Bestbuy has Garmin Vivosmart HR (all 3 colors) for $99.99, $50 off as part of their 50 year anniversary sale:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/promo...vosmart-hr

You can also use the $10 off $100 Visa Checkout offer at Best Buy to get a further $10 off. Dont need to add any filler, the pre-sales amount of $149 counts towards minimum $100 qualification - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/misc/...8300659335

I find the Garmin Vivosmart HR to be a better option than Fitbit Charge HR, having a bigger screen for more notifications and feature, and also being water-resistant to be able to be used in swimming as well.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I highly recommend this device compared to the previous vivosmart (although it's bigger on the wrist).

This one has a better screen (easier to read in sunlight, larger), heart rate, various modes for running/walking, weather, floors climbed and more.

This device gets almost a week of battery from one charge (which only takes like 30min or so).

Also, compared to fitbits like the charge/charge hr, the difference is night and day (one person thought my band was a fitbit since that's the "name brand" fitness tracker). This device has a larger touchscreen with usable features, is water resistant to 5atm (compared to fitbits "please don't get this wet" suggestion), and looks better (imo).

Ever since the screen on my vivoactive started to fade within 6 months of use I am little hesitant on garmin products and the amount they keep selling worries me that their products have quality issues.

Same thought here. My vivosmart screen started losing pixels after 6 months. Very hesitant to bother with Garmin again

They seemed to have fixed that on this one. I went through many vivosmart bands for the display issue. A shame as the vivosmart was a nice size and this one is a lot bulkier but doesn't have the display failures of the old vivosmart. I know a half dozen people that have this newer model and none of them have had any issues.

discontinued the old model because they could not resolve the display failures and if you call up they will upgrade you to the HR model for no charge if your within the warranty period. Garmin does stand behind their products really well. I went through 4 replacements and then to the HR model.

not sure if mentioned but you are better off buying this on eBay

eBay = $99.95
eBay $15 coupon ( CBACKTOSCHOOL ) = $84.95
eb8tes5% cash back as well = $4.24

Total = $80.71 with free shipping

Will it still have a warranty?

That's why the Visa Checkout $10 off wasn't applying to the $99.99 order - it needs to be at least an order of $100.

Found this as filler for $1.99 - thought it was fitting for this particular product: Insignia(TM) - Cleaning Kit for Smartwatch [bestbuy.com]
