Black Friday may have come and gone, but there's still huge discounts to be had on a range of Garmin running and sports watches. If you're waking up from your turkey coma, you've not missed out on the Black Friday deals. But don't twiddle your thumbs all the way to Cyber Monday as there's no telling how long these deals will be around.

If you're looking for a Fenix sports watch – which is one of our top picks here at Wareable, you're in luck. The launch of the Fenix 5 Plus means that the older Fenix 5 is getting big savings off that colossal price tag – and just as well.

And our old favourite the Garmin Forerunner 235 is also getting a discount. It might be getting on, but the mix of HR sensor and advanced VO2 Max analytics with a sensible price tag means it enjoys enduring popularity.

Garmin Vivoactive 3 Black Friday deals

26111-c8f9da1e708fa956def1685bc04e368a-1540314099-xPr0-column-width-inline

The Vivoactive 3 is Garmin's answer to Apple, Samsung, Fitbit and Google's Wear OS smartwatches. It gives you all those staple connected features including contactless payments, notifications and combines those with Garmin's sports tracking skills. With the arrival of the Vivoactive 3 Music (which adds a built-in music player), there's every chance the Vivoactive 3 will get discounted during the Black Friday festivities.

Garmin Fenix 5 Black Friday deals

Garmin's outdoor watch beast is probably a watch that Fenix 3 and Fenix 3 HR owners have been sizing up as an upgrade. Garmin has since introduced the Fenix 5 Plus series, which brings more smartwatch-like features to the Fenix party. But if you don't care about payments and music player support and you're all about the advanced sports tracking, the Fenix 5 series is a top candidate to get discounted.

Garmin Forerunner 235 Black Friday deals

9775-c8c092063a15ff37e11d29e02a8e3fe9-1540369522-32YX-column-width-inline

An oldie, but still a solid watch for runners. The Forerunner 235 has the sleek design, big display and serves up plenty of useful running metrics whether you're a beginner or starting to take your running more seriously. It does have a heart rate monitor on board, but it's not the best performing based on our experience. The 235 has been part of the Black Friday deals action the last couple of years, and we're tipping it to be there for 2018 too.

Garmin Vivosport Black Friday deals

If you don't want a Garmin watch but you do want something to track your outdoor activity, the Vivosport might be a better fit instead. It's the only fitness tracker in the Garmin wearable family to include built-in GPS. It also finds room to pack in a decent performing heart rate monitor and offers smartwatch features like displaying notifications and controlling music from your smartphone.

Garmin Vivofit Jr Black Friday deals

28272-253a5b5b631ea041dd68d0b3ec70b9ca-1540369604-eXQU-column-width-inline

Garmin makes fitness trackers for the kids and along with the Fitbit Ace, the Vivofit jr 2 is one of the best options for your little ones. It's designed for ages 4-7 and comes in a variety of fun, Disney-themed designs. It offers up basic fitness tracking features including sleep and the ability to make progress in adventure games when you unlock 60 minutes of active time.
