Deep discounts on Apple’s latest smartwatch can be found at Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Walmart with all four major retailers dropping the normally $399 smartwatch down to $320 for the GPS-only 40mm aluminum version. 

Those looking for the larger 44mm size should also be able to find $70 or more savings, with other discounts available for cellular and stainless steel styles.

The Galaxy Watch Active 2 is about 2 years old, but when Samsung added the long-awaited electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) and an update that delivered many of the same health features as the more expensive Galaxy Watch 3, we awarded it an Editors’ Choice as a good all around option for someone looking for a smartwatch compatible with Android and iOS. Though $175 isn’t an all-time low price, it’s far lower than usual at B&H; it’s nominally the same $199 as everywhere else, but a coupon applied when you add the gadget to your cart drops the price.
