One of the best Garmin watches is for sale with a 20% discount on Amazon this weekend. The Garmin Fenix 7 Solar is a watch we've tested and loved, earning it a place in our guide to the best fitness trackers

They can, however, be expensive (as with all the best things in life), but this deal brings it down from $999.99 to $799.99 - a whole $200 reduction. Garmin products are designed for those who will not compromise on quality. Built with highly resistant materials and equipped with cutting edge functionality, these smart watches can do much more than your average fitness tracker. 

If Garmin aren't your brand, try the best Fitbits or more of the best running watches for alternatives (just be prepared to pay full price for them).

Buy it if: The kind of person who should consider a Garmin Fenix 7 is a serious runner, anyone who has a stacked workout routine that needs to be balanced carefully, or a hiker who wants to navigate using a watch rather than their phone or a paper map. 

Don't buy it if: Cost and general chunkiness are the two reasons to be put off a Garmin Fenix 7. It’s otherwise a stellar fitness watch. Garmin has a few alternatives if either of these factors is a problem.
