It’s back again – Amazon Prime Day…err…Days. That means that most (all?) Amazon country properties are doing pretty substantial deals across the board on all sorts of products for today and tomorrow (July 11th and 12th). This event is held each summer, usually in July, and often this day has better sports tech deals than even Black Friday does (from an Amazon perspective).
In some ways, a July sale date for sports tech items is timed perfectly. See, typically Black Friday deals are for ‘older’ things, rarely the ‘just announced’ stuff that often comes in the late August to October timeframe (especially cycling trainers and watches). But with Amazon Prime Day being in July, there’s more opportunity for brands to put things on sale for a one-off summer day. Typically speaking though, don’t expect to see things on sale that were announced this year.
To take advantage of Amazon Prime Days you simply need to be an Amazon Prime member. The good news is that you can sign-up for the free trial and cancel later if you don’t find value in it. Just hit up this giant banner below to do so:
I’ve organized all the best sports technology Amazon Prime Days deals (and a few others I’ve found) below in the tables by category. I’ll be updating them throughout the next two days. Keep in mind not all deals last (in fact, most don’t). So if you see something that’s hot, I’d strongly suggest buy now (and return later if need be).
With that, onto the deals! And thanks for supporting the site via the links below. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Enjoy!
Watches & Wearables:
This covers anything you can wear that’s watch-like or activity band-like, including sensors. Generally speaking, you’ll mostly find deals here that are on things I’ve written about in the past. So you won’t find a deal on some random non-sports tech watch here, or on socks. Unless the socks have some crazy sensor or something in them.
|Product||Sale Price||Amazon||Sale Notes|
|Apple Watch SE (2022/2nd gen) – $50 off
|$199||Amazon||⚡This is now the lowest price we’ve ever seen the Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) – a very solid deal, especially with the new WatchOS 10 features releasing soon adding in offline topo mapping, power meter support, and plenty more.|
|Apple Watch Series 8 – $120 off
|$279||Amazon||⚡This is now by far the lowest price we’ve seen to date on the Apple Watch Series 8 – a very solid deal, especially with the new WatchOS 10 features releasing soon adding in offline topo mapping, power meter support, and plenty more.|
|Fitbit Charge 5 – 33% off
|$99||Amazon||This is more or less the normal discount price we see on the Fitbit Charge 5.|
|Fitbit Inspire 3 – $20 off||$79||Amazon||This is more or less the usual sale price for the Fitbit Inspire 3|
|Fitbit Sense 2 – $70 off||$229||Amazon||This is about the normal sale price for the Fitbit Sense 2|
|Fitbit Versa 4 – 30% off||$139||Amazon||This is a pretty good deal for teh Fitbit Versa 4, and slightly better than the best sales price to date.|
|Garmin Epix (Gen 2) – $300 off
|$599||Amazon||⚡⚡This is a very solid deal for the Epix, and I think the lowest price to date. While the Epix Pro just came out, hardware-wise that merely added a flashlight and made multiband GNSS standard. All the new software features are coming to the Epix Gen 2 in a software update later this summer, with beta likely in the next few days/weeks.|
|Garmin Epix Sapphire Black Titanium (Gen 2) – $130 Off||$869||Amazon||⚡The white edition is $300 off, whereas the black sapphire edition is only $130 off. Thus, this is an good but not as incredible deal for the Epix sapphire black. While the Epix Pro just came out, hardware-wise that merely added a flashlight and made multiband GNSS standard (which this Sapphire edition already had multiband). All the new software features are coming to the Epix Gen 2 in a software update later this summer, with beta likely in the next few days/weeks.|
|Garmin Epix Sapphire White Titanium (Gen 2) – $300 Off||$699||Amazon||⚡⚡This is a very solid deal for the Epix, and I think the lowest price to date. While the Epix Pro just came out, hardware-wise that merely added a flashlight and made multiband GNSS standard (which this Sapphire edition already had multiband). All the new software features are coming to the Epix Gen 2 in a software update later this summer, with beta likely in the next few days/weeks.|
|Garmin Fenix 7 Series (All Models/Styles) – $100 off!
|From $599||Amazon||⚡Most of the Fenix 7 series, especially the Fenix 7 Saphire models, are at least $100 off, with some upwards of $300 off (depends on exact model).|
|Garmin Fenix 7X Solar Sapphire – $300 off!||$599||Amazon||⚡⚡ While most of the Fenix 7 series is $100-$200 off, this particular unit (the 7X Solar Sapphire) is $300 off, which is a massive savings! Keep in mind that while the Fenix 7X Pro just came out, the Fenix 7 series is getting all the software updates in the coming days/weeks via beta, and then in production by later this summer. Since the Fenix 7X already had the flashlight, that’s one less hardware bit.|
|Garmin Instinct – $50 off
|$142||Amazon||This is a pretty solid price, but it’s also a pretty old unit at 5 years old. Still, it’s better than a heck of a lot of its newer competitors, and is generally quite dependable. Note that while the ‘discount amount’ shows higher on Amazon, it normally floats around $190-$200.|
|Garmin Venu 2 Plus – $100 off
|$349||Amazon||This is Garmin’s main competitor to the Apple Watch series, and this is their latest edition. It’s likely due for a refresh this fall (almost always has annual refreshes), but this is still a very solid watch that’s extremely popular.|
|Garmin Venu 2S – $100 off||$249||Amazon||This is part of the Garmin Venu series that directly competes with the Apple Watch. While the Venu 2/2S is one version behind, the main differences the more expensive Venu 2 Plus has (also on sale) are around voice/speaker/calling.|
|Garmin Venu SQ & Venu SQ Music – 40% off
$199/$249 with Music
|From $119||Amazon||The newer Venu SQ 2 is out but at $119, it’s hard to beat this deal as an entry/gateway into the Garmin ecosystem.|
|Garmin Vivoactive 4 – Still on sale
|$169||Amazon||There’s argueably no device in Garmin history that Garmin has put on sale more times than the Vivoactiv 4. Yet, here are, agian on sale. Realistically, there won’t be a successor to the Vivoactive 4 in a MIP display (that the Venu series, in AMOLED). So if you own a musuem of MIP display watches, and want to ensure you have Vivoactive 4 units for decades into the future – nows your best price to date.|
|Google Pixel Watch – $100 off||$249||Amazon||⚡This is the lowest price we’ve seen to date. The watch also got some new sports/fitness/health features just a few weeks ago as well.|
|Polar Grit X Pro
|$388||Amazon||This is more or less the standard sale price for the Grit X Pro.|
|Polar H10 Chest Strap (Dual ANT+/Bluetooth Smart) – 25% off
|$75||Amazon||This is a great dual ANT+/Bluetooth Smart (with two Bluetooth Smart connections) chest strap that you’ll often find me using as a reference strap in heart rate sensor testing. We only tend to see deals on it around Black Friday, always topping out around 20%. Note, the medium- size is the one on sale.|
|Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Pro – $70 off||$379||Amazon||This watch is somewhat always on sale, but hey, it’s still on-sale.|
|Samsung Watch5 – 40% off||$159||Amazon||⚡This is by far the lowest price we’ve seen for this unit. Samsung did announce just last week that they plan to announce new products on July 25th, and it’s heavily likely a Watch6 is one of those products, thus the probable reason for this extreme discount.|
|Suunto 9 Peak Pro – $150 off
|$399||Amazon||The Suunto 9 Peak Pro is one of Suunto’s top watches. While the new top-dog is the just released Suunto Vertical, the software remains essentially the same for the Suunto 9 Peak Pro, which just last week got Strava Live Segments and other new features recently.|
Cycling Gear & Trainers:
Got a bike? Then this section is for you. Everything from bike computers to bike lights to trainers, it’s all here. I won’t generally be adding things like brake cables or bike seats here, but if I find a good deal on a cassette to stack on that new direct drive trainer you just bought, I’ll probably list it here.
|Product||Sale Price||Amazon||Other site||Sale Notes|
|Garmin Edge 1030 Plus – 50% off!
|$299||Amazon||⚡⚡This is a great deal for Garmin’s largest bike GPS. While the newer Edge 1040 is out, the Edge 1030 Plus got a boatload of features, and is still an incredible unit. At this price it’s cheaper than the newer/smaller Edge 540 and Edge 840.|
|Garmin Edge 830 Sensor Bundle – $150 off||$349||Amazon||While this isn’t a big sale, it’s actually the lowest price the unit/bundle has been offered in the 3 years since release.|
|Garmin Varia RCT715 Camera Radar – $80 off||$319||Amazon||Note, you’ll need to check the little “$30 off” coupon box to get the full $80 off!|
|Hammerhead Karoo 2 – $180 off!
|$219||N/A||The Pro’s Closet (TPC)||⚡This isn’t an Amazon deal, but heck, it’s better than most. The Karoo 2 is down to $259, but you can use DCR coupon code DCRAIN40 to get an additional $40 off, bringing it down to $219!!! A very solid deal given all the recent software updates.|
|Wahoo BOLT V2 – $50 off
|$220||Amazon||⚡This is a good little deal on the Wahoo BOLT V2, which continues to see solid upgrades includes Wahoo’s free-ride Summit Segments this past spring.|
|Wahoo ELEMNT ROAM V1 – $40 off
|$159||Amazon||While this is not the newer ROAM V2, this is still a great unit, and still gets solid firmware updates. For $159, seems pretty solid to me.|
Action Cameras & Drones:
Wanna record it? No better way than an action camera. Anything that’s action camera-related or drone-related you’ll find here. That’s especially true of action camera mounts, which are often found for great deals around the holidays. Same goes with drones and drone accessories. Usually a great time to pick up an extra battery or extra props.
Other Sports & Fitness:
Anything else that’s sports and fitness related that I think is interesting will be here. It may not be super techy – but it’s stuff that most readers will be using in pursuit of their running/cycling/swimming/hiking/whatever.
|Product||Sale Price||Amazon||Sale Notes|
|Peloton Guide – 15% off||$165||Amazon||I used it here and there, and actually kinda of like it. This seems like a reasonable price for it.|
What’s that? You’re not in the US and still want a deal? No problem! Note that on Amazon Europe deals, generally speaking, you can order from any Amazon European country site (i.e. Amazon France) and have it shipped within the EU (i.e. Spain). Thus, many times deals are duplicated across the sites. I generally try and just distill it down to one.
Remember these deals refresh each day for the most part, and usually only last a few hours. Jump if you see something you like!

|Garmin Epix (Gen 2) – €320 off
|€585||Amazon||⚡⚡This is a very solid deal for the Epix, and I think the lowest price to date. While the Epix Pro just came out, hardware-wise that merely added a flashlight and made multiband GNSS standard. All the new software features are coming to the Epix Gen 2 in a software update later this summer, with beta likely in the next few days/weeks.|
|Garmin Varia Radar (RTL516) – €50 off||€149||Amazon|
DCR Random Gadget List:
This is basically the mostly totally unrelated gadgets and things I think are cool deals that I’ve likely bought one or five of (you can never have too many, right)? Some of it’s probably photography stuff. Some of it’s random stuff like chargers and battery packs that I use daily, fun camera gear I use to make videos like sliders and turntables, and well…just random things you’ll find around the DCR Cave. It’s all random…but it’s all awesome randomness!
|Product||Sale Price||Amazon||Sale Notes|
|Jackery Portable Power Station – $70 off||$219||Amazon||This is something I use frequently when shooting out and about and I need to re-charge a crapton of drone batteries, action cameras, or just cameras and such. I also use it on trips to Eurobike and elsewhere to keep equipment charged. I’ve even bought a solar panel to hook up to it (surprisingly effective). Heck, I’ve even powered a KICKR trainer ride from it!|
|Ooni Fyra 12 Wood Fired Outdoor Portable Pizza Oven – $70 off!||$279||Amazon||⚡ I know, I know, I still owe everyone a review. Nonetheless, two years later, I love this thing. We use it for more than pizza too, notably steaks (to get a really crispy sear). But a lot of pizza. It’s completely portable, even easily fitting on our cargo bike. Note that I went with this model, the cheapest one they make, as I realized that buying the higher-end models that that support gas didn’t make much sense for me. I have a gas grill already (and could easily just put a stone on it). Similarly, while a large 16″ is appealing, realistically I’ve found this 12″ more than enough for pretty substantial personal pizzas (and it makes it easier to handle). Full in-depth review pretty soon…probably.|
