One of the best running watches around is now nearly half price at just £165

Amazon cuts price of Garmin Forerunner 235 for Black Friday

Currently sitting pretty at #2 in our popular Best Running Watches buying guide (behind another Garmin, as it happens), the Garmin Forerunner 235 was a huge leap forward when it came out 2 years ago.

Garmin Forerunner 235 | £164.99 | Was £299.99

As well as putting heart rate tracking on your wrist, the Forerunner 235 also calculates your VO2 Max fitness rating and gives an estimate on how long you should take to recover after every run or workout. Customised workouts, social and app integration complete a fantastic package for the fit-loving. You've got one day to complete this particular 'race', the deal ends Saturday.View Deal

Garmin makes more advanced watches than the 235 – the 630 offers more running insights and the triathlon-focussed 935 has so many features, you may never actually uncover them all. 

However, in terms of value for money, solid daily fitness tracking (steps, sleep, etc), power features and wearability, there's nothing to match this right now.

Garmin Fenix 3 also going cheap

Amazon also has some decent deals on another slightly older but still excellent watch, the Fenix 3. This chunky number is aimed at outdoorsy types but also includes much of the core functionality of Garmin's running watches.

The wrist HR version of the Fenix 3 is now just £275, down from £490.
