A handful of our recommended Fitbit devices are on sale today - Ars Technica
Dealmaster also has deals on Bose headphones, Sonos devices, iPad Pro, and more.
2 with 2 posters participating Today's Dealmaster is headlined by a bundle of deals on Fitbit activity trackers. The discounts include the Fitbit Inspire HR, down to $70 from a typical street price of around $95; the Fitbit Charge 3, down to $100 from its usual $125; and the Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatch, down to $149 from its usual $200. The Inspire HR and Charge 3 deals in particular are within a dollar of the lowest prices we've tracked on Amazon to date. We gave the Versa 2 our Ars Approved badge and recommend the Inspire HR and Charge 3 as the top two options in our fitness-tracker buying guide. We'll direct you to those posts for a more complete picture, but in short, we think the Inspire HR is the best value for most people in this market, as it comes with a quality touchscreen, reliable sleep and exercise tracking (insofar as any devices of this type can be accurate), a light and waterproof design, and a solid five-day battery life at a good price. It's a relatively streamlined tracker for those who don't need to go super in-depth.The Charge 3 adds a slightly bigger screen, more advanced features like an altimeter for tracking stairs climbed, and a seven-day battery life. We still think it's worthwhile, though it's worth noting that Fitbit recently launched a Charge 4 tracker that includes a built-in GPSthe Charge 3 and Inspire HR use the GPS data from a connected smartphonea new active minutes tracker, and more smartwatch-style features like Spotify controls and support for Fitbit Pay contactless payments. It costs $150. The Versa 2, meanwhile, lacks the built-in GPS but is a more traditional smartwatch with a larger color touchscreen instead of the Charge 4's grayscale display, the ability to store music on-device (from select services) and connect to wireless headphones, and a similar six-day battery life. In any case, you get a route into Fitbit's activity tracking software, which remains easy to grok for those looking for some extra motivation to live healthier.If you aren't interested in a fitness tracker, though, we also have deals on Bose's latest noise-canceling headphones, Sonos soundbars and subwoofers, a variety of USB-C fast chargers, and more.
