One of our all-time favorite Garmin watches is now 20% off at Walmart

Looking for a top-quality running watch that will not drain your budget? Then you can't miss this deal — right now, our favorite Garmin Forerunner 955 is on sale at Walmart for $404.99, saving you a hefty $105. And while both Amazon and BestBuy are offering similar discounts on this bestselling model, the Walmart deal narrowly wins the competition by throwing in a generous 2-year Accidental Repair Plan Extended Warranty, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars in repair costs. 

We stand firmly behind the Garmin Forerunner 955 — it is one of the handful of fitness trackers that managed to score a full five stars in our tests. This versatile watch offers a multitude of advanced health tracking features, multi-band GPS navigation, and a whopping 15-day battery life, all without the sky-high price tag typical of Garmin products. It is also lighter and less bulky than what you would normally expect from wearables offered by this high-end brand. 

The Garmin Forerunner 955 is a fabulous choice for long-distance runners and triathlon enthusiasts, and right now you can snap it up for a fraction of the price — but hurry up, this deal will not last long.

Buy it if: You want a reliable and durable running watch that will pull its weight even on the most challenging trails, but that does not cost the earth or weigh your wrist down.
