Samsung Galaxy Gear

Price: $150
Regular Price: $300
Engadget Score: 65
Buy: Best Buy

New model on the way? That could very well be the case. Best Buy has slashed the price of Samsung's Galaxy Gear by 50 percent as its Deal of the Day, but only in select colors. While the smartwatch didn't get much love from us during our review because it lacked compelling software and device compatibility, a $150 price drop definitely helps its case. If you're compelled to save cash rather than wait for the latest and greatest, you may want to take another look.

Fitbit Flex

Price: $90
Regular Price: $100
Engadget Score: 87
Buy: Amazon

We've been smitten with the Fitbit Flex since it was unveiled last spring due to its simple design and affordable price tag that puts it at the less expensive end of the fitness-tracking spectrum. Now, the wearable gets a modest $10 discount, making it a bit more attractive. See how the Flex stacks up against Fitbit's more recent release -- the Force -- using our Compare tool right here.

Jawbone Up (2012)

Price: $99
Regular Price: $129
Engadget Global Score: 78
Buy: BuyDig

Jawbone was out to redeem itself from the fiasco that surrounded the arrival of the original Up band, and it made major strides with the reworked 2012 model. One of our major gripes with the activity tracker was its $130 price, which is now seeing a $30 discount (a 90-day low). Of course, it doesn't feature the wireless syncing from the newer Up24, but Jawbone has been diligent to update its companion app that plays nice with the older model.
