Amazon has jumped the Black Friday gun and is shooting off discounts in earnest - but just how good are those deals, really?

The good news is that we've been tracking Amazon prices between the past 12 months  to 24 months. With that data to hand, we've identified two particular mega deals on Garmin smartwatches, with these models hitting the *lowest prices ever* on Amazon - as well as undercutting (or at least matching) all other retailers we've seen.

Garmin Fenix 7S Solar: was $799.99 now $599.99 at Amazon

Garmin Fenix 7S Solar: <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=107654&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2FGarmin-adventure-smartwatch-Capabilities-touchscreen%2Fdp%2FB09NMKQW37%2Fref%3Dsr_1_3%3Ftag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"">was $799.99, now $599.99 at Amazon

There have been a few good discounts here over the past 12 months - but none of those matched this $200 saving (25% reduction) on the Garmin Fenix 7S Solar. This its lowest ever price on Amazon. 

Garmin Fenix 7S Solar: was £689.99 now £547.60 at Amazon

Garmin Fenix 7S Solar: <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=107654&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.co.uk%2FGarmin-f%25C4%2593nix-Solar-Multisport-Watch%2Fdp%2FB09M47JZZQ%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Ftag%3Dhawk-future-21%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-21" data-link-merchant="Amazon UK"">was £689.99, now £547.60 at Amazon

A heads up for the UK - this isn't the best price Amazon has ever sold this watch. Back in August it was retailing a little cheaper at around £523.00. Still, this current reduction is the lowest its been since those heady summer day - so not a bad deal, if not the 'best ever'.


Garmin Epix 2: was $799.99 now $449.00 at Amazon

Garmin Epix 2: <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=107654&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2FGarmin-smartwatch-wellness-touchscreen-adventure%2Fdp%2FB09NML7BF7%3Ftag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"">was $799.99, now $449.00 at Amazon

Amazon confirms that this 44% reduction is the lowest price price in the last 30 days - it's actually the cheapest it's been in 670 days, price matching <a href="https://goto.walmart.com/c/1943169/565706/9383?subId1=hawk-custom-tracking&sharedId=hawk&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.walmart.com%2Fip%2FGarmin-Epix-Gen-2-47mm-GPS-Smartwatch-Slate-Steel-010-02582-00%2F606059975" data-link-merchant="walmart.com"" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"">Walmart and undercutting all other sites we've seen, from <a href="https://classic.avantlink.com/click.php?tt=cl&mi=10248&pw=27131&ctc=hawk-custom-tracking&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.rei.com%2Fproduct%2F211628%2Fgarmin-epix-gen-2-sapphire-multisport-gps-watch" data-link-merchant="rei.com"" data-link-merchant="walmart.com"" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"">REI to <a href="https://shop-links.co/link?publisher_slug=future&exclusive=1&u1=hawk-custom-tracking&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bestbuy.com%2Fsite%2Fgarmin-epix-gen-2-gps-smartwatch-47mm-fiber-reinforced-polymer-steel%2F6494393.p&article_name=hawk-article-name&article_url=hawk-article-url" data-link-merchant="bestbuy.com"" data-link-merchant="rei.com"" data-link-merchant="walmart.com"" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"">BestBuy.

Garmin Epix 2: was £580.00 now £484.99 at Amazon

Garmin Epix 2: <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=107654&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.co.uk%2FGarmin-Premium-Smartwatch-Stainless-Silicone%2Fdp%2FB09M49ZC8R%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1_sspa%3Ftag%3Dhawk-future-21%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-21" data-link-merchant="Amazon UK"">was £580.00, now £484.99 at Amazon

For context: the Epix 2 briefly dropped to £400.00 in May 2022 - a truly mega deal that has never yet been repeated. But aside from that - the current price is the cheapest that Garmin Epix 2 has ever been on Amazon.
