Garmin 955 solar in black. Lowest deal I've seen for solar. Price match with your store of choice. I had giftcards at Dick's and bought mine there.

If you are running, 955 even with its full price is the best deal out there and at $450 it is a no brainer. Solar on this version is more of a gimmick as it doesn't give additional juice as much as fenix/enduro lines but it is better than not having it. Only caveat though, the solar version has a tint on the glass due to solar charging built into the glass and it makes it darker and harder to see.

If you are looking for a smart watch first, then apple/samsung/google offerings may be a better fit. If you are looking for a sports watch first for run, hike and triathlon this is a no brainer, for biking it is a pretty good deal but there might be better options out there.

Better price than a lot of the "standard" 20% discounts off of Garmin. Amazing find!

Really great price and I doubt we'll see it go much lower around holiday time.

I have a brand new Instinct 2 Solar that I received as a replacement from Garmin for one that kept restarting. Might end up selling it because the screen is difficult for my old eyes to see it.
Currently using my old Fenix 3 hr. Anyone know if this 955 display is easier to read than Instinct

Keep in mind VO2 max and training status is totally messed up with the 955 - but otherwise it's a good watch. Your VO2 will never move (the latest beta was supposed to address it, but it did not). A 1 mile SUPER easy run will get classified as a tempo run. ha ha ha

Is this just a "running watch " or can it do everything the Instinct 2 solar does? Looking to buy my first Garmin watch and was looking at the Instinct 2, but this color screen with maps and music storage looks nice. Appreciate any feedback.

TIA

If only you didn't add the "ha ha ha" at the end. Lost all credibility

Also if you do one mile runs with this watch and talked about vo2 in same breath, double whammy.
Cute. I'm glad you're cooler than me and always do a proper cool-down of at least 5-6 miles so no one makes fun of you for having a 1 mile activity.

Damn, I was in a pinch when my Fitbit died, but I thought I did okay getting the regular 955 for $460 from Target back in July. Kind of wish I held out.
