Prime Day isn’t until July 11 and 12, but some of the deals are starting early. Here are some of the best discounts Amazon is offering on outdoors gear, including smartwatches and stuff for camping, hiking, paddleboarding, and tootling around the neighborhood with (or without) your kid.

One of the more interesting items on sale is the Philips GoZero Smart Bottle, an insulated water bottle that features an ultraviolet light inside that you can use to either sterilize the bottle between uses (UV light kills germs), or even to purify water while the bottle is full. The CDC notes that this is effective in clear water (murky water blocks the light) so long as you follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
If you don’t need UV sterilizing, there is also an “everyday” version featuring a filter for better flavor. Both bottles are insulated and made of stainless steel.
Several Bluefin stand-up paddleboard packages are on sale starting July 4. These SUP boards are inflatable, but don’t think that makes them flimsy. Inflatable boards are constructed to be rock-solid under your feet, with one big catch, as we’ve written about—they do best with a specialized electric pump to deliver the amount of pressure they need (and shut off automatically without damaging the board).
The packages below come with a paddle, leash, carrying case, and a basic hand pump. We recommend adding an electric pump to your cart as well. This one, currently $139, is a good pick.
