Right now, the Garmin Forerunner 255 Music is down to just $282.90 at Amazon – the cheapest it's ever been, knocking last year's Black Friday deal price out of hte water.

The Forerunner 255 is one of the best Garmin watches for new and intermediate level runners, and is the one I recommend to anyone at my running club who asks for advice. It offers advanced tools to help you balance your training and take your running to the next level, but never becomes overwhelming. You can use as many or as few of its features as you want, and it will grow with you as you develop your fitness.
