(Pocket-lint) - There are a number of Black Friday discounts on Garmin devices, but this deal on the Garmin Forerunner 735XT is worth paying attention to.

Most retailers sell it for over $200, but this Black Friday discount will snag you this superb GPS multi-sports watch for $196.99 on Amazon - but only for 24 hours, so don't delay.

Why is the Forerunner 735XT a worthy device? Because it's an excellent device for runners, triathletes and fitness fans. It offers wrist-based heart rate tracking and GPS, it works with all the Garmin accessories - chest straps, cadence sensors for your bike and so on - while giving you a feature set that's close to the flagship offerings.

It will sync to your smartphone so you can easily examine your data and it will give you notifications from your phone too. A charge will last you well over a week, if not two, and it's just a great device to actually wear and train with.

You can probably tell we've spent a lot of time with the Garmin Forerunner 735XT and you'd be right. It's a slightly older model and the user interface isn't as slick as the latest models - but at this price, you're getting a serious training watch for your money thanks to some great Garmin Black Friday deals.
