If you're quick, you can snag the powerful, super bright Garmin Forerunner 265S running watch for just $380 at Amazon today. That's a massive $69.99 off the list price, and the cheapest this superb running watch has ever been.

This is the more compact version of the standard Forerunner 265, with the same vivid AMOLED display and next-gen optical heart rate sensor, but a smaller 42mm diameter case that won't overwhelm your wrist. When I tested it last year, I was vey impressed by how much of an upgrade it is from its predecessor, the Forerunner 255. 

"The Garmin Forerunner 255 was an excellent sports watch, and the 265 takes all its best features and adds an extra coat of polish," I concluded. "Not only does its upgraded screen look better, its touch controls make the whole experience of using the watch smoother and easier."
