Our final update: Cyber Monday has ended. If you’re sale hunting, we’ve collected the best Cyber Monday deals still available (as of December 1). As always, we hope we helped you sift through the sales madness and find great products. Check our Holiday Buying Guides for the latest recommendations.
Whatever the weather, you’ll be happier this winter if you take at least the occasional opportunity to get outside. Whether you take a run, or enjoy nature’s rare solitude as the campsites and trails thin out in the colder months, there are always ways to stay warm and happy if you bring the right gear. And in between adventures, you can substitute going to the gym for a calorie-burning workout in your living room. We’ve waded through tons of Cyber Monday deals for the best fitness and outdoor gear that will help you stay in shape and get in tune with nature this winter.
We strike through items that sell out or are no longer at their deal price as of publishing. Discounts sometimes return, so check for yourself. We’ll update this guide throughout the weekend.
Special offer for Gear readers: Get a 1-year subscription to WIRED for $5 ($25 off). This includes unlimited access to WIRED.com and our print magazine (if you’d like). Subscriptions help fund the work we do every day.
Updated November 30: We’ve removed a number of deals today, and added a bunch, including the JaxJox DumbbellConnect, REI-branded HydroFlask, Darn Tough sock sale info, and Alps Mountaineering camp chair.
WIRED’s Cyber Monday Coverage
Outdoors Sales for Cyber Monday
50 Percent Back in Moosejaw Dollars (Enter CYBERTURKEY at Checkout): Normally at Moosejaw, you get 10 percent of your purchase price back as Moosejaw Dollars, which you can spend on future purchases on the website. For one day only, they’re offering 50 percent back.
LL Bean 15 Percent Off (Enter THANKS15 at Checkout): From the gear to need to splash through the winter to the blanket you use to cozy up indoors, nearly everything at L.L. Bean is on sale. Now’s the chance to pick up some Bean Boots, a classic still hand-made in Maine. (Read the fine print, though. There are exceptions to certain brands.)
Free Gift Wrap at Darn Tough With $50 Purchase: WIRED is secretly a cult for Darn Tough socks. From Oregon to New York, several of the Gear team writers swear by them in winter. I wear mine anytime I need a warm, wool sock, from mountain climbing to a night out in the city inside nice dress boots. I like the Fred Tuttles, but they’re all solid and backed up by a lifetime guarantee (on socks!). Also for Monday only, free standard shipping with every order.
25 Percent Off All Lifepro Products: Best known for their muscle massagers, used to ease muscle soreness after workouts, Lifepro also sells other exercise gear such as treadmills and compression sleeves.
40 Percent Off Backpacks and Gear at Outdoor Products: Ditch the school backpacks when you’re hiking. Outdoor Products makes durable backpacks for hiking, whether you just need a more rugged bag for dayhiking or an internal-frame pack to haul your gear to the campsite for a weekend in the woods.
Juiced Bikes Scorpion Ebike for $1,399 ($200 off): Enter HOLIDAY at checkout. We like the Scorpion (7/10, WIRED Review)—it’s basically a tiny, fun moped. There are better bikes out there if you need to traverse steep hills, though. Juiced has a sitewide promotion that ends tonight.
Fitness Tracker Deals
A fitness tracker can tell you a lot about your body these days. The best of them help you plan and keep track of your workouts, whether you’re trail running in the woods or circuit training in your apartment’s basement gym. Read our Best Fitness Trackers guide for more. We have a few more smartwatch deals in our Cyber Monday phone and gadget deals guide.
Suunto 7 Smartwatch for $349 ($150 off)
This watch can track workouts and help plan your hiking routes. It runs Google’s Wear OS platform, which supports iOS but is particularly suited for those with Android phones. Senior writer Adrienne So says Wear OS makes the Suunto 7 easier to use than any Suunto fitness tracker that came before.
Fitbit Charge 4 for $100 ($50 off)
Amazon, Target, Walmart, Fitbit
Some fitness trackers flood your brain with more information than you know what to do with. If you don’t need all the bells and whistles, keep it simple and save your money. Fitbit does simple, straightforward fitness trackers best. The Charge 4 adds GPS, which is typically only found on more expensive models. It also has solid sleep-tracking software, though the best features are reserved for those who pay an $80-per-year subscription for Fitbit Premium. At Amazon, the Charge 4 is backordered until late January.
Fitbit Versa 3 for $200 ($30 off)
Target, Walmart, Amazon, Fitbit
The Versa 3 has a 40-mm case with an AMOLED display, and it pairs as nicely with an iPhone as it does with Android devices. It’s better suited if you want to see more notifications from your phone, plus it supports Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
Garmin Fenix 5 Plus Sapphire Edition for $350 ($400 off)
The Fenix 5 Plus offers color topographic maps, route tracking, an altimeter, and GPS functionality. It’ll also analyze your heart rate to tell you what level of activity your body is ready for. Plus, you can also listen to Spotify through it and use Garmin Pay when you stop for a pre-workout coffee. The display is protected by sapphire crystal, which is tougher to scratch than glass.
Running Gear Deals
Even if you do have a treadmill at home, it’s good to head outside (with a mask) and get some sunshine and fresh air. Yes, it’s cold. But remember the old adage: There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes. Check out our Outdoor Gift Guide for more picks.
Nike Renew Run Running Shoes for $54 ($36 off)
Men’s: Dick’s Sporting Goods, Nike ($60+)
Women’s: Dick’s Sporting Goods ($60-65), Nike ($59+)
The Renew Run are a mid-priced trainer with a dual-density foam cushion under the midsole and mesh uppers. Pricing at Nike depends widely on colors, but use the code SHOP20 to take an extra 20 percent off sale prices at checkout.
Cotopaxi Teca Full-Zip Windbreaker for $60 ($20 off)
WIRED senior writer Adrienne So uses this windbreaker in lieu of a soft-shell rain jacket when she wants something that’s easy to stash away in a pocket. It weighs next to nothing and packs down to the size of a chest pocket, so it’s a great just-in-case windbreaker for weather that looks untrustworthy when you leave home.
Beats PowerBeats Pro for $160 ($90 off)
Amazon, Target, Best Buy, and B&H Photo Video ($200)
WIRED reviews editor Jeffrey Van Camp sang high praise for these Beats earbuds in his review (8/10, WIRED Recommends), saying they’re some of the best workout earbuds he’s tested. The over-ear design is much more secure when jogging than completely in-ear buds like the AirPods. They last nine hours, are splash-resistant, and they form a seal in your ear canal for good noise isolation. They sound great too! The wireless Beats Powerbeats (with a cord connecting both earbuds) are also on sale for $100 ($50 off) if you want to droop them over your neck when you take a break from listening.
Lululemon 28-Inch Leggings for $69 ($39 off)
When you dip outside for a jog in the winter, the temptation is to throw on some thermal leggings lined in warm, fleecy goodness. But do that, and you’re going to overheat before you complete the first mile. Stick with a pair of regular tights or leggings. Better to start out cool than spend your whole run sweating, and then freeze because you’re soaked. But go with full-length leggings instead of cropped leggings so your calves and ankles don’t get chilly, and avoid the lightweight, meshy fabrics made specifically for summer running.
Arc’Teryx Venta Gloves for $52 ($17 off)
If there’s a part of your body that’s going to feel cold on a winter run, it’s going to be your hands. Going without a pair of gloves is a mistake you won’t make too many times, because frozen digits can ruin a run, GORE Windstopper fabric keeps cold winds from whipping through the Ventas, and touchscreen-compatible fingertips mean you can use your phone, smart watch, or fitness tracker without having to take your gloves off.
Bombas Socks Are 20 Percent Off
Bombas Store (Enter CHEER20 at Checkout)
Some of our favorite socks for running come from Bombas. The company also makes excellent compression socks for post-workout recovery sessions. The coupon code CHEER20 is good for 20 percent of everything Bombas sells—all the socks, plus T-shirts and other apparel.
All TreadBands for $10 ($6+ off)
TreadBands (Enter CYBER20 at Checkout)
Sweat rolls down your face, and you wipe your eyes for the millionth time on your morning jog. That’s why you need a sweatband. WIRED’s Parker Hall called it the best sweatband he’s ever worn.
Deals on Strength Training Equipment
If you prefer resistance exercises, but bodyweight squats and lunges aren’t cutting it, then you’re facing the prospect of owning space-hogging equipment in your home. Good home exercise equipment shrinks its footprint so you don’t feel like you’re living in a gym.
JaxJox KettlebellConnect 2.0 for $199 ($30 off)
This is a six-in-one kettlebell system that lets you adjust from 12 to 42 pounds, and it includes performance tracking via the JaxJox companion app. With it, you can analyze your workouts and chart your progress over time. It maps statistics such as heart rate, peak and average power, and workout consistency.
JaxJox DumbbellConnect for $399 ($50 off)
No room for a full set of dumbbells? We hear you. Few people have that sort of closet or floor space. With the push of a button, you can adjust the weight of each dumbbell in 6-pound increments, from 8 to 50 pounds. Like with the KettlebellConnect 2.0, you can map statistics to analyze your workouts and track your progress through the companion app.
Fitness Gear 20-Pound Weighted Vest for $60 ($20 off)
Dick’s Sporting Goods
Earlier this year I wrote about how a weighted vest was my secret weapon in the gym. I’d strap one on and hit the stair machine to train for climbing or use it during squats and lunges to work my core muscles. It adds an incredible boost in versatility to your workouts, and it comes especially handy when you’re working out at home without a full rack of dumbbells at your disposal.
TRX Strong System Suspension Trainer for $112 ($38 off)
Dick’s Sporting Goods, Best Buy
Weights aren’t the only way to work strength training into your exercise routine. Attach the straps to a closed door in your home strong enough to support your body weight. Then work through the eight included exercises to build and tone muscle and strengthen your core. Unlike a complete set of dumbbells or an exercise machine that take up a lot of floor or closet space, the TRX suspension trainer packs away small when you need to store them.
Adidas Tiro 19 Training Pants for $30 ($15 off)
Men’s: Adidas, Dick’s Sporting Goods
Women’s: Adidas, Dick’s Sporting Goods
