If you've been waiting to purchase or upgrade your smartwatch but were waiting for a sale, well, have we got some amazing Prime Day smartwatch deals for you! Being an Android user means having open access to tons of devices like smartphones, tablets, and even wearables. So while the Apple Watch may be king over on iOS, we've got a ton of great options on our side of the fence as well.

Whether you prefer a rugged sports watch, a classic computer on your wrist, or a hybrid watch that has a more traditional look and feel, we've got you covered. Smartwatches from well-known companies like Fossil, Garmin, Samsung, and Fitbit are sure to catch your eye but don't overlook some lesser-known players like Mobvoi and Amazfit. Regardless of which watch you wear, there are plenty of great deals on super smartwatches for you during Prime Day 2021.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is one of the best Android smartwatches you can buy on Prime Day, thanks to its advanced health features, fitness tracking, great design, and battery life. It offers much of what you're looking for in a smartwatch and then some. Today's Prime Day deal saves you more than $100 off its regular price, but act now before time runs out.

Best Wear OS smartwatch deals

What began as Google's first smartwatch platform back in 2014 as Android Wear has morphed over the years into what we now know as Wear OS. Love it or hate it, Wear OS is the wearable platform influenced, directed, and developed by Google itself. Numerous manufacturers have developed smartwatches on the platform, including Motorola, Mobvoi (TicWatch), and the Fossil Group, which markets Wear OS watches under its Fossil, Michael Kors, Skagen, Kate Spade, and other sub-brands.

Many claim that Wear OS watches are not as powerful or focused as other smartwatches like the Apple Watch or fitness-focused devices from Garmin and Fitbit, but that will soon change with the next big version of Wear OS from Samsung and Google. As with Android phones, Wear OS watches come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and colors and have varying styles and sophistication levels. Now that Prime Day is here, it's a good time to consider picking up a Wear OS smartwatch. Which one looks the best to you?

Best Samsung Galaxy smartwatch deals

Like its gorgeous Galaxy smartphones, Samsung produces several high-quality smartwatches under the Galaxy name. These wearables are always among the most searched for on Android Central, and whenever we review a new one, that article always gets a ton of views from our readers.

Even though it only came out not even a year ago, the highly-acclaimed Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and its Titanium variant is already being discounted on Amazon as is the older but still great Galaxy Watch Active 2. The latter has a fantastic Prime Day deal that you don't want to miss out on since it's still our top pick as the best Android smartwatch.

Best Fitbit smartwatch deals

When you think of a fitness watch, chances are the name Fitbit is one of the first brands that come to mind. Of course, the company has been making some of the most best fitness trackers for over a decade, but you may be surprised to learn that it also makes some pretty great smart fitness watches too.

The Fitbit Sense is one of the company's best and latest smartwatches, but we already see some stellar deals on this device and more, which you can find below. You can also check out some of the company's fitness trackers, which are also getting some great Prime Day discounts!

Best Garmin smartwatch deals

Fitbit may be one of the most popular fitness brands, but elite athletes tend to trust Garmin with their health, GPS, and exercise data more than any other brand. The company has a diverse range of smart fitness watches, from basic running watches to fully-featured navigational devices.

If you want an excellent running watch, you can't go wrong with the Vivomove/Vivoactive lineups, which are getting some great discounts right now. The Venu is our pick for the best overall smartwatch deal, even though its newer successor is already available, and we also really like the rugged Instinct for cross country treks.

Best Amazfit smartwatch deals

If none of the Android smartwatches listed above strike your fancy, or if you like seeking out hidden gems, then perhaps these wearables are more your style. Amazfit somehow manages to crank our affordable smartwatch after affordable smartwatch, with different form factors and sizes that remind me of old Pebble watches or even some of the more hardcore Garmin tactical editions.

Best hybrid smartwatch deals

If you're not interested in a traditional smartwatch, you might want to consider a hybrid smartwatch instead. You get all the same health and fitness features, but in a classic watch design and without the confusing menus and operating systems that you'd find on other devices. Withings makes some of the best hybrid smartwatches around, and you can get them at great prices on Prime Day.

Which Android smartwatch should you buy?

There is no shortage of fantastic Android smartwatches to choose from that will work well with the best Android phones. So you can get a fitness-focused watch, something that looks like a traditional timepiece, or something to relay notifications and control your smart home devices through.

Our overall pick for the best Prime Day Android smartwatch deal is the Fitbit Sense, in no small part because it's one of the newest smartwatches from Fitbit and is already seeing a great discount for Prime Day. It has a premium square design, not unlike the Apple Watch, and it has the best of Fitbit's fitness features, as well as a gorgeous screen for reading and responding to your most important notifications.

We already mentioned the excellent Fitbit Sense, but we're also excited to see some Prime Day discounts on the Garmin Vivoactive, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2. Don't sleep on Mobvoi/TicWatch deals either; the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS is one of the best Wear OS smartwatches on the market and is getting a great discount where you can find it for under $200!

Some other notable discounts include the Galaxy Watch 3 Titanium, which is nearly half off its original price, and the Garmin fenix 6 is getting a huge $300 discount!

  • Why would anyone buy an Android Smartwatch right now? Especially in the middle of a transitional period with the reboot to Wear. Prime Day or no Prime Day, it makes no sense getting an existing Wear OS watch now.
