As the days get longer many of us are getting back to our favorite outdoor sports. If you’re trying to get active, the right piece of fitness tech can be a big help in meeting those goals, and it might not cost you as much as you think. From smartwatches to GPS displays, Garmin makes tons of great tech and equipment to help you take your workouts to the next level. And with some equipment built especially for people who golf, fish, hike or partake in other outdoor activities, now is a great time to invest in tech to bring your hobbies into the 21st century.
These innovations can make life easier, and with just a little digging, you can even find many of these items on sale. While Garmin occasionally has direct deals on its own products, some of the best offers out there are from third-party retailers. Below, we’ve gathered some of the best deals you can shop right now on a variety of Garmin equipment, including fitness trackers, GPS bike computers and much more.
We’ll continue to update this story as prices change and deals emerge or expire, so be sure to check back for the best prices.
The Fenix 6 Pro multisport GPS smartwatch features an always-on 1.3-inch display that’s 18% larger than previous Fenix models. The bezel is stainless steel and it has been tested to US military standards for thermal, shock and water-resistance. It tracks even more rugged challenges, delivers text messages and alerts to your wrist, and you can use it to pay on-the-go. With a battery life that can last up to 14 days between charges in smartwatch mode, you’ll be able to keep going no matter what comes your way.
The Venu is packed full of helpful health metrics like heart rate, blood-oxygen saturation, breathing, sleep cycle and more. You can even log your hydration for a more accurate read on your body’s energy levels throughout the day. It typically sells for $350, but right now at Garmin, you can build your own custom model starting at just $200.
This watch features eight days of battery life on a single charge and boasts many of the features of the Veru series, though it does lack some of the heart-monitoring tech available on the other models.
The Forerunner series has a lot of different features depending on which model you select, but if you’re a runner, these are optimal for training. There are more models available below, but we wanted to highlight the Forerunner 945, the premium GPS running and triathlon smartwatch with music, as it’s exceptionally durable and offers the most features.
If you don’t want to drop nearly $500 on the Forerunner 945, its step-down cousin the Forerunner 935 is still an excellent choice. It’s not quite as scratch-resistant, and has a less powerful GPS, but it shares many of the same features and trackers, including heart-rate, oxygen levels and advanced biomechanical measurements like cadence, stride length and vertical oscillation.
