Amazon stocks a wide selection of affordable sports equipment, but when its sales roll around, you can find items at just a fraction of their usual price.
Sometimes you can save hundreds of pounds on a single product, so it’s a great time to invest in the more expensive pieces of kit on your wish list.
We’ve picked out the best deals for triathletes in Amazon’s spring sale, from energy gels to Garmin watches.
Best Amazon deals for triathletes
Garmin Fenix 6S Pro
Sale price: £359.99 | Deal ends: 13th April | Buy now
Packed with intuitive features to help you get the most from your workouts, Garmin watches are a fantastic choice if you’re in the market for a new fitness tracker. Happily, lots of the brand’s wearable tech is in the Amazon sale this spring.
The Garmin Fenix 6S Pro is the first of our favourite options. You can read about the Fenix 6 series here. In our review in issue 372 of 220 Triathlon, we praised it for its impressive screen, a huge list of features beyond the standard ones you’d expect and its in-depth performance data.
Heart rate and GPS data is accurate, while there’s also music storage, smartphone notifications and Garmin Pay for contactless payments. Plus, the battery lasts up to 34 days, depending on the mode you select.
Science in Sport Energy Gel
Sale price: £28.19 | Deal ends: 13th April | Buy now
Amazon’s spring sale is a great opportunity to stock up on fitness supplies like bulk packs of energy gel. Science In Sport is one of our go-to brands in this area, and this is its multi-pack of Beta Fuel pouches (reviewed here).
This latest version of SIS gel has a 1:0.8 ratio of maltodextrin to fructose, which helps you process carbs more efficiently to boost your energy levels.
As your body needs around 80-120g of carbohydrates per hour and these SIS pouches give you 40g, you’ll need to consume between two and three every hour you’re exercising.
Garmin Edge 530
Sale price: £179.99 | Deal ends: 13th April | Buy now
Bike computers can be an expensive purchase, but Amazon’s sale is a chance to get one at a discount. The Garmin Edge 530 is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled, and comes with a 2.6-inch LCD screen.
If you’re in need of cycling routes, the 530 can offer map features like trail difficulty ratings and course recalculation. Plus, it’ll let you know how far through an ascent you are when tackling hills. This device is also said to monitor your VO2 max, altitude acclimation and hydration levels.
You can even stay in touch with friends and family while on the move when the device is paired with a phone. Receive calls, texts and social media notifications and keep others updated on your location and route.
Zoggs Phantom 2.0 Goggles
Sale price: £9.99 | Deal ends: 13th April | Buy now
These Zoggs goggles have plenty of great features, and at this price they’re worth considering if you’re in need of a new pair.
One of the standout elements of the Phantom 2.0 is the hypo-allergenic liquid silicone used in the soft-seal gasket. Zoggs says that thanks to its high-quality yet lightweight construction, you should get a close fit around the eyes.
Features include include an anti-fog coating and UV technology on the lenses, which seek to provide great visibility in the water.

Garmin Instinct Solar
Sale price: £149.99 | Deal ends: 13th April | Buy now
Now that the new Garmin Instinct 2 range is out, there’s a great chance to snap up the old one for a bargain.
The handy solar charging feature sets this Garmin watch apart from others on our list, as it tops up the battery for you whenever you exercise outdoors (providing you get enough light).
Of course, the Instinct Solar also comes with a whole range of useful fitness modes, tracking everything from your training sessions to your sleep quality. It’ll also alert you if your heart rate is too high or low, and you can even receive notifications from your phone while you’re working out.

High5 Energy Gel
Sale price: £8.70 | Deal ends: 13th April | Buy now
Here’s another energy gel multi-pack, this time from High5. It comes with 20 individual sachets, so it’s a great option if you want to restock your supply cupboard.
These pouches have less carbohydrate energy than the SIS’s 40g packs above, offering 23g per sachet. They’re also vegan and free from caffeine and artificial sweeteners. In fact, there’s actually real fruit juice in this gel.
Sale price: £189 | Deal ends: 13th April | Buy now
With its striking design, this fitness tracker is a stylish accessory and will look smart whether you’re exercising, working or socialising. Its bright AMOLED display has a five-day battery life in smartwatch mode, and can show animated cardio, strength, yoga and Pilates workouts whenever you need them.
There’s all-day health monitoring to track everything from your energy and stress levels to sleep quality and menstrual cycles. The Venu also comes with over 20 GPS and indoor sports apps for instant workout guidance, and the clever incident detection feature can alert your loved ones if you get into trouble.
Plus, you’ll get lots of other useful add-ons for downloading music, receiving mobile notifications and making contactless payments.
