Celebrate May the Fourth in style with these deeply discounted Star Wars-branded Garmin wearables
As hardcore fans of one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time are well aware, this date has been selected (quite randomly if I might add) to celebrate the Star Wars universe, with both official and unofficial events organized every year in honor of a long history spanning more than four decades, during which the incredibly popular movie series was repeatedly rebooted, spun off, and expanded to the small screen.
While the ongoing public health crisis caused by COVID-19 is making physical gatherings in commemoration of Star Wars Day significantly trickier and less fun than usual (although the masks are nothing new), you can still show your dedication to the Force (or the dark side) by purchasing some cool new merchandise online.
Curiously enough, there aren't that many mainstream Star Wars-branded gadgets we can think of, but several such devices are currently on sale at interesting discounts. Amazon is charging $100 less than usual for a feature-packed Garmin Legacy Saga smartwatch in your choice of two very special designs, while the kid-friendly Garmin Vivofit Jr 2 activity tracker can be had at a much smaller but still notable $20 discount in two Star Wars-honoring editions of its own.
Normally priced at $399.99, the Garmin Legacy has everything from a built-in heart rate monitor to standalone GPS connectivity, wrist payment support, water resistance, on-board storage for phone-free music listening, advanced sleep tracking, and a state-of-the-art pulse ox sensor to keep an eye on your blood oxygen saturation going for it. Of course, the key selling points of the Darth Vader and Rey-inspired variants are the custom designs including famous quotes engraved on the smartwatch's back, as well as special colors and accents.
You should also keep in mind the Rey model is a little smaller and lighter than its Darth Vader cousin, which results in a slightly lower battery life rating of... 7 days (compared to 8 days).
As far as the Vivofit Jr 2 is concerned, you can probably imagine the fitness band doesn't exactly shine in terms of specs and features, nonetheless looking destined to capture the attention of the youngest Star Wars fans out there with snazzy dark and light side designs in red and bright orange respectively, as well as fun little adventures they can unlock by moving around and staying active. May the Fourth be with you all!
