Calling all savvy shoppers: we’ve officially entered the final few hours of Amazon Prime Day 2022, with offers running until midnight tonight only. And as we’ve suspected, this year’s event has proven to be a big one.
The online giant kicked off its pre-Prime Day deals earlier than ever, and yesterday’s offerings didn’t disappoint either. The retailer slashed 37 per cent off this Renpho massage gun, £45 off the Fitbit inspire 2, and up to 50 per cent off Garmin smart watches. With offers like that, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for us today.

And it’s not just the fit kit that’s had a price slashing. Home appliances, tech, laptops, alcohol (the list goes on) have all been added to the online bargain bucket, and we’re keeping track of the best deals as they drop over on our live blog too.
The best fitness Prime Day deals 2022
Fitbit versa 3 health & fitness smartwatch: Was £199.99, now £113.05, Amazon.co.uk
One of the best Fitbits you can buy, the Fitbit versa 3 has just reached its lowest ever price in the Prime Day sale. We rated this wearable for its all-round performance, which makes it suitable for people of every fitness level, from marathon runners to the occasional pilates class. Built-in GPS and on-device storage for Spotify tracks and podcasts means you can leave your phone behind and still get clean Strava data, while the six day battery life and 24/7 heart rate tracking allows you to see a picture of your overall health trends.
Garmin forerunner 245 running watch, slate: Was £249.99, now £139.99, Amazon.co.uk
Another great discount on a Garmin watch, the forerunner 245 model is close to half price with a 44 per cent discount. And, being big fans of the brand, we will be running (excuse the pun) to the checkout with this one.
Reviewing a very similar, yet more music-focused model in our best Garmin watch round-up, our reviewer shared some great highlights of this workout watch. “Put simply, this lightweight watch includes pretty much everything you need as a runner. Accurate GPS tracking means you know your distance and speed, while your heart rate is measured from your wrist so you know how hard you’ve pushed.” You won’t be able to sync your Spotify playlists to the regular 245 however, but we don’t think you’ll mind when you consider you’re saving £110.
Released in late 2021, the Fitbit charge 5 is the latest in the company’s charge range. It features a built-in GPS, a heart rate monitor, automatic activity tracking, 20 exercise modes and a 7-day battery life, as well as an EDA sensor and an ECG app. You’ve also got various wellness-focused features, including a daily readiness score.
In our review of the fitness tracker, our writer said, “It analyses your data – from your sleep patterns to your heart rate – to tell you if your body is in tip-top condition for a workout, or if you’d be better taking a break.” It’s an intuitive piece of kit that’s well worth your cash – especially as it currently has 45 per cent off.
Renpho mini massage gun: Was £69.99, now £48.99, Amazon.co.uk
Renpho is known to be a budget-friendly brand when it comes to at-home muscle massaging. At least, we certainly think so, as its C3 model was named best entry-level device in our round-up of the best massage guns. And when we spotted this 30 per cent saving on a mini-model we just had to share the news.
With five adjustable speed levels for tailored pummelling, four changeable heads and an easy to charge, type-C charging port, this portable-sized machine seems like a great option to soothe sore muscles on-the-go.
Fitbit inspire 2 health and fitness tracker: Was £89.99, now £42.74, Amazon.co.uk
Take your fitness regime up a gear with this Fitbit tracker, which is currently reduced by a sizeable 50 per cent. The sleek-looking smartwatch is available in rose, white and black, and we particularly like this summery pink pastel shade. It comes with a free one-year Fitbit premium trial, so you can make the most of personalised stats, as well as keeping an eye on your heart rate, activity goals and sleep stages. A similar model was rated best overall in our round-up of the best fitness trackers with our tester praising the “lightweight, durable and sophisticated” piece of tech.
Nordictrack commercial S15i exercise bike: Was £1,799, now £889, Amazon.co.uk
Looking for a deal on home fitness equipment? While it’s still quite an investment, this exercise bike from Nordictrack now has 51 per cent slashed off its original price. It has 22 resistance levels to help personalise your workout, and you get a 30-day iFIT membership included, which gives you access to live, studio and global workouts.We didn’t try this bike, but our reviewer tested a different model from the brand that was a bit more budget-friendly. However, with the current discount, the commercial S15i actually comes quite close.
Amazfit bip U pro smart watch with Alexa built-in: Was £59, now £41.30, Amazon.co.uk
Up your fitness game this summer and beyond with Amazfit’s piece of tech – now reduced by 30 per cent. The smartwatch boasts built-in Alexa, a GPS, more than 60 sports modes, waterproof casing, a heart rate monitor and plenty more. Touted to be lightweight with a crisp touch screen, it’s ideal for tracking progress on the go and meeting your fitness goals.
Another Amazfit sports wearable earned a spot in our round-up of thebest fitness trackers with our tester praising it as a “charming and incredibly cheap watch that offers all the basic fitness tracking features many of us need. We love it.”
Nike women’s air zoom pegasus 38 sneaker: Was £101.56, now £73, Amazon.co.uk
Those looking for stability, cushioning and comfort in their running shoes should look no further than Nike’s top rated pegasus 38 trainers. Taking the top spot in our round-up of the best Nike running shoes, our tester praised the pegasus 38 as a “great value, trusty, daily shoe for everyone and anyone.” They also highlighted the subtle upgrades to the previous model, including more wiggle room in the toe box and a new individual midfoot webbing system. “From easy to tempo runs and speed sessions to races, the pegasus 38 is designed to handle everything.” Now, you can save just under 30 per cent on selected sizes on the runners for Prime Day.
We’ve already been spoiled for choice this year with savings across a huge range of fitness watches, and now Amazon has slashed the price of the Huawei band 6. We loved this device and, after giving it a thorough testing, thought it was the perfect choice “for those who want to take an active interest in their health and fitness.” Our reviewer said that “its core functions of heart rate, sleep, and step tracking are as accurate as can be expected at this price range, while its activity tracking features mean you won’t outgrow the smart band if you start to add more vigorous exercising into your daily routine.” So, if that sounds like you, then happy shopping.
New Balance women’s road running trainers: Was £60, now £30, Amazon.co.uk
Ok, so it’s a little too hot to even think about running right now, but it’s Amazon Prime Day, so if you’re looking to get your jog on in the near future, now is the time to invest in some proper trainers. And right now, this pair from New Balance are on sale for £30 in selected sizes – that’s a saving of 50 per cent.
We’re already big fans of New Balance trainers here at IndyBest, in fact we crowned its fresh foam pair the best for marathon running in our round-up of best women’s running shoes. Our reviewer described them as “extremely comfortable for long runs”, so while this pair on offer aren’t exactly the same, we reckon the comfort will still be pretty spot on.
NordicTrack T series treadmill: Was £799, now £599, Amazon.co.uk
Save a whopping £200 on NordicTrack’s treadmill this Prime Day. It features a smart, Bluetooth enabled display that gives you access to a range of live and studio workouts to take your exercise to the next level. These come as part of the iFIT membership, which you’ll get for 30 days as part of this offer. Boasting quick incline control, this treadmill will auto adjust to the speed and incline that your trainer iFIT requires, emulating a real-life gym experience. Snap up this deal while it’s still in stock.
Osprey farpoint 40 outdoor and trekking rucksack: Was £120, now £79, Amazon.co.uk
We’re huge fans of Osprey backpacks here at IndyBest, adding two models from the brand to our best travel backpack round-up and an adapted version of this model to our best backpack with wheels review. This exact version doesn’t come with wheels, but with a huge 40l capacity, stowable and adjustable shoulder and hip straps, numerous compartments and grab handles for easy packing, it’s sure to see you through many a trek with ease. In the colour black, this rucksack will give you a saving of nearly 60 per cent.
Garmin venu Sq GPS smartwatch: Was £179.99, now £99.99, Amazon.co.uk
With a huge saving of 44 per cent, this Garmin watch deal has definitely caught our eye. The brand is known to be a premium option within the sports watch space, and with all of its handy extras – GPS, stress level monitoring and 20 preloaded sports apps, to name but a few – it’s easy to see why. We haven’t tested the venu sq for ourselves just yet, but a similar model, the Garmin venu 2 plus, was named best for overall fitness and wellness in our running watch round-up. They both have the same body battery measurement – a feature our tester raved about, praising its “power and ability to learn more about your body, what it needs and when” – so we feel fairly confident in saying that if you’re in the market for a new smartwatch this one won’t disappoint.
Speedo unisex aquapulse pro swimming goggles: Was £30, now £17.99, Amazon.co.uk
Ready to take a dip? Salty ocean water or chlorine from the pool can take a toll on our eyes, but a good pair of swimming goggles can go a long way to protecting our peepers. This pair from Speedo, which made it into our best swimming goggles round-up, currently has 40 per cent off.
Our reviewer wasn’t disappointed when testing a similar pair of goggles from the brand: “We found these were great all-rounders, performing the same in both the pool and outside. The wide-vision lenses meant we could see everything, and the double silicone head strap was easy to adjust.”
If you love working out at home but don’t have the space for a full gym set up, then a step is an absolute must. This one from Reebok is loved by countless fitness fanatics because of how easy it is to use and store. There are three heights to choose between – 15cm, 20cm or 25cm – and this can be easily adjusted depending on how you choose to assemble your step before use.
The bubble texture on the top panel provides extra grip throughout your workout, so whether you decide to use it as a step for cardio, a bench for weights or as an extra challenge for lunge sets, you’ll be less likely to slide around.
There’s no time like the present if you’re looking to expand your gym equipment because this Reebok step is currently going for over 50 per cent off on Amazon.
Toplus yoga mat with carry straps: Was £30.99, now £19.99, Amazon.co.uk
If you’re getting back on your yoga flex for summer, you’re going to need the right mat. And Toplus is offering up 35 per cent off this one right now. This deal is only available in the colour “glamour purple”, so keep an eye out if you’re keen for another colour. The mat is 183cm x 61cm with a 0.6cm thickness, so you can feel supported as you stretch, and it claims to be easy to carry due to its lightness and strap. It’s also made from eco friendly material (think no latex, no PVC and no harmful chemicals).
Dig Sport inflatable stand up paddle board: Was £299.99, now £201.99, Amazon.co.uk
A paddle board may not be topping your list when searching for savings on sports goods, but if you are on the market for floating fitness bits, then this may pique your interest. With a saving of 33 per cent, the set includes an inflatable board, paddles, a pump and a handy backpack to store it. There’s a whole range of colours to choose from too. Be sure to take a look at our best paddle board round-up for more inspiration.
Salomon sensibelt hydration belt with 600ml water bottle: Was £40, now £28, Amazon.co.uk
With the rising temperatures of summer, it’s more important than ever to stay hydrated during your workout. This can be especially tricky when you’re off on longer runs, as you unfortunately still can’t bank on a water fountain everywhere. That’s where this handy hydration belt comes in.
Our reviewer had nothing but kind words for the brand in our best hydration pack round-up. Wear it as a waistband or tie it across your shoulder, whichever feels most comfortable, and it’ll hold a 600ml water bottle and has a storage compartment for keys, phone as well as other essentials.
Giro unisex fixture cycling helmet: Was £49.99, now £27.49, Amazon.co.uk
If the Tour de France has you pumped for more bike rides, it’s worth investing in a helmet – after all, safety comes first. This sleek, matte black model has quick-dry padding, which can come in handy after a strenuous commute or a long, tricky dirt road trail. Its visor is removable too, so you can wear as you like. Another helmet from the brand came out on top in our best cycling helmets round-up, so with this 30 per cent discount it’s worth snapping up.
Merrell women’s Nova 2 walking shoe: Was £125, now £52.99, Amazon.co.uk
With more than £50 off the RRP (in certain sizes), these Merrell walking shoes look to be a great investment. Whether you’re tackling tough ground on a hike or simply taking the dog for a walk, the shoes claim to be breathable, cushioned and lightweight. The faux-leather outer is complete with a rubber sole, lace-up closure and a sleek orange, black and grey finish. A similar pair of Merrell walking shoes earned a spot in our round-up of the best women’s hiking shoes so you’re in safe hands with the outdoor brand.
FitBeast 2-in-1 foam rollers: Was £37.99, now £15.19, Amazon.co.uk
Most of us know recovery is an essential part of exercise, which is why we’re on the look out for deals on massage guns, foam rollers and other aids to help relieve post-work out muscle aches. Ahead of Prime Day, Amazon slashed 60 per cent off this set from FitBeast. It includes two foam rollers and two massage balls which the brand claims help with effective pain relief and will reduce tension respectively.
JX Fitness power tower adjustable dip station: Was £159.99, now £114.95, Amazon.co.uk
The power tower is perfect for a full-body workout, allowing you to target all areas on one simple machine with the option for pull-ups, push-ups and various abs exercises. As it can hold up to 120kg, you can either rely on body weight alone or use a weight belt (not included) to add some extra kilos. With a discount of over 40 per cent, it’s a good time to start building towards those unassisted pull-ups. We’re no stranger to the brand either, as it featured in our round-up of the best pull-up bars, so you can definitely trust its credentials.
Folding mini pedal exercise bike: Was £71.99, now £39.99, Amazon.co.uk
If you’re coming back from injury and can only manage some light exercise or if you try and get more movement in, a mini pedal exercise bike can help. It’s small enough to fit underneath your desk, so you can keep moving while you work, or you can put it in front of the sofa and pedal away during TV time. It has a little LCD screen, telling you your rotations per minute, calories burned and time and has adjustable speed levels too. It’s nothing too fancy, but an easy way to get the legs moving for those stuck behind a desk all day.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?
The wait for the two-day shopping extravaganza is finally over – Prime day officially kicked off yesterday on 12 July, and carries through until 23:59 tonight, 13 July.
The event usually falls on a Monday, so this is an unusual move for Amazon. All those extra savvy shoppers out there may have spotted the retailer’s early Prime Day deals which started dropped on 21 June and saw discounts of up to 50 per cent off – and you would better believe that we were across all the latest and greatest.
Amazon is also rumoured to host a second Prime Day event in October. We’re yet to find out if this “Prime Fall Deal Event” will actually happen, but as you’re shopping guide experts we’ll keep you posted on any developments.
Do you need Amazon Prime to buy Prime Day deals?
In short, yes, Amazon Prime Day is only available to those who pay for Prime membership. But, there is a cheeky way around this…
Amazon Prime membership costs £7.99 a month, or £79 for a full year – which, if you ask us isn’t bad at all when considering that gives you access to free next day delivery, Prime Video, Prime Reading, Amazon music and even Deliveroo plus.
But, any true bargain-hunters will know you can sign up for a free 30-day Prime trial once a year to reap the rewards of Prime Day for free. You do have to input your card details though, so be sure to cancel your trial before the end of the time period to ensure you aren’t charged.
