Best Garmin smartwatch deals for Amazon Prime Day 2019
Until the superb Forerunner 945 came along in recent months, the Garmin Fenix 5 Plus was the most fully featured and impressive Garmin wearable we’d ever tested. It offers top-level sports tracking, full colour maps, Spotify music playback, and contactless payments via Garmin Pay, just to name a few of the best bits.
For Prime Day, it’s been reduced by £116 to just £380, its lowest price ever on the site and £220 less than its lofty £600 starting price. If you can’t justify such an outlay, the Fenix 5 and Fenix 5S have dropped in price to £285 and £280 respectively. These models have many of the same sports features but lack the maps, music playback and NFC of the Fenix 5 Plus series.
The Garmin Vivoactive 3 won a five-star Best Buy award when we first reviewed it back in 2017, and though it’s no longer the newest smartwatch in Garmin’s lineup, it’s now come down from £280 to just a bargain £130 for Prime Day.
It’s still a hugely capable multisport watch capable of tracking running, swimming and cycling to name just a few of its modes. And even if you’re not seriously into sport, it’s a great everyday fitness tracker promising seven-day battery life and logging metrics including steps, calories, heart rate and stress, to name just a few.
As you might expect, the Vivoactive 3 Music is a very similar device to the Vivoactive 3. As the name suggests, the main difference is the addition of music playback, either by transferring MP3 files to the watch or via its Spotify app.
You’ll need a Premium Spotify account to use the latter, but if you do then it’s one of the easiest ways to listen to Spotify when you exercise without needing your phone. At £150, the Vivoactive 3 Music is also by far the lowest-price Garmin device that supports Spotify playback.
