    Was Vinyls/CD's 20% off included in the catalogue?

  • +10

    Can you post entire catalogue fam ?

  • +2

    Amazing price, also a massive watch- great find OP

    • +2

      Heh. Some people would need wrist implants to pull this one off! ;)

    • So not suited to little wrists? Is there a ladies version? I can't seem to find that info clearly

      • +3

        Hey Kimba I have relatively normal sized wrists I guess I tried on a 6 pro and 6x sapphire and it felt like a brick compared to the standard size (6x is the biggest, 6 is standard and 6s is the smallest).

        There is 6s they are even smaller and I guess more suited to ladies wrist (got my Mrs one).

        • Thanks for clearing this up. It's a shame the 6s has a much smaller battery life and missed out on some of the features of the 6x. Looks like I'd definitely need the smallest one due to having a very petite wrist :-(

          • @kimba88: 6s is great realistically does everything we need

      • +1

        The Fenix 6 comes in 3 sizes which are the 6s (42mm), 6(47mm) and 6X(51mm). Seems like only the 6X is at this price though..

        • The 6s was on sale at JB for 599 about 3 weeks ago.

          • @T0ken: 6s is still $599 direct from garmin, among many other places.
            Was shopping about for one last night.

      • +1

        Pretty sure this one is 51mm diameter, which is not going to sit nicely on small/petite wrists. There could be a 6s - but I might be thinking of another product.

        Edit- got sidetracked before responding and now there are several answers already addressing this. Soz!

  • +1

    Gee, I thought I got a good deal when I paid $844. They priced matched Garmin at the time $999 then they had 11% off and I bought it with 5% off gift cards.

    • +1

      Yeah I’m a little bit in the same, I got a instinct solar for $488 for the 11/11.

      Need to calm down and remind myself it does what I want and was $200 less

    • +1

      If you pop into the a JB store on the day the sales starts you can be refunded the difference using their 14 day price guarantee. Due to the fact that the sale starts on the Wednesday as opposed to the Friday like previous year, you are within the 14 day period. A nice little refund if you can be bothered to go back into the store.

      • Thanks, I did just that and got refunded $190.11 which I was super happy about. It was a gift card because I used gift cards to pay for it. I also put my brother onto the deal. He went to a JB on Monday and bought the only one his JB had in stock at full price. Then today he went back collected his $700 refund.

  • +5

    What a steal.

    I'm a Wildlands Firefighter, have had my 5x Sapphire for around 10 weeks responding to fires and undertaking prescribed burns and general works. Not 1 scratch on the screen.

  • +4

    Price insurance FTW! Muahaha. Best price all year!

  • +2

    what makes this watch so expensive ?

    • +9

      Sapphire glass, gps, music player, garmin pay, smart watch capabilities, fitness tracking

      The only thing missing is Google assistant

      • +1

        But there is kinda workaround for some gh functions. You can switch your smart home switches on/off using ifttt apps on fenix

  • +1

    Forerunner 245 staying steady at $289

    • +1

      I saw another deal floating around from Kogan for $230 or something close…

      • no way, do u have link

      • +1

        Perhaps you were thinking of the Shopback 20% cashback for rebel over a week ago taking the 245 music down to $239 after cashback.

        • I thought it was extra 11% off on 11/11 or something

          • @poposhh: 11% on singles day will take it down to $257.21 and perhaps lower if you could get discounted gift cards…

  • This is so tempting I wish I had sold my 5x sapphire earlier

  • +12

    I love my tech and work in the IT field

    I've had countless apple watches, some fit bits and some android watches

    This watch i've had for nearly a year and by far it is the best smart watch i've ever owned or used

    Long battery
    fast notifications
    Nice looking with a big screen size
    Very tough, never had any scratches on the screen and I use this when doing heavy garden work (think excavation and laying retaining walls)

    Best thing about this watch is you know what you are getting.
    With all other smart watches you constantly are waiting for software updates and new models to enable new features

    This watch, you know where you stand and its bloody brilliant !!!

    • +3

      Agree with all of this. Garmin rocks when it comes to software updates, this watch has been constantly updated since release and it is still the flagship in their lineup so continues to get solid updates. New beta version out today even.

      I'm in one of the emergency services and wear this everyday - my watch takes an absolute beating, and yet not a scratch on that beautiful screen.

    • Cons:
      - non-touch screen / buttons only
      - low-resolution screen
      - limited apps

      • +4

        That’s very true but I see those as positives

        I’m getting a watch and don’t have to worry what else is down the line

        I don’t care if it’s touch
        I don’t care about the apps
        The low resolution is there but I’ve never looked at it and thought that it looks bad

        • +2

          100% agree with this. This is what gives it a good battery life and it suited for slightly more serious athletes. If I wanted all those other things I’d go an Apple Watch and have to charge it daily.

      • +6

        You don't want touch screen when running or cycling, which is what this watch it built for

        • +1

          Yeah touch screens are prone to accidental activations. Lost a few activities on my old va3.

  • +1

    I just upgraded to this watch from a forerunner 935. Paid $720 for it. The watch is awesome. It's really fast to navigate between menus. The software has a lot more useful features. The music feature is very handy.

  • +1

    Thanks for sharing the whole catalogue :)

  • +1

    This is a great price. I paid $999 from Rebel (plus 10% off voucher) just last week. Will investigate my options of price match….

    • I'm in the same boat mate. Did you have a chance to look at what are the options?

      It doesn't bother me much, but if there is an option to get $300 back without doing anything, why not.

    • Buy this watch from JB and return it unopened at Rebel with your original receipt?

  • This or the Pro?

    • How much is the Pro? Sapphire screen on this is pretty important for me. I had a Fenix 3HR which is sapphire. 2+ years and not a single scratch.

      • I have the pro and just use a glass screen protector as it's not saphire.
        The bigger benifit the saphire models have in my eyes is that the bezel is more durable than on the none saphire models.

    • As below, all sapphire models include premium features (Pro).

  • whats the earliest the deal will be available. Will i be able to buy online at midnight?

    • +1

      Should do, yes.

  • +3

    I am still rocking my Garmin 3HR Sapphire.
    Never looked at Apple or Fitbit watches.
    The battery life is still holding 7 days after using it for 4 years without a break!

    The great part is, I don’t really want to upgrade to the 6x because I get all “necessary” feature from my current one.

    • +2

      I updated to this, from the same watch you have. You're not missing much other than a larger screen and MUCH snappier performance. You can rest assured holding off is not a bad idea. Although, this is a damn good price….!

    • +1

      I upgraded from a fenix3 HR sapphire after about 4 1/2 years. Last year I spent 10 hours on GPS riding 300Km around the bay and the battery still had 40% left. Must admit it was a bloody good watch however when I was commuting to work every day and running a couple of times a week during lunchtime the battery wouldn't last a week. The new watch is a bit lighter and more comfortable to wear and the battery so far is even better again.

    • same

  • time to stock up giftcard, is it 5% off on JB gcs?

  • -1

    only lacking is "pro" feature, otherwise a perfect watch

  • +1

    Great price, would get if I wasn't having fun with my 5 Plus

  • +1

    …. Really? So popular?

  • +6

    I would strongly suggest those that haven’t seen the normal glass vs sapphire glass to check it out in person. I have used both and although I understand the merits of scratch resistance, the reflections from the sapphire are so much more intense that I personally prefer just the normal glass.

    The difference is huge in high light situations, like looking at iPad vs a kindle. The difference though is that the screens on these watches aren’t emitting light like iPad so the reflections are super obvious

    • +3

      Also wanted to add that I know for some the sapphire glass reflection is a visual thing and does convey “expensive” but I feel for a watch like this, usually function is more important

      For those that are paranoid about scratches, the bezel around the front is raised so you really need to hit it with something hard that only impacts the face to have any effect.

      I had only used the sapphire models in the past and was blown away by how clear the non sapphire ones were hence my post about it.

  • +1

    Just here to suggest people cross shop with Coros apex/apex pro. Particularly if you aren't a long term Garmin user :)

  • +1

    tempted, how does this compare to the samsung galaxy watch?

    • +3

      I think it boils down to how serious you are about exercise, in which case they don't really compare.

      • I don't use any exercise features on my current smart watch and won't be anyway. I'm just interested in this watch due to the $699 saving and is it worth upgrading from my current samsung galaxy watch.

        Edit: Just read that it is not a touch screen, so I won't be buying

        • +11

          Do you often consider buying something because it’s discounted even though you have no use for it? A $699 activity/fitness watch is not a smart purchase if you’re only going to use it to tell the time. Touch screen or not.

          • +1

            @Poolprouk: That is why I was asking to seek advice, now that its clear there's not much advantage over my current samsung galaxy watch, I won't be purchasing it.

            • @Homr: Yep defo wouldn't bother

  • +2

    these recent Garmin watch deals surely have something to do with their data breach earlier in the year + the about to be release of Wahoo's watch

  • Any discount on apple watches?

  • My understanding is that strength training / weight lifting tracking functionality is clunky and is no better than the Apple Watch. Can anyone please confirm?

    • +1

      I've tried it it's not super accurate on rep count but close. It correctly labeled barbell and row, I find it mostly useful to check reps and as a timer inbetween sets. But you can edit sets later and rename etc when reviewing

  • Can I control the volume and stop start audiobooks/podcasts etc with this?

    • +1

      Yes. Hold the bottom left button to access music controls mid-activity.

      • +1

        Then hold middle left to change which thing your watch controls via music providers.

        On board Spotify.
        On board music/podcasts
        Control music that's playing via your phone.

    • Same here… but such a good deal!!! Damn you Ozbargain lol

  • Hey guys. I currently have the fenix 5x. Is it worth the upgrade do you think. Happy to spend the incremental, just wondering what everyone's thoughts are?

  • Almost as good as the $675 I paid in January.
    Defo worth at the price, guessing a fenix 7 is coming soon.

    • +2

      Where / how did you manage $675?

      • +3

        There was a 50% off site wide code that was shared in the wild. I think the post was moved to the forums.

    Love my Fenix 6x Sapphire. Just wish I could settle on a watchface.

  • Why it is so popular????

    • +1

      if you dont know, leave it that way. otherwise you may end up buying.

      • really attampted !!!!! Struggling with lte smart watch or popular Garmin.
        Cannot make a decision!!!

        • +1

          For me in hindsight it's a no brainer. I've had a Fenix 3 sapphire for over 4 years. It's been a superb watch, long battery life, really tough, comfortable, quick charge, extensive metrics especially on the PC.
          In June I bought a Fossil Gen 5, nice watch, lots of functions, okish battery life once you turned off certain functions, but and a big but for me.
          Accidental screen activations
          Turning off when doing push ups as the button dug into your wrist
          Battery life 2 days vs 13 days
          Metrics a pale shadow of the garmin ones
          Slower gps lock
          Apps not as fitness focused
          Not remotely as hard wearing,already got scratches, this means I can't use it when firefighting or gardening or any activity where I might hit it
          There is a real fenix community, I've lost count of the number of times fellow fenix users have randomly spoken to me and exchanged tips etc
          Fenix has great quick release straps, cheap at Oz straps
          The tiny screen on the Fossil was novel to begin with but can't say it did my eyes any good and ended up using the phone
          The screen in bright sunlight on the Fossil is unusable whereas the fenix is always readable
          Connect external sensors such as rowers, ergs etc using Bluetooth or ANT+

          Now I haven't used the Fossil since September and I'll be selling it and have gone back to the fenix as my daily wear.

          On the fence whether to get the Fenix 6x as the 3 is still so capable. Pay and music would be the biggest upgrades but not essential.

          You can't compare a Samsung or Apple smartwatch to the Fenix, 2 different animals and purposes. Compare instead to Polar Grit or Suunto 9 or Coros Vertix. The 1st 2 are smartwatches with fitness functionality whereas the others are fitness watches with smartwatch functionality.

          The value will come down to what you use it for and what functions you value the most. For me long battery life, toughness and fitness tracking are 1.2.3

  • How does the $800 off any iPhone on the $99/month plan work? I don't want a discount, as it's a salary sacrifice thing (I can expense it, then have them take it out of my pay), but if they do it like the gift card deals then the full amount will be paid.

    • the receipt shows the full-price of the item and GC appears like another EFTPOS transaction on the receipt.
