SAVE $270: Attention, runners. The Garmin Forerunner 935 is on sale for just $229.99 at Amazon as of August 8. That’s 54% in savings and its lowest price to date.


The sheer number of fitness trackers on the market can make choosing the right one quite overwhelming. You can go with an all-rounder like the Apple Watch, which keeps you in the know about personal fitness stats and lets you text and make calls. Or you can choose something more specialized, like a smartwatch specifically built for runners.

The Garmin Forerunner 935 is exactly that — a premium running and triathlon watch — and it’s on sale. It’s regularly $499.99, but you can get it for just $229.99 at Amazon. That’s $270 in savings and its lowest price to date.

Paired with a compatible heart rate strap or the compact Running Dynamics Pod, the Forerunner 935 offers advanced running metrics other smartwatches don’t, including ground contact time, balance, stride length, cadence, vertical oscillation, and vertical ratio.

There’s also a built-in barometer, altimeter, and electronic compass to help you keep your bearings in elevation changes, as well as training and recovery monitoring to indicate if you’re under-training or overdoing it. Finally, the battery life will put most smartwatches to shame — in watch mode, it lasts up to two full weeks.
