The Garmin Forerunner 910XT is one of my all-time favorite GPS watches (and I have used/owned almost every Garmin GPS watch). It is a multi-sport watch that targets the triathlon crowd but is perfectly useable for any runner that wishes to have a watch with a battery that just lasts. For most runners, you will get almost two weeks of regular running out of this watch (20 hours on a charge).
Garmin Forerunner 910XT New $239
The watch is at Dicks Sporting Goods for $239. You need to add it to your cart to have the discount put in. It ships for free.
The watch, though it looks big, is actually very comfortable to wear and a huge upgrade from the 310XT in terms of the feel and build. For me, it fit just right. The face of the watch is big and bold and gives you all the information you will need at a quick glance without having to stare at it to get the numbers.
I actually had moved from this watch to the Garmin Forerunner 620 (because I always like to try different watches). Though I liked the smaller form factor and some of the newer features (like Live Tracking – letting others track you on your workouts/race), I really missed the battery life and screen. Fortunately, my new Garmin 920XT (the upgrade to the 910XT) will be here next week so I get to go back to the Garmin 9xx series. Even though the Garmin 920XT is the upgrade to the 910 and does incorporate some newer features, given the price difference between the watches as a result of this sale, it is a no-brainer to go for the 910XT. In fact, if you were considering the 310XT, it is worth the $80 (completely worth it) to jump up to the 910XT.
Some vendors had this on Black Friday weekend at the $239 price but I had overlooked it looking for some other things. But, now Dicks Sporting Goods (of all places – I had never bought a running watch from them because of lack of sales) has the watch brand new for only $239! That is down from the retail price of $399 (though you can find it in the lower $300s at many retailers) and $20 cheaper than the manufacturer refurbished 910XT. A few months ago, I listed a great deal on this watch at the same price for a refurb!
If you were considering this watch, this will probably be as low as it gets for a while. To read the best, most comprehensive review on this watch, head over to DC Rainmaker’s site.
