Check the Amazon Sale on Smartwatches
If you’ve been tempted to buy a smartwatch or fitness band but just can’t justify the price of a new model, you may want to check out the sale currently going on at Amazon.com. The online retailer is offering rock-bottom prices on used, open-box returns, refurbished and discontinued models of some of the most popular wearable devices in stores now. Sorry, no Apple Watches but if you’ve been considering picking up a fitness band, this is a good opportunity to score a great deal.
Prices for the sharp looking Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit start at just $54.99 with free shipping for a “used –acceptable” model with refurbished models starting at $69.00. The Amazon price for a new Gear Fit is $99.00 so these used models could be a good deal for the buyer who is curious about fitness devices but doesn’t want to pay full price for one.
Some of the lowest prices are for the recently discontinued UP by Jawbone with used models of the fitness band starting at $23.12 and going up to $38.69. New open-box returns start at $27.99 plus $4.99 shipping while factory refurbished models with a 90-day warranty are going for $34.99. Not surprisingly, these are going fast.
The Sony Smartwatch SW2 for Android Phones starts at $83.89 for a model with a silicone band while the metal band version is going for $100.79, both for a used device.
The LG Electronics G Watch is available in used, open-box or new versions starting at $70.00 plus $4.99 shipping. Refurbished models start at $94.99.
Yes, the pickings are a bit slim right now but as more smartwatches go on sale and manufacturers bring out new models to replace the old ones, we’re sure to see better deals on wearable devices.
