With so many incredible smartwatch deals this holiday shopping season, you can get a head start on your fitness goals for the new year by upgrading your smartwatch now. While we love the Apple Watch 9 -- especially for iPhone users -- we have also been really impressed with Google's Pixel Watch. It's a sleek, stylish way to get all the benefits of a fitness tracker along with all the other convenient features of a daily smartwatch.

Best of all, the first-generation Pixel Watch is over 40% off on Amazon right now, so you can get the advanced smartwatch at its lowest price yet.

With the recent launch of the Pixel Watch 2, the first-generation watch has dropped to almost half its price on Amazon. The retailer usually sells it for $350, but Amazon dropped the price on the Wi-Fi version of the first generation Pixel Watch to just $200. The retailer is also offering the Pixel Watch LTE for $250 (reduced from $400).

The stylish watch offers multisport tracking, a heart rate sensor and tons of sleep tracking features so you can better manage your fitness and your recovery with a single watch. In addition to tons of Fitbit-like features, the Pixel Watch also features Google Wallet so you can go for a run or hit the gym wallet-free, using your watch to pay for things instead. 

Other Google features, like Maps and calendar notifications, are integrated as well. So you can stay connected and productive on the go by using your watch to respond to texts, manage your email inbox and make calls.

While the first generation Pixel Watch doesn't offer the same stress management tools or improved heart rate sensor as the new Pixel Watch 2, it's still a great smartwatch with tons of useful health and fitness features. And it happens to be on deep discount.

  • Leave your wallet at home and pay for things with Google Wallet on your watch.
  • Get turn-by-turn directions with Google Maps on your watch.
  • The watch is waterproof down to 50 meters so you can swim or shower with it on.

Save $50 on the new Pixel Watch 2


The Pixel Watch 2 looks almost identical to its predecessor but comes with some exciting upgrades and new health and fitness features. Some of the biggest changes include an improved heart rate sensor that's up to 40% more accurate even during intense workouts, a skin temperature sensor and a continuous electrodermal activity (cEDA) sensor. Measuring changes in the electrical currents on the surface of your skin, the cEDA sensor helps the watch track your stress levels.

Beyond stress management, the new Pixel Watch 2 packs tons of new fitness tools. You can now do heart rate zone training with real-time feedback and coaching during your workout when you go above or below your target zone. You can also do pace training, with similar real-time alerts when you go above or below your target pace.

Right now, Amazon is offering the Wi-Fi version new Pixel Watch for just $295 (reduced from $ 350). The Pixel Watch 2 LTE is also on sale for $350 (reduced from $400).
