Black Friday 2022 is all about cheap Garmin deals; just look at this brilliant Fenix 6X deal or this Instinct Solar offer. How about that inexpensive Forerunner 245 sale? Well, if it wasn't enough, we found another: the beginner-friendly Forerunner 55 is down to its lowest-ever price, selling for only £129.44.

In our Garmin Forerunner 55 review, we said it's a significant update over the Forerunner 45, and it's also very cheap, at least by running watch standards. Its only flaw is the screen, but this is to be expected from a watch that costs so little. Now, it costs even less, which makes us forget about the issues even more.

The Forerunner 55 has an impressive 2-week battery life, has built-in GPS, and monitors a range of running metrics with high accuracy, including time, distance, pace and speed during runs or walks. It also allows you to monitor overall health and wellness with the wrist-based heart rate sensor. Better still, the watch suggests workouts based on your training load and capabilities!

Should you buy the Garmin Forerunner 55 on Black Friday?

It might not be the best running watch overall, but the Forerunner 55 doesn't cut too many corners, and for beginner runners, the shortcomings of this otherwise excellent GPS watch will be hardly noticeable. This is the Forerunner you need if you're on a tight budget!
