If you still haven't pressed that Add to Basket button on a smartwatch just yet during Amazon Prime Day, you may well do it on this Samsung Galaxy Watch Active deal.

Samsung's smallest smartwatch is available for £174 on Amazon UK, which is down from £229 and is a hefty £55 saving on one of our current smartwatch faves.

It essentially packs in all of the best features of the bigger (and more expensive) Galaxy Watches including swim tracking, NFC for Samsung Pay, GPS/GLONASS for mapping outdoor activities all wrapped up in a 40mm watch body.

We scored the Watch Active 4/5 in our review and actually enjoyed using it more than the Galaxy Watch. You're getting a small, comfortable design, great fitness tracking features and decent wrist-based heart rate monitor performance too.

While battery life is down from the Galaxy Watch and you don't get that rotating bezel to navigate Samsung's Tizen software, there's more good than bad here.

The Watch Active only launched in February this year and actually looks set to get upgraded in the form of the Galaxy Watch Active 2 next month. But if you need a smartwatch in your life right now, it's worth considering as the new model will certainly cost more.

If you want in on this deal you'll need to be an Amazon Prime member. You can take out a 30-day free trial if you're not already signed up.

We're rounding up loads more great Prime Day deals just like these over at our Prime Day 2019 hub pages. Be sure to check them out before Prime Day finishes at midnight tonight.
