Get this Apple Watch alternative for under $60 at Amazon

Smartwatches are a great way to check the time, send messages, and get health information while keeping your phone in your pocket. The Amazfit Bip U Pro, a much more affordable alternative to the Apple Watch, is on sale for $56.99 on Amazon, down from $69.99. Soon the summer heat will break, but you won’t, and an Amazfit lets you keep up with your continuous fall workout.

We’ve reviewed the Bip U Pro before and praised it for its accurate recording of fitness metrics. A voice assistant and GPS are built in, meaning you can ask Alexa for the best running routes and take them quickly. Over 60 sport modes help you exercise at your athletic level, from novice to marathon marvel, and health tracking lets you collect heart rate, blood oxygen levels, stress, quality of sleep, etc. The watch is as light as a feather at 31 grams, but its smarts sting like a bee – you can even control your smartphone camera from it. And, 9-day battery life means it doesn’t stop to rest, just like you do on a three-mile run.

If you’re not looking for a smartwatch but want a dedicated fitness tracker with long battery life, the Amazfit Band 7 – which we review in depth, alongside the T-Rex 2, then check back in month ahead – lasts 18 days on a single charge and includes double the number of sport modes. It’s also water resistant up to 50 meters, can read heart rate, blood oxygen, and stress levels simultaneously with just one click, and is currently $44.99 (with a discount coupon of $5 clicked).

Don’t spend too much time debating this deal – some of these smartwatches will be back to their retail price when the clock strikes midnight.
