Here's how you can get the brand-new Samsung Galaxy Watch Active at a $30 discount

Here's how you can get the brand-new Samsung Galaxy Watch Active at a $30 discount
There's already an awful lot to like about Samsung's recently unveiled Galaxy Watch Active, but although one of the key selling points of the fitness-centric smartwatch is a very reasonable $200 starting price, a number of cool deals on the "regular" Galaxy Watch, Gear S3, and Gear Sport have made it pretty difficult for bargain hunters to choose.

While most authorized US retailers continue to charge the full two Benjamins for the Galaxy Watch Active in an assortment of paint jobs, there's now also a simple way you can save a decent 30 bucks at a trustworthy seller. All you need to do is visit the official product page over at Rakuten and apply the promo code "SAVE15" to your order before checking out. Of course, this is not the only gadget available at a 15 percent discount for a limited time, but it's one of the most notable items on a sitewide sale.

After all, this is the first time we're seeing the Android and iOS-compatible smartwatch sold below its list price, although Samsung's pre-order deal, which bundled the timepiece with a complimentary wireless charging pad or battery pack, was certainly nothing to sneeze at either.

As long as you're willing to overlook the occasional catastrophic software glitch, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is essentially unrivaled at a marked-down price of $170 in terms of design, comfort, activity tracking functionality, and screen quality. While relatively small and lightweight all in all, the Tizen-powered smartwatch sports a beautiful 1.1-inch AMOLED display with 360 x 360 pixel resolution, as well as a decent battery, and a robust set of sensors and chips, including built-in GPS, a standalone heart rate monitor, and a still-dormant blood pressure scanner.

Granted, a rotating bezel would have made this bad boy even better, but you can't possibly expect to get it all in exchange for a measly 170 bucks.
