If you're in the market for a Garmin smartwatch, now is the time to buy.
Amazon Australia has slashed the price (opens in new tab) on a collection of the tech company's fitness wearables, with savings of as much as AU$375. The Garmin Forerunner 935, Forerunner 245, Forerunner 245 music and Instinct have all been discounted dramatically.
And with them all being Prime eligible, Prime members won't have to wait long to try out their new toy.

The best deal comes in the form of the Garmin Forerunner 935. You'll save 50% on the discontinued model with Amazon, pricing their black edition at just AU$374 (opens in new tab).
While it may not be the latest tech, it's a great opportunity to get your hands on the predecessor to the 945 at a fraction of the price. When it first hit the market, the 935 was the best multi-sport watch you could get. It has built-in GPS, can measure heart rate on your wrist, Wi-Fi connectivity, supports smart notifications, can estimate VO2 max levels and provide you with training status and training load information – oh, and it has a million sports modes too.
So you're getting a whole lot of watch for a very good price – the same price as the lower tier Forerunner model below.

The Garmin Forerunner 935 is still a pretty premium smartwatch, despite being succeeded by the Forerunner 945. The 935 weighs just 49 grams and will give you two weeks worth of battery (or 24 hours in GPS mode). It can also provide you with top-notch running, cycling and swimming metrics. Get it on Amazon Australia at 50% off for just AU$374 in black (opens in new tab).
Our favourite running watch is also heavily discounted. You can grab yourself a Forerunner 245 Music for just AU$375 in white (opens in new tab), or AU$378 in the aqua flavour (opens in new tab). That's a saving of over AU$200. The Forerunner 245 Music is the ultimate smartphone-free GPS running watch for those who don't fancy forking out a hefty chunk of their savings for a smartwatch. While other models might provide more metrics, this model is a more-than-capable device as a running aid, especially considering its price point.
The standard Forerunner 245 in black is priced at AU$375 (opens in new tab), some 35% off the RRP.

The ultimate running watch just got even better. Already a T3 award winner, this light running watch is available for a bargain with Amazon Australia. Without overcomplicating it, the watch boasts just the right amount of features for people who are getting into running, making it the watch that will suit most people. Get it in white for AU$375 (opens in new tab) or aqua for AU$378 (opens in new tab).
If you're looking for something a little more rugged, the Garmin Instinct is available in graphite (opens in new tab) or tundra (opens in new tab) for just AU$249, a discount of AU$150 on the RRP. Although it's worth mentioning Garmin Australia has dropped the price of the standard Instinct model to AU$299 on their website, so it's really a AU$50 saving.
If you want the watch in blue, you can get it for AU$298 on Amazon (opens in new tab) and make the most of Prime's fast delivery to get your hands on it sooner.
Unfortunately, these aren't the Solar editions, so you'll have to make do with conventional charging options.
