Regular readers know that I am a huge Garmin watch fan. I have been using them for 8 years and will not go running without one. I have owned/used just about every watch they have made. In fact, I like them so much that I did not even consider the Apple Watch as a fitness replacement (partially helped by Apple’s decision not to incorporate a GPS chip into the watch).
The one line that I have not used much yet is the Garmin Fenix series. The Fenix series, as of late, has included a lot of the features from many of the Forerunner watches but they are also made for the person who enjoys hiking or wearing this watch all the time. The Fenix 2 received a lot of great reviews and I actually bought one last year intending to keep it over my Forerunner 620 but instead waited for the Forerunner 920XT. That has changed as I am waiting now for my Garmin Fenix 3 and really excited about giving the Fenix lineup a try.
Garmin Fenix 2 for $239 or with HRM-Run Monitor for $269!
But, the Fenix 3 is $500 (less if you buy through Clever Training with DC Rainmaker’s 10% off code or through Road Runner Sports as a VIP). Selling my watch allows me to make a lateral move to the Fenix 3 but I understand not everyone has a watch at that level to sell to move to the Fenix 3. If that is you, then today is your lucky day! Amazon has a fantastic deal on the Special Edition (basically, a red band) Garmin Fenix 2 watch. They are selling the watch by itself for $239 and the watch with the awesome HRM-Run strap/module for $269. Those are incredible prices and you are in for a great watch at a great price.
It is available through Amazon and ready for Prime shipping – you could have it on Monday! Worst case, you could send it back or even recoup your cost/make a little extra selling it on eBay. Either way, if you are in the market for a great GPS watch, this is your deal. To read DC Rainmaker’s review, check it out here.
