If fitness is on your New Year's resolution list this year, the January sales have some excellent deals on fitness trackers, headphones, and even sportswear right now.
For anyone on a budget, we'd recommend checking out the excellent Samsung GalaxyFit 2 fitness tracker - which is on sale over at the official Samsung store right now for just £39 (was £49) (opens in new tab). With a bright, readable 1.1-inch AMOLED display, slew of heart rate, sleep, and activity monitoring features, and seamless integration with the Samsung Health App, the Samsung GalaxyFit 2 is a great lightweight and budget-friendly option that has all the essentials.
Another good option for anyone who's a little more serious about their running is the Garmin Forerunner 45 (opens in new tab). It's one of the best running watches (opens in new tab) in its price bracket, and it's been discounted to just £129 (was £169) (opens in new tab) in the Currys January sale. With this more traditional looking wearable, you get adaptive training plans, VO2 max estimations, and even incident detection - all very handy features to have on your daily runs.
If you've already got your fitness tracker (opens in new tab) handy and want a pair of reliable earphones for your runs, we also recommend this deal in the January sales on the Beats Powerbeats (opens in new tab) at Currys for £99.99 (was £129) (opens in new tab). This pair of headphones won't budge, sound great, and go the distance too with 15 hours of battery life. And, finally, last but not least there's a great end of season sale on at Nike currently, which features a huge array of discount Nike sportswear (opens in new tab).
