Best Black Friday Fitbit Deals 2021: What to Expect

Black Friday lands on November 26 this year, although with an increasing number of retailers kicking off their sales early in order to entice online shoppers, now’s as good of a time as any to start thinking about Black Friday Fitbit deals if you’re in the market for a new fitness tracker. Fitbit offers a nice range of wearables to fit just about any need and budget, and we expect plenty of them to be on sale among the 2021 Black Friday deals.

You have to be quick during these events even under normal circumstances, but with ongoing inventory and computer chip shortages, it’s not a bad idea to plan to do your holiday shopping early if you don’t want to miss out on any Fitbit Black Friday deals before they sell out. Let us give you an advantage: To help you get ready to shop, we’ve put together an in-depth guide that covers what to expect based on last year’s sales, along with some pointers on how (and where) to score the best Black Friday Fitbit deals that we’re likely to see this season.

Best Black Friday Fitbit deals we saw last year

Fitbit’s offerings range from simple and relatively inexpensive health-tracking wrist bands to full-fledged smartwatches, and just about all of them were on sale last year. However, there were a few noteworthy discounts from the 2020 Black Friday sales that are worth highlighting.

Perhaps the best of all of the previous Black Friday Fitbit deals was this discount on the Fitbit Charge 4. The Fitbit Charge 4 is a nice middle-of-the-road option for those looking for something more than a simple fitness tracker but who don’t need a full-featured (and naturally more expensive) smartwatch like the Fitbit Versa. The Charge 4 still has a lot to offer, though, with its OLED display, built-in GPS, and heart rate monitor. During last year’s Black Friday sales, it got a steep 33% discount of $50 that brought it in at just $100 — a great price for one of our favorite fitness trackers.

On the other hand, those who wanted a more smartwatch-like fitness tracker had a chance to save a nice chunk of change on the Fitbit Versa 3. The third-gen Fitbit Versa has a nice array of features and a full suite of fitness- and health-tracking functions including a heart rate monitor, although it wasn’t the best offer among all of the Fitbit Black Friday deals at only $30 off. Still, $200 isn’t a bad price for a feature-rich fitness tracker than scored a 9/10 in our Fitbit Versa 3 review.

Some other deals from the 2021 Black Friday Fitbit sales included discounts on last-gen models like the Fitbit Charge 3, as well as some nice price cuts on cheaper units like the Fitbit Alta and Fitbit Inspire. The kid-friendly Fitbit Ace 2, which would make a great holiday gift idea for young athletes, was also on sale for less than 50 bucks.

What Black Friday Fitbit deals we expect to see this year

For this year’s Black Friday Fitbit deals, we’ll be keeping a lookout for the same bargains we saw in 2020, but with some additions. We expect the Fitbit Charge 4 to go on sale again for at least a similar price ($100), and hopefully we’ll get a discount on the newer Fitbit Charge 5 as well. We’re also expecting to see an even bigger markdown on the Fitbit Versa 3 that should knock it below $200 this time around.

If you want an upgrade over the Fitbit Versa, then look for some Black Friday deals on the higher-end Fitbit smartwatches including the Fitbit Sense, which is the current flagship model of the brand’s lineup. You can learn more about what that tracker has to offer in our Fitbit Versa 3 vs. Fitbit Sense comparison that lays out the details and differences between these two top fitness wearables.

Of course, there will be plenty of Black Friday Fitbit deals for the cheaper models, too, if all you need is something simple for things like basic acti
