Save $56.99 If you're a new runner looking for your first GPS watch, this one fits the bill perfectly and will help you build up to your first races. It's back down to its lowest ever price at Amazon right now.

If you choose to wear your watch all day, you can also see how you're recovering post-run, with full details available in the Garmin Connect mobile app.

If you're aiming to set a new personal record, you can also use Garmin's free coaching tool (also found within the mobile app) to build a training plan that will help you get there, and will adjust on the fly depending on your performance.

It's a great little watch, and with up to seven days of battery life (depending on how you use it), you won't need to plug it in every night either.
