Originally $200, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is a great deal at $120.

I’m not sure why, but smartwatch deals are coming fast and furious right now. Fossil’s Wear OS-powered Gen 4 Explorist was down to $99 a couple weeks ago (it’s still available for $119), and Apple’s Watch Series 5 was briefly $100 off. Now we have this: For a limited time, and while supplies last, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is down to $119.99 — the lowest price on record.

That’s for the black model; you can also get it in rose gold for the same price. (Mother’s Day, anyone?) If Amazon runs out or you see a price jump, try Best Buy, which also has it for $119.99 and offers a few more color options as well.

The Galaxy Watch Active hit the scene about a year ago, and while it’s already been supplanted by the Active 2, it’s still a perfectly good wearable — especially at this price.

I haven’t used one myself, so I’ll direct you to Vanessa Hand Orellana’s Galaxy Watch Active review. She liked it a lot, though with a few small gripes. Remember, though, that the review was based on a $200 price tag.

The watch is compatible with both Android and iOS devices, though if you own an iPhone you’ll lose out on a few features.
