Garmin Forerunner 955 review: The best runner's watch, period


Outside of the Forerunner 955 vs. 255 rivalry, you won't find another running watch this good. Though that isn't to say it's entirely flawless. Outside of the Forerunner 955 vs. 255 rivalry, you won't find another running watch this good. Though that...

Garmin Forerunner 955 review


A review of the Garmin Forerunner 955 running watch - one of the best Garmin running watches on the market.

All in all, this is a fantastic running watch, and for now, it’s the watch I want on my wrist for my next marathon.

Garmin Forerunner 955 review: the best value for money watch for serious athletes


In this review I look at the Garmin Forerunner 955. Packing almost everything Garmin has an offer, this is a sports tracking powerhouse.

A great device for serious runners and triathletes ; The addition of new recovery stats is useful ; The price is right ; Lots of health & fitness metrics ; Excellent battery life

Bulky ; Sleep tracking is not great, doesn't account for naps ; Native run power needs additional gear to work

As someone who has upgraded from the Forerunner 935, I couldn’t be more happier with my 955. It is a big step up. The device is stuffed to the brim with health and fitness tracking features.

Garmin Forerunner 955 review: Setting the pace


Garmin's premium training watch packs plenty of upgrades from the previous generation. We put it through its paces in this comprehensive review.

Helpful new insights ; Price is more reasonable ; Support for maps ; Excellent GPS and HR experience ; Improved design with touchscreen

Battery life isn't outstanding ; Solar charging is relatively gimmicky ; Running power requires external sensors ; Prohibitive pricing for first-party bands

The Forerunner 955 is a triumph, landing at a more reasonable price than its predecessor and packing significant improvements to both the hardware and software. It's not perfect, but none of these pain points significantly detract from the experience,...
