Right now in the UK, John Lewis is having an impressive clearance sale. Luckily for you, that includes some massive savings on both the Garmin Fenix 5 and the Garmin Fenix 5S. Both are available for a fraction less than £300, which is by far the lowest price these have been on sale in the UK.

For reference, Amazon is selling the Fenix 5 for £389.99 and the Fenix 5S for £399.62, so John Lewis has by far the better price. On top of that, you also get a two-year warranty from John Lewis, rather than the standard one year.

The main difference between the Fenix 5 and 5S is the size. The Fenix 5 has a 47mm watch face, compared to the 5S' 42mm. So if your wrists are on the smaller side, you might want to opt for the more compact Fenix 5S.

Otherwise, the Fenix 5 range is one of the most advanced multi-sports trackers going, tracking everything from running to hiking, swimming, cycling, golfing and much more.

There's of course built-in GPS for accurate distance tracking, and an optical heart rate monitor. We're massive fans of the Fenix 5 range here at Wareable, awarding both models on sale here an exceptional 4.5/5 review.

In our Fenix 5 review we said: "The Garmin Fenix 5 is a superb multisports watch, which successfully packages up every element of Garmin's incredible array of specialist devices... The Garmin Fenix 5 is essentially a 6-in-1 device – more if you count the options offered by Garmin Connect IQ."

These are by far the lowest prices we've seen for both models, so we'd snap them up before they sell out or John Lewis' sale finishes.
