Amazon currently has the Samsung Gear Sport on sale for just $229. That's about $70 off of its regular price of $299, and also marks the first discount since the holiday season last November/December. This makes it a great time to pick up the Samsung Gear Sport if you've been looking to pick up a new fitness tracker/smartwatch.
The Samsung Gear Sport was announced last fall by Samsung, as a slight upgrade to the Gear S3, but more focused on activity tracking. It is a smartwatch, powered by Tizen, but it also has a slew of activity tracking features as well. The Gear Sport is able to track your steps as per usual, but it can also track your workouts, calories burned and your sleep. So you can see how well you're sleeping or not sleeping. The Gear Sport can track all sorts of exercises, including swimming. Which is not a common thing among fitness trackers right now, but it is quickly becoming a popular feature. So those that like to go swimming can also track their swimming with the Gear Sport. That means that it is fully waterproof. There is also a heart rate sensor here, but it doesn't work when submerged in water, which makes sense, but that means the calorie count while swimming will be slightly off.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $99/year (or $49/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
