If you are not going for the new Apple Watch Series 3, here are some fantastic deals on Garmin GPS watches! Most of them are cheaper than the new Apple Watch and offer better battery life!

With the preorders starting tomorrow for the new Apple Watch Series 3, many people may be about to go that route. But, Garmin has rapidly become more relevant in the smartwatch space with their already-fantastic GPS watches so you may want to check out these deals first!

Great Deals on Garmin GPS Watches

A note on Garmin refurbished devices – Garmin does a fantastic job of standing by their products and I have no problem purchasing a refurbished watch from them. They are one of the few companies that has done right by me the few times I had an issue over the many years using their watches.

The Garmin Fenix 3 with leather band

I would say that one of the best deals in this current roundup has to be the Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire with Titanium band. This was available not long ago at a slightly higher price (but new) but I believe this is the best price on this from a reputable source ever. Definitely a classy watch that does an incredible job of tracking your workouts (I used to own the Garmin Fenix 3 and loved it).

The Garmin Fenix 5 Sapphire models come with black bands and an extra band (which would cost $49 otherwise). The Garmin Forerunner 230 has seen slightly cheaper prices but if you were waiting to see what the Apple Watch Series 3 would bring to the table and are disappointed, it is a good alternative – at a good price as well ($139).

I have owned and used each of these watches myself (not all particular models as far as the certain bands, though) and think all 4 base models are incredible.
