Boston, MA (PRUnderground) October 12th, 2017
Topic Reviews, an online technology magazine, have published their Black Friday 2017 deal predictions for Garmin gear. Their latest price analysis forecasts that the best deals on Garmin smartwatches will be on the bestselling Fenix 3 and Vivoactive HR.
The team at Topic Reviews combine information on previous years’ Black Friday discounts with live price data on Garmin products. Using these two methods of tracking price changes they have made predictions about the best Garmin Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals for 2017.
Mike Williams, head pricing analyst, has the following advice on finding the best Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals:
When looking for the best Black Friday & Cyber Monday discounts it’s important to compare prices and not get caught up in the hype surrounding doorbuster deals. The best method for identifying a good deal is to keep an eye on price changes during fall and compare this year’s deals with those of previous years. Our live price trackers make this easier for shoppers.
What’s on the menu then? The team predict that the majority of price drops on Garmin gear will be on their range of fitness smartwatches and activity trackers. In 2016 we saw a 33% price drop on the fenix 3. This year Topic Reviews are predicting price drops closer to 50% on the fenix 3 and reductions in the range of 25% on the newly released fenix 5 models. Released in mid 2017, the fenix 5 series are premium multi-sport watches. Normally Black Friday discounts on newly released Garmin gear are rare, but analysts at Topic Reviews point to the release of the Apple Watch Series 3 as an indication of increased competition in the premium smartwatch market. As for Vivoactive smartwatches, forecasters predict that the Vivoactive HR will see the biggest Black Friday reduction with an expected sales price of $140.
As well as Garmin gear, Topic Reviews provide live price tracking on lots of the biggest sports and technology brands. One of Garmin’s biggest rivals in the smartwatch sector is Fitbit. Their range of activity trackers are targeted more towards everyday use. You can read about their Black Friday Fitbit price predictions on the Topic Reviews website.
We’ll have to wait until closer to November 24 to find out precisely what Garmin will offer this Black Friday. The Topic Reviews team will be busy monitoring price changes in the mean time.
