Any month is the perfect time to start a new fitness journey, lose weight and to get fit in general. And to make sure you are motivated throughout the process, getting a multisport watch or a fitness band is highly recommended. If you don't want to spend over the odds, you'd better have a look at the best cheap fitness tracker deals and the best running watch deals.

Garmin and Fitbit release loads of new wearables every year, which usually means their older – yet still absolutely competent – wearables are getting deals. Fitbit has a habit of also discounting its latest watch range pretty much instantly: the recently announced Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3 can already be bought for cheaper than their respective RRPs. As they are so popular, we also have a specific guide to the best cheap Fitbit deals and the best Apple Watch deals.

Best Apple Watch deals

Sad to say, nobody is going to do you any kind of mega deal on the slightly sportier versions of The World's Most Successful Watch Ever. 

However, if there are any deals you'll find them below. You're most likely to find deals on Series 2 Apple watches as Apple no longer sells them, leaving other retailers to compete amongst themselves for your purchase.

And you could take the view that the Series 2 is all but identical to the Series 3 (unless you want to leave your iPhone at home and connect via 4G instead, but you can only do that via EE anyway, in the UK), and hence think of buying that as a 'deal'. It's a free country.

Duncan Bell

Duncan is the former lifestyle editor of T3 and has been writing about tech for almost 15 years. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. His current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
