Garmin Fenix 5 running watch range is now the best price we've ever seen it

On the hunt for some of the top tech for running? You'll want a multi-sport watch rather than a fitness tracker or smartwatch, and the Garmin Fenix 5 range includes some of the best and most capable devices the fitness manufacturer has ever made.

The company unveiled its Garmin Fenix 5 Plus family earlier this year that comes with improved mapping tech, Garmin Pay contactless payments and built-in music. Those are unlikely to be discounted by much soon as they are relatively new watches that start at £599 and range all the way up to £999.

If you don't want to pay those prices, we'd recommend going for the slightly less techy but still great for sports tracking range of Garmin Fenix 5 products.

Today is the first time we've seen the Garmin Fenix 5 watch down around the £300 mark at £309.99 when you're buying it from Amazon. Considering this watch launched in early 2017 at £499 that's a significant discount, and we'd recommend picking it up if you don't want those extra upgrades from the Plus range.

Garmin Fenix 5S watch £384.99 £349.99 at John Lewis (opens in new tab)
This is a remarkably similar watch to the Fenix 5 you see above, but it has a slightly smaller build that the company has created for those who want a smaller device on their wrist. It's a touch more expensive in this deal from John Lewis, but it's a worthwhile discount if you want the smaller version.
