Save on Activity Trackers and Smartwatches This Cyber Monday
What Is Wearable Tech?
As you would expect, wearable technology is any gadget that you wear, but more than that, it’s a group of connected devices that use sensors to provide up-to-the-second information you can use to achieve your goals of being active, staying fit, losing weight or being more organized. And they’re expected to be popular gifts this Christmas season. That’s why, on Cyber Monday, smart watch, fitness tracker, sport watch, smart jewelry and smart clothing offers will be popular with shoppers looking to take advantage of the reduced prices.
Fitbit or Apple Watch, Cyber Monday Quandary?
Deciding whether to go all in on the Cyber Monday Fitbit deals or the Cyber Monday Apple Watch deals is not easy. You can give yourself a shopping edge by doing some research in advance, evaluating product details and checking customer reviews online, in order to make your best buying decision.
For example, when you’re considering Fitbit, Cyber Monday sale choices are not limited to one or two models. In fact, there are many Fitbit options. Fitbit offers wristbands/clips that count steps, distance and calories burned. The Charge 3 offers multisport mode, connected GPS, cardio fitness level and guided breathing sessions. You can also select from two Fitbit smart fitness watches, which pretty much do everything already listed. The Fitbit Versa, which includes features such as sleep stages, connected GPS, cardio fitness levels and guided breathing sessions, and the Fitbit Iconic, which builds on its fitness capabilities with a color touchscreen, notification support, music control, built-in GPS tracking, water-resistance, swim tracking, an SO2 sensor and an app platform running a Fitbit operating system.
On the flip side, there’s the Apple Watch Series 4 smartwatch. If you’re an iPad or iPhone user, and you want to add to your collection of Apple devices with an Apple Watch, Cyber Monday is one of the few times during the year when you can expect to find discounted prices. Along with its extensive fitness capabilities, the Series 4 has an LTE cellular antenna built into the screen, which allows you to stay connected even when you’re away from your iPhone. It also has a microphone that allows you to make calls with just your watch, and it lets you interact with Siri, Apple's intelligent assistant, to set reminders or get directions.
