Shortly after purchasing the 955 Garmin released the 965. Additionally Garmin did a software update post purchase changing their audio tones for power based runs where third part data screens or apps no longer work. Very disappointed.

Triathlete + Recovery

The addition of the sleep/HRV tracking has significantly improved the effort I bring to my daily workouts.

Amazing running watch, terrible sleep tracking

Background: I’ve had Apple Watches since they came out and used them as my sole fitness tracker. I decided to switch to Garmin for a much more dialed in fitness and running watch. In that aspect it far exceeds my expectations The suggested workouts and tailoring to races on specific dates is incredible. All the analytics helped me identify deficiencies in my running that I’ve since been working on. The only only negative is the sleep tracking is absolutely awful. There are nights I have to wake up in the middle of the night and take out my dogs, take work calls, etc and it counts it as light sleep despite being out of my bed or even out of my house. Sleep tracking is at the very bottom of my priorities so I personally wouldn’t hesitate to buy this again and highly recommend it to anyone who wants a fitness watch!

Do you have the time?

To call Garmin Forerunner 955 a watch is a misnomer...it's like a "Doctor on your wrist". Not only does it tell time and track your workouts, it follows you all day long to track your movements, your training readiness, even your sleep. It's long battery life requires charging only once a week (even as I run 5 days a week). If Garmin has a "gap accessory" to wear so data can be continuously collected while the Forerunner is being charged, that will make it 6 out of 5 stars.

Excellent Running Watch

I bought this watch a month ago and have had zero complaints. I had an Apple Watch before and am beyond happy with the battery life. Watch has all the ideal features for running and has been a big help with my marathon preparation.

Incredible Training Device

I just upgraded from the Fenix 5 to the 955 and I cannot believe the enhanced technology!! - Garmin pay is great and so convenient. - Audible alerts when running is great to alert me of my pace of HR zone. - The touchscreen is very convenient but doesn’t cause issues when working out. - Download music for listening when I want to preserve my phone battery on king rides. - The morning report of sleep, recovery HRV etc gives me imperial data on my recovery from the prior day. - the display is magnificent - it’s lighter, but looks like a watch ready to workout - I wish it had the quick release watch band, but you can convert the watch to quick release yourself so you can easily switch bands to match your bike, run kit out business attire. My only regret is that I waited so long to upgrade!

Everything I could possibly need!

I’ve been looking to upgrade from my Forerunner 735XT to something more advanced with all the bells and whistles I could need. This watch is the lightweight Forerunner that I’ve come to love but with all the wellness and fitness stats that I’ve been looking for. I also love that it has the maps and navigation. I haven’t used them yet, but I wanted a device that included navigation for exploring unfamiliar trails. I love this watch!

Excellent update to 945

After a few weeks, I’m loving the much better battery life and excellent GPS accuracy born from the multiband functionality compared to my previous 945LTE.
