Amazon offers the Twelve South ActionSleeve Armband for Apple Watch for $24.99 Prime shipped when promo code 5ACTION is applied during checkout. That’s a $5 savings and the first discount that we’ve seen. Rated 3.9/5 stars. In case you missed it, we’re giving away a pair of ActionSleeves this week as well.

Twelve South Action Sleeve Features:

  • Use Apple Watch when sports gear or activity restricts wrist placement
  • Improves hear rate tracking with tighter, more consistent skin contact
  • Built-in bumper protection helps shield Apple Watch from nicks and dings
  • Fits arms up to 15 in. (38cm) and is hand-washable

The Apple Watch is one of the most advanced health & fitness device ever, but the wrist is not always the perfect place to wear it. Sports like Kickboxing, Weightlifting and CrossFit often require protective sports gear and full wrist mobility that can rule out the use of Apple Watch on the wrist. Enter ActionSleeve which straps your Apple Watch to your upper arm where it maintains tracking data but is out of harms way. ActionSleeve’s outer frame adds protection from nicks and dings and with tighter, more consistent skin contact, it can even improve heart rate monitoring.
