Amazon.ca has a Deal of the Day for the Garmin Forerunner 630, at 53% off at $259.99. This second-generation GPS (and GLONASS) running watch sports a colour touchscreen, plus supports smart notifications so you will get text and email alerts from your iPhone.
If you don’t want to fork out the big bucks for an Apple Watch, the Forerunner 630 on sale is a decent deal, as it currently sells for $550 at MEC and $269 USD on Amazon.com. It has a built in accelerometer to calculate your distance and pace data without the need for a separate foot pod. It also can track your daily activity, such as steps, calories and sleep patterns.
Battery life is pegged at 16 hours with the GPS on, while in regular mode, it can last 670 hours in watch mode (4 weeks). The lithium ion battery is user replaceable and so are the wrist straps, plus it can be paired with any ANT+ accessory, such as the Garmin heart rate monitor.
