Fitbit Black Friday 2018 deals: Grab a fitness tracker or smartwatch bargain

Hunting out a Fitbit on the cheap on the big day of deals

Along with the Apple Watch, we imagine buying one of Fitbit's fitness trackers and smartwatches is going to be high on the shopping lists for many on Black Friday.

Last year, we saw significant Black Friday deals on the Fitbit Ionic, as well as the Fitbit Charge 2, Fitbit Alta HR and Fitbit Blaze.

With the arrival of the Fitbit Versa and the Charge 3 this year, we expect more deals to be lined up by the likes of Amazon and retailers in the UK and US, including Best Buy, Target, Currys and Argos. Don't be surprised if Fitbit gets in on the action itself, as well.

The Black Friday 2018 deals may not officially kick off until 23 November, but Amazon has already started the action with its Early Black Friday deals where some Fitbits are getting some love. We've also pulled together the devices we think will be included, as well as some of the deals that have already leaked through Black Friday ads.

Fitbit Versa Black Friday deals

We didn't expect to see Fitbit's second smartwatch be part of the Black Friday extravaganza, but early leaked deals suggests you will be able to pick up a cut-price Versa. When you consider that the smartwatch retails at $199, that makes the smartwatch that does everything that the pricier Ionic does (aside from having built-in GPS) even better value for money. Early deals point to a $149.95 price from multiple retailers, which is a substantial $50 off the usual price.

Fitbit Charge 3 Black Friday deals

Now, the Fitbit Charge 3 has only just launched, but when it's cheaper to buy than the Fitbit Charge 2, it doesn't make a lot of sense to recommend Fitbit's older flagship tracker. It's sure to be strong seller over the coming months for Fitbit and Black Friday is going to be a good opportunity to give it a nice push. Unlike the Charge 2, it has dedicated swim tracking features and a more attractive design inspired by Fitbit's Versa and Ionic smartwatches. There's still no GPS, but if you're happy to run or ride with your phone, you can piggyback off your phone's signal to map routes.

Fitbit Alta HR Black Friday deals

The Alta HR and the Alta remain the slimmest devices in the Fitbit family that pack in a touchscreen display. They're also two of the best fitness trackers you can get on your wrist, offering solid fitness tracking skills, top notch sleep tracking and heart rate monitoring (on the Alta HR only). Amazon has been offering cut-price Fitbit Alta and Alta HRs around the £99 price mark on its website over the past six months, and the duo look likely to feature during this year's Black Friday too.

Fitbit Ionic Black Friday deals

Like the Alta devices, Amazon has been carrying discounts on the Fitbit's debut smartwatch. For last year's Black Friday, the Fitbit Ionic dropped to around £250 and it looks set to drop to around the £200 mark this year. As a reminder, the Ionic is the smartwatch with an angular design, built-in GPS, all the standard Fitbit fitness tracking skills and 4-5 days battery life.

Fitbit Flex 2 Black Friday deals

If you don't care about screens and you want something to go swimming with, the Flex 2 is a solid little performer that is likely to make the BF deals cut. Last year it dropped to around £50, which is not bad for a wearable that offers automatic swim tracking, smartphone notification support and all the standard fitness tracking features including sleep monitoring.

Fitbit Ace Black Friday deals

Fitbit's first fitness tracker for kids only launched this year, but we've already seen the price drop. With Christmas around the corner, it makes sense that Fitbit and retailers getting in on the Black Friday action will cut the price. Modelled on the design of the Alta, the Fitbit Ace covers step tracking and sleep monitoring. It also works with a child's own smartphone to receive call alerts. Plus, the wearer can challenge other Fitbit-owning members of the family to see who can put in the most daily and weekly steps.
