Top Selling GPS Watches for January

As in December, the top two best selling GPS watches in January continue to be the Garmin Forerunner 405CX and the Garmin Forerunner 305.

1. Garmin Forerunner 405CX

Garmin Forerunner 405CX gps watchThe Forerunner 405CX retains it's number one position as the best selling watch on gpswatches.org.uk in January. While this is a great watch the major driver of sales is undoubtedly the major discounting which is going out at retailers following the release of the Forerunner 410.

At the time of this post the Forerunner 405CX could be bought for £169 a massive 50% drop against the recommended retail price of £339.99. We recommended the 405CX when it was full price so it really is a no brainer purchase in our view at this sort of price.

2. Garmin Forerunner 305

The reason for this is value for money, with the 305 providing an integrated GPS watch and heart rate monitor for under £100 at the time of writing. While this is good value we would personally pay an extra £20 and pick up a Unisex Forerunner 110 which is usually cheaper than either the mens or womens version.

3. Men's Garmin Forerunner 110

The Forerunner 110 for men shades it over it's siblings this month although there was very little between the men's and unisex models in terms of sales. At the time of writing the unisex model is some £40 cheaper than the men's version and for that reason would be our preferred buy of the two models.

4. Garmin Forerunner 110 Unisex

The main reason for this appears to be price, with the Unisex model typically £30 to £40 cheaper than the women's version. Given the only difference between the models is the colour scheme, we really can't see how retailers can justify this price difference and savvy shoppers seem to agree with us.

5. Garmin Forerunner 205

This was undoubtedly due to significant price cuts by retailers in the January sales as they sought to shift their older stock.

While we have loved the 205 over the years it is now looking very dated beside it's competition. We would highly recommend you save your money and put it towards one of the FR110 series of watches.
