The Garmin Demo Program

Try a Garmin Running Watch before you buy!

Are you thinking about taking a leap into a GPS watch purchase? With so many different styles, models and features to choose from – it’s hard to know which will be the best for you. Garmin is the leading running GPS watch on the market, and we offer you the opportunity to try one first through our demo rental program!

How does the demo program work?

We have a variety of the top Garmin Running Watches available for you to rent for one week. The cost to rent a watch for one week is $40. If you decide after your rental period that you would like to purchase Garmin watch, your $40 rental fee will be applied to your final purchase. If you decide after your rental experience that it is just not for you, then there is no obligation to purchase.

How do I rent a Garmin Running Watch?

Stop into any Run Away Shoes location and express your interest in the Garmin Demo Program. We will have you complete a short rental form, collect the $40 fee and get you set up with the rental model of your choice (based on availability). That’s it!

Demo units returned on time may be exchanged for a second unit for an additional 7 days without additional fees.

On time return of the demo unit(s) entitles the original borrower to a $40.00 credit towards the purchase of a GPS unit for 30 days following the original rental date.

This credit is non-transferable and may only be applied to the purchase of a GPS unit.

Rental Period Details

All demo units are due 7 days from the date of the rental by 5 PM. Units returned late will forfeit the full rental credit and no further rental units will be issued. Units not returned within 10 days will be charged the full deposit amount shown above. Please inform us if you are unable to return the demo unit in time to avoid unplanned charges.
