Amazfit's huge one-day sale includes the Band 5 for $28

The wearable brand's entire lineup is on sale with discounts as high as $75.

Amazfit is one of those gadget success stories I can really get behind. The brand popped onto the scene a few years ago with the Amazfit Bip, an Apple Watch look-alike that offered solid performance for a crazy-low price. And it turned out not to be a fluke; Amazfit has continued to churn out quality wearables at value prices, becoming a real powerhouse for people who like to put things that light up on their wrist. As if the company's prices weren't already low enough, Amazfit is having a one-day sale with discounts up to $75 on models throughout its lineup on Amazon.  

There's something here for everyone today from the Amazfit Bip U (the successor to the original Bip) which is just $40, to the most deeply discounted product in the Amazfit inventory, the $175 Zepp E (a savings of $75). There are a dozen wearables on sale in total, and here are the ones you should definitely check out before the price tags turn back into pumpkins.

Virtually identical to the Xiaomi Band 5 (Amazfit is owned by Huami, which is a Xiaomi partner), Amazfit's version of the Band 5 is currently 30% off and available in three colors: black, olive and orange. 

There's a lot going on under the hood. The Band 5 measures heart rate, blood oxygen level, steps, sleep and more. It can also monitor your stress levels and run guided breathing exercises.

And on the watch's front, you get a choice of over 45 colorful faces, plus the typical stuff like notifications, call alerts and meeting reminders. You can't reply to a text message, but you can decline a phone call. You can also control music playback and your phone's camera shutter. You get 15 days of battery life and built-in Alexa support.

The Bip U is currently 33% off, a great deal on a watch that's usually an already-reasonable $60. Consider it an alternative to the generally great Bip S smartwatch. It's nearly identical, but with a brighter, sharper TFT screen instead of the always-on transflective one. That means lower battery life, though nine days is nothing to sneeze at. However, there's one key feature missing here: GPS. If you plan to track outdoor runs and the like, consider the Bip S or the Bip U Pro instead. (Unfortunately, neither of those models are on sale today.)

The Zepp E is a market $250 smartwatch with a gorgeous display and plenty of health and activity features, and today only you can snag it for 30% off.  It has a bright, razor-sharp AMOLED display under curved glass -- a striking design choice that, with some faces, makes it look like the screen goes edge-to-edge. It has a superb watch face gallery and a solid 15 days of battery life. 

On the other hand, it's usually priced a little high when you consider that it lacks features like LTE and ECG readouts, which are increasingly considered table stakes. But the deep discount during today's sale makes this watch a much better deal.
