Like 'kleenex' for tissues or 'hoover' for vacuum cleaner, 'Garmin' is fast becoming an anepronym for 'cycling head unit'. That's how total the US brand's dominance of the market is.

Garmin also now owns Tacx, the Dutch manufacturer of indoor training hardware.

The January Sales period offers an ideal opportunity to pick up a Garmin bike computer, GPS smartwatch or Tacx turbo trainer at a big discount - whether you're shopping for gifts or treating yourself. 

We've tracked down the best deals on the internet from the biggest retailers and have listed them below with our take on the product and the price. There are links to our reviews, too.
