  • I would search on ebay, plenty of great deals on there !

  • I bought mine on sale at Hervey Norman. However, during the waranty period, my band broke and they refused to replace it as they said the band is a consumable product and therefore is not covered by waranty. I have since switched to an apple watch (more expensive I know), but I have not had any issues.

  • Jb-Hifi or Big W is best. They are constantly having sales, just keep checking their websites. The other option is to trade in some flybuys points and get it that way ????

  • I got mine through the Flybuys program and it really doesn’t take that long to earn points as if you sign up to emails and check their website a lot of bonuses are offered.

  • I got one for hubby using my Qantas points so it didn’t cost anything. If your Woolworths rewards card is hooked up to your Qantas card then you can earn points faster. From memory the fitbit was on sale that month too so it was even more of a bonus.

  • Thank you everyone who replied. I will certainly be checking out Big W to see what the current price is and then wait for the Christmas specials.

  • Good tip from a mum about Big W.

  • You can get a flex (its sync to your phone) for around $99, big W usually have them below this price.

  • J B Hi Fi , Office Works and such places seem to have pretty good deals. Coming up to Christmas, there may be special deals.

  • Purchased one from JB HIFI on special a couple of months ago. Well worth doing your research and keeping an eye on your catalogues and online specials.

  • I just purchased one through flybuys using my points. I got the charge 3 I think it was

  • I bought mine from Officeworks and I’m not sure what “model” you’re after, but mine was only $119

  • You can buy them at Officeworks but I’ve seen them more on sale at Dick Smith and JB HiFi.

  • Thanks everyone Will do a little more research

  • I was also going to suggest that you look at buying one through Flybuys – they usually have a special where you get bonus points.
