If you're on the market for a new running watch but don't want something that costs the price of a short vacation, you should check out this Garmin deal that sees the trusty Garmin Forerunner 945 reduced to $329 at Amazon right now.

We previously spotted this running watch on sale for $280 back in May  but still think this is an awesome deal that will be snapped up quickly if you don't act quick. 

As the Garmin Forerunner 945 is an older model, it no longer has a spot in our guide to the best running watches with the more recent Garmin Forerunner 965 taking it's place. However, it remains a steadfast favorite of ours for its reliability as a running watch.

This is one of the lowest prices we have seen the Garmin Forerunner 945 on sale for. It may not be the latest Forerunner model but it's packed with essential features that benefit the training of runners and triathletes. In addition to excellent sports tracking and training analysis, the 945 features music storage and color maps. Snag this excellent Garmin deal now and save $170!

If you're deciding between the Forerunner 945 and the Forerunner 955, the key differences to note are that the Forerunner 945 lacks dual-band GPS tracking and some of the advanced training analysis found in the Forerunner 955. 

While these features are appealing, they are not essential. Choosing the Forerunner 945 still gives you a durable, high-performing running watch at a lower price, especially with this current deal on Amazon.

Based on my personal experience, the Forerunner 945 was my first Garmin watch and a crucial tool in my running journey. After quitting track events as a teen, a friend gave me their Forerunner 945 years later, and it reignited my passion for consistent training and casual racing. Whether it's your first running watch or your fifth, we highly recommend the Forerunner 945.
