​Amazon Prime Day deals bonanza

If you're shopping for deals on fitness trackers, smartwatches and sports tech on Amazon Prime Deals Day, we've got you covered. Here you'll find early word on all the latest deals in the US and UK.

Prime Day will work much the same as Black Friday, with a handful of deals running all day, but the majority appearing as timed "lightening" deals. That means you'll have to be online at the right time to bag what you want, which is where Wareable comes in. Check when they go live here and bookmark this page so you can click straight though quickly and easily.

There'll also be a few deals though that run throughout the day and we've got the ball rolling with the first round of best wearable tech and connected home devices from Amazon and listed them below.

In the UK, John Lewis, Currys/PC World and Argos are also getting in on the act offering deals on a range of wearable tech. You can check the best offers below our Prime Day deals.

Amazon Prime Day US deals

Fitbit Alta bundle

Fitbit Alta has been a big hit for the company. It's a slimmer tracker that's discreet and fashionable on top of being functional. Right now, Prime Day is also offering a decent deal on the Alta with an accessory band.

$143.98 (down from $125.95) | Get deal

Samsung Gear S2

The Samsung Gear S2 is the top wearable we recommend for its user interface and rotating bezel. It's the first Samsung smartwatch that stands out from the others in the line as a visually appealing device and fun wearable to use.

$285 (down from 299.99) | Get deal

Garmin Forerunner 225

The Forerunner 225 is last year's device but still isn't one to be missed. We even gave it four stars and said, "The combination of the colour screen and vibrating alerts makes heart rate tracking not only easier to understand but more simple to apply in practical sessions."

$219.99 (down from $299.99) | Get deal

Polar H7 Bluetooth Heart Rate Sensor & Fitness Tracker

When heart rate isn't as accurate as it can be, your next best bet is a chest strap. In all our tests, the Polar H7 has been a solid companion during fitness wearable reviews that need heart rate comparisons.

$34.49 (down from $54.95) | Get deal

Withings Activité Steel

Just like in the UK, the Activité Steel is also on sale. It's one of the sleekest smart analogue wearables you can find and now, you could have it for cheaper price.

Huawei Watch

The Huawei Watch is arguably the best looking of the current Android Wear crop and not just because it doesn't have one of those ugly flat tyres at the bottom of the screen. Our biggest problem has always been the price, so that's why it's good news to see some discounts.

How do you get Amazon Prime Day deals?

Of course, Prime Day isn't just a big Amazon birthday giveaway – the company is creating a new shopping date in the calendar, and is taking a chance to promote its Prime service.

To take advantage of the deals you have to be a member of Amazon's service, but you can sign up for the free Prime trial to take part. What's more, and there's no obligation to carry that onto the paid-for subscription. It's a good ploy by Amazon to get people onto its Prime service, which offers a host of benefits for a $99 annual charge. It includes preferential delivery times and, of course, access to Amazon Prime's on-demand video service.
