Garmin’s best running smartwatches are all on sale at their lowest ever prices
While Garmin’s extensive smartwatch portfolio might seem confusing and unnecessarily convoluted at first glance, especially compared with Apple and Samsung’s market-leading lineups, the wearable industry veteran makes the target audience of each product family crystal clear in its advertising efforts.
The Garmin Forerunner 945, of course, is both the most advanced and costliest member of this trio, normally going for $599.99 in a GPS-only variant and $649.99 with built-in 4G LTE connectivity.
Marked down by $150 from a $499.99 list price in no less than four different colors, snazzy red and “tropic” included, this thing comes with pretty much the same sophisticated sensors as its big brother, like blood oxygen saturation and body battery energy, and even an identical 1.2-inch display squeezed into an overall smaller and slightly lighter frame.
At its reduced price, this “easy-to-use” running watch is also incredibly competitive, being able to keep an eye on its wearer’s heart rate, respiration rate, stress levels, sleep, and hydration while delivering “daily suggested workouts” as well, resisting water immersion, and supporting GPS technology with no help from a connected smartphone. Oh, and did we mention it comes in “Aqua” in addition to black and white hues? That’s pretty darn swanky for a sub-$200 smartwatch!
