If you’re looking to improve your health through regular exercise, it’s a good idea to start tracking your workouts to see how often (and how well) you’re working out. Using one of the best fitness trackers is an easy way to do this, and today you can buy the Samsung Galaxy Fit activity tracker for only $49.99 at Best Buy.
That’s a hefty $50 discount on the tracker’s usual price of $99.99 at the online retailer, and it’s also one of the best offers we’ve seen on health wearables ahead of Amazon Prime Day 2020. It’s one of the cheapest fitness trackers on sale right now, with only some of the very best Amazon Prime Day Fitbit deals coming close to its seriously low price.
The Galaxy Fit activity tracker uses an adjustable wristband design, and is relatively lightweight and comfy to wear. In terms of features and tracking, it’s a simpler affair compared to some of the models in our guide to the best smartwatch for health tracking.

You don’t have to spend loads to get a decent health band to track your steps and calories burned. The Galaxy Fit is compatible with Apple and Android devices, and offers 24/7 activity tracking without you having to lift a finger (except for exercising, of course). It’s water-resistant too, so you can wear it swimming or out on rainy day walks and runs.
The benefits of using the water-resistant Samsung Galaxy Fit include steps and distance tracking, sleep tracking, a week-long battery life and automatic tracking of specific exercises. The tracker, available in black and in white at Best Buy and other retailers, is no longer sold by Samsung, which is why you can now buy it for such a rock-bottom price (while stocks last).
There’s automatic workout tracking here too, depending on the type of exercise you’re doing. For example, if you’re running, whether that’s outside or indoors on one of the best treadmills, the Galaxy Fit instantly recognizes when you start running and will track your efforts.
It’s the same story when you’re doing cross-fit training on an elliptical machine, or when cycling outdoors or inside - take a look at our guide to the best exercise bikes for spin class workouts at home.
While the Samsung Galaxy Fit is a very basic fitness tracker, for less than $50, and considering how easily it pairs with both iOS and Android smartphones, you really can’t go wrong here.
