Black Friday hasn’t even started yet, but the sales have just begun. First on the list is Sam’s Club, who is preparing a one-day event next week in honor of Black Friday for customers who want to jump on the earliest deals. What’s in store (pun intended) for these early adopters? Discounts on Jawbone and Pebble wearables – specifically, the Jawbone UP2 fitness tracker and the Pebble Watch.
The Jawbone UP2 fitness tracker will come discounted to $69.98, with a $29.90 savings on the product (30%). The Pebble Watch (first-generation) will see a drop in price to $69.98, down some $24.56 from the current price (26%).
Along with those savings comes the question, “What am I getting in these discounted products?” The Jawbone UP2 fitness tracker features a medical-grade hypoallergenic TPU rubber band with anodized aluminum casing. The device itself is splash-proof, meaning that you can take it out for a few small water splashes here and there but no major swimming or diving activities allowed. It has a 38mAh battery, which Jawbone promises will last up to 10 days, and it can be charged via the proprietary USB charging cable for 60 minutes to go from “0” to “full.” Email and activity notifications have LED colors to distinguish them and Bluetooth 4.0 BLE helps you transfer the content from your wrist wearable to an Android smartphone or iPhone (iOS).
The Pebble Watch (first-generation) has dropped from its original price of $200+, but it is still one of the best smartwatches around. The Pebble original features an E-Ink display that guarantees 5-7 days of battery life, is water-resistant to 50 meters, and is cross-platform – meaning that you can the Pebble on either Android or iOS. If you’re thinking about switching operating systems for your next mobile device, the Pebble has you covered. Of course, the Jawbone UP2 does as well, but you’ll have to make the choice between the fitness activity tracker and the Pebble smartwatch.
Again, the Sam’s Club Black Friday one-day sale will take place next Saturday, November 14th. Whether you’re in-store or online, you’re sure to love the savings.
