I've trained for various running events wearing the Garmin Fenix 7X, and it's my ride-or-die of a running watch.

Why buy the Garmin Fenix 7X Solar this Black Friday
Where do I begin? I'll run through a few of the features I love on this watch. The watch takes all your metrics and tailors this to helpful feedback throughout your running journey. The Fenix 7X Solar will tell me via something labeled my 'Training Readiness' when I am pushing myself and need to prioritize my sleep or exercise recovery and not in a condescending way, which I like.
It also estimates your race pace for a distance you are hoping to run based on your running history and overall fitness level. I find this to be a good benchmark when I take on a new challenge and can gauge whether I am feeling overly ambitious.
It also has extremely handy functions like TracBack that, when selected, will navigate you back to the starting point of an activity. I am not the best with directions, so the Garmin Fenix 7X has been a real lifesaver when getting lost on a rural run in the South of France or helping my sister and I navigate our way down a Munro (a Scottish mountain with an elevation of more than 3,000 feet) after losing the route we came up.
I also have to mention the solar charging capabilities on the watch, which are an absolute game-changer, especially for those who love spending time exercising in the outdoors as the sunshine will top your watch battery up on the go.
If you've been thinking about buying the Fenix 7X Solar, I highly recommend taking advantage of this Black Friday deal. Save over $200 while stocks last, and experience the many capabilities of this rugged running watch.
