Garmin Forerunner 745: was £399.99, now £210 (save 47% off)

Kicking off my top three, and one that is perfect for the running season, is the Forerunner 745, Garmin’s first and only dedicated triathlon watch. It helps you to train smarter, not harder, as it’s loaded with a ton of recovery features and sports modes, including triathlon mode. Its face is made from Corning Gorilla Glass DX, so it’s pretty durable,  the battery can last up to 7 days in smartwatch mode and there’s storage for your offline music. 

Garmin fēnix 7X SOLAR: was £649.99, now £528 (save 19%)

If you're looking for a more rugged smartwatch and enjoy the outdoors, then the fēnix 7X SOLAR is a great option, albeit it is a little bulky to wear. It's got a lot of features, so many that, realistically, you're probably not going to use half of them, such as pulse Ox (blood oxygen monitoring), wrist-based heart rate, stress tracking. Body Battery, Sleep Score...the list goes on! However, the standout ones for me are the flashlight (which can be a lot more useful than you think), real time stamina tracker and its super long battery life (up to five weeks in smartwatch mode) thanks to its solar charging capabilities. 

Garmin Forerunner 55: was £179.99, now £148.99 (save 17%)

Finally, another member of Garmin’s Forerunner family, it’s the Forerunner 55. This is smartwatch is best suited for beginner to intermediate athletes. It’s also easy to use, so another tick for those who are new to Garmin, and it’s far more affordable than its Forerunner siblings. Despite this, it’s still packed with great features such as tracking all your health metrics, personalised workout suggestions and Garmin Coach (that can help you run a 5k, 10k, or half marathon). It also has an excellent battery life of up to 20 days (in smartwatch mode). Sadly it’s not touchscreen though.
