The Samsung Watch 3 has top-of-the-line health features, including sensors that can perform an ECG and measure your blood oxygen levels. The stylish design doesn’t scream “smartwatch,” and it’s compatible with both Android and iPhones, which it makes a great gift for anyone.

The 41mm model is $340, and the 45mm model is $370. 

This deal is available now.

If you want to save more than few dollars and get a Samsung Galaxy Watch that has almost the same features as the Galaxy Watch 3, get the Active 2. It was just recently updated in 2020 to include the ECG feature, plus it can measure your VO2 max and has fall detection. It’s just a bit smaller than the Watch 3, and according to our review, more comfortable to sleep with, if you want to use it for sleep tracking.

This deal is available now.

Fitbit’s newest top-tier smartwatch, the Sense, is $50 off this Black Friday at Best Buy. The watch has the most features of any Fitbit yet, and can track your stress, temperature, blood oxygen and sleep. It can also deliver notifications from your phone to your wrist so you never miss a beat.

This deal begins on Nov. 22.

One of our favorite Fitbits, the Versa 2 is on sale this Black Friday at Best Buy. It’s near-perfect mashup of a fitness tracker and smartwatch, with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant on board, at a great price. Granted, this is last year’s model, so you miss out on the addition of GPS, Google Assistant and a few extras. Still, we think the Versa 2 is a worthy buy.

This deal begins Nov. 22 at Best Buy and will also be available at Walmart on Nov. 25.

The 2020 entry-level Fitbit Inspire 2 is a slim fitness tracker with just enough features for someone who wants to keep tabs on their activity levels and stay updated on their phone’s alerts. It has an 10-day battery life and checks the boxes for sleep tracking and heart-rate monitoring. 

This deal begins Nov. 22 at Best Buy and will also be available at Walmart on Nov. 25.
