NerdWallet is here to help you win Black Friday, while leaving your budget intact. We spend the time, you save the money. Visit regularly for tips and announcements about the best holiday deals from your favorite retailers. Black Friday is Nov. 24.

Black Friday is full of deals on TVs, laptops, appliances, tools — and activity trackers.

Year after year, we’ve seen a wide variety of retailers discount Fitbit watches and wristbands on the day after Thanksgiving. And while you may be familiar with the fitness brand’s new Ionic watch, we expect some of the biggest Black Friday discounts this year will be on older models, like the Alta, Charge 2 and Blaze.

If you’re interested in a device that can monitor your steps and keep your training goals on track, you’ve come to the right place. We’re keeping tabs on Fitbit deals throughout the holiday season so you’ll know which Black Friday sales will save you money.

You’ll also want to brush up on your credit card’s return protection (if it has any), as this could extend the return life of your product.
