The Garmin Forerunner 35 gets a $50 price slash on Amazon

Garmin deal roundup

Spring and summer weather are perfect for outdoor workouts, and if you’re looking for an effortless way to keep track of your fitness goals (especially if you’re one of the elite who hasn’t abandoned those New Year’s resolutions), a good fitness tracker might be just what you need. One of our all-time favorites is the Garmin Forerunner 35, and it’s on sale right now for a pretty sweet discount that knocks it to a low $120 on Amazon.

If you’re skeptical about activity trackers, are shopping for a good fitness watch that isn’t overkill feature-wise but is more than a glorified pedometer, and aren’t looking to spend a ton of cash to try one out, then the Garmin Forerunner 35 is a fine device to start with. It’s a superb fitness tracker for runners, but its rugged waterproof build (and overall excellent construction quality) makes it a great choice for all sorts of workout routines and outdoor activities.

The Garmin Forerunner 35 punches above its weight in the feature department — especially at this cost — with a built-in GPS tracker and heart rate monitor, two things you don’t often see on fitness watches in this price bracket. The Forerunner 35 will monitor your heart rate as long as you’re wearing it, and the real-time GPS is ideal for tracking distance and even for navigation.

The watch naturally collects other fitness metrics as well, uploading everything to your profile in the Garmin Connect companion app when synced with your iOS or Android smartphone for long-term progress tracking. It can also send message and call notifications right to your wrist, and the bright LCD display is easy to read outdoors, including under direct sunlight.

The Garmin Forerunner 35 retailed for $200 when it was released and is currently hovering around a street price of $170. A $50 discount off of its current list price has cut this great activity tracking smartwatch down to just $120 on Amazon at the moment, making now a great time to take your fitness regimen to the next level.
