Before you start looking for deals, it's important to figure out what you need in a wearable or you may end up spending more on features you don't need. Designated fitness bands such as Fitbit's Charge 3 and , or Garmin's Vivofit tend to be cheaper options. You get basic activity tracking, watch features and notifications, but you're limited by a smaller screen.
Smartwatches such as the Fitbit Versa or Samsung Gear for example, will still have a lot of the same fitness tracking functionality as the previous trackers, but they have more controls on the screen and can even become a secondary phone. The downside is they do tend to be bulkier and more expensive.,
Just keep in mind:

If you don't need the EKG feature on this year's Series 4, the Apple Watch Series 3 may be the perfect fit. It has most of the same features as the newer model, but for a lot less. And it still keeps track of your ticker by alerting you if your heart rate is abnormally high or low. Read CNET's review
