Black Friday has now technically passed us by, but luckily the smartwatch and fitness tracker savings have continued through the weekend leading into Cyber Monday 2019.
We've already seen massive discounts on the Apple Watch, as well as smartwatches and fitness trackers from Fitbit, Garmin and Samsung and many of these are still available.
Black Friday smartwatch deal highlights for Cyber Monday:
Today's new surprise deal is on the Fitbit Versa 2. It was already $50 off for Black Friday, but Amazon has just dropped the price even further. You can now save $70.95 but we don't know for how long.
Garmin's newest smartwatch, the Garmin Venu, still has $100 off but probably not for long. Snap this up before it goes.
You don't want to miss these deal of the day discounts from Amazon on Fossil 2019 smartwatches including the Fossil Gen 5.
These discounts come as a real surprise as these models were only released a few weeks ago and are Fossil's newest smartwatches.
Amazon has also just dropped the price of the Fitbit Charge 3 to a new all-time low.
Apple Watch Black Friday deals
We were excited to see an Apple Watch Series 3 for around the $150 mark, but Walmart has announced in its Black Friday ad a deal that blows that straight out of the water. On Black Friday, Walmart will have the Series 3 for just $129 for the 38mm GPS model, or $159 if you want the larger 42mm model. That's incredible value.
We don‚Äôt think the Series 5 will see a substantial price cut because it‚Äôs so new. There‚Äôs a chance Apple will run a gift card promotion where you get a free voucher alongside a purchase from the Apple Store as it has done in previous years, but that might be the best you‚Äôll see.
If you're after a new strap for your Apple Watch, check out this great deal from Southern Straps where they've not only had their prices discounted but you can also get 3 for the price of 2.
Head over to our dedicated Apple Watch Black Friday page where we go into more depth on the deals available and how you can grab a bargain.
Fitbit Black Friday deals
Between its smartwatches and fitness trackers, Fitbit has a raft of devices primed for a Black Friday discount. A lot of the devices that were widely on sale for Black Friday 2018 have now been discontinued and replaced with newer models, so it‚Äôs not that helpful to look back a year.
We've already seen the new Fitbit Versa 2 get its first big price drop, too - drifting from $200 to $150 on Amazon.
Fitbit's first smartwatch, the Fitbit Ionic, has had $100 taken off its price.
The Fitbit Charge 3 has commonly been on sale for as low as the $119.99 mark this year but that price has been blown out of the water with a new record low of $99.95.
There's currently a deal from Amazon UK for its Early Black Friday deals, which takes the Charge 3 down to its lowest price.
For younger users there have been a big discount on the Fitbit Ace 2.
You can read more of our Fitbit Black Friday deals over at its dedicated page.
Garmin Black Friday deals
Garmin might not be who you think of when it comes to smartwatches, but it's been increasingly packing smartwatch features into its sports watches.
Garmin just launched a whole new range of running watches and smartwatches at IFA in September, so older models are almost certainly going to get a discount for Black Friday 2019.
Already there have been a big range of discounts from Amazon as part of its Countdown to Black Friday promotion.
One of the best is on the Garmin Venu, which has had $100 taken off. This is one of Garmin's newest devices so a big discount this early is a real surprise.
There have also been discounts on the new Garmin Vivoactive 4 and smaller Vivoactive 4S.
Garmin's Vivomove HR hybrid smartwatch has also had 25% wiped off its price.
It's not just the new models that have had steep discounts, though. Older models have also had their prices wiped in order to make way for the newer models.
The still excellent Vivoactive 3 is at a bargain price for anyone not looking to stretch to the Vivoactive 4.
The Forerunner 645 Music is also now heavily discounted.
Elsewhere, the Fenix 5 range has had some whopping 50% savings.

Samsung Black Friday deals
Right out of the blocks, Amazon has dropped some big discounts on the Galaxy Watch Active 2, bringing both sizes down to record low prices. These are great choices for anyone after a sportier smartwatch.
There are also discounts on the (only slightly) older Galaxy Watch Active. We've already seen Amazon drop the price by $30, so there's a chance it could go even lower than $150 for Black Friday.
Best Buy have some big discounts on the Samsung Galaxy Watch, wiping $80 off the price of both sizes in its Black Friday price now promotion.
If you're in the UK you can also get a big discount on the smaller Galaxy Watch model.
Best Buy also has a discount on the Samsung Galaxy Fit, taking $20 off the price.
We're still waiting to see promotions on other Samsung smartwatches and fitness trackers. Last year the Samsung Gear Sport was discounted to $179, a price it‚Äôs stayed relatively consistently at throughout the year. That could mean a discount to around $150 this Black Friday.
The Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro was on sale for $149.99 last year, but we‚Äôve already seen it being sold as low as $120 at certain points. We‚Äôre hoping for a discounted price of around $100 to really make this fitness tracker appealing.

Fossil Black Friday deals
At this point, if you're an iPhone user, an Apple Watch is a bit of a no-brainer. But if you're an Android smartphone owner, Fossil has been one of the biggest supporters of Wear OS.
Amazon has a range of deal of the day discounts, which means they'll only last one day (11/28) so snap these up before they're gone. You can save on a whole bunch of Fossil's latest 2019 models.
There have also been some big discounts on Fossil Gen 4 smartwatches for both men and women.
Check out more Fossil deals at our Fossil Black Friday 2019 hub.
Wear OS Black Friday deals
The TicWatch range is known for its budget-friendly price point, and that‚Äôs even more true when they go on discount.
The Skagen Falster 2 is one of the most stylish Wear OS watches, and the good news is that it's been discounted to just $149.
Don't forget these work just fine with both Android and iOS phones.
When is Black Friday 2019?
Black Friday 2019 this year falls on 29 November. It is guaranteed to bring discounts on smartwatches from every brand, including Apple, Samsung, Fossil, Fitbit and Garmin.
We‚Äôll be keeping this page updated during the entirety of Black Friday 2019. Black Friday has blown up beyond just a single day, so definitely expect discounts for the entire week starting on Monday 25 November and through to Cyber Monday 2019 on Monday 2 December.
Where will I find Black Friday smartwatch deals?
Pretty much all of the big retailers are going to get involved for Black Friday 2019. Amazon will certainly be up there both sides of the pond.
Amazon Black Friday smartwatch deals
One advantage Amazon might have over other retailers is if you're an Amazon Prime member. That expedited delivery is great news for anyone particularly impatient.
The good news is that if you're not already a member, you can take out a tactical 30-day free trial to see you through the Black Friday sales. You can cancel at any time before the 30 days are up but Amazon is hoping you'll get hooked on all of the perks alongside faster delivery.
Expect retailers to publish their Black Friday ads as early as the beginning of November. Walmart, Best Buy and Target are in particular famous for showcasing some of their best deals well ahead. That's handy if you want to prepare yourself for the discounts.
As mentioned, the Apple Watch Series 3 deal from Walmart in particular should have your interest.
We'll be sure to mention any Black Friday ads as they begin to appear.
What Black Friday smartwatch deals should I avoid?
The one thing to keep in mind is that you should stick to reputable retailers. There's a big temptation to look at grey importers shipping out of Hong Kong and China, as these can have some seriously low prices.
The problem with grey imports is that the warranty might not be valid for the territory where it's been imported, so you might run into problems down the line.
You also might run into other issues like not getting the same accessories, such as chargers, that you would when buying a local version.
You can also face long delivery times and possibly customs charges once the package arrives at its destination, adding in hidden charges.
If you're ever in doubt, it's probably a good idea to purchase on a credit card if it has any kind of purchase protection. That way your credit card provider can step in for any disputes.
How will I know I'm getting a good deal for Black Friday?
First off, we're only going to be highlighting the deals you should be aware of here on Wareable. Because we're always keeping an eye on prices, we can spot a genuine discount from a dud.
During Black Friday, retailers can give false or misleading discounts. That's because they might quote the original RRP when showing the discount, making it look much bigger than it is.
Beyond constantly monitoring prices, there are tools to help you look at the historical price of a product. That way you can know if the discount is genuine.
A great browser extension is Keepa, which embeds a price history graph onto Amazon pages so you can instantly see previous prices. When you're being swamped with Amazon Black Friday deals, it'll save you loads of time.
The other thing to keep in mind is making sure you buy something worthwhile. Black Friday is a chance for retailers to clear out stock of products that aren't selling very well, perhaps because they're just not very good.
There's no point making a big saving on a cheap smartwatch if it turns out to be terrible. So with that in mind, be sure to check out our reviews and guides first to make sure your smartwatch or fitness tracker does precisely what you need it to do.
Also consider what you need from your wearable. If you're only after basic activity tracking, an inexpensive fitness tracker might do the trick rather than dropping big cash on a smartwatch.
