Amazon Prime Day has already been officially announced and the first offers are beginning to appear. Heading into July 11 and 12, we expect to see deep discounts on a bunch of wearables and other health and fitness tech, including some of the best Garmin watches around.
Garmin watches are great health and fitness companions for exercises like running, cycling, swimming, hiking, skiing, golfing…just about anything that involves moving around outdoors you can benefit from GPS and health information from a Garmin watch. Motion trackers for golf swings, maps of alpine slopes for skiing, and sophisticated ways to detect stride distance in a run—these watches have it all.
There is a wide variety of Garmin watches available, so there is one for every level of fitness, from the best cheap smartwatches for beginners and people who enjoy running a couple of times a week, to very expensive GPS watches designed for professional triathletes. . Some of the cheaper watches do not have all the mentioned features, so you will have to choose the most suitable one for you.
Fortunately, we often see deep discounts on the entire Garmin range during the Amazon Prime Day period, and this year is shaping up to be no different. Below are the three watches that I recommend keeping an eye out for during Amazon Prime Day.
1. Garmin Venus 2
The Garmin Venu 2 tops our list of the best Garmin watches, a perfect balance between a versatile everyday smartwatch and a powerful training tool. It’s a perfect all-terrain GPS watch, perhaps unsuited for professional and elite orienteers, but perfect for weekend warriors who love to go camping, running or swimming in the wilderness, while still having that Apple-style wearable wearable. Watch that you are able to wear to work every day. It’s a great watch in every way, to the point that we’ve given it five stars, and more importantly, it’s a couple of years old now.
The Garmin Venu 2 originally cost $399.99, but it can sometimes be found for much less. It’s usually the older watches that are heavily discounted on Prime Day as Amazon makes way for new stock, so you have a chance to snag one of the best Garmin watches of all time at their potentially lowest price, what a bargain.
2. Garmin Forerunner 55
When my friends ask me which “beginner fitness watch” they should buy, I usually ask them what type of exercise they want to start with. If they mention jogging, my recommendation is an Apple Watch or, if you’re using Android, the Garmin Forerunner 55. This is a simple, cheap, well-made GPS watch.
It’s a simple, cheap, well-built GPS watch with a battery that lasts ages and tells you everything you need to know about your runs, step counts, calorie burn, sleep, and recovery. As the name suggests, it’s a running-specific watch and it works well for that purpose, and you could wear this watch from your first 5K to your first half marathon and beyond.
It went on the market at a price of €199, but now it can be found cheaper and I think that in the sales it will be possible to get it for a little more than half.
3. Garmin Epix (Gen 2)
This is the other end of the spectrum. If you are an elite outdoor athlete, you need equipment to match. The Garmin Epix (Gen 2) is the Garmin Fenix 7, an elite, high-performance watch with tremendous battery life and sophisticated GPS tools, with a gorgeous full-color AMOLED display designed to be brilliant in all weather conditions.
Now that the Garmin Epix Pro and Garmin Fenix 7 Pro have been introduced, we’re expecting a price drop on last year’s non-Pro model in the Amazon Prime Day sales. And luckily, since the watch usually costs about €949.99, although, on Prime Day, at higher prices, greater discounts. A good option for your summer training plan.
