(Pocket-lint) - Garmin's Forerunner 45 and 45S have been given their biggest price cut of 2021, with the entry-level sports watches seeing significant reductions on Amazon UK.

Typically, the RRP for both devices rests at £159.99, with the asking price usually hovering around £150. With this latest limited-time saving, though, each is available for £115, a total saving of £44.99

It's the lowest price we've seen the Garmin models hit since Black Friday (where they reached £110), with the previous low before that being Amazon Prime Day in July 2020 (where they were available for £116).

So, unless you want to wait it out for a big sales holiday, this would appear to be the perfect time strike.


The Garmin Forerunner 45 has a full range of fitness tracking features, including GPS and optical heart rate from the scanner on the rear of the watch. The Garmin 45S, of course, offers the same array of features just in a smaller body.

Both connect to your phone using Garmin Connect, so you can easily get to all your data, but also so you can get smartphone notifications from your phone when you're wearing the watch.

There's support for a full range of different sports, too - including cycling, cardio, yoga and many more, as well as full coaching features so you can adapt your activity your improving fitness. 

In our review, the model received a glowing 4.5/5 stars. We said: "This watch sticks to the basics, but if you're looking for a simple and easy-to-use running watch, plus some added smartwatch features, the Forerunner 45 definitely fits the bill."

Like any limited-time deal outside of Amazon's typical sales windows, it's impossible to know how long this deal will stick around.

However, as we say, we do know that these deals don't typically pop up very often, so it's best not to dawdle.
