Deal Alert: The Fitbit Charge 3 is back down to its Black Friday lowest price

A top fitness tracker for cheap

The Fitbit Charge 3 is a firm favorite here at Wareable, winning Fitness Tracker of the Year at our Wareable Tech Awards 2018. It's great news then that Amazon has just dropped the price back to its all-time low, last seen during Black Friday. That means you can now pick one up for just $119.86 – a saving of $30 if you act fast.

As well as winning at our annual awards, the Fitbit Charge 3 got a 4/5 review. It improves on a lot of aspects from the hugely popular Fitbit Charge 2, including a 30% larger display.

One of the most welcome upgrades comes from its added water-resistance. The Charge 3 has a swimproof design, and adds in swim tracking to bolster its already excellent exercise, activity and sleep tracking.

While the Charge 3 isn't billed as a smartwatch – consider the Ionic or Versa if you're after one of those – it does have smartphone notification mirroring. That's always handy if you just want to see what's caused your phone to vibrate in your pocket.

Our review stated: "The screen is big enough that I’m able to easily read text messages (one of the few things I allow notifications from) and a swipe down on the main clock face will drag down the notification tray."

The one thing the Charge 3 lacks is built-in GPS but you can at least piggyback your paired phone's GPS if you want more accurate outdoor tracking. Considering there's no built-in storage for your music, you might well find you want to bring your phone along anyway.

The Fitbit Charge 3 is back down to its Black Friday lowest price

The current sale price at Amazon is the lowest price the Charge 3 has ever been sold by the retailer, and matches its Black Friday low. So if you're interested, we'd pick one up before it goes back up to its usual $150 price where it's been sat for the past few weeks.

If you're not already an Amazon Prime member, it's worth signing up for a free 30-day trial for expedited delivery, too.
