Prime Big Deal Days FAQ

What is Prime Big Deal Days?

Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days is a Prime Day-like shopping event that's set to launch on October 10th at 3am EST and run through October 11th. The sale is guaranteed to feature record-breaking discounts on everything from tech and appliances to toys and furniture across the entire site. There will also be a number of flash deals and invite-only offers available throughout the event. The catch is that you'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to gain access to most of the deals, so if you haven't joined yet, now's a good time to sign up

A Prime membership typically costs around $14.99 per month, but Amazon is currently offering a free trial that'll give you a full month of the service without paying a dime. 

Should I buy a fitness tracker or smartwatch?

It all comes down to you, your budget, and how you plan to use your new device. As wearable technology advances, the distinction between smartwatches and fitness trackers is becoming increasingly blurred. Tech companies and smartwatch producers alike are introducing high-tech devices that are basically computers on your wrist, while even the simplest fitness trackers now have features like GPS and voice assistance. 

If you just want a device that will take your workouts to the next level, save some cash and buy a fitness tracker like the Fitbit Charge 5. If, on the other hand, you want something comprehensive that will unite all of your personal tech and help you manage every aspect of your life, then a smartwatch like the Galaxy Watch 5 is just what you need.
