If you’re looking for a Fitbit fitness tracker this Black Friday, the latest Charge 6 is getting the best deals.
Both in the US and the UK, the Charge 6 has already been heavily discounted, and is currently available to buy for less than last year’s Charge 5. And it’s hard to believe there will be better offers.
In the US, Best Buy has the Charge 6 for $99.95 – down from its MSRP of $159.95.
And in the UK, Argos has the Fitbit Charge 6 at £119. It’s a smaller discount than the US (so far) but it still makes it cheaper than the Charge 5.
In our Fitbit Charge 6 review, we were impressed enough to give out a 4/5 score and a Top Pick badge. While the design didn’t change from the Charge 5, Google has added support for services such as Google Maps and Google Pay, which makes it a better everyday device.
What’s more, we found that the new heart rate algorithms offered more accurate tracking during workouts.
A word of caution, however. We found the accuracy of the built-in GPS absolutely rubbish, so it’s not recommended for runners under any circumstances.
We’d be surprised if the Charge 6 got any superior discounts in the US this Black Friday, so there’s no need to hold back.
But the UK could see prices go even lower. Time will tell.
