A fitness tracker can be super motivating and help bring your workout to the next level. But most trackers have to be paired with a smartphone to do their thing, which means lugging around extra tech while you’re trying to move. It’s a bummer. Who wants to worry about dropping their phone while doing squats or worse, while running? No one.
Luckily, the Garmin Forerunner 935 Running (30.5mm) watch works on its own—and it’s 50 percent off over at Amazon right now. It’s on sale for just $249—that’s a savings of $251! We’ll wait for you to pick your jaw off the floor.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Track your goals without your phone
Waterproof and sweat-proof, the Garmin Forerunner 935 is an all-in-one fitness smartwatch that tracks heart rate and calories burned, plays music, counts steps and mileage, and offers GPS. No phone required. Over 1,000 Amazon shoppers have given the watch a flawless five-star rating—basically, they’re obsessed.
“I love my Garmin! I'm an enthusiastic athlete and this is a terrific tool for keeping track of workouts, as well as sleep and other things,” wrote a happy five-star reviewer. “After more than 35 years of serious distance running and multi-sport training, I have never consistently tracked my heart rate and see now how useful (and undoubtedly healthful) that feature will be. I've only been using the watch for a few days but so far I am impressed with its ease of use. I was worried that the setup would be overly taxing, but it turned out to be very intuitive to set up and operate. So far, so good!”
Buh-bye Apple Watch
The Garmin Forerunner 935 beats out the Apple Watch on many points, whether you’re an Android or iPhone user. The Garmin offers a lot more—including GPS and a longer battery life—at a much better price.
The Garmin’s battery lasts up to 14 days per charge (that’s days not hours, people); Apple Watch’s battery life is 18 hours max!
And the Apple Watch, like most fitness trackers, needs a phone to do its best tricks. Like we said, lugging around your phone is the last thing you want while exercising.
Run, don’t walk, to grab this tracker
If you’re a bargain hunter, this is the deal you’ll want to pounce on. At 50 percent off, the Garmin Forerunner 935 is a no-brainer—versatile, sleek, and waterproof, it’s packed with features to pump up your workout. But hurry—this deal won’t last long.
Says another five-star reviewer: “...If you want sheer power and features, with a ridiculously long battery life, the Garmin Forerunner 935 is the hands down winner.”
