One of Fitbit's best wearable devices is on sale at a $50 discount at Verizon
While Fitbit has been making decent strides in challenging Apple for the title of the world's most successful smartwatch vendor, the company remains primarily known for its vast portfolio of affordable and feature-packed fitness bands.

After recently releasing three new devices priced between $70 and $100, we naturally expected a few older ones to quickly score some discounts, but while that hasn't happened yet on Fitbit's official website, Verizon is currently running a sweet deal on one of the company's most popular activity trackers. The Fitbit Charge 2 is no longer available directly from its manufacturer or third-party retailers like Best Buy, so this is probably a clearance sale on Big Red's part.

Normally priced at $129.99, the Android and iOS-compatible wearable device is now marked down to an irresistibly affordable $79.99 in both small and large sizes, with three color options to choose from, including black, plum, and teal. This cool $50 discount makes the Fitbit Charge 2 (temporarily) cheaper than the all-new Inspire HR and almost as affordable as the non-HR Fitbit Inspire variant.

It goes without saying the oldie comes with heart rate monitoring abilities of its own, as well as an unusually large OLED display (for an entry-level wearable), a splash-proof design, and up to a whopping 5 days of battery life between charges. While there's no built-in GPS functionality or NFC support for wrist payments, you certainly get a lot of bang for your 80 bucks, with all-day activity tracking features, sleep stages, and of course, all the smartphone notifications that matter to you. 

You may want to hurry and pull the trigger as soon as possible if you're in the market for a robust fitness band on a tight budget, because something tells us Verizon will run out of discounted inventory relatively quickly.
