What Prime Day smartwatch deals we saw last year
Last year, we saw modest discounts on the Apple Watch range along with bigger price cuts for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and the Garmin running watch range. The more budget-friendly Samsung Galaxy Watch Active also enjoyed a hefty price cut as part of the Prime Day smartwatch sales going on.
The Fitbit Versa 2 also had its price cut significantly, in part due to it being replaced by the superior Fitbit Sense further down the line. Smartwatches like the Fossil Gen 5 were also part of the Prime Day smartwatch deals keen to lure customers in.
