The premium Forerunner 965 series joins the intermediate Forerunner 265 series in adopting AMOLED displays, making the complete portfolio now outfitted with them. Even on the hottest days, runners may more easily examine their numbers thanks to the display's brighter appearance. Additionally, it brings the OLED panels found on the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra on par with the display quality offered by Garmin.

The watches have sensors built in that can monitor cadence, stride length, ground contact duration, and more without the use of other devices. You can also start each day with a morning report and a training readiness score to help you decide if it's better to push yourself throughout your daily workouts or take it easy. This score considers aspects like sleep quality, heart rate variability, status, and even the weather. To make sure you're steadily progressing toward your goals, personalized daily advised exercises adjust to your performance and recovery metrics while taking into account any forthcoming races you have scheduled in your Garmin Connect calendar. Forerunner 965 Garmin's new Forerunner 965, a straight replacement for the Forerunner 955, continues to be the industry-leading GPS running smartwatch. While it's arguable that the entire Garmin wristwatch collection is made for serious runners, this one is for athletes who want to go above to have the most attractive and feature-rich running smartwatch available.

With enhanced premium training data and recovery insights, Garmin's smartwatch offers much more than just nice looks to help you perform at your best and get ready for your next major race. The Forerunner 965 features pre-built profiles that may be switched between and selected for triathlons, duathlons, block workouts, and swim runs in addition to the additional advanced training measures. Also, you can create your own multi-sport profiles. A unique new load ratio function aids athletes in staying on top of their training schedules while remaining healthy and preventing setbacks. Full-color mapping features complete this and help you stay on course whether you're jogging on mountain trails or through metropolitan streets. For those mountain hikes, Garmin's ClimbPro feature offers real-time information on gradient, distance, and elevation gain. Multiband GNSS with SatIQ technology gives extremely accurate positioning. The fact that Garmin's smartwatches still gauge battery life in days rather than hours is perhaps its best feature. A single charge will last you an astounding 23 days in smartwatch mode and 31 hours while running in GPS mode. Forerunner 265 Series Much of the same performance-monitoring features are available on Garmin's Forerunner 265 at a lower cost. The beautiful AMOLED touchscreen, sophisticated fitness metrics, and coaching functions will all still be present even though full-color mapping and the sizable titanium-ringed display are not included. VO2 max, performance condition, and training effect are some of the tools from Garmin Firstbeat Analytics that are included in this. With Garmin Coach plans from professional coaches and daily suggested workouts based on your race schedule in Garmin Connect, adaptive training plan options help you get ready for your next event.

While the larger Forerunner 265 comes in at 20 hours in GPS mode and up to 13 days in smartwatch mode, the smaller 265S model promises 24 hours of GPS-based runs and 15 days in regular smartwatch mode. All the features you'd anticipate from a regular smartwatch are also present with the Forerunner 265 Series and Forerunner 965, including notifications and support for Spotify, Deezer, or Amazon Music so you can listen to music while running without using your phone. Also, you receive incident detection, LiveTrack, and support for contactless payments with Garmin Pay as security features. Cost and accessibility The Garmin Forerunner 965 will be sold for a suggested retail price of $600 in late March. There are two variants in the Forerunner 265 Series: the 42mm Forerunner 265S and the 46mm Forerunner 265. Both are now offered for the same $450 price.
