Wearable tech is certainly one of the ways to keep track of your activities and fitness, and can be far more convenient than just relying on a bike mounted computer. Often lots of the usual offerings don’t seem to put an emphasis on robustness and it can be a bit of a worry when smashing around with a few hundred pounds worth of technology on your wrist.
Luckily one of the best Amazon Prime Day cycling deals is the opportunity to save nearly £100 on a Garmin Instinct Rugged smart GPS watch.

It has a built-in 3-axis compass and barometric altimeter.
