The Garmin Forerunner 255 Music is one of the best watches for new runners, and right now it's on sale at Amazon for just $290. That's the cheapest we've seen this feature-packed GPS watch, and knocks last year's Black Friday deals out of the water.

The Forerunner 255 is one of Garmin's most affordable running watches, but it doesn't skimp on features. When I tested it, I was particularly impressed by the accuracy of its dual-band GPS, which proved excellent even in tricky locations. Its biometrics compare well with watches costing twice as much, and it's lightweight and comfortable to wear.
