Welcome to CHEAP, our series about things that are good, but most of all, cheap. CHEAP!

Smartwatches face a simple, important question: why? As cool as the tech is, why does anyone need one? Especially when many of the devices are so expensive. Well, we have a solution to part of that problem: here’s a whole load of smartwatch discounts.

Yes, that’s right, the Samsung Galaxy Watch range is currently on offer. This includes 10 percent off the new Galaxy Watch Active, making it a very reasonable $180, and the 46mm Galaxy Watch for under $300, saving you $50.

Let’s start with the Galaxy Watch Active. First off, here’s a photo:

Very fit-boy and fit-girl.

This rather fancy watch is, as the ‘Active’ moniker suggests, built for exercise. It has health-monitoring functions, sleep tracking capabilities, and can just generally help you keep on top of your fitness. It’s also lightweight, has NFC compatibility (meaning you can pay for stuff), and works with iOS and Android; still though, it’s worth noting you’ll get best experience using a Samsung phone, and therefore the latter operating system.

Best of all, the Galaxy Watch Active is currently only $179 – meaning if you want to dip your toes into the smartwatch market, it’s an ideal first step.

Next up, let’s have a look at the normal Galaxy Watch instead. Soak this in:

This is the 46mm in silver, just so you know.

This is the beefy momma of the Samsung Galaxy smartwatch range. It has many of the same features as the Active, but also a whole load more. For example, it supports wireless charging, has military-grade durability, and, well, looks a lot more stylish.

It also comes in two sizes (46mm and 42mm faces), meaning you can get a Galaxy Watch that fits you right. You can find more information about the models here. But, basically, if you’re an Android or Samsung user, this is your best choice.

To see the full gamut of offers on the Samsung Galaxy Watch range, head over here. Maybe today’s the day you find a reason to add a smartwatch into your device ecosystem.
