Garmin Fenix 5 gets price drop... but you should hold off until Prime Day

It's definitely worth waiting for this one

Ahead of the glut of Amazon Prime Day deals, we're already seeing some drops in the price of some good pieces of tech - but this one has our spidey senses tingling.

The Garmin Fenix 5 is a robust and powerful running watch, and perfect for the multisport lover (who doesn't need Spotify on board - that's reserved for the newer Garmin Fenix 5 Plus) and it's down to £349 on Amazon UK.

However, that's not the cheapest we've seen it around - John Lewis recently plunged the price down to £299.99, which is an incredible deal for the wrist-based activity tracker.

With that in mind, we'd be tempted to wait until Prime Day (which begins on July 15 and runs for 48 hours, if you've not noticed) as it's often wearables that get big discounts during this time.

Given Amazon has previously had the Garmin Fenix 5 price as low as £299.99 as well, we know the retailer can go that low for the watch - and it could be a prime* candidate for a drop too.

While we're telling you that waiting a couple of weeks is a good idea, you're getting a lot of watches here - it was previously one of our top picks for a running watch, and while others have come in, this is still a great buy. If you find the lower price palatable, then snap it up - it's a great buy. VIEW DEAL
