Save big on your favorite Garmin smartwatch in this huge Black Friday sale
One of the many reasons why Garmin is emerging as a bigger and bigger threat for Samsung, Huawei, and yes, even Apple in the global smartwatch market is that you can buy at least a few of the company's most popular devices at special prices essentially at any given time.

With that in mind, you shouldn't be surprised to see multiple Fenix and Forerunner variants, as well as the Vivomove HR hybrid model, added to our lengthy list of the best Black Friday smartwatch deals of 2020 that already included a couple of Vivoactive family members, as well as the mainstream Apple Watch-rivaling Garmin Venu.

You don't have a lot of time to take advantage of these amazing new Black Friday offers, mind you, as Amazon plans to wrap them all up at the end of the day... before presumably bringing back some bargains for Cyber Monday. It's probably not wise to count on that, though, especially when you can save a whopping $400 on something like the Garmin Fenix 5S Plus right now.

This is an incredibly robust device that includes color TOPO maps in addition to standalone GPS, Glonass, and Galileo technology to help guide you wherever your outdoor workouts might take you, no matter how remote or challenging an environment we're talking about. With a sharp 1.2-inch display also in tow and up to 7 days of battery life in "smartwatch mode", this bad boy normally costs $799.99, which means you're looking at a full 50 percent price cut today only. 

The same 50 percent markdown currently applies to the "regular" Garmin Fenix 5S and the Fenix 5X Sapphire, equating however to slightly humbler savings of $250 and $300 respectively. Both these models come with a bunch of advanced sensors and health monitoring tools, as well as stellar battery life, but only the costlier variant features a scratch-resistant sapphire lens and pre-loaded topographic maps.

Meanwhile, the Forerunner 935 and Forerunner 645 Music cater primarily to, well, runners on relatively tight budgets, each fetching $235 less than usual. As the name suggests, the latter model supports offline listening of your favorite tracks and albums from "select" streaming services, while the former stands out with a battery life of up to two weeks (!!!) between charges.

The Garmin Vivomove HR is another interesting device on sale at the time of this writing, going for 50 percent off its $299.99 regular price with "hybrid" functionality and 24/7 heart rate tracking technology. Last but not necessarily least, the kid-friendly Vivofit Jr. activity tracker can be yours for $40 less than usual, also equating to a 50 percent discount.
