Garmin lovers have luck because they can now enjoy a new product from the company. We are talking about a new update with the Garmin Forerunner 965, a sports watch that comes to offer exceptional performance with some of the best developed technologies of the company. 100% Garmin guarantee.

This Garmin Forerunner 965 is a sports watch that lands on the market to maintain the essence of the Forerunner line, with a sleek design coupled with cutting-edge features that will make all your workouts easier. Important innovations and also a large number of advanced training functions for running and triathlon so that you have under control all the data and statistics. This is what this high-end Forerunner 965 promises.

What's new in the new Garmin Forerunner 965?

The Forerunner 965 is a Garmin sports watch that comes with a small but interesting increase in size over its predecessor, the Garmin Forerunner 955. It goes from having a 13 dial to offer 1.4 inches, with a next-generation AMOLED touchscreen and the company's now classic button control.

For its part, this new Garmin model appears with a lightweight titanium bezel and two-color straps. Aesthetic details but that reinforce the resistance of the device, especially in the case of its new bezel. In addition, we are facing a heart rate monitor that will maintain a battery life of up to 23 days in smartwatch mode and up to 31 hours in GPS mode. Something that makes it more durable as far as daily use is concerned but that minimizes its sports use, hopefully in favor of greater data accuracy.

Relevant features of the Garmin Forerunner 965 for athletes

The relevant functionalities of the Garmin Forerunner 965 for athletes

This high-end GPS sports watch has the same features as the Garmin Forerunner 265 and adds: additional performance metrics, integrated mapping and the ability to store more song numbers directly on the watch. To maintain an optimal training load, runners can use the new time-based, short- or medium-term training load feature to help the user stay fit and avoid over-training. In addition, STAMINA 's real-time information tracks and manages their exertion levels, thus preventing burnout.

While the ClimbPro feature allows them to view real-time information on current and future climbs, including slope, distance and elevation gain. In addition, whether they're running on city streets or biking on trails, the integrated full-color maps will help athletes stay on track and go the distance.

As far as other features are concerned, we can expect a watch that brings together the now-typical functionality of the latest heart rate monitors, with multiple training profiles, metrics, performance data and even smart watches features such as the addition of Garmin Pay or music control. All this in a device with up to 8GB of internal memory.

Ideal Garmin Forerunner 965 runner

Garmin Forerunner 965 ideal runner.

If we have to fit this Garmin Forerunner 965 with a specific runner profile, we would associate it, as usual in the entire Garmin Forerunner range, to asphalt or triathlon runners. This is a model of maximum lightness and great precision, with multiple functionalities and sport modes that will fit better with road runners, cyclists or swimmers, than, for example, with trail runners.

It is clear that the line dedicated to this sector of athletes is the Fenix range of Garmin, much harder, and autonomy designed for long journeys. Therefore, the arrival of this new Garmin Forerunner 965 will be a great ally for road runners who need to renew their equipment. Being a high-end training device, it has a starting price of £ 599.99.
