Whether you're a fitness expert or you want to take your first ever jog since because of how much you've eaten over the Christmas period, you may be setting yourself fitness goals for 2019.

While not essential, fitness trackers and smartwatches are some of the best tools to allow you to set, track and review your stats to improve your health, get stronger and reach your goals.

Whatever device you choose will come down to what goals you have for your fitness, so we've put together a couple of different categories you may fall into. Below is a selection of products discounted in the post-Boxing Day sales that may take your fancy, but check out our buying guides below for a full look at the best fitness tech.

Fitbit Versa £199.99 now £159.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
As you can guess from the Fitbit name, the Versa is a fitness focused smartwatch. It isn't as versatile as a Wear OS or Apple Watch, but with music playback (via bluetooth headphones), fitness apps, notifications you'd be hard pressed to go wrong. It's also 30% off the RRP, and while that's not the best priced we've ever seen it's still good.

For those who want a full blown smartwatch

If you're after a fitness tracking device that can also suit your daily routine too with a variety of top-end apps, the Samsung Galaxy Watch may well be it. Plus it's discounted by £20 at Amazon.

Garmin Fenix 5S Plus £599.99 now £474.99 at John Lewis (opens in new tab)
This watch is remarkably similar to the one just above, and that 'S' in the name refers to the smaller design. If you've got a thin wrist you may appreciate this slightly thinner and lighter look in the Garmin Fenix 5 Plus range.
