Australia, USA And UK Price Evaluation
I was lucky enough to be given a Jawbone UP24 fitness tracker for Father’s Day the other week, an unusually expensive present for such an occasion. I get a Toblerone usually, but as I am on my first ever diet that would have been a significant cruel gift. Beneath the circumstances though, a fitness tracker made sense even if it was a little more expensive than usual.
Apparently the relative in charge of procurement agreed to the extra expenditure because of my earlier record of only requesting socks and record tokens at Christmases and birthdays. … but it has been came back again to the shop for a complete refund now. These fitness tracking wristbands though do seem to be the latest fad, a must have gadget for those looking to stay healthy and fit. Food tracking, sleep tracking, step tracking, distance tracking, and you name it tracking, with accompanied nagging, how did we live without them? But which country gets the cheapest fitness trackers?
- Weaning off is an essential time
- 1/2 an Apple, chopped fine
- Burpees – 30 mere seconds
- Accountability for taking part in exercise
- Indian foods to avoid in Summer. ‘No’ to these food types in Summer
- Advanced training timer
- All calorie consumption not created equivalent
Last week I used to be claiming that Australian prices were becoming more and more competitive with other countries in my own post called Fairer Prices for Australians; Shopping to Get Cheaper? Let’s put that to the exams with these fitness trackers. Note that the united kingdom and USA prices originated from Amazon in their particular countries, prices included free delivery. We don’t have Amazon within Australia, not just a proper one anyway.
We do now have an Amazon for digital stuff, but not yet for physical products. So, for the Australian prices I have had to look around, but I didn’t shop too much. At no point do I go past web page 1 of Google and I acquired my prices from Office Works (Jawbone and Fitbit) and JB Hi-Fi (Garmin).
The interesting thing about both of these is they are both ‘High Street’ stores; they are everywhere, just walk in, and purchase what you would like. Had I gone online (as with Amazon) I might ‘ve got slightly lower prices, we do have some very competitive online retailers who also offer free shipping.
You would presently get around 1.8 Australian dollars for just one GBP and you would bypass 1.1 Australian dollars for just one USD. It’s no real surprise to me and I’m sure it’s never to you either that these goods are cheaper in the US, maybe exactly what is a little surprising is that it’s not by much. It’s less than 12 bucks per fitness band when compared to Australian prices.
What is unexpected though is that these latest will need to have devices have a cheaper sales price here in Australia than they are doing in the UK even before we take into account the hard yakka. According to hard yakka theory at current rates, an Australian would have to work for 11.63 hours to buy all three fitness rings whereas someone in the united kingdom would need to work for 18.47 hours to do the same. There is a period when many Australians would look with envy at the purchase price other countries were paying for the latest gadgets, not anymore. Week As I said last, the space is closing, faster than even I thought maybe. New to this website?
