If you're after a multi-sport GPS watch but don't want something cumbersomely large on your wrist, the Fenix 5S was practically designed just for you. Right now, for Garmin Black Friday, it's had $300 wiped of the price, taking it down to half price. It's never been cheaper than this but this deal but won't stick around for long.

The Fenix 5S is going to appeal to anyone with smaller wrists, particularly women. Up next to other advanced sports watches, the rose gold and white combination here is surprisingly stylish. Something you won't utter that often when regarding a wearable that packs in quite so much.

Our reviewer, who gave it an exemplary 4.5/5 score, had this to say of the Fenix 5S: "The 5S measures 42mm, making it the smallest of the range and more accommodating for slender wrists. Obviously this is Garmin's way of targeting the female market, but the 5S isn't being explicitly sold as a "girl's watch", and as a male with small wrists, I've found it a great fit."

The Fenix 5S is essentially the Fenix 5 in a smaller package, which means it does an awful lot. "The 5S does a lot. From running to cycling to water sports and skiing – and everything in between – this watch is equipped to tackle a wide range of activities. And if it's not on the list, you can just make it yourself, either in the app or by typing it out on the watch letter by letter (yeah, a bit of a pain, but once it's saved, it's saved)."

As mentioned, this price has never been beaten. In fact it's never come close to being this low. In part this discount can be explained by the arrival of the new Fenix 6 range, but for half the money this offers much better value unless you absolutely need the latest model.

If you fancy something a bit bigger, the Fenix 5X Sapphire is also discounted to the same price. This model also includes onboard maps, useful for activities like hiking or cycling.
