Exercise isn’t everyone’s ideal way to pass time during lockdown, but if you enjoy working out and would like to keep tabs on how active you are, Best Buy has you covered with its latest deals on Garmin and Samsung activity trackers. For example, the Forerunner 235 GPS Running Watch by Garmin, a brand that features heavily in our guide to the world’s best fitness trackers, is currently on sale at Best Buy for $149.99. That’s a saving of $20 and a juicy $100 off Garmin’s RRP of $249.99.
The Samsung Galaxy Fit Activity Tracker is also on sale at Best Buy for $79.99, instead of the retailer’s usual price of $99.99. While the Garmin tracker is much more dedicated to running – whether you’re trail running or pounding one of the best treadmills – the Samsung fitness tracker is ideal for monitoring over 90 different workouts (when used with the companion app).
If you’re wondering how to workout at home when you don’t have much free time, a fitness tracker can take all those minutes spent walking up and down the stairs, or cleaning the house, and let you know how much you’ve moved during the day. You’ll be surprised at how quickly your daily activity levels add up.
And if you’re not currently so active yet want to be, a tracker could give you the nudge you need to move more. We'd also recommend checking out the best online fitness programs for working out at home.

If you want a cheap fitness tracker that also monitors all four stages of your sleep (and give you advice on how to improve it), Samsung’s Galaxy Fit is a steal at this price. Via the Samsung Health app it’s capable of monitoring over 90 different workouts, including yoga and weights, and is water-resistant, so fine to head out with you on a rainy walk.
