The answer to this question really depends on your own priorities. If you’re looking for a device to keep an eye on your overall health, then a heart rate sensor and good sleep tracking are likely to be important; if you want it to track your running or cycling, then you’ll also want to look out for strong GPS tracking; if you want to use it almost as a secondary smartphone, then good software and a well-stocked app store are important factors to look out for.
Apple is running its traditional Black Friday Shopping Event this year. This doesn’t really give you discounts as such, but it does reward purchases with an additional gift card – so at least you are getting something extra for your money. Other retailers will more likely chop money off Apple tech, likely last year’s versions, as you can see with the Apple Watch Series 7 deal listed above.
A fitness tracker is generally tightly focused on tracking your health and performance, so the best ones will provide you with lots of accurate data on your location and physical condition. The best smartwatches can often do this too, but they also feature greater connectivity and onboard apps so that you can use them as a smart companion.
