A whopping $9.15 off the last deal. Not $499 but the cheapest at the moment if you missed out.
Got mine at $574 from JB 3 days ago, loving it so far. Took it out yesterday and it was spot on, easily syncs with Strava too
Any comment on its UI and loading? I'm interested but it's 2 year old technology and my name has a 5 that he says is sluggish as buggery.
No complaints but this is my first smart/fitness watch of any kind so I have nothing to compare it to. It's a bit menu heavy but once I figured out where everything is it was ok
Do you wear it when you're sleeping? Is it comfortable?
Yeah have worn it sleeping and it's fine for me, YMMV though - it's a bit on the heavy side
Cheers! Currently have a Venu 2 but want something with an always on screen. I'm thinking the Fenix 6S might be a better option for me due to size/weight.
Why Garmin is so expensive compared to fit bit etc ?
A million more features, and therefore actually useful for people who are serious about the sports they are into.
Got the 245M recently for $309. Its a great watch. If you want to save a bit of cash and a bit of weight but not lose many features its a good option.
I'm considering between theese two. Is the 245m still good considering it's 2 years old already?
I'm finding it great for my purposes (I mainly run, non-competitive), and use the music function. Also, I'm not really a "watch person" at other times so I don't use it much except for telling time, and look at the stats later online.
A good write up: https://www.canaanvalleyhalfmarathon.com/garmin-forerunner-7...
An athlete might want the 745, and the gadget/watch fans might go with a Fenix Pro 6x or 6s - although all these options come with extra cost.
I would suggest call up jbhi and see if they can price match 549$ shipped
what store can you price match it for $549
You can go do any store. But sunshine in Victoria is the one I used
Just got an email from JB with 20% off all garmin today with code. If anyone wants mine PM me, can only be used once apparently.
Brings the fenix 6 pro down to $450ish.
PMed you, in case the deal is still going
Any tips to get this lower? Maybe gift cards?
I managed to get one from jbhifi for about $440 using a 20% off Garmin items that was running recently and Suncorp gift cards.
I've added it to my Jbhifi watchlist and cart. Maybe I'll be lucky and get an email.
Amazon Prime has a further 5% off which bring it to 545.30. Just called up JB and they price match straight away. Paid using Suncorp Gift Cards for another 5%
Would JB Hifi match Kogan with a 10% targeted voucher? I can get it for $449 from Kogan but would prefer to not buy from them
They wont do anything with Kogan. I asked before price matching with Amazon as they are selling for $499.
