There’s an incredible variety of smartwatches to choose from, even just from Garmin itself—but trying to find a good deal on them always tends to narrow down your options. Still, there are some great Garmin smartwatches currently on the market for under $300. Here are our picks for Garmin smartwatches that might just fit your needs.
Best Garmin deal overall
The Garmin Venu is a great staple Garmin watch that ticks so many boxes it’s hard to provide a comprehensive list. It tracks your heart rate, blood-oxygen saturation, breathing, stress level, sleep cycle; it also provides fitness tracking, music … and so much more. It also happens to be the best deal out of all the watches, with a 48% discount. Garmin Venu: $179.99 (normally $350).
Best Garmin deal for long battery life
If you require a long battery life for your smartwatch, then it doesn’t get better than the Garmin Instinct Solar. True to its name, it has a solar power feature that charges your watch while in the sun. Outdoorsy people who hate depending on chargers should consider this one—it’s got a battery life of 24 days. Garmin Instinct Solar: $248 (was $349.99).
Best Garmin deal for analog lovers
Analog watches will always have a more classic and presentable look than digital screens. If you’re looking for a professional analog watch without giving up on the smartwatch features, then consider the vivomove 3s. Garmin vivomove 3s: $159.99 (was $249.99).
Best Garmin deal if you’re on a budget
The Garmin Venu Sq was my first smartwatch. It has most of the same features as the Venu; it comes with a square face and a screen that’s less vibrant than the Venu. However, you can get it at a much cheaper price, on top of a 40% discount. Garmin Venu Sq $117.99 (was $199.99).
Best Garmin deal for those who hate touchscreens
If you hate touch screens and miss the good old days when you just pushed a button for things to work, then this simple outdoor Garmin with the same smartwatch capabilities as the others will be for you. Garmin Instinct: $173.95 (was $249.99).
Best Garmin deal for those looking for a small smartwatch
If you’re looking for a Garmin that won’t take up too much space on your wrist, then consider the Garmin vivoactive 4S 40mm, which measures 1.57 x 1.57 x 0.5 inches, and boasts the same analog screen as the vivomove 3s. It’s currently 39% off at Amazon. Garmin vivoactive 4S: $199.99 (was $329.00).
