The Cyber Monday Garmin sales are here, and many are the same as the Black Friday deals which launched a few days ago. They’re still find all the top deals below, which are still in stock.

We’re seeing big savings on the Garmin Fenix 6 range in particular, but there are discounts across a wide variety of Garmin wearables, with more possibly still to come.

That said, some years we don’t see much in the way of new offers on Cyber Monday itself, with retailers instead continuing their Black Friday deals, so if you see something tempting you might as well buy it now, as the deals likely won’t get any better.

Below we’ve highlighted all the best deals so far, and we’ll be updating this article if and when new deals arrive, so keep it bookmarked if you don’t spot anything you want yet.

Our predictions

Based on what we saw last year we can take a good guess at some of the Garmin deals that we might see on Cyber Monday 2021. They include the following:

  • Garmin Instinct: last year this was reduced by up to $130, so expect big savings.
  • Garmin Fenix 6 range: some of the Fenix 6 models saw three-figure discounts in both the US and UK in 2020, so keep an eye on these watches this year – already the Fenix 6 Pro has seen a £200 discount in the UK, so that bodes well.
  • Garmin Vivomove Style: this got a hefty £70 discount in the UK last year, and may drop even further this year.
  • Garmin Vivoactive 3: this saw a healthy $120 discount in 2020, taking almost 50% off the price, so it could be a real bargain again this year.
  • Garmin Forerunner 45S: this only got a smaller $50 discount in 2020, but we could see that increase this year.

Tips for buying a Garmin watch

Garmin makes a wide range of wearables at different prices and for different types of users, so it can be tricky finding the right one.

It can also be tricky finding the best deals, even on sales days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but we’ve got some tips to help.

1. Check out our best Garmin guide

It’s worth working out what you want to buy before you even head into the sales, and your first stop for that should be our best Garmin watch guide, where we’ve highlighted all the top options.

Don’t just go for our number one pick though, as something else might suit you better – some Garmin wearables are aimed at serious athletes, while others are more for those just dipping their toes in, and some focus on specific sports too. So it’s worth taking a look at all the best options.

2. Keep an eye out for dodgy deals

Not every deal is a good deal, even if it looks good. A discount of 50% off RRP for example might look great, until you realize that nowhere is selling the device at full price.

So it’s worth checking the prices elsewhere before pressing the buy button, or even using a tool like The Camelizer to see price history for the site you’re on. Or just stick with TechRadar, as we’ll only be highlighting genuine deals here.

3. Watch for big deals on older models

The latest Garmin watches may well get discounted on Cyber Monday, but older models are far more likely to – and are likely to get biggest discounts.

Retailers will be looking to clear their stock to make way for the shiny new hardware, so big savings can often be had. And just because a model is older, it doesn’t mean it’s not still great.

Cyber Monday Garmin FAQ

When will the best Cyber Monday Garmin deals start in 2021?

The very best Cyber Monday Garmin deals are likely to be on Cyber Monday itself – that’s November 29. However, you might see some similarly good deals on Black Friday (November 26) and on the weekend between those two dates.

There will be some discounts ahead of even Black Friday too, but for the most part these probably won’t be quite as good, going by previous years.

Still, if you’re in the market for a new Garmin then it’s worth checking back on this page regularly between now and Cyber Monday, as we’re already seeing major discounts pop up on a few models.

Where will the best Cyber Monday Garmin deals be?

The best place to find Garmin deals on Cyber Monday will be this very page and the wider TechRadar site, as we’ll be scouring the net for all the top options and highlighting them here. But if you want to conduct a search of your own then the following stores would be a good place to start.

Top US retailers
Amazon

Should I wait for Cyber Monday Garmin deals?

The big question in the run up to a sale like Cyber Monday is whether it’s worth waiting, or whether you should just buy now.

In the case of Garmin watches, there’s a good chance you’ll find some great deals on select models based on previous years – but there’s no guarantee that the specific model you’re interested in will get a hefty discount. So if you’re set on one particular Garmin, you might not gain anything by waiting.

If you buy one now on the other hand then you gain the ability to start using it sooner, so if you’re desperate to have one then that’s another reason to buy now.

But generally now that we’re getting close to Cyber Monday we’d suggest waiting, as other than getting the wearable later you don’t lose out by waiting, and you might gain a big saving.

That is, unless you see a great deal in early sales, as we’re starting to see on a few models. You’ll find all the best current deals further up in this article, so consider grabbing one of those if any catch your eye.

3 best Garmin watches to look out for

Garmin Fenix 6 with black band

1. Garmin Fenix 6

The best Garmin watch overall

Screen size: 1.3-inch diameter | Touchscreen: No | Battery life using GPS: 36 hours | Battery life on standby: 14 days | Onboard storage: 64MB | Bluetooth connection: Yes | Smartwatch capabilities: Yes | Multisport: Loads of them

Can’t be beaten for outdoor tracking

Accurate activity tracking

Very expensive

Not the most stylish of watches

The Garmin Fenix 6 is for our money the best Garmin watch. It’s not cheap, but it could become a lot more palatable on Cyber Monday, with prices likely to plummet for the sale.

Really it’s the whole Fenix 6 range that we rate at the top – they’re all unsurpassed multi-sport smartwatches with comprehensive activity tracking, great battery life and strong performance.

Even with a Cyber Monday discount this might not be for you if you’re not a serious athlete or outdoorsperson, but if you want a watch that won’t let you down whether you’re running a marathon or hiking a trail, this is the one for you.

Garmin Venu 2 with gray band

2. Garmin Venu 2

The best Garmin watch for all-day wear

Screen size: 1.3-inch or 1.1-inch diameter | Touchscreen: Yes | Battery life using GPS: Up to 8 hours with music, 22 hours without | Battery life on standby: Up to 12 days | Onboard storage: 200 hours activity data, 650 songs | Bluetooth connection: Yes | Smartwatch capabilities: Yes | Multisport: Dozens

Available in two sizes

Superb AMOLED display

Great fitness tracking features

Limited app support

The Garmin Venu 2 is a mid-range wearable that does a great job of functioning both as a conventional smartwatch and as a sports watch.

Unlike many Garmin devices this has a fairly stylish, sleek design, yet it still has all the features you need when training outdoors or in, including GPS, heart rate monitoring, cadence tracking and a whole lot more.

The Venu 2 only launched in 2021 so we don’t have any Cyber Monday history for it, but the original Garmin Venu did get a solid $100 discount last year, and Garmin wearables in general tend to get reduced, so we wouldn’t be surprised if there are some decent deals on this too.

Garmin Forerunner 55 with white band

3. Garmin Forerunner 55

The best Garmin watch for new runners

Screen size: 1.04-inch x 1.04-inch | Touchscreen: No | Battery life using GPS: 20 hours | Battery life on standby: 14 days | Onboard storage: 200 hours of data | Bluetooth connection: Yes | Smartwatch capabilities: Yes | Multisport: Cycling | Inbuilt heart-rate monitor: Yes

Lightweight

Good value

Limited sport profiles

Plastic-heavy build

If you’re after a budget Garmin watch then the Garmin Forerunner 55 is a top choice, especially if you’re a runner.

There’s no touchscreen, but the five hardware buttons that you get instead are arguably easier to use mid-run, and with suggested workouts and post-training advice this wearable goes beyond just tracking – it also gives you the insights you need to train better.

We found that it had extremely accurate GPS too, and it’s a bit of a bargain even when it’s not discounted, so this could be a low-end star of Cyber Monday if there are any decent deals on it.
