Staying fit and healthy is as exciting as snagging exclusive discounts on fitness gear, sporting goods, videos, books and more. And with news of Amazon Prime Day 2020 in Australia possibly happening this October, health buffs and bargain hunters are all pumped up! Check out these health and fitness items we expect on the biggest sale event of the year (and our wish lists!).
Amazon Prime Day 2020: Anticipated Health and Fitness Deals
With most of us staying at home and observing health protocols, online shopping is in demand more than ever. Shopping at reduced prices for huge savings is also a current trend. And so, it’s no surprise that most of us are reserving our big purchases for annual deal events like the Amazon Prime Day 2020.
American retailer Amazon initiated Prime Day in the United States back in 2015 to celebrate its 20th anniversary and offer a digital version of the infamous Black Friday sale. Since it started, several countries have joined in the shopping fun, including Australia. Our first Amazon Prime Day was in 2018. And while it’s supposed to be a one-day deal event, last year, it lasted for almost three days. And we, Aussies, are not complaining!
We’re hoping Amazon Prime Day 2020 pushes through this October. But check back on this page for the latest deals and exact date of the biggest sale event. In the meantime, while we’re patiently anticipating, here are a few fitness deals online we expect to see and add to our carts:
Headphones were among the top 10 internal searches made in Australia on Amazon Prime Day 2019, according to Hitwise. So, we can expect great discounts for wireless headphones, over-ear models or gaming headsets for 2020. Some brands to watch out for are Apple, Bose, Jabra, Beats and Sony, which all offered discounts on the previous years.
The Apple AirPods Pro, for instance, is perfect for a noise-free outdoor jog or run. Plus, the wireless charging case will keep it powered all day. The Jabra Elite Active 45e sports headphones, on the other hand, has its wires out of the way, so you can safely do heavy exercises. But, if over-ear headphones are your thing, noise-cancelling Bose 700 or Bluetooth-powered Sennheiser PXC 550-II is something to consider. The Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphone is also perfect for office work and home workout use.
2. Amazon-branded products
Amazon regularly offers discounts on its smart home devices, so we’re looking forward to more savings for Amazon Prime Day 2020. In particular, Alexa-enabled smart speakers, like Amazon Echo Plus and Amazon Echo Dot, were half their original prices on last year’s Prime Day in Australia. So, if you’ve been itching to get a Fire tablet for daily workout, a Kindle e-Reader for healthy recipes or a Fire TV stick for fitness videos, Prime Day is the ideal time.
3. Smartwatches or Bluetooth fitness trackers
Wrist-based devices are also one of the health and fitness deals to expect during the sales event. One possible offer to be excited about is the Apple Watch Series, which is arguably the best smartwatch range to buy at the moment. However, for Android users, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is equally a good buy. Its heart rate monitor, ECG feature and a built-in running coach should set our hearts aflutter! Fitbit Charge and Garmin watches are also covetable items. Garmin, in particular, was recognised for offering the best deals on tracking systems for Australia’s Amazon Prime Day in 2019, including its Garmin Forerunner 235 and Garmin Forerunner 735XT.

4. Kitchen appliances
A fitness regimen is not complete without a balanced diet, after all. And Amazon Prime Day 2020 may be the ideal time to get the biggest deals on Philips air fryers, KitchenAid stand mixers or Instant Pot Duo multicookers. The Philips Premium Collection All-in-One Cooker, for instance, was at $194 from its original $300 value. With its set-and-forget system, you can let it do the cooking for you while you’re busy doing yoga. And let’s not forget about making those healthy smoothies and protein shakes after a good workout. Amazon Prime Day may be your chance to get a heavy-duty Vitamix blender for your benchtop!
5. Sportswear, shoes and training equipment
Select Adidas clothing and shoes had up to 50% off their full prices last year, so make sure to start listing down your top picks. And if you’re thinking of ramping up your home gym, Amazon Prime Day 2020 in Australia is likely to have great discounts on exercise balls, kettlebell weights, dumb-bells and cardio machines, too. You might want to check Prime Video as well for those health and fitness shows made for binge-watching!
