Amazon offers the Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS Running Watch in Black for $139.99 shipped. Also available at Best Buy for the same price. Normally selling for $200, that saves you 30% and is a new Amazon all-time low. The Forerunner 235 features heart-rate tracking, up to 9 days of battery life, and smart notifications.

Save a bit more and opt for the Fitbit Charge 2 at $121 instead. The main trade-off here is the smaller screen and lack of GPS tracking, but if those aren’t a must, this is a solid alternative.
