Regardless of which watch you wear, there are plenty of great deals on super smartwatches for you during Prime Day 2021.
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?

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!

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.
