If you have read any of my posts about GPS watches lately, you know that I am a HUGE fan of the new Garmin Fenix 5 watches. I had a Fenix 3 for a while and then moved up to the Fenix 5 when it came out earlier this year. As far as a GPS watch, it is fantastic but it also brings an element of style for everyday use as well as some smartwatch capabilities to your wrist. An Apple Watch it is not, but that is not always a bad thing!
Get 15% Off Garmin Fenix 5 Watches
The biggest downside to the Garmin Fenix 5 series watches is the price – these are not cheap! But, if you were thinking about spending the $400 or more on an Apple Watch Series 2, this deal will put the Garmin Fenix 5 a little bit closer to that price. Here are the details about this sale.

I don’t know how long this sale will last on these but it is a good discount, especially since Garmin does not typically allow discounts to be offered by retailers on their watches. I am not sure if this discount will shortly exclude the Garmin watches or not so if you are on the fence about it, I would act soon.
There are three main models of the Garmin Fenix 5 series. The Garmin Fenix 5S (which is a smaller version), the Garmin Fenix 5 (which is the middle of the road option in size), and the Garmin Fenix 5X. The 5X is the largest model and is the only one that comes with built-in mapping – in pretty great detail! There is even a feature to map out a route for you if you are in a new place or just want to see what it suggests for a given distance. Very nice! I opted for the regular 5 model because the 5X was a little big for me and they did not have maps built-in for Europe yet. Maybe I will switch some time down the road.
The Garmin Fenix 5 Discount!
These watches are not cheap, though! They start at $599 with the Sapphire models going up to $699 (the Sapphire versions also come with WiFi and a second band which would normally cost $49). If you want to go all the way up, the Garmin Fenix 5X with the steel band rings in at a huge $849!
But, with this sale, you can get all of that for 15% off!

The strange thing is that the Garmin Fenix 5 that is listed on the site is at $699 instead of the $599. The $699 price typically indicates that the Fenix is the Sapphire model but it doesn’t mention that. Also, the description for it says it is 42mm which is what the 5S is so keep that in mind. Personally, because of the lack of description with it, I would go for the 5S or 5X with this sale. If you want full mapping, go with the 5X. After the discount, it comes down to $594. Or, you could opt for the 5S at $509.

If you want to squeeze a bit more in savings out of the Garmin Fenix 5X, you can find it on eBay from a retailer. It is 17% off plus you could use a shopping portal for a bit more. It is down to $580, so an extra $14 off. Not bad!
