This incredible Garmin Forerunner 645 deal is somehow still going

It might have first gone live on Boxing Day, but this deal in the January sales is still one of the best we've seen over the festive period - a Garmin Forerunner 645 with Music for far less than at other sites.

Why? Well, the first clue is in the name: the 'with music' element means you've got offline Spotify on your wrist, so you don't need your phone when exercising - but more importantly, it's just £199 at Argos - and it's still going days after we spotted it, so we're thinking it's not a mistake.

This price drop is so good that we had to check ourselves a couple of time that it was legitimate - however, it's the same as we saw on Black Friday. This is a mid-range watch from Garmin, but started well north of £400 just a year and three quarters ago.

We're not sure how an advanced running watch with Spotify on board is able to be offered this cheaply, but here it is - grab this excellent fitness and exercise tracker for a steal.View Deal

For that price, we've had to check it's not a mistake - this is the same watch that's over £400 on Amazon, and around £350 at Wiggle (a retailer known for great prices on sporting equipment).

So for Argos to have it this cheap is perplexing - but we're not complaining. The main issue we had with the Garmin Forerunner 645 was the battery life, as it's surprisingly short for a watch from this brand.

But when running it holds up just fine - it's in the day-to-day use that it's a little shorter, and you're still getting sleep, stress, heart-rate and other monitoring on the wrist, and it's pretty fully-featured when running too.

So if you've got a loved-one after a new watch, steer them this way - it's an even better deal than on the base-level Garmin Forerunner 245, which is surprising.
