Entry level Forerunner for sale at Amazon on "limited time deal".
Not the first time that this has been half price (last time was in July I think). I'm starting to appreciate that the pricing of Garmins are quite similar to Kathmandu, i.e. high RRPs with cyclical deep discounts. Was it always this way or is it a recent pandemic pricing strategy?
Device comes in a Small and Large size, but the Large size only is on sale.
This model has been superseded by the Forerunner 55, but like most of these devices the new model is a new iteration with incremental improvements. Several improvements and new features, but double the price. 45 could be fine for many people's needs.
Official Garmin page for 45s with list of features. (Note 45 and 45s are the same, except the 45s has thinner bezel to make the overall watch smaller.)
Get JB or another bricks and mortar to price match so you have more convenient options if you have any warranty issues.
