The unofficial start of summer is just a few weeks out. For many, that means ditching the gym for the great outdoors. Whether you're training for you first 5K or just looking to spend more time under the sun, Best Buy is slashing the price of numerous fitness trackers during its latest sale.
For a limited time, Best Buy is taking up to $150 off Garmin devices and up to $50 off Fitbit devices. This is one of the biggest sales we've seen on fitness devices from any retailer. It's worth noting that Memorial Day sales will begin soon and you may be able to save a few bucks more come May 29, but the chances of these items being significantly cheaper are slim. That said, below are the best deals you can buy right now.
It's worth noting that no Apple Watches are on sale right now at Best Buy. However, we expect the retailer to discount multiple models in the coming days as we approach Memorial Day. (Make sure to check out our guide to this month's Best Buy Memorial Day sales for the season's top deals).
