Has anyone purchased a Fitbit smart watch on BF?  I think I am going to get one for my son this year.  Any info re where to look for the best deal or info about these watches in general is appreciated!

Get an idea of what features your son wants and that will help you pick the best on.  There are several on the market.

Fitbits are going to be the same price everywhere you shop. It's just going to be whatever perks the stores give away with it that will help you decide where to buy it. Some might give away a gift card with purchase, you could earn Kohl's Cash, etc. Fitbit just started selling smart watches this year (the Versa and Ionic) so it will be interesting to see what their Black Friday deals will be.

I got mine (for my husband) online BF thru Macy's in 2016. Pretty sure it was $50.00 off regular price. No gift cards with purchase, but, easy to get- they weren't sold out or backordered. I love Macy's!

BTW- our son and I have Apple watches, but my husband has no interest in the Apple watch-even though we're an "Apple" family. He loves his Fitbit. :)

Thanks all for the replies.  I'm getting excited now as the watch is the first 'official' item on my shopping list!

I bought the Fitbit One back in 2013 on Blk. Friday, as someone earlier mentioned they were all the same price no matter where you looked. You'll have to see what the stores offer you in return for purchasing the Fitbit from them. Back when I bought mine Walmart gave me a $25 gift card to use at a later date.

Some places offer warranties too but others like kohls don't so you may want to consider if you want the warranty

Check with your health provider. I am getting a free one for participating in a group exercise.

DW has Garmin Vivofit. Waterproof, and battery lasts about 14 months (and then replace the battery). It doesn't have tons of bells and whistles, but not having to charge it at all.

So far I've seen it listed at Target (no extras) and Kohls (Kohls cash).Same sales price. Picking up three this year - replacing my wife's HR with the Versa or Ionic (so far only at Kohls), my daughter's Charge 2 with either a 3 or Versa, and I'm getting a 3. Due to my work, I can't have a Bluetooth-enabled device with me, so no reason to get a watch, as I would have to wear an old-style watch anyway. Will have to wait until I retire in a few years to get a smart watch/tracker.


Just checked - Costco also has the Versa $50 off, which puts it at the same price as Target an Kolhs. The only thing you get extra at Costco is an extra band. Shopko has them too.
