Amazon Prime Day isn't just for us grown-ups - there are plenty of kids deals to take advantage of too!
Children's smartwatches are playful but also insightful, giving kids the chance to realize that their movement can impact their overall health. Garmin's Vivofit Jr. 3 watch was only released in March this year, but its already proved popular - with kids using the watch to track sleep, step count and overall activity.
Now the watch is in the Amazon Prime Day sale, with $40 off its usual price. Selected styles are now just $49.99, compared to $79.99 - a discount of almost 40%!
We saw the offer on colors including Blue Stars, Digi Camo and Lilac Flower, whilst special edition styles - including the Iron Man, Black Panther and Disney Princess models - have $30 off, ringing in at $59.99 - still a saving of 25%.

The latest new Garmin Vivo Jr. is perfect for children four and above, giving them the chance to track their activity as they play and exercise. Whether they are running around with friends or swimming they can use the smartwatch to see how much they've moved that day. The parent-controlled app also gives you the ability to set them chores and rewards. While they also get rewards if they reach active goal minutes - with quizzes and games.
Why get this great deal?
You'll be on your kid's good side for months if you bag them this treat. The watch connects to an iPhone and Android by Bluetooth, while it also has an ICE (in case of emergency) feature - which will help keep your worrying at bay.
Sarah is a freelance journalist who writes about fitness and wellbeing for the BBC, Woman&Home and Tech Radar. During lockdown she found her love of running outside again and now attempts to run around 50 miles a month. When it comes to other fitness, she loves a sweaty cardio session – although since she’s been working out from home she’s sure her downstairs neighbors aren’t too happy about it. She also loves to challenge herself - and has signed up to do hiking holidays, intense bootcamps and last year she went on her dream activity holiday: paddle boarding around deserted islands in Croatia. On her rest days, she loves to recover with a simple yoga flow session – the perfect antidote to her active fitness schedule.
