Will we see Fitbit Iconic Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals in 2018
Fitbit is a relatively new company that specializes in fitness trackers and wearable technology. One of their more popular watches is the Fitbit Iconic, and we think it is worth keeping an eye on this Black Friday. This Smartwatch is designed to accurately track health data while the user is wearing it. Our price team has done a full analysis for potential Fitbit Iconic Black Friday deals and have seen some interesting trends over the past year.
When the watch was first released into the market, it came in at a relatively high price. The watch then saw a discount of about 30% just before Black Friday in 2017. Throughout the year, as can be seen, by the graph below, the Fitbit Iconic saw large fluctuations on the watch. There were regular sales and discounts on the watch of 15-25% which would last a short period of time before the watch would return to normal price. Our price team has deducted from this data that there could be a good chance of Fitbit Iconic Black Friday discounts, as the watch is put onto sale regularly and is now over a year old.
We can not be sure until Black Friday on how much exactly, but be sure to check back here as we get closer to the day. Our price team will be adding data and updating the price trackers to see if there will be potential discounts.
What exactly is the Fitbit Iconic?
The Fitbit Iconic is their first ever full smartwatch and their flagship model. Described as a Fitness watch it is designed to track health data for fitness junkies and normal fitness conscious people alike. Its nice interface and features are designed to make the user experience an easy one. Delivering health data in realtime at the touch of a button, as well as pairing with a smart app to tracker historical data so the user can see trends over long periods of time.
If you are in the market for a fitness watch, then this one may be just right for you. Especially as our price team anticipates potential Fitbit Iconic Black Friday deals in 2018.
The first thing that you may notice is the watches square screen, much like its competitor, the Apple Watch. Built from an aluminum frame, the watch is designed to be durable and light. As it is predominantly a fitness watch, to be used during exercise, this is very important as it will prevent the user from experiencing any discomfort during activity. It, however, is also designed to fit on the wrist so that it is comfortable right throughout the day.
The smartwatch can also be personalized and stylised with its interchangeable straps. Fitbit has built in a strap fastener system, that allows the user to choose from a range of straps. There are three different types, of sports, leather and classic straps. All of which come in a range of different colors.
If you get caught in the rain it will be no problem, as the watch is water resistant. Fitbit claim it has a water resistance rating of 50 meters, meaning that you can use it in the shower or even in the pool without having to worry about unwanted water getting in. The touchscreen is also made from Gorilla Glass, therefore making it strong and durable. These features make the watch great for the outdoors and use in a range of weather conditions.
The interface of the watch can be controlled by the touchscreen, as well as three buttons on the sides. One button on the left and two on the right can control the watch and its features which is a clever design as it can be difficult to use a touch screen during exercise.
An LCD screen delivers a great picture. More pixels and better brightness make the smartwatch standout, delivering up to 1000 nits. This means that its 1.42-inch screen has a brighter picture (inch for inch) than most LCD televisions and matches the resolution of the previous Apple Watch.
Being a fitness watch, the Fitbit Iconic has a great range of features to help the user perform better. The thing that stands out the most is its built-in GPS. This can be paired with a smartphone to track the location of where the user has been, distance traveled and speed. An integrated antenna aids connection, thus helping to provide more accurate data to the user.
Fitbit has designed a personal coach into this smartwatch, giving the user workouts guided by the watch. Also in combination with SmartTrack, the Fitbit Iconic will recognize whatever exercise you are doing and add it to your range of historical data.
A heart rate monitor on the underside of the watch gives the user access to real-time heart rate. Fitbit has also built in a SpO2 sensor, to give the user blood oxygen readings. This can give the user access to information to help improve their performance.
Fitbit has also included a range of other non-fitness features. The watch can pair with other compatible apps such as weather apps. There is also a wallet free payment system, real-time notifications for the phone it is paired with an easy music listening that can be paired with Bluetooth headphones.
Being a portable smartwatch, it is essential that there is sufficient battery. Fitbit has claimed that the watch should last on average 5 days on one charge, which is pretty good. Though we have not verified this ourselves and this will likely vary with usage!
Overall, the Fitbit Iconic is a great smartwatch for those wanting to track their health data. As we come closer to Black Friday our price analysis team will be updating this page. So be sure to check back here for any Fitbit Iconic Black Friday deal in 2018.
