Awesome Deal! Garmin Fenix 5 Plus Sapphire for $249 [Manufacturer Refurbished]

Written by Charlie

This is the best deal you will find on the top-of-the-line Garmin Fenix watch! This is an awesome price for one model old for a watch that does a great job tracking your workouts.

This is one of the best deals I have seen for a Garmin watch – and for a top-of-the-line model! Yes, up front, it is refurbished by Garmin but I have owned many such watches and never had an issue. The one time I had one have problems (after almost a year), Garmin replaced it within the week!

The Garmin watch lineup can be a little confusing. So, if you are looking for a great running/fitness watch and aren’t familiar with all the models, here is what you need to know about this watch and deal.

The Garmin Fenix 5 Plus is one model old (current is Fenix 6). The two biggest things you are missing from the newest model is blood oxygen sensor (cool, but not totally needed) and a slightly larger display (.1″). There are some other software things that Garmin is adding to the Fenix 6 but those are the biggest differences.

The Garmin Fenix lineup is their multi-sport/adventurer watch. It comes with pretty much everything in a body that can totally take whatever you throw at it – while looking pretty good as a watch, also. This model is up from the base Fenix 5 Plus in that it offers the Sapphire display.

This means the display is as durable as you are going to find in a Garmin watch. My current Garmin Fenix has a sapphire display and it really takes everything incredibly well.

So, what do you get with this watch?

  • Music storage (up to 500 songs
  • Can load music service playlists (like Amazon Music, Deezer, and Spotify)
  • Smartphone notifications
  • Garmin maps for route planning
  • Awesome battery life
    • Up to 12 days in smartwatch mode
    • Up to 18 hours in GPS mode
    • Up to 8 hours in GPS/Music mode
    • Up to 42 hours in UltraTrac mode
  • Waterproof to 10ATM
  • GPS/GLONASS/Galileo
  • Improved Garmin Elevate heart rate monitor
  • Barometric Alitmeter
  • Compass
  • Gyroscope
  • Accelerometer
  • Thermometer

All of this – and more – for just $249! New, this watch sells for over $600! This is refurbished for right around the same price as the Apple Watch Series 3. Consider this – Apple made a big deal about adding a built-in compass to the Series 5 – and the 44mm version sells for $429. This watch is almost $200 less with way more functionality and features.

This deal ends tonight and is definitely one to check out!
