When we reviewed the Instinct last year, we noted that $300 for a durable, powerful GPS watch is a steal. And when you can get that same watch for 100 bucks less? That’s a borderline miracle. The Instinct is now on sale at REI for just two Benjamins, so you can feel even better about the fact you’re getting a piece of equipment that can handle any terrain you can. This watch offers superb tracking and location accuracy, while providing info on altitude, heart rate, and pace. (You can also connect it to your phone via Bluetooth for text alerts and integration with music apps.) And with a simple user interface the Instinct’s functions are easy to master, so you can take it out to play on the trail right away. Buy the Garmin Instinct now for $200 (33% off)
