What is the best Garmin smartwatch?

In our roundup of the best Garmin smartwatches that money can buy, we chose the Garmin Forerunner 265 as the best overall pick. That watch boasts a vibrant and crystal-clear AMOLED display, a ton of fitness features, and up to 15 days of battery life on a single charge. Although it's not currently included in the Best Buy sale, you can buy the Forerunner 265 from Amazon for $424.99 today, which is a 6% discount. 

What health metrics do Garmin watches monitor?

Like all the best fitness smartwatches and trackers out there, Garmin watches offer 24/7 heart rate data and comprehensive sleep tracking alongside respiration, hydration, menstrual cycle, and Pulse Ox monitoring. They'll use this info to provide sleep scores and Body Battery data. Alongside all of this health and fitness tracking technology, Garmin watches generally come with a bounty of activity modes and useful features you'd look for in a smartwatch, such as built-in GPS, virtual assistant support, and the ability to make and receive calls. 

Can I use a Garmin watch without a phone?

Most Garmin watches have built-in GPS, which means you can do most things on your watch without having a phone on you. That being said, there are some features that you can only access by having a smartphone present. 

For example, you can't make phone calls from your Garmin watch if you're outside of Bluetooth range, but you can, however, use the watch to track your health metrics and record activity.
