Black Friday is still a few days away from draining your bank account, but it's never too early to try and plan ahead and soften the financial blow. Luckily for those on the hunt for a Fitbit, there are plenty of options at your disposal.

But with more deals popping up than you'll know what to do with and Fitbit's increasing stable of fitness trackers, it can be hard to decipher which is best for you and which represents the best value for money.

So whether you're in the US or UK, take a look below for our guide to picking up a Fitbit on 24 November. And for Fitbit deals as they happen, make sure to bookmark this page and check back on the big day.

Best US Fitbit Black Friday deals

Best Buy and Target are two of the big the retailers to keep an eye on this year, and both have already announced a handful of deals. Also keep your eye on Amazon and its deals, which tend to continue throughout the weekend and into Cyber Monday.

  • Fitbit Alta HR - $99.95, down from $149.99 - Target
  • Fitbit Charge 2 - $99.95, down from $149.95 - Target
  • Fitbit Blaze - $149.95, down from $199.99 - Target

Meanwhile, Walmart will not only match that $100 price tag for the Alta HR and Charge 2 on Black Friday, but it'll also throw in a second band worth around $30.

Best UK Fitbit Black Friday deals

It's not just those Stateside that can take advantage of the savings, with retailers in the UK hopping on board the Black Friday bandwagon.

In 2016, Currys PC World, John Lewis, Tesco and Argos were all on board, and we don't expect this to change this time around. Amazon, meanwhile, has already announced it will be run deals from the 17-26 November. It's not exactly in the spirit of Black Friday, but we can't argue with a full 10 days of savings.

There's currently no word on Garmin deals in the UK, but expect them very soon. Also look out for savings from Argos and Currys PC World. We'll update this section with the best of the crop of Fitbit deals as and when they happen.

Which Fitbit trackers will hit the sale?

Looking to pick up the fresh Fitbit Ionic and you might be disappointed, but that doesn't mean there won't be plenty to look at come Black Friday. In fact, since the Ionic is the new head of the table, this could mean that we see previous flagship trackers receive an uncharacteristic reduction.

If we're pencilling in our predictions, it's likely that the Fitbit Alta will be the tracker most involved in the price hits. And while this is largely down to the device being superseded by the Fitbit Alta HR, that too could form part of the sales.

Elsewhere, with the Fitbit Blaze being muscled out by the Ionic and the company expected to release a second iteration in 2018, this could wind up being on the chopping block. Although the Fitbit Charge 2 is still king among Fitbit's tracking stable, it's also rumoured to be getting replaced next year.

Which Fitbit is right for you?

Aside from questioning the nature of capitalism and the philosophy of money this Black Friday, deciding which Fitbit is right for you is chief among your concerns.

With its throng of devices all offering different capabilities and limitations, this is by no means an easy task, either. We've already explored which Fitbit tracker you should buy in depth, but it's worth going through the broad strokes here.

If you're a swimmer, for example, the Fitbit Flex 2 is the only waterproof option available to you. And if you're interested in a device with a screen, heart rate data and sleep tracking, the Alta HR and Charge 2 are worthy of a more in-depth look. Don't forget, for those looking to keep a really basic track on their step, the Fitbit Zip is also still available.

What about accessories?

Much like Apple, Fitbit allows you to freshen up your wrist with a range of different bands. This admittedly isn't the most exciting bit of kit you can pick up during the mountain of sales, but don't underestimate the power of mixing up how you wear your device.

Fitbit itself will no doubt be putting much of its own bands on sale, which means you can hunt down a leather, metal or rubber option, but there's also its line of designer collections to consider, too. It's still unclear whether the collaborative options from Public School or Tory Burch will also see sales, but seeing as though these sit on the more expensive end of the accessory scale, there may not be a better time to pull the trigger.

With so much to choose from, including plenty of third-party options, make sure to head over to our best Fitbit accessories round-up in order to delve deeper.
