Prime Day Galaxy Watch deals: recap

Best Prime Day Galaxy Watch Deals
Fortunately for all of us, Amazon decided to host a second Prime Day this year as well, allowing Prime members to score huge savings on a plethora of devices, including Samsung's fancy and sleek-looking Galaxy Watches.

That's right, Samsung fans had quite a lot of opportunities in the form of sweet Prime Day Galaxy Watch deals to snatch a brand-new Galaxy Watch for way, way less than usual. And now that the sales event is over, it's time to see what was what and make a recap of what Amazon Prime Day in October brought to the table in terms of offers on Samsung's smartwatches.

The Good

The Bad

Being Samsung's latest and greatest, the Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Watch 6 Classic sadly didn't receive huge discounts during Amazon Prime Day. The Bluetooth version of the 40mm Galaxy Watch 6 was available with a $30 price cut, while the 47mm LTE variant of the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic was only $31 off.

The Good

  • Superb battery life
  • Titanium body + sapphire screen is a superb combo
  • Bright and legible OLED display
  • Great health and sleep monitoring
  • Good haptic feedback
  • Charges rather quickly

The Bad

  • 15.5mm real thickness means that it's bulkier than advertised
  • The rotating bezel is sadly gone
  • Ecosystem issues - some features are exclusive to Galaxy phones

Unlike the Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, which were discounted by just a little, the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro enjoyed some pretty sweet price cuts during Prime Day.

The Galaxy Watch for mountain climbers and outdoor aficionados, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, was available for up to $122 off its price. And those who didn't mind going for a preowned device were able to snatch a renewed 44mm Bluetooth Galaxy Watch 5 with an awesome $160 (52%) discount.

Now, the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic may be quite old, but they are still worth it, especially the Classic version, which received a huge amount of love during Amazon Prime Day. While the 40mm variant of the regular Galaxy Watch 4 was $50 off its price, the 46mm Galaxy Watch 4 Classic was discounted by a whopping $165 and was available for just $215.

Is Prime Day a good time to buy a Galaxy Watch?

It is definitely among the best times — Prime Day, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday are the sales events when electronics drop their prices as low as they can go for the current period. Various retailers join in the fierce competition, thus plenty of discounts are slapped over every price tag out there. Furthermore, as we saw, Galaxy Watches were available with crazy discounts during Prime Day in July and Prime Day in October.
