!
Tacx NEO 2 Smart - $200 off!
$999
$1049⚡ This is a great deal, especially considering there's such little difference between the NEO 2 and the NEO 2T.
GoPro Hero 8 Black w/32GB card, GoPro Shorty Stick, Extra Battery, Headstrap- $50 Off$299The Hero 8 is still a great camera, so if you don't need the extra bits of the newer Hero 9, this saves you a $100 in comparison. Plus, this includes an extra battery, shorty strick/tripod, head mount, and 32GB MicroSD Card (Disabled by martinv)
CycleOps Hammer (Original) - $200 off
$1,199USD
$599This is a solid deal if you don't mind the slight racket that the original CycleOps Hammer makes. That said, with the H3 at $799 right now, if you can stretch it, having the H3's much lower noise profile for $200 more might be worth. If you're wearing headphones...nevermind. Note that basically there's virtually no feature differences between the H1/H2/H3 - just different colors of paint and on the H3, a different belt. They're already running near identical firmware.
GoPro Hero 7 Black with 32GB- $30 Off
$329
$299
Garmin HRM-RUN (with Running Dynamics) - $20 off
$99
$79This is the odd (and unheard of) Amazon sale. This strap includes Running Dynamics, but is ANT+ only. Honestly, unless you really want Running Dynamics, I'd recommend getting the HRM-DUAL instead (it's dual ANT+/BLE).
Garmin Speed Sensor Gen2 (Dual ANT+/Bluetooth) - $5 off$35⚡ This isn't a huge deal per se, but it is my favorite speed sensor for a commuter bike as it just quietly tracks all your mileage in the background and syncs it to your phone. Also, this falls in the bucket of 'random Amazon deals that will probably disappear'.
Garmin Cadence Sensor Gen2 (Dual ANT+/Bluetooth) - $5 offNote: This is a random Amazon deal that will probably disappear. But, it's a great sensor for Zwift usage as it's not just dual ANT+/BLE, but dual-BLE atop that (so it can do two concurrent Bluetooth connections and unlimited ANT+ connections).
