Looking for sweet sports tech sales? Then you’ve come to the right place!
I’ll update this page live as noteworthy sports tech sales happen. Things like GPS watches, bike computers, action cams, fitness wearables, and the like. Probably no diamond rings here (unless it’s a wearable encrusted in diamonds). All the jazz I’d usually write about, you’ll find deals here.
Generally speaking, here’s the most popular times for big sales:
February: No idea why, this just seems to be the case. Though, sometimes companies clear out older stock as new product announcements are made in early January.
May: Many (almost all) companies put sports tech products on sale each May – largely to get you motivated to buy something for the warmer weather.
July: Amazon Prime Day – this can be a biggie, but it’s kinda a mix of what’s offered. It’s mostly older stuff, and usually watches, scales, and some action camera accessories.
November-December: Usually starts in early November, then into Black Friday and finally pre-Christmas sales in December. This is the super-bowl of sales.
Here’s what’s currently on sale:

|*Garmin Varia UT800 Lights||-||$30 off||Mar 18 2018||Mar 31 2018||Link||Link||I actually like this deal, mostly because I actually like these lights. Slim but powerful, and still controlled by your Garmin automatically (though, you don't have to have them controlled by it).|
|Fitbit Alta||$129||$30 off||Mar 18 2018||Mar 31 2018||Link||Link|
|Fitbit Alta HR||$149||$20 off||Mar 18 2018||Mar 31 2018||Link||Link|
|Fitbit Ionic||$299||$30 off||Mar 18 2018||Mar 31 2018||Link||Link|
|Garmin FR235 - Permanent Price Drop||$249||Now $249||Mar 18 2018||Mar 31 2018||Link||Link||Was $329...which was horribly overpriced against the Vivoactive series. Still, while this is a 'OK price' for this running-specific unit, I feel like it's a bit old now, especially since the Vivoactive 3 is the same price and has contactless/NFC pavements and boatloads of other sports.|
|Garmin Forerunner 35 - Permanent Price Drop||$199||Now $169||Mar 18 2018||Mar 31 2018||Link||Link||Was previously $199, now $169. Seems mostly fair.|
|Garmin Varia Radar (both base and bundle)||-||$50 off either one||Mar 18 2018||Mar 31 2018||Link||Link||This puts the base radar unit at $149, and the bundle at $249|
|Garmin Varia Vision||-||$100 off||Mar 18 2018||Mar 31 2018||Link||Link||Thus making the price $299...still seems expensive to me.|
|Garmin Vivoactive 3||$269||Up to $30 off||Mar 18 2018||Mar 31 2018||Link||Link||Prices start from $259, and depending on model go up to $30 off|
