The Garmin Forerunner 55 running smartwatch just SMASHED its own record-low price

Garmin deals are a regular occurrence during the Prime Day sales, but it's much less common to see a product undercut its own discounted price on the second day of the event. That's just what's happened here with the Garmin Forerunner 55 – previously discounted to a record-low price of £120, the Forerunner 55 has today upped the ante even further by slashing the price down to just £100.

Improving on its predecessor in every way, the Garmin Forerunner 55 is an excellent all-round smartwatch that offers decent battery life and a selection of running features that are especially useful for beginners.

At just 37g, the watch is comfortable enough to wear 24/7, which will help it to track your everyday activity, sleep and stress levels, as well as sports. It's also waterproof up to 50m and able to track pool swims – though not open-water swimming. The improved battery life makes it easier to wear for long period too, with up to 30 hours in GPS mode and a full two weeks in watch mode.

Despite being on the entry-level end of Garmin's range, the Forerunner 55 comes with an impressive array of features to help you plan and execute exercise sessions successfully and safely. For big races, the race predictor and recovery adviser will give you personalised information, estimating time for 5K, 10K, half marathon and full marathon races and telling you how long you'll need after each run to recover, respectively.

One of the star attractions of the Forerunner 55 has been seen on other Garmin watches, but never at this price point. Daily suggested workouts are offered based on your recent training, helping to ensure that your runs maintain a balance between easy, tempo and interval sessions to help you improve. You also get PacePro, which is a smart pacing tool designed to help you hit your target times in races, especially when running on an undulating course.

These are just some of the features included in the Garmin Forerunner 55 that can help you optimise your workouts. All of this functionality does come at the expense of strength workouts and screen quality, but for anyone who is focused on running and not fussed about having the brightest screen on their wrist, this Forerunner 55 deal is outstanding, and easily one of the best running watch bargains around right now.
