Amazon’s Prime Early Access sale ends at midnight on 12th October and we don’t think Amazon has any dramatic price drops in store. If you’ve not been convinced by the Fitbit deals, or Garmin deals, or treadmill deals, or exercise bike deals by now, you’re unlikely to be convinced by them at all. Which is fair enough! Not everyone needs a new device.
However there are discounts on items you might not have thought of looking for in the sale. I, for instance, need a new strap for my Garmin Fenix 6 Pro (highly recommended, and heavily discounted at the moment FYI) because the years and miles have worn through three notches. Lo and behold straps are included in Amazon’s collection of Garmin deals.
I’ve sifted through pages and pages of Prime Early Access deals to curate a selection of useful products which may need replacing or adding to the bits box (we all have one).
Sealskinz Waterproof Beanie:
£25 £16.99 on Amazon
Save £8.01 Winter is coming and the cold is one thing, but wet and cold is intolerable. Keep your head warm and dry outdoors with this beanie from Sealskinz, a great brand for waterproof accessories. Sealskinz gloves are included in Prime Early Access, but they’re a shade over our arbitrary limit of £20.
Buff R-Solid Reflective Neck Warmer:
£16.25 £13.81 on Amazon
Save £2.44 Buffs are the original gaiters and still the best. There are a ton of designs with various technical features (Merino, UPF50, etc) to choose between in the Buff Prime Early Access sale. I use mine while cycle commuting in the winter, and at the start of winter runs. I then wrap it round my wrist once I realise I've overdressed as usual.
Osprey Hydraulics Bite Valve:
£10 £7.49 on Amazon
Save £2.51 Osprey make fantastic backpacks for running, cycling and hiking (many of which are reduced in the Prime Early Access sale), and many come with reservoirs. If you happen to have one, how's your bite valve looking? Pretty grim I'd bet. Here’s a gentle nudge to replace it.
