I know most of you already have your gift buying done and maybe even got some things for yourself. However, if you are looking for a GPS watch (maybe you have some running goals for a New Year’s resolution?), this is the best deal on an entrance into the GPS watch world. I have owned one before and these do a great job of helping you track and monitor your runs.
Great Deal: Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS Watch for $139
The Garmin Forerunner 235 was Garmin’s first watch with wrist-based heart rate monitoring. It has been at the $199 – $249 level for a while, which is kind of strange to me. The new Garmin Vivoactive 3 has additional smartwatch functions to it that the 235 did not and that has been at that same price.
However, at $139, the Garmin Forerunner 235 is a really great deal! It will be great for all your runs and it has decent battery life. I am not sure how long it will be at this price but it is even a really nice price for a backup if you have a more expensive Garmin watch.
